Richard Standke purchased this house in 2012
There are many low priced properties in Hilo. This house is larger than most with plenty of room so spread out. It house is spotlessly clean and in great condition. Paradise Park is South of Hilo enough to enjoy a real Hawaiian neighborhood but close enough to be at a Hilo restaurant in 25 mintutes. Enjoy a sunrise unlike you have ever had. Cook a great breakfast and enjoy it on the patio or my moving the furniture near the ocean cliffs.
House is just 25 minutes from Downtown Hilo.
Not well known, Hilo has more tourist destinations than any Hawaiian destination. These include:
*Historic Downtown with shops and restaurants on the Bay.
* Waterfalls right in town. Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots.
* Akaka Falls just 25 minutes North of Hilo
* Volcano National Park, just 35 minutes above Hilo
* Hawaiian Botanical Gardens.One of the nicest gardens you will find.
* Hilo Farmers Market. Everyday but largest on Wednesday and Saturday.
* Liliuckalani Gardens at Hilo Bay including Coconut Island.
* Lyland museum for historic information and geologic rocks.
* Tsunami museum housed in a historic bank
* Wine tasting at the Volcano Winery
* Beer tasting right in town at Hawaii Nui Brewery
* Coffee tasting at Hilo Coffee Mill on your way to the Volcano
* Hilo Zoo. Free and very pretty.
* Mauna Loa Nut company self guided "look through window" tour and gift shop. Free and nice shop for lunch and ice cream.
* Historic Palace Theatre downtown. Check internet for show dates.
* Nearby to Pahoa town, near active lava flows.
*Continue on to Ahalanui Park's warm pond and then snorkle at Champagne Ponds (tidepools) in Kapoho.
* Venture South beyond Volcano National Park to Punaluu County Park for lots of black sand and full time lounging turtles.
* Continue South for Punaluu Bake shop and South Point Road. Incredable vistas from the most Southern point in the U.S.
* Go North along the beautiful Hamakua coast and go horseback riding in Waipi'o Valley.
I stayed at this property with my husband and parents for two nights in Augus. Two nights wasn't enough time! The view is gorgeous, and I wish we had more time on the big island to enjoy it. It had been raining more than usual for several days when we arrived and the downstairs bedroom was a little bit musty smelling, but not bad. After opening the windows up, the smell dissipated and it was fine within an hour. I slept there and had no complaints. The rest of the house was clean and nice. The kitchen was stocked with a few essentials and we were able to cook in it easily. The location isn't super close to any grocery stores, so it would be good to arrive early enough to take stock of what is there and make a grocery list.
The location is close to volcano sightseeing, whether you want to go to Volcano National Park or take a boat ride to see lava pouring into the ocean. We did both and loved the experiences! If you're going out for meals, I can highly recommend breakfast at Pele's Kitchen in Pahoa and dinner at Tina's Garden Gourmet Cafe in Hilo -- the food was fantastic at both of these places!
I would stay here again, ideally for more than two nights to be able to explore more of the island.
Richard was the perfect host:) the house is beautiful and felt like our own home. It has everything you could possibly need and the view and location is spectacular. Our whole family had the best stay yet here since arriving in Hawaii! Thank you Rixhard for making us feel at home and for being the perfect host:):) we will definitely be back!!
The view from this property is lovely. The kitchen and living rooms were fine. The information packet was very informative and helpful. However, here are the problems we faced- complaint filed with VRBO the first night but no resolution:
The bottom floor bedroom is extremely musty. We tried to open the windows to let it air out, however, that did not help at all- owner said a humidifier should have been on but it wasn't put on by the housekeeper. It was so musty none of us could stand the smell. Again the owner was previously aware of the problem. Also the lower floor bedroom had no working overhead lights.,
Main floor bedroom- a screen missing on one window not allowing it to be opened not allowing for cross ventilation. The bedroom was so hot it was not usable. The housekeeper knew the screen was missing. Directions to make sure all screens were secure due to "bug" problems was in our welcome packet.
Main floor bathroom- a lot of hair sticking out from under the rug and sand in the tub. Obviously had not been cleaned properly after prior guests.
All of us had to stay in the upstairs bedroom. The bedding on the futon was either very discolored due to age or it was dirty.
One upstairs windows has a broken lock which the owner was aware of prior to our occupancy.
I requested a partial refund since 2 bedrooms were unusable. Musty and too hot due to negligence of the owner/housekeeper. A formal complaint was submitted to VRBO the first night- we received no response from the owner or VRBO after the complaint was filed. The owner agreed to a $200 refund I asked for $300 but to lack of cleaning and unusable bedrooms. The owner now refused any refund at all. This states something about the honor and word of the owner. If you have problems- be prepared to have a "tough luck" response. This was a graduation trip for a family member that we saved for- for a long time. Very disapointed.
The house is very comfortable in a really quiet neighborhood. It's quite unassuming, but when you walk out back and see the view from the black lava rock cliff, it is amazing!! We spent our evenings out back gazing at the ocean and having happy hour and our mornings watching the sunrise. The house is located near the hot springs and champagne pool. It's an easy drive to the Volcano National Park. We bought fresh fish in Hilo and grilled one evening. We ate breakfast at a local spot, Pele's Kitchen in Pahoa, which was delicious. All in all, we would go back in a heartbeat!
The stay was great, the scenery was absolutely beautiful and with all the comforts of home in a paradise setting, will definitely recommend to all and will keep there number in my phone for future stays and quick reference for others, nothing was any farther away than 20-30 minutes shopping,restaurants and anything else a person would want and Richard was always just a phone call away, the cleaning service does a wonderful job.
If you want quiet, peaceful vacation house this is the place for you. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks is the best. The house it as pictured, clean, and had plenty of room for the four of us. The kitchen is well equipped. Enough towels and beach toys. Everything was clean, the cable and Internet worked fine. We did however had a bit of a problem with our cell phone providers with poor signal. I would recommend this home and would stay again.
