The Plantation House location makes a great home base for short trips to Volcano National Park, Hamakua Coast, Akaka Falls, Kahuna Falls, Umauma Falls, Farmers’ Markets and a nearby Black Sand Beach.

There is no better place for a tropical escape - skip the hotel!

  • 5 of 5

When I booked this home I knew it would be awesome, based on the images and my communications with the property owner. But when I arrived at the house I was blown away by its beauty. We were there for our honeymoon and were so happy with our choice, it absolutely made the vacation a paradise. We slept in late and came home early just to take advantage of the wonderful space. The grounds were a perfect example of tropical landscaping, and the pool with mini waterfall were beautiful to look at, be around, and listen to. At night we turned off all the lights, sat by the pool, and listened to the chirping frogs as we stared at the stars. And the bird songs, both day and night, were so pretty, too!

Inside the home was immaculate, breezy, pretty, and fully stocked. I had a couple of questions for the home owner by email, and she got back to me quickly, thoroughly, and with a few extra tips about where to forage for fresh fruit!

This location is perfectly placed between Volcano and north of Hilo, so you can visit black sand beaches, tidepools, lava flow, ice shave downtown, waterfalls, and botanical gardens easily. Quick trip to and from Hilo airport. You must have a car for this island, and the home is down a long road with no lighting. Which is actually wonderful as it's a bit remote while still being close to attractions. Great privacy!

We were able to take a trip up to Mauna Kea summit - rented a 4x4 for the day from Harper (great customer service) and checked the summit's road conditions each day (as it was closed a few days during our visit), so we played in the snow for a bit then got back down to sea level for tropical drinks in Pahoa! Kaleo's is the best dining on the Hilo side, I'm pretty sure.

But back to the house! Do yourself a favor and book this home before considering a hotel. You'll pay the same price, if not less, and have beautiful grounds, wonderful sounds of paradise, and a crystal sparkling pool with waterfall.

I made a quick video of the grounds in front of the house:

Doesn't do it justice, but it's something :) Mahalo to Deb for sharing her wonderful home!

The property is Amazing. Fruit trees and seclusion. What a wonderful mix.

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything and more for my husband and I. We wanted close enough to civilisation but far enough to feel alone. We got it all. The house offered everything you need and a few things you might have forgotten. The owner and manager were helpful and didn't take long to respond if we needed anything. We didn't want to leave. If/when we come out again we would totally rent this place again. Night time took a little getting used to with the frogs and others making noise but didn't take long.We expected to get eaten alive by bugs, what bugs. Luv luv luv this place. 5 star for sure

A lovely home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the plantation house. We found it very spacious for our family and very safe for our three kids. The pool is fully fenced. The kitchen has great equipment and appliances. The house is really uncluttered and so safe and easy to unpack and pack from.

It's on a large (2 acre plot) and the planting in the garden is so nicely done with a great variety of trees and plants that attract beautiful birds. It's a really peaceful spot, but also a great location to explore Hilo, volcanically heated tide pools, the Volcanos National Park and the fun towns on the East side of the island.

The house is very well run, with Debs being a great and fast communicator and her house manager Toni being also wonderfully efficient and communicative. Also the house was spotlessly clean. I would recommend.
