Ocean front retreat in Hawaiian Paradise Park Keaau, Hawaii
Additional Location Information
The property is located in Hawaiian Paradise Park, approximately 25-30 minutes southeast of the Hilo Airport. Paradise Park is the second largest subdivision in the United States with over 8,800 lots, an estimated 95% of which are one acre in size.
This results in a very low density, very green area, that is rural and largely undeveloped. Commercial activity within the park is very limited, and usually in the form of small farms.
Less than half the lots are developed, and most of those are used as single family home sites.

My fiance and I stayed in a lower one-bedroom unit at this property. The views of the Hilo coast were amazing. Every morning we woke up and took relaxing walks along the cliff-side coast just steps away from our room. A tide-pool is just a short walk away.
The amenities are all first rate - the decor is luxurious and new, the pool and spa are relaxing, and the japanese landscaping are gorgeous. The owners were very helpful about giving suggestions about how to maximize our stay. We visited the Volcano national park, hot springs and Hilo Botanical Gardens based on their suggestions.
All together, our stay at this location helped make our trip to the big island one we'll never forget. I would highly recommend it.

I stayed for 6 nights with my friend.We had luxury time there.Amazing beautiful pool and garden.Many kinds of plant and tree are there.The sea is front of our room.They made us to be happy and to feel in heaven.In the pool I could release my mind and body.
And we enjoyed the farmer's market in Keaau on Sunday.
Owner told us how to enjoy there.It takes 20-25 minuts from Hilo.It's easy to drive.
I had many excellent experience there.
Next time I'd like to watch whales from there!
So I recommend this vacation rental to all my friends!!

The Big Island is one of the most remarkable places on earth. Snow capped mountains, spectacular fields of lava, rain forests dripping with orchids, waterfalls hundreds of feet high, the world's most active volcano...and every sort of adventure a traveler could ask for.
There are choices of every sort of accommodation available on the Big Island, but we prefer the luxury and quiet of a home like the Besser's.
Sited on a low lava cliff (about 10' above the water)fronting the ocean.The owners have lavished a tremendous amount of work on the landscaping with waterfalls, ponds, walking paths a zen garden, an infinity pool and hot tub. Each day the ponds are visited by a rare (and protected) pair of Nene Geese, the state bird of Hawaii.
If relaxation is what you look for in a vacation destination - a place to rejuvenate, renew relationships, and escape the pressures of day-to-day life - it's perfect. If you're looking for the real Hawaii this is it.
The volcano is a short drive away, and is a must for every first time visitor to the island. The local Farmer's Market is a great place to pick of the freshest produce and vast selection of arts and crafts.
We love the Big Island, and truly envy the life-style that the owners have achieved...you'll leave with two new friends
