The Malia Bree at Onomea

Call me for discounts! 808 895-0196 !!!

Enjoy Hawaii's beautiful ocean views and the tropical landscaping in this private home with gated entry. Our open-styled kitchen/family room with high ceilings and skylights provides for great family time and spacious comfort to relax in. Spend hours on the wrap-around deck enjoying the tropical breezes and Hawaiian ambiance.

Sit back and have breakfast on the lanai and be mesmerized by our spectacular sunrises, watch for the humpback whales from the patio, or see the cruise ships make their way toward Hilo. Be dazzled by our incredible night sky and plan for an evening of stargazing high upon Mauna Kea.

Centrally located in East Hawaii on the Onomea Scenic Route, often called the most beautiful place on the Big Island, you will find yourself in old Hawaii. Not a room, not a section, but the whole house is yours to relax in, with the heart of Hilo town about 10 minutes away, serene Akaka Falls and Honomu Town ten minutes away, and the must see Volcano National Park a scenic 45 minutes away.

The Hamakua coastine'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 costs other than your camera to help you savor your memories.

Vacationers and those here on business have loved the high-speed internet connection with wireless capabilities. Keep in touch with family and friends, instantly sending them pictures of your daily adventures. Our free long distance digital services adds another route to share moments and catch up with old friends. Slow down, relax, enjoy life, and take the time to re-connect.

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'!

About Lynda Grosskreutz

Aloha and thank you for your interest in renting with us. We are on island operators and take pride in making sure that everything is operating well and that your needs are well served. We are available 24/7 for helping you while you are on vacation and enjoying this beautiful area.

Lynda Grosskreutz purchased this house in 2005

Why Lynda Grosskreutz chose Hilo District

We have been open as a vacation rental since 2005 and specifically purchased this property for it's location, views, Hawaiiana feel and neighborhood. We are just 5 minutes away to help you with your vacation needs and questions. The Onomea Scenic Route is just an incredible drive to take. Onomea is so close to town, yet in the most beautiful tropical paradise and offers you lush landscaping and nature all around you.

What makes this house unique

This home is just wonderful. The large frosted cupola in the center of the home floods the home with a wonderful soft glow, and the layout makes the home a perfect for family time and vacationing. It's such a great plan and home, it has been duplicated more than once by our previous guests! Now that's flattering! The home is well stocked with most everything you will need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

lovely quiet peaceful retreat with all comforts

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dee! The rainstorm was impressive! Even to us islanders who should be use to it. Glad that you made the most of it and still got to see and do everything that you wanted to do. Thank you for your response. It really helps our prospective guests get a feel of what they can look forward to, and credibility to our vacation rental. The cows in the lot across us are very entertaining indeed. Next time, if you are lucky, you may catch a family of piglets running across the fence line! Mahalo and a fond aloha! Hope you can return to the Big Island again someday. Lyndy

Stunning house.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely setting and beautiful house with some breathtaking sunrises. The house was very clean and comfortable, although the two flights of steps up to the house could pose a problem for people with mobility issues. For us, it worked out well and very much worth the steps. Lyndy was attentive to all our needs without being intrusive. I wish I could come back every year!

Excellent spot to stay for peace and quiet and to explore the east coast of Hawai'i

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and location. It is rural and quiet (no frog problems at all) but only 10-15 minutes from Hilo and close to everything along the east side of the island. Just across the road is What's Shakin', which has great food and wonderful smoothies. Lynda is extremely helpful if anything is needed or with information. We highly recommend staying here.

Loved the place!

  • 4 of 5

Really liked the raised wooden house. Very comfortable. There were 3 adults and 2 babes under 2yo staying there. One went in the cot provided and the other on a lilo. Lovely big house. TV worked well, wifi was excellent. Kitchen big and had everything we needed. Saw cows, pigs, green lizards, a few frogs (heard the frogs all at night too) and even saw a mongoose crossing the road on our evening walk, as we headed towards the lovely botanic gardens down the coast. They are really worth a visit. Even toys there for the kids. We put the fuze ball balls in the nearby cupboard to stop little fingers getting them. Just remembered - probably still there!!! Sorry Lyndie. Everyone - you must put on insect spray if you sit outside, little midges bite you otherwise!. Totally recommend the house to all.

Amazing, tranquil home with all of the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We originally booked this to be for 6 people, but due to health issues, there ultimately only ended up being 2 of us that came on this trip. Because of this, we did not get to use the home to the extent of its abilities, but loved our stay all the same. The home is in a nice, serene, "country side" location. We had easy access to Hilo, saddle road and Volcano. We also took an evening trip around to Waimea all with ease. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay that gives you freedom to come and go, but also has enough scenery, games and entertainment at the home to make for a fun time with the whole family. Lindy had everything we needed for outings around the island conveniently already at the home as well as plenty of kitchen/bath amenities. There is a wonderful little smoothie/cafe/stand across the street as well which is nice for outings. Overall, I would highly recommend this home to anyone who wants to travel as a family and get to spend quality time together as well as anyone in general who wants a clean, spacious, conveniently located home to stay in while exploring the island of Hawaii.
