The manager and local artist, Heather Wilkinson, lives next door in a two-story house in Seaview Kalapana Estates with her wily cat Kitty Purry and dog Lupita. Heather will be your source for how to get the most out of your stay on the Puna (east side) of the island.
Your unit accommodates up to two persons with a full size bed in the bedroom and a single size futon in the living room. The kitchen is equipped with dishware, pots and pans, etc. and has a microwave oven, coffee maker, gas stove and refrigerator.

Heather's ohana unit was great. Perfect for one or two people, very clean, had everything I needed for cooking simple food. The friendly kitty was an added bonus.

We stayed for 7 days at Heather's place which was cosy, very clean and had everything we needed. It's a good place to relax and enjoy the nature :-)

Heather greeted me with a friendly 'hello' when I arrived. Her cat and dog are quite charming. I stayed in the small (front) cottage. Very good for one person or a close couple. The place was spotlessly clean, the linens comfortable and the water OK (which is a challenge for the Puna coast).

Heather was a nice host! Since she had friends visiting, she upgraded our Ohana In Seaview to the Coconut Lanai, which is larger and even nicer! Heather has a print-out guide for guests, which really helped us to explore the place. we both love the Thai place that Heather recommended. Overall, it is really a nice experience staying in Heather's place.

I love the big island, and I have a special place in my heart for the Kalapana/Pahoa region. I am familiar with the area and knew what I wanted: a quiet space to read, cook and go running. Heather's Ohana was perfect for me. Quiet, clean, outfitted with all the amenities (full kitchen, washing machine/dryer) close to Kalani a nice walk, where I took yoga every day. And a really cute kitty! Heather was out of town for my week long stay, but I got to meet her on my last day. She was always reachable and friendly. The photos don't fully give a sense of how nice the place is: and Heather has added some fun artwork. Thanks Heather!

I have lived on the Big Island for nearly 10 years now, and have occupied this property in Seaview for five years. I work as a mural artist and create art work that adorns much of my neighbors yards and homes. I enjoy exploring the Big Island, traveling, landscaping, dancing, swimming with dolphins and making art.
