Great check-in experience94% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

This spacious Room at the Top in Paradise with Sweeping Ocean views has its own lanai with French doors. Watch the exquisite sunrise from the bed. Papaaloa is a full 1-1/4 hours away from the volcano, and the trade winds blow in the opposite direction, so the air quality is just fine, and there are no negative effects from the volcanic activity that is on less than 1/4 of the island.

Response from Joy:
Thanks for mentioning my sense of smell, Janice. I believe I am hypersensitive to certain chemical aromas, so I ask my guests not to use Tide, for example, and just to use the detergent that I provide, which is natural. Also if you use strong-smelling perfumes or shampoo, that could be a problem for me.

My wife, nine year old daughter and I stayed at Joy's for a month and loved it. For us, the location was perfect. Papaaloa Country Store & Cafe was close enough that we regularly walked there for grocery shopping, to have coffee, eat dinner, have drinks and listen to good live mu…

Joy’s place is amazing-beautiful views and a friendly neighborhood. Mornings are great when you get to step out on that balcony and look at the sea. There is also a great restaurant within walking distance that I found by accident!

Hi - I enjoy sharing my space and getting to know new people. I just bought this house in May of 2013 and I had so much fun remodeling it and making it beautiful and inviting. I've written 16 books on self-healing (with Random House and Bantam) and I work occasionally as a coun…
