About the place

The host has committed to follow the COVID-19 cleaning protocol issued by misterb&b to offer travelers the greatest level of safety.

A beautiful modern house awaits as you explore the world's most active volcano. Nearby, enjoy rustic hikes through one-of-a-kind lowland tropical rainforests, or surf at the new lava-made Black Sand Beaches of Poho'iki and Kapoho. Wednesday night at Uncle Robert's from 4pm-9pm is live music, food and dance. Clothing optional Kehena beach is where you can swim with wild dolphins and go fishing! Kaimu and Pahoa have groceries and shops. The open landscaping provides plentiful and tropical breezes.

You will need to rent a car from Kona or Hilo airport in order to get around the Big Island as it is big.

This one bedroom, one bathroom home built in 2015 has all modern conveniences including high speed internet, washer/dryer, stove, oven, hot/cold triple filtered water from the catchment system typical in the area since there is no public water utility. Electricity is on grid. It is a clean and simple layout.

Kalapana Seaview Estates subdivision in the southeast district of Puna on the Big Island of Hawaii. Just minutes away from the black sand beach, Kehena, there are smoothie and fruit vendors that pop up on sunny days. Hikes along stark, black lava rock coast lines and lowland rainforests make this area unique. Many agricultural endeavors also go on in the area, worth exploring, including spear and reel fishing. Ecstatic Dancing is a popular happening in the area, as well as a variety of festivals.

- You can self check in with a lock box by the front door.

- Hawaii has a General Excise Tax and Transient Accommodation Tax. Because MisterBandB does not offer a function to pass on these tax burdens to you, some hosts charge and collect these fees in person upon arrival! I however do not, as I include the tax burden in the total price of your MisterBnB booking. No additional exchange of money necessary. However, law requires that I visibly include the breakdown to you here...

Where "j" = your MisterBandB total and "q" = my taxable amount.

("j" - MisterBandB fees) = ("q" x (Transient Accommodation Tax of 13.25%)) + ("q" x (General Excise Tax of 4.712%)) + ("q")

Here is the formula again simplified...
("j" - MisterBandB fees) = ("q" x ********)

Mahalo! Thank you for supporting Hawaiian Government and Bureaucracy!

I also need to display the Short Term Vacation Rental Non-Conforming Use Certification requirements to you. By booking this place you agree that...

This was a wonderful space to relax in while enjoying and exploring Puna and the Big Island. It was very clean and comfortable, with cute and welcoming design touches throughout. Jacob was great and very accommodating. Overall, highly recommended for the restful jungle oasis vibe.

A fantastic place to kickback relax and enjoy all that this area has to offer, the house is open and spacious and very well equipped for a self contained retreat from the noise of life.
