          Elegant home with an unforgettable ocean view.

          Prior reviewers have covered a lot and I agree with their comments so I'll cover some other aspects. My wife and I spent a week here with another couple and we all hated to leave. The pictures of the interior really don't do it justice; it's a most attractive and comfortable living space. Full-size and fully equipped kitchen - take advantage of the KTA and Safeway over in Hilo and dine on fresh fish and local produce. The upstairs suite has a full glass front and opens onto the lanai; the downstairs front room opens onto a covered patio and has essentially the same view. No a/c, but it isn't needed. Nights are cool and there are plenty of doors and vented windows to let in the breezes by day. The pictures de-emphasize the phone and power lines that run in front of the house. First, you won't notice them after a while, and second, this is pretty typical for houses on the old coast road. The new Mamalahoa Highway runs behind the house, but it's up the hill where you can't really hear it - but it's very convenient. It's about a half-hour to Hilo for supplies and such at KTA, Safeway (cheap gas!), Walmart, Macy's, etc. and enjoy a fine meal at the Pesto Cafe. About as far west is Waimea, with the huge Parker Ranch. Be sure to check out the Parker Ranch Store, highly-rated Village Burger and Big Island Brewhaus. Merriman's is highly-touted for fine dining featuring local ingredients, but very pricey. There is also a KTA and a Foodland so you can pick up supplies. About halfway to Waipio, Honoka'a is a charming little town with a number of galleries, shops and antique stores. There's a small supermarket and Cafe Il Mondo has great pizza and calzones. Finally, don't overlook Laupahoehoe itself. The name means "Shelf of Lava" and that's what it is. The town used to be right there by the ocean, but a tsunami wiped it out in 1946 (see the monument) and now the town is further up the hill. There's a nice little park at the shore now and is a great place to have a picnic and maybe grill some fish or burgers.
