  • Beautiful private home

    "Everything was exactly as pictured and expected, including the charming and authentic ofuro bath. The kitchen is nicely appointed. There are few "left-over" spices and such from previous guests, which is slightly unusual, so be sure to stock up on your fave items on the way in. I suggest going to the mega KTA store, which is pretty much across from the airport. The house is located about 15 minutes from Hilo town, in a nice residential neighborhood standing on a hill, far enough from neighbors to feel secluded and with an exceptional view. We didn't lack for anything, and the sounds of the many birds, the evening's coqui symphony, and the many geckos kept us thoroughly entertained. Cable channels are sparse, but there is a stack of movies and DVD player. Upstairs bedrooms (Queen beds) are comfy and airy with ceiling fans to cut the heat, the downstairs bedroom has two twins for the kids. Not sure what I'd do if I had small children, as sleeping them downstairs wouldn't be prudent, but it's a nice private hideaway for older kids. Furnishings were comfortable and plentiful. We do wish there had been an actual sofa to lounge on, which would have made visiting with guests more comfortable, but overall we were just fine. The pool is simply wonderful! Not overly chlorinated, the water is the perfect temperature to swim day or night (though it can feel a tad chilly in the evening and when it rains). Just big enough to swim "sprints", I was able to do my usual lap swimming, so so so happy! Overall this home is such a relaxing, beautiful, comfortable place to be we actually spent a lot of time hanging out instead of doing the mad dashes to everywhere else. Things not to miss: Poi balls on Saturdays on the road in from Hilo. 4-mile beach and Richardson's beach on Kamehameha St. where I had an intimate meeting with an enormous honu (sea turtle). The Saturday and Wednesday mega Farmer's Market in Hilo. Buy some of Wes's Menehune Jams -- they are amazing!!! The drive through Puna -- go down to the volcanic tide pools (bring your water slippahs or you will cut your feet up and don't forget snorkel gear!) Of the many visits to the islands, this may be the best. I haven't even left the island yet, and I'm already planning my next trip -- and I will be staying here!"

  • Good price for Hilo

    "Good location near Hilo downtown. Hilo side of the island can be a bit rainy but worth a try. The apartment is very comfortable and well maintained. Very nice organic supermarket in Hilo downtown (5min of drive), cheaper than safeway which is more far."

  • Hurrican Proof

    "this is the second time we are staying at Lopakas Lodge, and it gets better every time. The stay was wonderful, and Bev, the host is even better. She has maintained the lodge so that it feels like a new place every time have rented. This recent stay had us worried about the structural integrity of the lodge during Hurricane Iselle. The lodge withstood the storm, and most importantly our 5 y.o. son slept right through the storm. The best part is Bev treated us like family and offered her house and provide us guidance on what steps we should take in case of a situation caused by the storm. e are very thankful that we were at the lodge during this event. We will definitely be back. Mahalo Bev!"

  • Delight in a tropical Paradise, close to town and out in nature

    "Oh my, not sure there are enough words to express our gratitude and delight for our stay in the magical River House, and the gracious generosity of the owners, Mozela and Glenn, in accommodating special needs we had during our visit. The home was built when there was so much creative attention given to details, that we felt like we were staying in an art piece, not just a well built home. In addition there is attention given to details by the owners that added to our ease and enjoyment, while helping us feel at home away from home. It is quiet and feels private and spacious. Having a river by your home is almost unheard of on the Big Island. This magical river rises up out of the lava, flows for a little over a half of a mile, and disappears back into the lava. Watching the sun dancing on the water and listening to its song was both refreshing and mesmerizing--we enjoyed beginning our day down by the river!. This is a great place for people who desire to be close to town and in a natural setting!"
