About the owner: Returned to live in Hilo in 1984 after mainland educations to raise our three children. This was the best of small town living: walking to school and all afternoon sports and activities.
Why the Owner Chose Hilo, HI, USA:
This custom home built in1962, was purchased for extended ohana (family), a stone's throw from original family home, we enjoyed grandparents nearby and space for visiting friends and family. The location of our homes enabled us to enjoy small town living with everything conveniently available to us. Minimal driving allows us to save on time and gasoline.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is a custom design with no steps throughout, spacious rooms and fully equipped for a comfortable vacation. Convenient location is minutes away from all the services, shops, museums and activities in Hilo. BIG ISLAND easily accessible: hike a live volcano, enjoy an ocean snorkel and wander through a rainforest in a single day. Zip across Saddle Road to West side to shop and explore and be home for dinner.
