The stream has several totally private pools and waterfalls to enjoy and make for great hikes. Hiking and riding trails go for miles. My turn key ,off the grid, two story 2 bedroom 1 1/2 bath. Lindel Cedar A frame ranch house has great views from the up stairs loft. There is one King and one single bed upstairs. The down stairs bedroom has a King bed as well.

Note :
Flooding may and does occur in North Hilo and the Big Island. Please use extreme caution when near, swimming or crossing any water ways. 4x4 or jeep is recommended for exploring back road areas on the island and to get to my place. 4x4 is required to access Waipio Valley, Green Sands Beach and Mauna Kea. Book a cheap car and ask for a jeep when you arrive to get good rates on jeeps. Aloha and be safe !

                        Stayed in the main cabin for six nights and loved the unique characteristics that you can’t find in other vacation rentals, including horses, onsite waterfalls, natural swimming pools, and peacocks. We had intense rain for the first few days, which necessitated a Jeep 4x4 to get in to the property through the back roads (an adventure in itself), but the rain also created the most robust and exciting waterfalls just steps from the house. Hiking through the very private waterfalls and streams was our favourite experience in Hawaii, a true testament given we were on a three week vacation and created many wonderful memories throughout. The owner, Keith has a contagious passion for and extensive knowledge of the Big Island, making him as much of an attraction as what you’ll find in any guide book - so make sure you take him up on his sight-seeing suggestions. We had an amazing day of fishing out of Kona and caught a baby blue marlin (happily for me it will live to see another day). Keith also pointed us to the most gorgeous beaches on the island, which are not marked on the maps that you’ll get from the car rental agencies or airlines. The house is lovely, kitchen up-to-date and provides spectacular views throughout. It’s an off-grid home, which delivers seclusion and will teach you a bit about generator living and on-demand water heating. Would definitely return and recommend to all of our friends!

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, families with young children, girls getaway, families with teenagers, pet owners, adventure seekers, age 55+.

                        I'd be happy to come back, and maybe next time even bring a group of friends. The cabin is about 30 min. north of Hilo (If you're coming from Hilo I'd recommend you do your grocery shopping there before you leave the town). Wide open space, nice breezes, complete with the company of chickens, peacocks and horses, as well as orange, avocado and starfruit trees (also mango but it wasn't the season). Lots of exploring to do with a bunch of nearby waterfalls. There was another couple staying in the smaller studio cabin on the property, but the place still felt pretty private. Keith was an excellent host, easy to communicate with, and we had a blast hanging out with him on his fishing boat in Kona. I'd absolutely recommend the place, especially if you love being in a country setting.

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, families with young children, girls getaway, families with teenagers, adventure seekers.
