Book Now at these Low Rates!!!

If you want luxury, you've got it at our Mika Taki home – the most fantastic home in Hilo. Here you will find spring-fed swimmable ponds and waterfalls. Totally redecorated by an expert interior design team, the ultimate in amenities, antiques galore, Japanese motif, views, and spaciousness. You will not believe the attention to detail. It is like staying in a presidential suite at a five star hotel!!! In Hilo, yet fully surrounded by nature and beautiful grounds, it has two acres of tropical splendor. Look no further, it has it all. Why stay in a stuffy hotel when you can have a million dollar home with total amenities such as the custom kitchen with top of the line appliances, a full entertainment center, and Jacuzzi. You can swim or catch prawns at the ponds and so much more.

Because Mika Taki is furnished with Japanese antiques and lots of glass, it is not appropriate for children younger than 8 or if there are more than 2 children in your group. We suggest you look at our other houses which are more casual and fun for the young ones. (Mika Kai – VacationRentals listing #7361 or Mika 'Alua – VacationRentals listing #18951).

Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful and well kept house and property, loved having a private bathroom for each bedroom. Spacious kitchen, living room and bedrooms along with a great screened in porch which we loved having our morning coffee in. Hot tub was an added bonus. Communications with Jamie prior to our trip was excellent. She kept in continuous contact and supplied us with information and directions to local eateries, markets, grocery stores, etc which was extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend it for a vacation get away!

Beauty & location can't be beat

Beauty & location can't be beat
  • 5 of 5
The photos are nice, but the house is even better! Our family of 5 arrived on a sunny afternoon (arrive in the daylight, because it gets dark here). The location is so convenient (walking distance) to downtown Hilo, yet it feels like you are miles away. The drive through the neighborhood is lovely with the one lane bridge, lush foliage and orchids and tropical flowers everywhere. Once inside the house, our kids were excited trying to determine which room to choose. Each room has its own bathroom and is beautifully decorated in a Japanese motif. The bedding is luxurious and the beds were very comfortable. I slept well once I got accustomed to the jungle sounds (rain and chirping coqui frogs). The owners have decorated the home with wonderful details and provided many conveniences: beach shoes (some beaches are rocky), beach towels, guide books, even a welcome basket with coffee and goodies. We enjoyed visiting the property's waterfall, but be sure to wear bug repellant. I loved walking around the neighborhood admiring the flora and fauna and met some very friendly neighbors who shared Hilo history. We discovered a few local restaurants worth mentioning: Tina's Garden Gourmet Café (amazing Thai food with lots of organic veggies), Moonstruck Patisserie (the best croissants outside of Paris) and Pineapples (delicious fish & chips and great live music -- make a reservation). Many local attractions are nearby: several waterfalls, Banyan Drive, Coconut Island, snorkeling with turtles. This home is a gem!

Amazing rainforest/zen escape in Hilo!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 spent 3 wonderful nights here near the end of June. The place is tremendous...clean, well appointed, & decorated beautifully. The rooms, hot tub, & kitchen made for a superb family base while exploring the east side of the island. We did not want to leave!

Five stars Hardly Qualifies - Extraordinary Home and Oasis

  • 5 of 5
Fortune guided me to this extraordinary retreat. On a whim I ventured into 4 bedroom rentals, and to my delight found MIKA TAKI. Same price as three bedrooms but several dimensions above. The quality, the care, the thought of design are at every step and it is a very large space. My family did not see the photos and had no idea what was in store. And like kids they bopped from one room to the next, delighted...simply delighted.
Jamie and Noi -- know what luxury is (from quality beds, appliances, design, lighting) but they clearly design this to be a unique, graceful space that resides in nature and compliments it.
Thank you! Thank you!
We enjoyed the hot tube, the large sectional couch, the TV room, the walks in the neigborhood, the birds and coqui - the private swim in the secluded, chilly lagoon, and more.
And we had a friendly B&W kitty welcome us home every day and every morning. Our person butler - We called him Tux-

Joyous time - We will return.

Mahalo - aloha!

Wonderful House! We Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 3 evenings at Mika Taki and loved this beautiful house!! It did rain a lot while we were there but I loved hearing the rain and all the coqui (frogs which actually sound like birds chirping). I did use ear plugs at night and had no trouble sleeping. My husband on the other hand liked going to sleep hearing the coqui. The house had everything we needed for a wonderful stay! It was close to Hilo's Farmer's Market (on Saturdays), Waterfalls and other interesting sights. We would definitely stay here again if we are able to get back to the Big Island someday. Jamie, the owner was fantastic to work with! She was responsive, kind and very helpful! Thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely home!

Gorgeous Home

  • 5 of 5
The home is absolutely gorgeous!! Clearly designed with a lot of thought and attention to detail. With all the beautiful vegetation it feels so private and yet you are so close to everything. I slept so well … falling asleep to the sounds of the "jungle" and/or the rain falling. The owner was very responsive every time I emailed with a question We appreciated all of the suggestions and we really squeezed in a lot!! Visited Volcano National Park, Akaka Falls, the Botanical Gardens and the wonderful Hilo's Farmers Market. Only sorry we were leaving the next day so we couldn't purchase food at the market!! We enjoyed Pesto's Cafe so much for dinner our first night that we returned for lunch one day. I'm not sure where I got the recommendation, but when we were at the Volcano we had lunch in a delightful place: Cafe Ono. Just be aware, the trip down to see the waterfall is perilous ... very narrow, steep slippery path.
