"My husband and I spent 4 days here with our 2 teenage daughters while on springbreak. We had one of the studios with 3 beds and it worked out great... plenty of room. The experience couldn't be more different from the conventional hotel. Its a large property surrounded by field and farmland. Early mornings were spent drinking coffee on the porch listening to birds while overlooking the ocean. We made hot breakfast everymorning and ate on the porch before heading out for the day. The kitchenette is adequate for basic food prep. Our hosts, Vicki and Ben are a very warm and personable couple who shared knowledge, stories and fruit. There was a goodie basket in our room on arrival and fresh flowers in a vase on the kitchen table. The room and property is very clean and well kept and we were able to take walks along the private road...Great view of Muana Kea covered in snow! The house is well located on the east side of the island to use for a jumping off point to visit Hilo and below (Volcano NP, etc) and also Honokaa & Waipio Valley. We stayed at three locations during our visit to the big island and this was our favorite by far. Definitely we will return! Thank you Vicki and Ben :-)"

"We just spent 5 wonderful days at Rick and Faith's house in Hakalau. We chose it as it was near family and also gave us plenty of space for ourselves and our older teens. Each got their own bedroom and bath which they loved. My favorite part was the huge lanai and the otuside dining table! There is a beach park right down the road from the house which is lovely and easy to get to. Views are fantastic. We also enjoyed time at beaches in Hilo. Our favorite for snorkeling was Richardson's beach. Really special. Easy to get in to Hilo but far enough away to enjoy the quiet, the breezes and the view. House is incredibly well furnished. It looks just like the pictures. It really feels like your own place for the tme you are there. They have thought of everything. And the information they sent us of where to go and what to do was very helfpul. they have put a lot of thought and time to make your stay terrific. It's clear they really care about their home and about sharing it with others. Best part is Starr, who greeted us, explained all the workings of the house and also gave us recommendations of where to shop and what to see. She is a gem! Would love to go back again and would definately try to stay here! Wonderful!"

"This is our second time staying at Hulili Farms. The first was two years ago, and it was paradise. Yet, I'll admit, when I was booking our second trip to Hilo, I looked at other properties in the area just to see what else was out there. I found plenty of great places in this area, but nothing and I mean nothing compared to what I knew was waiting for me at Hulili farms. Sheree's banana bread alone puts this property above all others. But past the bread, the property offers amenities that the other's didn't. Many places looked like they were furnished with someones old cast offs, but here the cottage is comfortable and homey with a well stocked kitchen. And nothing beats sleeping out on the hanging bed and listening to the rain. The location is perfect. 20 minutes into town for what ever you need, and then back to privacy. The drive along the Hakalau coast is breathtaking. You're basically in a rain forest. It also gives easy access to the rest of the island. We even went to the southern most tip of the island and it didn't feel far. Sheree has this wonderful knack of being around when you need her yet you would never really know someone else is living on the property. Beautiful views of the ocean and access to the water is just down the hill. For our next trip, I'm going to save myself the time of exploring other options and just book Hulili farms."
