  • 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."

  • Lovely home in tropical setting!

    "We had a short three day stay at this lovely home, and could not be happier with our choice. The home is spacious, well furnished, surrounded by lush vegetation, with an ocean view, and only a short drive from Hilo. Everything one could wish for was provided. I would highly recommend this vacation rental!"

  • Charm, Taste, and a True Hawaiian Treat

    "Jim and Kepi have designed a wonderful bungalow setting in the heart of paradise, with attention to detail to make it beautiful and comfortable, and clean. Escape from the noise of the city and enjoy the feel of the island, but very reasonable access Hilo and surrounding smaller cities and services, beaches, Volcano National Park, and more. My wife and I enjoyed the charm of the Lava room and would recommend it to any seeking a comfortable, clean, and very Hawaiian feel and a jungle surrounding. Take the time to get to know Jim and Kepi and your stay will be even more charming. Comfortable bed, well set kitchen, very enjoyable living area and great wifi (10 to 20 Mbs down, 1 to 5 upload) and good cell coverage so you enjoy the beauty without a forced disconnect from communications. Thank you Kepi and Jim. Will always hold fond memories of our stay in your paradise. M&L"

  • Lovely Hilo house

    "Your home is lovely. Our favorite was the ocean front sunrise every morning. We had rain for only brief period on one day. The guys loved the pool and were in it every morning and evening. the kitchen was so well equipped, we simply shopped in town and ate at home every evening. Really cool narrow country road right across the highway makes a great morning or evening walk to the beach. The house was super clean,the pool was ell maintained and the owners were promptly responsive to any questions or concerns. Next time we hope the spa will be up and running. I'd recommend the house to friends traveling to Hilo."
