"We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house that is right in the heart of Hilo. We were amazed at how quiet it was because we were just a few minutes from downtown on a fairly busy street. Amazed that we didn't need the air conditioning, open windows provided wonderful cross breeze. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and this is the best stocked kitchen we have seen to date. Absolutely everything we needed was at our finger tips. Beds and furniture were very comfortable. We would like to see just a few more soaps and paper products supplied, otherwise it was perfect. Any questions or issues were addressed right away. would recommend this house to everyone and will most likely try to rent it again on our next trek to the Big Island."

The house was great and seen a lot of wild life from the deck
"House was very nice and the owner was great to deal with and will help you in anyway she can can't say enough about her, the home is located on a scenic route and is well worth driving down,it is a must to get a smothie just across the road,the view from the back deck is fantastic,we have rented a lot of homes and this was one of the best,I give it 4 1/2 stars out of five,not to far from shopping in Hilo, we had a blast and would rent her home again, for us the house was worth it,I recommend you rent a four wheel vehicle,there are some fantastic places to see that you can only get to by 4 wheel and if you come here you want to see it all,don't be afraid to ask a local they are great people,have fun from wisconsin"

"Having never been on the Big Island, it was not easy choosing the perfect home and location for my family of 5. After having spent 3 weeks in this house my family and I agree I could not have chosen a better location or a better house.
This is an absolutely beautiful house and had everything we needed.
We loved visiting the beautiful falls just minutes away.
We loved having a store in Papaaloa to buy milk bread and delicious freshly baked pizza. We visited Waipio valley, pololu valley and Havi to see the Kings statue and have the best Shave ice in the island.
We loved driving through Waimea to the Honokaa Coast to So many beautiful beaches to spend the day boogie boarding, snorkelling and making sand castles. Horse back riding and great restaurant in Waimea were great.
Tex Drive in has amazing Malasadas and it's just a short drive away. :)
The house was spacious , very clean and had everything we needed. When we come back in a few years, we all would love to stay here again!!!
Thanks so much for sharing your home with us !"

"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"
