About the Property

3 bedroom, 2 bath, full kitchen & laundry facilities, surrounding lanai

Spacious rooms with many windows and huge surrounding lanai create an open, refreshing atmosphere in this lovely retreat known locally as 'Cedar House.' The building was designed with two completely separate apartments, one on each floor. If you require more space than our 3-bedroom Garden Apartment (#215220) provides, you can reserve the entire house. (Check details for the upper-level Cedar Balcony at VRBO #1020900.)

The garden apartment on ground floor offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms, laundry facilities, fully equipped kitchen, and immediate access to a yard full of flowering plumeria, bougainvillea, hibiscus, banana, mango and assorted other tropical foliage -- all sheltered by coconut palms. Inside, you'll find DVD/CD players, reliable high-speed internet, and satellite TV. There's off-street parking for your car.

A five-minute stroll takes you from your Cedar House lanai to the friendly waters of Wai'Opae Marine Conservation District, where snorkelers swim in coral gardens with curious turtles and tropical fish. Explore the quiet roads of Vacationland (that's really its name) and neighboring orchid farms. Or wander down Red Road to soak in the geo-thermally heated, spring-fed oceanside pool at Ahalanui Park about a mile away.

Follow Red Road (Hwy 37) farther south along Hawaii's newest gorgeous coastline, and there's a chance you might see red-hot lava flowing into the sea. Stop along the way to walk among the ironwood trees on spectacular bluffs above the breaking waves at MacKenzie Park. Or sun-bathe with the locals in the cozy atmosphere of Kehena's clothing-optional black sand beach.

Then check out the shops and fine restaurants (Thai, French, Italian, among others) in Pahoa town, eight miles inland from Cedar House and on the other side of Lava Tree State Park. If it's Sunday, you might want to see what's happening at Maku'u Farmers' Market nearby. You'll find fresh vegetables, fruit and music with lots of local color there.

Within easy driving distance, remember the historic old town of Hilo with its antique stores, restaurants, university lecture series, concerts, state-of-the-art planetarium, and quite a bit more. At the planetarium you can learn how ancient Polynesians used their knowledge of the heavens to navigate uncharted Pacific waters, sailing to and from Tahiti for centuries before European ships arrived. Displays of on-going volcanic activity show how these islands were formed in the first place. Check out the farmers' market and picnic in the peaceful parks near Hilo's harbor, where downtown streets were inundated once by tidal waves memorialized now in the Pacific Tsunami Museum.

An hour's drive south from Hilo takes you to the most active volcano on earth, in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Visit the Kilauea Volcano Caldera, Thurston Lava Tube, Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, or hike intriguing trails through rain-forest wilderness. In another direction, you might find yourself looking at the snow-capped peaks of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea rising 14,000 feet above sea level (elevations comparable to the Colorado rockies) and more than 30,000 feet above the ocean floor. From there it's an easy drive back to your Vacationland retreat.
