Come one, come all to the Big Island. You are welcome here to rest and relax in this private suite attached to my dream house. Located on the slopes of Mauna Loa; halfway between Kona and Volcano National Park, Aloha House is the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of your life, located at the 80 mile marker. A great place to land while exploring the real natural beauty of the Big Island.
Your room is a newly renovated studio with a private entrance and full bath. There is a kitchenette with everything but a stove. There is a grill on your private lanai for cooking. Free wireless is available, the TV is for movies only (a selection is available).
You are welcome to come on my lanai when I'm not home, just clean up after yourselves. Enjoy the gifts I have been given! That's Aloha!
If I'm home I'd love to meet and chat. I have lived on the Big Island for 35+ years and enjoy sharing tips and secrets of the Big Island with visitors. No shame to come knock on the front door if you have questions. That's Aloha too!
Aloha house is located in the district of Ka'u. It is the southern most district of the United States. Ka'u is the least developed area of the Hawaiian Islands. It is as close to the old Hawaii as you can get. Please explore our sites, there are giant lava tubes at Kula Kai Caverns (3miles away), South Point(10 miles); great coffee place and orchid farm at Kalae Coffee on South Point road and of course the famous Green Sands Beach. Also, the towns' of Na'alehu(15 miles) and Pahala (27 miles). Na'alehu has the infamous "Punalu'u Bakery" and special eateries(open market every Wednesday morning) and Pahala has the Ka'u Coffee Mill which has public tours and the best Ka'u coffee around. Please feel free to ask me about anything you want to do...Enjoy!Please realize that this is Oceanview..not Oceanfront! We do not have access to a beach close to the house. Punalu'u is located at the 56 mile marker past Na'alehu; a black sand beach that usually has Honu (turtles) sleeping in the sun or nibbling the seaweed on the rocks. Or Ho'okena is north at the 102 mile marker. It is a beautiful swimming and snorkeling beach. We are approx. 40 miles from Volcano National Park and an easy drive if you want to catch the lava lake view at night!
Also, our water supply is on a catchment system but I have an extensive filtration system so the tap water is safe. There is also a "Britta" in the fridge for cold water. Please do conserve water as much as possible though (short showers are appreciated). We never know when it's going to rain and when it's NOT! :)
- No shoes in the house please.
I am a single Mom who recently bought her dream home in Hawaii where I have lived for 35+ years. I am a teacher and an active member of our local community theater. Aloha Theater in Kainaliu. I have lived in Oceanview for just over a year and love it. I can't live without coffee, chocolate and macnuts. I love movies and theater. Hiking, swimming/snorkeling, reading and gardening.
I have traveled all over the world and done some Airbnb in California and Oregon. I love to meet new people, learn about their dreams and travel experiences. I want to go to Thailand and Myanmar in the next couple of years. I would also like to do a train trip through Europe, bike trip in Ireland and visit the Mediterranean.
