The space


I live in on the east side of the Big Island of Hawaii, in an area called Orchidland and yes there are wild orchids that grow everywhere - its lush and tropical. In between the towns of Keaau and Pahoa, this home is conveniently located to Volcano, Hilo, beach areas and other unique tourist destinations in East Hawaii and has all the modern ammenities you will need for a comfortable stay.

I have a spacious three bedroom contemporary tropical home, quiet and very comfortable. Two bedrooms are available to use in the home along with a shared bathroom. One room has queen size bed and another with an antique double bed with shared bath available.

Wireless internet is available, good cell phone coverage along with cable tv.

We are located 22 miles from Volcano National Park, 12 miles from the lava viewing area in Kalapana, and 11 miles from Hilo town. Closeby are Pahoa and Keaau town for shopping, dining, grocery and other convenience needs. Public transport is available but not frequent.

We enjoy interacting with guests and will do our best to make your trip to the Big Island a memorable event and suggest many places to discover on the East side.

There is alot of beautiful areas and natural wonders to see in our unspoiled area. For activity buffs there's also hiking, snorkeling, surfing, coral reef diving, whale watching, ziplines and helicopter tours on the Big Island.

Please note that we don't charge a “Security Deposit” or “Cleaning Fees” when figuring out your total cost.

Nearby attractions to Orchidland include HIlo town, Banyan drive and Coconut Island, Rainbow falls, Hilo farmers market, Panaewa zoo, Reed, Honolii beach and other local area beaches. Along the Puna coastline is Kehena Beach, the popular black sand clothing-optional beach where Spinner Dolphins often come to play, the Kapoho Tide Pools as well as other warm tidal pools where tropical fish swim at your feet, Lava Tree State Park, lava viewing. The Maku'u Farmer's Market which attracts 15,000 visitors every Sunday is just 4 miles from here.

A short drive is Volcano Village and Volcano National Park with Kilauea, the world's most active volcano, located about 22 miles away. Kilauea is currently experiencing some of the most active lava flows in recent history. Tour the thousands-of-years-old lava tubes which stretch for miles and gaze in awe at active lava flows.

Noel's house was in a really good location. The whole house and bedroom we stayed in was really gorgeous and had a lot of character. Noel was a great host, he was extremely knowledgable about the island and recommended some great places that we would never have even known to go to. He was always friendly, and chatted a lot with me and my 6 year old daughter who I travelled with. We visited during the Merrie Monarch Festival and we spent one morning together at Coconut Island, Hilo Farmers Market and watching the parade. Thanks for having us!

Noel was a wonderful host. His house is very beautiful. The bedroom and the bathroom we used was very clean. The location is great if you want to visit volcano. Its about the same distance as Hilo and on top of that you are close to Kapoho tidal pools which was a great recommendation from Noel.

Response from Noel:
Thanks Nidhi - the property is perfectly located so you can check out Volcano National Park, a short drive to downtown Hilo and the beaches or even down the Red road loop, warm ponds and the gorgeous tidal pools of Kapoho

Noel was a great host! He contacted me before my arrival to make sure he is home for my check in! He told me places to visit and we had good conversations. His house is beautiful and the room was great too! A bit dusty I have to admit, but I can highly recommend staying here!

Noel was an excellent host and very willing to share some of the ins and outs of The Big Island as well as some of the cool things in the area around Hilo. His house is very comfortable and in a peaceful and quiet setting.

May 2013 - Noel kindly accommodated us late in the day. His house is very nice, beautiful hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings and a fully-equipped top of the line kitchen. Comfy bed and great air from window and ceiling fan. VERY clean bathroom with great water pressure. Good location right off the main road. He is very knowledgeable about the island and the culture. We were so happy with this choice!

Good place close to Hilo, Volcano, and lava hiking. Just close the window to not hear the frogs which are on all the east coast. It changes from the roosters.
