Be one of the 1st to stay at The Gardenia House which is situated on 20 acres of rolling hills. With over an acre of fenced in yard you will have plenty of space and privacy. Your panoramic ocean view is incredible for watching the ships go by or the whales as they breach out of the water.
The morning brings you wonderful sunrises while in the evening you can watch the moon come up over the ocean's horizon. The sky is full of twinkling stars like you've never seen before. This 2 bedroom home has beds to comfortably sleep 5 guests with 2 queen beds and a twin. It's so peaceful up here that you won't have a problem going to sleep. Out here in the country we catch the rain water then have it filtered a couple of times for a great tasting drink. We even get our electric from the sun with solar photovoltaic.
We’re far enough out in the country for that true ‘local’ feel but close enough to enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer. Within minutes of the Gardenia House are waterfalls, Botanical Gardens, hiking, swimming, zip lines and of course our beautiful coast line. After a long day of exploring you can come back and relax in the hammock while taking in the view. Even if you have to cook your dinner on the grill, you’ll still have a fabulous ocean view to enjoy.
We hope to see you soon, aloha.
Being at Gardenia House is enjoyable and the perfect get-away. The house itself is very comfortable, but the best part is the gorgeous pastoral views down the mountain and out to the ocean where the ocean seems close enough to touch. You can just sir there for hours and absorb it all! It is great, though, when you need contact with the outside world, that the TV reception is perfect and internet also. The bedrooms and beds are comfortable, and the kitchen is adequate, great bathroom, too! We loved coming and going up and down the mountain from the house to the many attractions in the Hilo area, and there are many. We loved the country setting....so quiet, green, and calming. For us it's the perfect get-away in Hawaii! We look forward to staying at Gardenia House again.
This was our favorite of the three homes we rented on a two week trip to Hawaii. It was quiet. Stars were bright at night. Besides the local scenic attractions, the drive to Hapuna Beach on the NW coast was reasonable for a day trip without staying on that busier side of the island. I am sorry that we did not have a chance to meet the owners, but they had contacted us to offer any help that we needed. And, our deposit was returned promptly. We would definitely stay here again.
We loved this place and didn't want to leave -and we stayed nearly 3 weeks. Highly recommended. The property managers are kind, easy-going and responsive
My family and I really enjoyed the home. We were only there for one night. If we ever return to the Big Island we would try to stay again. This a great place to stay to get away from crowds. The only recommendation would be to upgrade the mattress. It was fine for one night, but a bit soft for extended stays. I was worried about the water prior to arrival, but it tasted great.
Hearing farm sounds was cool and a new experience for the children. I would highly recommend this house!
Great place to stay! About 20 minutes North of Hilo on beautiful Hamakua coast with amazing view, cool breezes and huge property gives tons of privacy! We had a great stay here, and had everything we needed for a relaxing staycation. Home was spacious and comfortable.
Gardenia House is a beautiful property; we enjoyed our brief stay. It was very clean and comfortable, with everything we needed and more. There was plenty of seating and elbow room for everyone -- my husband and me, and two of our kids, ages 18 and 23.
The ocean view was breathtaking! Our overnight stay was our first night in Hawaii; my husband was enchanted by the soundscape at twilight. There were many bird calls (we sighted an owl!), along with the sounds of distant cows and chickens as they all settled down for the night and grew quiet. After a stressful day of travel, Gardenia House was very restful and the stars were just beautiful.
It was so incredibly cool to wake up to the ocean view in the master bedroom. We also enjoyed the view while making breakfast. We loved seeing the resident geckos (they're considered lucky)! The information that the owners sent in advance made it easy for us to find the property, and they included suggestions about where to find groceries.
We loved our tour of nearby Akaka Falls and our zip line tour with Skyline Eco Adventures (put both of them on your short list of "must see and do on the Big Island").
We highly recommend Gardenia House; it's peaceful and picturesque, and we would stay there again.
