Puna Rainforest Retreat
A Retreat from the Busy Everyday World

Puna Rainforest Retreat

Aloha!
Come and stay with us! We are offering a "Pele" special of $200/week (plus tax and $40 cleaning fee) for single or double occupancy until the end of the year. By the end of September, you should be able to walk up to the lava flow! It is moving AWAY from us and downhill and downwind. We are enjoying the cleanest air in years since the trade winds blow in our direction and are blowing away any smoke/vog from the lava flow.  We have solar panels, our own water supply, satellite internet and a swimming pool so come on down and stay with us where the action is.
We have four vacation rentals for a one-night stay or longer or for a group retreat. We are the former owners of
award-winning Waterfalls Inn Bed & Breakfast in Hilo, Hawaii, and we now offer vacation rentals in the Puna Forest Reserve, just three miles outside of Pahoa towards Kalapana. We have free wireless internet for our guests, suitable for checking emails and websites, but not for streaming. Our cottages offers privacy, quiet and luxurious pillow-top mattresses with 400 thread count cotton sheets and feather pillows. Each cottage has a full bath and cooking facilities. If we are cut off from HELCO (the power grid) we will transition to only solar power and will share a solar freezer and solar refrigerator. Our water system and UV light will be solar powered. You will be able to recharge cell phones, computers, etc.


Our four vacation rental cottages rates start at $70/night for single or double occupancy (extra persons are $10/night extra) plus a one-time cleaning fee of $40 for 7 days or more stays. Hawaii taxes are added onto the total (13.41%). The monthly rate is $1500.00, plus $40 cleaning fee and tax. We have two suite cottages (Yellow Hibiscus and Lavender Orchid) that have two rooms, a kitchenette, and a full bath. We have two studio cottages (Green Bamboo and Casa Azul) that are one large room and come with full kitchens and full baths.



Our cottages have full baths and kitchen counters with granite countertops, luxury pillowtop beds with 400 thread count cotton sheets, and a tropical decor will make your stay very enjoyable. The cottages all have a coffee pot, blender, toaster, pots and pans, dishes and basic kitchen necessities. The stars at night are truly amazing, and the sunrise over the ocean will certainly delight you. You will be serenaded at night by frogs and by birds during the day.


We are centrally located in Puna near Pahoa Village (3 miles), Lava Tree State Park (4 miles), Ahalanui Beach Park (8 miles), Pohoiki Bay Park, Issac Hale Beach Park, Kalapana and the new black sand beach. Visit Uncle Robert's farmers' market on Wednesday nights, Makuu Farmers' Market on Sundays, and Hilo Farmers' Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Only 30 miles to Hilo, 40 miles to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and 50 miles to Mauna Kea Observatory.


Our policies: One half of your total amount is due in order to reserve a cottage for your stay. The balance is due 30 days prior to your arrival. We offer a full refund if you cancel up to 30 days prior to your arrival. Because of the difficulty in renting our cottages at the last minute, we cannot offer refunds if you cancel within 30 days of your arrival.
