Payments are handled through the security of the Homeaway/VRBO site. Guests also receive information on restaurants, shopping and my favorite places to visit.

On the same property, but separated by an unused garage, I have a one bedroom guest house. The listing for that rental is VRBO Listing #397903. 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.

Outstanding Home

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful home on the water with a great view, I wish I could have more time here on the island it's such a beautiful place. This home meets all accommodations, definitely made me feel at home. If your in town you should check this out you won't be disappointed. Can't thank them enough for being there for me and my teammate on such short notice. Very respectable and understandable. Thank you again!!

We were in town for a quick business trip and all hotels were booked so we turned to VRBO. We were LUCKY because the place that I tried to book was about 30 minutes out of town, but the owner, Richard, was kind of enough to read why I was in town and then suggest that I stay in one of his other properties which was VERY CONVENIENTLY LOCATED just a few miles outside downtown Hilo. In short, the house was more than we needed, with lots of bedrooms and baths, plenty of common area and a really nice deck/lanai out front with two sets of glass doors that allow the ocean breezes to fill the house. The house was neat, clean and totally functional with a few additional touches that made it worthy of another stay in the future when I can bring my family along. Warmest Aloha to Richard for this recommendation.

quiet, relaxing place and the view can't be beat!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at this property with my husband and parents for two nights in Augus. Two nights wasn't enough time! The view is gorgeous, and I wish we had more time on the big island to enjoy it. It had been raining more than usual for several days when we arrived and the downstairs bedroom was a little bit musty smelling, but not bad. After opening the windows up, the smell dissipated and it was fine within an hour. I slept there and had no complaints. The rest of the house was clean and nice. The kitchen was stocked with a few essentials and we were able to cook in it easily. The location isn't super close to any grocery stores, so it would be good to arrive early enough to take stock of what is there and make a grocery list.

The location is close to volcano sightseeing, whether you want to go to Volcano National Park or take a boat ride to see lava pouring into the ocean. We did both and loved the experiences! If you're going out for meals, I can highly recommend breakfast at Pele's Kitchen in Pahoa and dinner at Tina's Garden Gourmet Cafe in Hilo -- the food was fantastic at both of these places!

I would stay here again, ideally for more than two nights to be able to explore more of the island.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. It sounds like you had a great time and the house worked out well for you. I strive for consistent 5 star experiences and I don't see a reason for "only" 4 stars. This side of the Island is always a struggle with humidity when the weather is unusually wet.
