  • Hono Hale 3 with Jim and Kepi

    "My wife and I throughly enjoyed our stay in the Lava Room. It was private and neat with the Polynesian decor. The owners Jim and Kepi were very warm with that Aloha Spirit and very informative of everything around the area, particularliy the Warm Ponds my wife really enjoyed which theraputically reduced the swelling in her ankles. You will need a rental car to get around, but will appreciate the freedom and access to everything on the Island. This made for a great Anniversary vacation stop for us. I would highly recommend this place for anyone."

  • Best vacation ever!!

    "My husband and I spent two weeks at Hulili. The cottage was aesthetically delightful, elegantly simple and complete, like a second home with every comfort and convenience, including a full kitchen, umbrellas if it rained, a cooler, a guide to the Big Island, I mean everything you'd need, not to mention all of the most delicious bananas you could eat right from the farm - and longans. The location was perfect for exploring the Island, close enough to Hilo, Puna, the Volcano and even over to the Kona side for day trips. Sheree was a pleasure to meet, always bright, cheerful and helpful, a wonderful person! After a day out, the cottage was the perfect place to come back to relax and enjoy the fantastically beautiful sunsets, stars and sunrises. A truly blessed and magical place! We will always remember our time there in paradise."

  • 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."
