Pepeekeo House Rental Photos and Description
Stylish Private Home With Ocean Views, Hot Tub, Near Hawaii Botanic Gardens
[!!!! Just Released back onto the market after an extended stay to a consulting group.] Ono house is perched above onomea bay on the beautiful hamakua coast scenic drive, six miles north of hilo. New to the rental market, ono house is a secluded hideaway with ocean, garden and rainforest views. Flowering royal poinciana trees, monkey pod trees, palms, coffee and tropical flowers festoon two acres, while another acre is anopen lawn for games or sunbathing with a mai tai. The secluded location and surrounding acreage grant a high degree of privacy and the electric-gated entry assures security. A caretaking couple lives in a cottage on the property and can be helpful or invisible, as you wish. The most repeated description by visitors is 'serene'.
Within walking distance is the old donkey trail to ocean’s edge at wildly scenic onomea bay. The famed hawaii tropical botanical garden is a short walk, and two cafes and an organic tea farm are less than 2 miles away. Akaka falls, rainbow falls, umauma botanical gardens, ziplines and historic downtown hilo with its fish and farmer’s markets are all within a 20-minute drive. Kohala coast beaches are 60 miles away. Hawaii volcanoes national park is an hour to the south and waipio valley an hour to the north. Current lava eruptions are easily visible flowing into the ocean, a status which can change.
The three-level house has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and additional rooms for extra sleeping space. The top level master suite views ocean and rain forest. A large bath and an office, suitable for a child’s room, connect to the master bedroom. The easy-access main floor has a kitchen, dining area, living room, laundry, half bath and a charming garden room. The garden room has a balinese punee bed and can be used as another bedroom, or for relaxing. The lower level opens onto the lower terrace. This level has a full bath, two bedrooms and a large family room with a queen-size sleeper sofa. One bedroom has a queen-sized bed; the second bedroom has a full bed and a twin bed. The house is well-stocked with kitchen equipment, washer and dryer, internet, flat screen tvs, dvds, grill and books, including local guidebooks. An ocean-view hot tub is scheduled for may, 2013, if it doesn’t get delayed by “island time.” island time is contagious; you may find yourselves relaxing at the estate instead of sightseeing.
Ono house, “ono” means “good” in Hawaiian, can comfortably sleep 8+. For more than 8 people remember there are only two full baths, which may be a problem if you bring teens. “pack & play” cribs with bedding are available.

What makes this house unique
I bought this house sight unseen! Situated on nearly 2 acres of gorgeously landscaped property, the house is the perfect home for my own gettaways to Hawaii. We added a lower patio and by late May we'll add a hot tub to the amenities. It is very peaceful here. The birds nest in the monkeypod trees, flowers fill the garden beds, rare palms and bamboo dot the landscape. Inside, we gave the entertainment room a new 'spark' with colorful walls and lots of seating for get togethers. The house is perfect for families, reunions or small business retreats.
