Our condo is right in the middle of the BEACH PARKS along Kalanianaole Ave. including Onekahakaha Beach Park, Carl Smith Beach Park (Four Mile), Richardson's Ocean Park, Leleiwi Beach Park, and Kealoha Beach Park. Richardson's is the best for snorkeling, but our favorite is Carl Smith Beach Park (5 minute walk from the condo). It has a calm area with many large green sea turtles and steps down into the water. During November-April we often see whales and spinner dolphins. And, occasionally a monk seal or two. VOLCANO NATIONAL PARK is an easy 45 minute drive and along the way you will be able to visit ATKUSURA ORCHIDS (free admission), the HILO RAIN FOREST ZOO (free admission), and MOANA LOA NUT FARM. If you are interested in MUSEUMS, there are two of particular interest right downtown HILO~the PACIFIC TSUNAMI MUSEUM and the LYMAN MUSEUM~both highly recommended. Don't miss the HILO FARMERS MARKET on Wednesdays and Saturdays~right downtown on Kamehameha. TROPICAL BOTANICAL GARDENS with a waterfall and ocean overlook, AKAKA FALLS, RAINBOW FALLS AND BOILING POTS, UNAMA FALLS, PADDLE BOARDING, KAYAKING, SCUBA DIVING, SNORKELING there is so much to see and do and our condo makes a great home base.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: This is our Winter Retirement Condo. We fell in love with Hilo Town when we brought our daughter to college here in 2000. We knew we wanted to purchase a property where we could get up each morning and swim in the ocean. There's no better place for that than Carlsmith (Four Mile) Beach which is a 5 minute walk from our condo. We love to be outside so the opportunities to swim, snorkel, hike to the waterfalls and in the rain forests is what we love most about living here. We live in Colorado Springs, Colorado during the summer and fall each year where we enjoy our kids and grand kids.
Why the Owner Chose Hilo: Clean, nicely updated and decorated, close to the airport, close to the Hilo beaches, elevator, Wi-Fi, Cable TV, swimming pool, washer and dryer inside condo, dehumidifier, large lanai surrounded by rain forest plants and birds, 55' Vizio HD TV (new in 2014), quite spacious for a condo.
