Paradise. This place is now my favorite place in the world. The house comes fully equipped with towels, games, books and everything you need to fully enjoy your time in the jungle. It's the most peaceful and beautiful property I have ever stayed at. There are three bedrooms so it is perfect for big groups! Full kitchen with filtered drinking water, a large deck with hammocks, an amazing outdoor shower and so much more. I could not recommend this place enough!
We had such an amazing experience at the jungle house! The screened windows allow you to experience all of the wonderful jungle sounds (birds, frogs, etc) while being fully protected from the bugs. The property itself is very well kept with a nice, secluded lawn and play area for the kiddos. There are a ton of fruit trees and we were able to grab some bananas to add to our breakfast. We especially loved hanging out on the porch with our morning coffee or afternoon beer! I would highly recommend staying here!!
About the house - very clean and well kept. There is one very large bedroom up some rather steep stairs (not a problem for us but be mindful with kiddos or adults that might have difficulty with this. Downstairs is the kitchen, living room, one small bedroom with a single bed and an additional bedroom with a queen sized bed and little patio. The porch is off the living room and has swings and a nice sitting area. Bathroom is not entirely inclosed (its screened in but there are some gaps), though this wasn't an issue for us. There is only a tub in the bathroom and a spray nozzle. For upright showers, you can head to the outdoor shower which was so nice! The water was consistently warm and felt like a treat in the humidity.
House is fully stocked with towels, soap, etc. There were some spices and cooking oils as well. The house runs on solar and since it was a little cloudy during our trip, we relied on the generator quite a bit, which wasn't a problem at all. There is a potable water spout in the kitchen sink but we ended up purchasing some water for cooking and drinking, just to be safe. I'm sure the water is fine, though. Oven did not work during out stay. Kitchen was fully stocked with cooking utensils, pots, pans, etc.
About the area - this is a very secluded house off the beaten path but still close enough to all of the amenities. We loved heading down the road to Uncle Robert's which has a nice little market and some food options. There is a market on Wed nights that is supposed to be incredible, but we weren't there at that time. I believe that some of the hot pools nearby were covered with the recent lava flow, but there are apparently still some to enjoy. There is a black sand, clothing optional beach within a short drive as well. The main house is on a dirt road and just a short walk to the ocean, though not to a swimmable area.
House is less than an hour from Hilo. We drove up for the Sunday farmers market which I would highly recommend! Also an easy drive to Volcano park.
Overall, would say this house was a definite highlight of our trip! If you are looking for something a little different but with all of the comforts of a nice home, this is the place for you! I hope to make it back someday. Aloha!
The Jungle House exceeded our expectations. Definitely a major highlight of a magical trip to the big island. The house was clean, spacious, and airy. We loved listening to the sounds of the jungle as we fell asleep and walking to the nearby beach to watch the sunrise. The outdoor shower was amazing, and the kitchen was well equipt. We loved swimming with spinner dolphins in the distance at Kehana beach and going to Uncle Roberts for the Wednesday night market. We will definitely be back!
Nice cabin, insufficient power
The jungle house was nice and we felt like we were in nature. The lack of windows (mosquito nets instead) gave the place a breezy feel and the nearby beach is beautiful and rugged.
The solar and batteries at the jungle house were not sufficient. Even after a sunny day, we would come home at 9pm and turn on a few lights and power would run out. So we figured out how to start the generator, but the sound of a generator really removes the feeling of being in the jungle.
If only the internet(no coverage, so we needed the wifi) and a few battery powered lamps would last all night, we would be fine, but instead we had to start up the generator every night and every morning.
