Description of the Kailua-Kona vacation cabin rental
Lova Lava Land Eco-Resort is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in staying in creative off-the-grid accommodations! Our 3 acre property is designed as a fun learning experience in life on an old lava field - full of beautiful shady ohia trees, vast ocean views (of the southernmost point in the USA), and creative communal areas great for socializing and relaxing.

We offer a beautifully decorated yurt and several renovated Volkswagen camper buses as sleeping accommodations. For communal use is a bamboo and lava decorated compost toilet, an outdoor shower built out of lava rock from the premises, a gazebo-covered communal kitchen, and a lava rock grill with picnic table.

Take our self-guided walking tour of the property to learn about local flora, fauna, and how we have created comfortable off-the-grid systems. Relax in your private area on the property - each accommodation has its own area complete with either a hammock, picnic table, or swing. Whether you are looking for an adventure vacation in paradise, an education in eco-life, or a longer term place to explore the island from, we can promise this isn't just a place to stay - it's an experience!


1. Pele's Paradise Yurt: $55/night with significant weekly & monthly discounts. This beautifully designed 'round house' offers a skylight, ocean views, a full sized bed, closet, bean bag chair, and much more! If you haven't tried sleeping in a yurt before, you'll never go back!

2. Volkswagen Camper Bus Sleeping: $35/night with significant weekly & monthly discounts. This is also a fun and comfortable experience for those that reminisce about the 60's, those that wish it were still the 60's, or those that are just curious and want a fun alternative to normal sleeping arrangements. We've rescued & renovated these buses - although they are NON-operational. Each bus has storage space and closets and is priced the same, although each has its own character and even name!


Our philosophy is "roughing it smoothly." Expect something like camping but be pleasantly surprised when we offer MUCH MORE! For communal use is a compost tiolet, outdoor lava rock shower, communal kitchen with utensils/pots to borrow, lava rock grill, and gazebo-covered lounging area with couch and chairs.

Area Information
Ocean View is a colorful small community 45 miles from Kailua-Kona and 80 miles from Hilo. We've provided a detailed self-tour guide of the area for you, including directions to the MANY beaches in the area (including 2 black sand beaches), the southernmost point in the USA, several state parks, Volcano National Park, local markets, and much more.

We are located between the 77 and 78 mile marker off Highway 11, in the city of Ocean View on the Big Island of Hawaii. Turn towards the ocean on Prince Kuhio Blvd from the main Highway 11 (by the gas station). Make your first left on Bougainvillea then your first right on Kahili Blvd. Our driveway is the first on the right (red road - look for the 92-1237 address sign on the tree).

What an amazing find! I couldn't beleive that a place like this really exists. Cheap, beautiful, and super eco-friendly. Easy on your wallet, easy on the environment, and heavy on atmosphere. Solar-powered VW bus accomodations! Walk across a lunarscape lava field to a deserted beach that's out of a dream. To top it off, the owners are really great people who love to talk to people about Hawaii and their eco-efforts on the Big Island. Don't miss it!

I always have liked lava. It is so beautiful. This is the most beautiful lavalandscape in the world, I think. Together with the big, beautiful Ohia-threes it is just fantastic!
