Great atmosphere, we loved the house and location. The propane stove is a real bonus! The open layout of the house allows for great energy flow and the skylight is awesome. Having the pool outside was super nice. Within walking distance to Kehana Beach and sometimes dolphins!

This house is super unique and private, and in a great location for the Hilo side of the island. It's close to flowing lava, cool lava tube hiking, a super fun night market (Wednesdays), some volcanicly heated pools, and a black sand beach across the street. The house has just …
