About the property

Located in Hawaiian Paradise Park 20 miles south of Hilo on the Big Island. This home offers the perfect base for your Hawaiian getaway. Walk along the scenic ocean cliffs of Kea'au just one block from this house and let the sounds of the surf lull you to sleep at night. Incredible snorkeling is just a short drive away in one of the Puna district's beautifully clear tide pools. Hike through the jungle or on top of dried pillow lava to experience sights unique to the Big Island. Venturing further, there are all kinds of adventures to be had: fishing, beaches, zip-lining, volcanoes, whale watching, surfing, kayaking, hiking, or just a day at the spa. The island is yours.

This rental is under new ownership and now includes a screened in lanai for additional living space, new refrigerator, ceiling fans, furniture and an updated look. Comes with a fully equipped kitchen as well as a new outdoor grill. Washer and dryer are included as well. Has two bedrooms equipped with a queen bed in each, as well as a twin bed on the lanai for lounging. Two bathrooms. Perfect for honeymoons or small families. Palm trees line the driveway and a wide variety of topical fauna adorns the backyard. Located in a mellow neighborhood with vacation rentals all around it. You will have privacy without the feeling of seclusion.

Come visit our little corner of paradise and leave with a Hawaiian experience unlike any other. Aloha mai kakou!

Great location, beautiful Lanai!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! It was close enough to Hilo that it was easy to get in and out of plenty of things to do. We were also relatively close to Volcano National Park (although it wasn't open during our stay due to the current Volcanic activity). Also with this location we felt 100% SAFE from any of the Volcanic activity and were even blessed with a beautiful glow every night from the lava flow....that once again was a long distance away!!! The extras were great, we had bags and snorkel equipment for our ocean adventures, a booster seat for the little one and a pack n play for her as well. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us and my mom even spent her nights on the covered porch (lanai), and we spent most of our meals out there as well. Everything was clean and we had everything we needed. The only problem that we had was with the water pressure, we didn't know it wasn't normal for it to be that low...but as soon as we said something we had two gentlemen (Andy and John) each come out to check the water filters and fixed the problem! Plenty of windows to keep open and let the breeze go through the house.

Clean and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a beautiful fenced yard and has a great screened porch. House itself is a little small, but adequately sized for a family of four.

I would highly recommend this property. Very comfortable; clean and liked that it was gated.

  • 5 of 5

We sincerely appreciated the welcome gift. The house offered a lot of amenities which made our stay even more enjoyable. The yard was well maintained with beautiful foliage. Property was well lighted. Linen and towels clean and of high quality. We especially enjoyed the screened in area of the house where we enjoyed our meals; sat and played games or read books. Again I would highly recommend this property and would rent it again.

Lovely but ........

  • 3 of 5

The house and location was fantastic, but I must have missed the part of the advert that said no AC. Many houses thereabouts have no AC. This was difficult for me coming from a cold climate to a very hot and humid week.

The hosts were very thoughtful. I enjoyed listening to the frogs at night.
