Overview

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.

4 stars!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at The Gluten Free House. We liked the set up. It is one bedroom with a queen bed and bunk bed. The bedroom is on the bottom floor of the house and opens to an open air kitchen and dining/sitting area. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the open air dining/sitting area for breakfast. The breakfasts were delicious - lots of new (to us) fruit! Sandy allowed us to use her coolers and chairs for our daily excursions. We had use of the open air kitchen as well. The only negative was some boxes and storage items in the open air dining room. Overall we loved it!

Good. Loved the Big Island

  • 3 of 5

Breakfast was great ! Great hospitality.

Spacious clean room. This place is very far from volcano national park and hour away from Kona. But we still took day trips and managed to see everything we wanted to..

The Island experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Gluten Free house for 8 days and had a great time. Sandy is a wonderful host, the room is large, clean and airy. We always looked forward to starting our day with fresh, hot breakfast provided by Sandy. Sandy has incredible knowledge about the island and is happy to share it and has organized it in a great folder with information on rare gems around the island.

Highly recommended, we will be back one day.

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.

Location

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.
