1993 Off-Grid Yurt For Sale W/Cave on 2 Acres Hawaii $179,000
Tucked away approximately 500 feet down a tropically landscaped driveway is this lovely, 30 foot yurt from Pacific Yurts. Tastefully furnished with bamboo furniture from Bali, this is your off grid oasis. There is a separate, lava rock shower house just down from the spacious back lanai. The 2 acres are landscaped with many varieties of exotic palms, rainbow eucalyptus, anthuriums in dozens of different shapes and colors, red and torch ginger, carnivorous plants, native koa trees, citrus and many different varieties of orchids planted amongst the ohia trees. Located just off the back porch is an entrance to a natural lava tube.
In 2009, the seller intended to install a cesspool to convert the composting toilet to a conventional one, however the machine operator got about 6 feet down and had opened up a skylight into a deep, lava cavern. Exploration of the cavern uncovered many forms of stalagmites and stalactites that had naturally formed over many many years of water seeping through the porous rock above and creating these incredible lava rock formations dripping down from the ceiling and piling up on the ground below like hot wax dripping from a candle. After discovery of this beautiful lava tube, the seller elected to build a rock wall surrounding the opening to preserve this pristine natural space. The yurt is still serviced by a composting toilet.
