Our house is a couple of short miles from Hilo town and offers, quite simply, the best ocean front view possible. You will look down upon crashing waves and out across the Bay to Hilo and to the surfers gliding down the silver waves. The view is dramatic but relaxing. During whale season, this is the best possible location for viewing. Sometimes they come so close you can look into their eyes. The house is fully equipped. This will be your Pacific vacation to remember.

De ruimte
Simply put, this property sits on one of the most gorgeous ocean-front locations in East Hawaii. Unlike other ocean-front homes, you will not need to walk to the end of a yard to appreciate the Pacific waves. Here, you will feel as if you are on a ship. Simply step out onto the deck, look down and there is the Pacific ocean lapping at the shoreline 100 feet below you. We have actually fished off the deck. We believe the quality of this view and proximity to dramatic breaking waves are unique among vacation rentals in East Hawaii. This is particularly so considering it is only a couple of short miles from quaint Hilo town, the seat of Hawaii County. During the whale season, humpbacks will breech and frolic so close to the house that, on occasion, it will seem as if they are putting on a show just for you. Sometimes the cove below is visited by schools of spinner dolphins, which number in the hundreds. At almost anytime, you can look out from the windows or deck and see surfers sliding down the face of silver waves at nearby Honoli'i beach. On most days, a giant cruise ship will sail out of the dawn and past the house in the morning and then past the house again at sunset, as it leaves Hilo Bay, festooned with a thousand glittering lights.

Please know that this is an older style Hawaiian home. If you are seeking luxury, you'll have to look elsewhere. The house is built from Redwood and is a single wall construction home. In other words, wood boards for walls, not the stud variety. Some of the doors are pocket doors as opposed to swing doors. Please don't expect the level of sophistication that you will find at resort properties. This is a simple house, built for a local family back in the 1950s. We have undertaken some modernization but essentially it is the same charming house that was constructed all those years ago.

The house is a 40 minute drive from Volcanoes National Park and a brief three minute drive from Hilo. It is perfectly located for exploring East Hawaii and a spectacular hour and a half drive from the beaches and town of Kona.

Aside from the spectacular view, one of the benefits of staying next to the ocean is the lack of pesky mosquitoes. The ocean breeze, which will keep you cool, also serves to drive most of them away. Unfortunately, the Big Island has been invaded by coqui frogs in recent years, which make a loud (not altogether unpleasant) chirping noise in the evening. Many B&Bs and vacation properties here actually supply their guests with earplugs. Luckily, the ocean breeze also keeps most of the coquis at bay. You will hear some chirping but it is extremely unlikely that you will find the noise too intrusive.

The house has a large kitchen and living room with picture windows overlooking the ocean and across the bay to Hilo Town. There is a master bedroom with a king-sized bed and french doors leading onto the deck and an outdoor shower. The second bedroom has a full and a twin bed. Each of the upstairs bedrooms has a large TV, full cable and premium channels.

The living room features leather furniture and a gas fireplace, which serves to create ambiance rather than heat as the temperature in Hilo rarely drops below 70 degrees. We have deliberately not put a TV in the living area as we hope that you will enjoy the spectacular view, uninterrupted by flickering images and perhaps read, chat or partake in some of the family games we have left for you. However, there is double-speed wireless internet connection throughout the house should you need it for your own devices. You will find binoculars for observing the whales, surfers, dolphins, cruise ships, sailboats and Hawaiian outrigger paddlers.

The deck features a large, expandable teak dining table with chairs. It is doubtful that you will want to eat indoors once you have experienced the pleasure of ocean-front dining, although there is an additional dining table in the living room, should you choose to. There is an additional table with all-weather chairs and if you need it, a folding table. Should you wish to entertain, there is ample seating for your guests. For relaxation, there are teak deck-chairs and a comfortable, quilted double hammock in which to swing to the sound of breaking waves. Should you wish, grab a pillow with a blanket and let the hammock rock you to a wonderful night's sleep under the stars.

The large kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for comfort and convenience: extensive granite counter-tops, a double-door stainless steel fridge with water and ice maker, a dishwasher, garbage disposer, a Keurig coffee maker with a complimentary selection of coffees, large microwave, blender, rice-cooker, slow-cooker, toaster and range. There is ample china and silverware for all your dining needs. Should you need them, you will find coolers for taking on your island adventures.

Outside, you will find a kayak, life-vests, boogie boards and snorkeling equipment. Please feel free to use them to enjoy the magnificent Pacific ocean, which undoubtedly will provide you with many happy memories during your stay in Hawaii. You will also find tennis rackets and balls as well as some other beach games to enjoy.

I have noticed that some vacation rental owners claim that their properties are much shorter driving distances to Hilo than is possible. Please bear in mind that any oceanfront property in lower Puna, claiming to be within the Hilo district, is at least a 50 minute drive from town, often a lot more.

This home is special. It is with reluctance that we are having to leave it to live on Oahu. That said, it is nice to offset some of that reluctance against the knowledge that our home will be bringing pleasure into other people's lives. If our home brings you even a fraction of the joy it has afforded my wife and me, you will be blessed with wonderful memories from your stay.

The house is located on a quiet cul-de-sac about three miles from Hilo town. The neighborhood is extremely safe and friendly. The beach is about a fifteen minute walk away. You can get up to Volcanoes National Park in about 35 minutes. The Hamakua Heritage Road, which goes north from the house, is spectacular.
