Recent Hilo District reviews

  • This is THE PLACE to stay!!!

    "Why spend your Hawaii vacation in a cramped up hotel room and fighting the crowds, when you can take your whole family and spend your time at a private home with lots of room right on the ocean? This is the place to stay! We so much enjoyed our time and our stay here. The home has everything you need to feel at home. You can't beat having ocean front views from all of the bedrooms and letting the waves put you to sleep. And it is so nice to be able to swim in the pool or lounge in the hottub with the ocean just feet away. Even though it was the end of the whale season, we were able see one as he/she jumped out of the water. The location of the house allows you to be only 12 miles from Hilo, and not far drives north of Hilo to the waterfalls and scenic drives, and also a short drive to Volcanos National Park. While in the Puna district, you can drive the coastline for breathtaking views of the coast and beaches while you drive through the tropical forest. For something closer to the house, there are several bicycles that you can use and take a nice ride to the local shoreline parks and beaches. This house is really amazing and I promise you will love it too. Barbara and Jack will make sure you are right at home! Thank you Barbara and Jack for our wonderful stay. We will definitely be coming back here to stay!"

  • This is my idea of Paradise!

    "The road to the property is reminiscent of old Hawaii with canopies of trees and gently flowing streams that give way to an open clearing where this home is located. Only a few minutes from Hilo but you feel a million miles away from everything. The ocean view greeted us as we excitedly entered the house to the sound of Hawaiian music they had left on for us. The house had every comfort you could ask for and my kids particularly enjoyed the closet full of toys and foosball table on the back patio. At night, the sound of rain lightly tapping on the sky lights was relaxing and made for a good night's sleep. On our second morning, some cows were grazing just over the fence from the backyard and my wife and kids had a ball taking pictures with them. My only regret was that we didn't get more than two nights here as we had stayed at several places on the island. Next time I'm on the big island I will spend more days on the Hilo side enjoying the beauty and laid back pace, and this house will be at the top of my list for places to stay! Linda was a great host and called to make sure we had everything we needed. When we left, my wife had forgotten an article of clothing and she was kind enough to mail it out to us. That tells me Linda will go the extra mile to make sure your vacation is special! Thank you!"

  • Thank You Kepi!!!:)

    "My family and I stayed in the Honu 2 for two nights and could not have asked for a more comfortable suite or for more accommodating hosts. Jim and Kepi have created a lush tropical oasis with all the creature comforts of home. The style, art work and vibe of the place was truly treat and getting the opportunity to meet Jim and Kepi and talk story on the lanai in the morning while drinking coffee was one of the highlights of our trip. We also enjoyed the closeness of Hilo and the Puna district which had many great places to eat and some extremely wild and scenic coastline vistas. I should mention that the eastside has been inhabited by the coqui frog and when show up you may be surprise by how many and how loud. I personally am a light sleeper and had absolutely no issues with it as I was lulled to sleep by the sounds of the universe. Finally on the business side Kepi was extremely accommodating to our needs and quick and prompt with all correspondence. Thank you again Kepi we truly enjoyed meeting you and Jim and our stay at the Honu 2."

  • A slice of country

    "My husband and I spent 4 days here with our 2 teenage daughters while on springbreak. We had one of the studios with 3 beds and it worked out great... plenty of room. The experience couldn't be more different from the conventional hotel. Its a large property surrounded by field and farmland. Early mornings were spent drinking coffee on the porch listening to birds while overlooking the ocean. We made hot breakfast everymorning and ate on the porch before heading out for the day. The kitchenette is adequate for basic food prep. Our hosts, Vicki and Ben are a very warm and personable couple who shared knowledge, stories and fruit. There was a goodie basket in our room on arrival and fresh flowers in a vase on the kitchen table. The room and property is very clean and well kept and we were able to take walks along the private road...Great view of Muana Kea covered in snow! The house is well located on the east side of the island to use for a jumping off point to visit Hilo and below (Volcano NP, etc) and also Honokaa & Waipio Valley. We stayed at three locations during our visit to the big island and this was our favorite by far. Definitely we will return! Thank you Vicki and Ben :-)"
