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!
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!

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?
