Relax in your own jungle retreat, just seconds from Pahoa's eclectic cafes and galleries and surrounded by the natural wonders of Puna and current lava flows. Enjoy the wonders of a tropical rain-forest from the comfort of your private lanai (porch) high above the jungle.
Here, the sun and the rain do all the work and provide us with a year-round crop of rainbows, happy guests and fresh
organic treats. Enjoy bananas, tangerines, passion fruit and avocado (seasonal). We also provide fresh farm eggs from our chickens as available.
Outside your living room door lies your private two acre jungle sanctuary, home to native birds, exotic plants and towering trees. Here, the hidden realms of nature are revealed, creating a great place to meditate and listen to the forest.
With three bedrooms and 1.5 baths and a big living room and porch, it's perfect for a family retreat. Can sleep up to 6.
The Location is great too! Less than a mile from Pahoa Village
with great places to eat and shop. Swimming and snorkeling at warm ponds and black sand beaches is just 20 minutes away and the Volcanoes National Park is about 45 minutes.

The Jungle Farmhouse was perfect for our two week stay in the Pahoa area. We loved the house, loved the location, and enjoyed Danny, Matthew, and all the animals.
This is our third visit to the area, so we know what to expect, and the Jungle Farmhouse is just what we were looking for. It is not a fancy new condo with granite countertops, rather it is a pleasant, homey place with a story to tell. It is a real Hawaiian single wall construction style house with cedar walls and great old louvre windows to let the breezes through. It is clean and nicely appointed with fun vintage furniture and artwork and the big screened lanai is a great place to hang out and listen to the jungle. Danny and Matthew live right behind the house in a small ohana and while it is quite close, we never felt intruded upon, Danny and Matthew are quiet and friendly and gave us plenty of space (even my husband, Mr. Antisocial, didn't mind a bit). With them on site, we didn't even bother to lock our doors.
From the Farmhouse it's under 15 minutes to the tidepools, 10 minutes to the boat ramp (Isaac Hale park) or the big warm bath and literally two minutes to town, although you'd never know it.
My only complaint is that we were so close to town we ate out way more than we usually do! Pahoa has some great fun and funky restaurants.
The Pahoa area itself is laid back and friendly. Lots of aloha, if you smile and wave, you get a smile and a wave back. It's honestly one of the friendliest places I've ever been. We'll be back....
First off, Danny was a wonderful host. He communicated promptly and clearly prior to our arrival. He greeted us upon arrival, gave us the tour of the house, and offered other helpful information.
My cousin and I brought my very active 91 year old aunt to Hawaii with us. Staying in a hotel would not provide the optimal bonding and interaction we wanted, so Danny's house was a great find. My aunt grew up raising chickens, so she was delighted with all the animals at Jungle House ( chickens, goats, dogs, ducks, cats, etc ). She loved her trip to the compost bin every morning as she was greeted by the animals.
Danny made my aunt feel very welcome and special. He gave her some tangerines from his tree, free reign on bananas right outside our door, and a dozen farm fresh eggs.
Our days were spent doing tourist things on the island but it was so nice to come "home" to a warm and welcoming house. Although our intention was to eat dinner out most nights to experience the local restaurants, we discovered we preferred fixing our meals at "home" and enjoying the Jungle House.
Danny makes documentaries and shared several with us. After viewing the one on turtles we made a point to visit the beach from the documentary.
Pros: The hosts were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They gave us fresh farm eggs, and the best banana bread I've ever had. The wildlife (both farm and wild) is awesome, and is a very cool and unique Hawaii experience.
Cons: The farmhouse doesn't have good airflow or AC. It is very humid/rainy in this part of Hawaii, so everything felt wet and sticky. I think this is a great place to stay if you have appropriate expectations, but I wasn't aware it was a farm house when I booked it. The furnishings were all in good repair, but quite dated.
What an amazing place to spend your vacation! The House and the Jungle around it give you an authentic feel for the Big Island's beautiful ambience and nature. The house is very spacious and the 3 very cosy bedrooms, large kitchen and living room are ideal for a family vacation. Danny has been very responsive all the time and made us feel very welcome.
We had a wonderful, relaxing time, listening to the birds! Thanks a lot!
Danny's Jungle House is gorgeous--so comfortable, and surrounded by such amazing bird songs & jungle plants! Pahoa is a lovely town. My whole family stayed, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the house and environs. Be sure to watch one of Danny's fascinating documentaries about Hawaii! Fantastic all around--thank you, Danny.
The Jungle House is amazing. It was clean, fully stocked, very spacious for 4 of us yet had a cozy feel. My favorite part was the outside, screened-in shower that looks out on jungle. Everything else that i looked at in the price range were bare bones old hotels that had very poor reviews. Danny responded to all of my emails & couldn't have made the process any easier.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
