  • Akaka Falls VRBO

    "This is a great home to stay at if you're attending Merrie Monarch. It's 15-20 minutes to Hilo town (or Imiloa for the cultural events that go on there) and just another 5-10 minutes to the Edith Kanakaole Stadium and the wonderful craft fairs throughout town and the hotels. The oceanview from the lanai is so beautiful regardless of whether it rains or not you can't help but absorb all the different moods that weather changes reflect; not to say the least about the early morning sunrise off the ocean and the various cloud formations that help your imagination run rampant. The house was comfortable for four adults and one keiki. We also took up the studio next door with a last minute adult add-on. Both homes were just nice and comfortable. Being near Aka ka Falls in the early morning hours as the sun begins to rise you catch the rain the comes down from the mountains...quite refreshing . All in all it was a great place to stay and we all had a wonderful time."

  • Relaxing retreat

    "My husband, baby & I traveled from Oahu (where we live) to the Big Island to meet up with family from the mainland and New Zealand for a few days. This vacation rental was perfect. It's quiet, clean and has everything you need to make for an enjoyable stay. Starr met us at the rental and was very friendly. The owners were also a pleasure to deal with. I loved that there was a pack and play we could use without having to bring ours with us. Highly recommended!!"

  • 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."

  • Hawaii stay near Hilo

    "We stayed at the beach house for 5 days the end of Aug 2014. This was our favorite part of our stay in Hawaii. The area was lush and tropical, and everything I envisioned when arriving on Hawaii (it was our 1st visit). We could see and hear the ocean a block away and feel the cool ocean breezes. The house was in a small subdivision of homes, but we felt like we were secluded. There were tall tropical trees surrounding the house for privacy. The wrap around porch was refreshingly cool in the evening with a grill, 2 tables and chairs and a hammock. The rental is even bigger in person than the pictures show. The kitchen, living room, and dining area were all open air. It felt like you were outside with the windows on all 3 walls. There was a small single air conditioner unit in the dining/living room area that we didn't even have to use. All of the three sided windows in the living room area could be left open even when raining, because of the generous lanai overhang. There were large floor fans that we moved into the bedrooms at night for an extra breeze. There were plenty of board games, books for entertainment and bikes in the lower garage area. One afternoon, we just chilled at the house watching local Hawaii news on the cable tv. If we wanted to cool off, the ocean was just a block away. The house was equipped with everything you could possibly need for home cooked meals. We had ice from the ice maker, there was a dishwasher, all kinds of pots, pans, dishware, etc. In fact, one night we cooked steaks on the grill, and ate outside on the porch. I felt like royalty. The master bedroom was spacious with its own private 2 sink vanity. It was on one side of the house and the other 2 bedrooms on the other side with their own shared bath. The other bedrooms were a bit smaller but still plenty roomy. There was plenty of storage for luggage and clothes. I liked the general location of the rental because it was far enough away from town to feel "away from it all" but close enough to be convenient to get groceries, shop or do tourist events (like ziplinine, helicopter rides, farmers market). The landlord was very helpful with tidbits about local attractions and upcoming events. He told us about local swimming spots like Okanakaha Beach Park (just past the ice cream shop on the right) going towards Hilo. The ponds were shallower and warmer (good for the non-swimmers in our group). I would highly recommend this rental to future vacationers."
