SPACIOUS AND LOVELY OCEAN VIEW HOME SOUTH OF HILO

Hilo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Relax in a two-bedroom, two-bath house with a large ocean view lanai. Our house is on a quiet street that runs along the ocean and has two parks within easy walking distance on the coast. You will find there are more walkers than cars passing below our lanai. We are an easy one hour drive to the volcano. There aren't that many live volcanoes in the world, and how many of them can you actually walk around on?

You are close to many places worth exploring. Hilo has old-Hawaii storefronts, a farmers\flea market, and cultural events (such as the Merrie Monarch Hula Festival and the Big Island Hawaiian Music Festival). And Pahoa with its mix of Cowboy and Victorian character with wooden sidewalks is close by and has some of the best small restaurants in East Hawaii. There is much more to see and explore in Eastern Hawaii — or you can just sit on the lanai, listen to the waves, and watch for whales.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Michael Zimmerman

We area recently retired couple getting ready to move to our Hawaii home. Until we do so we are letting others make use of our home for their vacation. We take much pride in making our home a very comfortable place with all the amenities you could need. But you do not have to take our word alone - you can read the comments in this listing from the many renters who have stayed in our home.

Michael Zimmerman purchased this house in 2009

Why Michael Zimmerman chose Hilo

Before we bought this home we had stayed in many vacation rentals on the Islands so when we set ours up we knew what distinguished one from another. Our home is different from many in how little traffic you will see. It is not unusual to be sitting on the lanai on a lazy Saturday afternoon gazing at the ocean and not see any cars for an hour.

What makes this house unique

The windows throughout the house provides an ocean view from nearly every room in the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

One of the nicest vacation rentals on the Hilo side of the island and convenient location. The home is very well equipped with lots of room and a nice view to the ocean. The area is pretty quiet and the neighbors walking their dogs each morning are very friendly. Michael was wonderful to work with and communicated better than most rental owners and provides some helpful area information about things to do and places to eat and shop. This is an excellent value for your vacation dollar and you won't be disappointed. (Aug - Sep 8 days)

Much nicer than expected - great value

  • 5 of 5
Right at the ocean, very soothing. Awesome open floorplan and great furnishings and wonderful huge deck.

We commuted to hilo 30 minutes every time - don't go during active construction time. Easy access to kehena, pahoa town waipio valley, and volcano (do bring a jacket). Just can't beat this big island rental as a base for exploring and relaxing.

We found that if you are down by the ocean like this great house is, the microclimate is drier - we think Hilo has an interesting mix of cloud, sun, and rain ( torrential at times and mostly at night). KONA was consistenly hazier and greyer, super crowded and touristy, and didn't get the cool breezes at night.

If you don't stay here you are wasting money for the price!!

Excellent Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
This is one of the best vacation rentals we have ever visited. The owners clearly put a great deal of time and effort into making visitors feel welcome. They include many amenities which are not often included. We particularly appreciated the many small details which make a stay pleasant: tatami mats for the beach, umbrellas, good books on local flora and fauna, binoculars, good sheets, and much more. The home is perfectly shown in the photos. It is a ways outside of Hilo, in an area that is quite convenient to many of the sights on the eastern side of the Big Island. The information provided was comprehensive and accurate, and helped in knowing what to do and see. You should know that cell phone service (AT&T) is unreliable at the home, though Verizon cell coverage is fine. There is a landline with free calls to continental US, and wireless internet access, so this was not at all missed. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
Loved our stay at the house - good sized, clean, comfortable, well-stocked, convenient to many attractions. Pictures don't do the house justice - so much nicer! Would definitely recommend this property to others. Two most favorite activites were Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden in Papaikou and a Lava Boat Tour through Lava Ocean Tours.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely home situated in a quiet neighborhood. A real plus is a view of the ocean cliffs across the street, which can be viewed from the wide lanai at the front of the house. The photos really don't do justice to the house--it is absolutely lovely. The owner is very responsive and made sure all of our needs were taken care of. We were primarily there for birding, and this residence is in a perfect location for that--about midway between Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a private retreat on the Big Island.

Our lovely spacious home is located in the Puna district of the Big Island. A short auto trip to the south takes you to the Kapoho Tide Pools, the large, free ocean front hot pool in Ahalanui Park, and through a lovely area that includes Lava Trees State Park. A day trip to the volcano (one hour away) can easily be done without facing any city traffic.

East Hawai'i is a fascinating place to visit. It provides a lush landscape, incredible geological sights (a big mahalo to Pele), a wide variety of activities, and a place to rest and rejuvenate. There aren't that many live volcanoes in the world and how many of them can you actually walk around on? In the area are many small farms producing plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits throughout the year. Visiting the various flea\farmers markets can be quite rewarding - just wait until you see the avocadoes - always ripe and the size of a large fist - yum. Papayas too, at 3 for a dollar. Enjoy your stay and when you return home, please feel free to pack and take with you all of the Aloha you can carry.
