A beautiful forty minute drive from Hilo, south into the Puna District, sits the unique Castle in Hawaii, overlooking the Pacific, just off the famous “Red Road” Highway 137 in the laid-back Pahoa area.
The Castle is only minutes away from champagne and warm ponds and tide pools where you can snorkel and/or soak, lush forests and lava tree park to explore, and a hidden black sand beach, feeding area to a pod of thirty or forty dolphins.
While the castle is home to your hosts, it is also an intimate private space for guests featuring custom furnishings, high thread count sheets, memory foam mattress, a romantic outdoor shower, and lanai where you can enjoy dining al fresco while watching whales pass by. Your suite is just steps to the pool and Jacuzzi with an amazing ocean view and the sounds of crashing waves lull you to sleep.
On a clear night the stars seem to drip from the sky, and you can see lava flows glowing in the distance. The fully stocked “breezeway” kitchen makes eating a breeze. The charming town of Pahoa is only 10 minutes away, with shops and world class restaurants in the quaint, historic downtown district.
Plus your hosts (who are also caterers/event coordinators in Southern California: www.GourmetCatering.com), make sure you don’t miss any of the area’s secrets or current happenings.
Their passion is to arrange a romantic dinner for you on your lanai, or a helicopter tour, stargazing at the world-famous Mauna Kea observatory, a lava tour by boat or on foot or whatever you want to do while in paradise. There are amazing bodywork therapists just minutes from the home for massage, yoga, acupuncture and much more.
The Castle in Hawaii is your home away from home, an ideal home base to explore the beauty of Hawaii Island, the “Big” Island.
