My comfortable cottage is close to the Kalapana lava flow on a lush green lot. Ideal for couples, it can accommodate 2 more on the full size sofa bed with memory foam mattress. This is an off-grid home but you'd hardly notice, with solar electric power, WiFi & propane for gas cooking & water heating. The kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator & freezer, a full oven with broiler & 4-burner cooktop, pots, pans & utensils, coffemaker, partially stocked.
This is the best deal in this area! I built this fully permitted, comfortable, off-grid cottage located on a lush green lot at the very edge of the 1991 lava flow. This is the most comfortable, convenient vacation rental in the area, now with WiFi! There's bicycle rentals just a five minute walk away and you have the security of leaving your car right there at the house in the residential area to which you'll have exclusive access as a guest. It's on a private residential road just off the main road to the lava viewing area and is fenced & gated for privacy & security, and far enough off the main road that nobody will be walking or driving right by the house. There's a solar light at the gate and a timed motion detector at the front of the house to welcome you at night. There's a queen sized bed with high thread-count cotton sheets, and a full-size sofabed with a comfortable
memory foam mattress for 2 additional guests. The windows all around allow the cool tropical breeze to flow through, in addition to an electric fan if the natural breeze slows down! Wake up to a swift Hawaiian sunrise from the big window next to the bed. There is a comfortable seating area inside with a sofabed & chair, coffee table & end table with some local interesting publications & children's books. There is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to create a meal, including baking a birthday cake! There's even extra containers for leftovers! There is a full bathroom and plenty of water for taking a hot shower or a relaxing bath after a day of hiking or biking to see the lava. There are some indoor games provided, and a selection of music CD's & over 300 DVD movies including kids movies. Hook your laptop up to the TV. You'll have use of a small Smokey Joe barbeque with charcoal provided to do some grilling, and a big picnic table on the spacious lanai & another picnic table under the mango tree in the yard as well as a bistro table provide room to relax & enjoy your meal al fresco. There are two reclining deck chairs which are great for sunbathing during the day or star gazing at night where the Milky Way spans the sky on the dark nights! Wander around the yard to see & smell exotic flowers like plumeria, hibiscus & tiare, and check for fruit on the pineapple in front and on the mango, Suriname cherry & breadfruit trees. Enjoy watching & hearing native birds foraging in the grass especially in the early morning while sipping your coffee as the sun comes up and in late afternoon with your favorite adult beverage watching a spectacular sunset! You'll have the opportunity to have a head start early in the morning or to go out after dark to see the glow of surface lava flows from the top of the pali coming down or see the lava at the ocean entry, and the house will be waiting for you!

I will be happy to meet you to provide keys and show you around. I was born and raised a half a mile from here and can tell you history of the area that not many know of now. I live about 20 minutes away.
