The space

The volcano is restless but here we have clear skies, quiet nights and are pretty much unaware of the lava some miles away. A lifetime opportunity to see creation from a lava boat tour or helicopter you don’t want too miss. Visit Makana Kai while this opportunity exists for sometimes it goes away quicker then it began. Makana Kai is a one bedroom one bath ocean view apartment with open beam ceiling, granite counters, bamboo and tile flooring offering a luxury island feeling where life is slower and ripe with the diversity of the Big Island. It's split-level layout provides privacy and comfort for one or two and offers an excellent home base to relax or return each day from exploration. One can enjoy rarely traveled jungle roads, creation in the making with new black sand beaches and varying volcano activity, or view the world from Mauna Kea’s Observatories above 13, 700 ’ elevation.
An island of secluded beaches, tropical forests, and 11 of the earths 13 climate zones offers incredible hiking trails, scenery and viewing of exotic birds and plants found nowhere else.
Vintage Hilo Town and Pahoa offer a glimpse of older Hawaii with early century buildings, farmers markets and a strong dose of the Aloha Spirit.
NOTE: This is a non-smoking facility. 14.25% Hawaii State Tax included in stated price.
A place of inspiration for artists, writers or spiritual reflection, you can totally relax, soaking in the balmy weather or enjoy any of the 101 activities the island has to offer.

Gary's place was situated right by a beach and in a nice and quiet spot about 20 mins drive from Hilo Town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay- Gary's place was just as advertised. The place was clean, well furnished and had great amenities. We had some issues finding the entrance bu…

Gary and Karen were wonderful hosts, ensuring our stay was perfect despite the rain. The pictures do not give this unit justice - tastefully decorated, clean and tidy. Banana bread, fruit and coffee available on arrival. Gary and Karen are very respectful of your privacy yet alwa…

After receiving a warm welcome from Gray, I found the whole place is actually much nicer than how it looks in photos. Definitely it is one of my best Airbnb experience.

We felt very welcome and the place was very nice. They have an amazing book of suggestions and information. We made it to the Wednesday Farmer’s market nearby and had a blast. Definitely somewhere we would stay again!

Very nice, clean place, looks better in person than from photos. Great location too. Quiet area, walk to the ocean only a few feet away.

Mild-mannered gentleman with sense of humor and love of life who occasionally ponders the question. "What's it all about?" Having lived in Hawaii for well over 17 years I've yet to find the answer, but I honestly can't think of a better place to look for it.
