About Michael Zimmerman
We area recently retired couple hoping to move to our Hawaii home some day. Until we do so we are letting others make use of our home for their vacation. We take much pride in making our home a very comfortable place with all the amenities you could need. But you do not have to take our word alone - you can read the comments in this listing from the many renters who have stayed in our home.
Michael Zimmerman purchased this House in 2009
Why Michael Zimmerman chose Keaau
Before we bought this home we had stayed in many vacation rentals on the Islands so when we set ours up we knew what distinguished one from another. Our home is different from many in how little traffic you will see. It is not unusual to be sitting on the lanai on a lazy Saturday afternoon gazing at the ocean and not see any cars for an hour.
What makes this House unique
The windows throughout the house provides an ocean view from nearly every room in the house.

Great Week on The Big Island
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay here. When you get your rental instructions PAY ATTENTION. It is really dark and secluded. We arrived during the daytime luckily. The space is perfect. We did a lot of cooking during our week here and everything was provided. It gets a little warm in the afternoon but if you have all the windows open you will be just fine. It's Hawaii. All in all it was a wonderful week at a great property. it was an excellent value as well. Book this property if you have the chance.
Thank you for writing us such a nice review. We are happy you enjoyed our home.

Peaceful, clean and private.
The house is spacious and clean with many amenities. Comfortable beds and fans in every room. Covered parking is a bonus. Beautiful, quiet neighborhood with wonderful walking opportunities. But best of all, the large lanai with the ocean across the street!
Thank you Janice for taking time to review our property. You are welcome back anytime. You were excellent guests.

Great house to rent.
The property was very clean, nice neighborhood, and as advertised. The owner was very helpful.
Perfect location in quiet neighborhood.
Very easy to locate and easy drive from Hilo airport. Very accessible to nearby town of Pahoa and easy drive to volcano national park. Quiet neighborhood which was great for morning jog. Lots of space and great lanai!
Thanks for being such great guests. See you next time.

Very nice stay, beautiful house, view of ocean fro across the street. Very accommodating host, detailed instructions
Lovely house, quiet neighborhood, beautiful view
This house was wonderful to stay in. So much space for 3 of us. The kitchen had everything you could need. Beach chairs towels, coolers etc were available to use. Ten minutes from an amazing Market on Sundays. Close enough to Hilo to go for a long or short excursion. Michael and Terry were great to work with. Would definitely recommend this house if you want to get away from all the touristy spots and be in a quiet neighborhood.
Thank you for being such great guests. We are so glad you enjoyed our home. We put a lot of effort into making it an enjoyable Hawaii home away from home. Come back anytime.
Come relax in our two-bedroom, two-bath house with a large ocean view lanai. The house is on a quiet street that runs along the ocean and has two parks within easy walking distance on the coast. You will often find there are more walkers than cars passing below our lanai. The house is very nice, offers views of the ocean from nearly every room, and the living room features Island style furniture. The master bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed with a large walk-in shower. The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything you will need to prepare the meals which you will likely enjoy while sitting on the lanai. Thanks to the trade winds our home has some of the best air in Hawaii.
There aren't that many volcanoes in the world, and how many of them can you walk on? Speaking of which, the new East Rift Zone eruption is still underway as Pele forms new land. But have no worries as our home is in a safe location with some of the best air on all of the Islands thanks to the trade winds. Yet you are just a short drive from the volcanic activity and at night the orange glow can be spectacular. The Hawaii government has said they hope to soon be opening a viewing area. During the day you can drive towards nearby Pahoa and you will be able to see the gas\steam plume from Fissure 8 and the local weather it creates. This can cause it to be raining in Pahoa but sunny and dry at our home.
Pahoa with its mix of cowboy and Victorian character with wooden sidewalks is close by and has some of the best small restaurants in East Hawaii. The Maku’u Farmers Market on Sundays is close to our home and continues to thrive. While you are there you can pick up some produce or buy gifts for family and friends back home. Try some Lava Candy, local honey, and lilikoi jam.
For a special treat on Wednesday evenings you can drive past the steaming vents to Kalapana to visit Uncle Roberts Awa bar and Farmers Market. While you are there you can listen to great Hawaiian Slack Key guitar music, watch some hula dancing, and enjoy dinner choosing from the many vendors. This market is another good place to buy gifts for family and friends back home.
Hilo has old-Hawaii storefronts and offers many attractions including swimming and snorkeling at safe beaches. It has a large Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Hilo has many cultural events (such as the Merrie Monarch Hula Festival and the Big Island Hawaiian Music Festival). For the time being the Volcano National Park Service has relocated to downtown Hilo at the free Mokupapapa Discovery Center for Hawaii’s Remote Coral Reefs.
There is much more to see and explore in Eastern Hawaii — or you can just sit on the lanai, listen to the birds, watch the waves, and look for whales.
