  • Wonderful Stay In Hilo Home

    "This was a wonderful find close enough to Hilo for us to enjoy Merrie Monarch Festival week yet in the country that was lush with pastoral views. The home was spotless, very open and large size to accommodate my husband and I and our adult daughter and adult niece. The property is over an acre large and there is an ocean view from the large windows. It was wonderful to just sit and enjoy the sounds of nature, hear the birds, watch the goats and cows next door, and breathe in the fresh air after the frequent rains in Hilo. While there we enjoyed outings to the Volcano Winery, Volcano National Park, Ken's Diner (near the airport), Don's (local food), Zippy's, and Starbucks. KTA grocery store was close by so we ate several meals in given the large and well stocked kitchen and stove. Cynthia, the landlady, was very nice and presented us with some fresh, local apple bananas one day for our breakfast; she was accessible throughout our stay. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay and would definitely stay here again should our vacation plans include Hilo."

  • Close to Everything

    "We arrived on the Big Island right after Hurricane Iselle had made land fall over Kapoho, where we had planned to stay for the week and we were unable to use the rental we had booked. So on to plan B and the house on Hilo Bay. The owner was very accommodating and gracious allowing us to book last minute. It was pretty muggy because of the remnants of the hurricane, but every room had fans to keep the house cool. Nights were quite comfortable. I will say that the house was very well appointed, everything you could ever need - including coffee grinder, pots/pans, etc. Plenty of silverware, mugs, glasses, and dishes. Very impressed! I've stayed at several private rentals and can say that this was by far the best equipped. It was also very clean and the owners gave explicit instructions about how to take care of the place, even the ants. We really appreciated having the instructions because it just helped with taking care of things and respecting the owners' property. The beds were also made with good quality linens when we arrived and there were plenty of towels. The location on the water was really nice as was having the deck with great views of the bay. However, it was also near the port and there was some heavy equipment and industrial activities nearby. Quite a bit of activity during the day but very very quiet in the evening, so I would say it's really not much of an impact. The best part was that it was pretty close to everything and a perfect home base for staying on the Big Island. We were minutes from many restaurants and stores. Near Rainbow Falls, Richardsons Beach. I would definitely stay there again - the owners were very easy to work with and we very much enjoyed our stay."

  • Outstanding

    "We had a wonderful time. Terry is very responsive and has thought of the details, so the condo is very well equipped for cooking. There are masks, flippers, really great binoculars, guidebooks, beach towels and so on. We stayed a week and are counting on returning soon. The only shortcoming is out of the owner's hands: across the street are two dogs who bark for much of the day. They are quiet at night but start up early in the morning. Not too much of a problem if you are in the bedroom facing the ocean, but a drag if you are in the bedroom facing the street and the house across the way. But if you get out and explore the Big Island you won't have to hear them much."

  • Comfy

    "We enjoyed this nicely appointed condo. Very comfortable. The setting in Carl Smith beach park is really nice. It doesn't have a view of the ocean, but there is a nice view of the forest canopy. And this is a small point, but for some it will be important: you can change the input on the TV so we were able to watch Netflix movies using our Chromecast fob and the apartment wifi, which we really enjoyed."
