Holiday Rental House
A peaceful place for deep quiet contemplation located on a natural, dramatic, stark lava landscape. Placed at a 4000 ft elevation and on a 80 years old lava flow, the cottage simple set up presents a panoramic vista of the southernmost point of the Hawaiian islands and the USA. The Space: The quietness, peacefulness, and marvelous ocean view makes this cottage absolutely unique. It is perfect for those with a taste for introspection, contemplation and self inquiry. Without any noise, distractions, and little if any human interaction, you can indeed unwind, relax, breathe deeply, contemplate and take in the serenity and peace of the openness and expansiveness of the sky and space that this spot somehow makes it so available. The Mauna Loa life and power is undeniable as one looks around fr...A peaceful place for deep quiet contemplation located on a natural, dramatic, stark lava landscape.
