A cozy one bedroom, one bath cottage with an open floor plan kitchen/dining/living room is your home base for exploring the Kalapana Coast on the Big Island. The manager and local artist, Heather Wilkinson, lives next door in a two-story house in Seaview Kalapana Estates with her dog Lupita. Heather will be your source for how to get the most out of your stay on the Puna (east side) of the island.
Your unit accommodates up to two persons with a full size bed in the bedroom and a single size futon in the living room. The kitchen is equipped with dishware, pots and pans, etc. and has a microwave oven, coffee maker, gas stove and refrigerator. Brand new state of the art water filtration system so you can drink out of the faucets. The entire house is on solar power. Parking is provided just outside your front door. Wireless internet is complimentary. We have a coin-operated washing machine and a propane dryer. There are also clothes lines available for drying right outside the Ohana in a covered sitting area. The atmosphere in Puna is totally laid back, friendly, and in tune with Nature.
There are locals markets Wednesday night and Saturday morning 10 minutes down the road at Uncle Roberts Kava Bar. The larger, Makuu market is on Sundays. Kahena Black Sand Beach is only a three minute drive from the Coconut Lanai. We are four miles as the crow flies from Fissure 8, which for three months poured out a fountain and river of lava that covered much of Kapoho. Now the lava has stopped and we are waiting for various parts of the red road to open back up so we can access brand new black sand beaches and warm ponds. Things are constantly changing here.
