“This beautiful 3 bedroom 2 bath home has every thing you need in your home away from home. Granite counters and teak cabinets and an open layout make it a retreat to rest after a long day sightseeing. The backyard is surrounded by an Ohia forest, creating a place of serenity and privacy while cooling off in the in- ground pool. In the evening light up a fire in the outdoor fire pit and enjoy roasting marshmallows while gazing at the stars.
The home is located just 2 blocks from the ocean, where you can walk along the cliffs and trails. In the winter whale watching on the cliffs is a popular local past time.
The nearby historic towns of Kea`au and Pahoa both have restaurants, grocery stores and farmers markets. The snorkeling areas in Kapoho, the hot ponds and the lava viewing area in Kalapana are all with in 20-30 minutes from the home.
The open layout and design of the home makes it accessible for wheel chair guests.”

Lived on the Big Island for 20 years.
We live just down the street and absolutely love this beautiful secluded area.
Maureen Gapp purchased this house in 2010
The privacy is important as well as being in the 'sun belt'. This lot was so unique as it backed up to a beautiful forest of Ohia. The natural wall prevents any neighbors from being behind us, so the privacy is amazing.
Peace and tranquility. My favorite thing to do is to light a campfire and watch the stars. The area is mostly vacation homes and private homes so it's great to be able to walk or bike around withour any traffic.
It is always such a great pleasure when renting a vacation resort to find that it exceeds expectations. We had a wonderful time on the Hilo side of the island and your home is part of our enjoyment. Nice, clean, very spacious, warm pool, we have fond memories of our trip to the Big Island thanks to the comfort of your home. Regards, Eric & family
The four of us enjoyed a week at Maureen and John's home, mahalo. It's in a great location for local exploring Hilo and Puna Districts, but we also made day trips to South Point and Hawi no problem. The home is beautiful and spacious, the kitchen has everything, and the pool and croquet set provided entertainment for our no drive days. Be sure to walk around the neighborhood, there are beautiful homes, the Beach Road cliffs, and lots of aloha.
We come to Hilo often, to see family. We have rented quite a few different houses, this is our favorite so far. The house was beautiful, nice open and airy floor plan.
Awesome saltwater pool. There were two bikes, in really good shape for us to use as well a variety of pool toys and floats, and a few lawn games. Although we did not have an ocean view, which we usually prefer, it was an easy bike ride or walk to the ocean. The master bed was pretty comfy, the other beds not so much.
Would highly recommend!
What an amazing, quiet (aside from the wildlife) home! We loved our stay. The house was very clean and has everything you need. We enjoyed relaxing pool side in the very private back yard. We also loved watching the waves crash against the cliffs just down the road. I would recommend this house to everybody. (Keep in mind that it's on the tropical side so it will rain). We can't wait to go back!
Fabulous holiday home.
Our family of 4 enjoyed staying here for 4 nights with its beautiful swimming pool and spacious living areas. We found it a great base for exploring the east side of the big island, close to Hilo and Volcano.
My wife and I spent 5 wonderful days at this home in early July. Arranging for the rental was simple and Maureen was great to work with. The condition of the home, its layout, the pool, yard, and location were all excellent. Our daily morning runs down Beach Road and Paradise Ala Kai followed by coffee on the Lanai were the perfect start to each day. The home was an ideal location to base our adventures on the East and South sides of the Big Island (ranging from Waipio Valley to Volcano National Park). We also spent 5 days on the Kona side of the island, but with 10 days we still had dozens of sites that we were unable to see. I guess we will have to start planning our return trip. We will certainly consider renting this home again and if we know of anyone headed to the Big Island we will definitely recommend this home as a place to stay. Thanks Maureen!
This is our second staycation here!!! It is close to home yet feels far away! The pool is definitely a highlight because the water is cool yet warm at times which allows for night time swimming under the stars. Thank you Maureen for another fabulous staycation...looking forward to many more!
Kilauea Volcano just 20 minutes away. Kalapana viewing area is easily accessible. Shipman Beach nearby, shopping areas 7 miles from property Hot ponds, whale watching and more.
