Stately sitting atop a 26 acre former sugar mill plantation, lays the tranquility of the Old Sugar Mill Plantation. Ideally located 11 miles north of Hilo along the scenic Hamakua coast, this elegantly appointed seven bedroom home epitomizes the true Hawaiian spirit of aloha in a beautiful, totally relaxing setting. Imagine yourself spending a morning on your private lanai watching humpback whales as they suddenly breach the beautiful waters of the Hamakua coast or enjoying a cocktail with a loved one next to the fabulous waterfall and A’lia stream that flows through the center of the property. Walk through the lush orchards of the property and pick fresh oranges, bananas, passion fruit, rambutan, longon, papaya and many other fruits and vegetables. Enjoy postcard like views of not only the beautiful ocean but also Mauna Kea at its towering 13,796 feet, tropical birds and a view of the stars unlike anything you have ever encountered. Be our guests and see why the Old Sugar Mill Plantation plays a big part in making Hawai'i no ka 'oi (The Best).

Mahalo nui loa!
Steve and I are truly blessed to be not only residents of the Big Island but to have the opportunity to manage such an incredible home for our dear friend. Helen, the owner, shares our compassion in ensuring our guests feel the true spirit of Aloha while staying at the Old Sugar Mill Plantation. So that our incoming guests know, in Hawai'i, we like to hug a lot! So if you reach out to shake a hand here, don't be surprised if they give you a hug in return. While you are here, you are family! It's the Hawaiian way of life.
Steve and Julie Cox purchased this house in 2013
We felt as though this home was all about spending quality time with family and friends. Walking the surrounding 26 acres brings on such a feeling of tranquility and amazes one at the beauties Hawai'i has to offer. While on the island, we love to spend time on the front lanai 'talking story' about Hawai'i, good times and our journeys to come.
There are few large homes like this Hawaii. It makes for the perfect family, corporate or event location.. You can prepare your own delicious meals in the spacious and modern kitchen as well as tour the acreage and pick your own fresh fruits straight from our orchards.
Copied from guest email - I am so happy with my decision to rent the Old Sugar Mill Plantation. I am an activities coordinator at an International Language school in Waikiki, and this is the first trip I have planned to the BI. In total our group was 22 people and the house was absolutely perfect! I could not have asked for a better location or a more beautiful house. The bedrooms are all so beautiful, the house clean, the 26 acres of land AMAZING! Unfortunately we were so busy we didn't have a whole lot of time to enjoy all of the property, but the waterfall is definitely a bonus. Most times I rent hotel rooms for our groups, but this house was a hit with the students. Everyone enjoyed cooking dinner together in the beautiful kitchen and getting to relax in the peaceful atmosphere. I could go on and on about this place, but ultimately it was the ideal place to bring a group as large as mine. Steve thank you for making us feel at home and being so helpful throughout the whole process! Mahalo! And I am sure you will be seeing us again!
our family, from grandparents to an eight year old, thoroughly enjoyed our week here. The house is by no means old, is wonderfully spacious with quiet areas for all, large rooms with ensuite, comfortable beds, peace and quiet, open landscape, abundant birds, views of ocean and mountain. Room for the kids to run outside. The kitchen worked well for feeding the family, and the large table was great for the jig saw puzzle. For a family reunion, it was great. Hilo is not far, and there are several attractions nearby. Steve was welcoming and helpful.
Steve and Julie, we had an awesome time at the sugar mill plantation! In spite of Iselle's weather we couldnt have asked for a more beautiful place to stay. We found everything nice and clean, beds comfortable to sleep in and the views of ocean breathe taking!!! We drove just minutes into Hilo but some distance for other things but that did bother us a bit.
You both were very nice and friendly to us all and answered all our questions. Thanks for checking on us after the storm! ;-) We hope to someday return to the Big Island and we would definitely love to stay at the old sugar mill plantation! Mahola Nui Loa!!!
This rental property is on a fabulous 26 acres. The house is awesome, well kept, newly remodeled, and the property manager is spectacular.
The view is breath taking and we will stay at the rental house every time it is available.
We used this property as our base location for our mission in Hilo. If you rent this property you will be 100% satisfied.
We loved staying here - it was hard to go! Very very clean house and property. Property managers - very friendly, communication before and during vacation was excellent. They are willing to answer any questions you may have. We loved the property (back yard) several acres of fresh fruit. I would recommend this place to anyone planning to stay around Hilo. A+ to Steve and Julie - - we loved our time with you. Thanks for making us feel at "home"!
Being Hawai'i, the list of things to do and places to visit are nearly endless:
Picturesque Waipio Rim Valley is a short 45 minute drive up the scenic Hamakua Coast.
Akaka Falls State Park with its towering 422 waterfall is only 15 minutes away.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park offers great hiking and sightseeing. It is about an hour away and offers a full day or more of journeys.
Nani Mau Gardens is on the edge of Hilo and offers 22 acres of beautiful gardens to tour.
Waimea, the Hawaiian Cowboy town, is a must see during your stay. It is an hour away and sits at 2700 feet where the weather is a little cooler. Watch a rodeo here for great family fun.
The home itself sits on the edge of the quaint, seaside town Pepeekeo. Being only 15 minutes from Hilo, it offers guests the opportunity to relax in a quiet, relaxing home near the ocean yet still be close to great shopping, dining and sightseeing.
