ReviewsWrite a review
We recently returned from our vacation in Hilo, Hawaii. We LOVED this house! It was exactly as presented in the description on the VRBO website. It exceeded our expectations because its too difficult to describe the beauty of the ocean being just outside your door and the sound of the ocean. The owners were extremely helpful and accommodating. The location is a few miles from town but it is really not a bad drive. The waves were wonderful to listen to all day and night. Having our own pool and hot tub was perfect. This was our first time renting a house but we will do this on all of our vacations from now on, so much better than a hotel. There is a wonderful farmers market in Hilo and in the town of Pahoa there is a nice grocery market with a fresh deli. We took the doors of helicopter ride, it was great. We also ventured over to the Kona side, taking route 200 was a very good drive. The road is newly paved and well maintained. Just gets a bit cool up in the mountains. There are many things to do on the island and the owners sent us a magazine of 101 things to do on the big island. You will need water shoes if going to the snorkeling area near the house, many of the beaches are very rocky on the Hilo side. The beds were comfortable and this place had all the comforts of home. I would highly recommend this place if you are considering visiting Hilo, Hawaii. We didn't want to leave! Aloha!

Fantastic home. Great views, saw a school of dolphins one morning. Very clean, nicely updated. Has every thing you could need. After a busy day of volcano, black or green sand beach, etc. it was so nice to come back to a relaxing place to unwind. The pool was wonderful. Would definitely stay here again.

Peaceful and comfy home
Peaceful and comfy home
We spent our honeymoon in the house and were very happy with the location, interior and exterior of the house. It is a nicely furnished house (we only used the main house, not the apartment), clean and well maintained, very comfortable and the pool is just lovely. Sitting by the pool, one can take in the view of the ocean and, in June, see turtles swimming by basically all day. From the pictures, I thought the ocean was a little further away but the cliff is only about 20 feet from the pool and fence! We specifically liked that the kitchen is very well equiped with spices, all basic cooking equipment and small appliances. The water is filtered rainwater which is fabulously soft but does taste a bit different than what we were used to. There are plenty of towels and all other things needed to make a home easy to live in. We also liked the location of the house in a quiet subdivision (right now, there is a construction project going on further up the road which was a bit noisy at times), close to Hilo and the Volcano National Park. A trip to Kalapana where tours start to see the lava flow into the ocean is also just 30 min away. There also is a fun Farmer's Market very close by which takes place on Sundays. And although this seems to be the "bad weather" side of the Big Island, the beautiful vegetation and the usually mild rains more than made up for the lack of sunshine we experienced on some days. The owners were easy to reach and very helpful when we had questions. In total, I very much recommend this property and would happily return for another stay at this beautiful place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house and pool were perfect. Really enjoyed the farmers market 10 minutes down the road on Saturdays. The produce and art as well as food prepared there. Go hungry! We had beautiful weather for hanging out at "home" and daily adventures at that end of the island.

The house over looks the Pacific Ocean, great view. The accommodations were first class. The owner furnish all your needs and in quality. Everything from the pots and pans to the furnishing were top quality. There is a gust house with a queen bed and fold out couch in addition to the two bed rooms in the main house. We were warned by the owner that a neighbor had complained in the past about parties. However, we spoke with the neighbor and found her to be a delightful woman. We had a party for 17 people and had no problem.. However, we ended the party at 10 PM. The property is about 30 minutes south of the Hilo airport. I highly recommend the abode.

Exceptional welcome to the Big Island
Exceptional welcome to the Big Island
We started our 2 week stay on the east side of the island in this wonderful home that was well appointed; immaculately clean and had the great ammenities of a solar heated pool and hot tub. This place was exactly as represented and pictured in the VRBO website: a true find. We were blessed with great weather and took advantage of the pool, patio and local snorkeling site at Wai opae Ponds. For a few days we caught site of whales swimming off shore and on the last night, while playing cards onthe patio, the whales serenaded us with their squeals and breaths as they ventured close to shore. The only consideration here to note is that the house is right on the ocean if you like the sound of crashing waves then this is your place. We are westcoaters so it sounds like heaven to us. But the winds can blow and there is much sea spray then so either head out for a day's excursion or be prepared to get a little damp. Would definitely return for a second visit.

Amazing place for a relaxing vacation
Amazing place for a relaxing vacation
Our group of 3 couples stayed here in Feb 2013. We began our vacation in the Waikoloa area and moved to the Hilo side for the last 5 days of our vacation where we stayed at Shangri-La. We all loved this property. The views of the ocean were amazing and the property was in very good shape. Layout was good for the 6 of us and the owners have it furnished with everything you will need. Beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are all good sized. 2 of the bedrooms are in the main house and the third is a detached "apartment" connected to the garage. The apartment is mostly self contained with it's own bathroom, sitting area and washer and dryer. There are other houses next door that are separated by tall fences. Pretty private setting despite the proximity of the other houses. When you are inside looking out the many large windows facing the ocean, you really don't notice the neighbors properties. We had no complaints about the house or the property itself but if you are planning on staying here there are a few things you should be aware of. The weather on the Hilo side of Hawaii can be pretty bad in the winter. We experienced high winds and surf (which caused a lot of salt spray on the patio area) and it rained (a lot) every day we were there. There were some periods of sun but it mostly rained so our outdoor activities were kind of limited. The pool and hot tub are very nice to have but note that when the sun isn't out the pool will be pretty chilly (solar heating requires sunshine) and it may be too cold for many (only 2 of the 6 of us braved the pool). The hot tub will hold 4 people (would have liked it to hold 6). House is away from the crowds and very quiet and peaceful. It's 35-40 minutes from the volcano and 25-30 minutes to the shopping and restaurants in Hilo. The town of Pahoa is much closer with a grocery store and a few decent restaurants there as well. Check out Yelp for recommendations. Pahoa is kind of a strange little town, like a throwback in time. People watching here was interesting. In summary, this house is a great value in an oceanfront property and if you are not afraid of getting rained on during your vacation it is a great place to stay. We have rented lots of houses through VRBO and this one is the most unique and has one of the nicest views you could ask for. Owners are easy to work with and want you to really want you to enjoy your stay.

Owner response: Aloha Jeffrey.. Mahalo for your great review. We aim to make our guests super comfortable with all the amenities we can provide. We cannot however predict the weather when we get a lot of "liquid sunshine" sometimes more than we want. But glad you had a great vacation and come and visit us again in sping or summer ! Aloha, Trisha
We had an amazing time during our stay from 9-12 February. Beautiful sunrise every morning - hearing the ocean from our bedroom - simply paradise. The home was immaculate and well taken care of. Would definitely stay here again during future visits...

This place is magical, so beautiful, peaceful, and more then we could have imagined! The main house is huge, so warmly decorated and lighted so beautifully that when we arrived at night it was just perfect. The main house has two large bedrooms and two full baths, an office, dining area, nice kitchen and big livinig room - in emaculate condition. The quest house is huge in itself and has all the admenities that one would need. The backyard is the BOMB! A beautiful full solar heated pool with a spa on the deck under the patio cover - the Tiki Tiki lights around the pool at night with the lights on is better than any resort I stayed at - and the privicay was outstanding. The wonderful sounds of the ocean, rain, and widelife made falling asleep like you were in a ocean jungle paradise - just like a relaxtion CD. I would definatly return and would definatly recommend this place to others! Aloha and Mahalo!

Beautiful Hilo Shangrila
Beautiful Hilo Shangrila
First of all, this place is a great place to get away from everyday stresses and relax to the fullest. I personally enjoyed watching and listening to the waves crashing into the rocks of lava, watching the turtles in the surf close to the shore, and falling asleep to the Coqui frogs and ocean waves. I did have some issues when we arrived late the first night. We had been searching for a handicapped accessible place to stay because our son was in an accident last Nov. and became a quad. We looked at several places and decided on this place after reading the description and talking to one of the owners. It sounded like it would be perfect for our son, the description said it had a roll in shower and easy access for entering and exiting the house but when we showed up there was no way for him to get in the house and there was no roll in shower. I wanted to cry because I was tired, stressed and disappointed because I thought I had made sure it was going to work. I called the caretakers and they showed up shortly and got a ramp that was out in the ohana, so we were able to get my son in and out of the house but we still needed to figure out the shower situation. We slept on the thought and talked to one of the owners and they were going to refund our money and offered to call around to find us a compatible place, but after we woke up and all talked about it we couldn't leave because it was such an amazing feeling looking out at the ocean right in the back yard. My son wanted to stay and figure out another way to get his shower. The owners had the caretakers fix the outside shower for him and that worked okay but was too hard for us to push his chair too. We fit his chair in the tub in the house and we picked him up every other day to move him in the chair for showering. It worked but was kind of a pain in our backs. The Volcano is close by to go see, there is a free zoo and farmers markets with fresh fruits and vegi's and crafts people have made on the island. The warm ponds are close by and if you want to go to Kona you can take an amazing helicopter ride over beautiful parts of the island like the tropical valleys, waterfalls and the volcanoes that cannot be seen as well on foot due to the remoteness. The people who work for and own the Hawaiian Blue Helicopters are some of the nicest people too. I would totally recommend anyone to stay here. The owners and caretakers did help us to feel more comfortable and they were easy to talk to. Loved it

About the owner: As a college student of 19 I found myself on Oahu (I was from Philadelphia) visiting Hawaii for the first time during the Vietman war. At that moment I knew Hawaii was someday to be my home, Maybe it had to do with the ice storm I left back in Philly. When I got home, I applied with United Airlines and moved out to Chicago, then to L.A. I flew for United for 27 yrs. around the world. Nothing came close. Hawaii was to be my destiny ! I married a very interesting man from Tibet 15 yrs. later and eventually we found a place to call home in Hawaii. We both lived out of a suitcase doing international business together and traveling the world. Now we sell 'memories of a lifetime' and enjoy meeting people from all over the world
Why the Owner Chose Hilo:
Living and working in Hawaii is the best you can get ! Sharing our world with our guests brings us much satisfaction. We love our island and the people who make it great. There is nothing like Oceanfront property.. they are not making any more of it..except at Volcano National Park.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Outrageous ! The waves, the whales, the pool on the edge of the ocean, the fresh air you breathe in looking down on the crashing waves below. NOTHING LIKE IT !
