Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Paradise awaits you at this brand new, charming home that sleeps five comfortably. The Master bedroom has a king size bed and a private bathroom, the second bedroom has a queen size bed and access to a shared bathroom, and the small den has a full size sleeper sofa if needed. All rooms have access to the wrap-around lanai that features ceiling fans, hammocks, dining furniture, lounge chairs and a tiki bar. For your grilling pleasure, there is a full sized gas grill on the lanai.

The house has an open feel, with ceiling fans throughout. It has a modern, fully equipped kitchen, featuring stainless steel appliances, a long center island that can accommodate up to six at the breakfast bar in addition to the dining area.

The living room has a 32” flat screen TV, DVD player, satellite tv, and a nice collection of DVD movies.

Forgot to bring your mask and snorkel? No worries! We have some you can use, because a short walk from the house is the best snorkeling on the Big Island - the Wai ’Opae Tide Pools. The offshore reef protects the tide pools from the sometimes-harsh southeastern shores of Hawaii. As you explore the maze of pools, you will find corals, schools of juvenile fish, moray eels, sea urchins, sea turtles, etc… It is like being in an aquarium! When you come home from the tide pools, there is an outside shower you can use to rinse off.

If you are looking for a romantic getaway, or a family looking to spend quality time together, our home offers something for everyone in paradise.

Beautiful home on idyllic property

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! It was spacious, well designed and very comfortable. We loved being a one block walk to the tide pools! They didn't look impressive from above, but below water...oh my! So many cool fish! We highly recommend this property!

Felt Like Home

  • 5 of 5

Everything is said in all recent reviews!!

We are a family with 3 teenage kids and stayed in August 2017. The house is really well equiped. Plenty of snorkel gear in good condition. We stocked up in Hilo but got also things in Pahao.

All in all 'A Home Away From Home'. I would recommend it to friends.

Thank you Liza.

Lovely home includes snorkel gear

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks here and it was just wonderful. The house is spacious, and well appointed with everything you'll need, even water shoes and snorkel gear! Great kitchen and grill, very clean and convenient to the best snorkeling on the island. Stock up on groceries before you leave Hilo, as the local markets are expensive. 1 hour to Volcano Nat'l Park, and your can use 1 admission receipt for a week. A lot of house for a reasonable cost.

Excellent choix!

  • 5 of 5

La maison est très bien située. Elle est très bien équipée et très propre. Liza répond à toutes vos demandes très rapidement. Nous étions 2 adultes et 3 enfants et on était très confortable. Beaucoup de matériel de snorkeling. Les tides pool sont très agréables à visiter, surtout avec les enfants. Faites un bonne liste d'épicerie, car la plus proche est à 15-20 minutes de voitures.

Perfect home by tidepools

  • 5 of 5

We stayed only four nights but would have loved to have stayed longer. The amenities were outstanding. It was well stocked with paper goods, kitchen had spices, tons of beach towels and the community closet had anything you would need for outdoor sports.

Loved the short walk to the tidepools and we went every day. We enjoyed the chirp of the tree frogs in the evening while we slept. I most enjoyed having the windows open and the feel of being in the jungle. Would love to return!
