Most travelers prefer renting a car, our Island is large, linear, and depending on the weather, this allows the option to easily change direction. Airport rentals are easiest, may I suggest a GPS especially if arriving towards evening, not so easy to see driveway the first time. Best rental car rates, usually a few weeks prior to arrival. If you need, the Hele On Bus stops on the road near the house, rate $2.00, $1.00 for senior. Please check: (http://www.heleonbus.org/schedules-and-maps) for schedule. The Hilo/South Kohala map shows routes that lead to hotels & beaches. The Waimea Shuttle is our local area.
Cleaning fee will vary, depending on length of stay.
* Approximate Monthly rates, actual rate will depend on the days of the month you stay
