About Mike Zamarripa

Aloha, my name is Hamlet and I live on the property with my very old dog (Wally) and two cats. I love meeting new people and being able to share this spectacular island with my guests.

Mike Zamarripa purchased this house in 2012

What makes this house unique

Secluded but near much. A little bit of country without being isolated. Short drive to Pahoa and it's variety of restaurants. Close to Volcano and Hilo in either direction. Also near the black sand beach and tide pools for snorkeling. Just 11 blocks from the ocean and a secluded spot for those 'zen' moments, or a wonderful picnic.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha! Thank you so much for a relaxing stay at the Island Breeze Bungalows! From the moment we walked in it truly felt like home. We wish we didn’t have to leave! But we will definitely be coming back in the future and can’t wait to stay here again! Mahalo!

Island Breeze Bungalows

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed in many 4 star hotels and, recently, we have switched to vacation rentals. We are so happy we did as we have found the most wonderful experience in travel vacations we never had known about in the past. By luck, we discoverded "Island Breeze Bungalows" These are so unique I would put them against a 5 star hotel. What is so unique, they are not only very clean and well-maintained, they have their own equipment such as snorkeling equipment, mountain bikes and a manager who was more accomodating than a first class hotel consierge. We are definately going to recomend "Island Breeze Bungalows" to all our traveling friends.

The property was NOT at all as the photos had described. There has been an obvious change in ownership and the grounds are in sorry shape. The pool was absolutely disgusting and we were not informed that it was "down" until 1 day prior to our arrival. The Linai was dirty and unkept, which discouraged any outdoor grilling or pool time. The new "owners" lived in the orchid suite with their cat and dog. I feel for the poor old dog, Walter, who was leashed up on the deck all day and night, while the owners were away. There were dog feces and urine on the decks, which actually should be reported. we could not wait to check out. sounds like Joe and Denise did a great job with their beautiful property 4 years ago, and would be upset to see how the bungalows have deteriorated.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry Elaine felt this way. We have had and continue to have many positive reviews of the Bungalows.Our guests have always thanked us for a wonderful stay. I wish we were told of her discomfort while she stayed with us. On one note that I will address, yes the pool was down during her stay and the subsequent stay as it was in need of a repair. We take pride in the bungalows and the grounds.We strive to make every stay a pleasant one for our guests as our reviews make a testament too. Mahalo

My stay in the Orchid Suite

  • 5 of 5
I loved the property. It was clean and had an interesting and open floor plan. We had to change our travel plans and it was very easy to contact the caretaker to alter our arrival time.
It was convenient for visiting the Volcano area, as well as the Puna district and the waterfalls near Hilo (Rainbow Falls, Akaka Falls). There were more food options nearby than I expected, so I was pleasantly surprised.
It rained almost every night and it was interesting to listen to the rain on the roof. The one annoying thing was the neighborhood roosters. Apparently they can't distinguish a full moon from sunrise and crowed a lot.
For the most part you can't drink the water from the faucet, but they start you off with a supply of bottled water (and we had brought a case of our own) so it wasn't an issue.
I would definitely recommend this property to a friend.

2 Weeks of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We had the best vacation ever staying in the bungalows--so relaxing and everything we needed was included. Joe & Denise have thought of everything, including a high powered hair dryer. I enjoyed using the bicycles to explore the area and using the outdoor patio to BBQ. Sure was nice not having to eat out all the time. Joe's brother, Jim, has lots of good suggestions of things to do and great places to eat.
We are looking forward to our second stay next March with another couple whom we have talked into staying at the bungalows. Can't wait to get back to listen to the birds singing in the morning and coqui frogs in the evening, while sitting at one of the patios sipping on some wine. Cheers!

Spectacular Property!

  • 5 of 5
Our 9 night stay was absolutely glorious. This property is outstanding in design, decor and amenities. Joe's brother Jim is next door and is so helpful. There was no one staying in the other cottage, so we had the entire place to ourselves - what a treat! This property is out of town and you feel like you are in the jungle night and day - coki frogs and crickets by night and the roosters by day. Our weather was perfect and we couldn't have asked for anything better. Mahalo Joe and Jim for making this trip to the islands so great! A hui hou ~

Hawaiian Paradise Park in Kea'au is ideally located to take advantage of benefits of Hilo, 12 miles away, the ocean only one mile away, and Volcano National Park, 20 miles away.

After staying in many vacation rentals, we decide not to buy right on the ocean since the foot traffic from hikers and people fishing limits your privacy and security. Also when the surf is up, it is hard to get a good night sleep.

So we bought one mile from the ocean, at a road the ends at a Hawaiian State Park so we get no foot traffic and we can hear the sound of the waves when the surf is up. We also have come to know and love all our neighbors which makes for a nice little community.

Other Activities: See the Volcano and Botanical gardens.

Golf: Golf - while the Kona side has some of Hawaii's finest golf resorts - Mani Lani, Waikoloa, Mauna Kea - there are many other to enjoy. There are 20 golf courses on the island. You can tee off in the 'Playground of Pele' at The Volcano Golf Club for around $70. (Cheaper if you go with a local) Volcano Golf & Country Club Public - 18 Holes - Par 72 - 5800 Yds P.O.
