Mountain View House Rental Photos and Description
A beautiful 2 bedroom, 1 bath residence set within an ohia and waiwi forest
“Napualanilehua”, Hawaiian for “Heavenly Lehua Blossom”, will serve your vacation needs to a level not customarily felt at vacation rentals.
Sitting at a cool 2400’ elevation, where nights can get down to the 40s and warming up to the comfortable low 80s during the days, Napualanilehua is ideally situated 20 minutes away (17 miles) from Hilo town and 20 minutes away (16 miles) from the world renowned Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Only about 5 minutes off the main highway, Napualanilehua is beautifully located on the back of a ¼ acre of land, in a small subdivision. Nestled within a ohia and waivi forest, Napualanilehua has a large inviting covered deck overlooking a huge front yard where kids could play all day.
Watch the adjacent forest for native Hawks during the day. In the evening, enjoy the uncountable amount of stars and cool clear nights.
Napualanilehua has everything you would need for a comfortable vacation in the mountain side. From a cup of fresh brewed Kona coffee on the covered deck, to reading a book about Hawaii while dressed warmly in the comfortable bathrobes provided, Napualanilehua has an experience waiting for you.
All guests are greeted upon entry with softly playing Hawaiian music. Fresh flower arrangements and a fresh fruit assortment is provided.
The fully equipped kitchen has a range/oven, fridge/freezer, all pots, pans, and serving dishes. Even a coffee maker and toaster is provided.
The living room is fully furnished with reading chairs, a flat screen TV (with satellite programming), a sofa, that when necessary, can be converted to a pull-out full size bed. Vaulted ceilings with a ceiling fan and recessed lights make this room very large and inviting. Wifi is also broadcast throughout the home.
The master bedroom features a large vaulted ceiling, King size bed, two night stands, and table lamps.
The second bedroom features a queen size bed, single night stand, table lamp, and a large vaulted ceiling.
Guests are also encouraged to use the complimentary postcards to keep in touch with friends and family while you are enjoying your stay.
Napualanilehua is very committed to promoting the Island's many products and services. Our fresh flower arrangements are produced locally by a small family business. Fresh fruit awaiting your arrival is hand picked by us the morning of your arrival, available from the many local farmers markets. Napualanilehua even provides sample Kona coffee blends and Hawaiian Macadamia Nut products, when available. As our list continues to expand, we hope you find the local products very exciting.
If you are looking for a place to detach from the rush of normal life, or if you are looking for a convenient location on your vacation that is central to many fine activities, Napualanilehua would be a great pick.

About Taylor & Lehua McMahel
Born and raised on the Island of Hawaii, we wanted to provide guests with an experience they would never forget while visiting this great island.
It has always been a pleasure hosting off island family and friends, and as a result, we decided to open this house to the world.
Why Taylor & Lehua McMahel chose Mountain View
Mountain View has always had an impact in our lives. This residence was the first house designed and built by us. Our family is also from this area. The cool nights, quiet neighbors, close proximity to gas stations, schools, library's, and the Hawaii Volcano National Park made this location our favorite.
What makes this house unique
'Napualanilehua' has a special meaning to us as this was the first home designed and built by us. With new carpets, fresh paint, and new furniture, we have turned this residence into a retreat you would not want to leave.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Directly from Guest Book:
What a lovely location, nestled in the Ohia forest! Taylor & Lehua went the extra mile to make our stay something special. We were lucky enough to see the Merrie Monarch Festivals and catch the spectacular glow of lava in the volcano crater. Unforgettable trip!
