Welcome to the Lava Tree Bungalow, where the adventure of living in the jungle, meets modern convenience to create a memory of Hawaii that will be treasured for a lifetime. Here you will enjoy 5 private acres with the closest access to Lava Tree State Park on the island. Located just 5 minutes from Pahoa and the Kapoho hot ponds, 15 minutes from the active lava flow site, 30 minutes from Hilo, and 45 minutes from Hawaii Volcano National Park this is a perfect place for everyone to enjoy.
All of the amenities in the house including wifi, as well as an outdoor firepit, gazebo, and horseshoe pit. Linens, towels, toilet paper, and kitchen supplies are all provided, we only ask that you bring your own beach towels and do not take the bathroom towels to the beach.
Interaction with guests
My boyfriend Connor and I live on a separate house on the property that is away from the Bungalow which allows us to accommodate your spacial and privacy needs. Whether you would like to be left to yourself or sit down and talk story we will respect and accommodate. We also have 4 wonderful small dogs that love to interact with our guests. One of us will try to be present at your arrival and you will be provided with our contact information upon arrival as well.
Other things to note
The Bungalow is in a secluded area, protected from most human created noise and light. Staying in the tropics means interacting with nature and all it has to offer. Please understand that many measures are taken to keep the Bungalow bug free, but some bugs are to be expected. The best way to limit this during your stay is by not leaving any food out uncovered, dirty dishes in the sink, or leaving the doors open at night with the lights on.
Staying in the tropics may also mean more humidity and rain than you're used to. Don't let the rain put you off, it is warm rain that you most likely won't even need a light sweater for. If you have clothes, towels, or shoes that need drying, make sure they are hung up and off the floor, they will not dry on the floor.
Finally, we have many native species that live on and around the property. You will be able to hear the coqui frogs song at night, geckos barking during the evening hours, as well as many types of birds and possobly the occasional Hawaiian Hawk. These animals stay away from the Bungalow, with the exception of the geckos. They will hang out with you inside, but don't worry they won't bother you. They eat the smaller insects and keep the larger ones away.
We hope you will enjoy your immersion in the Hawaiian Jungle as much as we do!
- We ask that all of our guests be kind to our animals and the native plants that grow on our property. We also ask that shoes be removed before going in the house and lights and fans be turned off when no one will be home.
