Both the upper level and the lower level have large patio areas that look out over beautiful ponds and tropical foliage.
Wailoa Park is right next door. Run through the park and you end up at Hilo Bayfront, home to the Hilo small boat harbor, Suisan fish market (excellent al fresco dining at the cafe here), and Liliuokalani Park, a breathtakingly beautiful park with an Asian-inspired landscape.
Originally built as a Sheraton Hotel, the Waiakea Villas are now condominiums. Only two suites were built in the complex, with this Lehua Suite being the largest.
The full kitchen is complete with a range, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, sink, breakfast nook and more.
The first floor of the suite has the living room, dining area, lounge area, kitchen and bath. The sofa in the lounge area opens up to a full-sized sleeper. In the morning, step outside of the lounge onto the spacious tiled lanai.
This condo is being sold in turn-key condition. It comes completely furnished and is ready for vacation rental use. Hotel Resort zoning allows for both long term and short term vacation rentals.
In the morning, have a cup of Kona coffee, read the morning edition of the Hawaii Tribune Herald, and watch the koi swim by, accompanied by the chatter of the friendly ducks, who consider the grounds of Waiakea Villas their home.
