Lovely location. Worked out great for the two of us
"Thanks Richard for the great stay. The house has complete kitchen and laundry so it fit us for our two week stay. We love this location and enjoyed watching the surf from the yard. We really like how nice and quiet it was yet so close to the water. Our highlights were a helicopter tour, horse back ride at Waipio Valley and snorkling in the ocean. We kept busy."

"My husband and I spent half of our vacation on the Big Island in Hilo at this lovely residence, and the other half in Kona. Our time in Hilo was far superior to our time in the other rental in Kona. Hilo lived up to its rainy reputation (and that's coming from Seattleites), but consequently, the environment is lovely, green, and lush. Hilo is small but charming and we liked that it wasn't touristy as Kona. And, when staying in Hilo, we could not have imagined a better place than Lopaka's Family Lodge. It is in a quiet neighborhood that is conveniently located close to our favorite activities on the island: the Hawaii Tropical Garden, the Volcano National Park, and Mauna Kea. The Lodge itself was spacious, modern, and packed with thoughtful amenities like road maps, brochures, umbrellas, toothbrushes... even things like freezer mugs to keep your drinks cold! The appliances were all modern and worked well. The lanai looks over a cute garden (with an avocado tree!) and ocean views beyond. Finally, Bev is a sweetheart who welcomed us like we were close friends or family. She is even kind enough to mail me my shoes which I was embarrassed to have accidentally left behind. Thank you so much. Our only regrets are that the avocados weren't in season and that we didn't stay longer! :) We will definitely be back."

"Great view. Whale watching from the balcony with 5min drive to downtown Hilo. Nothing like sleeping to the sound of ocean waves and waking to watch the sunrise over the ocean from your lanai. We bought fresh Mahi Mahi from the fish market and grilled it on the grill and ate it with fresh fruit and vegetables from the farmers market. All the tastes, sites and sounds that you want from a Hawaii experience"

"We enjoyed our stay. An expanse of ocean can be seen from the bedrooms, dining room and the screened porch. The yard is gated, large and private. The pool is a big plus. The home is located in a semi-rural area a short drive from Hilo and near a botanical garden. The house and grounds were well maintained. Checking in and out were easy. We will return."
