Hilo condo description

Enjoy the ocean breeze and sounds of the waves lulling you to sleep at our beautiful newly remodeled oceanfront retreat. With views off your lanai and Master bedroom, sleep well and wake up to an invigorating morning swim with the turtles.

This unit is completely furnished with a queen size bed in each bedroom and a complete kitchen. It’s a very convenient location, just 4 miles from the heart of Hilo town, the famous Farmer's Market and water activities on Hilo Bay. Experience a gorgeous view of the whole bay from Coconut Island while splashing and playing in the sandy coves surrounding the small island. Take time to get acquainted with the spirit of Hilo, you'll want to come back again and again. Weather is mild all year long with a range between the lower 70's and the low 80's. The beauty of Hilo would not exist if not for a little rain, usually early mornings and evenings. Enjoy our Rainbows and Waterfalls, but remember we wouldn't have them without the showers. The snow that peaks the mountain in January and February adds to this beautiful town of Hilo. Only 30 minute drive to Volcanoes national park, to enjoy the breathtaking views of the constantly active volcano, Kilauea. Visit the Hilo Coffee Mill and Atkatsuka Orchid Farm on the way. Viewing places give you a chance to see the lava flow, for which you can contact the National park for updates.

Hilo Seaside Restaurant is just across the street, serving all the local fish and freshly farmed trout. Bicycle or walk the ocean stretch and stop at any of the swimming spots or tide pools along the way. Just a short walk from Richardson's Beach, where you'll find some of the best snorkeling around offering plenty of live reefs and interesting reef fish to explore.

This 'Ocean stretch' is perfect for morning walks, jogging or biking. You'll enjoy the exercise available at this condominium location.

                  Car: Recommended

                  Hilo town is the ultimate relaxation and cultural experience, where else can you visit the farmer's market, view an active volcano, climb the summit of 13,000 feet Mauna Kea to the snow and paddle your own canoe? All in a day, well, maybe not, but you can try. It is all here and much, much more. If you want clean air and clean water, you will find it here. Our night life is not booked as you would find in the big city, but then again, do you care? Our day life certainly is active and after years, you still have not done it all. Take a trip to the Onomea Botanical Gardens, the Volcano Winery, the fabulous Akaka Water Falls, or snorkel outside your door, they are all part of what makes the Big Island a special place

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: I've enjoyed living on the Big Island for over 34 years now. I call it my home and it has been home to my 3 grown children as well. We all love surfing, canoe paddling and swimming. I think you'll see why the town of Hilo has such an alure especially if you enjoy life at a casual pace. I am a licensed Realtor here and constantly stay in touch with the happenings of this island. I hope you'll love it as much as I do!

                  Why the Owner Chose Hilo:
                  I purchased the unit specifically for a vacation rental. It's a great spot in Hilo; the weather is the very best in this area and you are steps away from the ocean. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoy living in Hawaii and enjoying the ocean activities. I've recently remodeled the unit and I keep it updated regularly for my guests.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  If you've ever wished you could see a Green Sea Turtle right up close; this is your chance. But, please be aware that the turtles are endangered and you can't feed them or touch them. You have a great ocean view right off your lanai where you can enjoy sunrises and lovely evening lights.
