This oceanfront home is steps away from the cliff’s edge. Thrill-seekers will enjoy the crashing ocean waves and spectacular rainbow light-shows throughout the day. This lovely home welcomes you and your family with the gentle, aloha spirit. Mahalo.

About Alfreda McDonald

Let me introduce myself, I am Alfreda McDonald but I prefer Eva my husband Robby, and I live in California on the coast between Monterey and Santa Cruz. In 2014 we decided to invest in our beautiful vacation home in a extraordinary location. We have enjoyed renting our lovely Hawaiian home for many years, and would be most delighted to have you and your family enjoy our wonderful House of Love by the Sea.

Alfreda McDonald purchased this house in 2004

Why Alfreda McDonald chose Hawaii

I fell in love with the home in 2004 the location is unbelievably beautiful and the ocean can be seen from all rooms on the property. Our home is easy to get to from the Hilo International Airport and I can get our supplies and get home in 20 minutes after a tiring flight.The home is our retirement home which we are enjoying renting to travelers like yourself. Aloha.

What makes this house unique

This is beautiful home besides a place to sleep eat and clean up it has many amenities that can't be beat. Sitting out back in the morning having tea and watching the sun rise, or feeling the cool breeze in the afternoon heat. Oceanfront is very special few homes have this distinction, ocean views, the sound, and taste of salt on your lips. I love to take a night time swim in the salt pool or a morning swim to wake me up:) It's the ideal home for the family vacation staying in a safe, neighborhood setting close to shopping, restaurants and all kinds of recreation.

Huge! Great view

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this property during when the hurricane was gonna hit and I must say, it was one heck of an experience! Ofcourse the house was well maintained even with the high winds and surf & the owner was extremely helpful regarding the whole situation! The only reason I put 4 stars was because of the water pressure, shower one at a time and don't wash dishes at the same time. Other than that, it was a very lovely and clean home and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family & stay there again myself!!

Owner's Response: I am so sorry, that big storm left our water filters dirty and effected the water pressure. However the dishwasher might effect the presser in the master shower. That is a good observation, I don't use the dishwasher so I wouldn't get that. I would take my shower before I start the dishwasher. O'Kealoha has two hot water heaters. If the presser is low call me:)

Wonderful Ocean views at a GREAT price !!!!

  • 4 of 5

The views from the master bedroom, kitchen and backside of the house (which faces the water) are amazing !!! The open concept kitchen, dinning and living room is really nice! the kitchen is equipped with all cooking needs. However, some of the appliances didn't work? The whole house could use updating. BUT If you're looking for a no nonsense, house near the water this is it!

Beautiful spacious scenic house.

This was one of the most memorable stays yet in Hawaii, The birds and wildlife along with the waves crashing right outside the back door made me want to move in.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 of us on this Hawaii trip celebrating my son's 13th birthday. Everyone had their own space. The kids loved swimming in the warm rain in the pool. We loved watching the sun set from the back porch overlooking the ocean. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home! It was amazing! :-)

OUTSTANDING PROPERTY!!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this fantastic home and the owner! We were a party of 6 with an additional 2 kids that live on island that came to stay. There was more than enough room for everyone, and we never felt crowded. The home is HUGE, very clean and what a location! Steps from the ocean and views for miles. Every amenity you could ask for. The owner called me before our trip to welcome us to the home, and wanted to confirm the number of guests, so she was sure enough beds were made upon our arrival - what a gesture! She also called while we were there as she had heard the volcano was active and we might be able to see the "glow" from the yard. Sadly, it clouded up. I highly recommend this property for your next trip. Short drive to the volcano or Hilo. 1.5 - 2 hours to Kona side. And the pool is a welcome home treat each day! Thank you Alfreda for opening up your home to the public!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for my family as a Christmas gift for my young adult kids. We went during spring break since they are in college. We arrived to a clean home with fantastic views of the ocean. Every night we sat and watched the sunset, what a beautiful sight. We stayed outside listening to the waves crash as we went over everything we did that day. Everything that is listed as the "top 10 things to see" is either in Hilo or over in Kona which is less then 2 hours away.

If you are looking for a nice house with quiet neighbors and a place where everyone can gather at the end of the day, then this is the house you should rent.
