DRIVING DIRECTIONS FROM HILO AIRPORT:
Coming out of the airport, turn LEFT onto Kanoelehua St. (HWY 11) South, in the direction of Volcano and Kea'au,
and go about 4 miles, get in the left lane, then into one of the two left-turn lanes for HWY 130.
Take a LEFT on HWY 130 (Pahoa-Kalapana Road), and drive for about 13 miles (passing Pahoa Village about mid-way
to your right, which, by the way is the last stop for groceries, gas, restaurants, banks, post office, etc.)
You're heading for Kalapana, which you'll know is coming up when you get to the bottom of the hill, after a long,
gradual descent to sea level. At the bottom of the hill, when the highway curves away to the right, take a LEFT
(which is immediately followed by a sharp jog to the RIGHT), and drive about 300 ft. to the "T" intersection,
with the lava field and the ocean dead ahead.
Turn LEFT on HWY 137 (Kapoho-Kalapana Road) in the direction of Kapoho, and drive just over 3 miles along the shore
(with the sea on your right). When you pass through Kehena (a neighborhood with houses and coconut trees) and the
19-mile marker (at the beach parking lot), you'll know you're getting close to the turn for our house.
Turn LEFT on Oliana Drive (there’s a white, modern house at the corner, by the same architect as our house), and then
take the first RIGHT on Punakai St.
At the end of the street, turn LEFT onto Kipuka St. (our street) and head up the hill to the second-to-last house on
the right (it's very boxy and modern-looking—hard to miss.) Park in the driveway, if there's an empty spot, or on the street (directly across the street from the house may be easier,
to avoid opening your car door into the stone wall.)
