My place is close to Honoli'i, Onomea bay, Akaka and Rainbow falls, and other parks; 10 minute drive downtown for restaurants/dining, Museums/Cultural, and city center. You’ll love it for the spectacular views, the ambiance, the neighborhood, and the outdoor space. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. Whether you're in town for sight-seeing or business, our location is central to all that the Windward side of the Big Island has to offer.

The space

The Lanai overlooking the ocean is almost too much to take in. The Master Bath is really unique, spacious, and open with tilework for the sunken bath.

Guest access

We have a fully functional kitchen(less a microwave), and Laundry as well as 2 great rooms to lounge in after a swim in the pool.

We eat no meat so don't expect your normal assortment of sausage or bacon. Fresh fruit, coffee, Breads, eggs and other dairy are still enjoyed here, special accommodations are easily considered

Interaction with guests

The room is secluded in the back corner of the house, so privacy the whole time you're here is an option. I will be up at 5:30 and at school from 8am-5pm Mon-Fri; outside of those hours I will be available for food requests, as well as info, advice, or just to share in great conversation with exciting folks.

Other things to note

There is no Television on premises... If you'd like to watch televised programs hopefully its accessible via internet and your laptop; make sure to bring your technology!

Jake was an awesome host - very friendly, helpful & knowledgeable about the area. The ocean view from the room is breathtaking! Great location only minutes from Hilo town, close to Botanical Garden & Akaka Falls. Loved my stay in Hilo!

The view is amazing from Jake’s place. Very quiet for a bunch of college students. Jake was very helpful and friendly and made sure my stay was as comfortable as possible.

My girlfriend and I had a pleasant stay. We booked a week but then ended up extending an extra 3 days because we couldn't see ourselves not having the panoramic ocean view with the ocean breeze coming in the room. Morning sunrises were just absolutely gorgeous. Nights with the full moon shining on the ocean, the sound of rain gently crashing in the background was a dream. The room and bathroom was spacious. Can't complain. Other than that, Jake and Andrea, and the others that lived in the house were very friendly and trusting. Also,the neighborhood is safe which made our stay even better. Would we come back? Definitely!

Jake's place was in the perfect location for Hilo and the nearby waterfalls. Jake and Andrea were very friendly hosts and the view was great. We loved Samson!

I've been traveling a long time, often end up in places that others are called to. I am a conservation biology student at the University of Hawai'i at Hilo. That being said, I try to live my lifestyle in a way that preserves our beautiful beaches here in Hawai'i as well as all the biomes of the world. Outside of school, you can find me on tops of mountains with my crampons or snowboard, in my harness hanging from a rock wall, or in the ocean scuba diving or snorkeling.
