Recent Hilo District reviews

  • Home away from home

    "We enjoyed the condo. It was taking care of very well. Fully equiped. We would recommednd this property to family and to friends. We loved shopping in downtown Hilo from the farmers market, eating at restaurants and all the shops."

  • Very quiet and relaxing

    "We found the cottage exactly as pictured. The house is situated on a dead end street and we only saw 3 cars pass in 7 night stay. If you want to cook on a stove choose elsewhere. But for us we were out exploring the island and eating at all the wonderful restaurants so we had no use for a stove. The house is clean. The Hilo side of the island does get rain everyday. It comes and goes quickly and during our stay it mainly rained in the night. Due to the constant moisture (over 100 inches of rain a year) there are mold issues in the shower. Speaking of the showers they are roomy and very luxurious. I wouldn't recommend this house for 2 couples, but a family of 4 it would work great. There is no privacy except for the bathroom. One must have a car due to it's location. The local (within walking distance) shops are closed more than open. The bakery is not very good! The coffee shop doesn't open until 8am. Try Moonstruck in Hilo for French pastries and Sombats in Hilo for Thai. Both worth trying more than once. It seems the good restrauants have limited open hours so check yelp for the times they are open. Both are worth multiple visits!!!"

  • Hilo with a view

    "Great view. Whale watching from the balcony with 5min drive to downtown Hilo. Nothing like sleeping to the sound of ocean waves and waking to watch the sunrise over the ocean from your lanai. We bought fresh Mahi Mahi from the fish market and grilled it on the grill and ate it with fresh fruit and vegetables from the farmers market. All the tastes, sites and sounds that you want from a Hawaii experience"

  • Good!

    "* 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."
