Overview

About the property

From the moment you enter the 1/2 acre property, a sense of tropical wonder takes hold of you. Orchids grow off of the many tall palm trees that follow the winding path of the paved driveway. Exotic pink palms, blooming plumeria, and hibiscus with multi-colored gigantic flowers await, with huge Norfolk pines towering over this beautifully landscaped property.

At the front entrance to the home are koa and mango wood double doors which lead to a 1500sq foot outdoor centre courtyard, made of wood decking.

The deck is surrounded by the home on 3 sides, leaving one side open to view the palms and trees on the neighbors property, which has no home on it, and therefore complete privacy. A sliding glass door opens from each of the three main floor bedrooms onto this tropical paradise, with several large potted plants and trees. One of these bedrooms has its own area separate from the rest of the house, with its own full bathroom. Every bedroom also has large windows with custom louver window coverings, Martha Stewart bedding, and ceiling fans. And yes, the courtyard does boast a new 6 person 110 jet hot tub to relax even the most uptight one in the group. The private entrance to each bedroom off the courtyard gives a 'hotel-like' feel, perfect for a couples holiday retreat, or for a family with kids.

The ocean front view is breath taking. You cannot be closer to feel the raw power and energy of the bluest ocean, surrounded by smooth black lava cliffs. On this property, the lava has natural ledges allowing you to walk down to near the water's edge, as the waves roll and crash onto the rocky cliffs.

Try fishing off shore, explore the lava coastlines , or just sit on the natural lava rock chairs and watch the turtles right in front of you everyday, as they feed and tumble in the rolling waves. (If you catch one of the numerous whales that come by regularly in season, it's catch and release only!) Dolphins can also be seen throughout the year.

The ocean view is prevalent in almost every room in the house. The great room has full wall glass windows and sliding glass doors on both sides, allowing you to see the ocean view from the courtyard as you look through the great room.

The kitchen is very large, with koa wood cabinets with granite counter tops, and a large center island. The dining table seats 8 easily, and both the kitchen and dining area have spectacular ocean front views, making time in the kitchen actually a pleasure.

The master bedroom has perhaps the best views of all, with a private balcony and sitting area surrounded by windows and three glass sliding doors. If the sounds of the ocean don't lull you into the best sleep of your life, then you really do need a vacation!

Morning sunrise is worth getting up for, especially when Kona coffee is waiting for you. Evening always cools off nicely, allowing you to sleep comfortably as you hear the waves and feel the ocean breeze.

The Hilo side of the Big Island offers the most natural beauty, the REAL HAWAII, from water falls and rainforests, to active volcanoes, ocean tidal pools, natural hot springs, great restaurants in Pahoa hippy town, and much more, all just a short drive away.

This home will give you the privacy you expect, the excitement of the Pacific Ocean in the raw, and a close up view of the ocean's amazing creatures.

Do not pass by this incredible vacation home opportunity!

This was a wonderful place to stay due to its close proximity to the ocean and was one of the highlights of our vacation on the Big Island. It was unseasonably hot when we stayed here and unfortunately the fan in the master bedroom was not working so during the day was unbearably hot. They did have a couple of backups which we were able to use which helped during the evening but did not move enough air during day to cool the room. Unfortunately there is also not really a place I found that you could swim nearby due to the rocky cliffs and waves even though it is so close to water. Maybe we didn't look hard enough. We also had a lot of bugs in the evening and did have the typical bug pests typical of most places on the island. I would recommend putting all food in the refrigerator to keep them to a minimum. You have to pack your trash out since the house does not have garbage service but it was only a minor inconvenience. We loved waking up to the sound of the ocean and talk about a view! There are no bathtubs and only showers and the hot tub was awesome after each long day of hiking. It was also a great place to relax on rainy days. I would definitely recommend as long as you are okay with adjusting your behavior just a bit!

Paradise Home

  • 5 of 5

For the price of this vacation, we were amazed with what this home provided. I wouldn't have expected such nice accommodations, after dealing with the VRBO staff. We ended up getting to the house very late due to the missed directions the VRBO staff gave us. If they would have just given us the directions the home owners provided we would have been on time with the sun still shining, it's very dark in the area there are no street lights making this home difficult to fine in the dark. Thank goodness we finally talked with a VRBO supervisor who had the directions the owners provided. The house was very clean and had many new updates to it. We were there for the International Basketball Tournament.

It was awesome waking up to the sound of waves breaking on the lava rocks just steps away from the backyard and deck. We were thrill to have such great views from the upstairs balcony and from the kitchen and back deck area. The outdoor Jacuzzi was a real treat with lights for enjoyable night time soaks. The kitchen was updated modern and I want it in my home. The center island had a small sink and there was plenty of counter space. The house was large enough to have the winners of the tournament come and enjoy a BBQ and to celebrate with family and friends. When there were questions with the TV or other things the owner who was spending time in Canada had taken time to text us with info to fix or she had someone come to the house. Keeping the windows open kept the house fresh and cool. The house was within walking distance of tide pools where you can watch locals fish, exercise and just enjoy the beauty of their surroundings. Waking up on our last day was bittersweet none of us wanted to leave this paradise, but life is what it is.

Thank You Darryl and Deanne Burke for sharing your beautiful home with us in paradise. Hopefully we can return someday in the near future.

Perfect!

It was even more beautiful in person! My family loved gathering here. Perfect areas to talk - the big table outside, dining table, inner deck. The view was gorgeous- just as many turtles as promised. Everyone agreed that it was the best gathering spot

Slice of Heaven

Sleep listening to waves crashing and birds and insects chirping. Pretty house with gorgeous stained glass, stone countertops and lava stone wall effects.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect, exactly what we were looking for. Gorgeous views, quiet, spacious, and in a great location to venture out to multiple areas on the island. No issues with check in/out, very easy. The deposit is quite pricey, but was returned in a reasonable amount of time. Make sure you stock up on food, there really isn't anything close by, and Hilo is a good 30 minute trip. Would definitely recommend this property.

Picturesque Ocean Abode

  • 5 of 5

The first word that came to my mind when I walked through this wonderful little home was "scenic". Between the tasteful decor and the breathtaking view, I was thoroughly pleased with the overall aesthetics. My favorite part was walking out to where the waves crashed against the lava rock shore. It was honestly spectacular and very peaceful and I spent more than a few hours watching and listening. Inside, the property was also quite nice. All bedrooms had ample room with very nice showers/bathrooms. Although I did not soak in the hot tub, my family said it was rather restful. Also, the owner is very helpful and responsive to questions. All in all, it was an excellent choice for a vacation spot.
