The Puna Rainforest Estate is 20-acres surrounded by rainforest and includes the main house, swimming pool and 4 cottages. The estate has sweeping meadow and blue ocean views, wireless internet, avocado, banana, citrus orchard and abundant flowers... this place is a slice of heaven! The property is behind an automatic locked gate leading to a long private driveway. The estate is a fantastic place to host events because while the main house has the capacity to host group meals guests can also have privacy at their own places and make some of their own meals.
The main house has an open floor plan with very high ceilings and 4 bedrooms. The kitchen, living room, lanais and screened room are oversized to accommodate up to 30 people for events. There are two master bedrooms upstairs each with access to the upper lanai offering a view of the pool, meadow and ocean. There is a princess bathroom with separate shower and claw foot tub with skylight. The spiral staircase leads downstairs to the main floor with two more bedrooms, one with a twin and the other with either two twins or a king.
The Four Cottages: (2 studios and 2 two bedroom cottages)
Blue Ginger and Green Bamboo each have a full kitchen with all the amenities, a full bathroom and a cozy queen size bed and a Futon. Both studios have lanais overlooking the meadow and ocean.
2 Room Cottages
Lavender Orchid has a kitchenette with all the amenities, a full bathroom, a king size bed in the master bedroom and two twins in the second bedroom.
Yellow Hibiscus is the same but has a queen in master bedroom. Both cottages have lanais overlooking the meadow and ocean.
The estate is perfect for weddings, reunions, retreats and workshops where privacy and togetherness have the perfect balance. The retreat is peaceful, quiet and has no light pollution at night for unbelievable skies. Our nighttime temperatures are perfect for restful sleep. Close to all the attractions in Puna.

Estate guests have have the support of staff that live next door and have been managing the property for years. We are available throughout your stay if issues arise.

We live in a very safe neighborhood and have a property gate. There is little reason to leave a 10-mile radius but Hilo is only 24 miles away, Volcanoes National Park 40 miles and the Mauna Kea Observatory, where you can view through telescopes, is 50 miles. Kona is 100 miles over the new saddle road making the connection to the other side in about 2 hours. Puna Rainforest Estate is special because you can stay in a private place in a natural setting away from the busy neighborhoods and resorts but are still close enough to enjoy the attractions.
We are centrally located with many attractions within a short distance. Neighboring properties include La’akea Permaculture Farm and rainforest. Natural steam vents are close by and funky Pahoa town is 4 miles away offering fantastic organic food and supplies leaving little reason to leave Puna. The Ahalanui Beach Park and Pohiki Bay are 8 miles away and offer paddleboarding, surfing, body boarding, swimming and hot springs. Kalapana and the new Kaimu Black Sand Beach are about 7 miles away near Uncle Robert’s kava bar and Sunday farmers market. A recent addition to Kalapana is the UFO landing pad and star visitor sanctuary created by the Reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii. The best snorkeling on the island is about 10 miles away at Wai’opea tidepools near Green Lake and the heated ocean pools at Champagne Ponds. Also near Kapoho is the Ancient Mango Grove leading to intertidal swimming pools.
The 20 acre retreat is within the Puna Forest Reserve and our grounds are surrounded by rainforest that is part of the retreat. Hawaiian Natives own the non-private property within the reserve to protect the Native Ohia forest that is sacred to them. The reserve was acquired by the Trust for Public Lands and transferred to the Office of Hawaiian Affairs. The reserve is endangered species habitat for the Endangered Hawaiian Owl, Hawk, and Bat. While these species are otherwise very rare they are often seen at the retreat.
The Ohia Forest has giant ferns, diverse species of orchids, epiphytic plants, strawberry guava, passion fruit, geckos, praying mantis and songbirds. The rainforest is very dense and so we ask guests to remain on the grounds for their safety unless we discuss the specific hazards. The retreat property surrounding the grounds feature many skylights into lava tubes as well as lava trees and caves. The Puna Rainforest is invigorating to see, taste, hear and feel.
Maximum occupancy is 22 people. Smoking is okay outside.

I'm from Haines, Alaska with my partner, Elijah and two daughters where we are surrounded by glaciers, rivers, salmon and sunshine. We do environmental research, cleanups and restoration with our company, Chilkat Environmental. I teach dance and Elijah is all about mountain biking. We are excited about sustainable living and growing food in Hawaii.
