About this listing
Wonderful little studio home set on top of a hill overlooking Hilo Bay. Best of "country" living with all the comforts of home- full kitchen, bath and comfortable queen size bed. Great place to relax after spending your day exploring Hilo town and the island!
The setting is amazing as we are on 30 acres with trails to the river on one side and the stream on the other. A wonderfully peaceful place that is ideal for both meditative and artistic inspiration and hiking.
Studio home with a petite footprint. Cozy and comfortable on 30 acres with organic garden, trails, waterfalls and sweet views of Hilo Bay.
Historic Hilo town is fun for shopping, movies and some great eating experiences. Our own small black sand beach with beautiful snorkeling and swimming is a 20 minutes drive and it's only 1 3/4 hours to the Big Islands longest white sand beach.
The property is peaceful and removed from the beaten path. Hike to the river or stream, retreat and relax, or take day trips to explore this dynamic island. I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay.
Guests have full access to the house (kitchen bath, etc) and are free to walk the grounds and explore. Feel free to try some mac nuts, bananas, or use some herbs from the garden when you cook!!
Interaction with Guests
Other friendly helpful people do live on the property( in small camps not visible from the house) so you may see them coming or going. We respect your privacy during your stay but will always be available for questions and guests are always welcome to join in for meals, star gazing or talk story around the fire if we are around!
Our neighborhood is beautiful and remote- all properties being reached via a one lane country road up the hill through macademia nut orchards. Large lots, nice neighbors, really great for walking with incredible views of Hilo Bay below. If you walk up high enough, you may even catch a glimpse of the caldera in Volcano!!
Beebs is a great host! She is a very friendly and loving small outside mutt that loves to have guests. Zena (older affectionate cat) is her sidekick. They get fed on the lanai each morning. Our caretaker is happy to take this simple chore but you are welcome to do if you please. Instructions are on our aloha list and you can arrange it with us. Your choice.
While we are located only 15 minutes from Hilo, we do recommend you have a car, as we are located on 30 acres off the beaten path.
Other Things to Note
There is no wifi in the house but great cell phone reception. I use a wifi hotspot on my phone for my laptop and iPad and it works great. There is a TV (very limited reception/channels) with a DVD player with plenty of movies to watch and relax at night.
We simply ask that you love and respect the home as we do. Please feel free to use what we leave you and clean up after cooking meals. We will take care of bedding, towels, and general clean up after you go. Mahalo!! Don't hesitate to ask for something you may need.
