About this home

Ask about our sister property the Octopus house in Kalapana (look up property number 1473223). we can do a package deal so you can explore BOTH sides of the island! this is the big island and this package will cut down on your driving!


*Our phone number is listed in here. Please make sure we connect just before you get here to get the gate code and key. Plus we will Give you the number to our neighbor Nicole for any onsite support! :)

Tropical 2 acre farm like setting, minus the animals except maybe for some wild chickens running around. Coffee plants, bananas, loquats, pineapples, liliquoi, 5 kinds of citrus, ground cherries, dragon fruit, and more... (fruit is not available year round so please dont be upset if things are not ripe) Usually we pick whats ripe and place it in the house for guests. Also note that there are many Jackson Chameleons running around if you can spot them. Please be careful if you pick them up and place them right back where you found them. Normally there are 4 to 5 running around.



Things near by:

1)Punalu u beach- 39 minute drive south east- Black sand beach, turtle spotting and okay snorkeling

2)Papakōlea Green Sand Beach, Naalehu, HI 96772 36 minute drive, south and you pass by south point for the adventurous cliff jumpers... I ve not seen a more beautiful area to cliff jump!

3)Ho‘okena Beach Park, 86-4322 Mamalahoa Hwy, Captain Cook, HI 96704- 57 minute drive West to a Grey sand beach and camping area, great for turtles and dolphin spotting

4)Two Step, Captain Cook, HI 96704 46 minute drive, west, for great snorkeling

spot, beautiful coral, fish and sometimes dolphins

5) Captain Cook, Hawaii 53 minutes north west, to coffee, kayaking, snorkeling spots, shopping, restaurants and more

6)Ali i Dr, Kailua-Kona, HI 96740, 1 hour 14 minutes to Alii drive for everything from beaches, shopping, snorkeling, diving, golf resorts, restaurants, luaus, and more

7) North of all that is the airport, fancy resorts beaches and marinas for boat charters for fishing, whale watching, diving... Highly recommend snorkeling or diving with the Manta-rays! You will never forget it.

8)Farmers markets- some are 20 minutes from the house and some are an hour and a bunch in-between... always worth checking out!

9)I'd like to point out there are a ton of other things to do but some should be discovered on their own! In-fact we have come up with a new extensive list of things to do and research on the island.... Ask me to email it to you!



***Weather- due to the elevation of this house at 3200 feet its a little cooler in the mornings ( sleep better at night) and is usually above 70 degrees by 9am. Also it can be cloudy/rainy at the house and sunny and hot by the ocean or vice versa! so be prepared for anything. In fact the weather can change 4 times in a day and you can sit outside and watch a cloud float by! its sunny, drizzly, rainy all at once sometimes its like living in the clouds.



*** use caution when walking around the property since you are on an old lava flow and active volcano. small lava tubes are regularly being found, its one of the things we like about the big island! plus there are occasional grumbles/quakes. If you have concerns you can sign up for text messages from the Hawaiian civil defense... its a great and fairly accurate way to be informed. I signed up last during last Mays eruption and always get notices of road closures, quakes anywhere around the

pacific rim, tsunamis and general alerts.

9.2.Superb.
  • 2.0.Poor

    I was given the incorrect access information and was unable to get into the house, slept in my car. Owner refused to refund my money and the owner and her boyfriend were rude and abusive. Property itself is ok, in a subdivision, no internet, the 100 fruit trees are some dwarf shrubs. Nothing special, but ok probably if you get correct information.

    Wonderful off-grid cabin

    This was everything I was hoping for and more. I booked a last minute solo trip to Hawaii looking for peace and quiet, and this was perfect, better than expected. I really enjoyed my coffee on the lanai listening to nature each morning. Hoping to come back sometime to enjoy even more of what is available.

    Perfect get away

    This little cabin has everything you need. It was cool at nights, and sunny during the day. The landscaping is almost all edible. The drive is far away from many things as advertised, but we did not mind. Thr bed was very comfortable ( for those with bad backs). I would note there is a large chest freezer, but no freezer. So come prepared with Iice and a cooler for outdoor excursions.

    Well kept quirky out of the way location

    The location is out of the way for most of the normal tourist attractions. Being off grid was a great experience and the next time I am in Hawaii I would definitely stay here again. Our stay was during a cold snap and all of the extra blankets around the house were appreciated. Being in a more remote area did pose some challenges but the night skies were amazing. How inconsequential we are compared to the vastness of space is on full display when viewing the stars from the deck.

    A unique mountain cabin

    The cabin is filled with treasures from around the world. Its unusual w orkmanship is intriguing to me, such as doors that open with latches and string thru the walls and open windows. There is a light that looks like it came from an old big ship and a table that looks like it needed a ton of money and men to get here. This place is a treasure chest of ideas and living useful antiques and we thank the owners for letting us be here. The only drawback are the live in critters in the food area and the nasties around the shower that bite. The mosquito punks helped that. We would love to stay again. Douglas and Paula

    Great little hideaway

    My wife and I enjoyed the cabin, it is a great home base to explore the big island. The property is very quiet and relaxing and the view of the stars at night is amazing! We cannot wait to come back

    Better then expected.

    This is the best vacation rental we have ever been to. Very well set up and very private. If you want to get away this is the perfect place to go to.

    Tranquil and beautiful

    My husband and I loved the orchard house. The owner did a fabulous job on making this bungalow tranquil, peaceful and comfortable. We loved having breakfast out on the back deck overlooking the gardens. It is situated up high and surrounded by plants. Lots of privacy and beauty. It is also close to green sands beach and not too far from volcanoe national park.
