The ultimate local experience whil providing comforts to make your stay enjoyable. Live in traditional Hawaiian style homes, eat in a traditional Hawaiian style kitchen. For guests unfamiliar with the Big Island, it is not like the other islands people travel to. If Oahu is more American, the Big Island is more of a Polynesian Island. Our property allows guests to enjoy a genuine local experience. From the cabin, a quick walk down the path leads to the shared kitchen which has a propane grill and side burner and picnic table. There are also pots and pans, silverware, plates, and glasses. Please be aware that this is a shared community kitchen. We WERE off grid but do have power now. Lights in the cabin are solar powered, there is an electrical strip provided that will charge your phones and laptops. We recently replaced the composting toilets with flushing toilets as well. Each cabin has its own tankless, propane water heater for endless hot showers. At night your ears will be greeted by the forest with sounds of coqui frogs. Many people love them 🐸 Please search for Bathing Suits and Rain Boots on YouTube to find a video of what our property sounds like at night. Our channel also features videos of tours we offer. More to be uploaded, check back often! Our tours include off the beaten path adventures ranging from sunrises and geothermal Kings baths, to prawn hunting to hikes that lead to waterfalls! They are all local gems that you will not find online or offered by any other tour guide agency. We are updating our ig @bathingsuitsandrainboots regularly with footage from adventures as well! Boogie boards and snorkel gear is often available when I'm not using it for a tour. There is a detailed welcome packet with a variety of mostly free but some paid must see/do activities on the island! There are a total of three cabins on the one acre lot. The owners are on property, two other residents, other guests may or may not be here as well. There is a dog Valentine, two outdoor cats named Ghost and Tomi, and chickens/ducks. There is one queen bed in the cabin, an extra queen air mattress can be added on the floor if needed. Please message for details if coming with a larger group. Jungle massages are available on site starting at $75 for the hour. Please note the main image capturing a lava cliff sunrise is not visible from the cabin. It is about a 30-40 minute drive from us 🌊 ☀️ 🌋 We are at 1880ft elevation so it can get chilly at night. Winters are also rainy season so if traveling to the Big Island in the winter, I suggest some light layers for warmth, a raincoat and rain boots.
