Please come visit our lovely Vacationland home with flourishing green and flower loaded yard. Honestly, it is a little old but charming. We plan to remodel soon, and hope you don't mind a gecko or two. It's Hawaii, so to be expected, right? Home has a screened in lanai for listening to the breaking surf and enjoying the ocean breeze. Looking out you see many tropical plants around the tide pool. This is truly a place to relax and unwind and let all your cares slip away. The house is very private and is surrounded by palm trees. The house is peaceful,spacious, uncluttered, with a large kitchen and nice dining areas for your family. . There are three comfortable bedrooms in which to relax and have a great night's sleep.
Vacationland is on the very eastern tip of the Big Island,this is the undiscovered area on swimmable ocean where you can truly relax and let the island rejuvinate you.
Once you are ready for some adventure take a short 5 minute walk to Wai Opae Tide pools . They have some of the island's best snorkeling. A marine preserve attracts an array of colorful fish and often large sea turtles.
Beautiful coral gardens with many kinds and colors of coral await you, the water is almost always calm due to a reef that breaks the waves before they reach the pond. You may also like to visit the Aha Lanui Warm Springs park with a geothermal pond just 1 mile away.
Other places that might interest you are the one of a kind steam vents, the ever amazing Kiluea Volcano ( in Volcano national park), unusual Hilo town, or take a day trip over to Kailua-Kona a 3 hour drive. Also I suggest you take a step back in time to visit Pahoa town, only 15 minutes away, it's a unique place with a number of very good food establishments, and an old-town feel as you stroll the boardwalks of main street. The Sunday Maku’u farmers market is a social event not to be missed where you’ll find unique trinkets and exotic food as well as other amazing finds,and only about 20 minutes away.
This astonishing location is quiet, out of the Hilo rain and the fast pace of Kona town yet close enough to enjoy them both and still make it back in time to unwind in one of our 3 comfortable bedrooms.
So please give yourself the unforgettable experience to enjoy the magic of your Vacationland Beauty rental home.
I am a nurse-midwife and love Hawaii and I plan to retire there someday. I live and work in California but try to come to my Hawaiian home twice a year.
Owner purchased this house in 2004
I have loved this area since coming on vacation here in the 1970's. I love the Red Road, the tide pools and the hot pools as well as all of the plants and birds. The Big Island is rich in natural beauty, geological wonders, archeological sites and ancient cultural practices. Also the International Merry Monarch Hula Festival is held in Hilo every April.
We feel very blesss to be here i Hawaii and are also very grateful to you for opening your lovely home to us
Great location because the tidal pools are a daily event and a most see. The house in general works fine for the price, but could use an update to most things. The furniture could be replaced to a more comfortable set with a couch and chairs set. Dishwasher was broken at the time of our visit but owner was trying to change it. The house has lots of room for complete family of 6 with lots of room for kids to play.
The house was close to things we wanted to do. It was ok, but could use an update. The dishwasher didn't work.
Location is amazing for the tide pools. Very convenient for those non stop snorkelers. House had plenty of space. Very comfy beds. Now for the negative review, house wasn't very clean and the property not kept up. Had to buy items to clean before we could "settle" in. Also, had to deal with a leaky skylight in the restroom,and it rained all week. And the furniture was very uncomfortable for lounging around. I've spoken to the owner, and feel really confident that the issues we spoke of will be taking care of. Until these items are taking care of, look for another house.
The first thing I want to say is that the location is perfect. However, I was not impressed as the rest of the people that reviewed this property. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was not impressed. The house needs a lot of work (screens are broken for example) and the furniture was not very comfortable so lounging around in the house was not a pleasant experience. I also found mildew on the one of the twin beds when I removed the sheets. It was very hot when we were there and some of the ceiling fans were not working.
Place is awesome with the exception of the fire ants. They're all over place and they pack a bite. Bring a couple of cans of raid before you come. All in all, great ponds and amenities for the home.
This house is very nice. Light and airy, and very tropical feeling. We were comfortable there, and enjoyed our vacation. We especially liked being able to walk to the tide pools and swim.
