  • We will return for sure!

    "We spent here 10 nights/days at the condo around New Years Eve. The condo was the perfect accomodation related to our planned activities around the volcano. Everything at the condo was as described, the cleaning and all the ammenities fulfilled our expectations. The pool was closed due to renovations works at the backside of the building but this was not really an issue to us. Hopefully we will return soon. Thanks and best regards from Austria!"

  • Tucked away comfort

    "Checked in on a Saturday, stayed for 5 days. The house is -very- comfortable. All the basics, and very well taken care of. Wifi's included--bonus for checking directions and nearby locations. Just outside downtown Hilo, and yet neighborhood is -very- quiet. House was cool at night and got nice sun during the day. Bathrooms were very spacious and kitchen was very-well equipped. The only downsides were: there was a washing machine and dryer (very helpful!), no laundry soap was provided. With not being able to travel with it, we had to buy some and then leave almost a full bottle. Same thing with dish soap. Felt like a waste :( . Other than those 2 things, the property is very nice, well-located, and very comfortable!"

  • Wonderful place

    "Hale Hamakua is a wonderful place. Very roomy. we were two parents, our son and his children 23 and 21. everyone had a bed room. You need a car to stay here. We had a van and we used it to cover the whole island. Everything we wanted to see was on the Hilo side and at the volcanos (which erupted a week after we left). The grandkids went all the way around the island. We had no interest in Kona, otherwise we did it all, The zipline was fabulous (for the kids!). Be sure and go all around the bay (south east) In Hilo. The water pump is a noise problem. I have already suggested they isolate the pipe and filters from the structure with rubber. It is a good pump that kept up with all the showers going at once. This was our second trip. The management group was excellent with good instructions. We found the house first try. We would go again and I hope we will. Jim"

  • 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."
