A simple yurt, paradise-comfortable, + reasonably priced. Furnished for 1-3 people in a remote private area of Nanawale Estates. Heart of Pahoa Village is only 5 miles away, voted by BudgetTravel as one of the “coolest small American towns” 2014.
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.
The interior layout is customized for your reservation at 4 people max. Bedding is one double-height queen-size air mattress, one twin-size air mattress in frame, + a single futon (chair converts to bed).
Outdoor dining is under “solar shack” cover + by the fish pool with tropical plants.
Typical seasonal food blessings are bananas, avocado, passion fruit, chives, rosemary, varied herbs + teas, Hawaiian spinach + cherry/grape tomatoes. The mango tree is growing!
This property is semi off-grid with solar plumbing, propane, + conventional electric power. 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.
There is WiFi satellite Internet + good cell phone connectivity. 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 cooler months. 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 + 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 guided tours, catering, + 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). Most visitors love these jungle-type sounds while others prefer to use complimentary ear plugs. Also, be aware that nature’s rain forest does include mosquitoes, which are prominent late afternoons.
Young “Midnight” is the property cat who likes to drink from the fish pools. She resides in the school bus camp when the yurt is occupied. Neighbors have friendly dogs + feral cats are common in the hood.
Check out “Uncle Robert’s” on Saturday mornings for the small but cool “Outer Space” farmers’ market + Wednesday evenings with entertainment. Famed + large Maku’u market is Sunday mornings ($2 drive/entry fee). Free parking in the Nanawale Sunday market, less than a mile from the yurt. Most 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!
