Punana Kiowai - House of Comfort by the Pond is located in Sunny Kapoho.
Alas, our beautiful neighborhood and Hawaiian cottage has burned and now has been inundated with lava. We thank all of our guests for the beautiful reviews and will miss interacting with such wonderful guests, full of awe and appreciation for the vacation spot created by the lava pools and the cottage experience created by our team of caretakers.
This site will close down on July 23, 2018, to the public. If you have any additional correspondence, please contact me at PunanaKiowai.Kapoho@comcast.net. That email address will be active until December 1, 2018.
Mahalo to all.
