“A dream minimalist getaway”
Accommodations: Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 3-4)Why not make your trip unforgettable by staying somewhere so remarkable that it made the front page of The New York Times? On June 30, 2005, POHAKUNANI (Hawaiian for 'The Beautiful Rocks'), appeared on both the front page and inside the home section of The NEW YORK TIMES, having also been featured in the June issue of CALIFORNIA HOME & DESIGN magazine. With architecture by Craig Steely and interior & landscape design by Robert Trickey, Pohakunani also appears in two design & architecture books: ISLAND LIVING, by Linda Leigh Paul, (pub: Rizzoli), and MINIMALIST HOUSES by Simone Schleifer (pub: Taschen). Why all this publicity? When you see the sleek simplicity of the design setting off the jagged lava field, framing stunning views that sweep from the ridge of the rift zone down to the glimmering ocean, you’ll know why. We now offer either the self-contained Guest House (sleeps 1 to 4) or the Guest Room in the Main House in a shared arrangement (sleeps 1 or 2). The Main House is no longer available-- Sorry. At 850 square feet, the private Guest House Studio Unit is spacious enough to feel like a real home, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors (opening onto the unit’s own lanai) seem to extend the space, capturing the lovely garden like a gorgeous painting. The Guest Room in the Main House, though smaller, has a lovely view of the expansive lava field and ocean through the wall of glass. It contains a Cal. King bed, closet and desk, and shares the downstairs bath, and access to the kitchen can be arranged for additional charges. This is a great option for people on the go who want to do a lot of sight seeing, and don't require a lot of space in their accommodation. Please note that the automated calendar below tracks ONLY the availability of the single Guest House unit, so if you're interested in the Main House Guest Room, please contact us directly. At Pohakunani, you'll find a more stylish, tasteful and private experience than any of the other rentals in the area, at comparable prices. Here, you can enjoy all the wild beauty of this place from a comfortable and sophisticated vantage point. Many of our guests find themselves just hanging around the deep-blue pool for hours on end, relaxing in the quiet, other-worldly beauty of the place (and most express the wish that they didn’t have to leave!) With regard to Puna, if you haven’t stayed in this area before, you’ll be amazed to find such a truly heavenly and unspoiled part of “Old Hawaii” as these parts— Lush and green, yet drier and better for outdoor activities than other parts of Puna— You’ll see why residents think of it as “our little secret”.
