About the owner: We live on site in the main house on the property and had the vacation homes built in 2013 with your utmost comfort and privacy in mind.
Why the Owner Chose Hilo: We love the location which is so close to all of our favorite activities, including walking into Honomu Town and getting fresh baked goods and shave ice at Mr Eds, the restraunts, and fun shops. We love that Akka Falls is 5 minute drive from the house and makes a wonderful workout. We also love that Umauma Falls and World Botanical Gardens are so close, as well as Onomea Bay and Hawaii Botanical Gardens.Its great you can be at Honolei Surfing beach in under 10 minutes and that Hilo offers so much culture including the twice weekly farmers markets and any food you could possibly desire, as well as lots of eclectic shops.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We love the location. Its so close to so many wonderful attractions, that are literally minutes away. We love that Honomu town is so eclectic and you feel as if you have stepped back in time, to the one of the last remaining old hawaiian towns. We love that everyone is so friendly and the aloha spirit that fills the air...life doesnt get any better than this. We cant wait to share our home with you and hope that you too will fall in love with this beautiful hidden gem of an island. It is truly paradise.
