Lastly, about a mile away I have a similar house as this. It is at VRBO Listing #453343. I always keep the calendars updated.
Richard Standke purchased this House in 2012
Why Richard Standke chose Keaau
There are many low priced properties in Hilo. This house is larger than most with plenty of room so spread out. It house is spotlessly clean and in great condition. Paradise Park is South of Hilo enough to enjoy a real Hawaiian neighborhood but close enough to be at a Hilo restaurant in 25 mintutes. Enjoy a sunrise unlike you have ever had. Cook a great breakfast and enjoy it on the patio or my moving the furniture near the ocean cliffs.
What makes this House unique
House is just 25 minutes from Downtown Hilo. Not well known, Hilo has more tourist destinations than any Hawaiian destination. These include: *Historic Downtown with shops and restaurants on the Bay. * Waterfalls right in town. Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots. * Akaka Falls just 25 minutes North of Hilo * Volcano National Park, just 35 minutes above Hilo * Hawaiian Botanical Gardens.One of the nicest gardens you will find. * Hilo Farmers Market. Everyday but largest on Wednesday and Saturday. * Liliuckalani Gardens at Hilo Bay including Coconut Island. * Lyland museum for historic information and geologic rocks. * Tsunami museum housed in a historic bank * Wine tasting at the Volcano Winery * Beer tasting right in town at Hawaii Nui Brewery * Coffee tasting at Hilo Coffee Mill on your way to the Volcano * Hilo Zoo. Free and very pretty. * Mauna Loa Nut company self guided "look through window" tour and gift shop. Free and nice shop for lunch and ice cream. * Historic Palace Theatre downtown. Check internet for show dates. * Nearby to Pahoa town, near active lava flows. *Continue on to Ahalanui Park's warm pond and then snorkle at Champagne Ponds (tidepools) in Kapoho. * Venture South beyond Volcano National Park to Punaluu County Park for lots of black sand and full time lounging turtles. * Continue South for Punaluu Bake shop and South Point Road. Incredable vistas from the most Southern point in the U.S. * Go North along the beautiful Hamakua coast and go horseback riding in Waipi'o Valley.

It was a very nice house, outside had some rust due to moisture.
About a half hour away from Hilo, so plan your outing accordingly. Owner very courteous and supplied information to sites and food stores.
Too far out from Hilo and house is somewhat dated. It was clean but just not up to standards that I have rented before on the big island.
This is a very unfair review. There was nothing specific she didn't like or that we could have improved upon. There isn't luxury furniture or fine art, but everything you need for a vacation rental. The location is very popular for vacation rentals. The house rents for only $170/day for 2 guests. Similar to many hotels and this is a whole house that is on the water.
The house was okay except for the dog smell when we checked in.
Nice and quiet
End of the road, very spacious!
This was just what we wanted for a home base, so we could explore Hilo and the volcano. The ocean in the backyard was so lovely, and it rained every night so everything was fresh and clean every morning. Very quiet, dirt road with large lots and lots of jungle!
Great spot for a peaceful getaway
Great spot for a peaceful getaway but still central enough to get everything you need.
View amazing, wonderful
Plenty of room, spacious. We felt right at home immediately. The pictures do not lie, you are right on the cliff. In high surf we even got wet. We saw whales and turtles. Would definitely stay again.
