The only way to stay closer to the ocean would to be in a boat. Relax and watch the cruise ships slowly pass by knowing that the passengers aboard are truly envying your luxurious accommodations. An awesome 180 degree view of the Pacific awaits.

The space

Walk through the front door into a vaulted great room with expansive windows looking out to the ocean and all that it has to offer. Hardwood floors, granite kitchen counters, two separate bedroom/bath suites each with its own deck from which to enjoy the cool breezes from the ocean. The spacious oceanfront deck of the house also has an outdoor sink/bar for outdoor entertaining. The home is furnished with high quality furniture that has been handcrafted using several different types of Hawaiian hardwood, lots of beautiful artwork and comfortable furniture. The only thing you will hate about this house is leaving!

Guest access

The house features two spacious bedrooms each boasting its own private bath and private lanai. In the living area, a nice and comfortable futon makes for a third bed. There is also a fabulous, outdoor shower just off of the Hamakua bedroom. The house allows for comfortable housing for up to five guests dependent on the sleeping arrangements.

While both the Pali Lani Seaside Lodge and The Loft at Pali Lani vacation rentals are located on the same nearly 2 acre paradise, they are distanced far enough apart that privacy is not an issue. They do share a common parking area however each has it's own separate entry, lock, etc.

Steve's house has a best view with spacious and clean rooms. It is about 20min drive to Hilo downtown and airport. It is a really wonderful experience. If you see this house available, don't hesitate and book it.

Spectacular view as you enter the home. Steve is super helpful and very nice. Very quiet, peaceful place. Did I mention the view? Large open middle area and kitchen between two bedroom wings.

We rented out the entire property (house and loft) for our family trip, and I wouldn't change a thing. I highly recommend making this your vacation destination. Pali Lani is -in a word- PICTURESQUE! The property is just as beautiful as the photos, if not better. My family was constantly commenting on how gorgeous the house and view were. The home and loft were luxuriously spacious and extremely well equipped to accommodate our entire party, including the kitchen! All we did was buy our groceries. Pali Lani had everything else we needed to cook our own gourmet meals and not worry about having to eat out every night. The property is located right down the street from the post office and a quaint residential neighborhood, but it still "feels" private and secluded. That being said, the drive to Hilo was breathtaking and surprisingly quick. We didn't take time to stop, but we noticed a bunch of small stores within a few miles of the house. There's also an adorable fruit stand along the road on the way to the property that sold really yummy lychee. If you have ANY questions about Pali Lani, just ask. There's a reason Steve is a "super host." Simply put, he earned it! He was so helpful and communicative throughout the entire booking process. He replied to our many emails and texts right away and sent us all the info we needed well in advance of our actual arrival. The morning we flew in, Steve sent a courtesy email and kept in touch with us right up until we met him at the property. I can't say enough about how much I appreciate how responsive and accommodating he was! We are beyond happy with our stay and are already talking about staying there again! Just a few things to note: If you're afraid of lizards you may want to talk with Steve before booking. We saw several Madagascar lizards hanging out in the house throughout our stay. I think they're beautiful and enjoyed watching them, so their visits were welcomed. Other than that, there were no pest problems and ABSOLUTELY ZERO roach sightings... which could almost be considered a miracle in Hawaii! The house can feel hot and muggy even with the windows open, the ceiling fans on and a good breeze blowing outside. We planned a lot of indoor family activities and wanted to enjoy the house itself... but it's Hawaii... in June... so mostly poor planning on our part. While the heat was a little unexpected, it was not unbearable; we just brought one of the floor fans in the living room to move more air around. Next time we'll do more errands and exploring during the day, then plan to cook and spend time together in the house at night... or even buy a little pool for the kiddos to play in and BBQ outside (the entire yard is GORGEOUS!). This may be something to consider if you're also staying during the...

Along with Helen, the owner, I love to share the aloha spirit and the many beauties that Hawai'i and the Old Sugar Mill Plantation have to offer. We are so happy to see our guests enjoying the home whether it be by relaxing and reading a book on their private lanai or walking throughout the lush 26 acres picking delicious fruit straight from the trees.

We anxiously look forward to greeting you upon your arrival, giving you a quick tour and then allowing you to enjoy your stay.
