    Spacious house surrounded by anthuriums, lush " old growth" Ohia trees and other exotic ferns, palms and rare plants. 15 minutes from Rainbow Falls and the hospital. 20 minutes to downtown. 30 minutes to the airport and beaches. 40 minutes to the Volcano. Lots of private parking. Quiet, secure with locked outside gate, fresh forest air, pure Hawaiian (County) water. Be serenaded by the calls of the Coqui frogs at night and chirping of birds in the morning. Fast internet. Great for families, remote work groups and retreats.

    Steve’s comments:

    When we retired we could have moved anywhere in Hawaii. People ask why we chose to live in Hilo and not sunny Kona. For many reasons. The air in Hilo is fresh and humid. Our skin stays moist and rash free. We look and feel younger. The water is pure and tasty, filtered by the lava and delivered by the County. The temperatures are moderate all year round, averaging 75 degrees F. Yes, there is more rain in Hilo, but that creates the lush tropical forest with its abundance of rich oxygen. The anthuriums surrounding the house once planted require no care. The combination of rain, sun and shade make these and many other plants maintenance free. We feel close to nature.

    We moved to Hilo for its ideal environment, but we discovered much more. King Kamehameha, who conquered and united the Hawaiian Islands, could have chosen any island on which to live, but preferred the Big Island as his home and headquarters. The Big Island is dotted with cultural sites of temples, villages, and history of those early days. The Big Island is where Captain Cook, the missionaries and sugar plantation immigrants first landed. That history is embedded in the culture of the Big Island.

    Then there is the constantly fuming Kilauea volcano in Volcano National Park with it’s many wonderful trails. Mauna Kea is considered the highest mountain in the world, if measured from its base in the deep ocean. It is sometimes covered in snow in winter. Because its clear skies, the mountain is home to some of the greatest telescopes in the world.

    Hilo has a small town flavor with its laid back life style and friendly people. Life goes on at a slow pace and makes for a relaxed and stress free experience. After centuries of mixing, there is no dominate race, but a mixture of many racial backgrounds; Hawaiian, Japanese, Chinese,Filipino, Korean, Portuguese, and many more. Their common language is also a ...

    Beautiful property and home in rural Hilo area. It’s a bit out of the way, but the drive is beautiful and the kids enjoyed themselves.

    The Anthurium House was well furnished. The dishes, cups, glasses, dinnerware, and cookware were sufficient. The bedrooms, towels, and shampoo and body wash were sufficient. Our visit was relaxing and the pace was slow, easy and chill. Hilo Town was less than a 30-minute drive away. The property has many ferns and anthuriums. We enjoyed our stay at the Anthurium House.

    We had a great 8 night stay. The property was very clean and exactly as shown in the listing. We had two couples and three kids and still had a bed to spare. The outdoor shower was everyone's favorite! The owners were very responsive to any questions that we had and the property was well stocked with snorkel gear so you don't have to rent any if you don't want to. The frogs were loud, but by the second night we were used to them and they sang us to sleep. (If you need absolute quiet to sleep, Hilo is probably not the place for you to visit!) The property is a little out of town, which is exactly what we wanted. I definitely recommend staying here if you are traveling to the Hilo side of the Big Island!

    Noko & Steve were great hosts and the home was just as pictured. Very clean and easy to get to, located just up the mountain from Hilo and well equipped with essentials. They were very accommodating as we had bad weather roll through during our stay and made sure we had everything we needed. Great communication and great hosts.

    We loved the location of the property. Very quiet street and private. We saw wild chickens and pigs running around on the main road and the landscape of the property was amazing! It really was perfect for us to get to the National Park, Pahoa, or Hilo. House was large enough for our party of 7 + baby. Sadly (our group should have been 9 + baby) we had two members of our party get sick and couldn’t make it on the trip so they had to cancel. The house is listed as being able to accommodate 10 but what they don’t tell you is there is an additional person charge for anyone in your group over 6 people. So we had over $400 in additional charges and we couldn’t get a refund for the extra two people that had to cancel. Access to the house was convenient with a code but the code didn’t work when we arrived but the host got back to us within 30 minutes and provided a new code. The outdoor space is wonderful and we all really enjoyed the outdoor shower! Mahalo for this location!
