Pepeekeo House Rental Photos and Description
Beautiful & Clean 2BR/2BA Onomea Scenic Drive, Ocean Views, 10 min to town

Enjoy Hawaii's beautiful ocean views and the tropical landscaping in this private home with gated entry. Our open-styled kitchen/family room with high ceilings and skylights provides for great family time and spacious comfort to relax in. Spend hours on the wrap-around deck enjoying the tropical breezes and Hawaiian ambiance.

Sit back and have breakfast on the lanai and be mesmerized by our spectacular sunrises, watch for the humpback whales from the patio, or see the cruise ships make their way toward Hilo. Be dazzled by our incredible night sky and plan for an evening of stargazing high upon Mauna Kea.

Centrally located in East Hawaii on the Onomea Scenic Route, often called the most beautiful place on the Big Island, you will find yourself in old Hawaii. Not a room, not a section, but the whole house is yours to relax in, with the heart of Hilo town about 10 minutes away, serene Akaka Falls and Honomu Town ten minutes away, and the must see Volcano National Park a scenic 45 minutes away.

The Hamakua coastine's best-kept secret is our unique tradewind weather that encourages most of the rainfall to occur in the early mornings and evenings, leaving the day fresh and clean with sunshine and breezes. You will not be disappointed by the colors, plants, museums, gardens, and tours. Many of our attractions comes with no costs other than your camera to help you savor your memories.

Vacationers and those here on business have loved the high-speed internet connection with wireless capabilities. Keep in touch with family and friends, instantly sending them pictures of your daily adventures. Our free long distance digital services adds another route to share moments and catch up with old friends. Slow down, relax, enjoy life, and take the time to re-connect.

Honeymoon, enjoy your keiki (children), or write a book. The ocean views, tropical landscaping, and peace of old Hawaii at the Malia Bree will surely inspire you to not only 'Be On Vacation,' but 'Feel on Vacation'!

Cathedral knotty pine ceilings, skylights and ceiling fans through the home gives you a spacious feeling, as the central cupola floods the open family room/kitchen with a soft airy light. You will spend hours on the wrap-around deck feeling the Hawaiian trade winds, watching the trees sway and listening to the birds sing. The entryway is gated with a circled driveway, and covered parking. DVD player, CD player, VCR (movies and Hawaiian CD's available)

lovely quiet peaceful retreat with all comforts

The home was easy to locate with the directions lyndy provided before our arrival. The flowers on arrival was a nice homely touch. The home is very well maintained and had excellent standards in regards to cleanliness. The layout of the house was fantastic as my parents were on one side of the house and my aunt and I were on the other. The front door steps are very easy to climb (lower then even normal steps!!). We survived the first big storm of the season without loss of power but the rain came down very heavy. We loved the view and woke to a number of animals (chickens, turkeys, cows etc) in the paddock in the mornings. The drive into Hilo itself is not that far (10mins) and we did a day trip up to the Volcano national park. Thanks Lyndy for going the extra mile you have fantastic customer service skills and I would recommed this property to family and friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dee! The rainstorm was impressive! Even to us islanders who should be use to it. Glad that you made the most of it and still got to see and do everything that you wanted to do. Thank you for your response. It really helps our prospective guests get a feel of what they can look forward to, and credibility to our vacation rental. The cows in the lot across us are very entertaining indeed. Next time, if you are lucky, you may catch a family of piglets running across the fence line!
Mahalo and a fond aloha! Hope you can return to the Big Island again someday. Lyndy

What makes this place so special?

  • Submitted: Sep 24, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2007
Lyndy, My son said it all when he walked up the stairs and looked into the window. "Mom, this place is awesome!" We just came from Oahu, and are on to Kona but there is no question in my mind that Malia Bree will be our favorite home away from home. Our time here is definitely too short.
What makes this place so special? The fact that it feels so native Hawaiian, the wonderful fresh fruit smoothies across the street, the beautiful road through unbelievably lush jungle, the quaint feel of Hilo town with the diverse farmer's market--but mostly the spirit of "Aloha" that your showed us from the first e-mail . You treated us like family visiting. We cannot thank you enough for teaching us the spirit of Hawaii Mahalo

Lyndy, We enjoyed our visit to the Malia Bree. It is a perfect vacation setup for us; traveling with children is much better with a second bedroom and a kitchen. Thank you for a thoughtfully arranged and kept accommodation. Thank you as well for your hospitality for our children. This was a trip to visit family which can be overwhelming for little ones and Malia Bree was our oasis of peace and sanity. I did a lot of research of various accommodations in Hilo--hotels, B&B other vacation rentals--and I am certain we got the best one!

To Lyndy,
WoW! Your home is absolutely perfect. It is refreshing and breezy on a hot day, cool and relaxing on the rainy days. We had a beautiful vacation. It was more than we expected. The Smoothie Place across the street was a great added bonus. We plan on coming again next year if we haven't moved here yet. Love the Big Island, Hilo! Mahalo

Our First Attempt at Vacations Rentals....

  • Submitted: Sep 23, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2007
March 26-30 , 2007 Aloha and much Mahalo to you Lyndy! This was our first attempt at vacation rentals through the internet on our many visits to the Hawaiian Islands...and boy what a WONDERFUL FIND with the Malia Bree. Your garden was lush and beautiful as we drove into the grounds and the view of the ocean was just heavenly. The Malia Bree itself was a quiet heavenly escape from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Your home was beautiful, clean, and out of the pages of a tropical Island Magazine. Waking up to the calls of a tropical rainforest was amazing. All the different bird sounds were music to my families and my ears! My children loved listening to the geckos at night and the one night of rain we had was soothing to our ears. All the amenities that the Malia Bree provided was a wonderful home away from home experience! And lastly, Lyndy, your hospitality was much appreciated! Your suggestions and "aloha" were awesome. My two young toddlers and my elderly parents enjoyed the stay as well. Thank you again,now we will begin our journey back to Canada and hope to visit again!

Aloha Lyndy! Wow! It was wonderful staying at your rental vacation home! We all loved the breath taking view of the ocean. Your home was very inviting and a nice place to stay. I personally loved being so close to the fantastic smoothie stand. We enjoyed the laid back style of Hilo and towns surrounding it. The forest and nearby waterfalls were calming and beautiful to look at! We visited the Volcanoes nearby and were amazed to hear how the Hawaiian Islands were formed. Like everyone else said, the rain was very pleasing to listen to before you fell asleep. Overall we loved your vacation home and hope to retune soon! Mahalo!!!!

Dear Lyndy, Thank you for so much for sharing your beautiful home! We had a spectacular time! Hilo was the perfect base for us. I think our absolute favorite activity was the Manta Ray night dive. The volcano lava flow was awesome as well. We all feel so privileged to see such magnificent sights, that aren't available on any other place on this earth. You have been a great host and we hope that the rest of our vacation will be as comfortable as it was for us here. Mahalo

What a beautiful home-- wonderful ocean views and landscaping. We had a great time! We visited my nephew who attends the University in Hilo. We celebrated my sisters 40th birthday. 1 week passed by very quickly. Thank you for such a clean, organized home away from home.
