Pahoa, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
My Big Island home, near Pahoa Hawaii, is a unique, custom-built round, house located in a clearing at the top of a long approach hill, on ten acres of completely secluded rain forest. It is completely private and in a very relaxed setting. The house is solar powered and equipped with all modern comforts and appliances. It has a spacious 500 sq ft.+ bedroom with a queen sized bed and double bed with adjoining private bath and the same queen sized bed in a smaller second bedroom upstairs with a full bath on the same floor. Both are very private. Upstairs floor features full size futon bed, huge kitchen, living room, with 3 sets of french doors that open onto a huge outdoor living room/ lanai/ dining room for a breakfast lunch or dinner indoors or out as you choose. Lots of room. The open-plan design works for families, or a smal... Read more

We recently spent 11 wonderful nights at the Round House. We will never stay anywhere else on the Big Island. Sharon is amazing, responds promptly to emails and texts, and she wants her guests happy. Her caretaker, Jasmine, clearly loves this house and prepares it...More

Thanks much for the nice review. Only upstairs French doors three sets that open out onto covered 700 square foot deck, are unscreened and are very high, so have almost no need for screens. Very very few bugs there as you noted. Thanks for all...More

About the neighbourhood
Ours is a rural location close to major attractions. The town of Pahoa, 2 miles away, is a charming sleepy, historic 'Sugar Cane Railroad Village' that is still most like 'Old Hawaii,' not touristed as many such places are in the Islands. But nonetheless, Pahoa has arguably the greatest concentration of excellent small restaurants on the Big Island.
Our house is only 15 minutes from a large natural, lava rock, warm thermal pool and several other such small pools for delicious swimming, next to the Pacific Ocean. Ocean swimming and surfing is located only 20 minutes away by car. Also, great coral reef snorkeling. Located only one hour from Volcanoes National Park and not far from the mostly continuous active eruption of lava (which can also be viewed by helicopter or boat...
