About the property

4 Bedrooms + Den - 4.5 Baths - (Sleeps 9)

Come enjoy a memorable vacation in a beautiful tropical setting. Mika Taki is an exceptionally lovely large home with two acres of tropical splendor, incuding a waterfall and pond for swimming. The property is private and peaceful.

Mika Taki is constantly updated. This includes high speed and wireless Internet service, and cable TV. Outdoors you will find a dining area, a large deck lounging area, a luxurious Jacuzzi, lovely gardens and paths to various water features of the property. There is also a screened-in lanai. We have created a mini private oasis for you - yet it lies less than 2 minutes from downtown Hilo.

Here is the layout of the house: 4 Bedrooms – all 4 ensuite, each with its own private bathroom. The master suite has a King size canopy bed and a beautiful bathroom with an ofuro (a Japanese soak tub.) The other three bedrooms all contain Queen size beds, each with a distinctive style and beauty of their own. The living room, which is very large, contains a comfy sitting area grouped around the lava rock fireplace. There are many Japanese decorations, including antiques. The floors are eucalyptus wood with oriental area rugs to compliment the furnishings. The gourmet kitchen is a dream. The kitchen comes fully equipped and stocked. All you need to do is bring your own fresh foods and beverages. Completing the layout is the TV/media room adjacent to the living room. This room also has a wet bar. Just outside is a screened-in lanai where you can sit and listen to the waterfalls below. A fifth half bath is provided, as well as a laundry room. From every room, you view the towering palm trees, the lush flowers and the abundant tropical vegetation. The home is on one level.

**Mika Taki is in a residential neighborhood and to be good neighbors we do not rent the house for large parties. We do not allow more than a total of 10 people on the property at any one time

About Sara/Jamie

We met in Hawaii, fell in love in Hawaii....and the rest is history. Now we get to share our good fortune with guests from around the world.

Why Sara/Jamie chose Hilo District

We are happy to have a wonderful home in Hawaii, and we love the Big Island, its many sights and its friendly people.

Hilo gives one the chance to get a feel of the 'real Hawaii.' The Farmers' Market in town is a riot of color from the many exotic fruits and flowers. There's just a special feeling one comes away with after exploring this unique area.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

It provided all the necessities, plus great aesthetics. We created lots of memories to last a lifetime during our stay. Thanks again! Mahalo!

Very well appointed house with all the amenities and more! Beautiful location in the rain forest

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay with our entire family of 3 grown up kids. Location very convenient to all the attractions Hilo has to offer. House was very clean, and had everything you possibly needed. It also allowed everyone to be together comfortably, as well as provide their own private space when required. Would definitely stay again...

Magical Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Words can't describe the magical experience the two of us enjoyed at Mika Taki! The rainfall, the coqui lullaby, the lush jungle-like tropical surroundings, the charm and privacy of the home itself, led us to the best night's sleep we've had in years! The owners thought of everything we could possible need, and every detail surpassed our expectations. Very close to town and a great jumping point to explore the east side of the island. We'll be back!!

Great home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend your time in Hilo. Quick drive to downtown and other scenic locations. We shared the home with three other couples and there was plenty of room. Having the full kitchen was a huge plus. We loved how each room had its own unique feel and décor. The owners were very responsive and helpful in every detail. They had even left us all earplugs in case the frogs were too much at night, but while loud, they are lovely to listen to every night. Definitely recommend staying here.

Better than you can imagine!

  • 5 of 5

As others have said, the pictures just don't capture how beautiful this house is. We literally all gasped when we entered the house as it is so lovely in every detail. Great kitchen for those who love to cook, plus a big grill outside. Luxurious linens, comfortable beds, beautiful Japanese decor throughout the house. The path to the waterfall is indeed a challenge, but worth the effort as swimming in the pond with the waterfall was great fun. Really the best rental property I have ever experienced! If we ever return to the Big Island, this is where we will stay.

Lovely gem of a place in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

This is a great find. The house really can't be judged by the pictures posted. It is so well thought out, beautiful and peaceful. It is very clean and has a comfortable, lived in feeling to it. I enjoyed the location because it's out of the town just far enough to be quite, yet a quick 15 minute walk to the center of Hilo. The owners are super responsive to questions and very kind people. The frogs do put on quite a show for the hear at night but that's all part of the charm of the jungle. Earplugs are provided but no one in our party needed them. This is the kind of place you look forward to visiting again. The hot tub was a nice addition and what a treat to have a personal waterfall!

Absolutely fabulous - pictures hardly do it justice!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is one in a million... Not only is it comfortable and charmingly zen like with its Japanese styling and appointments, it is situated above a hidden private tropical oasis with a stunning waterfall where you can swim!

The location is in an older residential neighborhood close to waterfront Hilo. It is lush and quiet. The home is very comfortable and offers every amenity. There is even a hot tub, but we preferred swimming at the waterfall in the refreshing water.

The property was clean, well maintained, and the owners are very friendly. The kitchen, bathrooms (5), and laundry were well supplied. The owners thought of every detail.

Staying at Maka Tiki was the highlight of our vacation!🌺 We highly recommend it!
