From the moment you enter the 1/2 acre property, a sense of tropical wonder takes hold of you. Orchids grow off of the many tall palm trees that follow the winding path of the paved driveway. Exotic pink palms, blooming plumeria, and hibiscus with multi-colored gigantic flowers await, with huge Norfolk pines towering over this beautifully landscaped property.
At the front entrance to the home are koa and mango wood double doors which lead to a 1500sq foot outdoor centre courtyard, made of wood decking.
The deck is surrounded by the home on 3 sides, leaving one side open to view the palms and trees on the neighbors property, which has no home on it, and therefore complete privacy. A sliding glass door opens from each of the three main floor bedrooms onto this tropical paradise, with several large potted plants and trees. One of these bedrooms has its own area separate from the rest of the house, with its own full bathroom. Every bedroom also has large windows with custom louver window coverings, Martha Stewart bedding, and ceiling fans. And yes, the courtyard does boast a new 6 person 110 jet hot tub to relax even the most uptight one in the group. The private entrance to each bedroom off the courtyard gives a 'hotel-like' feel, perfect for a couples holiday retreat, or for a family with kids.
The ocean front view is breath taking. You cannot be closer to feel the raw power and energy of the bluest ocean, surrounded by smooth black lava cliffs. On this property, the lava has natural ledges allowing you to walk down to near the water's edge, as the waves roll and crash onto the rocky cliffs.
Try fishing off shore, explore the lava coastlines , or just sit on the natural lava rock chairs and watch the turtles right in front of you everyday, as they feed and tumble in the rolling waves. (If you catch one of the numerous whales that come by regularly in season, it's catch and release only!) Dolphins can also be seen throughout the year.
The ocean view is prevalent in almost every room in the house. The great room has full wall glass windows and sliding glass doors on both sides, allowing you to see the ocean view from the courtyard as you look through the great room.
The kitchen is very large, with koa wood cabinets with granite counter tops, and a large center island. The dining table seats 8 easily, and both the kitchen and dining area have spectacular ocean front views, making time in the kitchen actually a pleasure.
The master bedroom has perhaps the best views of all, with a private balcony and sitting area surrounded by windows and three glass sliding doors. If the sounds of the ocean don't lull you into the best sleep of your life, then you really do need a vacation!
Morning sunrise is worth getting up for, especially when Kona coffee is waiting for you. Evening always cools off nicely, allowing you to sleep comfortably as you hear the waves and feel the ocean breeze.
The Hilo side of the Big Island offers the most natural beauty, the REAL HAWAII, from water falls and rainforests, to active volcanoes, ocean tidal pools, natural hot springs, great restaurants in Pahoa hippy town, and much more, all just a short drive away.
This home will give you the privacy you expect, the excitement of the Pacific Ocean in the raw, and a close up view of the ocean's amazing creatures.
Do not pass by this incredible vacation home opportunity!

Very nice and peaceful home. Just like the pictures.
The real feeling of Hawaii!
Beautiful home, stunning location. It was unusually hot & humid when we were visiting, so we were suffering a little with no a/c. But we chalked it up to life in the tropics and fully enjoyed being *right* on the ocean. Deb was so helpful with our planning in advance -- I appreciated that so much! Mahalo!
Beautiful house and view.
House is beautiful and very clean. There was a musty smell as there is no air-conditioning and when closed up the moisture creates a smell. The bedroom off the garage smelled so strong we closed it back up and could not use. The dampness off the water makes everything wet as you have to keep windows open. This is not the owners fault just something you need to be aware of since there is no air-conditioning in the house. One other note, the hot water did not work. When informed the owner as we left she said we should have text. When everyone is getting ready to leave why would I think that texting her would be an easy fix. Possibly leave a note on refrigerator. Last but not least we did not have an issue as ours was a short stay; however, if you stay longer you will have to take your trash to a transfer station. This is a inconvenience that should be mentioned ahead of time. Overall the house was great. Just did not think ahead to ask about the air-conditioning.
Aloha Sheila, I'm sorry to receive your poor review. I realize you only stayed one night so you didn't have a lot of time to really enjoy my beautiful home. In regards to the bedroom off the garage, my cleaner did not anticipate your staying in it since you were a party of only two couples in a four bedroom home. She assumed that you would have stayed in two of the three bedrooms in the main house, so it was not opened up to air out prior to your arrival. You are correct, on a tropical island any closed up room gets humid very fast, which is why the windows stay open to allow for flow of the beautiful ocean breeze. The majority of guests who choose to stay in my home do so because of it's extreme oceanfront spot, and they want to hear the waves crashing throughout the home with the windows open which is why we choose to have no air conditioning. I believe that is noted on the VRBO listing. I was very apologetic about the hot water, and yet bewildered as to why you would not simply contact me about something so important! You had already contacted me once and saw how quickly I responded, so why not contact me again about something I could have fixed for you in one minute and saved us the negative review? I'm sorry your stay was not everything you had hoped for.
The Perfect Getaway
The house, the view, the wildlife- it was all perfect. The house is very spacious and perfect for our party size (7). The kitchen had everything we needed, the outside setting was perfect for early morning and late evening lookouts, and the master bedroom was perfect for my parents. The only tough part about the house was the location- 15 minute drive to anywhere significant (which we got over very quickly). But with that said, this side of the island is very easy to get to the Volcano National Park, North Point, and South Point. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a vacation rental.
Beautiful ocean front setting
It really is one of the best places you can stay. Right on the coast with the sound of the pounding surf resonating through out the house. The house itself is very large and seems to be brand new. If you have the budget - this is the place to stay. We had no problem receiving the damage deposit back.
Awesome Ocean View
We loved the layout of the house. It was perfect for our 3 generation family. The hottub was a welcome extra. Deanna was available through text when we had questions and was very welcoming. But the best amenity of the house is the magnificent location. The touquiose surf breaks on the lava flow just beyond the back yard.
