Royal Palms Estate is a one of a kind Hawaiian 6-star vacation dream! We have rented estates in many parts of the United States and the Caribbean- Royal Palms was the most spectacular estate thus far- one of a kind! Serenity is the one word I would use to describe the estate. The entire home and 14 acres of the are immaculately maintained. Upon arriving at the estate you are greeted with a spectacular view of a royal palm-lined drive with a panoramic ocean view. In fact, every single room at the estate has an ocean view! During our stay we were treated to sunrises that a professional photographer would dream of from the expansive lanai while gazing out at the ocean to see whales spouting, dreaming of cocktails at the swim up bar, strolling the property to pick delicious island fruit or spending a lazy afternoon lounging at the pool while viewing a picture perfect rainbow! This side of the island offers so many new adventures! There were countless waterfalls to view (World Botanical Gardens, Akaka Falls State Park), hikes to local beaches with turquoise water (my favorite was MacKenzie State Beach), fine dining at Cafe Pesto in Helo, enjoying the warm waters of Pahoa Hot Springs, snorkeling in the tide pools of Pahoa. The best part was at the end of a day of island adventures returning to the estate! I can't wait to show family, friends, and colleagues my photos while sharing vacation memories! And recommend that they contact the owner to reserve their stay on the Big Island! The owner and his on-site property manager were exceptional in their care and desire for our extraordinary island experience. Thank you, Jeff and Joe! Mahalo!

The Best Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting properties thru VRBO for years, but this was the best ever! The property is pristine. The views are spectacular. There were rainbows everyday. My family and I loved the layout of the house...huge kitchen, 4 master bedrooms, a theater room, the hot tub and the pool. My daughter enjoyed staying in the 5th bedroom which is right next to the pool. Each day we would pick fresh fruit on the property. In the evenings we'd sit on the lanai and enjoy the serenity. I would be remissed if I didn't mention the property manager, Joe. He checked on us everyday. At first I thought of him as our own private concierge, but I soon came to think of him as a member of our family who just happened to live in Hawaii. Our entire vacation was spectacular. There were 7 of us and everyone complimented me on my choice of this place!

Beautiful setting north of Hilo

  • 5 of 5

Royal Palms Estate is a lovely, very private home north of Hilo with its own fruit orchard on site. We had fresh juice every morning, enjoyed the spectacular view of the ocean and had plenty of room for our family of six to spread out. If you want non-stop sunshine and a beach, this is not the place for you. If you want to get a feel for the "real" Hawai'i, see beautiful waterfalls, explore Volcanoes National Park and learn some history of the Big Island, this is a great home base.

Ultimate place to stay

  • 5 of 5

If you like crowded condo's & beaches and lots of people this is NOT the place for you. If you like privacy with every amenity you could want then this IS the place for you. Can't say enough about the beautiful property with all the fruit trees and magnificent view looking out at the ocean. Bedrooms were large with huge showers. There were 8 of us and I did not hear a single complaint about anything. You also get Joe, the property manager, who can fill you in on the best places to go on the island for most any activity. Can't see how anyone could be disappointed with a stay at this property.

Beautiful views, great property, wonderful hosts...

  • 5 of 5

My family had a fantastic stay at this property/house. Lots of privacy, beautiful scenery and views - loved the sunsets and ocean view. My entire family loved the infinity pool - very refreshing and fun. Tons of space in all the rooms and in the main house where dining, kitchen, entertainment area was located. All amenities worked great (pool, hot tob, appliances). This location was situated perfect for exploring this side of the Island, going on tours/activities as well as getting to stores for various needs (food, shopping, etc). Property managers (Joe and Michelle) were fantastic! Joe really went out of his way to give all the particulars on where to go and what to see and how to get there - friendly, professional and easy to deal with. We highly recommend this property for your vacation on the Big Island!!

Privacy and Views

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 9 stay for 10 days at the house. The 14 acre setting was very private (which we like) and the ocean views were phenomenal. Plenty of room in the house and the accomodations themselves were excellent. Everything was in great working condition (pool, hot tub, appliances). We ended up staying put in the house more than venturing out. The property managers (Joe and Michelle) were exceptionally good as compared to other VRBO's that we have rented over the years. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and were excellent source of information about the island and things to do, including beaches. Very friendly and professional. The location of the house worked out good for us in that we were within 30 minutes to Hilo and just over an hour to the Kona side of the island.
