The beautiful Malia Bree at Onomea
HI Tax ID # W83948495-01
Enjoy the beautiful ocean view and the tropical landscaping in this private home with gated entry. Spend hours on the wrap-around deck enjoying the tropical breezes and Hawaiian ambiance. Sit back and watch for the humpback whales from the patio, or see the cruise ships make their way toward Hilo. Be dazzled by our incredible stargazing, as the island has been outfitted with special lighting for the observatories up on Mauna Kea.
Centrally located in East Hawaii on the Onomea Scenic Route, often called the most beautiful place on the Big Island, you'll find yourself in old Hawaii. The whole house is yours to relax in, with the town of Hilo just 10 - 12 minutes away, serene Akaka Falls and Honomu Town five minutes away, and the 'must see' Volcano National Park 45 minutes away.
The Hamakua coastline's best kept secret is our unique tradewind weather that encourages most of the rainfall to occur in the early mornings and evenings, leaving the day fresh and clean with sunshine and breezes. You will not be disappointed by the colors, plants, museums, gardens and tours. Many of our attractions comes with no cost other than your camera to help you savor your memories.
Honeymoon, enjoy your keiki (children), or write a book. The ocean views, tropical landscaping,and peace of old Hawaii at the Malia Bree will surely inspire you to not only 'be on vacation,' but 'feel on vacation.'
Lyndy, My son said it all when he walked up the stairs and looked into the window. "Mom, this place is awesome!" We just came from Oahu, and are on to Kona but there is no question in my mind that Malia Bree will be our favorite home away from home. Our time here is definitely too short.
What makes this place so special? The fact that it feels so native Hawaiian, the wonderful fresh fruit smoothies across the street, the beautiful road through unbelievably lush jungle, the quaint feel of Hilo town with the diverse farmer's market--but mostly the spirit of "Aloha" that your showed us from the first e-mail . You treated us like family visiting. We cannot thank you enough for teaching us the spirit of Hawaii Mahalo
The home was easy to locate with the directions lyndy provided before our arrival. The flowers on arrival was a nice homely touch. The home is very well maintained and had excellent standards in regards to cleanliness. The layout of the house was fantastic as my parents were on one side of the house and my aunt and I were on the other. The front door steps are very easy to climb (lower then even normal steps!!). We survived the first big storm of the season without loss of power but the rain came down very heavy. We loved the view and woke to a number of animals (chickens, turkeys, cows etc) in the paddock in the mornings. The drive into Hilo itself is not that far (10mins) and we did a day trip up to the Volcano national park. Thanks Lyndy for going the extra mile you have fantastic customer service skills and I would recommed this property to family and friends.
The property exceeded our expectation. It was ideal central location for our family of four for hiking for waterfalls and visiting Volcano National Park. The house was surrounded by tropical foliage which made you feel you were on the island by your self. The view from the back porch was breath taking. My husband and I enjoyed eating our breakfast on the back porch every morning listening to the birds, frogs, cows and watching the rain. Lyndy was great. She let us check in early and checked in on us to make sure everything was going great. Having the smoothie stand across the street was the icing on the cake. We enjoyed Cafe 100 for dinner. They are known for their Moco Locos and are very reasonably priced. Big Island pizza was also very tasty. For snorkeling we recommend SeaQuest in Kona. You definitely need to visit Volcano National Park and see the flowing lava at night. As for hiking, there are plenty of places to go (easy-strenuous) that you won't be disappointed. Mahalo!
We had an amazing time in Hilo and in this lovely house. The house is very clean, and everything we needed was available. Lynda was very attentive. The shave ice down the road is amazing. Great location! There were seven of us (3 adults and 4 kids) and the only slight issue was that the queen couch didn't serve as a bed because it is very uncomfortable (two of the kids ended up sleeping on the ground), but besides that, everyone loved it! Thanks!!
My family enjoyed staying in this rental. Everything was as described. The house was very spacious, clean, well maintained and the wraparound deck was amazing. All the little amenities really were helpful and Lyndy had tons of local information available on fish/birds, restaurants, and local attractions you may want to visit while in her property. We found the tropical country setting to be relaxing and similar to our PA home. The frogs at night were relaxing and the cool breezes and fans made for a good night sleep. Being just outside of Hilo was nice for our visit to the falls, beaches, parks, and family. We would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the Hilo area.
Had a great time here, house is huge and loved that we could spread out and listen to the frogs. Low Store and What's Shakin' are close by (walkable!) and were both delicious! Thanks!
We stayed for nine nights. The house was perfect for our needs. The bugs are really crazy in the evenings and seem to find ways inside the house. We would just watch a movie in the evening with the lights out and that seemed to solve the bug problem. There is no air conditioning in the house but it really doesn't need one. A few evenings it was a little warm but nothing unbearable. You just want to make sure you have some loose comfy clothes to lounge around the house in. The washer and dryer were a huge blessing on such a long trip. The kitchen has everything you need. If you plan on using the grill make sure you use bug spray. The only time we had problems with bugs outside was when we grilled out. We would definitely stay again.
