This spacious garden level apartment in our home, just a beautiful non-stop 5 minute drive north of downtown Hilo, has a big bedroom with both king and queen size beds, nicely furnished and looks out into a big, lush, beautiful backyard bordering a small river gorge. There's even stairs from the yard down to a short walk to the stream in the gorge where you could swim, with three waterfalls!
Nicely furnished large (nearly 800 SF) one bedroom unit with both king and queen beds, so can very comfortably sleep up to 4, on a beautiful river gorge with nearby waterfall and swimming pond. You'll have a full bathroom with tub/shower, kitchenette (no full-size range), private patio, shared sauna, cable TV, DVR and Wi-Fi. Lush quiet surroundings, yet only 5 minutes to downtown Hilo. Windows look out at beautiful large, landscaped yard - like having your own private tropical rain forest. Parking available for one car only.

Acesso de hóspedes
The whole apartment, the laundry area in the garage (dryer is coin-op, washer is not) as well as access to bikes and snorkel gear and boogie boards in the garage, the rear patio with table and chairs and the huge back yard (and even the stairs leading down to the adjacent river gorge with waterfalls and area where one could swim). The river gorge is not on our property, swim at your own risk, of course. There is also a shared dry sauna available upstairs upon request. Electric costs in Hawaii are outrageous, so we may have to charge a small fee of $5 if you'd like to use the sauna.
Interação com hóspedes
I am only rarely on-site, unfortunately, as we live primarily in San Francisco currently, and our manager Todd, after five years living there, now has his own house elsewhere, but comes frequently to maintain the property, clean between guests, etc.
Outras coisas a ter em conta
The property actually consists of two lovely homes, connected by a covered lanai. A wonderful, older couple live in the original home and the newer, three level home is primarily for occasional vacation rental so that we can come visit when able to do so.
Please never park off the concrete. The gravel/paved roads out front are actually an easement for our neighbors up the hill and can never be blocked.
Like most of the Big Island, there are tiny, vociferous Coqui frogs that you will hear at night. It's the tropics, relax and enjoy their song! ;-)
No Smoking. Quiet hours from 9 pm to 7 am, please be courteous of others who may be staying on the property. No use of covered lanai between the two houses, but backyard free for your use as well as back patio. No parking off concrete. If wish to use the sauna, please ask permission to schedule an available time.
We're two dads, originally from Utah & Virginia (with two beautiful daughters, ages 10 and 14) who enjoy traveling and meeting others and now also sharing our homes in San Francisco & Hawaii with others. It's wonderful to associate with a diverse group of people from many places and cultures. So far we've lived in Germany together and in Thailand, Korea, Sweden and Nigeria separately. We are happy to hear and share your experiences or just leave you alone in peace and quiet, as you prefer! Our homes are comfortable, welcoming and we'd be happy to host you!
