View Kīlauea Volcano through the back windows, and hike on old lava flow right from the door, passing the baby coconut trees. Visit the newest black-sand beach in the world Pohoiki Beach Park, Kehena black-sand beach, majestic waterfalls, and other natural sights, while nearby Uncle Robert's market place offers a fun night out every Wednesday. The town of Pahoa is only 15-20 minutes away where you can enjoy various restaurants and shopping, especially Kaleo's for a wonderful dinner out.

They say, “when you do what you love, you never work a day in your life.” Managing property and traveling through America’s coastal region has armed me with the experience necessary to provide you with a quality place to stay in some of the country’s most stunning locations. I have been a property manager and owner for 18 years. 30 years ago, I made Lantana my home, and I am proud to say it is still the great coastal town that I grew up loving. Whether you enjoy going to the beach, boating, shopping, or sampling the local fare, Lantana is the place to go - and stay a little while. I have also spent a lot of time on the Big Island of Hawaii, and like most, remain fascinated by all that it has to offer. This was why I took on the adventure of converting shipping containers into off-grid vacation bungalows on the lava fields of Kalapana. It was an adventure I will never forget. These lush interiors are situated directly on the lava field and under a night sky lit by thousands of twinkling stars. With the ocean as your view and Kilauea volcano in your backyard, it is truly a once in a lifetime experience you won’t soon forget. A hui hou, Ron Living a Joyful & Blessed Life
