The property is in a very large subdivision of mostly 1 acre parcels and the climate is basically rain forest mitigated by the trade winds off the ocean, so the surrounding environment is very green and usually balmy and tranquil with the daytime skies are either cloudy to very cloudy or a brilliant blue or sometimes both and very dark at night.

The space

Situated on an acre of land that slopes gently downward toward a bluff at the ocean’s edge, the property offers a unique environment perfect for a peaceful and relaxing vacation experience. Enjoy the tranquility of the zen garden, long walks along the coastline, or simply sit and relax amid the serenity of a shady retreat between lily ponds. The property is fully landscaped with over 100 varieties of flora, including: bamboo, water lilies, fragrant flowers, ornamental vines, succulents, and fruit-bearing trees.

Take a relaxing dip in the Japanese-style soaking tub that spills over into a gorgeous, 42’ long, salt water, infinity edge lap pool. Soak up some sun or recline under an umbrella on a poolside lounge chair overlooking the ocean. The pool deck area includes an outdoor hot water shower.

When conditions are right, the snowy peak of Mauna Kea can be seen from the property, as can whales, dolphins, sea turtles, Nene and other species unique to Hawaii. Fishing is a common activity along the bluff.

Accommodations are in a luxurious oceanfront home offering spectacular views. The residential building includes the owners’ residence and two two bedroom apartments, one above the other. The two floor plans are identical and each has approximately 880 SF of living area. Both the upstairs and downstairs units can be rented as either a one- or two-bedroom unit. When rented as a one bedroom unit, the second bedroom and bathroom are closed off and remain unoccupied for the duration of the one bedroom guests’ stay.

For all the configurations, the maximum occupancy is two people per bedroom, so a one bedroom rental is limited to a maximum occupancy of two people and a four bedroom has a maximum occupancy of eight people, etc.

In all, there are 6 different configurations, with different nightly rates, that can be rented. They are:

Dan is super nice and friendly. His house in Hilo is a lovely place, the pool and hot tub are definitely great with awesome sea view. Dan helped us with almost any problems we have like laundry, cooking, etc. Will return if we visit big island again in the future!

Our stay was fantastic. Everyone we came across on the property were super friendly, right down to the guy that came to clean the infinity pool. If we ever come back to the Big Island will definitely give this place a consideration. Please note, you need to rent a car/SUV. There's nothing in the immediate vicinity for food. About a 15 mins drive to local eateries.

This is a beautiful home situated on coastal frontage with a wonderful walking path. This getaway is a gem. We saw whales pretty much every day. The owners keep it clean and are very hospitable. The area is residential and could use some more upscale restaurants but this rental has a wonderful outside cooking area if you desire to do your own grilling.

This home was absolutely incredible. Dan has gone above and beyond to make his home a true retreat for his guests. The home itself was extremely clean and was very well stocked with plenty of towels and some beach supplies. The unit we stayed in was very spacious and comfortable. The outdoor space was absolutely incredible. The views were some of the best that we saw on the island. We were even able to see a few whales while laying out at the pool! I definitely recommend staying here. The atmosphere truly felt like the Hawaiian vacation I was hoping for.

Dan's apartment was very thoughtfully designed and furnished beautifully. The rooms were spacious but we felt at home. The grounds were stunning and the views were picturesque. As a host, Dan was outstanding in his communication and helpfulness about the surrounding areas and activities. We cannot wait to return and would recommend this slice of paradise to anyone.

The setting was stunning and very peaceful. You really feel like you're on the edge of the world. The pool is beautiful and the grounds are lovely. Dan gave us some fresh eggs from his chickens that were delicious. We had a great time.
