About The Owner

My wife and I purchased our home in Hawaii in 2000. We are pleased to offer this unique Japanese living experience to you when we are away.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Keaau

We looked for several years for a home on the Big Island that we would enjoy living in. The unique Japanese design, quality of construction,open living areas, ocean view, private and peaceful setting made this home an easy choice for us.

What makes this house unique

This is where my wife and I go to get away from it all. It is easy to forget the normal pressures of everyday life in this private and peaceful setting-our Sanctuary in Paradise!

We own the lot across the street from our house. The lot was hand cleared to preserve the natural flow of the lava. Our landscapers have planted many native plants. Guests are welcome to take a walk on the 1 acre lot.

We really enjoyed staying at your place!

  • 4 of 5

Everything about your property is beautiful! I really liked the open areas through out the house and especially enjoyed the garden and pond in the center of it all. We'd definitely stay here again! Only change I'd make is the inside-locking of the slide doors/windows to make it easier to lock from the inside. Other than that, the whole property layout is well planned including the front and back yards. Beautiful property inside and out.

Relaxing and quiet area.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed exploring this side of Hawaii and the house was a good home base. We were looking for some restful quiet time and this place was great for that.To be fair to other travellers considering this property I will add some comments to consider. The home is very spacious and you can find whatever you need for your home stay but everything is very well used and worn with some appliances on their last leg. The interior is dated and could use a deep clean or renewal. If you want to watch TV on rainy evenings there are no comfortable chairs to sit on. The door screens no longer fit snugly so we had a bug battle each evening swatting then vacuuming the fallen corpses. The pool was a welcome feature to cool off on muggy hot afternoons. The king bed was comfortable for sleeping. I understand maintenance can be a difficult challenge for owners in Hawaii's climate.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

How can I express the wonderful experience? This home is centrally located on the East side of the Island. Very clean and decorated tastefully. My husband and I as well as our daughter and son-in-law. enjoyed every minute of our stay. The pool was nice, even though we didn't spend much time in it.....too busy site seeing. We are in love with the Hilo area, people are super friendly and laid back.

Only down side: this great home is very hard to find after dark! Trash disposal was another hitch but we found the "transfer station" the second day. Rachel had good directions to it. Overall, We loved this home and hope to return. I would highly recommend this great home to my friends and family. When you stay here, be sure and take in the Farmers Market, Hilo Bay Café and believe it or not: the local I-Hop has a great breakfast menu.
