Aloha and welcome to Nani Kalapana! Nani means beautiful in Hawaiian and that is a direct reflection of this charming and comfortable downstairs studio apartment. This clean and lovely space has the advantage of being less than a 5 minute walk to Uncle Robert's Awa Bar and Market as well as a short walk to the Kaimu Black Sand Beach. We are a 10 minute drive to the parking for lava viewing. Enjoy ocean breezes and a spacious yard. We would love to host your visit to the heart of true Hawaii!
We are less than half a mile from the ocean. The yard is full of coconut, banana, and mango trees. The view is a beautiful contrast of lush greenery and black lava rock. The studio apartment has a private entrance and is fully equipped. The bed is queen sized and very comfortable. In addition to a full private bath, there is an outdoor shower for rinsing off after sandy beach days! We have county water. You will have a truly charming space to adventure from!

Interaction with guests
I am happy to point you to all the best local spots! My 4 year old son and I live upstairs. You may hear us playing from time to time. We also play in the yard some afternoons. We enjoy meeting new people from all backgrounds. I am around if you need anything, but you will have plenty of privacy.
Quiet time after 10pm except on Wednesday.
I have been a Big Island resident for ten years after moving from the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains near Asheville, North Carolina. I enjoy yoga, swimming, dancing, healthy eating, and being a Mom. Beach adventures to the best spots in Lower Puna occupy my free time. I believe in working hard to play harder. You will find me selling soap and other goodies at Uncle Robert's Market on Wednesday night. I delight in meeting my Airbnb guests. I would love to facilitate your adventure to Kalapana and share my knowledge of the area with you!
