Suite in Hawiian House with amazing views
In Hawaii we have a word: "Ohana". Now, the literal meaning of Ohana is family. but the way it is often used is to describe a guest house or spare bedroom, because that is where your Ohana would stay. So at The Terraces we try to provide both.
A place to rest your head and a place where you feel at home. The Terraces is a place where you are treated as Ohana. We are glad to have you on the island, and believe that most businesses try to color your Hawaii experience one way or another. The point of our farm, is that we don't. Hawaii is a beautiful place. Where you can have fun all day, and always come back to our Ohana and yours.
"The Terraces" is a educational and demonstration sustainable farm. Located on the south side of Hawaii's Big Island. We specialize in every thing from fresh food, to the Hawaii experience. But every thing we do here we do with love, a smile, and the Aloha spirit.
The Terraces' motto is, "where small things matter, choose wisely." Our mission is to provide an environment in paradise, where you choose your vacation.
We have every thing from vegetables and meals, to Big Island knowledge. But that is far from the end product. Here we are trying to make a place, a home, and a foundation for the Hawaii experience YOU want.
We have good cell phone service, and parking and we can tell you about many of the "secret spots" in Hawaii … but we do not have cable TV and internet access is via cell phone link.
We have plenty of fresh air and a 2980 foot elevation that makes air conditioning or heating obsolete. At night you can look out and on a clear night, see all the stars in the Milky Way that you miss in more "civilized" locations.
The suite has a large bedroom, large living room and bathroom. Infant and child beds, as well as floor mats are available. Teens and older children are welcome to sleep in our son's tree house, as he and his friends did many, many, nights.
Local attractions include: South Point, Green Sand Beach, Black Sand Beach (Punulu'u), the fishing village of Milolii, Nahalehu, Manuka State Park, Wood Valley, Road to the Sea, Hookena, Whittington Beach State Park, Pahala, coffee farms and Wood Valley.
Local activities include: hiking, swimming, snorkeling, ocean side cliffs for jumping and diving, snorkeling, volcanoes, lava hikes, dolphin swims, and whales (in season).
We are neither a B&B; nor a restaurant so we can not serve meals and charge for them. However, sit-down dinners are important to us. We welcome our guests, as friends, to eat with our family and contribute what they will toward the cost of food and preparation as a donation … we have no hard and fast rules, we just want to keep it revenue neutral. We solicit your preferences and see meals as enjoyable social occasions. You are welcome to make your own meals, just let us know when you want join us, or if you need to have any box lunches made for your excursions.
Prices include local tax of 13.5%.
We find that some guests want to "move in" and be part of the local community and even, on occasion, the family … that's fine, others want an efficient and comfortable base to operate from on their vacation with a minimum of interaction, we respect and honor that approach too.
There are Buses twice daily to Kona and Hilo except on Sunday, schedules may be found by searching for "heleon bus Hawaii"

If an alternative experience of Hawaii is what you're seeking then this is the place for you. Come experience this cute little cabin nestled in the woods, surrounded by tall Ohia trees and lots of tropical birds to serenade you. Situated on the edge of a National Park, at 2000' elevation (which means it might get a bit chilly at times), on a very private, peaceful, gated 20 acre piece of land on the Southern most part of the Big Island. Located half way between Kona and Hilo with grocery stores and restaurants nearby, not far from the Hawaii Volcano National Park where you can view the lava going into the ocean, the famous Green Sands Beach and Punalu'u the black sand beach where you'll find Hawaiian Hawksbill turtles sunning on the sand.
The cabin has one bedroom with a queen size bed, one bathroom with plenty of on demand hot water, a complete kitchen and is completely self sufficient and off the grid - solar power, water catchment, propane appliances. Linens, dishes, pots and pans, a blender, and a coffee press are available for your convenience. Since the only power is from the sun, no hair dryer, curling iron, or things of that nature can be used. There's a DVD player with a variety of movies for your entertainment. Most cell phones work here and will pick up the internet. Smoking permitted outside only. Please no outside guests or visitors or pets.
