Aloha! Pat grew up on Oahu and Brenda was raised in Hong Kong. We've lived in northern Utah for many years, and are so happy to be fulfilling our dream of moving (back) to Hawaii with this new house in Pahoa. We chose this neighborhood for the friendly local environment, easy-going “country” lifestyle and proximity to Pahoa town and Hilo city. Brenda loves snorkeling and Pat is an old surfer boy, and we both love soaking under the stars and palm trees at Ahalanui so this is a perfect spot for us. This is our first vacation rental property, so please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your visit more comfortable and enjoyable! Mahalo and best of luck on your Big Island vacation!
