Hilo house description

Aloha and welcome to Mika Mizu, serenity in Hilo. Here you will experience a unique and memorable Hawaiian vacation. Mika Mizu is a spacious one bedroom cottage. We suggest 2 guests but it will accommodate up to 3. This beautiful cottage is located in a soothing and natural setting on an estate with two waterfalls and abundant flora and fauna. It is less than one mile to historic downtown Hilo, yet you feel far removed. The cottage is stocked with amenities such as spices and cooking staples in an efficiency kitchen with a full size refrigerator, a built-in 2-burner stovetop, a microwave/convection oven, a toaster and a gas BBQ grill for outdoor cooking. Also provided are both high speed internet/WiFi and cable TV. It has been tastefully furnished in a casually elegant style, creating a very congenial ambiance for your comfort and enjoyment. At these extremely low rates, you will be amazed at this wonderful vacation find.

Note: Mika Mizu is not appropriate for children under 8 years

                              Why the Owner Chose Hilo:
                              We are happy to have a wonderful home in Hawaii, and we love the Big Island, its many sights and its friendly people. Hilo gives one the chance to get a feel of the 'real Hawaii.' The Farmers' Market in town is a riot of color from the many exotic fruits and flowers. There's just a special feeling one comes away with after exploring this unique area.
