About the neighbourhood
Only 10 miles or 15 minutes from downtown Hilo, nestled in the lush Hamakua hillside overlooking the ocean. Twenty minutes from Hilo international airport.<BR>The Hilo side of Hawaii is the lush and beautiful side, where all the streams and waterfalls and scenic canyons are. We have 2 streams and a small waterfall on the Kapehu estate. Five miles away is the spectacular Akaka Falls State Park. There are 2 gorgeous botanical gardens within a few minutes of the Kapehu estate and several zip lines. There are 8 black sand beaches within a few minutes drive (less crowded than the Kona beaches), where giant friendly sea turtles will come and swim with you. One of the best snorkeling reefs in the Pacific Ocean is just south-east of Hilo on the eastern point of the island.<BR> Volcanoe... more
