THE LAVA SANCTUARY

The Lava Sanctuary is quiet and remote, far from other homes, and is completely off the grid. The views of the ocean, nearby jungle, and lava are stunning. It is especially remarkable for Puna that there are no coqui frogs or mosquitoes here, nor ants to speak of. Only 40 minutes from Hilo, it is in the driest part of Puna, the southeast part of the Big Island. Here it is always breezy, and never feels hot. Vog (natural volcanic air pollution) is extremely rare, a few days a year, thanks to the wind blowing it the other way 99% of the time. The ocean is just a 10-min walk away! There is ample AC power 24 hours / day from 1400 watts of solar panels. Unlimited high-speed internet included. Great cell phone reception with Verizon and AT&T. The house contains a two-bedroom apartment which is currently available for rent at a low price. For more information, please see my Air BnB listing, and then call this number: dial 330, then R-E-A-L-L-Y, and the digit 0. Please leave a voice message and mention that you saw it on this web page.
