My downstairs rooms are just right for 2 -4 people. We are 15 minutes away from the warm pond, snorkeling, farmers markets, beautiful hikes and good restaurants, outside of Pahoa Village near Lava Tree Park. The apartment has a private bathroom, queen sized bed, fold out double futon, kitchenette, washer and dryer. I live upstairs with my two cats. I am open to visitors with pets on a case-by-case basis.
There is a large bedroom with a queen bed and shelf headboard, closet, sofa that converts to a double bed, coffee table, end table, foldaway chairs, and large flat screen TV with satellite. The kitchenette is set up in the laundry room with a sink, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, electric kettle, dishes and various utensils (and you are welcome to use the washer and dryer). The private en suite bathroom has a vanity with sink, shower stall, and toilet. You are also welcome to sit on the patio or enjoy the spacious yard, and cable WiFi works throughout the entire home.
Parking is free, easy, and safe in the big yard. You enter through the main door and the entire downstairs is your private space (I do need to access the laundry room weekly and will do so when you are away to respect your privacy). I live upstairs and am happy to interact with guests as we cross paths, but do ask that they respect my privacy and refrain from going upstairs. The downstairs carport, back patio, and big yard are all yours to enjoy as well.
I have lived on the Big Island for almost 30 years now, and am happy to share my knowledge and experiences with curious guests! I am in and out a lot with work and various hobbies, but always glad to provide local advice.
The house needs to be locked up when no one is home (doors and windows). I will always lock the upstairs when I leave, and you will be provided with keys for access to your space.
There are cats in the house, though I do keep them out of the rental area. However, anyone with very sensitive allergies may want to beware. One cat is elderly and stays upstairs, and one goes in and out and may make friends with you.
- Quiet hours are from 10pm to 6am.
- No shoes in the house, except for house slippers.
I enjoy travel, making new friends and talking with people about this incredible island. I look forward to combining these interests by inviting folks to come stay with me through Airbnb. I am happy to help you get to know this amazing part of the Hawaiian islands while you stay with me near an active lava flow, hot ponds, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, hiking and great places to eat.
I live in a two story house with my two cats. I am mainly upstairs. The Airbnb is downstairs and includes a lovely bedroom, bathroom, laundry and small kitchenette. You will be very comfortable in your own private area. It is perfect for two people, but there is room for 4 with a queen sized bed and a double bed sized fold out futon on the floor.
