The space
Hale Ilio Himeni is truly a perfect island homebase for romantic adventures, family gatherings and simply relaxing.

Hale Ilio Himeni offers flexible space to sleep up to 8 guests. Plenty of open space for safe congregation and fun, and private spaces to get away.

Step through the double glass front doors into a large family gathering space. Opposite, a wall of glass sliding doors open to the expansive ocean views and fresh air. The space is centered by an enormous Koa wood slab kitchen island fronting a fully equipped kitchen.

The house has been sprinkled with Hawaiiana artwork and furniture from historical places such as the Volcano House. There's a pool table for fun, satellite TV and Wifi. Or just relax and enjoy the view.

Step up into the historical portion of the house to find 3 sumptuous sleeping quarters separated for privacy, each with its own character and outstanding amenities.

The Ocean Suite is a spacious bedroom (275sqft) and ensuite bath. Laze in your king bed and watch the sunrise over the ocean. Private toilet closet and sink vanity in room.

The Spa Bath, shared by all, includes a custom steam shower, and is a luxurious place to linger. Stand under a rain shower with body sprays, or have a seat and relax in steam.

The Garden Suite (260sqft) is on the mauka (mountain) side of the house with it's own entrance from the covered parking. A queen size bed and sitting area with full-size futon for extra sleeping space. This suite also has a private entrance to the Spa Bath.

The Reading Room (110sqft) is a small room which can be used for quiet time away from the family room, or can be arranged as extra sleeping space for 1-2.

Outside you’ll find manicured lawns, a kitchen garden, flowering plants, and fruit trees. The property also offers covered parking for rainy days and storage for beach and fun equipment.

Location

Hilo, Hawaii, United States

Kaiwiki sits on the green slopes of Mauna Kea. This area was settled by sugar caning workers and the old sugar cane fields were broken into smaller farming lots of various sizes. It is quiet with sounds of chickens, birds, and nature.
