Located on the same side of the street as the ocean (NOT across the street from the ocean), the Orchid cottage has limited views and easy access to the whitewater coastline. Walk along the coast in either direction or fish from the cliffs. Soothing sounds of the waves crashing along the shoreline can be heard day and night. This spacious 1-bedroom 1-bath house is an affordable accommodation for an individual or couple who wants to be near the ocean. The house has a fold out couch for additional guests. A high quality inflatable mattress is also available instead of the fold out couch.
Very clean and exceptionally well appointed. Kitchen, full-sized washer/dryer, high speed internet (WiFi), cable TV, etc.

The Orchid house is located south of Hilo town. Just 20 minutes to central Hilo. An easy 35 minutes drive to the Volcanoes National Park. Close to Big Island Hawaii guest activities and the warm pond swimming area (about 15 minutes by car). Approximately 25 minutes drive to Hilo swimming, snorkeling, and surfing beaches.

Owner of 4 homes directly across from Richardson's Beach Park and 3 ocean front homes in Paradise Park. I manage these homes personally with my cell number available to all guests.

This property has the main house toward the ocean, separated by an unused garage. That house is VRBO Listing #453162. Lastly, about a mile away from this house I have a three bedroom/two bath home listed at: VRBO Listing #453162.
I always keep the calendars updated.
Richard Standke purchased this house in 2012
This house is a stones throw from the water yet priced as a bargain. The house has a kitchen and laundry facilities for comfortable long term stays.
The property is a guest house off the quiet street with an unused garage separating this house from the main house toward the ocean.
This is a large house for a one bedroom (900 sq. ft.).
The main house is also a vacation rental and is listed on VRBO as VRBO Listing #453162.
The bedroom is large and has a king size bed. An additional 2 guests could stay on the fold out couch (best for kids). This allows you to stay in privacy yet be only 22 minutes from Hilo central.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. If you want to get away from the hotels on the Big Island this is a great way. The house, the guest house and the main house, are off a quiet road allowing a lot of time to enjoy the ocean views and quiet atmosphere. The owner was fantastic, friendly and attentive to our needs.. I recommend highly and will stay again.
Great communication from the owner no problems finding or getting into the unit. Great location to sit and enjoy your morning coffee on out on the lava with the waves splashing below. Unit had everything we needed very central location.
This is just South of Hilo in an area of nice homes along the ocean. It has a very functional kitchen, cable tv, wifi, laundry and is very large. For less than a hotel room you get much more. We enjoyed sitting on the ocean ledge and watching the sunrise (we were up early). Fantastic. The place is very clean and in great condition.
A perfectly adequate place to base your operations for this unique part of the island. Close to the tide pools and the scenic drives adjacent to the coast, as well as the unique town of Pahoa.
The rental is spacious and has everything you need, including a washer/dryer. It's more functional than homey and the sofa couch is as uncomfortable as most old sofa couches if a second bed is a relevant issue to you. Your ocean view is also blocked by the larger dwelling in front but you can access the coast just fine by the side path. Owner is in LA but responsive. Pretty good value for the money.
Only negative thing was that there was no grill. The description did say there would be one on site. The owner was notified and was going to purchase another one. Great place to stay for the price. Owner of the house is very friendly. Would stay again short term and long term. I highly recommend this house. Ocean very close!
The house is spotless and everything works great. We finally had a place we could catch up on our laundry. We enjoyed dinners and wine on the water by taking a couple chairs out back. Great internet. We would drive to Hilo everyday, which isn't bad at all. We did the Volcano one day. That also didn't take long to get there. A great deall for this location. The owner sent a guide of things to do. We used that and the Hawaii Revealed book at the home to tour around. So many great places to see. We really discovered this side of the Island. We are already planning our next stay.
