Modern Living In An Ancient Landscape

On an island of both fierce and gentle contrasts that took millions of years to mold, AIA award-winning architect Craig Steely has crafted a home in harmony with both.

Originally designed in 1999 by architect Robert Trickey, and subsequently remodeled by Steely, this holiday home in Hawaii launched the first of seven others designed as “Lava Flow” houses. 

Co-existing within the dramatic landscape, California and Hawaii based Steely embraces the stark realities of the environment while focusing on developing modern, livable design rooted in its context.

Featured in the NY Times, California Home & Design, Island Living and Minimalist Houses, the home is part of a trend of contemporary home design on the island.

The L-shaped structure is crafted with interlocking volumes that are repeated throughout, with luminous, open-plan glass walls that frame the landscape.

With stunning views that sweep from the upper rift zone down to the glimmering Pacific, the juxtaposition between the static lines and the rugged, wild landscape is an artful collision of order and chaos, that’s both timeless and powerful. 

There’s also a separate studio on the property available for rent from BoutiqueHomes here.

Description

Set within the ancient and rugged lava flows on the southern most regions of the Big Island, this holiday home for rent in Hawaii is a modernist tour-de-force. 

Originally designed by Robert Trickey, who launched the career of AIA award-winning architect Craig Steely the home is surrounded by jagged lava formations interspersed within the jungle.

Constructed with more than eighty percent of the materials sourced locally, the house frames ocean views from oversized rooms, soaring ceilings and walls of glass. 

Entering from a bridge that covers the pool onto a large lanai, the glass enclosed living room sits on the south of the lanai with uninterrupted views over the lava fields. 

Directly off of the lanai are the sitting room, the kitchen, the dining room and a guest room. A cantilevered floating stairway of mango wood leads to the upstairs master bedroom, bath, and study. With three additional double bedrooms, the house can accommodate up to eleven guests.

The pool wraps around the house providing reflection of both the architecture and the environment, with relaxing and inspiring spots settled within it’s ancient and ever-evolving landscape.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, Smart cable TV with Netflix, SONOS stereo system with Spotify, Apple Music capabilities, kitchen and bath amenities, laundry facilities, private parking.  

AROUND

Pristine beaches, lush jungle, snow capped peaks and lunar deserts, this is an island of contrast and natural wonder with eleven out of the world’s thirteen known climates. The house is in the quiet neighborhood of Puna Beach Palisades neighboring historic Kalapana, full of exotic natural beauty (including the neighboring clothing-optional Kehena beach!), hot springs, caves, lava viewing, and Uncle Robert’s famous Wednesday night market. 

The bustling resort town of Kona and The Queen’s Highway coastline takes you past the dazzling five star resorts and some of the islands best beaches including Hapuna and Mauna Kea, through Captain Cook, City of Refuge and Kealakakua to the north east. Many of the provincial turn of the century homesteads and remnants of early plantations and coffee processing plants are scattered along the road as a lasting reminder of Big Island life and identity. Historic Hilo can be reached in just under an hour.

North Kohala and Waiamea  are a couple of hours north with a charming and eclectic mix of historic plantation style towns of art galleries, cafes and the stunning Pololu Valley at road’s end. It’s a great stopover on your way to Honokaa and the magnificent Waipio Valley in the Hamakua district.  Head up the Belt Road and into the treetop rainforests of Volcanoes National Park at Mauna Loa or the sometimes snow covered landscape of Mauna Kea where you truly can ski or snowboard in paradise.

    Tom’s place is a dream house! The location is epic !! The place is designed so nicely and also decorated so elegantly. Its a very special place! we loved every minute of it. It was clean and comfortable and loved every detail. It had everything we could ask for and more and close by to some amazing sights to see like the black sand beach where we saw dolphins! we enjoyed BBQing and swimming in the pool. the lava surrounding the place made it feel so special and unique. our stay here was unforgettable! Mahalo!

    Gorgeous house in a spectacular setting! It’s in a beautiful, but remote, part of the island, very close to some great site seeing and activities. Hiking to the active lava by the volcano is not to be missed. Has a black sand beach about 10 minute walk from the house, however you have to hike down a cliff to get the beach so make sure you wear hiking and not flip flops like I did. Our time in the house was magical and we enjoyed the great amenities of the property.

    Great location just minutes away from Black Sand Beach by walk. It is also close to many local sightseeing areas, such as Kapoho tide pools where you can snorkel, hot ponds, lava viewing point which is one of the amazing thing I did in my life and Pahoa village. The house is spectacular with a pool across lava and it is extremely clean and stylish. Unforgettable experience, I strongly suggest this place. Also Tom and Yvette was responsive to all questions quickly.

    It was easy to communicate with our hosts and offered help whenever we needed it. The home is beautiful! The neighborhood is lush, close to the beach and very remote.
