Nearby, on top a hill is our private little piece of paOradise. The house overlooks a vast swath of East Hawaii. From the blue of Hilo Bay to the mountain top of Mauna Kea , and across miles of the Hamakua Coast one can see sights of verdant splendor. Sitting on fifteen acres which borders a stream this vacation house has all the comforts of home with a 'get away from it all feel'. Main house upstairs has three bedrooms and two baths. Fully equipped kitchen , dining area with seating for 6 people. Master bedroom has king size bed, adjoining bathroom. The other two bedrooms have queen sized beds that share a full bath. Each room has an incredible view. Enjoy your morning drink sitting on the lanai perched high above this pastoral site.
