"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"

"We arrived to a clean and well-stocked condo. It's not the Ritz, folks, but it was clean, comfortable, well-stocked, and in a perfect location. We enjoyed the view and seeing whales from the lanai with the binoculars provided. The location was convenient to our planned activities, yet away from any noisy town traffic. Our favorite part was snorkeling next door with the turtles. We went just before sunset and there were about 30 turtles in the lagoon. We hiked around volcanoes national park, and enjoyed the fresh produce and the lilikoi butters at the farmers market. But, the most amazing day was at Imiloa planetarium. We went for an hour show and none of us was ready to leave after 4 hours, including our four year old. We have been to planetaria in Los Angeles and Chicago, but prefer this one. Our presenter, Cam, also works at Mauna Kea on the telescopes. He was very informative as well as patient and inspiring for our child. The food at Imiloa was the best we tasted of any restaurant in Hilo.
This condo was a great place to stay and we will definitely try to stay in this unit again."

"All of the great things other reviewers say about this apartment are true. View from the dining area was absolutely beautiful. Roomy apartment with everything you need. Short drive from Hilo. Wifi worked well. Warm welcome from the owner. I would definitely recommend this place."
