Our new Hawaiian style home is situated on two acres 20 minutes south of Hilo in Hawaiian Paradise Park . The property comes with a private pool and a large patio area that is ideal for entertaining and relaxing. When you enter the house you will immediately enjoy the open design with a great room, a large dining room and sitting area. Our great room has a complete entertainment system with an HDTV and Home Theater Audio System. The house is beautifully decorated with art from local artists. The kitchen is set up for the gourmet cook and is furnished with the most up to date appliances. Our home is tastefully furnished and has everything you need to make your trip memorable. We provide all linens and towels. There is wireless high-speed internet access (bring your laptops and Smart Phones). The property is gated so it is very private. We always feel like we are on a plantation when we stay in our home.
The home has 2 bedrooms with queen beds, a den with a Murphy bed. There are 2 full baths and a private lava built outdoor shower. There is a sunroom/lanai that is perfect for dining and just plain hanging out with your friends and family. We do not use catchment water. We have our own private well to take care of all of your water needs.
If you have a larger crowd, we have a beautiful 1 bedroom (sleeps 2) guest house directly next door. For more information about the guest house see this web page:http://www.vrbo.com/654419.
Our home is located just a short walk from the ocean, where you can hike along the cliffs and trails. The Plantation House location makes a great home base for short trips to Volcano National Park, Hamakua Coast, Akaka Falls, Kahuna Falls, Umauma Falls, Farmers’ Markets and a nearby Black Sand Beach.
There is a welcome manual in the house that shows hikes, restaurants, snorkeling beaches, the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens and much more.

We have just returned from our second stay at this beautiful home. We stayed two weeks this time and enjoyed the pool, the completely stocked kitchen, the nice Weber BBQ, and the openness and relaxing décor of the house. The dining area is open and gracious, with windows all around—a perfect place to entertain friends if you choose to have company in. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with lots of closet space. The ceiling fans keep the temperature nicely adjusted. It is really a lovely place.
We found many places to snorkel and explore nearby, but we were always happy to just get back to our “own” backyard and pool and the comfort of the house.
Luckily, we were there as the lilikoi were ripe and ready to give their bounty. There is nothing like a lilikoi martini, and we could walk right out and collect the fruit just feet from the back door. Bananas were still green, but in abundance and waiting for the next lucky inhabitant.
One of my favorite features is the outdoor shower in the pool enclosure. It is private, but gloriously open to sun and sky and enclosed in natural stone with bromeliads and ferns peeking out here and there. It is equipped with hot & cold water and is a perfect place to rinse after the pool, but I preferred to use it for regular showers rather than the indoor bathrooms—which are also lovely.
We have recommended the house to our friends and would do so for anyone who wants a beautiful, relaxing place to spend vacation.
We stayed here with our two year old son for four weeks and loved it. Perfect in almost every way. We took to daily walks to the ocean, which is exactly one mile to the closest access. (It took us about ten days to figure out the closest spot is the rough roads immediately before and after the Shipman's trailhead gate...might be nice to add a map in the house.) We were a little bummed to find the Shipman beach trail is still closed after the hurricane last fall, but we did brave it on the ocean rocks one day...took us three hours each way with a toddler on the back. Would have been much better if they could fix the trail already. The house and pool were divine. Basically it is a three bedroom with the Murphy bed in the den. Kitchen has everything and we gorged on passion fruits from the yard and never did quite eat them all. Clean and well cared for. We miss it dearly. The dining room with endless windows was my favorite. My only suggestions would be to add a broom and dustpan inside and a small clorthesline under the carport for hanging beach towels and swim suits outside yet out of the night showers. Thank you so much for making our trip so special.
Upon entering this enchanting home, you immediately feel the comfort of home. The owners have put a great deal of thought and time into the appealing decor. All rooms are in muted, tasteful soft colors that immediately help you relax. For example, one bedroom is a light grey/green with sheets, blanket and bedspread all matching the wall color. The second bedroom is done in a similar manner in subtle, dark lavender. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need for cooking, and a gas grill is outside. The appliances are modern, with a laundry room that boasts an efficient full size Maytag washing machine and dryer. The house has many convenient incidentals such as laundry detergent, dryer sheets, coffee, and a variety of tea. First-aid items are in a hall closet. The landscaping surrounding this home is gorgeous, and like the interior of the house, everything is well planned and pleasing to the eye. The ample sized swimming pool has attractive furniture, a cute lava shower, and a small waterfall that produces a soothing murmur.
My husband and I have vacationed in Hawaii six times. Of all our visits, the stay in this particular house has been the most pleasing and relaxing of all residences we have rented. It is built and furnished, both inside and out, with impeccable good taste. It is conveniently located twenty minutes outside Hilo and approximately seven miles from Pahoa. We can confidently say this house is A Little Bit of Paradise within an Island Paradise.
Beautiful home with upgraded appliances and wonderful tiled shower! It is advertised with two bathrooms, but when we arrived, we discovered the other bathroom is outside (covered walkway to the bath/laundry room). But, yes, there are two full bathrooms! Everything we needed was there..dishwashing liquid, dishwasher tabs, washing powder, fabric softner, etc. Unfortunately, due to weather, we were not able to enjoy the pool, but it was gorgeous! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
My family and I had the pleasure of staying here for 2 very relaxing weeks. We even survived a category 1 hurricane. The house was well equipped with all of the essentials. The laundry room and an extra bathroom were located in the carport/garage, and came in handy. The pool and outdoor shower were wonderful at night, and we were serenaded by the coqui frogs. The house was a perfect layout for my family with a big screen tv for the boys and beautiful gourmet kitchen for myself. The yard had fruit trees and beautiful flowers and trees. Highly recommend this property! I'd buy it if I could.....
Just got back from staying here and this place is outstanding. The pictures you see posted here are great, but you really have to be here to see it all. This place is so clean and the landscaping all around is beautiful. We just loved swimming in the pool. If you like to walk, or jog the area is perfect because you have beautiful scenery around and not much cars to worry about. I was born and raised here in Hilo. When I come home I love to see family and to relax. This place will help you to relax. The property is fenced so little ones can play outside.
