This pop-art fun and colorfully designed house nestled in a Hilo neighborhood has stunning ocean and Hilo Bay views. The private hot tub on the back patio has sweeping ocean views and the upper level lanai is perfect for whale watching in season! Stay here as a jumping off point for attractions in Hilo (open-air markets, waterfalls, museums, swimming with turtles) and the Hamakua Coast (surf Honoli'i, zipline Umauma, and visit the Botanical Gardens of Onomea). Or just enjoy the languor of the tropics at your home away from home: Seahorse House...
Seahorse House is comfortable and hosts 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in over 2,000 square feet on two levels. The property is gated and surrounded by lovely native gardens. Downstairs is a welcoming entryway open to the back patio where you'll be stopped in your tracks by the 180 degree ocean view and a private hot tub! The kitchen and living room both have these 'wow' views too! The kitchen is fully functional with gas range, microwave, dishwasher and kitchenware and includes eat-in dining table with comfortable seating for four. The living room has a flat screen TV with cable and internet capability, even Apple TV! There is a colorful half bathroom off of the kitchen with fun artwork you'll enjoy.
Up the mid-century-modern open stairs is another show stopping ocean view! The upper lanai is the perfect spot for sipping coffee or cocktails and watching whales in the winter season. It is screened for your comfort and indoor-outdoor living. There are two bedrooms upstairs, each with an en-suite bathroom. The master suite has a large picture window facing the ocean, a king sized bed and walk-in tiled shower in the bathroom. The guest bedroom peacefully faces the gardens and opens into the second full bathroom with a shower/tub combo. There is a third room upstairs with a small desk looking over the ocean and an open floor for yoga or Pilates workout. There is also a laundry room conveniently located on this floor with washer and dryer available to you.
A/C Notes: No A/C. Every bedroom has a fan and almost constant ocean breezes.
