I grew up in Florida, moved to Alaska and spent 20 years in the nursery business and always dreamed of living in Hawaii. Since 2000, I have called Hawaii home and have houses on both Oahu and the Big Island. We recently purchased this property because of its uniqueness and natural beauty. I am a local farmer and business owner (for more information see; www.alohagreen.com).

Steve Shropshire purchased this estate in 2013

We fell in love with this breathtaking estate. It is truly one of Hamakua's rare gems.

This experience is about luxury, privacy, and serenity. We trust that once you have experienced a piece of our paradise, you will count the days until you return.

Wonderful Hilo Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This private Estate was the perfect place for our Hilo stay. The property sits on a point and has amazing panoramic ocean views. The enormous fenced lot was perfect for the kids to run around and play, and there are no other houses in close proximity so it is very private. The property is about 6 minutes outside of downtown Hilo so close enough to shops and stores if you need it, but definitely a rural, peaceful vibe. The house itself was clean, modern, and has a great guest house for multi- or extended family vacationers. We definitely plan on staying here again!

Incredible house!

  • 5 of 5
As a film director, I've been blessed to have stayed at amazing houses, hotels and locations in my life. This house is truly epic and cinematic - the pictures do not relay the beauty and serenity enough. Steve is absolutely amazing as the host. Whatever the rent is, it's not enough. My wife and I had an amazing restful time here. Thank Steve!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
It would be hard to describe this place without seeming to be over dramatic. However, for us it might be hard to avoid that. It was perfect! There is not much to add when you can go to sleep with the ocean waves hitting your beach and then hear (yes hear) the occasional whale close in at night. Then to see Hilo Bay in the am and again watch the numerous whale sightings and with that enjoy an almost constant breeze all day. Close enough to town and yet far enough away, it met the criteria we looked for for privacy. Well kept, beautiful house inside and out and any questions were answered immediately. Our thanks to Steve and Dylan for their time and help. If we get a chance, we will most certainly be back again. John and Cindy

Exceptional...perfect for privacy and having a great time with family or friends.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in house the 1st week in January, it was the perfect place for us to explore and relax in Hilo. The rooms were so amazing and well kept. We loved that kitchen! Just like the photos. The main bath was also perfect. The main living area was really big and spacious. The fireplace was a great amenity because we had the cold weather and it gave the entire home warmth. The deck is where we spent every morning watching the sunrise. The plants and trees add to the privacy and all around beauty of the property. Even the guest house is awesome for 2 people. All the amenities we needed was there. The owners are what makes this place so special though. They really helped with all our needs. Will definitely book again. Much better deal than staying in Hilo hotels.
