Located on the Big Island of Hawaii. Nestled on the flanks of Mauna Loa at 2800 ft., this multi-facetted 12-sided home awaits you. Sweeping views of the southern end of the Big Island of Hawaii. Beautifully designed & appointed home. A rural area located between Kona & Hilo.
The house, location and the land - you may never be in a house quite like this again. This beautiful 12 sided house with redwood and cedar interior was built on primal lava land. It has strand woven bamboo floors and a 16' high dome ceiling with a 6' wide skylight for moon gazing at night or watching the clouds float by during the day. It is appointed with delightful beds (queen size) and furnishings. There is a queen size futon in the living room.
Full kitchen, living room, two bedrooms, one bath and front deck.

The house is at 2800'. It can be a bit cool at night (wintertime only) so be sure to bring a sweater for the late evening and morning. The house cools down at night but if you go outside onto the deck first thing in the morning you will warm right up. Beds are toasty warm! If you stay long enough, you will experience just about every kind of weather imaginable! It's all good though. The house is located about eight miles from the ocean as the crow flies.
This area of Hawaii is very rural and removed from the resorts and environment of Kona and Hilo. We are located in the country. Very quiet here. We are located about 1 1/2 hours from both Kona and Hilo International Airports.
Except for the local bar, mostly all businesses are closed up around 9 or 10pm. This area is rugged lava land and vegetation is sparse in many areas.

A lover of warm weather. I first came to the islands about 15 years ago and immediately knew I would build a home here. I built the house myself (with a bit of help). I love this particular area of Hawaii.
I am a ballroom dancer. My favorite dance is perhaps west coast swing followed by nightclub two step. I also dance cha-cha, rumba, waltz and others. On the island here I hike a lot and spend a lot of time just doing nothing.
