is like a pearl among Kehena properties. It sits right on the lava rock ledge where the waves splash on them every moment, you can feel the spray on your own lanai! The famous Black Sand beach is within walking distance but the house is located away from the often crowded parking lot on the quiet street end, so you won't see or hear the traffic, it's just you and the blue Pacific ocean.

Hands down OUR favorite vacation rental on the Big Island!!! Keep in mind we are tourists that like to blend in... Pahoa or South Puna is not Kona with all the shops and resorty atmosphere but a more true Hawaiian experience. If you want a sense of community, I highly recommend going to Uncle Roberts in Kalapana on Wednesday night!!!
This vacation rental was very clean, well appointed and very well suited for two couples or a family of four. You can't beat the view as the waves are right out in front of your place!
The ONLY disappointment was the lack of washer/dryer noted in the rental amenities. There might very well have been one there originally but not when we stayed there.
Other than that, we really hope to return to the big island soon and definitely will be looking at renting this accommodation again.

About the neighbourhood
the house is a few minutes walk to the famous Kehena Black Sand Beach, it sits 50 feet away from the lava cliff of the Pacific Ocean. You may sit on the nice and comfy lanai furniture with your coffee or tea enjoy the sunrise, the change of the weather, or just stare at the blue Pacific with 180 degree view right in front of you, without leaving the house. Be lazy, be relaxed, be rejuvenated, nobody bothers you. If the afternoon ocean breeze is too strong we just built a sun deck on the street side of the house for you to soak the sun, it has brand new stylish and comfortable furniture with great privacy. If you are wondering you will be bothered by the crowds at the parking lot of the famous Black Sand beach since it's within walking distance, no you are not since the street curves w... more
