Property description

**New Listing: Posted November 11, 2015**

Our home was given the name Hale Nani Ma Ka Lihi Kai, Beautiful Home at the Ocean’s Edge, by a Kumu Hula who visited during the Merry Monarch Hula Festival.

This newly remodeled Kama'aina two story beach house and studio is rented as individual units or all together. Each unit has sleeping accommodations for four. The upstairs and studio units offer AC. The downstairs unit does not have AC but is very cool throughout the day and evenings. Discounts are offered when multiple units are rented. Each unit has its own patio and there is a large shared outdoor patio with seating and a grill. There are ocean and garden views from the upstairs patio and front porch and it is only a short two minute walk to beaches, tide pools, and ocean shoreline.

Our vacation rentals provide an ideal location for visitors looking to visit all the sites on the east side of the island. The home is 5 minutes from the airport, shopping, restaurants, and Hilo’s popular Downtown Farmer's Market. The Hawaii Volcano National Park and waterfalls along the Hamakua coast are a 30 to 40 minute drive away. The world famous Arnotts’ Tours to the Volcano, Mauna Kea, and other famous vacation sites are less than a five minute walk from the home.

The upstairs beach house provides a full kitchen and bathroom, one bedroom, two living areas (one with a full size futon sofa bed) and a large patio overlooking a pond and garden. Although, there are ceiling fans throughout, air conditioning is also available for those warm tropical nights. The downstairs provides a kitchen area with microwave, refrigerator and other small appliances, a living room and dining room area, full bath with shower, small and large outdoor patios, and bedrooms one with a full size bed and the other a queen bed.

A walkway connects a studio unit with full kitchen, dining area, and bath. This air conditioned unit also provides a queen size bed and futon sofa bed.

Come visit and stay close by to everything Hilo has to offer.

Owner info

About the owner: Local Kamaaina family that grew up and lived in Hawaii for generations.

Why the Owner Chose Hilo, HI, USA:
The property has been passed down for generations and has a historic history. The owners grandparents and great grandparents lived and loved this ocean home. Their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren have spent long endless summers fishing and swimming in the beautiful beach and ocean nearby. As the owners children have grown they have chosen to share the beauty and island spirit of their family home with others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This older Kamaaina home is located close to all the beautiful island attractions, yet isolated enough to provide visitors with the morning and evening quietness and serenity they long for when visiting the islands. Couples are able to enjoy quiet evenings with ocean sounds, lush green garden views, and a beautiful night sky from every patio. Families will enjoy the closeness of the ocean cove where little ones can safely swim, explore tide pools, and collect shells and other artifacts that the ocean delivers daily on the beach.
