  • Romantic Oceanfront Modern Cottage Overlooking the Pacific (with AC)

    Onomea Bay Cliffside Cottage has all the modern conveniences you'd expect in a high-end vacation rental. With sweeping ocean views from every room in the house, you'll spot whales passing by in winter and the distant lights of Hilo Bayfront. Even the private hot tub overlooks the cliffs and ocean! The kitchen is fully equipped and features silestone countertops, a gas range and that fantastic view. Inside there is a dining bar to enjoy snacks, but the real treat is to dine out on the lanai! The master bedroom has a king size Serta Perfect Sleeper Pillow Top bed and a flat screen TV. The bathroom features a beautiful tub for a relaxing soak as you stare at the unending ocean. There is an outside shower with bamboo privacy screens located on the bedroom lanai. The living room boasts a giant, wall-mounted flat screen TV with DVD player for your entertainment (when you aren't enjoying the ocean view). PLUS a fabulous baby grand piano is tucked in the corner if you feel so inclined! The owners have also thoughtfully provided an iPod dock and high-speed Internet access. PLEASE NOTE: We love kids and we want them to have a great time vacationing with you, but this may not be the best place for little ones to have a great, fun and safe stay. There is an honest-to-goodness cliff about 30 feet from the house, a built-in hot tub on the deck, and fragile decor items inside that could be hazardous to little hands and feet. Of course we defer to a parent's judgment but we need to be up-front the potential hazards.  There is so much to do in the surrounding areas if you can tear yourself away from the mesmerizing ocean view! Historic downtown Hilo, Rainbow Falls, Onomea Botanical Gardens, Umauma Botanical Gardens and Ziplines are all within a 10-minute drive, while Volcanoes National Park is less than an hour!

  • Heaven's Door; Your Hawaii Dream Awaits You. Private Home, Stream, Lake & Koi

    *Hawaii State Transient Accommodation License: TA-071-457-9968-01 *Hawaii State General Excise Tax License: GE-071-457-9968-01 We are very proud we have ALL 5-STAR reviews since first opening in 2007! To our potential guests we say.....'Noho Ka Moe'uhane' or 'Live the dream'...If you are coming to the Hilo side of the Big Island to see waterfalls and experience the magnificent beauty of Hawaii's tropical wonders then this completely private and romantic property is for you. Save the beach experience for Maui, Kauai or Oahu. With a year round stream, small private lake teaming with fish and a second koi pond right outside your bedroom window this is the tropical Hawaii you only see in movies; unspoiled and totally private, just you and the sights, sounds and smells of a lush green tropical paradise. This home is located in one of the most pristine tropical areas on the Big Island called the 'Gold Coast' (only two minutes off the main road). Passing through the gates, you drive along a private 425 foot long driveway surrounded by giant tree ferns, 100 ft. tall palms, wild mango and avocado trees and a beautiful year round spring fed stream. This is the first time since it was built that this unique private estate has ever been offered as a vacation rental. Don't settle for a B&B and/or sharing a home with owners or other guests on the same property. This gated 2 acre property is 100% private...Just you and nature. Come...Live Your Dream...Live Aloha (To Read More; click MORE DETAILS) Heaven's Door has a lovely, 2/bedroom, 2/bath cedar home on it. It is the perfect romantic location for people who want to get away from it all. Fall asleep to the ramble of the stream running over the boulders and the sounds of the tropical jungle at night then wake to native Hawaiian birds singing and flitting from tree to tree in a stunning tropical forest. Heaven's Door is also very comfortable with 2 couples who want to enjoy the unique sights and sounds of a true jungle paradise. Build a romantic fire in the fireplace or enjoy the private indoor cedar sauna (best with two but comfortable with four). The large master bedroom welcomes you with a comfy Pillow Top King size 'Perfect Sleeper' and in-suite master bath. Both bathrooms have full size tubs and showers. The second bedroom offers you a Queen Size pillow-top bed with a view of the lower pond and the sounds of 'liquid chatter' as the stream rambles by all year round. There is also a 'full size stacked' washer/dryer combo located inside the master bath suite. The master bedroom has a second koi pond just outside the large picture window where you can watch the koi. Both bedrooms look out onto a beautiful year round stream that runs completely along the perimeter of the property. There is a 79,000 gallon small lake, teaming with fish, both HUGE 30 year old Koi and GIANT Talapia, just outside the front door. You can feed the fish if you like, they do have two automatic fish feeders that dispense food to them twice daily but they always enjoy an extra treat from our guests. There is also an outdoor shower (cold only) for those who like to enjoy nature at its best. Just outside your living room windows, across the pond there is a weeping wall, constantly running water down its rough lava face. These unique natural water features are often called 'Pele's Tears'. It is said of 'weeping walls' that 'Pele' the Hawaiian Fire Goddess who created the 'aina' (the land) is weeping for her children (the islands). We often see a beautiful and rare Hawaiian Hawk the 'Io (Pronounced...'Eo). She likes to come in the mornings and hunt crayfish out of the stream. Watch her from your morning breakfast table as she perches on one of the large stream boulders and enjoys her catch. There are only an estimated 1400-2100 of these beautiful birds of prey left in the Hawaiian Islands, most of those are here on the Big Island. This lovely private property invites you to become 'one with the aina' (the land). The entire 2+ acres is it's own secluded valley and offers you absolute privacy. It cannot be seen by any other house and has only one private gated access. This vacation rental gives you the ultimate get away from it all experience without driving out to the middle of nowhere. We are close to the main Hwy. 19, very easy to find and NO 4-WD vehicle necessary. Although this is a tropical rainforest property we are NOT 'off the grid' like most similar water feature properties are. This house has Hawaii County Water and Electricity, we are NOT dependent on solar panels, generators or catchment water as many stream and water feature properties are. Unfortunately there is no cable TV offered in this area but we do have an extensive collection (over 300 titles) of DVD's including many boxed HBO and TV Series. We offer free Wi-Fi internet access via Verizon Modem and Cradlepoint Wi-Fi router. Internet service is reliable but depends on a cellular connection and is rather slow by todays standards. Not capable of streaming video or movies, but OK for checking your emails. Remember....You're on vacation:) You may find cheaper or more expensive rentals but there's only one "Heaven's Door"....Since first offering this property in 2006 as a vacation rental, we've had100% 5-Star reviews. That many years of positive reviews can't be wrong. Location...Location....Location...."Heaven's Door" is very centrally located to all your sightseeing needs. The Hilo side of the Big Island is truly unique and offers unparalleled sightseeing. This property is located just off Hwy. 19 and is close to numerous waterfalls; Umauma Falls & two different zip line adventures, are all a short 3 min. drive away, Kolekole Park (5 min.), Akaka and Kahuna Falls (10 min.), Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots (25 min) and beautiful Onomea Bay as well as Onomea Botanical Gardens (10 min.) and only 20 minutes from the quaint historical Hilo Town. Pick up local fresh fruits and vegetables at the wonderful Hilo farmers market Wed. & Sat. are their big days but there are always a few vendors during the the rest of the week. Take a drive up to Volcano's National Park and experience Madam Pele (Hawaiian Goddess of Fire) up close and personal. Hike out to where the 'Aina' (land) is being born as Kiluea flows hot molten lava into the ocean. Check with the Park Rangers before hiking and you can also get updates on lava flows, etc. at USGS.GOV then navigate to Hawaii Volcanos Natl. Park. Come...Share our piece of paradise and live the Hawaii dream! Due to the fact that some future guests may be allergic, this rental is Non-Smoking! *Unfortunately no children under 18 are allowed due to insurance restrictions because of the ponds & stream. One of our guests did a complementary video of Heaven's Door during their stay. See the video link on this page. Click the 'Video' tab, located just above the main photo on this webpage. The video mostly focuses on the interior of the house and not so much on the unique surroundings of this tropical paradise. Check out our 61+ All 5-Star previous guest reviews dating back to 2006. NEVER SEND WIRE TRANSFERS! We do not ask for wire transfers. Beware of scams!

  • Creekside cottage: peace, privacy, ocean view

    Perched above a spring-fed babbling brook on 20 private landscaped acres, the Creekside Cottage offers the peace, serenity, privacy and nature that will melt away your stress. Ten miles (15-20 minutes) from downtown Hilo, on the lush and scenic Hamakua Coast with ocean views. Perfect for a couple seeking a romantic getaway. Escape from the tourist traps and the hustle-bustle of city life, and relax in the vibrant natural environment of authentic Hawaii. No city lights to dim the night sky: great star-gazing! Utter peace and quiet - no traffic noise, no city sounds, no nearby neighbors. Utter privacy: between you and the nearest road is a eucalyptus forest. In addition to the loft bedroom with queen sized bed, there's a sofa bed in the living room that will sleep an additional person or two - up to 4 guests total. 1 full bathroom plus 1 half-bath. Fully equipped kitchen. Screened-in lanai. East Hawaii, the Hilo side, is the lush beautiful side of the Big Island. And the Creekside Cottage is perfectly located for the most convenient access to all the spectacular sights and adventures Hawaii is famous for. (The west or Kona side is barren desert, and a 2+ hour drive to any of the natural wonders.) All the waterfalls and river canyons the Big Island has to offer, are located along the Hamakua Coast, and the Creekside Cottage is in the midst of them - nestled in a beautiful river valley in the Hamakua Coast district. Stunning 400-ft Akaka Falls is located in the next river valley up the coast, 5 miles away. World-famous Waipio Falls, with a double 1,000-ft waterfall, is a little farther up the coast to the north. The most pristine snorkeling reefs and tide pools in the Pacific ocean are close by, on the easternmost point of the island. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park - with the active volcano, fascinating lava tubes, and hundreds of miles of hiking trails - is less than an hour to the south. (If you were to stay on the other side of the island, in touristy Kona, you'd have to drive more than 2 hours to get to the Volcanoes Nat'l Park.) Within 15 minutes of the Creekside Cottage are 3 beautiful botanical gardens and 2 thrilling zip lines. The owners have zip-lined in numerous parts of the world, including in Costa Rica where zip-lining was first invented, and we can testify that the zip line at Akaka Falls is one of the most thrilling in the world.
