House Rules

Check in time 4pm-7pm.
Arriving during daylight is much easier!
We are an off grid homestead and so are unable to use high power items such as a hair dryer.
Our water is harvested from the rain and stored in cisterns and so it is important to only drink the filtered water we provide.
Please make sure to clean up after yourself in all shared spaces.
Please do not store or keep any food in your room. There is plenty of safe food storage in the kitchen in order to keep critters out of bedroom spaces. Thank you!

My family had a great stay at the Sunrise room. Though Julia was out of town (her caretaker greeted us when we arrived), she reached out ahead of our visit with very clear directions - we were able to find the location even though we arrived after dark. The space was clean and Julia left water bottles and fresh towels for us to use. The Sunrise room is definitely off the grid - no cell service - but we liked the proximity to nature and falling asleep to the sounds of frogs. We had access to wifi, and Julia's super-friendly dog greeted us every time we returned. We noticed some mosquitos started coming out in the evenings (we visited mid-July) and suggest bringing bug spray for when you leave the cabin area. The Sunrise room was in a good location to see the current lava flows and visit nearby beaches and we would definitely return for our next visit to the Big Island!

The sunrise room is basically a raised cottage with screening across the window openings. The furniture is old and tired and should be replaced. The half bath is down the stairs shown in the photo, and flashlights are furnished. This is an off the grid experience if you are ready for it. It wasn't bad, just that you need to know what to expect - an eco cottage off the grid in a rain forest with chirping frogs at night. The kitchen building is also open air and larger, and we had it to ourselves on our stay. WiFi was excellent and the outdoor shower was nice. Julia wasn't there and Jean furnished us some freshly ground coffee, which we appreciated in the morning. Bring food for your needs as Pahoa is a good 15 minute drive away.

Julia and Harry have created a lovely, peaceful spot in the jungle. If you want to get way off the beaten path, this is the spot for you. I loved watching the lizards hunt for bugs and the red-headed bird scavenge for crumbs. And then there's Soji, the dog, who loves belly rubs. This is a great place to get untethered from your cell phone as there is no service. (There is service a short drive away, however.) I took a yoga class at Kalani and would recommend a visit to Kalani for a class or to use the pool--there are beautiful grounds and a great vibe.

I had so much fun staying in this cabin in the middle of the rainforest. It was a unique experience that brought me peace.

Awesome place to stay way off the beaten path. It was so peaceful to go to sleep and awaken to the sound of frogs, crickets, and birds right outside the room. The room was neat, clean, and cozy. I also enjoyed checking out their off the grid systems for power and water. Way cool! Julia was a great host too!

Our host, Julia was very attentive to helping us make our stay a good one. The environment was quiet and calm (the best part) and we loved staying in the jungle there. We would definitely recommend it!

Julia was friendly and welcoming. This is a great place for adventurous types who want to experience the back woods of Hawaii in a rustic but comfortable place. Wonderful to hear the sounds of the jungle and the sun coming right into your screened in window. Basic, simple, sweet.
