Why Richard Standke chose Hawaii

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted a pretty and quiet place to enjoy the views and this is exactly what we got. We spent hours with wine and food enjoying the ocean spray off the rocks. I would have loved to stay for another week.

Just a beauty

  • 5 of 5

Were fortunate to stay at this location for 10 days. It is a bit out of the way which we enjoy, had all of the comforts of home for us, wish we could have stayed longer would love to return.

It was really nice place to stay with family.

Great water front location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We did not spend a lot of time at the house we were busy each day out exploring the area. The location worked well for us and being right on the water was amazing.

Pros:

House was spotless when we arrived.

Right on the water with beautiful views.

So close, you will feel the spray and hear the roar of the ocean on the deck and in the house.

Great location for long walks along Beach Rd.

About 25 minutes to airport and Hilo.

Great location for exploring the east side of the Island. We loved Hilo the farmers market is great and lots of good Sushi restaurants.

House and furnishings are perfectly adequate. Kitchen was reasonably stocked with pots/pans etc. There were condiments, cooking oil, coffee filters and salt and pepper.

It rained some each day during our stay so we always felt comfortable in the house it was never hot but the humidity with the ocean spray has to make maintenance a challenge.

Cons:

No huge issues with the house but some minor inconveniences.

Outside lights did not work and we could find no switches to turn them on. They were motion activated but not working.

Could not find a light switch in the dark laundry room downstairs. Luckily we had packed flashlights.

No outside grill.

The 4PM check-in and 10:00 AM check-out were a bit inconvenient. Our experience with other properties have allowed for a 3PM check-in and noon check out. Not a big deal but something to be aware of.

Amazing View and Heavy Traffic

  • 3 of 5

The house is exactly as it appears in the pictures. A little dated but completely adequate. The main reason we booked this house was the view - it sits directly on the cliffs with a spectacular view of the ocean. You hear the roar of the ocean all day. The downside was the traffic. This property is approximately 7 miles from Hilo off of a main roadway identified as the 130. The traffic is brutal! It takes 40 to 60 minutes to get into Hilo. No way to avoid the traffic as it is the only road. Nothing in walking distance - no coffee, restaurants, beach etc. If you want to do anything you have to get on the 130.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I strive for consistent 5 star review so a 3 star review is quite a shock. The traffic isn't normally bad. Last year they completed a road widening expanding the two lanes farther down the 130. When I travel between 5 and 6 in the evening there can be a 10 minute delay, but that is the only time since the widening that I have had a delay. Maybe that week is when school started to it was an exception. Many rentals are farther south. I consistently spend only 25 minutes to and from Hilo.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home, but it was very hot. There was no air conditioning (which we knew) but we couldn't keep the sliding glass doors open at night because there were holes in the screens (and many warnings that it wasn't safe to leave doors open at night) and the two large windows on the water did not open. Would be great if the owners invested in new windows with screens for the two large windows on the water so there would be a breeze at night. Also, no curtains or shades on the sliders which heated up the house quite a bit during the day. It would have been a lot cooler if we could keep the sun out during the day when we were not in the house anyway. The master suite upstairs was very hot as it was in the loft and only had one small window.

Owner's Response: I'll get the screens fixed right away and some shades installed. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Very easy fixes.

Stayed for a month and the interior was very adequate. Great location and quite close to the lava cliffs.

Unfortunately, the exterior is another story. The screens to the lanai were removed after a call to Richard, but never replaced while I was there. Also, the roof and gutters need major work. And lastly, a good portion of the wooden floor on the lanai needs replacement.
