About This Property

Simple, paradise-comfortable, + reasonably priced. Exciting Kilauea's lava flow approaches Pahoa Town late 2014; be a witness! Once the flow crosses highway 130, alternative road routes with tropical island views will be available.

The Space
Welcome to my single-private rain forest home. Escape to simple living paradise with blooms + edible plants. Yurt lodging is beyond luxury camping with modern conveniences.

Comfortably furnished for 1-3 people with one queen-size air mattress bed, one twin-size air mattress + a single futon (chair converts to bed). Layout is customized for your reservation at 4 people max. Outdoor dining is under cover + by the fish pool.

You are welcomed with a tour + a basket of goodies. Typical seasonal food blessings are bananas, avocado, passion fruit, chives, rosemary, Okinawan spinach, + cherry tomatoes.

This property is semi off-grid with solar plumbing. If you are contemplating a yurt purchase, this is the perfect test with complimentary consultation to construct on Hawaii Island.

Use of towels, toiletries, bedding, kitchen accessories, + basic condiments included.

TV-monitor for movies supplied, or rent DVDs nearby. There is satellite Internet + good cell phone connectivity. Please respect gigabyte limits or purchase additional memory.

No air conditioning; the ceiling fan helps you enjoy the clean Pacific air. Although the windows and doors are screened, wandering geckos may appear during winter. They like to show off their enjoyable sport of eating mosquitoes + flies. Most like it when you talk to them :)

Simple + sustainable lifestyle here, composting is a natural in the tropics. You may find culinary linens made from worn textiles + most glassware consists of reused jars.

Typically, your stay requires a 3-day minimum advance reservation. (Because this is my home, immediate reservations are not available + note clean days are necessary between bookings).

Feel free to inquire about service options + fees. The kitchen may be stocked for your arrival, for example. Other considerations by reservation are catering, guided tours, delivery + concierge services.

Do be forewarned of wildlife sounds from nature! Coqui frogs + crickets sing to you during twilight while roosters crow (sometimes at odd hours) in the region. Most visitors love these jungle-type sounds while others prefer to use ear plugs. (Your stay includes complimentary ear plugs).

Neighbors have friendly pets + feral cats are common. Nature's rainforest does include mosquitoes, so be prepared.

Check out "Uncle Robert's" on Saturday mornings for the "Outer Space" farmers' market + Wednesday evenings with entertainment. Famed Maku'u market is Sunday mornings. All Hawaii markets offer produce, fantastic prepared foods (that you can eat there or carry out), gifts, aromatherapy, holistic services + musicians. More to share when you reserve!

Guest Access
Upon your reservation + arrival itinerary, a welcome tour is scheduled with driving instructions; plus a link for details about more things to see + do. Services + complimentary community swimming pool access require advance (but FREE) reservation; just ask!

Interaction with Guests
There is a school bus on the property that the owner typically sleeps in during your stay. You may find owner Delia daytime gardening or phone/text her with any queries.

The Neighborhood
Nanawale Estates is a large community of homes in a tropical rain forest climate. The yurt is a short distance to shore, warm ponds + other island climates.
This location is 2014 history-in-the-making with Kilauea's lava flow slowly reaching Pahoa Town. Once the flow is across the highway, alternative road routes will be available. Inquire for updates before you reserve.
Getting Around
Highly recommend that you rent a vehicle. The bus service is not dependably prompt. Hitchhiking is acceptable throughout the island. Sometimes you can find a local car deal on Craig's :)

Other Things to Note
The fish in the elevated lily pool love to be fed afternoons -- by the outdoor covered dining area. (Complimentary fish food; Seating for 2).

My wife and I had a wonderful time. At first she (my wife) was very skeptical but after we got there and relaxed we had a great time. We enjoyed the night time frogs singing and the rain on the roof at night was very comforting. The Yurt had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. A great memory!
