About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
I do not have an empire of vacation rentals. I am not a Landlord Mogul, Real Estate Agent or Property Manager. This is the only home I own and is my personal residents part of the year. Just need to rent this home so I can pay the bills and also enjoy staying here as much as possible.
**** PS *** YOU CAN SAVE HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS, in most cases, by asking me to bill you through PayPal and I will be personally taking your reservation, (avoiding VRBO fees) and making sure you are comfortable with all that you need. There is currently an uproar by owners and renters and a plethera of class action law suits against VRBO in regards to this out radgeous new service fee that you see in the instant quote and is PAID BY YOU. I can save you this service fee and the $59 for damage policy by billing through PayPal. Just email me including your personal email address within the email text or call me with your request to be billed through PayPal and I will send you a personal quote and information on billing.
PSS... I have recently discontinued any billing through VRBO because of them asking for credit card info prematurely and following up by sending out all kinds of unnecessary junk mail. Please respond with a request for billing through PayPal.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Verify your payment method

VRBO charges an outrageous service charge of 4% - 10% for booking and paying through their automated system.
I can save you hundreds of dollars by billing through PayPal
It is extra work for me but I am very upset with this uncalled for new charge to my guests recently implemented by VRBO.
If you request a booking and would like to save on fees make note in your inquiry
that you wish to pay through PayPal .... You do not need a PayPal account just a credit card.
Please inquire with dates requested and number of occupants
and I will personally email you a quote with information on booking and payment.
You will be dealing with me directly not through the VRBO website.
I use PayPal for all invoices and booking.
PayPal can except payments from all Major Credit Cards
Special discounts may be available for last minute bookings

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

This home is just across from Hilo's most popular Ocean Park and recreational area. Watch the waves roll in from the porch and relax to the sound of the ocean. Swimming, picnicking, laying on the small beachs, watching whales, it is all just a short walk away. Richardson's Beach Park is an education site donated by the Richardson family for the study of marine life. It is a safe park used by many families with young children. The beach is safe for supervised children and there are life guards on duty. Enjoy picnic tables, benches and BBQs for your convenience along with the easy access for swimming and some of the best snorkeling in all Hawaii. Turtles are frequently seen and you can watch whales when they come to give birth in the winter to spring months. Even do some Boogie Boarding or Surfing if you dare at the break just outside the park. When you're ready for a great Seafood dinner, visit the Hilo Seaside Resturant just down the street. Hilo town center is just a quick 5 miles.
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: After years of vacationing to Hawaii, camping around all the islands, I came to Hilo. I found a place rich in music and arts. The people are happy, kind, open minded thinking. And the climate is perfect !!! This side of the Big Island is a lot like the culture and green environment I was used to in my rural Northern California home. I just felt like I fit in here better than anywhere else in Hawaii and so when the chance came, I moved. Scary as it was moving alone to a strange land with nothing but two suit cases, I have no regrets.
Why the Owner Chose Hilo, Hawaii, United States of America:
Richardson's Beach Park offers more recreation than anywhere else in Hilo. This house is also my personal place to relax.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Ocean View just off the main road by half a block, has the sound of nature and not traffic. Just a short walk to all shoreline activities with crystal clear water to cool off in. Lots of activities available.
