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:

Incredible location. The property is exactly as described, with amazing ocean views. One of the mornings we stayed there we enjoyed quite a show by some dolphins swimming and jumping in front of the house. The swimming pool and outdoors area were fantastic. The check in and communication with the host were a breeze and they were super responsive. The place is great to explore the south-east side of the island, lead than an hour away from the national volcano park and the lava flow into the ocean.

Dan's home is a very unique place. It's so quiet and peaceful. It's right next to the ocean so you'll wake up and fall asleep hearing the waves. At night, you'll also get to experience the sounds of the rainforest outside of your window. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for some peace and relaxation.

We were looking for a couple key things for our Hawaiian vacation: Relaxation, Privacy, and Quiet - essentially the exact opposite of the typical resort experience. This is location met all of our expectations and more. The space itself had an air of hotel-like professionalism yet still felt homey and welcoming. The absolute best part was the pool! We hope to return someday!

Paradise found! If you're looking for a peaceful, precious and pristine place to rest your head during your stay on Hawai'i, look no further! Believe the pictures -- it's that beautiful.

Dan's place is beautiful, quiet, and remote. Perfect for a getaway spot. The apartment and the grounds were immaculately clean and fully stocked with all the kitchen gear we needed. Dan was easy to get a hold of and accommodating to our needs. His place is about 25 minutes from Hilo, so it's a bit of a drive to any restaurant or major grocery store.

Dan's place is a very high end establishment. The pool and hot tub are amazing, the grill heats up fast, and laundry is nice to have! We saw whales from our second floor space, the wave crashing is something spectacular, and the house is super close to the active volcano! We will definitely be back, I highly recommend it!

For 30 years I traveled around the world for pleasure and business. Formerly an executive in a division of one of the major US hotel companies, I've lived in Hawaii since 1995 and when I retired in 2010, my wife and I moved to the part of Hawaii (and the world) we liked best.
