Phoenix House is a small house that resembles a lighthouse more than a home, and the hosts, apart from accommodation, also offer detoxification of the spirit and body…
The tiny house with a view of the “sea” of a hardened lava is certainly high on a scale of unusual. It is located on the south side of the island, one of the most active volcanoes in Hawaii.
Kilauea volcano has a turbulent history of eruption that began in 1823, and often the release of the lava caused the growth of many endemic species. According to the beliefs of the islanders, Kilauea is home to the goddess of fire, lightning, wind and volcanoes.
Phoenix House is just four miles to the lava waterfall that dumps a ton of lava into the ocean each minute. From the outside, the house almost blends in with its surrounding. Its wood cladding was blacked using a Japanese charring technique called Shou Sugi Ban, which also helps preserve the wood.
This Unique, Off-Grid Tiny Home (450sqft) is fully furnished with a modern yet farmhouse ambiance. Housewife Jade says her accommodation is the perfect place to think about life, meditation and life changing.
From your window, you can see the plume of smoke where the lava meets the ocean creating the newest land on earth. Smoking Volcano, Glistening Ocean, and miles and miles of dramatic black lava fields are all part of your expansive view and elemental experience here.
Fully functional, the house comes with a kitchenette, bedroom loft, living area, and bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with utensils, drip coffee feature, small dinette table, propane stove top, and refrigerator. The bedroom loft, which you reach by a modest stairway, has a plush and cozy queen sized bed with big windows for a view of the ocean, and bedside lighting. The bathroom has a shower, small sink, and toilet.
The hot water heater for the shower is on demand. The living area has a couch and small desk in front of a window for reading, writing, and contemplation. There is a personal driveway with parking space.
Available to rent on Airbnb, the Phoenix House is perfect for those looking to experiment with the tiny home life. Off the grid, the home uses solar energy and rainwater collection to power your phone, camera, plus the home’s fan and shower. All this for $135 per night.
