About JAMIE PHILLIPS

We met in Hawaii, fell in love in Hawaii....and the rest is history. Now we get to share our good fortune with guests from around the world.

Why JAMIE PHILLIPS chose Hilo

We are happy to have a wonderful home in Hawaii, and we love the Big Island, its many sights and its friendly people.

Hilo gives one the chance to get a feel of the 'real Hawaii.' The Farmers' Market in town is a riot of color from the many exotic fruits and flowers. There's just a special feeling one comes away with after exploring this unique area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cannot put into words the beauty of Hilo and this house! What a spectacular location with all amenities. Loved our stay and will definitely recommend it to family & friends. Thanks for an amazing stay.

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.

We stayed here five years ago just after our wedding and I STILL think of this place. The pictures do not give this home the credit it deserves. This is more than a place to stay like a hotel room, it is a vacation all in itself. Sit, relax, listen to the beautiful sounds of nature. One day we will be back to visit your hidden treasure.
