At the top of Discovery Harbour you may find this isolated and quiet refuge where you can disconnect from the world. The house has internet but no television. The two bedrooms are cozy and comfortable but the lanai just outside is really exceptional. The location is great for little day trips, such as to the Volcano National Park and the Whittington Park. A typical Hawaiian sandy beach (Punaluu) is only 10 minutes away and on the road you can stop on the local bakery for delicious treats. You can also visit the sea caves and watch the cliff divers.
