The Space

A cozy one bedroom, one bath cottage with an open floor plan kitchen/dining/living room is your home base for exploring the Kalapana Coast on the Big Island. The manager and local artist, Heather Wilkinson, lives next door in a two-story house in Seaview Kalapana Estates with her wily cat Mr. Undertoes. 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. Parking is provided just outside your front door. Wireless internet is complimentary and coin operated washer and dryer are located outside your back door under a spacious covered patio common area. But you may prefer to dry your clothes on your breezy patio clothesline. The atmosphere here in Puna is totally laid back, friendly, and in tune with Nature.
A local Saturday market with the island's freshest produce is within walking distance. Wednesday evenings another local market in Kalapana welcomes the community with dinner sold by a couple dozen food vendors and live Hawaiian music. Kahena Black Sand Beach is only a three minute drive from the Ohana and many great attractions including flowing lava, warm ponds , snorkeling, surfing, and steam bathing are within easy driving distance down the Red Dirt Road, which is actually paved now. Heather and Mr. Undertoes invite you to experience a unique lifestyle in Seaview Kalapana Estates.

  • Heather's Ohana (email hidden) to base my explorations of Hilo and Volcano from. The cabin was spotless and well equipped. A little further out than I had realized, but I loved the scenic drives to and from Heather's place. Recommended.

  • This is just the sweetest space! Very spacious, clean and comfortable. Very well equipped kitchen. Nicely decorated, you can just feel the Aloha. Washer and dryer were just out the back door as was a clothesline. So handy for an extended trip. I recommend totally!

  • I lived in Heather's Ohana for an extended stay not too long ago. The space is large, well equipped and sits at what i feel is the best site to call home as you explore the sights and community. The host Heather will take care of you well and offers two rental units that are top notch.

Mural Artist
I have lived on the Big Island for 7 years now, and have occupied this property in Seaview for three 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.
