Amazing GetawayGuest comment entered by owner
This beautiful estate was just what we were looking for after spending a few days on the Kona coast. The house was in pristine condition and you could tell that the owners take great pride in their home. It is beautifully decorated with a laid back island feel. The spacious layout was perfect for our family. The crashing waves and total seclusion created an amazing getaway for our family. We really enjoyed the beautiful Onomea scenic route, where the property is located, the waterfalls and ocean vistas are like something out of a movie set. We stayed there with our four young children who loved to play croquet on the lawn and run around on the 15 acre estate. The proximity to Hilo town was an easy drive for dinner, farmers market, beach time and Akaka Falls. Our children really enjoyed swimming with the turtles at the Carlsmith Beach Park and the black sands at Spencer's Beach. We discovered some great local favorites: Mio's Restaurant, Hilo Bay Café and Pineapples all healthy local cuisine with a friendly local crowd. All in all, we found our stay to be very relaxing and enjoyable.
