About this listing
Cabin/ antique Bali Hut in beautiful Hawaii on one half acre with ocean views on the Big island of Hawaii on the Puna coast, five minutes walking distance to the black sand beach where the dolphins swim and spin, whale watch in the winter months and play in the surf. My rental is just twenty minutes from Pahoa town where you will find many resturants and grocery and health food stores. This beautiful coastline is one of the most picturesque and oldest parts of Hawaii, twenty minutes to snorkeling and warm pools. This coastline road is perfect for a long bicycle ride to explore this beautiful paradise's hidden treasures. The retreat center Kalani Oceanside retreat is just five minutes from my home, offering yoga classes,a daily schedule of various classes plus a gift shop and resturant with three meals per day. This hut was hand carved in East Timor, Indonesia, sixty years ago and is free standing, open aired, screened with privacy mesh shades. The Bali house is quiet and peaceful, you will sleep to the sound of ocean surf and swaying palm trees. The bathroom and outdoor hot shower are separate from the house and very private, surrounded by trees and plants, their is a privacy fence on the border. The shower is not visible to my home or neighbors. No cooking facilities are available. Please note this is a non-smoking home and grounds (no exceptions please) in a very quiet neighborhood. Wi Fi is available upon request. I will be happy to tell you of all the great things to do here on our special and beautiful island. Aloha and mahalo. I would like to mention that as of the past week, the crater up at Volcano national park is brimming to the top with lava, tourist are coming from all over the world to view this spectacular sight. I know you will want to include this trip in your stay.
The guests will have access to our beautiful coastal road, state parks, jungle walks, hot ponds that are heated by underground lava vents. Tide pools that are great for snorkeling, a black sand beach that is accessible for good walkers and good swimmers. My guests do not have to even leave the area, their are plenty of adventures to be found on this beautiful road.
Interaction with Guests
I am very social with my guests if they wish any information or guidance on their trip. I am always available to them when they need assistance or need anything to make them more comfortable.
My neighborhood is peaceful and very quiet, lots of beautiful plants to see on a neighborhood walk. My backyard is beautiful for plants and star gazing. My neighborhood is also very safe, I do have an office if you wish to lock up any valuables. Parking is available in my driveway, safe and secure.
I strongly urge my guests to rent a car, their is a public bus but it only runs twice a day and does not make it easy to view the sites here. Please remember my Bali hut is less than one hour from Hilo Airport and three hours from the Kona airport.
Other Things to Note
The Bali hut is in total commune with nature, you can see the plants surrounding the hut, hear the ocean, watch the birds fly by, the hut is screened and has privacy mesh shades and with the trees and plants, gives you total privacy. This is the same for the outdoor shower. You will also see our beautiful dancing geko's on the ceiling that are completely harmless, my guests love them and I do also.

Please note this rental and my home are completely solar, the use of hair dryers or anything with a heating element is not allowed. No camp stoves or any other flamable device are allowed inside the Bali house. Mahalo.
We had such a great time in the Cabin! We had so much space in it and the experience to live in balance with the nature was awesome! Our host was very helpful and we will come back again!:-)
The hut and surrounding garden is really a stunning tropical paradise and a true island escape away from the touristy spots of Big Island, yet close to great black beaches, local food and lot of things to do. Also only about 1.5 hours to the Volcano National Park. Although Louisa wasn't there, she had a wonderful friend taking care of us and making us feel very welcome and at home from the first moment! Many thanks for the tips, the nice chats and a fantastic time in paradise! We highly recommend to stay there and would love to come back! It's a pure back-to-nature-experience not to miss!
Louisa was away during our stay but we were warmly greeted and made to feel welcome by her caretaker. The hut is gorgeous and the grounds are lush. This really is a perfect tropical vacation stay! We loved the outdoor shower. There are some mosquitos but there is a mosquito net over the bed which also adds to the romantic feel of the hut. On a wednesday night, nearby Uncle Roberts Awa Bar and night market is a must! The nearby coast and lava fields are stunning. Pahoa town is 20 minutes away with a great health food store for supplies. We would definitely return to stay in the Bali Hut!
Louisa's place was beyond my expectations! Her property is lush and the hut was clean and comfortable with a beautifully carved wood floor. The fact the she runs the entire place on solar and collects rainwater is fantastic! Louisa was lovely and I enjoyed very much hanging out with her. I would have stayed easy a whole month if I could.
We loved the Bali Hut and the host Louisa is amazing! We would love to come back because this area of the island is very relaxing with great snorkeling nearby and very few crowds.
Cute hut with great location. Plenty of activities close to area. Louisa was very helpful and kind.
What a beautiful place! I had a beautiful time here thanks to Louisa sharing this treasure. What luxury!
