Overview

Hilo Estate Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Den - 4.5 Baths - (Sleeps 8)

If you want luxury, you've got it at our Mika Taki home.. Here you will find spring-fed ponds and waterfalls. Totally redecorated by expert interior design team, the ultimate in amenities, antiques galore, Japanese motif, views, and spaciousness. You will not believe the attention to detail. In Hilo, yet fully surrounded by nature and beautiful grounds, it has two acres of tropical splendor. The property is private and peaceful. 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, Jacuzzi. You can swim or catch prawns at the ponds and so much more.

Mika Taki is constantly updated. This includes high speed and wireless Internet service, and cable TV. Outdoors you will find a dining area, a large deck lounging area, a luxurious Jacuzzi, and lovely gardens and paths to various water features of the property. We have created a mini private oasis for you - yet it lies less than 2 minutes from downtown Hilo.

Here is the layout of the house: 4 Bedrooms – all 4 ensuite, each with its own private bathroom. The master suite has a King size canopy bed and a beautiful bathroom with an ofuro (a Japanese soak tub.) The other three bedrooms all contain Queen size beds, each with a distinctive style and beauty of their own. The living room, which is very large, contains a comfy sitting area grouped around the lava rock fireplace. There are many Japanese decorations, including antiques. The floors are eucalyptus wood with oriental area rugs to compliment the furnishings. The gourmet kitchen is a dream. The kitchen comes fully equipped and stocked. All you need to do is bring your own fresh foods and beverages. Completing the layout is the TV/media room adjacent to the living room. This room also has a wet bar. Just outside is a screened-in lanai where you can sit and listen to the waterfalls below. A fifth half bath is provided, as well as a laundry room. From every room, you view the towering palm trees, the lush flowers and the abundant tropical vegetation. The home is on one level.

**Mika Taki is in a residential neighborhood and to be good neighbors we do not rent the house for large parties. We do not allow more than a total of 10 people on the property at any one time

About The Owner

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 The Owner 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

Your home is gorgeous and really made our vacation special. The little gifts you left are much appreciated and very sweet. This location is incredible, in the jungle with the waterfall, a dream come true! Thank you so much!

Beautiful, relaxing home surrounded by nature

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in other rentals prior to Mika Taki on Hawaii but it definitely was the most beautifully furnished and conveniently located of them all. We loved the decor and the generously stocked kitchen. The owners even gave us a welcome basket with goodies which we all enjoyed. The location is fantastic. It is surrounded by nature and very private. The coqui frogs are loud at night, but the owners provided ear buds. The only comment we had was that on overcast days it gets kind of dark in the house and a little damp due to the open nature of the house. We loved the place and will definitely look to stay here again when we visit the Big Island again!

Month stay exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family enjoyed every minute of our month at Mika Taki. Beautiful home in a lush environment. The private bathrooms for each bedroom add privacy and space for all vacationers. The kitchen was a dream for cooking and we used the hot tub daily. Too many special touches to describe, but I would recommend this r any group wanting a lovely home in Hilo that feels secluded and where coqui frogs serenade nightly.

Our second time at Mika Mizu. Outstanding vacation cottage. Exactly as described and pictured. Great restaurants, farmers market, friendly and helpful people. Wonderful fresh caught fish at Suisan which we grilled. Loved our meals on the deck. Definitely a home filled with Aloha spirit.

Wonderful and magical

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 and my father in law really really enjoyed the Mika Taki. I fell in love with the house by browsing Hilo rentals, and the house exceeded my expectations, it is indeed beautiful and peaceful. The master bedroom is to die for, and all the rooms have their own spacious bathrooms, plus there is an extra one in the laundry room. The kitchen is fully and beautifully equipped, and the sitting areas are comfy and elegant - I liked the Japanese decorations. I swam in the pond and pushed my girls in the little canoe that was there. We enjoyed the hot tub under the stars and moon. It will be unforgettable.

Because we are 5 in our family, we always have to rent 2 hotel rooms or one suite if available. Renting this was much better.

We walked to downtown Hilo all the way to the Coconut island, and we went to the Botanical Gardens, hiked Onomea trails, saw Akaka falls, Kolekole Beach, and south to Puna, to Champagne pond and Kapoho tide pools - best snorkeling; we saw the lava glow from the Jaggar museum in the volcanoes national park, and hiked the Kilauea crater (awesome experience); we ate fruit and drank smoothies every day. Hilo and it's surroundings are beautiful, and we should've stayed more.

Jamie was very quick with the email replies and I would and did recommend this to my family and friends.

A Special place!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 (4 adults, 4 teenagers) had a wonderful stay at Mika Taki. Jamie was helpful in advance of our trip. The house itself was fantastic, well equipped with lots of space. The setting is beautiful, we loved the waterfall! It's an easy walk to town but you feel like you are in the jungle far from civilization!
