UPDATE: THE LAVA IS FLOWING AGAIN! Fall asleep and awake to the exotic sounds of coqui frogs, exotic birds, jungle rain, and geckos in an ancient Hawaiian forest. A jungle observatory that you can live in. Stargaze as never before while listening to the ocean crashing one mile away.

This unique 650 sq. foot 12-sided house was a church, a yoga studio, and a healing center in past lives. It is now a home and has a shaded 6 ft. round skylight in the center of the ceiling and mirrors for yoga and dance. It also has an indoor toilet and sink with an amazing outdoor shower, both with hot and cold running water. You will find very comfortable queen and full sized beds in the house with plenty of living space. (A separate adventure cabin with 1 full sized bed is kept vacant, but can be rented for a small extra charge.) We have just added a kitchen onto the hale called, "The Jungle Cafe". Here there is a propane refrigerator and stove as well a 10ft. counter, double sink, and all the amenities of a kitchen.

The house is very private and located on 3 acres of lush ancient mango trees with three buildings. Internet access is available across the road at, "Hawaiian Retreat" (also your hosts) which is a 5-acre organic garden selling fresh produce. I can get cell/phone Internet service from the bed, kitchen, and porch.

The house is very private and managed by "Hawaiian Retreat", across the road. Steve and Janelle are available to answer any questions you may have. A gardener visits once a month.

The neighborhood is amazing, off the grid, and private! Stroll down the popular non-GMO Papaya Farms Road under old growth bamboo, papaya, banyan trees and more! Fragrant tropical flowers are everywhere along with several species of birds, and butterflies. Stargaze in the front yard like nowhere else on the planet while listening to the waves break one mile away.

There is a great bus system, with a bus stop one mile from the house. The property has plenty of room for parking with a circular driveway. It is 29 miles from Hilo Intl. Airport and cars may be rented from several agencies.
WARM POND (AHALANUI PARK) This place is a real gem and located just a couple of miles away and very easy to get to. I like to go at least twice a week.
ISSAC HALE BEACH PARK (POHOIKI) - This is a great place to visit with a picnic lunch. You can enjoy the waves and watch the surfers. (Located just past warm pond)
GREEN LAKE PRODUCE MARKET - If you are there on a Friday, you can buy some of the local yummy food, just down the road that the area has to offer. Smiley is super nice and you can ask her about any of the products. (You can ask Janelle at Hawaiian Retreat for the super easy directions.)
JOSANNAS ORGANIC PRODUCE/HAWAIIAN RETREAT - Janelle is your hostess and always has fresh produce or veggies available for very reasonable prices. Best part is that it's right across the road and you have a kitchen!

PAHOA - This little town has an amazing collection of restaurants and markets.
MING'S - Thai food at it's best. I love everything they serve, especially if it has calamari as an ingredient. Don't ask for hot curry unless you are prepared. You've been warned!
LUQUINE'S - If you need a fix of Mexican food, you have found the place! Everything is delicious!
BLACK ROCK CAFE - Cheap draft beer and best breakfast in town! There is a
laundromat next door.
LAVA BAR - Second Saturday evening of each month fills the town with live music. The Lava Bar is the place to dance your flip flops off and the pool tables are free!
ISLAND NATURALS - Best store to buy organic groceries for your Jungle Cafe. It's a natural food market and has a fantastic deli right inside the door MALAMA MARKET - The other supermarket in town. I buy my Ahi Poke here. Yum!

UNCLE ROBERT'S - On Wednesday nights, you can find an excellent farmer's market, local products for sale, dancing to live music, and a lot of locals letting their hair down. Don't forget to walk to the beach that is across the street. It's loaded with history and worth the visit!
VOLCANO NATIONAL PARK - A humbling and life changing place to visit. If you love geology, this IS the place for you. Great place to visit day, or night.
MAUNA KEA - Another great place to visit day, or night. Some of the best telescopes in the world are located at this sacred Hawaiian site. I plan to join them for stargazing on my next visit.

THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO SEE ON THIS AMAZING ISLAND. IT HAS 11 OF THE 13 CLIMATES ZONES ON THE PLANET! I keep several books about the island on the book shelf and, "The Ultimate Guide to the Big Island" is one of the best.

Don't forget to take some inexpensive water shoes for the warm ponds, along with your snorkeling gear. Waking shoes that can handle black lava as many places you visit will be a bit rough.
Take your own spices for cooking.
A flashlight is a must if you go outside at night. There is electricity in the house with lights.
This is a wonderful location and there aren't big hotels in the area.
Please call with your ETA. We try to keep check-ins no later than 6:00pm. My hosts need their sleep. Mahalo. We know you are coming from far away so if you have to check in later, we can accommodate you. Just let us know. Janelle can be reached at ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and Steve at ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) for anything you need. This is an adventure cabin. It is for the nature lover who is looking for a unique and comfortable Hawaiian experience. If you need room service, a swimming pool, wall to wall carpeting, street lights, and the company of many tourists; it may not be for you.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a little less than a week. We liked it overall, but were a bit disappointed in some aspects. It is a beautiful little place surrounded by jungle, but there were a couple issues: the outdoor "shower" didn't work at all- only a tiny bit of water came out of the pipe that it was supposed to and the rest went straight to the ground, and lack of privacy was a bit of an issue. The whole house is surrounded by windows with no curtains, which we thought would be fine considering that we would be in the middle of a jungle, but more than once we looked out in the yard to find people picking fruit right next to our windows. Overall it was a nice place for an alternative to camping, but it would have been nice if we were warned about random people walking onto the property. Also, warning: there are feral pigs roaming the property so don't be alarmed if you hear rustling at night. That was a bit freaky until we knew for sure what it was.

Kylie, I apologize for the visitors. They are from the farm across the road and harvest the fruit that isn't eaten by guests for selling. My hosts said you were very quiet and they were surprised they didn't hear from you. I truly wish you would of contacted them in reference to the shower with the numbers I gave you. They were just across the road and didn't want to disturb you. It normally works beautifully. Mahalo, Jenny

Thanks Jenny, for letting us stay at your wonderful off the grid getaway. It was a beautiful house amidst amazing plants and trees. We loved Margaret's company...she was so sweet. Your place added an adventure quotient to our vacation. Best, Jagan and Jayati

We loved staying in a tranquil off grid paradise full of character and charm, mixed in with wild boars, geckos and frogs. Some of the highlights are certainly the screened in kitchen and outdoor shower! We are looking forward to venturing there again and cannot wait to dine at Pele's kitchen and the Thai place in town - don't miss out!

Steve did a great job getting the place ready for us. We enjoyed our 2 nights in the jungle. Being so close to the warm pond was the best- be sure to spend some time there, and do get a fresh coconut from the folks in the parking lot if they're there! Though there are some in the yurt, packing a flashlight would be helpful, as we did not have electricity the second night. Loved the swing and the outdoor shower (BYO soap/shampoo). Thanks again for a nice stay!

Excellent launch point for tide pools, volcanoes, national park, Hilo and jungle adventure. Great living space, must be very comfortable with nature.

Une vraie immersion dans la jungle ! Très bon séjour en famille dans cette cabane ouverte sur la végétation. Nous n'avons vu que Margaret, le chat et quelques sangliers au lever du jour. Notre fille a adoré la balançoire de cocotier ! Reposant et dépaysant.
