"Everything about the Lopaka lodge surpassed all our expectations. Beverly thought of everything imaginable for the vacationer's needs to guarantee a beautiful, fun, stress-free stay in her clean, comfortable, private home. We were greeted with a thorough walk-through of each room & impressed with how well-stocked every room was --kitchen had everything! Bathroom had everything! Bedroom, closets, nice overhead fans & windows for cross ventilation. Lots of thought and good taste. (I didn't feel like she stocked the place with her hand-me-downs from her own home). Everything seemed new & fresh! We had morning coffee/tea on the lanai, breakfast at the table, packed lunches for our very full all day outings, either dinners out at great local restaurants (Kenichis) or fresh fish bought at Suisan market for a home cooked dinner. It was so nice to come home & rest in a quiet & private place after a long day! The only bad thing I can say about the place is that Beverly's Lopaka lodge has marred us for life, because it will be impossible to find anything else quite as nice without spending a fortune! Much love & appreciation, Cathy & Fred"

"The house is spotless and everything works great. We finally had a place we could catch up on our laundry. We enjoyed dinners and wine on the water by taking a couple chairs out back. Great internet. We would drive to Hilo everyday, which isn't bad at all. We did the Volcano one day. That also didn't take long to get there. A great deall for this location. The owner sent a guide of things to do. We used that and the Hawaii Revealed book at the home to tour around. So many great places to see. We really discovered this side of the Island. We are already planning our next stay."

"Hilo Hale is conveniently located about 10 minutes drive from downtown Hilo, and close to the KTA grocery store and Prince Kuhio mall. At the same time, it is set in a large garden in a quiet and safe neighbourhood.
The house is spacious, clean and comfortable, as well as light and bright. With plenty of windows to open for a through breeze, the lack of air conditioning is not an issue. The kitchen is rather old-fashioned, but functional with the usual appliances in good working order. No oven and no dishwasher is a bit of a shame in an otherwise well equipped house, but with a toaster oven and the huge old porcelain sink we did fine. The cookware was good and there were a few staples waiting for us, but surprisingly no foil, plastic wrap, or ziplock bags.
Washer and dryer are fine, although located outside and under the kitchen in a very low-ceilinged space where anyone over 5’2 would have to stoop. Laundry detergent was supplied, but nothing else.
It was lovely to have a bathtub, not only a shower, in a nice bathroom. The one bathroom was enough for the two of us, but for four people there could be a bit of a traffic jam.
The location is an excellent base for trips to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, to Pahoa and Puna, to the string of beaches along Kalanianaole Avenue, to the Hamakua coast, and is also quite handy to the new Saddle Road."

"Everything was good. Place was clean, jacuzzi was great. Neighborhood quiet
internet connection was good.
so many little things provided that we did not expect. e.g. bikes, kitchen staples, beach towels.
tide pool swimming awesome.
other places to visit on Big Island - off the main tourist track"
