About this listing
Sunny room in a Hawaiian rainforest, on the 2nd floor of a beautiful home. This well appointed room has a queen size bed and private bath. Close to town, yet you won't know it. The house sits on 6 acres of tropical rainforest, with no other homes in sight, and the landscape is filled with huge trees, tropical plants and exotic flowers. Just outside old Pahoa town, with it's array of restaurants, and near the Red Road, Hot Ponds, naked beach, world class snorkeling, surfing and lava viewing.
My home is out in the middle of a few acres that are a lifelong landscape project for me. Not another house in sight, you'll feel like you are away from civilization, but in reality only minutes from Pahoa town, the beach, hot ponds, and the Red Road. 20 minutes to Hilo. 20 minutes to the volcano. 2 hours from Kona.
You will have your own room and bath on the second floor. A sunny room with windows on three sides looking out over the forest and gardens. WiFi, and group area with TV. A nice kitchen with everything you could need is also available to share. Wander the beautiful property, discover hidden gardens and ponds. Marvel at the variety of tropical plants and flowers.
Interaction with guests
You will probably want to rent a car if staying here, but the around the island "Hele On" bus has a stop just a short walk away. Depends on how much running around you want to do. I am retired guy and might be available to act as tour guide, taxi, etc. I spend most days at the coast, beach or hot ponds, when not gardening.

I'm a single guy recently retired from a successful career in California. I have a passion for adventure and travel, and I love to meet new people and to go new places. I am 4th generation on the Big Island, and I know most of the secret spots and happenings. I'm up with the sun everyday, and usually turn in fairly early. Much of my time is spent in my 6 acre garden, when I'm not out exploring the island. I have a laid back lifestyle with most days starting in the water, either at the beach or hot ponds. I love to surf, swim, fish, snorkel and scuba dive, really anything in or near the water. My kids and grandkids live 2 hours away, and I get to see them fairly often. My home is gay friendly and 420 friendly, but I prefer no smoking in the house. As a host, I keep to myself unless needed. The level of my participation in your experience is up to you. Some levels of food, transport, or tour guide assistance are also available if desired.
