Come stay at our Kehena garden spot. Vacation and longer term Rentals near Kalapana.

We feature high quality, local style hosted


Kehena Honey House is a unique private house situated in a tropical garden and orchard.

The HONEY HOUSE is a delightful 480 sq ft stand-alone studio. Featuring custom woodwork and a large custom tiled shower. Hi speed wifi.

Whole house water filtration.

We have an acre of gardens and fruit trees to relax in, a shared outdoor shower in the garden for all of us "naturists", and a flock of tame ducks to keep us laughing.

Of course we have wifi.....,recently upgraded to fiberoptic 1Gbps.

Our property is clothing optional like nearby Kehena Beach.

The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware and plates and utensils, toaster, coffee maker, pots and pans, blender...

Gas stove, microwave, and toaster oven included. we can supply a  BBQ if desired. Big lovely counters.

We offer you whatever fresh fruit we have in season ranging from citrus and avocado, banana and coconut, jaboticaba and other exotics.

Kehena is a special place with warm and fragrant nights. It is a kipuka, literally a hole in the cooled lava, a place where the green jungle thrives on the slopes of the volcano. You will encounter bejeweled geckos, the night time chorus of tree frogs, maybe wild pigs. Sweet smelling flowers are a bloomin'.

Kehena beach is only a few minutes walk from our place. Sunny in the morning and shady in the afternoon. Every Sunday afternoon there is a big drum circle. Swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing and hanging out in the shade are all available. Spinner dolphins are frequent visitors and humpback whales come every winter.


No lava flows are happening at this time. These are views of the Kalapana flows a few years back.

Activity may return to Kilauea summit at any time. Still there are plenty of fresh new areas from the 2018 flows to explore.

See all the sights....

Relax and take a break from stress...

Stroll to the beach, listen to the waves, bliss out.

Aloha and welcome to the garden.

Guest reviews:


My girlfriend and I stayed for five nights, and we had the most amazing experience. Everything about the property was as advertised, and Dave was an incredible host. He was always available and responsive and regularly checked in with us to make sure everything was okay. And yes, he brought us fresh fruit from his property on several occasions! The Honey House itself was expansive, cozy, comfortable, and truly felt like a place of peace, positivity and seclusion. The kitchen was quite large for a house of that size, with everything fully stocked. Because of this, we absolutely loved cooking in the house. The bathroom was beautifully designed and the outdoor shower was a dream. Truly we felt like we were in paradise, able to immerse ourselves in the beauty and tranquility of the property away from the prying eyes of the modern world. We will be back!

My hope was to stay in a comfortable place, but in the heart of nature. This really fit the bill. Our house was clean and spacious, with screened windows on all sides. Intoxicating fragrance of plumeria flowers. Entrancing songs of birds to wake to. Hypnotic, sleep-inducing chorus of tree frogs at night. All the tools needed for cooking just about everything. Long list of spices, oils and condiments provided, so don’t do your shopping until after you arrive. Dave, our host, was a cornucopia of natural history and of an endless list of activities. Dave was so kind and respectful, usually right there working on the farm, never intrusive. Felt like an extremely safe environment.

5 stars on everything. This is a lovely little house in a peaceful private garden. It has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. Possibly our favorite Airbnb host ever...friendly, welcoming, and very knowledgeable about the area. We used this as a base for the beach, Volcano Nat'l Park, Kalapana Market, and a run to Isaac Hale Park. It's a beautiful area.

Superb and relaxing property with Dave the host being a fabulous source of information about the local area and kind enough to share fresh papaya, bananas and avocado from his garden surrounding the Honey house. Great antidote to the hustle and bustle of the more populated places on the Big island. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unique place.

 The Honey House is a special place. Having visited the Puna/Pahoa area for my forth year in a row, and having had stayed in many different cabins and bungalows, this is probably my favorite.

Great kitchen, king size bed and modern bathroom made this a comfort zone of relaxation which has been the best in my experience of all the places I have stayed.

Walk about 200 yards (188.82 meters!)

from one of the greatest beaches on the planet..!!

Dave is awesome and so are his coconut eating ducks!!!

Great location



Cant wait to return to the Honey House!! 3-21-2019

“Balmy weather and tropical breezes, island style, green surroundings, abundance”

Private guest house in nice setting.

We loved this place.

The host was great -- brought us fresh fruit one day! -- and the accommodations were just what we needed.

The house is located in a small neighborhood, great for morning walks, and there is a nice beach nearby.

Would definitely return!

"We very much enjoyed our stay... David was easy to reach, very responsive, and very generous with produce from the land. The avocados were particularly fabulous (and huge). The unit was comfortable, with a great kitchen and bathroom. The ambience was peaceful, with the sounds of frogs and birds all around. The location is ideal to enjoy the benefits of the Puna area. We really enjoyed the easy walk to Kehena beach and nearby ocean cliffs."
