View the lava flow that is about six miles east of the house and stopped at the Pahoa Transfer Station.

Enjoy watching the whales breach and the turtles play in the waves during the day. At night, let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep in this beautiful private home located in Pahoa. This custom two-story oceanfront, east-side of Hawaii, home is so close to the gorgeous Pacific Ocean you’ll feel like you are on a cruise ship. This 2800+ SF house has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and 180 degrees of unobstructed views where you can watch colorful sunrises and marine life like whales, dolphins, and turtles play in the ocean. Have an enjoyable Hawaiian vacation where you can listen to the waves and feel the ocean breezes. The home is located near the most eastern tip of the Big Island and due to tradewinds and sea breezes is almost always free of VOG (volcanic Haze) that affects the air quality in other parts of the island.

Our home has been lovingly prepared and will make even the most discriminating traveler happy. This home offers peace and relaxation in a dramatic setting with panoramic views of the ocean. Listen to the songs of myna birds at sunrise and sunset. Refresh yourself in the pool or go on a leisurely stroll in the nearby forest.

Located in a friendly neighborhood, and near a park, this location is great for taking walks, jogs, or bike rides. Or just kick back and relax on the lounge chairs and enjoy the sun and ocean breezes. Conveniently located just 10 minutes from the town of Pahoa which has many stores and restaurants to chose from. Just down the road is Isaac Hale beach Park & Pohoiki Black Sand Beach (swimming/surf spot), the Kaunana Lava Tubes, Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Farm, Boiling Pots, Shipman Beach and Uncle Roberts. Also close by is the Hawaii Volcano National Park.

We are located 30 minutes from Hilo airport. Check-in is 3:00PM & Check-out is at 10:00AM (unless other arrangements have been made). Directions will be e-mailed to you upon confirmation.

We are also offering, for a small fee, a traditional lei greeting upon arrival and grocery stocking so you can relax the moment you arrive. If interested, please inquire upon booking.

The property is as described in the listing. Beautiful backyard and view. But we couldn’t enjoy the view from the house because of the ocean sprays on the windows. We can go to the patios (upstairs and downstairs - nice), but it was very windy and a bit cold (about 68 to 70 degrees). Unfortunately, during our stay, it was cloudy and raining. The owner was quick in the response. Note: You should read the rental agreement before you pay.

Beautiful and spacious home, with amazing views. We would certainly stay here again.

Best location of anyplace we have stayed. Right on the waterfront where you can sit and watch the waves come in and break over the lava rocks. House was great size and couls easily fit two families. Only downside was something was left in the garbage disposal which had a strong odor. The two indoor garbage containers also had a strong odor from something that had leaked through the plastic bags from previous guests.

We stayed a week in this gorgeous home. It really does have 180 degrees of ocean view. The cooling ocean breezes were wonderful. On the ocean side, you hear nothing except the surf. On the other, you can hear birds. We saw a few whale pods and lots of green lizards. We even had a teeny crab come for a visit. The kitchen was very well equipped. It is a good 15 minute drive from the nearest stores. This whole side of the island is much more laid back than tourist trap Kona.

Our family of 5 was wowed the second we walked in the door! There was plenty of room for three teens to claim their spots and also space for the family to hang out together. Hearing and seeing the ocean crash into the rocks was magnificent. Enjoyed having a home base on this side of the island after some time in Kona. Wish we had more time in this fantastic house!

This was the 2nd time we stayed at Jennifer's home and we again enjoyed the view and house. It is in a great location with beautiful ocean views. Jennifer was also very responsive to our questions and requests and we would recommend her home for your beachfront stays!

This really felt like home, this house has everything a family needs, there is even a closet with snorkeling and beach equipment!! So much thought went into the three patios with chairs to watch the sunrise at the ocean edge. The waterfalls and shopping are near, and the house and neighborhood are beautiful! Ocean waves provide the perfect sound fir sleeping.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful vacation home. It was very well equipped and the pool was wonderful to relax around after a day of exploring. We enjoyed watching the turtles play in the waves. Jennifer was prompt with answering questions and providing information. I highly recommend this house for a vacation to the Hilo area.

Strange story, when we opened the door, there was a noise that I was just not used to hearing. I was wondering what it was. It was the ocean hitting the rocks right below the property. There was a huge smile when it took me 30 seconds to figure out what that noise was. This place is a fantastic place to stay. When you walk in, you see the ocean. The house has everything you need to stay for our long weekend. It is an inviting home and such a peaceful place to be. We had a plan to go to Volcanoes NP on the day before we leave. But those plans changed the evening before because this place is paradise. We just enjoyed the home, the pool, and the ocean. Some day, we will be back to Pahoa and my family hopes that this place is available.

We wanted a place right on the water on the east side of the Big Island to use as a base for exploring Volcano National Park, Hilo, waterfalls, etc. This was a great choice! It’s spacious, well equipped, and situated on the most gorgeous piece of coastline. Watching those waves crashing on the lava cliffs was mesmerizing, and falling asleep to the sound was wonderful. It’s in a great neighborhood for walking, and Pahoa has everything you need as far as groceries and restaurants.


Brandon M.

Had a great stay on the Hilo side. Property was clean and quiet….except for the thunderous waves crashing, which was exactly what we wanted. We’re able to sit and watch the ocean and a few turtles during the afternoon hours. Great place, thank you!

We will never forget the spectacular sunrises, coffee and meals on the lanai, the sounds of the ocean and an occasional rainbow. The home was wonderful, offering us space for my husband and I, along with space for his sister. Thank you, Jennifer, for sharing your home with us!

Amazing place. Woke up every morning to the sunrise right outside our slider and the sounds of birds. Slept all night to the sounds of the crashing waves. Slower pace then the larger towns. Would come again.

The house was impeccably clean. The property is breathtakingly beautiful, with 180-degree views of the ocean. We spotted turtles in the ocean. Our kid loved the swimming pool. Thank you for an unforgettable stay!

Amazing views and turtle watching was fabulous. Would recommend fans to be cleaned and consider installing air conditioning (muggy hot nights were hard to get a restful sleep). Homeowner and caretaker were great with communicating and offering recommendations for food, shopping and sight seeing

Lovely property in a great location. Really enjoyed being able to see the turtles from the patio. The neighborhood was quiet and easy to navigate. The guides left by the owner regarding things to do and places to eat were very helpful.

The pictures don’t do it justice. Outstanding property and owner. Jennifer was great to communicate with and their house is amazing. Very clean and well appointed with a pool and view that’s hard to beat. My daughter spotted sea turtles swimming just off the shore. We wouldn’t even look for another place to stay if we come back to Hawaii.

The house was perfect for our family! The grandparents had the upstairs and our family had the down. Beautiful, well laid out home, with so much space! The kids were in the pool three times a day! There were beach towels, pool toys and snorkeling equipment for us to use. The kitchen had everything we needed even a small cooler so we could picnic around the island. Well thought out house, beautiful neighborhood away from city noise. We fell asleep on comfortable beds every night to the sound of the waves. Beautiful!

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Big Island and our stay in this home was a large part of it! It is one of the best VRBOs we have stayed in. We were greeted by chocolates, macadamia nuts, and cookies on arrival which was a warm and unexpected welcome. The house is well equipped and maintained. The home was clean and smelled clean when we arrived. It also felt very spacious so we could spread out. There were helpful things like paper towels and Kleenex and extra trash bags. We had bought extra paper towels and toilet paper not knowing what there might be in the home. All the little touches were there. The views from the lanais are breath taking- like from a magazine. We could see sea turtles swimming from the back yard. The neighborhood is quiet and feels safe. We went on walks to a park that is just down the street and has more amazing views. Our family enjoyed time in the pool and the easy access to outdoor shower and downstairs bathroom/ laundry. There were helpful items like a cooler and beach toys, pool noodles, etc..to use outside by the pool. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking and you couldn’t have better views with meals by the ocean. The sound of the waves crashing against the rocks was fantastic as well. About 10-15 minutes away is a great grocery store, gas, and restaurants. Prices seemed fairly similar to those we saw in Hilo. In Hilo, there was a Target grocery store that had everything we needed to stock up for our trip. Thank you!

The property was clean and beautiful. The view was stunning. The solar heater had enough hot water for our family, the trade winds provided enough of a breeze to keep us cool . The last day we were there a tropical storm came and although it was very rainy and windy, I didn’t feel like we were unsafe in any way. It was difficult to keep things dry because of the humidity but that happens all over. I would highly recommend this place.

The home sits on an amazing piece of land with a beautiful view! The photos are representative of the accommodations. Be prepared to drive a bit for food and other supplies. It was a very comfortable place to stay. I would stay again!

-large -great views of ocean -saw turtles and dolphins -pool was a great bonus, with pool noodles -furniture was sparse, especially in living room, we had 6 people, seating for only 5 (squeezed) -could use more basic kitchen supplies, like salt and pepper, needs better prep knives. Also manual ice making. -tv in living space with cable would have been nice. -ocean waves are awesome, but it is loud at night -no AC and it can get a bit warm -overall we loved the place and our stay here!

The sound of the surf and the views from every room are just incredible. Loved the neighborhood. The host was very helpful. The house was stocked very well. Large master closet and bathroom and great space downstairs for two teens to have their own room, own TV room. etc. while it’s not close to Hilo, the town itself is not far and so pretty it was worth the drive to the zip lines north of Hilo and Volcano National Park to the south. Thank you for a lovely stay!

There were 4 of us and we each had our own room. The house was very clean and well stocked. We had everything we needed to cook our own meals. The house was very welcoming and the treats that were left for us were a great surprise after a long day of travel. Would love to come back and explore the area because we were very busy with our other plans! Thanks Jennifer for being such a great host!


Fred S.

This is our second visit to this house and it won’t be the last. The house is immaculate and the views are outstanding from the beautiful sun rise to the crashing waves. It is everything you could ask for. The house does not have air conditioning but you don’t need it. The ocean breeze cools everything very well. Slept with a light blanket every night.

This was our Christmas gift to ourselves and our children that was a year's worth of planning. Our first time to Hawaii for our family of five and the house was as close to perfect as you could get! We went during spring break March 11th thru the 18th and the weather was magnificent! The house clearly states there is no A/C - if you go during the warmer months the upstairs may get a little too warm for you, but if you are in Hawaii, it's going to be hot and humid. The downstairs stays nice and cool and the pool is perfect to cool off in after a full day of touring and exploring. The house had everything you need and expect to have for a rental house. We had a great time and would highly recommend this space. Jennifer gave us clear instructions for our arrival and sent helpful information regarding the area and things to do. You could try to describe the views from this house but words cannot adequately capture the amazing sunrise views each morning.

We left Maui with a beach front sand property and this cliff side property was amazing. We loved watching the whales and sea turtles from the front yard. It was a beautiful property, easy check in, spacious house.


Grant R.
March 2023
Loved staying on this side of the island. Everything was perfect down to the amount of towels left, cooler and ice to use, recycled plastic baggies. The house was very open and the bedrooms large - much different than most cramped rentals. All in all it’s the best place I’ve ever rented. Lovely neighborhood and close to local food/grocery/restaurants - make sure to read the owners helpful tips book! We did a lot of trips around the island but we were just as happy staying at our home away from home! Thank you Jennifer! We hope to return very soon!

We were pleasantly welcomed in the house with macadamian nut treats. That just started everything off right. Thank you! Most everything met our expectations at this ocean front rental. The place was clean, the kitchen had most everything my son-in-law chef needed to prepare meals (we were missing a coffee grinder though). We enjoyed listening to the crashing waves all day and night. The kitchen was roomy and the entire house had space for all of us 6 to spread out in. The beds were VERY comfortable and much appreciated. The pool was perfect for when we got home after a day of sightseeing. Such a treat! There were a few little things that were a bit frustrating. The drive out of and into Pahoa was longer than we anticipated. It took us 50 min. to an hour to drive to Hilo and 50 min to Volcano even though Hilo was only 19 miles away and Volcano only 13 miles. So our driving time was not expected. There is only one road in and out of Pahoa. But I do love the area. Another little complaint is that part of the cleaning for checkout time. The entire tile floor needed to be swept. We had only one broom to use and only a broom. For the amount of tile floor in that house it would have been helpful if there was an electric sweeper of some sort. My back was not happy after sweeping all that tile. I had to take several rest breaks. Just a suggestion. An electric vacuum/sweeper would have been wonderful. Thank you for sharing your ocean view home with us!

Great property right on the ocean in a very quiet part of town. Good access into Pāhoa, to Hilo, the coast and Volcanoes NP. Plenty of room for all of us! If it’s in the cards, we would gladly stay here again.

We had a lovely stay at this home. You can't beat the view, you can get lost just watching and listening to the waves. We had a couple small issues, but they resolved them super quick and were easy to communicate with. Overall great home to enjoy the east side of the Big Island.

Our visit started off rough when we could not access the house. We were able to reach Connie, and within 10 minutes we had assistance. There was a miscommunication on our arrival date, so the access code was not working and could not be programmed. The cleaning and maintenance crew had our departure date as our arrival date. Fortunately the house had already been cleaned, but it was sealed up and there was no air circulation, so it took quite a few hours for the house to cool down and air out. We were under the impression there was air conditioning, which there is not. There are ceiling fans, windows and a few floor fans (at least one does not work, and a second is marginal at best). Visually the house appears as it does in the pictures, very well maintained but somewhat dated cabinets, tile, etc. It is a bit off the beat and path, but it is a very quiet neighborhood other than the amazing sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks. The views and lanais are spectacular and with the sliding doors and windows open (sceeens are there), the house maintained a decent temperature and amazing ambiance with the ocean. We enjoyed nature. There is only one TV in the upstairs bedroom, and one king bed and a twin bed upstairs, with the additional beds downstairs. The steps are a bit steep so if you have family with mobility challenges, make sure the bed count works. If you want a peaceful and relaxing environment with amazing ocean views and don’t mind being a bit of a drive from restaurants and activities, it is perfect. It is a very reasonable drive to Volcanos Park, and 25 minutes to Hilo. Reality is that Hilo itself does not offer a lot of high end accommodations or central areas to spend much time in. Lastly, the home has a solar water heater, with an electric backup. We had a very overcast and rainy day and it did not provide adequate solar for water heating for two days. It is noted in the house instructions, but it didn’t register as a significant issue until the water was tempid and then it was too late. Also, there are some contradictions between the house book instructions and the VRBO instructions, such as the Wi-Fi network name and password. It was easily remedied when we called Connie, but updating all of this information would make things easier.



November 2022
Great house and location. We really enjoyed the lay out of the house, ocean views/crashing waves and the pool. Only two issues we had. Even with windows open, it still gets sticky from the humidity. AC would help. Also if you have a cloudy day, with solar panels for hot water, you will have cool showers in morning. We would like to come back again some day and are letting others know about this house when/if they come to the Big Island.

We enjoyed this spacious home with spectacular views of the ocean. We watched turtles in the surf every day! The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed. The pool was a wonderful way to cool off after long days exploring the island. If we are so lucky to get back to the Big Island we would definitely stay here again!

Jennifer's property was perfect for our family of 4. The kitchen and living room were spacious and modern, the bedrooms were large, and the pool overlooking the ocean was awesome. The cliff-side location was absolutely amazing and we could not be more pleased, the view was absolutely breathtaking. We could see sea turtles from the back yard. The house is conveniently located for groceries and close enough to activities like the beach and Volcano National Park, but far enough away from any noise. It was absolutely tranquil (except for a few loud birds and tree frogs(?)). Not having a/c did take a little getting used to but once the sun went down and the cooler evening breeze started, it was fine. Highly recommended.

August 2022
We enjoyed our stay at this ocean front get-a-away! The owners were accommodating. The house is very spacious. We woke up to gorgeous sun rises!! We were lucky to watch the sea turtles swimming in the waves below! It was a ways away from Hilo which we were aware of when we booked so we generally packed up for the day if heading there. Overall was great. We would stay there again!


April S.
August 2022
This home had the best view of any house we’ve ever stayed at. Sunrise on the lanai every morning watching the waves and coastline was incomparable! Pahoa was very friendly and welcoming. Jennifer was also very informative on where to visit, I learned a lot from her site. We would definitely stay again!


Fred S.
August 2022
This property sits at the edge of the ocean with the most spectacular views! The home is fully equipped with everything you need and the layout of the house is perfect for two families. The main level has the living room, dining and kitchen area along with the master bedroom with full bath, and another twin room and half bath. There is not one, but two lanais overlooking the beautiful crashing waves and sea turtles. The lower level, which opens onto another lanai by the pool, has two bedrooms and and sitting area. The communication with the owner is great. We enjoyed it so much, we have booked it again next April.

Spacious, well-maintained, and very clean home on a beautiful rocky shore. Sunrises were amazing. Nice covered lanais are well furnished. Pool is great and relaxing - swam and used the floating hammock nearly every morning for those “zen” moments listening to the waves. Excellent communication and helpful information from the owner. Ocean breeze, sounds of the waves, and ample fans made for comfortable sleeping even in July.

The process to rent the home was so easy and communication was great! The house was incredible we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay for our family vacation. Even though it doesn’t have a/c we slept in comfort with the windows open and fans on. I feel like that’s a plus because waking up to the sound of the waves and birds singing was truly waking up in paradise. We would be more than happy to stay here again!


Ashley C.

We loved the views of the ocean and listening to the waves crashing! The home was very clean and had everything you would need. We had an issue with the lock on the front door and were able to reach Connie. She was already aware of the problem and took care of it quickly. Jennifer, the property owner, was very responsive and helpful as we were planning our vacation. The location was great for our family because we like a quieter vacation and not so "touristy", but others may want more activities close by so they should consider the Kona side of the island. We did quite a bit of driving, but there wasn't any traffic and it was easy to get around. You will need a rental car on this side of the island. We would definitely stay here again!


Linda T.

Beautiful, spacious home. No air conditioning, but the rooms upstairs had large windows and was very comfortable. The two ladies in our group who slept downstairs said they got a. It warm during the night, but with the fans, they were ok.


Eric K.
June 2022
Excellent home and location next to the ocean. The home is located close to groceries and shopping, but far enough away you feel secluded from the business of Hilo. Having your own pool while being next to the ocean really made us feel relaxed. More relaxed than we would if we stayed at a busy resort. They had everything we would need at the house for any daily trips we went on or while at the house. I would definitely recommend this home and Jennifer was easy to communicate with if I had any questions.

Thankful for this time away with our family. Spectacular views….turtles every afternoon…a peaceful pool for afternoon dips…awesome! Close enough to stores when needed and very friendly neighbors we met while on our daily walks. My aunt and uncle visiting from France still can’t get over waking up to such a glorious view. Thank you for our stay!

This is the 1st time we have visited the East Coast of Hawaii, and we fell in love with it! The house is fantastic! Gorgeous view, nice pool, spacious home, comfortable beds and a well-stocked kitchen. We especially loved watching the sea turtles ride the waves as they foraged for food. A quiet neighborhood and only 15 minutes from town. We had great weather, and it was the middle of May! Will be back.


Kathleen K.

My family from Michigan stayed here while visiting me in Hawaii. They loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves and the beautiful sunrise over the ocean. Having the two different floors allowed privacy for the two couples staying here. Overall, a great place to stay and highly recommended.

This property is absolutely AMAZING!! It is a must rent!! The house is huge, it’s clean and smells wonderful!! Yes, it’s smells wonderful! You have everything you need to have an awesome vacation. The pool was so relaxing and the views of the ocean from every room was peaceful. At night I feel asleep to the sound of the waves. I can’t wait to go back. The area around the property was just as beautiful and it is quiet which is what I was looking for. The property is close to the beaches, Volcano Park and stores. There was also a binder with plenty of information about the area, where to eat, shop, beaches and activities which was extremely helpful. Did I mention how clean and spacious the house is 🤯??? There was everything I needed and then some. The appliances are top of the line stainless steal and modern. I know this review is all over the place but there is so much to say and my body clock is on Hawaii time 🤣🤣🤣. Thank you soooooo much Jen for trusting my family with your house. I can’t wait to rent again. 😁 Mahalo

Our goal was to relax and this was a great place to do it. We caught two beautiful sunsets, enjoyed hearing the roar of the surf in our ears, and went on day trips around Hilo. The king beds have comfortable mattresses and the kitchen worked well for us (use the bamboo sticks in the entryway if you, ahem, set off the smoke alarm cooking, say bacon…and need to reach it 😊). The view on clear days is truly amazing!!

Great house on the water - hearing the crashing of the waves made for great sleeping. Plenty of room, well equipped and clean. Did i mention the views? Well, i should. Amazing. If traveling in the "winter" (relative for Hawaii) do not expect the pool to be hot tub warm, rather chilly. Good location for trips to Volcano National Park (a must, especially if the lava is still flowing - and go at night for a once in a lifetime experience). Close enough to Hilo for short trips, and close to some great farmers markets that have fruit/veggies that this Northerner had never seen or had a clue what they were. Ask, they are glad to explain. Host was very easy to deal with and communicate with as well.

The home was large and lovely with a well-equipped kichen. The sea breeze kept us comfortable, and we enjoyed cooling off in the pool. We enjoyed walks in the neighborhood which was quiet and beautiful, and there is a small park nearby. We could view sea turtles in the ocean below, which was awesome.

We had a great time here. It’s a beautiful, well-equipped home, and you can tell that the owners have kids and are thoughtful about what families need. Everything was amazingly clean and orderly when we arrived. We’re already planning next year’s Big Island trip and hope we’ll be back!

This was our third stay at this beautiful home, and it is still one of the best view locations we have encountered. We communicated with the owner and were able to gain access early as we were traveling from the Kona side of the island with refrigerated food. The home has everything we needed for a comfortable stay, from the bed to the kitchen and pantry. The property location is good and the area is quiet. We especially enjoyed the views from the living room and the two lanais go on forever. It didn't take us long to become familiar with the Roku television entertainment system.

Jennifer’s house is fantastic! Being right on the water was amazing. I loved listening to the waves crashing. The house is very spacious and comfortable and Jennifer was a great house. She replied quickly and went out of her way to make sure everything was in order for our stay. Her travel guides were also very helpful. We would love to stay here again in the future and recommend this house to others.

Dramatic location above cliff into ocean. Heavy surf when we were there, and some rain. House was beautiful location and mostly well equipped. We enjoyed out time there.

The sounds of the ocean here were so beautiful. The waves always looked huge and powerful, and being able to watch them from our own lanai was amazing! The home was clean and comfortable, and the pantry had everything we needed to cook with. Beautiful little beach parks nearby, too, and we had some lovely morning walks. We jumped in the pool once but were too wimpy to stick it out (chilly!)--but it didn't matter, we had the best time anyway. Thank you so much for sharing your home!

Loved everything about this place. Its spaciousness, its location, its location, its location. Loved sitting on the rock wall watching the waves crash on the rocks and the occasional turtle or dolphins swimming by. Easy drive into Hilo. But especially liked exploring the roads to the new black sand beach, the old black sand beach, (Kehana), and the roads the just end because of the new lava. Did I mention that I loved the location?

Booking with VRBO can be tricky sometimes. Even if a place has good reviews, there can be some unexpected letdowns. Lack of privacy, unfavorable mattresses, noise, and misrepresented size of accommodation, are a few examples. This property is an exception to this. It is exactly what is depicted and more. Clean, comfortable, full of amenities, lovely veiws, BIG, and the communications with the owner were prompt and fantastic. If you're still debating whether or not this is the right place for you. Stop. Just book it. You'll enjoy all it has to offer. Have a wonderful trip!

Property was very nice and is right on a lava cliff on the ocean. It was wonderful sitting back and listening to the waves crash against the rocks. Inside and out is well kept. Half an hour to Volcano National park and half hour to Hilo give or take. Nice location to explore those locations, several falls and botanical gardens. Would highly recommended staying here.

The two story house had amazing views from both levels of the house. My husband & I and another couple stayed stayed here. Our friends stayed upstairs while my husband & I stayed downstairs. We both feel asleep to the sounds of the ocean every night. Definitely can’t wait to come back and stay here again!

The place was amazing. What a view when you walk through the front door. House was spacious and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Sitting out on the Lanais every day was awesome. Just watching and listening to the waves was great. House is close to stores and restaurants so that was convenient. A great base to stay at while enjoying the Big Island. Will definitely be going back!

Private and dynamic property with waves crashing against the lava bank just 50’ from the house. Puna area is fascinating, property is just six miles from the town of Pahoa. Groceries and restaurants are easy to access. Hilo is about 40 minutes away and Volcano is about 50 minutes in the opposite direction. The central location worked well for us. Amenities well thought out and available for guests. Furnishings comfortable and appropriate for the house. Pool is for adults or competent younger swimmers as there is very little shallow water.

We absolutely loved the experience staying in the beautiful home. Being able to hear and see the ocean and feel the ocean breeze was unparalleled. Standing on the rock wall looking at the waves crash will always be one of my favorite moments. And communication with the host was absolutely amazing.

This is a spacious house, lots of room, and huge master bedroom. There are two patios, one good for morning sunrises, which are just awesome, and the other in the evening because you can see more waves crashing there. Internet was great, key for a family of five at end of the day. A good value for a house on the ocean, and with a nice pool! Highly recommend!

We loved it! Hope to return soon. Smack on the ocean. The crashing waves were amazing. The pool was perfect— warmer than most pools. Wonderful breezes all day long. Quiet area. Treat yourself to this amazing place!

Amazing view and great location for exploring Hilo, Pahoa, and VNP. Property owner and near by caretaker were extremely responsive with any issues we had, which we very much appreciated. We had to go to the store for Kleenex and shower soap as neither were provided. The kitchen was one of the best stocked kitchens we’ve ever seen on a VRBO stay! My family enjoyed the pool, even in the rain!

We enjoyed our short stay on the Hilo side. The house is a bit off the beaten path, but was a great home base for exploring Volcanoes and Hilo.

This home and neighborhood is simply spectacular. Serene, beautiful and a great place to take morning walks. We loved how spacious, clean and inviting the home is and would love to return for another vacation. Moya, the caretaker was also very helpful! Thank you!
