Why You’ll Love It
❤Ocean view from bedroom and lanai - not all condos in our community have an ocean view
❤Rural Hawaii location an ideal for those seeking adventure away from crowds
❤Updated interior featuring new textiles, lighting upgrades, quartz counters and tile kitchen back-splash
❤Thoughtful plan design in cozy and comfortable ground floor space.
❤Experienced, dedicated, long-term Superhost owners who care - we do not use a third party for rental management

❤Value! As of May 2022, the average hotel room (non-ocean view) on the big Island is almost $420/ night. The cost of an ocean view hotel room on the Big Island is even more! Our nightly price includes all taxes (over 17% of the total you see). Our cleaning fee is one of the lowest in our complex and our space is super clean. We hope you'll agree that our ocean-view condo is a great value.
❤Peace of Mind: Our Unit is permitted by the County of Hawaii. You'll see our permit in the photos. This permit is required for all legal Short Term Vacation Rentals.

Where you’ll be

Pahala, Hawaii, United States

Two small towns are within 10 minutes in each direction. Naalehu has several restaurants (one of our favorites is Hana Hou) and the famous Punaluu Bakery (a must stop!), a hardware store, Shaka's bar (southernmost bar in the USA), post office and twice-weekly farmer's market. Pahala has a small grocery store - the Superette and a Long's drugstore. There's a hospital in Pahala and both locations have gas stations and a few other local businesses to explore.

The big agricultural attractions in the area are coffee and macadamia nuts; you'll see the farm lands all around. There are some local farms who offer tours and several coffee growers who offer tastings and direct from grower sales.

South Point (Ka Lae) and the Green Sand Beach (it really is green!) are located within about a half hour drive. Every visitor to Hawaii Island will want to see the world's most active volcano - Kilauea - in Volcano National Park. The condo is located 30 minutes from the park entrance and is the only location so close to the park that offers our resort setting and guest amenities. Your park admission is good for 7 days.

There is no city here. It's why we love it. We were so surprised to find the slice of real Hawaii that still exists. There is not a lot here - unless one counts peace, quiet, dark sky-filled nights, friendly people and their history as "things". Then, in that case, Ka'u is overflowing with Hawaii's real bounty.

We are Christen and Tom Mizikar, owners of Beechwood Cottage in the historic Ligonier Valley of Pennsylvania and Beachwood Punaluu in beautiful Hawaii.

We have been providing vacation rental stays since before "Airbnb" was a verb! In our many years of hosting vacation guests, we've learned how to help you connect, relax, enjoy and experience two different, unique and special places.

Our cottage has an authenticity, style and setting that makes it special - from the 18th century chairs at the table to the giant stone fireplace to painstakingly hand-painted floors and hand-made draperies...we welcome you to respite under the shade of tall oak, hemlock, ash and poplar trees.

Our condo is in just as unique location along the last undeveloped coast in all of Hawaii. We love to share the star filled skies, black sand beach and tall palm trees blowing in the tradewinds. Sit on the lanai and listen for the sound of the waves crashing into black lava outcroppings...look as far as one may see and fill your eyes with nature's beauty at Punalu'u, Ninole Cove or all along the Ka'u coast.

When we travel, we have high expectations for both destination and accommodation. We wouldn't have you stay in anything less than perfect for us - and we hope you'll find either (or both!) to be just what you are looking for in a short term lodging experience.
