Why not make your vacation really special by staying at a property so remarkable that it made the front page of The New York Times!
On June 30, 2005, POHAKUNANI, The Robert Trickey House, appeared on both the front page and inside the home section of The NY Times, having also just been featured in the June issue of California Home & Design magazine. The pictures for both articles were chosen from among those in the book "Island Homes", published by Rizzoli, which also appeared in "Minimalist Houses" by Taschen.
Pohakunani means "The Beautiful Rocks" in Hawaiian, and when you see the sleek simplicity of the modern architecture, perched on the edge of a vast lava field, framing stunning views that sweep from the rift zone's ridge down to the ocean, you'll understand the name: The sea of rocks that border the property is gorgeous in an other-worldly way.
If you're a fan of exceptional design and the magnificence of nature, and like to travel with a bit of style, you'll love staying in the Guest House at Pohakunani. Many of our guests find themselves just hanging around the pool for days on end, soaking in the quiet, relaxing beauty of the place (and most express the wish that they didn't have to leave!)
At 850 square feet, the studio unit is spacious enough to feel like a real home, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors (opening onto the unit's own lanai) seem to extend the space, capturing the lovely garden and waterfall like a gorgeous painting. If you haven't stayed in this area before, you'll be amazed to find such a truly heavenly and unspoiled part of "Old Hawaii" as this Lush and green, yet drier and better for outdoor activities than other parts of Puna. You'll see why residents think of it as "our little secret".
