We have views of the Ocean & Mauna Kea mountain, but the best views are from your own balcony above the rushing waters of the Makea Stream. We call it a river, as it is 30-50 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 adventuring.
On six acres of farm land, we have a little working/petting farm; with 2 horses, Thunder and Electra, the miniature horse. 8 goats, and a variety of chickens.
We also have two dogs, old Molly, who will bark at you, then remember you must be old friends; and young Buddy, a Belgian Shepard who will sniff and love you too much.

How to get there
We are located 11 miles north of Hilo, off Hiway 19
You can search Google Maps for, Flower Hill Hawaii.
Directions are, North on Hiway 19, past small town of Pepeekeo, if you pass mile marker 11, you just went too far.
Turn right on Sugar Mill Road, toward the ocean, the road dips down then up, bear to left and down toward the ocean.
Turn left on Old Railroad way, where the old yellow sugar mill building is.
Turn right on Overpass, and we are right here.
Just pull straight in, by the ramp, and roll right in.
Don't think you can get on Overpass from 19, you cant get here from there, it is just an old bridge that has seen its better days.
If coming from the north from Kona, turn left after MM 11 and follow above directions .
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive.
