Retreat, relax and watch the stars
Our first trip to the big island and we wanted to see both sides. This house was the perfect place to unplug and take a deep breath. Totally private, absolutely clean and with all the basics you could need (good knives in the kitchen, boogie boards and beach chairs, and very comfortable bed, plus the friendly geckos). The owner and the caretaker were both very responsive. The location is a bit of a drive from everything, but this island is like that. But if you want to hang in Puna, it's perfectly located for the Pohiki Boat Ramp (local's favorite surf spot), hot ponds, snorkeling in Kapoha (maybe the best in my life), weekly party at Uncle Roberts (it's quite a scene), and a night visit to the crater. The stargazing is amazing here - there is only one visible light from a distant neighbor. Otherwise you have this expansive view, lovely tropical breezes and the perfect kitchen to make easy pupus and cocktails. It took us a few days to slow down, and once we did, we just wanted to get back to the house and spend our afternoons/evenings on the deck or watching a movie. Thanks for sharing your home away from home.
