Overview

About the property

From the moment you enter the 1/2 acre property, a sense of tropical wonder takes hold of you. Orchids grow off of the many tall palm trees that follow the winding path of the paved driveway. Exotic pink palms, blooming plumeria, and hibiscus with multi-colored gigantic flowers await, with huge Norfolk pines towering over this beautifully landscaped property.

At the front entrance to the home are koa and mango wood double doors which lead to a 1500sq foot outdoor centre courtyard, made of wood decking.

The deck is surrounded by the home on 3 sides, leaving one side open to view the palms and trees on the neighbors property, which has no home on it, and therefore complete privacy. A sliding glass door opens from each of the three main floor bedrooms onto this tropical paradise, with several large potted plants and trees. One of these bedrooms has its own area separate from the rest of the house, with its own full bathroom. Every bedroom also has large windows with custom louver window coverings, Martha Stewart bedding, and ceiling fans. And yes, the courtyard does boast a new 6 person 110 jet hot tub to relax even the most uptight one in the group. The private entrance to each bedroom off the courtyard gives a 'hotel-like' feel, perfect for a couples holiday retreat, or for a family with kids.

The ocean front view is breath taking. You cannot be closer to feel the raw power and energy of the bluest ocean, surrounded by smooth black lava cliffs. On this property, the lava has natural ledges allowing you to walk down to near the water's edge, as the waves roll and crash onto the rocky cliffs.

Try fishing off shore, explore the lava coastlines , or just sit on the natural lava rock chairs and watch the turtles right in front of you everyday, as they feed and tumble in the rolling waves. (If you catch one of the numerous whales that come by regularly in season, it's catch and release only!) Dolphins can also be seen throughout the year.

The ocean view is prevalent in almost every room in the house. The great room has full wall glass windows and sliding glass doors on both sides, allowing you to see the ocean view from the courtyard as you look through the great room.

The kitchen is very large, with koa wood cabinets with granite counter tops, and a large center island. The dining table seats 8 easily, and both the kitchen and dining area have spectacular ocean front views, making time in the kitchen actually a pleasure.

The master bedroom has perhaps the best views of all, with a private balcony and sitting area surrounded by windows and three glass sliding doors. If the sounds of the ocean don't lull you into the best sleep of your life, then you really do need a vacation!

Morning sunrise is worth getting up for, especially when Kona coffee is waiting for you. Evening always cools off nicely, allowing you to sleep comfortably as you hear the waves and feel the ocean breeze.

The Hilo side of the Big Island offers the most natural beauty, the REAL HAWAII, from water falls and rainforests, to active volcanoes, ocean tidal pools, natural hot springs, great restaurants in Pahoa hippy town, and much more, all just a short drive away.

This home will give you the privacy you expect, the excitement of the Pacific Ocean in the raw, and a close up view of the ocean's amazing creatures.

Do not pass by this incredible vacation home opportunity!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect, exactly what we were looking for. Gorgeous views, quiet, spacious, and in a great location to venture out to multiple areas on the island. No issues with check in/out, very easy. The deposit is quite pricey, but was returned in a reasonable amount of time. Make sure you stock up on food, there really isn't anything close by, and Hilo is a good 30 minute trip. Would definitely recommend this property.

Picturesque Ocean Abode

  • 5 of 5

The first word that came to my mind when I walked through this wonderful little home was "scenic". Between the tasteful decor and the breathtaking view, I was thoroughly pleased with the overall aesthetics. My favorite part was walking out to where the waves crashed against the lava rock shore. It was honestly spectacular and very peaceful and I spent more than a few hours watching and listening. Inside, the property was also quite nice. All bedrooms had ample room with very nice showers/bathrooms. Although I did not soak in the hot tub, my family said it was rather restful. Also, the owner is very helpful and responsive to questions. All in all, it was an excellent choice for a vacation spot.

Great place.

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family just spent two fantastic weeks at your house and we loved it. As in all rental houses, it takes a bit of getting used to in order to know which buttons to push to get this light and that fan, etc working, and discovering where all the different pots and pans are in the kitchen. But I think it was the easiest to feel at home in that we have used. Except for our grandson, none of us spent any time in the living room…he loved the huge TV of course. The rest of us spent our time on the deep lanais where we could enjoy the ocean breezes and hear the roar of the waves pounding the cliffs. The house is situated close to Hilo but far enough away to feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. It was 30 minutes or less to any place we wanted to see on the Hilo side of the island. The third day we were there, we saw whales at a distance in front of the house and our daughter got pictures of them breaching and sounding. Later she saw an orca and took a picture of its distinctive marks. We saw sea turtles every day when we went out on the cliffs. It was more than we expected to see. Loved the tide pools and the walk along the path (ala kai). It was truly an enjoyable and relaxing visit. The owners were very prompt about answering emails and requests to make our stay more memorable. We will be staying here again.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

I booked this for a group of 8, ranging in age from 3 to 70-something, and everyone loved this house. The view is amazing, the sounds at night are like a relaxation CD but better, the amenities are great, and the location is handy for trips to Volcano National Park, waterfalls, etc.

We had a chance to use most of the stuff there including the hot tub, the grill, the outdoor table, washer/dryer, coffee grinder and maker, dishwasher, toaster oven, range, and oven and everything worked great. Additionally Dee was immediately available to answer a quick question we had on the jacuzzi.

We were sad to have to go and hope to return someday.

Beautiful, Peaceful Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful rental house for several people to stay with private rooms and a lovely shared space. The views from the lanai are simply gorgeous. Great location to visit Volcano National Park and lava viewing. We loved staying at this peaceful, tranquil home away from home.
