About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6)
This beautiful home is nestled among macadamia nut farms with an ocean view from the back lanai (porch) and Kawainui Falls practically in your back yard. "Kawainui", in Hawaiian, means big water. Being just nine short miles north from Hilo you get the convenience of being close to town and still having your privacy.
Also not far away is Akaka Falls and Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden. Shop in historic Hilo Town and get fresh produce at the Farmers Market. Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots are just a heartbeat away. Coconut Island is awesome for dipping in the ocean and maybe catching a glimpse of sea turtles.
This fully furnished home has three bedrooms and two full baths. The detached Ohana (mother-in-law suite) has one bedroom and one full bath. This retreat comes with two lanais, big screen TV, DVD player, fully equipped kitchen, blender, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher, washer, dryer, ceiling fans, and a gated entrance.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We recently purchased this beautiful home in October of 2014. We live in Indiana and have visited the Hawaiian Islands since the 70's. We are retired and like to spend our winters in warmer weather. We have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. Our youngest son lives very close to our new property and he and his family take care of our new home while we are away. We love the Big Island and are sure that you will too.
Why the Owner Chose Papaikou, HI, USA:
We love this property because it feels very private and yet it is still close to Hilo Town. It's just a short ride away to the farmers market, shopping, golfing, and beaches. We have plenty of room for ourselves as well as room for family and friends. We love to sit out on the lanai and look out over Hilo Bay and watch the cruise ships come and go. While we're out there we can hear the peaceful sound of Kawainui Falls in the background. It truly is our little peace of paradise.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the unique benefits of this property is the waterfall just outside in the back yard. If you go to the fence line a few steps from the lanai you can look down and see "Kawainui" Falls. Kawainui in Hawaiian means "big water" and when you see the falls you will know why they named it that. It's just gorgeous! We also have macadamia nut trees in the front yard. If there are any on the ground help yourself to some. We provide a nutcracker to have a taste of those delicious macadamias.
