Relax in sleek, contemporary style at this modern Pahoa getaway, a private screen home once featured in the pages of Dwell Magazine. Walk the black sands of Kehena Beach in the warm island sunshine, and come home to a striking living space with a 500-foot deck where you can dine and unwind among gorgeous monkeypod trees.

The home features open concept living with entry on the top floor over a walking bridge. From the unique entryway, take in the splendor of the giant monkey-pod tree in the back yard. The home was built to highlight the natural beauty of the area. There is a comfortable living room as well as a sprawling sun deck and plenty of yoga gear if you want to take your sun salutations on the deck. The kitchen and dining areas are well-stocked and ready for your cooking adventures. Down the artful, red spiral stairs are two master suites each with a king sized bed, closet and en-suite bathroom. To note: both showers are out doors from the bathrooms, a unique Hawaiian experience.

What's nearby:
This home sits three-quarters of a mile north of the black sands of Kehena Beach (please note that this beach is clothing-optional), where dolphins are known to come by and frolic with swimmers. You'll be 10 miles down the coast from a spectacular surfing beach at Pohoiki, a 20-minute drive from popular restaurants like Paolo's, Ning's and Kaleo's, and 90 minutes by car from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The bustling town of Hilo, 32 miles north, is home to many shops, restaurants, and sources of entertainment as well.

"Perfect blend of off-grid & luxury
A memorable,enjoyable stay in what feels like a treehouse amongst the monkey pod trees. Very well maintained property. Very accurately described in the previous reviews. Wonderful communication/response time from host agency. Note: The 2 bedrooms are very intimate with each other- luckily the nighttime chorus of coqui frogs helps a bit with “sound privacy”☺️.
Would recommend highly to other adventurers who are seeking a non- touristy visit to the Big Island. Tip: you’ll likely be driving a lot to take advantage of all the big island has to offer, so invest in a comfortable rental car/suv. ��"

"Above expectations
My husband and I with two children stayed here and it was perfect!! I would not recommend with small children, the stairs are steep. Forest was noisy but didn’t bother us at all. In fact, we enjoyed it. I can’t explain how tranquil and calming this home is!! This is my dream home, a mixture of modern design and Nature. Had all pots, pans, plates, coffee maker, tea pot, toaster , etc. Will definitely stay here again!!!"

"Peaceful Hawaiian escape
We had a lovely time in this remote getaway. The kitchen was well equipped, the setting beautiful, and the architecture interesting. "

"Top hideaway in a splendid architectured home
Very good price performance in a very clean and comfortable home with nice outdoor showers, complete kitchen equipment and perfect mattresses!
What you should know: The two bedroooms are very nearby, the birds playing a nightround concert, the location is quite away from the next stores e.g.
Beside of this is was one of our best stays in a 3-week round trip to different hawaiian islands.
Don't miss the hidden black sand beach nearby!"

"K Beach Treasure
This was our second stay and it was even better than the first. The house is perfectly outfitted for a great stay at Kehena Beach. Our only disappointment was that we didn't stay longer. Hopefully we will be back next year."

"Very nice stay in Puna
A lovely property. Quiet area. We had everything we needed. "

"Pahoa Stay
This was a magical place! We absolutely loved the open air concept of the inside of the home, and enjoyed the sun out on the beautiful deck in the afternoons. The outdoor showers were such a treat as well, with one getting incredible morning sun. Shawna was so responsive and communicative, thank you! We will be back!"

"Unique experience
If you’ve ever wanted to live in a beautiful home in a tropical botanical garden with adorable emerald green gecko friends (and who hasn’t?) then this is your dream home.

Very comfortable and well stocked. The lack of AC was not a problem at all. It feels remote but is 20 minutes to an excellent grocery store and restaurants.

Because the living room is only screens, you may hear your neighbor’s muted conversation during the day. At night, the frogs are loud, however, we slept well with the doors closed and the windows open.

We would stay again."

"Unique and awesome stay
The Lava Flow home was a truly one in a lifetime experience. The home was truly incredible and the immersion into the beautiful setting is fantastic. We sleep to the sound of regret but of nature that surrounds the home. The outdoor showers are the perfect end to a perfect day. The nearby beach is beyond compare. Get there early and I’ll experience paradise all by yourself. "

"Can't Wait to Come Back
This home is so strikingly unique and I feel privileged to have stayed there. The kitchen is very well equipped (unlike most rentals), the property feels isolated thanks to the large amount of greenery surrounding the house, and the indoor / outdoor living room was phenomenal. If you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs with you as the sounds of the jungle may wake you (the frogs are loud at night). We all had an incredible time and I would love to return someday. "

"Great experience even for locals
We live here on the Big Island and booked Hale Ohai for a staycation so we could explore new parts of the island. The home was perfectly clean and we felt as though we were living in a private treehouse, surrounded by beautiful landscaping. We enjoyed several afternoons just down the road at Kahena Beach and loved having this home as our retreat after a long day of exploring."
