Onomea Bay Cliffside Cottage has all the modern conveniences you'd expect in a high-end vacation rental. With sweeping ocean views from every room in the house, you'll spot whales passing by in winter and the distant lights of Hilo Bayfront. Even the private hot tub overlooks the cliffs and ocean!
The kitchen is fully equipped and features silestone countertops, a gas range and that fantastic view. Inside there is a dining bar to enjoy snacks, but the real treat is to dine out on the lanai!
The master bedroom has a king size Serta Perfect Sleeper Pillow Top bed and a flat screen TV. The bathroom features a beautiful tub for a relaxing soak as you stare at the unending ocean. There is an outside shower with bamboo privacy screens located on the bedroom lanai.
The living room boasts a giant, wall-mounted flat screen TV with DVD player for your entertainment (when you aren't enjoying the ocean view). PLUS a fabulous baby grand piano is tucked in the corner if you feel so inclined! The owners have also thoughtfully provided an iPod dock and high-speed Internet access.
PLEASE NOTE: We love kids and we want them to have a great time vacationing with you, but this may not be the best place for little ones to have a great, fun and safe stay. There is an honest-to-goodness cliff about 30 feet from the house, a built-in hot tub on the deck, and fragile decor items inside that could be hazardous to little hands and feet. Of course we defer to a parent's judgment but we need to be up-front the potential hazards.
There is so much to do in the surrounding areas if you can tear yourself away from the mesmerizing ocean view! Historic downtown Hilo, Rainbow Falls, Onomea Botanical Gardens, Umauma Botanical Gardens and Ziplines are all within a 10-minute drive, while Volcanoes National Park is less than an hour!
