About Bill and Marie Atwell

We fell in love with the Big Island when our daughter went to school at the University of Hawaii in Hilo. The diverse terrain reminded us of many of the places that we've lived in the past. We live in Idaho and driving through lava fields reminds us of Craters of the Moon in Idaho. The Waimea area could be the rolling plains of central and northern California or the oak trees of Michigan.

Bill and Marie Atwell purchased this house in 2016

Why Bill and Marie Atwell chose Keaau

We stayed in this area for a week in 2014 and decided this was the perfect spot. It didn't get its nickname, Blue Hole, by accident. It can be a hard rain in Hilo or just 4 miles up the road, and it is sunny at our house by the ocean.

This place does not just have the view of the ocean, it has the "feel" of the ocean. You can sit down by the ocean and feel the spray from the waves, and you're close enough to the water that you can see the turtles playing and the whales breaching in the winter.

Don't miss the star gazing on those clear nights. The Milky Way is spectacular! It is second only to the Grand Canyon.

Perfect Hawaiian house in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 9 days at the Blue Hole. It was an amazing stay! We were a young couple with 2 kids (8 months and 2 1/2 years old) and Grand-ma. Lots of room for everyone! Long strolls with ocean views, magnificent vegetation... Beds are kind of firm and were uncomfortable for us, but apart from that, all furniture is new and very nice! Full kitchen, nice family room, 3 fully functional bathrooms, washer-drier.... No AC but many fans and at night it got COLD so we were very comfortable.

Most negative was the distance from everything. 10-15 minutes from Pahoa, but everything else is at least 20-30 minutes drive. We didn't think about it and regretted it with the kids, but a group with older ones or adults would be okay. Thanks again!

Tolles großes und modernes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Da Haus besitzt 3 (!) tolle Bäder (eins mit Whirlwanne, eins mit angegliedertem blicksicherem Aussenbereich) und 2 Schlafzimmer, sowie einen riesigen Wohnraum mit offener Küche. Die Küchenausstattung ist hervorragend. Die Terrasse ist schön groß. Der Garten ist (noch?) nicht bepflanzt und mit rotem Kiesel ausgestreut.

Der sehr felsige Strand ist in wenigen Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen, aber nicht zum Baden geeignet. Dafür kann man wunderbar die Schildkröten in der Brandung beobachten.

Die Sehenswürdigkeiten auf dieser Inselseite, z. B. Der Volcanos National Park sind alle sehr gut zu erreichen. Das Haus ist in Top - Zustand und sehr neu. Sehr sauber und gepflegt. Wir würden es jederzeit wieder mieten.

Our first trip to Hawaii was amazing. We decided to rent a house instead of a hotel, which was the right choice because we are a family of 8, plus my mother also came along. The house was beautiful. It was modern and comfortable. The kitchen was big and well stocked with everything we needed. There were towels and even a cooler for the beach. The view is amazing. Waking up to the sunrise over the water every morning was so relaxing. The house is close to shops and restaurants so it was very convenient for us. The house even has Netflix for guests which was nice for late nights. Overall, our stay was comfortable and a good experience.

I would recommend adding a walk way for people with wheelchairs, since my mother uses her wheelchair and walker to move around and there was only stairs and that made it difficult for my mother. Otherwise the house was well stocked with everything we needed and great for families with teenagers and young children.

Just bring your toothbrush!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood and was and not far from where we wanted to go. Our flight was delayed and the property manager was waiting for us when we arrived at 10PM. She was very helpful with our questions about the area. In the home was a booklet prepared by the owners with Google maps and directions to local attractions which was also very helpful. Our only regret was that we were only staying for four days.

Felt like we were at home while on holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot say thank you enough to Bill and Marie for your wonderful home which was far beyond what we expected. The modern conveniences in this stay including the large kitchen for entertaining and the large bedrooms with ample bathrooms, shower and spa made it so easy for our two young families to have an enjoyable time whenever we came back from our daily activities for the week. Would highly recommend this stay, as also the neighbours Liisa and Paul (who look after the place while the owners are away) were so accommodating and helpful with the local sites to see. Would definitely come back here on our next visit to Big Island, Aloha!

Lava viewing is a must-do activity for your vacation. Less than 25 miles from our house Kilauea volcano is actively erupting. Hawaii wouldn’t exist if it were not for the continuous volcanic activity that created all the islands in the state. Seeing this happening in “real-time” is guaranteed to be an awe-inspiring experience.
