Recent Hilo District reviews

  • Great property, fantastic owners

    "We stayed at Heaven's Door for two weeks from the last week of Sept. to the first week of Oct. The rainforest setting was stunning and the house was perfect. It was exceptionally well kept and well appointed. We used it as a base to explore the whole island and found the location perfect for our needs. Nowhere was too far away and the seclusion allowed us to unwind without typical hotel stresses. On those days when we just chose to "hang out" the diverse rainforest activity kept us busy watching and photographing the plants and a variety of wildlife from black-crested night herons to a multitude of colorful birds. The friendly fish and feral cats quickly became a part of our routine and members of the family. Watching the geckos after sunset was an endless source of amusement. Linda was an absolute charm to deal with. Friendly and abundantly helpful, she handled booking and payment swiftly and completely, including a personal call when we made our initial inquiry. Clear directions and comprehensive instructions around the property eliminated any stress with being in a strange place. The library included the latest tour books which became ready references making daily outings easy and fun. We also met Lindsay, the caretaker, who gave us a friendly Ninole greeting and made sure we were comfortable. We have done other VRBOs and this one stands out as the best in our experience. Many thanks Linda and Ken."

  • AMAZING!!!!!

    "We had such an amazing time. Soooooo relaxing. I thanked the property owner for calling in the whales to play right in front of the house!!!! Three sets! And swimming next to sea turtles at the beach was awesome! It was even possible to get my boys away from their video games, given the fun to be had here. :). We wish we had another week! We will be back."

  • 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!"

  • Great accommodations, well-located for main sights

    "The pictures are accurate of the inside of the house. It is a lovely bungalo with lots of light, clean and very well taken care of. It does sit in the middle of a clearing, so it does not get shade and can get hot in the afternoon. There is good cross ventilation, though, and effective ceiling fans. The kitchen is well supplied with utensils, there is a tv and DVDs but no internet. The host, Linda, is friendly and helpful. While living room and kitchen windows do not have curtains (no real reason to since there is no other building visible and only one car went by on the private road to the house in our three days there), there are blinds in the bedrooms. The setting is beautiful, feeling very tropical. The house is about 2 to 3 miles off highway 11, roughly a third of the way from Hilo to Volcanoes National Park. So it is relatively close to Hilo, the volcano, and to Pahoa and Puna. We would certainly go back another time."
