About the property

Aloha and welcome to the Eco House at Pepeekeo. The home is a brand new 2 bedroom, 2 bath home that offers ocean views, serene surrounding and privacy that you won’t find in the more touristy resorts on the Big Island. Once you set foot on this beautiful 8 acre property, you will see why we choose this location for our home. From the lanai you can see the ocean and watch the occasional cruise ships and barges heading in and out of the harbor in Hilo. A meandering stream runs along the property that leads to an impressive waterfall. Fruit trees have been planted by the hundreds on the land. And lush, colorful gardens are found surrounding the house.

Get up early in the morning and see the sun rise from the ocean and watch the red clouds in the sky. Get outside at night to watch the moon rise from the ocean or stay up to enjoy the beautiful stars and milky way in the middle of night.

The well appointed home features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen and an open living room / dining room area. One bedroom offers a queen bed and the other has two twins. There is also a futon bed/couch in the living area that folds down for sleeping. The kitchen has a large island and new, stainless steel appliances and quartz counter tops. The living room has a large screen smart Tv that you can watch DVDs and cable Tv on. One bedroom also offers a large smart TV.

The home is eco-friendly and completely off-grid. Electrical power comes from solar panels with a back-up propane generator. Hot water for bathing also is generated from solar panels. Water comes from a filtered tank system that catches rain water that falls on the roof.

Our home is located at the end of the historic Hamakura scenic route. Nearby you'll find the Hawaii Botanic Garden, a real wonder of nature. Also close by is Akaka Falls, where you can visit its 442' tall waterfall. Waipio Valley to the north and Volcano National Park to the south are also must sees as well.

Our goal is to offer your family a clean, comfortable place to stay at a reasonable price during your adventure on our amazing Big Island of Hawaii.

Please write for a quote for stays of a month or longer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our experience there was amazing!! The cottage itself is beautiful and open with tall ceilings and gorgeous views. Randall was very personable, easy to contact, sent clear directions and greeted us upon arrival. The house is immaculate and had everything we needed. The kitchen was fully equipped and we really enjoyed making our breakfasts there and eating on the lanai enjoying the view. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in! Hot water was excellent and the ceiling fans kept the house at a pleasant temperature. The location was perfect for visiting Akaka Falls and we even did a day trip to Waipio Valley with enough time to have dinner in Hilo. We loved our stay, it was a true treat to have stayed there! Looking forward to coming back soon! ”

Peaceful, far from the maddening crowds. Brings about daydreams.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place. We spent 4 nights here. It is out in the country, but, you can get into downtown Hilo within 10 mins or less. We were looking for something serene, peaceful, not inside Hilo downtown. We also wanted to visit all of the Hilo side Big Island places. This place was centrally located. We also did not want to waste time moving about to be close to the attractions. It was an easy drive to Volcano NP, where we stayed late to view the lava glow. The drive back was smooth.

All kinds of birds greeted us in the morning, and we had the most glorious sunrises.

It was well stocked- we found most everything we needed. Randall was very attentive. We highly recommend this place.

Beautiful, peaceful, and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, spacious, and bright. Everything's brand new inside and out. Well stocked kitchen, including water bottle provided for hikes around beautiful hilo. Most enjoyed waking up every morning having a cup of coffee on the large lanai with ocean views. Also did some grilling in the evenings and ate dinner out on the lanai. Beautiful flowers and plants around property. Private. Great location. Missing this beautiful place already. Do try the delicious poke in downtown Hilo. The large farmers market is a must.

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a month and enjoyed the home thoroughly. The off grid living did not effect our stay, just had to be conscious to not waste electricity. Very private surroundings but only 10 min drive to Hilo. Would recommend to friends and family.

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

The home is practically brand new, very nicely appointed and well stocked. The views are terrific, it's quiet and the lanai is very comfortable. Our first time staying in Hilo and loved it. Lots of things to do close by and a beautiful area. The manager, Randall is very attentive and gave us plenty of great ideas to keep us busy. My wife and I rent homes for all our travels and would definitely recommend you stay here!

Wonderful home & location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home, great location and Randall is very helpful. There were a couple of minor new home issues that were taken care of immediately while we were sightseeing. Be sure and read Randall's directions carefully, they are accurate and GPS didn't work for us. Coming from Hilo the post office on the left is the signal to turn right off highway 19. Don't be surprised when you turn into the drive and you go down a steep hill. The home is off the grid with a generator back/up. Owners should be complimented for the design of the home. Home is well stocked. While this stretched our budget a bit, the home and setting were well worth it.
