We live in a small neighborhood and this 2nd floor apartment, located in Kapoho Vacationland near Pahoa and the Waiopae Tide pools, is the top half of a 2 story house and rental is own apartment with two bedrooms / 1 bath and extra sleeping space for 1 additional person (total 5) on day bed. We do have one queen size air mattress if you need it.(let us know in advance though!) Large space with 600 sf deck - full kitchen.
Pool / Washer and Dryer and wireless DSL At&T cell phones work great, but we do have a land-line for local and US calls.
Snorkel at the Waiopae Tide Pools in Kapoho Vacationland only 600 ft away, or relax and swim in our pool that is 86 deg as of July 2013. Enjoy the gentle rain at night and usually sunny days. Dont bring beach towels as we supply them for you!
Lava flow (changes daily) is only a short drive of 25 mins and Volcano National park is about an hr or less at a 4000 ft elevation from house.
House is great for family or friends traveling together. The neighborhood is small and friendly. Pahoa is only 15 mins away and there are grocery store, health food store and restaurants. There is a pharmacy and medical urgent care (if needed). There are many farmer's markets in the area - on Sundays, Saturday and in Hilo on Wed and Saturday.
You are also welcome to whatever is available in our garden - things are just starting but at the moment! Different times of the year we have mango, surinum cherries, tomatoes, beans, you just never know what pops up!
Smoking of anything is outside only!
