  • One unforgettable holiday

    "We rented Uli Kai to meet up with our far flung family and spend our Golden Wedding there together. We were not disappointed. The house was easily found thanks to the instructions sent by the owner and was wonderfully situated with easy access to the nearby, picturesque, lava covered shoreline where we would go in the mornings and watch the turtles play in the waves. The house itself easily accommodated all ten of us with adequate privacy. The kitchen, with immediate outside access to the car park, was particularly well equipped, clean and convenient for dining either at the adjacent table or on the screened balcony. There was little noise from the odd car which passed and the fenced garden with its own lava flow, planted out with orchids and other tropical flowers was a delight. The pool and jacuzzi were added options for relaxing and were of particular joy to the youngsters aged eight to sixteen, amusing them for hours on end. We did not use the TV once. We hope life affords us the opportunity one day to spend another holiday there."

  • Nice place ,with new owner it shows

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: the place was all you can ask for had everything you needed in fact more chairs then needed after the new owner showed up one day with five old dinning chairs to apparently store here! Oh well no biggie just seems odd they didn't fit anywhere. Then the day I'm leaving she's at the door (10:55 am) with a shopping cart full of nick knacks saying she needs to add more things ? Thank goodness I was all packed but still had to get her to move her cart out of the door way so I could pick up my stuff and get out the door. She was very nice though ."

  • Beyond Expectation for the price.

    "Our family 2A+2C stayed in this cosy bungalow for 4 nights. The accomodation was very clean and well presented.The bathroom and kitchen were both modern with all amenities provided. Check-in was easy and our security deposit was promptly returned. It is a short drive north of Hilo in a peaceful neighbourhood. We had an easy drive to the Volcanoes National Park as well as Mauna Kea from here. We would highly recommend this accomodation."

  • 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."
