About This Listing
Aloha and E Komo Mai! Welcome to our vacation home in one of the Big Island’s most beautiful "secret" vacation spots, Kehena black sand beach in Puna Beach Palisades. Situated on the eastern coast of the Big Island, away from major "manicured" tourist developments, Puna Beach Palisades holds the serenity and unmarred beauty of an island paradise. Lush rainforests, jaw-dropping coastlines, and some of the freshest air in the world! While on the "wet-side" of the island, it doesn't have the desert-like heat of Kona, and gets a lot less rain than Hilo (only ~ 70 inches/year, compared to Hilo's 135 inches/year).
An easy drive to beautiful waterfalls, world class snorkeling, Volcano National Park, excellent restaurants, and exploration of the active lava flow & beach.
Our newly constucted tropical retreat has 3 bedrooms, with 2 California-king size beds and 1 Queen. 2 ½ baths, Master bathroom has Jacuzzi tub, separate rain-fall shower & double sinks. Our 2nd bathroom adjoins to a unique “private” outdoor lava-rock shower with 2 shower heads and river-rock floor for a natural foot massage!
Other features include a beautiful gourmet kitchen, comfortable open living room, formal dining room that seats 8 or simply enjoy dining in our spacious covered lanai from which you can enjoy ocean views and fragrant tropical breezes.
Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean waves and enjoy the fantastic sunrises.
Great for a quiet romantic getaway, rejuvinating-healing retreat, or a family reunion.
An excellent way to experience the natural beauty and majesty of Hawaii in style and comfort.
$180/night based on 4 guests, $15/night for each additional guest (upto 8)
As this is a newly built house (d appreciate it if you would enjoy it with care and respect.
We had such a great experience here at the Lotus Home! We arrived earlier in the day of the booking and John was very responsive on directions the the place and getting the keys to the space as we booked the place very last minute. We LOVED the location ! a quiet neighborhood that had that extra relaxing feel to it , not sure if it was the sweet wind blowing the magic of the forest or what it was.... not far away is a few markets in pahoa where you can buy your own foods or the very community based bar/resturaunt uncle roberts at the end of the road. Thanks again to John as we will be back!
We really enjoyed staying at the lotus residence. The house was beautiful with a fantastic kitchen.
The Lotus Residence is just beautiful ... well-appointed and very comfortable, in a quiet neighborhood with wonderful views. If you are coming in at night, however, keep in mind that the road in is very dark. We found the home very easily with a combination of John's excellent directions and our car's GPS. There is no cell service in the area whatsoever, but the house has a strong wifi connection. We were able to communicate home through Skype.
John was very hospitable! He even allowed us to stay past our check-out time so we could further enjoy our stay before catching a night flight home. There is much to do in the area (be sure to check out the handy guide binder John has put together), although it is a bit of a drive to Hilo, which is where most of our time on this trip was spent (we came for Merrie Monarch). As the home is a far from the town, be sure to stop for groceries before you make the drive.
Mahalo nui loa, John! We hope to stay in your lovely home again!
The house and location was wonderful! Our extended family of 8 was very comfortable!
