The space
This is my home. I rent it when I am travelling. It is open and bright and airy and totally screened in with two lanais, one 29x13 ft. facing the jungle, and the other smaller facing the sea. Compact kitchen with gas stove, also convection countertop oven, Vitamix blender, dishwasher and electric kettle, and large refrigerator with freezer. Living room has comfortable recliner chair and couch and 42 inch TV. Several hardwood carved chest of drawers and two night stands with drawers add beauty and give space for your clothes in the bedroom and an armoire for hanging clothes. There are a large tiled shower in the bathroom and an outdoor shower off of driveway to get the sand off from beaching it. There is a vanity counter, toilet and large shower in the bath room along with the fridge. The one sink is in the kitchen. See photos.

Where you’ll be

Hilo, Hawaii, United States

Ther are 6 houses in the neighborhood which borders the Onekahakaha Beach Park. Thus we are surrounded by open space and ocean. Gate to the beach opens at 7 AM and closes at 9 PM with locked gates so all is quiet in the Park. It is very safe swimming there. No alcohol, drugs or smoking in the Park. This is a quiet pleasant neighborhood with helpful, kind people. There are two cats in the apartment below. There are no dogs or roosters nearby so except for the coqui frogs it is super quiet.

I am a semi retired veterinarian and like to travel and volunteer overseas. I spend three months or so at a favorite place in Mexico, Yelapa where I have been going for 39 years and did "jungle veterinarian medicine" there for many of those years being paid with eggs or meat or fruit or rides on their horse or mule for spaying and neutering their dogs and cats, castrating a horse or pig, or sewing up a fighting cock (which I did mumbling and complaining that they should not fight their birds), and numerous other procedures. I have volunteered in Africa many times. See my book African Sojourns a digital book available on (Website hidden by Airbnb) for $1.99. This Sept/Oct 2019 I am volunteering at a small animal hospital in the Grenadine Islands, Carriacou. I love Hilo and love that I can go out my door and go swimming in the ocean. There is a lot to do here from going to cultural events to hiking, to viewing events at the Volcano National Park etc. I have a vegetable garden and also grow coconuts, avacados, Mac Nuts and passion fruit on my small lot. I love my home and hope that you will too. I have my treasures from my travels here. I am renting it out so I can volunteer my veterinary skills more. You know that one has to pay to volunteer these days and with air fare etc. things add up. So thank you for helping. I hope you love Hilo and my home as do I. My favorite motto is "Go for it". I do, and it looks like you do too. Have a great stay.
