"We enjoyed this nicely appointed condo. Very comfortable. The setting in Carl Smith beach park is really nice. It doesn't have a view of the ocean, but there is a nice view of the forest canopy. And this is a small point, but for some it will be important: you can change the input on the TV so we were able to watch Netflix movies using our Chromecast fob and the apartment wifi, which we really enjoyed."

"We enjoyed our stay. An expanse of ocean can be seen from the bedrooms, dining room and the screened porch. The yard is gated, large and private. The pool is a big plus. The home is located in a semi-rural area a short drive from Hilo and near a botanical garden. The house and grounds were well maintained. Checking in and out were easy. We will return."

"* Location/View: The Lai Nani grounds are very well maintained. The entrance walk features some lovely gardens, and then down the hill towards the living spaces there is a gazebo and a great view of the ocean. They have clearly put a lot of effort into the property and it shows. As you've probably heard, the Northeast side of the island get a lot of rain, and we definitely found that to be true during our stay. Finally, the resort itself is fairly isolated - probably about 15 minutes from Hilo or any other town. This is either a good thing or not depending on what you want so just be aware.
* Interior: My first impression was "wow" - the bungalows have high ceilings, and a clean, sleek design style. Be careful about leaving food or dirty utensils laying in the sink - we found that the bugs were quick to come out. I suspect this is more a problem with the region rather than this specific unit - there is a lot of lush vegetation and rain, and so there's probably a lot more bugs too!
* Sleeping Experience: The blinds closed enough for the room to be "pretty" dark. The mattress was fairly comfortable but it creaked really loudly whenever we moved which made it difficult to sleep.
* TV and Internet: The TV was a nice flatscreen, and the internet was easy to set up and fairly fast."

"the owners of this wonderful place housed our entire family of eleven & was so accommodating to making sure our family had EVERYTHING that was needed & went beyond themselves. TO have a place that was cozy, clean and homey is one thing, but to have such beautiful people to come back to the room to, were like family to us. Thank you kindly to Megan & Jasper. Better than hotel life!!"
