A quaint and comfortable studio apartment with a spacious bathroom and jacuzzi along with a kitchenette with all the basics. This space is perfect for adventurers that seeks a space nestled in a tropical garden near a majestic, breezy ocean view.

The space

Our little piece of paradise is located in a semi off-grid area in a blooming tropical garden. Just around the bend to the red road and a short walk to Kehena black sand beach. We're close enough to the ocean to hear the whales blowing and slapping their tails when in season. This 600 square foot modern studio apartment is bright, airy, and clean. It has WiFi and phone (outgoing calls only) located in the front lanai. You will enjoy a private lanai with lovely table with swivel rockers. The large bathroom is done in imported Italian blue tiles and features a whirlpool tub and rain shower. The kitchenette has a induction burner, microwave, toaster, smoothie blender, coffee maker, coffee grinder, dishes, pots and pans, sink, and half size refrigerator. A queen size bed, dining area for two and comfortable reading chair complete this amazing space. There is also a washer & dryer including soap, upon request.

Nearby natural hot springs and tide pools offer awesome snorkeling, soaking and swimming in safe warm water, right at the ocean's edge. You can also explore the old Hawaiian town of Pahoa, a twenty minutes drive away with its wooden board walks, many restaurants and markets.

Such a lovely place, peaceful and cozy. Great weekend getaway spot. The hosts are so friendly and helpful. We've found our weekend getaway spot in Puna. The lanai is perfect for morning coffee (which was provided for us). Very clean and comfortable. Very close to lava viewing area and plenty of beach parks to enjoy. Even though we live on island, I think we will visit often as a peaceful retreat. Well worth every penny. Perfect in every way.

A little piece of paradise... this place is great and the host is well prepare with awesome tips! Walk 5 minutes and have your coffee by the ocean enjoying a beautiful sunrise. Really close to Kalapana Lava viewing point (a must see on the island) and a short drive from Hilo, the botanical gardens, and Rainbow, Peepee, and Akaka falls. Drive north to the Champagne Ponds... the drive alone is worth the trip soooo beautiful.

Being welcomed by Robert and Iris was a special touch. Robert supplied us with rice to dry out one of our phones that got wet. This clean studio apt. was perfect for our two evening stay, equipped with everything we needed. We appreciated having beach towels, cooler, flash lights, informational books, first aid kit, and lanai. The location to water and lava activities is awesome. We did a lot in our two days. If you have 4 WD we recommend Champagne Pond. The bike ride out to see lava flow into the ocean was memorable.

Great location. Would go back. Very clean. Jet tub was awesome. Very warm sleeping at night and fans didn't help much.

Most of people that knows me would say - I'm small, but mighty! Current state of my existence consist of work, travel and a busy household. Along with trips back and forth to Hawaii from CA throughout the year. A wanderlust at heart; I'm constantly on the move and have multiple projects going and trying to find time for new adventures.

I work as a graphic designer and a freelance photographer. I also run my humble multiple unit vacation property in Hawaii. During my non busy days, I spend my time relaxing with family and catching up with friends!
Also finding time to follow my passion through modern painting and anything handmade. A soft heart for animals and mostly enjoy the company of adventure seeking long life friends and a love for laughter.

Future travel plans are investing more of my adventure time in the Big Island and explore the raw beauty of my second home.
