About the property

Paradise Retreat is a brand new vacation rental just a few blocks from the ocean in Hawaiian Paradise Park, 20 minutes south of Hilo. This roomy and comfortable 3 bedroom home is equipped with many exciting amenities including a swimming pool!

As you drive through the ornamental gate and into the circular driveway you'll see palm trees and tropical flowers lining the property. You'll enter through the beveled glass front door into the foyer that is designed with decorative flourishes. To the right, the living room and dining area are combined beneath vaulted wood panel ceilings. A comfy overstuffed couch and recliner surround a large flat screen TV that is equipped with Dish Network.

Step through the sliding glass door to the yard. Here's where things really get exciting! The large shady lanai is furnished with outdoor loungers, rockers and a sofa, all surrounding the built-in pool. A large concrete patio surrounds the pool; you'll also find the gas grill here. The grassy yard stretches beyond the pool and patio area, and is meticulously landscaped with privacy palms and a variety of tropical flowers.

The large kitchen features polished granite countertops and tile floors with high-end stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, electric range and side-by-side fridge with ice and water dispenser. Etched glass cabinets and a large pantry provide ample storage space. There are small appliances including a toaster, coffee maker and microwave. Pots and pans, dishes, cups, glasses and utensils are all provided.

A hallway from the dining area and living room leads to the bedrooms. You'll find two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds, separated by a full bathroom with shower over tub combo and grab bars for guests who need a little assistance. Both bedrooms also have large closets and high quality ceiling fans to keep things cool and comfortable.

At the end of the hallway is the spacious, air conditioned master suite, which offers a king bed, and an enormous walk-in closet. The ensuite bath provides a classy tile stall shower, and a large jetted tub. On the opposite side of the kitchen there's a large laundry room with a washer and dryer, ironing board, laundry sink and a third bathroom with a shower and toilet, both with grab bars.

OMG!!! What a Wonderful House!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house looks brand-new, is very spacious, has a great floor plan, a wonderful pool and a beautiful yard. This property is also exceptionally clean and well-stocked with everything you will need for your stay. If you are looking for complete privacy, this is your property! Just a half-mile off the ocean, this property has heavy foilage, a beautiful lawn and is very secure. I wish I could just pick up this house and move it to Oahu for the second leg of my journey and whenever I travel again, it is that nice!

As far as the island of Hawaii goes, there are some decent places to eat. We had great meals at The Pond, Hula Hulas and also at Jackie Rey's. Stay away from Lucy's Mexican restaurant, it was awful. The property book recommends many restaurants from an area called Pahoa but we found this area to be quite odd and didn't feel very safe there.

You must absolutely go see the volcano. It is quite amazing. Make sure you take the road down to the ocean and see the lava flows and craters. Also do not miss the Hawaiian Botanical Garden just north of Hilo. It is one of the nicest I have ever seen and again it ends up right at the oceans edge.

In closing, I would recommend this property very highly.

Very clean and good quality

  • 5 of 5

Wished we could have stayed longer. Very clean and beautiful! Definitely a home away from home. It had everything we needed and more. Thank you for the fresh fruit! The rental agency was very responsive and were able to answer my questions thoroughly. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful garden

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and found it to be quite comfortable. The garden and pool were the highlights. Although, we wished the pool was warmer. The kitchen could use some sturdier tools for cooking. Overall, it was a nice base to explore the area.
