We enjoy supplying knowledge about the area. Phil has left a copy of his book on Hawaiian history on the table for you to look at. A signed copy could also be purchased from him if you desire.
There are no stairs at all in our rentals and we have refitted in the remodel to accommodate standard size wheelchairs.
In the open ended carport there is a picnic table for outdoor dining options. This looks out on the fruit orchard.
When the clouds part there are also dramatic views of Mauna Kea.
Recently a gas BBQ has been added. It is in a covered area in the back of the lot beneath the avocado tree.
This 1 acre property has many established fruit trees from oranges,
avocados, mangosteens, bananas, lilikoi, just to name a few.
You are free to pick what is in season. Just ask the owner which is ready.
There is so much to do and see in Hilo and nearby areas that a few days can only make a small dent in it.
Enjoy walking to many Hilo attractions including art galleries, numerous restaurants and taverns, and Hilo's famous Farmers Market within 1/2 a mile. The Lyman Museum, Tsunami Museum and Imiloa Astronomy Center, and the University of Hawaii Hilo campus are all within 2 miles. A stroll along Kamehameha Avenue on Hilo's Bayfront will give you a real feel for the Hawaii of old with a relaxed pace and a feeling of Aloha that will want you to schedule another trip to Hilo.
You won't be disappointed in Hilo or Now and Zen. There are big hearts in the friendly folks here with LOTS of Aloha.
