This home is as close to living outside as you can get. While the bedrooms and kitchen area have large windows that close, the living room and wide hallway are just screened in. This makes for a wonderful way to enjoy the rain forest without the bugs! The home is so close to town but feels like it is miles away. It is totally isolated from any other property. Of course the waterfall view is the highlight.
The house was extremely clean and we had no issues with bugs. While the coqui frogs were noisy I didn’t have any problem sleeping with the windows open. Earplugs were provided if you felt like you needed them.
Overall this home truly did live up to my expectations and I will certainly come again if I have the opportunity.
Quiet Area, Close Proximity to local beach ideal for surfing and paddle boarding. Property was amazing with great sunrises and the gentle crashing waves on the rocks and beach nearby. Short ride into town and easy access to the Beltline Road at points North. We used this as our base to explore Hilo, Volcano NP, Waimea, Waipo and Hamakau including Akaka Falls. The owner was very communicative and provided a lot of details about the area and things to do. House is well detailed and has many conveniences in the kitchen, games, and some beach gear. Believe it or not we were able to jump off from here and go to beaches on the West Side and still trek back and make side trips to Waimea and Honokaa.
