At a perfect 1200 feet elevation, you'll enjoy warm tropical days & delightfully cool nights year round. Nighttime showers usually ending before dawn keep our hillsides green.

David & Nora are longtime residents of Hilo. David is a master wood bowl turner and built our homes and gardens here in Hilo. Nora is an CNS, MSN, RN, traveler, animal lover. We lived in Alaska for 18 fine years prior to moving back to Hawaii to raiser our family of a son and 2 daughters. Love our home here in Waiakea Uka and sharing it with friends and family!

Nora Waters purchased this house in 1999

We found this 3 acre Waiakea Uka property after months of searching on the east side of the Big Island. It is a dream come true for us to be able to live her and share it. The climate is wonderful; the breezes balmy and the night delightfully cool. We love animals: our llama Merlin, dwarf Nigerian goats, chickens, 2 dogs and cats, and so do our guests. We live a casual life, grateful for all we have. We work hard to keep everything clean & welcoming for our guests!

Sunny days, cool nights, nightly rains that keep Hilo GREEN! The many rare palms, our bee hive, our ponds and lotus flowers, and other seasonal bloomers: orchids, vireyas of many colors, ti, hibiscus, brugmansia. David's wood shop. Beautiful walks up the hill and grand views of the ocean from Hilo Bay to Kapoho lighthouse. The company of friends, family, animals and the god sent trades that keep us a unique spot on earth. The lovely drive up to the house with striking views of Mauna Kea, Panewa Forest, & Hilo Bay. Driving to work at 6am is a joy, and how many people can say that? We are grateful for this very special spot and hope you enjoy its unique perspective on East Hawaii.

Very accommodating hosts and beautiful, clean home and wonderful grounds.

We arrived a day early (our mistake, completely) and Dave and Nora could not have been more accommodating. They put us up in the bed and breakfast for the night, which was lovely - spotlessly clean and roomy for two adults and two children. The next day they rushed to get Noe's Nest ready for us hours before the usual check-in time, accommodating us so our children could take their naps at their regular times. Noe's Nest was also very roomy, with a terrific porch that we used almost daily. The grounds are alive with the most loving and gentle cats and dogs, and our children adored playing with them and seeing the koi fish and the goats. Nora took a lot of time with us and especially with our kids, showing us all the animals - and helping our children feed many of them. This is an especially wonderful place for families. It is very safe (there is hardly any traffic once you are on the property), and the animals really keep the children entertained. It's also a great learning experience for the kids. We highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Hello Alysa and Gunnar! It was great having you and your two little ones to visit us! We appreciated the opportunity to visit with you and get to know you while you visited our animals and gardens and ponds.
I really loved seeing the children's reactions to the new baby goat, April and all of our animal buddies. What a great chance to share what we love with other like minded folks. Please come back again! We will miss you! Aloha, Nora & Dave

We stayed 3 nights at Noe's Nest and it was everything we could have asked for in a vacation rental. The house is beautiful and clean, and was just right for our family of five. The master bed is large and comfortable, and the guest room can easily sleep four kids or adults.
The house was fully stocked with everything including spices, cooking oil dish soap in the kitchen, and shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the bathroom. You don't have to bring any of these things with you, and don't have to worry about buying these things at the store first thing after a long journey. It was like arriving home after a trip!
The grounds are lush and beautiful! My 8-year old twin girls and 5 year old daughter had a great time wondering around and exploring. They were never inside! We did not have to worry about TV and iPad at all. They fed the goats with Nora, the owner, checked out the hatching chicks, learnt about the sheep and the lama, saw lizards, and enjoyed petting the two dogs and several cats who waited for us loyally to arrive 'home' in the evening. The owners live on the same property, are very helpful and friendly, and available when needed.
The house is only a short drive up from Hilo, and is not far at all from the beaches and Volcano National Park. If you don't insist on staying right on the beach, Noe's Nest is definitely a nice place to rent. Thank you Nora!

Owner's Response: Monika thank you for visiting us at Noe's Nest! We enjoyed your whole familyand especially loved being able to provide the experience of a small farm for your daughters! This week Heidi had her little baby goat and we named her April! April has a pet abandoned 1/2 size chicken who followed her around and eats next to her. I wish the kids had met her! Aloha, Nora and Dave at Noe's Nest

Our Home Away From Home!

I was in Hawaii for 11 weeks for work and had my 10 year old daughter with me and Noe's Nest was our home away from home. We loved coming home to the country, driving up and up the hill past fields of cows and gorgeous flowers and trees, to be greeted by "our dogs" MacKenzie and Kiwi. It was so much fun for my daughter to grab a banana to run back down the drive to say hello to the llama, Merlin, and the goats. We went to sleep to a chorus of frogs and woke up to the distant sunrise over the ocean and the birds singing. Our home was beautiful open space and Nora refreshed the beautiful orchids in every room when the blooms went by. We had everything we could possibly have needed and loved every minute of our stay. We still reminisce about our "pets" and miss them and Hawaii. A big, huge 'thank you' to Nora and Dave for our fabulous stay!
Owner's Response: Dear Francesca & Lea! Dave and I miss you and so do McKenzie, Kiwi and Ms. Whiney Bijou! I'm so glad you had the opportunity to love our place and enjoy the real simple Big Island life. We look forward to your return someday soon. Please know you are always welcome here! Much aloha, Nora and David

What a sweet place for our HONEYMOON!

What do you want for a honeymoon? We wanted a place to relax, be alone and only come out when we felt like it. Noe's Nest was perfect. We were welcomed, then no one bothered us. The country was lovely, the temperature wonderful, and the nights cool and cozy. Wow. The best place for our honeymoon was right here at Noe's Nest. Thank you!

..is something we'll remember forever. Those tiny White Eye birds and the pretty green finches, and the sassy brightCardinal family!Really just loved hanging out on the lanai, morning, noon and night. Hard to get tired of that experience...its something I'll not see in Ireland.

Your house is beautiful, comfortable and extremely clean. Love the bright colors of the walls, like looking at beautiful flower petals. We hope to come back soon! ALoha to Dave and Nora!~
