The living area.
The posts for the kitchen counter came from old o'hia trees from the property.
Cozy living room. The flat-screen TV has a built-in DVD player.
Sleep to nighttime breezes and wake to birds singing. Queen size bed.There's a closet along one wall
Guests can access the lanai from the bedroom for a coffee and watch the sunrise.
The bathroom counter is a slab of chocolate heart acacia, locally harvested and hand-finished.
A big walk-in shower overlooks the bamboo lined entrance.
The private entry road we share with two other neighbors.
Yellow bamboo lines the short driveway.
A view of the house from the orchard-in-process: guava, kalamansi, tangerine, lemon, and more.
View from the lanai in the morning.
When we bought the property,there was nothing planted except for the yellow bamboo and 2 o'hia trees
A typical sunrise. Must be seen to be understood.
Where the lava meets the sea, a plume of acidic steam can be seen.

Charming oceanview farmhouse, off the grid getaway.

Located at the end of a private road, our Pohoiki farmhouse (pronounced locally as Po-iki) is a tastefully appointed, off the grid home with magnificent ocean view. The home sits on five cleared acres and is planted with a variety of tropical flowers, exotic fruit trees, and even a testbed for growing tea. This is an off the grid retreat for visitors looking for serenity and a soothing, entirely different sort of Hawai'i vacation.

The house features a full kitchen; separate bedroom; large bathroom with walk-in shower and hand-crafted acacia wood counter; cozy living room with TV/DVD player; a dining room that comfortably seats four to six; and a large lanai featuring magnificent ocean views during the day and sublime stargazing at night.

This is our home, and although work k...

Reviewed 5 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

House and property have a lovely view of the ocean. It is so peaceful here after a busy day of sightseeing. The nearest town has a great market, eating places, and we plan on coming back. We were skeptical to stay on the Hilo side due to rain, but we actually had any at all. The drive along the coast...

About the neighbourhood
We are less than 10 minutes by car from old Pahoa Town (restaurants, gas, groceries, wonderful olympic-sized swimming pool) and a mere few miles from the Pohoiki boat ramp and the geothermally heated warm pond. Kalapana is 20 minutes south; the Hilo airport about 35 to 40 minutes north; Kilauea crater about 45 minutes. The location is ideal for exploring the eastern side of the island.

Sometimes it’s difficult to remember that our farmhouse is off the grid, but it is. We have plenty of county water, which is easily and quickly heated by an on-demand propane water heater. The stove and oven are propane as well, and the electrical is solar. The living is convenient and comfortable, however the experience is decidedly more detached – much less energy consumptive, much less plugged-in. Life...
