About Our Home
ENJOY A STAY IN OHANA KAHUNA CABIN AND BE A PART OF OUR SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY IN THE HAWAII RAINFOREST! CABIN: Ohana Kahuna is the most comfortable eco-lodging on the Hedonisia Hawaii property. It has a King Sized Canopy Bed. The bedframe is a 19th century antique. And, from your bed, when you open the door, you are treated to a glorious sweeping ocean view! Ohana Kahuna also has electricity and WiFi access. Like all our lodgings, Ohana Kahuna has been created out of mostly recycled and renewable materials. Hedonisia Hawaii is a sustainable community rainforest retreat where we offer affordable ecofriendly lodgings in Hawaii.

(Kitchen, Bathroom and Laundry are shared with the community, shared facilities are cleaned by community members and volunteers.)
Special Considerations
The island of Hawaii is divided into two basic areas; the West where it is dry, great beaches and lots of "tourist" stuff very much like Waikiki. It is about three hours drive away. However, if you are looking for a different Hawaii that is more laid back and easygoing then the east side of the Big Island is for you! The Puna region is lush and green Hawaiian rainforest. Check out our website to see some of the natural attractions in the area: (link replaced)
Pahoa is known for it's great restaurants! Some of the most popular ones include Kaleo's (Hawaiian fusion), Ning's (Thai), Sukothai (Thai), Paolo's (Italian), Luquins (Mexican), Mighty Sushi and several others.
Staying at Hedonisia has it's own nightlife! Also, there is a Hawaiian evening market several nights of the week.
Hawaii is set up for tourists so there are plenty of shopping opportunities on the island.
There is actually a small museum in Pahoa and a few more in Hilo. Hilo also has several galleries right along the ocean front.
Most attractions and living options here are outdoors!
The top thing people come for is the volcano! There is the volcano national park, the lava flow, the black sand beaches, ect. We are right near to both the Lava Tree State Park and the volcanic heated warm ponds.
Special Events
There are many weekly events including several markets like the hippie style SPACE market, Uncle Robert's Hawaiian night market and the large Sunday morning craft market as well as all the farmer's markets.
Since we are a community you will have the unique opportunity to get to know the people staying here on the property.
