OCEANFRONT PLANTATION HOME - ON THE WORLD FAMOUS HAMAKUA HERITAGE COAST / N HILO

Hilo Estate Rental Photos and Description

Private Residence; Luxurious 3-bedroom 3.5-bath Oceanfront Plantation Style Home

Built in 2012, and designed to embody the Hawaiian Sugar Plantations of the early 1900s, this private oceanfront estate allows you to enjoy the grandeur of the once thriving sugar industry that lined the Hamakua Coast, between Hilo and Honokaa to the north. Reminiscent of the large plantation estates, this home will allow you to immerse yourself within the beauty of the Big Island of Hawaii with its entire splendor overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The Big Island of Hawaii holds many treasures for one to see, and this location offers adventure and abundance - all within walking distance or just a short leisurely drive along the historic coastline. Enjoy the nearby majestic waterfalls, the tropical botanical gardens, or maybe take them all in on a zip-line adventure ...it's all right here and awaiting your arrival!

The main house of this private estate, known as Palua 'K Plantation, is a 3-story 3-bedroom 3.5-bath home, fully furnished and designed with luxury and comfort in mind. The upper floor has two master bedrooms complete with king sized beds, separate baths, covered lanais, and open air viewing decks. On the main level there is a third bedroom with a queen sized bed, full kitchen, and cozy den. Also on the main level is a beautiful 2-story great room with a formal dining room and living room, plus expansive wrap-around lanais. No matter where you are within the home you will experience gorgeous ocean views, stunningly scenic hillsides, and majestic Mauna Kea - our long dormant northern volcano. And, did we mention that there is an exercise gym, bonus room, laundry services, and a full bath at the bottom level.

Every room of this home is luxuriously appointed so that you can relax and enjoy this residence as your own. For your added comfort, there is a resident reception staff located in a separate structure 24-hours a day / seven days a week. Relax and be assured that your arrival and check-in will go as smoothly as possible!

Around the home and on this estate there are numerous viewing decks, garden walkways, and coconut/banana/exotic fruit lined paths ...pick some fresh fruit, when in season, and enjoy the taste of the islands! Or, take a short walk down to the spectacular cliff-edge landing - once part of the sugar plantation's sugarcane staging area. This ocean lookout over the ocean will take your breath away! Here you can enjoy the rolling waves while sitting at picnic tables under the trees and watch the whales & dolphins (in season) jumping almost as if they are under your feet.

Now if the great outdoors is your interest, the adventures of the Big Island will continue in all directions from here. Just across the street and up the slope, two zip-line companies offer breathtaking rides over the Umauma Falls and Botanical Gardens. ...or just walk among the cows, goats and sheep that dot the hillsides. To the south and just over the bridge is the site of the old Hakalau Sugar Company, and the public beach lined with coconut trees swaying in the breezes, locals fishing, and surfers riding the waves. This makes for a nice walk from the house, maybe 2-3 miles round trip by foot or a short drive by car.

For more sites within the immediate area, we also recommend a visit to the famous Akaka Falls State Park just a few minutes to the south. Experience the sweet smells of tropical flowers and the mist from the grand ~450ft waterfall. Traveling to Akaka Falls takes you through an old plantation town called Honomu with its historic storefronts still in operation today. Enjoy great bakery treats at Mr. Ed's, or other fine foods at one of the local outlets. And if you are looking for a bigger town center, shops and restaurants then continue south to Hilo. Hilo is the main city of east Hawaii, and there are ample places for shopping, eating, or site seeing. We might also recommend the Hilo Farmers Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays with lots of fresh fruits & vegetables and many other fine crafts. Continuing on south another ~45 minutes, and you will find Volcano National Park. Here the volcano named Kilauea (which has been erupting continuously since 1983) has active lava flows - a must see if you are on the Island of Hawaii!

If the cattle ranch lands and horseback riding are more your interests we suggest you drive north, but make sure to stop in Laupahoehoe and take the scenic drive down water’s edge to the breathtaking beach and park, this location was also was the site of the devastating tsunami of 1946. We highly recommend visiting the Old Railroad Station located within Laupahoehoe where you will find a wealth of information about the sugarcane plantations and the railroad that once connected the Hamakua Coast from Hilo at the south point and up towards Honokaa and the Waipio Valley at the northern tip. Watch the train museum video if you can, it’s worth the wait! And now that you know all about The Hamakua Heritage Coast, proceed onwards and continue north to either Waipio valley (also known as the Valley of The Kings), or up the mountain to the cattle ranching town of Waimea—yee haw :-). Horseback riding anyone? And did we mention there is great food up this way too?!

Highway 19 (also known as Hawaii Belt Road) runs by the estate and if you stay on this road in either direction you'll find your way back home. By simply connecting to the other local highways, one can easily connect to any of your desired local destinations from here, or continue on to all of the other towns and cities of the Big Island of Hawaii!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful house!! It was the perfect way to spend the second week of our honeymoon. We appreciated the fact your home was clean, nothing was broken & lots of extra amenities were available.

We would certainly stay at your home again on a future visit to the Big Island! Thanks again Brett for sharing your gorgeous home with Heather & I.

Palua 'K Plantation Company, which means dual or double 'K in the Hawaiian language, was named after the two owners. As the current guardians or care-providers of this wonderful strip of land, their aim was to bring back the look and feel of the once thriving sugar plantations that lined the beautiful Hamakua Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The owners have lived and worked on the islands since 1983, with many friends and family members here, and now occasionally they find themselves traveling for work to Japan, Korea or China, and of course the US mainland is always on the list as well.

Please join everyone here to enjoy the wonders of Hawaii, to share and respect the beautiful Hawaiian people with their cultures and treasures that are the Islands of Hawaii.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a fabulous week here. The house is everything, and more, than what's outlined on the website. Everything was spotless and in working order. Lots of thoughtful extra things where waiting for us throughout the house. The kitchen was very well stocked and we enjoyed a number of meals on the patio while enjoying the sound of the waves and the gorgeous view of the ocean. The house is located about 15 minutes north of Hilo via a good highway. We enjoyed being away from the hustle & bustle of the city but still being only a short drive away from everything we needed. The owner was great to deal with! We would definitely stay at this home again & highly recommend it to others!!

January Trip

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazing, and the owner was easy to work with. This was the best trip to the islands ever, and I have traveled to all the islands many times. We got every morning to farm fresh fruit grown on the property and watched the whales from the lanai. If you want to zip line you can walk across the street, or if that is not your cup of tea you can walk upcountry to the Umauma falls. We also walked down to the beach and found a great place to lay in the sun. If you like to go for a drive I suggest the scenic drive toward Hilo and don't forget to stop and taste the home made ice cream. It was amazing.. Enjoy and I will for sure go back again. It was restful, and an adventure.

*****The best oceanfront vacation rental on the Big Island*****

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for the perfect vacation rental in paradise, this is the place, don't bother looking further. The Palua K exceeded my expectations, so much that I stayed there on two separate occasions, I will surely stay there again. I will preface this about the owners; they lovingly maintain the property and made this the perfect "home" for my vacation.

It's a comfortable upscale base camp to explore the Big Island with places such as Umauma Falls (minutes away), nearby inland and coastal towns full of Hawaiian culture, great boutique shops, farmers markets, botanical gardens, artisan's communities and tons of great restaurants. Just get in the car and explore, you can't go wrong with any direction you choose. This is a great location to discover the island. I suggest getting the Guide to the Big Island; it's the most comprehensive book on the Big Island. This is the best way to experience the REAL Hawaii, not all the typical tourist spots.

When you drive up to the property, you experience the lush tropical delights growing on the trees. Then you see the house with a fabulous spin on plantation-island architecture. Then you go inside via the grand double doors, up a few steps and OMG a view of the ocean that will take your breath away. The interior is a visual delight, beautifully furnished and appointed with great spaces to enjoy. I love to cook, and with local farmers' markets for fresh veggies and fruits, having that gourmet kitchen and outdoor cooking area to play in was a plus for me. Having a nice glass of wine and dinner out on the lanai overlooking the ocean with friends, well, words just cannot describe it. The home has all the comforts and extras to make your stay perfect. After a long day of hiking in the rainforest, it was nice to have that spa tub to relax in. The spacious bedrooms have wonderful beds and the sounds of the ocean at night just whisk you off into slumber land. In the morning, you can enjoy the sounds of local birds while watching whales from your personal lanai. And if you feel the need, there is an exercise room.

Seriously, I could never stay in a hotel or a one room B&B on the Big Island after staying at the Palua K, enjoying a whole house right on the ocean smack dab in the middle of paradise makes for a perfect vacation. Oh, and did I forget to mention the ocean observation deck…I could go on and on…you have to experience this place yourself, it will make your Big Island experience beyond memorable.

Wow, the activities list seems endless ...walking to the local waterfalls, gardens, beachfronts or maybe trying something a little more adventurous like riding a zip-line, snorkeling in the lagoons, or wind surfing the ocean waves - these activities are just a few of the things within walking distance! And then just a short drive from here there are horseback riding tours, volcano eco-adventures, mountain biking, and even local golf outings. Or, maybe food is on the mind? ...try visiting exotically grown mushrooms, macadamia nut farms, or the volcano winery. Sunset luaus are also in abundance, and great restaurants can be found in all directions too! And please don't feel your activities are limited to warm tropical environments only, as there are eleven distinct climate zones on the Big Island of Hawaii - take a trip up to the top of Mauna Kea, or better yet, take a helicopter ride around the island's cliffs, valleys, and volcanos ...flights leave from Hilo or Kona area every day of the week! There is so much to see and do here on the Big Island; adventure awaits you at every turn!!
