This little screened-in, open-air Hale is nestled in a native Ohia rainforest between Hilo & Pahoa. The Hale is completely off-the-grid, uses solar power (generator backup) and has rain catchment. Private outdoor bathroom and shower. Secure, covered parking available. There is no kitchen and no refrigeration, but there is a camping stove and utensils plus a cooler to store all food - if your items are perishable, bring ice!
Awake with the rooster and doze off to the sound of the ocean and the coquis. We live in a beautiful rural setting on the East side of Big Island, Hawaii, 8 miles from the groovy town of Pahoa. Pahoa is the gateway to seeing the lava flow into the ocean, surf on the east side, strumming an ukulele under a coco tree, soaking in lava heated pools and many more adventures. Welcome to our island and little piece of paradise. We are here to serve you and help you enjoy your stay. E komo mai!
Our small home, "Hale Ohia Melemele", is named after the yellow ohia trees on the property. The blossoms are treasured. We are located in the rain forest on the east side of the Big Island in the Hawaiian Paradise Park; 16 miles south Hilo. We are only 2.7 miles to beautiful and dramatic rocky coastline. During the season, Whales come close to shore here due to our deeper coastal waters. Because we are in the country it is good to have a car unless you are a good hiker Closest food is 4 miles
