Hilo house description

Come home to Noe's Nest and find the sweet island life of 'God's Country': the Big Island's Mauna Kea mountain slopes. In Hawaiian, 'Noelani' describes 'the mists of heaven,' which is our favorite Hawaiian place. After your visit, you may never want to leave! At Noe's Nest you'll find:

Beautiful 180' view of the Ocean and East Hawaii's coast from Hilo to Kapoho Landing, from your own lanai.
Sparkling new 1100 sq ft home with luxury linens, beds & custom bathroom.

Centralized kitchen, complete with all amenities.
Wander through lush gardens with exotic orchids, rare palms, fish ponds,& tall flowering tropical hardwoods.
Relax & get away from it all, while being only a few minutes drive from downtown Hilo.

Centrally located access to all East Hawaii activities: Farmers markets, Volcanoes National Park, Kapoho Hot Ponds, Hawaii Botanical Gardens, local beaches and parks, surfing, diving, Mauna Kea nightly 'star parties' at 9000 ft, and more.

Unwind and relax on Hawaiian Time at Noe's Nest!: A lovely 15 minute drive from Hilo airport, you'll wind up the hills through neat ranches scattered with cattle, horses, sheep & goats. Our home is located in a small private subdivision of 3+ acre homesteads.

At a perfect 1200 feet elevation, you'll enjoy warm tropical days & delightfully cool nights year round. Nighttime showers usually ending before dawn keep our hillsides green. 'Noe;'s Nest ' faces due East, for gorgeous sunrises above the ocean from your comfortable king bed complete with luxury linens and snugly quilts.

Your 1100 sq ft custom home has 2 large bedrooms : the master with a king sized bed, the 2nd bedroom with 1 double and 2 single beds. We can set up a port-a-crib for your tiny tot. Clean & crisp, with tropical decor, your house has a well-appointed kitchen, bathroom and large shower, spacious living and dining area. Your full-sized ocean view covered lanai (porch) will make you feel right at home in our upcountry paradise.

At Noe's Nest you can wander down a quiet road or.: zip to town for a swim, or decide to just sit on your lanai & snooze under your straw hat. Open your eyes & take in the stunning 180' view of the blue ocean, with Hilo town sparkling on the bay. Gazing out to sea has a way of renewing the spirit, now matter the season.

Just minutes below Noe's Nest in Hilo, you can stay in town and find lots of local color, or turn North or South for a day of adventure. You East Hawaii adventures can be quiet and subdued, or active and exuberant. Driving up the Hamakua Coast, you find some of the simplest and most stunning views anywhere in Hawaii. Getting out to explore small towns and our beautiful parks you come close to Hawaii at its pristine best. Remember to practice your aloha everywhere you go, and you will be rewarded with wonderful memories. Smile and relax, don't rush....your on Hawaiian time now! Forget your watch.

Miss your pooch? You can borrow a friendly dog..: ...or visit Merlin the llama in his pasture. Our pet Nigerian goats will beg you for an alphafa treat. Wander through the hillside landscape full of exotic orchids, fragrant tropical flowers, rare palms and tall flowering hardwoods.

Relax on a bench by one of 2 waterlily ponds, or bask in the sun on your recliner with a cool drink. Get active or get lazy, as the spirit moves you! Breakfast on sweet apple bananas & papaya. Pick a fragrant gardenia for your bedside, or your hair. We've found no jewel can match the beauty of a fresh gardenia.

              About: David & Nora are longtime residents of Hilo. David is a master wood bowl turner and built our homes and gardens here in Hilo. Nora is an CNS, MSN, RN, traveler, animal lover. We lived in Alaska for 18 great years prior to moving back to Hawaii to raise our family of a son and 2 daughters. Love our home here in Waiakea Uka and sharing it with friends and family!

              Why Hilo:
              We found this 3 acre Waiakea Uka property after months of searching on the east side of the Big Island. It is a dream come true for us to be able to live here and share it. The climate is wonderful; the breezes balmy and the night delightfully cool. Night rains keep our plants lush. We love animals: our dwarf Nigerian goats, chickens, 2 dogs and cats, and so do our guests. We live a casual life, grateful for all we have. We work hard to keep everything clean, comfortable & welcoming for our guests so they can just kick back and enjoy themselves!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Sunny days, cool nights, nightly rains that keep Hilo GREEN! Hundreds of rare palms, our bee hive, our ponds, lilies and lotus flowers, and other seasonal bloomers: orchids, vireyas of many colors, ti, hibiscus, brugmansia. David's wood shop. Beautiful walks up the hill and grand views of the ocean from Hilo Bay to Kapoho lighthouse. The company of friends, family, animals and the god sent trade winds that keep us a unique spot on earth. The lovely drive up to the house with striking views of Mauna Kea, Panewa Forest, & Hilo Bay. Driving to work at 6am is a joy, and how many people can say that? We are grateful for this very special spot and hope you enjoy its unique perspective on East Hawaii.
