OCEANFRONT CLIFF HOUSE

Hakalau Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Oceanfront 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom

We are renting our Ohana (i.e. guesthouse). The unit is attached to our home, but is very private and doesn't have any shared walls. It is separated from our home by a breezeway and large Lanai. The unit has it's own private entrance and covered parking in attached carport. Ohana is 1000 square feet which includes: 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, living room, dining room and small kitchen (see photographs for more interior details).

This one-of-a-kind property is conveniently located with a private driveway and gate directly off Hawaii Belt Road (Highway 19). The home is surrounded by 3 acres of tropical flora, including fruit trees, palm trees and fishpond with no other home in sight. Extremely private, yet easy to find and located just 13 miles from historic downtown Hilo and 15 miles from the Hilo Airport. This one bedroom, 1 bathroom unit boasts an open floor plan with unobstructed ocean views from the bedroom, the kitchen, the dining room and the living room. It has new bamboo and tile flooring throughout, new granite slab countertops and sinks in the kitchen and bathroom. The unit has the basics for preparing simple meals including an outdoor gas grill.

We are originally from California, but have always had a love for Hawaii. I spent childhood vacations visiting my grandfather in Maui and we've been coming to the Big Island to visit my father since he retired here in 2000. My husband and I are both serving in the US Navy.

Our managers, Sandy & Bob are very attentive and live about a mile away if you need anything during your stay.

Sandy & Bob Nutt purchased this bungalow in 2012

My husband and I bought this home from my Father who lived here for 12 years. He bought it from the owners who built the house in 1979, on property which they acquired in the plantation era. Historically the property was the site of the Wailea Sugar Mill, which closed in 1944.

For us, it was all about the view. We love waking up to beautiful sunrises over the water and seeing waves crash along the rugged coastline. Maybe we're biased, but we honestly feel like we've seen a lot of homes in our area, even other oceanfront homes, and we've yet to find one with a better view.

We hope you will come stay and fall in love with it like we have!

Oceanfront Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose this spot for part of our honeymoon. The managers were great to work with! This house provided every thing we could need for our stay and was perfectly decorated. The accommodations are excellent, the house was very clean and cozy. The directions that Bob and Sandy gave us were extremely detailed and we found it with no stress or difficulty (a real relief when driving in a new place). We found the views and the seclusion that we needed, and we were very pleased that no one was staying in the house next to the guest rental. This place is perfect for anyone wanting to experience the real Hawaii, and it's a great location for exploring the Island! For anyone staying here, we recommend going to the Abundant Life Natural Foods store in Hilo and stocking up on organic groceries :) Thanks Bob and Sandy!

Owner's Response: You are very welcome. We are so pleased that you found the seclusion you wanted for your honeymoon and had such a special place to start your marriage together. You are right, you really do get to experience the real Hawaii in this area away from the resort scene. The natural beauty is this area is amazing and we're so glad you got to enjoy it too. Thank you again for staying in the ohana and hopefully we'll see you again some day.

Quiet and beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 3 nights on our 10th anniversary at the Cliff House. What an amazing place! The photos are very accurate and the privacy is wonderful (no one was in the main house during our stay). On the first morning of our stay we saw a pod of more than 30 dolphins playing for over an hour in the bay beneath the property. What a wonderful treat. The property is about 25 minutes from the City of Hilo and an hour from the Volcano National Park. We found it a great base to explore the island and come home to a quite private retreat. We would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Wow! What a treat to see all those dolphins. We never get tired of seeing them, it's always a special sight to enjoy. Of course it was made even more special for your 10th anniversary and on your first morning. We certainly look forward to seeing you again and who knows what you'll see next time.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for a week and wished we had stayed longer. The property was beautiful, quiet, romantic, clean and well maintained. I would recommend to a friend or relative. Glad to have met Sandy and browse the art Gallery. Bob was very nice and helped us with working the TV. Hope to be back real soon.

Wow what a view!

This is a wonderful home to stay in. We had wind one night and wasn't sure if we were safe, but it all turned out well.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you loved the view. I believe we might have had some gusts of wind that night for a few hours up to 25 mph. Like the weather everywhere here on the island, it's totally unpredictable but still beautiful. Happy Anniversary

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a couple nights during our honeymoon. An amazing and romantic spot in Hilo. Booking was easy and the owners were great with communication before we arrived, and when we were there. It is a guest house that is attached to the main house, but we didn't notice anyone in the main house during our stay. The view at this place is sensational. Would definitely recommend for a romantic place to stay while on vacation.

I reviewed some of our favorite local attractions on gogobot so you can check those out and you can see what other people are saying about them. Locally, I think Kolekole Beach Park, the little town of Honomu, and Akaka falls are must sees (and all located in or on the way to Honomu, 2 miles from our house). If you want to do something adventurous try ziplining (we recommend Skyline Akaka Falls - also located in Honomu). Downtown Hilo is 12 miles away and has just about everything you'll need in the way of restaurants, grocery stores, museums, and other outdoor activities. The nearest airport is 14 miles away, also in Hilo.
