About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This is one bedroom with a private bath. It is on ground level, we live upstairs. The room is very large and has a king size bed and bunk beds with a sitting area.

We are in a secluded area so it is peaceful, but we are close enough to the highway that getting to all the island activities will be easy. Breakfast is included and will be made specifically for your needs and desires. I bake gluten and dairy free and can also make vegan selections.

You will have access to Dish TV, internet, hair dryer, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, refrigerator, washer and dryer.

We will be happy to suggest any of the wonderful activities that are available around the island.

We are located about half way between Kailua Kona and Hilo. Kula Kai Caverns, South Point, Punaluu Bakery, Green Sand Beach, Black Sand Beach, and Volcanoes National Park are all relatively close.

About Sandy Stovall

Over 40 years ago I was diagnosed allergic to wheat, dairy, and onion. Now it is difficult to find gluten free foods, back then it was almost impossible.

I taught school on the mainland for 35 years. The last 13 year were spent teaching science lab to 4th and 5th graders. Many of the items on this island were topics I taught.

Sandy Stovall purchased this house in 2013

Why Sandy Stovall chose Ka'u District

This home gave me a chance to share the gluten free foods that I have learned to create.

Great accommodations and hostess in Oceanview!

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable accommodations. Nice separate entry to a large room with comfortable king bed and private bath. There are even available kitchen facilities right outside the room. Sandy is a wonderful hostess, is very flexible and provides gourmet breakfasts! We enjoyed being on the southern end of the island for shorter travel times to places like South Point, Green Sand Beach, Black Sand Beach and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

This was a clean rental, great bed, big shower stall (!) and Sandy provided fabulous breakfasts (!!!). She was a congenial hostess, willing and able to help when we had trouble with the TV remote. The property is somewhat remote, but convenient to Volcano Nat'l park. We were pleased with local eatery Mehe's and nearby villages. We would definitely stay again.

Cozy home, wonderful breakfast!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Gluten Free House. The location was perfect for us to explore Captain Cook and snorkel at Two Steps, drive down to South Point, Green Sands, and see the turtles at Punalu'u. The room was spacious and very comfortable for the four of us. We slept so well every night! Sandy and Andy were lovely hosts, and we are so grateful for the generous, delicious and thoughtfully prepared gluten-free, vegan breakfasts they served every morning. Mahalo for a wonderful stay! We hope to return one day.

You gotta stay here if you are gluten free!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 11 night stay at the Gluten Free House on the Big Island of Hawaii in March, 2016. It is on the southern end of the island, about half way between Hilo and Kona. We thought it would be perfect, as it would allow us to explore the whole area, both ways, while staying in one spot. Do realize, though, that you have to drive two-lane windy and crooked roads to get from here to popular tourist destinations and beaches. If you are alright with that, and if you want seclusion and quiet, then stay here. The location did make us get out and explore the island, however. If we had stayed at a city location, we would have never driven this far out, or discovered all the "local" beaches and sights.

The Aloha room was great; nice big bed and bathroom, along with outdoor kitchen and washer and dryer. Sandy and her husband were always helpful with information and directions. The breakfast she served every day was over-the-top, with a different PERFECT GF bread and tropical fruit each time, in addition to the meat and eggs. Her homemade syrup is delicious! Breakfast held us over until about 2, when we finally grabbed a light lunch. The breakfast alone is a good reason to stay here, gluten free or not.

Sandy has a notebook full of places to see and eat on the south side. I would note that there aren't a lot of places to eat out around here, and not a lot of gluten free choices. If you are planning on romantic evenings with cocktails and gourmet meals, all dressed up, well, there aren't many close places to go! You will have to travel to the Kona or Hilo area to find these. You can, however, cook your own meals, with groceries available at a store a few miles down the road. Some gluten free items available there, also. Everything in the kitchen that you might need to prepare your own meals. And Sandy does the dishes!

The Gluten Free House is a great value, especially with the outstanding breakfasts and comfy room. We would highly recommend it.

Car: necessary

Since we are rural, it takes longer than 15 minutes to get to many of the attractions, but included in the available activities are hiking, deep sea fishing, parasailing, surfing, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, jet skiing, submarine ride, horseback riding, and atv riding. There are chocolate farm tours, mushroom farm tours, macadamia farm tours, a zoo, botanical gardens, water falls, and farmer's markets just to name a few of the things to do.
