Photos and Description of the Pahoa vacation farmhouse rental

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 Air Conditioned By Our Trade Winds

This custom-built one bedroom, one bath home sits above a 6 acre macadamia nut orchard with views of the Puna coastline from its living room, kitchen, bedroom, and expansive lanai. Days begin with sunrise over the Pacific as the house faces due east. Your weather forecasting skills will improve as what's in store can usually be seen making its way from ocean to shore. The house is surrounded by a selection of tropical plans, palms, bamboo, and citrus trees, along with a vegetable and herb garden. Guests are always welcome to sample the produce that's in season during your stay.

The Farm House comfortably accommodates up to four guests with a queen-sized bed in the bedroom and a queen-sized sofa bed in the living room. The kitchen is fully equipped with cookward, utensil and dish sets, a microwave, mini-prep and blender. The dining table seats four to six as does the teak table and chairs on the lanai. Your living area is on the second level with the ground level for parking, a tool/utility room, outdoor shower, and cinder star-viewing terrace. With a number of stairs to enter the house from either of two staircases, this property is not well suited to guests with mobility concerns. An on-property caretaker is available during your stay to answer questions about local attractions or provide other assistance.

The MacNut Farm House is off the grid in a primarily agricultural area of the Puna District, 45 minutes to the south and east of Hilo. The house is located up a gated private road surrounded by properties of 5 to 20 or more acres in size. Though there is no telephone landline at the house many cell services work fine and WiFi access is provided. You'll have privacy but not isolation since groceries, banking, and even a Long's Drugs are just 5 miles away in the town of Pahoa. At the Farm House you can experience the land, sea, and sky without leaving its living room and lanai, or while walking through the orchard. Trade winds bring us some of the cleanest air in the world as the only land mass to the south of us is Antartica!

Isaac Hale Beach Park & Boat Ramp
Car: necessary

The MacNut Farm House is 1 1/2 miles from Lava Tree Park where one can see how lava formed as it cooled. Driving down Pohoiki Road through one of the island's oldest Mango groves brings you to the Isaac Hale Beach Park and boat ramp. During lava flows, boat tours leave several times a day for a ride south to see lava meeting the Pacific. For the experienced, boogey boarding or surfing is popular. Or you can just cool off with a jump into the water off the ramp! A five minute drive north along the coastline brings you to the Ahalanui warm pond. There is easy staired access to the pond which is a blend of heated spring and ocean waters.

Making the one hour drive to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park is well worth the time. Do plan to spend several hours as there is plenty to see on foot or while driving down Chain of Craters Road and around the Kilauea caldera.

The town of Pahoa, five miles from our location, offers its own rustic charms with several restaurants, two banks, used book store, sports bar, drug, hardware and grocery stores. Every Sunday there is also a farmer's market.

Puna has several such markets in locations no more than 15-20 minutes from the Farm House. If you want to sample to local fare along with Hawaiian music, a trip to Uncle Robert's on Wednesday evenings is a must!
