Overview

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!

About Pat Starkie

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

Why Pat Starkie chose Hilo

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!

What makes this house unique

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!

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.

Spectacular :) Plan on renting it again.

  • 5 of 5
It was a wonderful place. Laid out very spaciously. The kitchen was super handy and the washer and dryer were a blessing, especially with 6 of us! There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out and be together and have fun but not feel like we were tripping over each other. And having the ocean right there and being able to hear the waves all day and the adorable frogs at night. It was heavenly. Same price as renting 2 hotel rooms but with so many wonderful extras. Worth it!! Thank you so very much.

Owner's Response: We strive to show vacationers the great value in a home versus a hotel room!! The price for 5 or 6 guests is WAY better than hotel prices and the privacy, ambiance, and amazing oceanfront location is way beyond words! We love happy guests, and strive to make our guests happy!! Mahalo!

OUR 5th STAY AND THE BEST ONE YET!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have take an annual vacation on the Big Island the past 7 years. Initially we would split our time between Kona and Hilo in B&B's. In 2010 we discovered this little blue beach/cliff house where the ocean in the front yard goes all the way to Mexico. It has the best of the best for what we seek in a Hawaiian vacation. Quiet, away from the noise and crowds yet accessible to shopping, restaurants, superb snorkeling and the best Sunday market on the Island. Even the white sand beaches on the Kohala coast are only an hour and a half away. The Puna district represents what we consider "old" Hawaii where the spirit and traditional way of life co-exists with all the modern conveniences (near at hand). We vacation to "get away" from it all. No cell phones or internet. I only use my phone to find my wife in WalMart or Costco. The owners are wonderful hosts and the property managers are first rate. Would we come again? We will be booking visit # 6 (as soon as the bills for #5 are paid)! Michael M.

Owner's Response: It's so great to hear from these guests who love the same things about our home and the area that we love!! Although they choose not to use internet, we do have free wifi at the home, but it is really a wonderful place to try to disconnect!! We look forward to hosting you for visit #6!! Mahalo!

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!
