About the property

3/2 with ocean view, close to everything

Our centrally located, air-conditioned home includes all you will need to make you feel like you've found the perfect home base. Located on the main road to town and frequently traveled by locals to the area's schools and hospital, the house is only 3 minutes from the ocean one way, and Rainbow Falls the other. It's 10 minutes from Akaka Falls, 30 minutes from Mauna Kea Observatory, 40 minutes from Volcano National Park, or 1.5 hours from Kona. While you may hear the occasional ambulance siren or traffic from passing vehicles, the location is ideal for seeing the entire island in several day trips (no matter which way you travel, yet provides the lush tropical feel you expect from Hawaii while keeping you away from the Vog and traffic of the Kona side.

The large lanai over the garden full of hibiscus and ferns provides ample seating to enjoy the ocean view and breeze for your morning coffee or afternoon ice tea. A BBQ is provided for your use as well as a fully stocked kitchen with breakfast bar. The cozy living room includes a big-screen TV and plenty of lounge-worthy places to rest your feet after a day of exploring.

All contents are NEW! The bedrooms are each furnished to provide an awesome night's rest, with lots of pillows, soft linens, and ample closet space. Individual AC units in each room allow for varied level of comfort. There is a full bathroom in the hall and an ensuite master bathroom complete with walk-in shower and jetted tub. The big screen smart TV's in the master and living room, along with the washer and dryer in the hall, round out everything you'll need to survive both a long hot day of sun or a rainy afternoon. We welcome all backgrounds!

*Note - House is secured with KEVO - will need your smart phone for use as a key - no metal key to lose!

About The Owner

California grown; Hawaiian at heart. We love to travel and have done so all over the world. Hilo is one of our favorite places. As we live in Northern California most of the time, the jump over is something we can do often, so we took the leap on a home that we truly love in Hilo. Everything in the house (except major appliances) is new. We will be adding little items here and there and upgrading appliances as needed, but it is ready to share with everyone now. Enjoy!

The Owner purchased this house in 2017

Why The Owner chose Hilo

Having been to several of the islands in both Hawaii and the Carribean, we found Hawaii island was our favorite. From the Bontanical Gardens up the road to the Kapoho Hilo side of the island, the tropical feel, small town mentality and proximity to everything on the island is ideal. Kona is fabulous for its beaches, but a simple day trip provides the sun and coffee experience all should have. Returning home to Hilo you leave the traffic and Vog for a real slice of tropical paradise.

What makes this house unique

The location, fabulous kitchen and master bath, and beautiful lanai are the highlights of this property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband loved your home. He told me to book this place from now on for when they have to go work on the Big Island. He loved the layout, the simplicity and of course the AC. He kept calling me and telling me that this was the BEST VRBO that I have gotten for them and I book about one week a month for them. Congratulations on a well maintained very smart home. Our employees appreciated it very much.

Charming, clean, and convenient

Beautiful property with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Convenient to downtown Hilo, waterfalls, and close to the road over to the Kailua-Kona side of the island. The perfect base for our exploration of the Big Island!

This place is wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

We live on the Big Island, but needed a larger place for our family to have Christmas together. Jennifer and her husband provided an incredible solution for us. Not only that, but she had it decorated for Christmas with a nice tree and other ornaments. This place is far and above anything we expected.

There is a very comfortable front porch that is a wonderful place to sit, have a drink, enjoy breakfast, quietly relax or have a conversation. Even though it is on a busy street, you would never know it, because the beautiful shrubs and landscaping block any noise.

The master bath has a huge Jacuzzi bath along with a roomy shower. Jennifer included many wonderful extra amenities one would not expect. They supplied wonderful soaps, bath salts, and even a couple of bath robes. They have beach towels, a beach umbrella, beach chairs and beach toys for younger children.

The neighborhood is clean, quiet and safe. You can easily walk to a plethora of wonderful shops downtown, museums or even the ocean bay. There is a 7-11 two blocks aways for last minute needs.

On top of every thing else Jennifer is extremely accessible and responsive to all your needs.

We can't recommend this rental highly enough.
