Keaau house description

This is a private, very relaxing oceanfront property close to the quaint town of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii. Very old Hawaiian feeling - not touristy with the traffic and crowds of the Kona side. Our weather here south of the town of Hilo is typically half the amount of rain than Hilo and most of it is at night. Our days are usually clear, bright blue skies and the nice trade winds coming off the ocean.

The bungalows are decorated for the tropical feel with ocean views from all rooms and jungle adjacent. Lots of coconut palms, gardenia, red ginger, and other tropical plants around the home and a rolling lawn area down to the cliffs where you can watch the surf, sea turtles or whales depending on the time of year. There's even a BBQ and picnic table down at the waters edge for some great meals.

The home is completely self contained with everything you need for a great vacation. All linens are provided, utensils, books, games, etc. so you don't have to bring the extras. The main house consists of 1 bedroom, 1 bath with living area, dining area, complete kitchen and laundry facilities in the bath. Perfect for 1 couple with 1 or 2 children. The dettached 2nd bedoom has a queen bed with sitting area and newly remodeled bathroom. You have the choice of one bedroom only or 2 bedrooms, priced accordingly but we do not rent out the 2nd bedroom separately for our guests privacy.

This is a very quiet rural area with other rental properties and retirees who love the islands and outdoor activities. The home is private but not secluded.

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: Jeff and Shelley moved from the Silicon Valley area to the Big Island in 2003 to get away from the hectic lifestyle most of us are used to and now enjoy what the island has to offer - easy living, great weather and many beautiful sights the Big Island has to offer.

                      Why the Owner Chose Keaau:
                      We live just down the street from the property about 4 homes away so we love to share our piece of paradise.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We have many return customers over the several years that this home has been a rental. Everyone enjoys that everything is there for them, it's close to sights, shopping and restaurants and that we're close by for any questions, directions, concerns that our guests may have.
