Puna Rainforest Retreat
A Retreat from the Busy Everyday World

Puna Rainforest Retreat

Aloha!
Come and stay with us!  We are enjoying sunshine and blue skies in our happy hale in paradise. We are open for business and plan to continue to operate our business in the future. There is an active lava flow (June 27 lava flow) heading away from us and to the north-northeast. The County of Hawaii has alternate routes ready to be opened in the event that HWY 130 is closed. We are not in harms way and offer a beautiful, peaceful place to stay. We are now totally off-grid, with solar panels, our own water supply, satellite internet and a swimming pool run by a solar powered pump so come on down and stay with us in the "green" part of Hawaii.

We have four vacation rentals for a one-night stay or longer or for a group retreat. Contact us to reserve the entire property.
We are located three miles outside of Pahoa towards Kalapana (south of the flow). We have free wireless internet for our guests, suitable for checking emails and websites, but not for media. Our cottages offers privacy, quiet and luxurious pillow-top mattresses with 400 thread count cotton sheets and feather pillows. Each cottage has a full bath and cooking facilities. We are relying on solar power now and have installed power-sipping appliances and LED light bubs. We ask our guests to conserve power at night since our batteries can only store limited power.  During the sunlight hours, we enjoy abundant electric power. We are finding ourselves more in synch with the sun rising and setting and with the earth energies.


Our four vacation rental cottages rates rent daily, weekly or monthly rates. We charge a one-time cleaning fee of $40. Hawaii taxes are added onto the total (13.41%). The monthly rate is $1500.00, plus the $40 cleaning fee and tax. We have two suite cottages (Yellow Hibiscus and Lavender Orchid) that have two rooms, kitchenettes, and a full bath. We have two studio cottages (Green Bamboo and Casa Azul) that have one large room and come with kitchens and full baths.


Our cottages have kitchen counters with granite countertops, luxury pillowtop beds with 400 thread count cotton sheets, and a tropical decor will make your stay very enjoyable. The cottages all have a drip coffee pot, blender, toaster, pots and pans, dishes and basic kitchen necessities. The stars at night are truly amazing, and the sunrise over the ocean will certainly delight you. You will be serenaded at night by frogs and by birds during the day.


We are centrally located in Puna near Pahoa Village (3 miles), Lava Tree State Park (4 miles), Ahalanui Beach Park (8 miles), Pohoiki Bay Park, Issac Hale Beach Park, Kalapana and the new black sand beach. Visit Uncle Robert's farmers' market on Wednesday nights, Makuu Farmers' Market on Sundays, and Hilo Farmers' Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Only 30 miles to Hilo, 40 miles to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and 50 miles to Mauna Kea Observatory.


Our policies: One half of your total amount is due in order to reserve a cottage for your stay. The balance is due 30 days prior to your arrival. We offer a full refund if you cancel up to 30 days prior to your arrival. Because of the difficulty in renting our cottages at the last minute, we cannot offer refunds if you cancel within 30 days of your arrival.
