WOW OCEANFRONT ALOHAHOUSE-LIVE ON THE EDGE-WHALES-DOLPHINS-TURTLES-VIEWS-WOW!

Hilo House Rental Photos and Description

3BR 2BA Home sleeps maximum of 6

The Alohahouse is a spectacular oceanfront property where you will experience breathtaking sunrises, cascading rainbows, dolphin & whale watching all from the comfort of your Hawaiian hale. The property is located just 30 minutes south of Hilo in a private community, Hawaiian Paradise Park, on one of the loveliest bays in East Hawaii where you can walk for miles and see nothing but pristine coastline and lush forest. This quiet and serene property has everything including a length of the house oceanfront covered and tiled lanai. Furnished island style with rattan and wicker, ceiling fans, color TV, CD stereo and washer/dryer. In November 2013, we have put in a BRAND NEW KItCHEN! This home is a great spot to set up base to discover the beauty of the East side of the Big Island. It is just a short dirve to Volcano National Park, Lava Tree State Park, Hilo, Kapoho Tide Pools, botanical gardens, zoo & more. Perfect for a couple or family. I have many repeat guests who love being so close to the ocean! Paradise calls!

The Alohahouse: The oceanfront Alohahouse property sits spectacularly oceanfront on the pristine Puna Coast in the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision just south of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home offers the vacationer an up close and personal ocean experience! You can't get much closer to the ocean without being in it! It lulls you to sleep at night and the sunrises are so incredibly awesome - you will want to get up early even if you are on vacation! In the winter months, you can hear and see the whales that come in quite close because the ocean is deep in front of the property. This is a great spot to catch fish from the bluff and cook right on the barbecue!

Decorated island style with rattan furnishings and overhead ceiling fans in all the rooms, the home stays very comfortable all year! Sometimes you might even need a sweathshirt in the winter months! This home is centrally located and it is just a short drive to Volcano National Park, the Kapoho tide pools, and Hilo International Airport. The location is superb for the traveler wanting to set up base for the ultimate Big Island adventure. The oceanfront lanai is the place you will probably want to hang out after your day trips!

The BRAND NEW kitchen is fully equipped with all your dining needs, all linens are provided, along with soap, and laundry detergent (you won't have time for that though!) There is also an outdoor hot shower to rinse off after surfing, swimming, snorkeling, or hiking the volcano. We provide a cooler for your day outings too!

The cottage on the property is currently long term rented.

Activities:: From the oceanfront lanai you can sun bathe, dine and watch the sea turtles, dolphins and whales frolic. Explore the coastline tide pools or fish off the bluff. A short distance from blacksand beaches, hot ponds, waterfalls, golf, kayaking, Volcano National Park, shops and restaurants. Swimming, surfing, diving, fishing, snorkeling, or relax at nearby Isaac Hale Park, Pohoiki Bay, MacKenzie State Park, Puala'a Warm Springs, fabulous Kapoho Point, Kalani Honua Culture Center. Shopping, banking, medical facilities, restaurants, etc. in nearby quaint Pahoa Town. Have the best of both worlds: peace and serenity combined with as much activity as you feel like! Olympic size swimming pool in Pahoa (free!), fine restaurants in Hilo, Pahoa, & Keaau! Be sure to catch the Makuu farmers market on weekends, or the Hilo farmer's market! And we find 'Uncle Robert's' In Kalapan a fantastic way to have dinner on Wednesday evenings. It is located at the end of the 'Red Road,' Highway 137 in Kalapana. We find it's better than a luau with wonderful Hawaiian musicians, arts, crafts, many local food vendors. This is a must on your list of things to do in East Hawaii!

If this home is not available for your dates, please check out my other vacation rental on this website, listing number 304974. The Pualani Home in Kapoho is a wonderful place to stay as well and sleeps a maximum of 4 guests!

Guestbook comments from the owner
This is a place to get away from the hustle & bustle of frantic life on the mainland. The pounding of the surf, croaking of the frogs, cooing of the doves offer soothing comfort and relaxation. Turn off your cell phones and laptops and ENJOY! Don't miss the ice cream at Mauna Loa Mac Farm.



Since we have stayed in both Pat & Andy's homes, we can't pick a favorite - the causal calm of Pualani in Kapoho and wonderful pounding of the surf at the Dolphin Bay are both great! Hawaii is now a preferred destination.

We love the Big Island of Hawaii and try to visit as often as we can. We live in beautiful Morro Bay, California, where we do property management. Our hobbies and interests include swimming, bicycling, traveling, concerts, water skiing and enjoying our son and our daughter who live nearby.

Pat Starkie purchased this house in 2004

We fell in love with this home because of its proximity to the ocean and the feeling of being on the 'edge of the world.' The air is so pure here and the night sky is star-filled. This is a very special place!

This is the place with the very HIGH RELAX factors. With the oceanfront length of the house lanai, you can watch the waves with the dolphins, turtles, whales in the winter months, for hours! You can catch fish off the bluff and cook it right there on your built-in oceanfront barbecue. Just a short drive to town for groceries, and a great place to come back to after day adventures to Volcano National Park, botanical gardens, farmer's markets, snorkeling in Kapoho, and so much more!! Paradise Found!

Best time of our lives!

  • 5 of 5
This house is wonderful & has everything you might need. It is well located, spacious, clean, and has a fabulous view. We did not get to see whales or dolphins but we did see turtles & nene. We spent lotd of time walking along the cliffs & climbing rocks and loved falling asleep to the sounds of frogs & waves crashing. Pat was very easy to communicste with snd returned our deposit promptly. We would choose this home again in a heartbeat.
The whole area is very laid back and not very "touristy" but there is plenty of stuff close by to keep busy if you want to. Pat can give you lots of great info about things to do nearby.
This area really is the most beautiful place I have ever been and everyone was very nice.

Owner's Response: We keep our home well stocked so you really do feel like you are in your own Hawaiian hale! This coastline is one of the most beautiful I have seen, and I love sharing it with others!! What makes the home so unique is just how close to the ocean you are, and the beautiful lava formations - you can hike in either direction along the oceanfront bluff and experience wonderful tropical air, dolphins, turtles, nene, & whales in the winter. Truly a Hawaii paradise away from the tourists!

White Wash Ocean Spray

  • 5 of 5
Fresh seafood on the BBQ overlooking beautiful turquoise waves. If you're lucky, you may catch glimpse of a sea turtle, dolphin, or whale from the backyard. Gentle sea spray brings it all to life to show how close and real this dreamlike place is!

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this beautiful ocean front house. The house was spacious and clean. The kitchen provided everything we needed to cook our own meals. We loved watching the whales and turtles from the lanai and rocks in front of the house. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves was great. Pat, the owner was so helpful and communication was great. The location of the house is great for exploring Hilo and the volcano national park. We only stayed 3 nights, but would have loved to stay longer in this home away from home!

Owner's Response: We love to share this fabulous location with others who want to be close to the ocean, and also in good proximity to all of the amazing things to do and see on the east side of the Big Island. I make it a priority to communicate promptly with my guests. We want vacationers to have a fabulous time!

So close to the ocean!

  • 5 of 5
We wanted relaxation and that's exactly what we got! Turtle sightings daily, listening to and watching the crashing waves and the clouds go by. House has amazing views - we felt like we were on a boat! Patio is perfect for just relaxing, shade or sun, whatever you feel like while watching the waves and clouds. Great spot for visiting many places on this side of the island. Owner gives many thoughtful suggestions of things to do. Can't wait to go back :)

Owner's Response: The relax factor is very high at this home!! We are always so happy to hear about guests who love the proximity to the ocean with the feeling of being on a ship!! It is a fabulous place to return to after a day of Big Island adventures. Discounts for repeat guests too! It is always my goal to have happy travelers!

Beautiful house, amazing location

  • 5 of 5
This is a quintessential Hawaiian house with a lovely lanai and master bedroom overlooking the ocean. The house is very comfortable - plenty of room for the five of us who stayed there. The ocean watching was spectacular. We had numerous sightings of sea turtles. The house is about 10 minutes off of the main highway and south of Hilo. It is a perfect location for visiting Volcanoes National Park and the amazing tidal pools and beaches south of Pahoa. There is excellent snorkeling nearby at the Kapoho tidal pools.

Owner's Response: The location of this home is the best!! When we say oceanfront, we mean oceanfront!! And it is in a great location to make the day trips to Volcano National Park, Kapoho tide pools, farmer's markets, botanical gardens & more. And it is always wonderful to relax next to the ocean after fun-filled days of adventure.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Dolphin House for two nights. As soon as we walked into the vacation rental, we knew we had shortchanged ourselves by staying there only for two days! We saw 4 turtles minutes after walking onto the lanai! The ocean view is too incredible ... no photos can do it justice.We were two couples and a 5-year-old and the three rooms were spacious enough for us. The little one enjoyed the third room ... we hadn't seen dolphins during our trip but he consoled himself by looking at the dolphin painting in the third room! The kitchen did the job ... the house is old but it's comfortable and the location makes up for any minor inconveniences. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Two nights isn't enough to get the relax factor!! But so glad you enjoyed the home anyway. Built in 1980, it is an older home but we definitely keep it up, and in today's world, you would not be allowed to build this close to the ocean. That being said, you will definitely enjoy the oceanfront location with the most beautiful views south and north! Watch turtles, dolphins, & whales during the winter months. This is an oceanfront Hawaiian beach bungalow that will make you say "WOW" when you walk in the front door! Experience a slice of Hawaii that many never get to see, and what a great price for your own piece of paradise!
