This home is a must stay! It features a unique vibe, amazing views, and an upper and lower lanai for sunning/lounging. It's truly a beautiful spot!

A charming Halé on the Big Island. Kalapana Shores is located in the lower Puna District of Pahoa, thirty minutes south of Hilo. This lush side of the Island is abundant with life and a short drive finds you to views of Kilauea lava flow, visit Volcano National Park, sun at the Black Sand beaches and explore many unique spots on the island!

The house was perfect for our 3 generation family holiday, we occupied both floors and it couldn't have been better. Very comfortable, in beautiful surroundings and a very friendly neighbourhood. Our wedding ceremony under the gazebo in the garden was very romantic and so very sp…

A couple of unexpected things arose during Marian's stay. For example, the water line on the fridge broke and also the county had to do some water pipe replacement on the street. Marian was so great to call us right away so we could make sure she and her family had what they needed. We love that you had your wedding ceremony on the gazebo, we had ours there, too! Our neighbors were so happy to meet you all - you are always welcome back at Kalapana Shores. Mahalo and always with Aloha!

Came here to celebrate my birthday, had the best time ever! I personally prefer not to be in touristy areas, so this place was perfect. Remote location, but still easy to find just off one of the main roads. Gives you an authentic feel of the island. The house was a bit muggy whe…

Great place to stay to enjoy a quieter atmosphere with only a short drive to beach parks, farmers markets, and Pahoa. We had 10 adults in our group and had plenty of room. Enjoyed this home a great deal.
