Property Details

Enjoy a deeply relaxing getaway in the new, ultra-cozy, luxury home, built above the black sand beach coast. Escape to a primordial spot of the world where new land emerges from earth's core and nature rules.

You'll feel well-cared for and cozy in this new two-bedroom home. High-end design and luxury finishes bring art, comfort and beauty indoors; wrapping you in a jewel box of tranquility. The large open deck offers plenty of outdoor living space. The black sand beach of Kahena is a ten-minute walk. The area is a perfect retreat from city life and technology, as it combines the lush green of forests and gardens with the rugged formations of lava flows and natural hot pools. The dominance and power of mother nature on display reminds you of your connection to the natural world.
Quiet, remote and tranquil, but full of places to explore and find inspiration. The nearby town of Pahoa has a world-class farmers market and unique locally owned boutique shops. This is a part of Hawaii that is not at all overrun by tourists. You’ll easily fall into the flow of the slow-paced, gracious nature of the area and feel the welcome hospitality and aloha that we all treasure.
Pohohiki is eight miles away and offers natural lava heated hot ponds and a stunning beach. Walk for miles along a lava shelf with tide pools and new plants popping out through lava rock that not long ago, flowed in molten form.

The home is newly renovated in 2021 and offers open spaces, fresh breezes, and an ideal mix of indoor and outdoor living. Both bedrooms have king beds featuring Keetsa brand high-end firm mattresses and crisp percale cotton bedding. All the modern luxuries are here, and we've stocked the home with everything you might need.
Fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves in the background with cool evening breezes of fresh air. The sun rises each morning filling the home with sun. Shower each morning in soft, filtered rainwater, from our catchment system, and have your Kona coffee on the outdoor deck as you try to distinguish the dozens of different bird calls all around.
The home is owned and designed by a local interior designer with a special skill for designing spaces that create a sense of comfort and balance. Open spaces and a thoughtful floor plan create ease, while luxury finishes and artful touches inspire moments of gratitude for the beauty surrounding you.

The caretaker's cottage is occupied by master gardener and long-time resident JRo. He's on-call if needed and ensures you are oriented, happy and well-cared for, all while offering you total privacy.

This is old school, slow down and relax Hawaii.
The home is part of a small cluster of roughly 35 homes along the coast in a small grid of four roads. This small enclave is then surrounded by three large forest reserves, three state parks, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and virgin open spaces so tranquil that one of the largest dwellings in the area is the nearby Buddhist Monastery.
This is a very lush and secluded area. You will here coqui frogs sing through most of the night. There are no street lights, so flashlights and headlamps can be helpful.
We are minutes from the active lava flow at Kalapana and Hot Ponds of Ahalanui Park. Enjoy the nearby Kapoho Tide Pools and admire the beautiful formations at the Lava Tree State Park.
We are close to the Kalani Retreat Center, Volcanoes National Park, Kaimu Beach, Isaac Hale Beach, Uncle Robert's Kava Bar, and the oceanside McKenzie State Park.
Kehena Black Sand Beach is a ten minute walk. This clothing-optional beach is know for dolphins that come to play with humans.
We are 10 miles from the spectacular surfing beach at Pohoiki, a 20-minute drive from popular restaurants like Paolo's, Ning's and Kaleo's, and 90 minutes by car from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The bustling town of Hilo, 32 miles north, is home to a multitude of unique shops, restaurants, and entertaining hangouts.
We are nine miles from fabulous neo-hippy town of Pahoa with its new, large market. Every Wednesday a fabulous evening farmers market with crafts and food.

Hilo airport 30 miles
Kona airport 100 miles

Tropical Paradise: We had an amazing stay at this gorgeous home. It is beautifully designed, new, modern, clean, cozy, and fully stocked. It has a well-appointed kitchen and a gorgeous covered wrap-around deck with multiple seating areas. We felt at home right away!
This home was perfect for our family of four! It is surrounded by an incredibly well-maintained and lush tropical garden. It’s a short walk to an exotic black sand beach.
Jro, the host, was fabulous, super helpful, very responsive to our questions, and provided us with local tips, expertise, and recommendations.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

The host ( JRo) is a really nice guy and super friendly. This is a hidden gem by the ocean. No doubt, one of the best houses I ever had lived in. Modern appliances, professionally designed, a beautiful garden with multiple fruit trees. it feels like a 5 star resort. Highly recommended!

This fabulously decorated house had unexpected touches. We streamed music on the Alexa, enjoyed looking at the garden with our fresh ground coffee during breakfast, and had wonderful suggestions of things to do from the caretaker, JRO. Wyatt and JRO were very accommodating regarding our late arrival. We felt at home. Thank you for your hospitality (and cookie recipe).

The place was even more beautiful than the pictures, in a serene location, with attention to every detail. And the caretaker was a gem — welcoming a full of helpful information! We’d definitely come back!

"Brand New and Perfect"

by Jerry Walker


Just the two of us stayed here in August. The just finished building and had thought of everything. The host, Jro lives nearby and was a wonderful resource. We did almost nothing and loved the week. We felt restored and connected. We both slept great and ate well and enjoyed quiet and peace. I want to return once a year to re-connect and to feel overwhelmed with gratitude for the amazing world we live in.
