The SpaceEnjoy the ideal location on the beautiful Hamakua Coast, the green side of
the Big Island of Hawaii, on our own piece of Paradise. With the best views
of the ocean & Mauna Kea mountain from your own lanai above the rushing
waters of the Makea Stream. We call it a river, as it is 30-45 feet wide,
in the wading and swimming holes, below the waterfalls (of course). You
could spend your whole vacation here, swimming, hiking, and resting or
On six acres of farm land, we have a little working petting farm; with 2
horses, Thunder and Electra, the miniature horse. 7 goats, milking 2 of them
now, so you are welcome to try some goat milk. We hope to try our hand at
making cheese soon. Of course, we have chickens and their eggs to gather.
We also have two old dogs, Rex and Molly, who will bark at you, then
remember you must be old friends. And, of course, two granddaughters who
spend weekends with grandma and grandpa; they should be listed with farm
animals, I recon.
Feel free to collect fruit, in season from our orchard of lychee, mango,
avocado, star fruit, bananas and many others including the best melt in your
mouth white pineapple ever to be imagined! We have so many, there is are
usually a few ripe at all times.
We are located 11 miles north of Hilo, at the end of the "Scenic Route"
where the botanical gardens, and breathtaking Onemea Bay are; and north of
Honoli'i beach and surf spot, where Puff the Magic Dragon hangs out.
We are asking $100 a nite, with discounts for longer stays.
You can (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) us at Flower Hill Hawaii Guest AccessYour guest private, separate guest suite, is off the large lanai where
tradewinds come in off the ocean provide a comfortable breeze. The bedroom
has a brass queen size bed, ample storage and closet. Your bathroom has
shower (with stained glass doors) and washer and dryer. The main room has a
futon, satellite TV, and a kitchenette, with new refrigerator, coffee pot,
microwave and convection toaster/oven. There is also a BBQ on the lanai,
for your use. I have dishes, coffee, some spices and other things to get you started.
Interaction with GuestsWe enjoy guests, and will show you around, introduce you to animals, or fruits, if you are interested. We have a nice topographical map on the big shared lanai where we can point out all the beautiful and intriguing sights, in our area and around the island. The Neighborhood Around
us are acres of corn and purple potato fields. With nice side roads for
peaceful and scenic walks, you can check out the cliffs and bays of the
ocean, right in front of us; as ocean front is public land. Our own road is
the back road to the scenic and quaint town of Honomu, with artsty gift
stores, ice cream and bakery shops. You will want to drive around to go
thru Honomu, and up to Akaka Falls, a brisk hike up and down stairs to a
stunning 1000' waterfall. Don't forget the Pit Stop Fruit Stand, just to
watch petite Milyn wield a machete o a defenseless coconut, drink the juice
from straws, and then watch her chop up the meat to take with. I could go
on up the coast, and tell you to check out Kolekole, Haukalau, and all the
othe "beach" parks. I say "beach" because they are rocky and rugged and
birthed from old sugar mill plantation transportation docks. Which makes
them an exploration, not just a destination. But, we will save it for our
visit, and show you all the options on our topo map. Other Things to NoteWe are situated between 3 awesome zip line adventures, 2 botanical gardens, multiple waterfall and "beach" parks. The Hamakua Coast has the most beautiful ocean views, and lush landscape; there is always something new to discover.
