  • Description

    Description

    Eleven years ago, I acquired some land on the 1990 lava flow in Kalapana and built a beautiful sanctuary to be a home for myself as well as a few other free-spirited people like myself. I consider it to be my dream home, the nicest place I've ever lived. The climate is delightful and the scenery stunning. A pristine undeveloped roadless strip of lush coastline is just 10 minute walk away. The house is completely off the grid, with plenty of electricity and hot water provided by the sun year-round, and plenty of pure water from a large roof area with the sporadic rain showers. My only monthly bill comes from the reliable wireless internet service provider we have here.

    Puna is a thriving and eclectic community of artistic and creative alternative-minded folks. I enjoy many fun events nearby, such as ecstatic dances, drum jams, and "playshops".

    I have been vegan for many years and I maintain a vegetarian household. I do not mind if others eat dairy or eggs here though. Nonsmokers only please.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If living off the grid with a self-sufficient lifestyle appeals to you, there is a lot to be learned by living here. I love to share what I've learned about living off the grid and about my life experience living an alternative lifestyle. I am part of a tribe of heart-centered people, and here in Puna the culture I most enjoy is what I call "hippie culture." "Hippie" is my acronym for a Highly Intelligent Person Pursuing Inner Enlightenment.

    I'm looking to share this home with someone who can help me with house maintenance. No experience necessary, but carpentry skills would be a big plus, as some minor repairs are occasionally needed due to weathering. I would also love to have help with sprucing up the home a bit, with more art and furnishings. If you have any skills in the healing arts, that would also be a big plus.

    Accommodation

    I offer a very quiet furnished room with private bathroom. The kitchen is sometimes shared but mostly private. The kitchen includes a cooktop stove, chest refrigerator, and great-tasting purified rainwater. There is plenty of AC power 24 hours a day for lights and laptop computers, with internet via WIFI or ethernet. The common room or "living room" is a great space for doing yoga, with a 6 ft. x 10 ft. area of martial arts puzzle mats with yoga swing.

    What else ...

    I have a bicycle available for your use and I welcome anyone to ride with me in my car to town, to the beach, or to social events when I am going. There is also a beautiful, pristine, lush, roadless and uninhabited strip of coastline just 10 minutes' walk from the house (see photo). On Sundays, there are weekly gatherings with Ecstatic Dance in the morning, then a drum circle at the nude beach nearby, followed by another drum circle on the Seaview Lawn where there are also slack lines, fire spinners, acro yoga, frisbee, music jams, and potlucks happening. We call it Sunday Fun Day!
