About this listing
This is a beautifully furnished one bedroom suite, with a nicely equipped kitchenette, full refrigerator, washing machine, tiled shower, and a lovely, romantic sunken bedroom with queen size bed. The Suite is approximately 800 square feet, with additional covered space on the lanai.
The Suite is one-half of the Ohana (second home) on my property, located approximately 10 miles south of Hilo. It is very private from both the main home and the adjacent portion of the ohana, and surrounded by tropical greenery. Yet I am always close by for advice on travel ideas, restaurants, shopping, etc.
The location is very easy to get to, and is perfect for traveling and sightseeing the entire Big Island, from viewing the active lava flow near Kalapana, great snorkeling and swimming at Kapoho and the Ahalanui Hot ponds, to Volcano National Park, Hilo and the Hamakua coast.
The Suite would make a lovely honeymoon destination, as well as a romantic weekend getaway. The neighborhood is rural, and the property is located at the end of a small street, so it is always quiet and peaceful.
Great restaurants abound in the small village of Pahoa, in Hilo Town, and in Volcano Village. Farmers' markets are nearby, as well as basic food and sundry shopping in the small town of Kea'au and in the Orchidland neighborhood. The public bus stop is a short walk to Highway 130, and buses run regularly to Hilo, Kona, and other island destinations.
We have a peaceful, secluded spot here and want to make sure it stays this way. So please be courteous and aware of others staying on the property.
Keeping the Suite clean and bug-free is also very important, so please follow my written instructions on how to handle various types of rubbage and recycling.
If you're doing laundry, please use the clothesline on the lanai if the weather permits.
We are nearby for any questions or concerns you have, so please feel free to stop by and chat.
I grew up in California, and came to the Big Island of Hawaii 9 years ago. I love plants and food, children and animals, art and photography. I would love to travel to Europe again, but first I hope to travel to Asia: China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, and to eat my way through every delicious region!
But until then, meeting people from all parts of the world as they travel to our beautiful, welcoming island is just perfect!
