vacation rental description

Please visit our site: CastleInHawaii (dot com) for ALL details. If you inquire thru this site, PLEASE check your junk folder if you don't see something in your inbox (we always get back within 24 hours). Or give a call.

Our castle is a short walk to one of the best black sand beaches on Hawaii Island, the "big" island, where you can swim with wild dolphins (we have on a number of occasions!) A view of migrating whales is also possible from your lanai at the right time of year (December thru March). The active volcano, natural steam vents, lush tropical gardens & forests, majestic waterfalls, warm water pond, champagne pond and a bottomless green lake located in a crater, are also nearby for you to explore and enjoy. Historic Pahoa Village is only a short ten to fifteen minute drive and has a number of highly recommended restaurants and a Natural Food Store.

The Castle is a perfect getaway and home base for your visit to the “Big” Island. It is only minutes from Madame Pele where magic begins and the sky never ends. The accommodation has a wealth of character and features unusual art, custom-made furniture and unique designer details, adding to its charm. You will fall peacefully asleep on the amazing mattresses and awaken refreshed to the sweet songs of our indigenous birds. Lounge around or journey out to see the sights. Discover the absolutely unsurpassed beauty and stunning topographical contrasts this wonderful island has to offer. The spectacular scenery is a magnet for artists and the climate make it an 'anytime’ destination.

The castle has a moat (lap pool) with a water treadmill to swim in place. There is also a drawbridge and a dungeon. And one unique and fun feature we will leave as a surprise for you to discover when you get here! Your hosts have arranged everything to insure that your visit to the Castle is memorable.

Natural Adventures in relaxation abound - massage, watsu (water shiatsu), yoga, just name it and we have it here. For more detailed information contact the owner.

The seaside artist’s cottage is filled with windows and light, and is a couple of hundred feet from water. Conclude your days with quiet sunset evenings framed by spreading rainbows.

traveler reviews for this pahoa house rental

Carriage House is a great value! Don't hesitate!

Review submitted: September 5, 2012   Date of arrival: July 26, 2012

The Castle is a great getaway- clean, neat and off the beaten trail. Serenity of the waves crashing lull you to sleep from the carriage house or the suites. Near Volcanoes National Park and the lava viewing area in Kalapana off Rtes. 130/137. We stayed 2 weeks in the spacious Carriage House from 7/26 to 8/9/12. Hammock upstairs was beautiful, great KING bed and a twin in a loft. Entire house is open air.
We were greeted with fresh leis and local fruits. And a great surprise was a dozen organic eggs! Kitchen had everything needed to prepare meals, large refrigerator….
Innkeeper on the premise is knowledgeable of the area and how to get places or she can help you arrange tours/ gourmet meals.
If you are looking for a nice rural location with lots to do nearby (Kapoho tidepools, warm pools, black sand beaches, local farmers markets), this is it.
The Carriage House fit our needs and our budget. Do not hesitate to call! My sons and I enjoyed our 2 week stay and hated to leave.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with teenagers

Owners response: Mahalo for your kind comments! We are so happy you were happy!

Pardise Found in a Castle in Hawaii

Review submitted: April 6, 2011   Date of arrival: February 23, 2011

My 9th trip to the islands & mostly rentals. The Castle is the most unique! Much planning & expert craftsmanship went into this 'home!' John & Sheri are friendly, excellent hosts. Sheri is vibrant & on the go but makes her home, your home. Relaxing breakfast on your private lanai overlooking the ocean or out by the pool is wonderful. Walk out of your room (I had the Queen's room) & watch a breathtaking sunrise or walk across to the grassy palm tree laden park across the street & chill. You will not sleep better - beds are super comfy & with the slider open you can hear the tropical sounds & ocean to fall asleep to! The Castle is very private & with your own fridge & kitchen access you can't ask for more. The outdoor shower is private and heavenly!!! Sheri is right, just "jump on the plane" & everything else is at hand!

Sunlight on Water Dolphin Swim is fabulous, as was the helicopter tour of the volcano. The end of the road is access to a volcano tour and go the other way & you can drive the breathtaking Puna coast heading back toward Hilo. My advice as a frequent Hawaii visitor is, do not be a "tourist" and stay in a cookie cutter hotel; stay somewhere unique (The Castle) & live more like a local. You'll have the advantage of the owner 'on property' to answer questions, give directions, or even call up & make tour arrangements or recommendations for you if you like. The only downside is the distance you are from the major cities, if that is a downside. Me, I don't want to ever be in the middle of tourism-central, I much prefer my privacy & to go about my way independently & staying at the Castle allows you to do that. Likewise, it is the Big Island & it is impossible to be near everything like it is on smaller islands.
Finally, the Castle holds a secret that only a Castle'll have to stay there to find out what it is! Thanks so much Sheri & John!

Owners response: Wow, we am grateful and humble to learn how you felt about your visit with us! We so hope you will come back! Aloha and a hui ho. S&J

Great vacation

Our stay at the Castle In Hawaii was one of the best vacations we have ever had. Felt like a king in my castle. Sorry Sheri had to be out of town, but John was a wonderful host. Great view, and great swimming spots of all types near by. Lots to do. Will come back more than likely.
