Writers & Creatives in Residence! Phase 1 – Accepting reservations from November 2019. We own nearby property, which, and that was not destroyed by the eruption, we will start afresh with Hedonisia Solitude.
Our first eco-hut will be rustic, with only minimal amenities. However, it will be located in a lovely forest of Strawberry Guava trees. Hedonisia Solitude offers scaled-down Guest, Intern and Volunteer programs for those who wish to do Heart, Body or Mind work to enjoy a discounted stay. Phase 1 is ideal for the creative person or couple who wants to enjoy affordable solitude in Hawai!
Other Hedonisia Post Volcano Lodgings & Plans
1) Satellite Hedonisia Communities
We are negotiating with owners of three properties in the Puna area to offer variations of the Hedonisia volunteer, intern, and guest programs. One property is called Hedonisia Kunihi Nui and is located near steam vents from the recent eruption. And the other is tentatively called Hedonisia Lava Lookout as it has amazing views of the ocean and recent lava flow.
2) Rebuild on the original land
It will take time as roads are built again through the vast area that was covered by lava. Of the nearly 4 acres that comprised Hedonisia, about 3 acres are covered in lava and is 50 – 120 feet higher than before. However, there remains a large patch of green of about 1-acre in a beautiful C-shaped ‘kipuka’. Our new green oasis is approximately 1 acre in size. It would allow us to still grow plants for our agriculture needs.
In addition to rebuilding a community space, we are also setting aside 4 plots of land on the property for investors to build a tiny home. That way they have a place to stay in the community for part of the year and a small income from their place when they are away.
