Location Details

You'll love the private location of this home, where there is no traffic noise and nothing but peaceful surroundings of nature. To continue immersing yourself in the island's gorgeous scenery, take a 6-minute drive to the Hawaii Tropical Botanic Garden, home to over 1,800 species of tropical plants!

If you're in the mood for a hike, make your way to ʻAkaka Falls State Park with a path that leads to a breathtaking waterfall! Closer to the home is Onomea Bay Trail, as well as Honoli'i Beach Park known as a prime surfing spot.

Say aloha to Hilo just 10 minutes down the coast, where you can book sightseeing tours, visit museums, and relax on one of the many beaches. While you're in the area, be sure to check out Rainbow Falls before grabbing some food from Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill! Casual and fine dining can also be found all over town.

  • This home was little dated. Snorkeling gear was listed, but not there. The beds not great.


    Our stay was pretty seamless.

    The beds were fairly uncomfortable though.

    The hot water in the house was barely warm. We were disappointed the snorkeling gear was not there. We had to go and buy some.

    Over all, we didn’t have any real problems and had what we needed.

  • Great Place!!


    Very clean and nice! The house felt like we was in the woods but close to the downtown Hilo so we really liked that! House was spotless and a very comfortable for our family of 7. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

    Great property! Super clean, beautifully remodeled, spacious yard cause it?s located at end of lane. The owners took such good care of us, even accommodating a request that they didn?t have to. Definitely my go-to spot for anytime I visit Hilo!
