"* 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."

"This is a great vacation home -- the pictures do not do it justice. It is well furnished and a nice remodel. About 10 minutes from downtown Hilo and 2 hours from Kona, so it was very convenient to the major sights and activities that we wanted to see. The house was clean, spacious, and has nice features, especially the kitchen -- it was truly like coming home after our day's activities. We were fortunate to get to know the owners of the house and they immediately made us feel like family. They are a generous and friendly couple -- they truly showed us the Aloha spirit during our stay there. They recommended the Hawaiian Style Cafe in Hilo to us and that has become our favorite restaurant on the Big Island. We plan to come back again next year and hopefully this home will be available at that time."

"We came up to the Big Island for a baseball Tournament and Joyce was so helpful about her rental. I called other rentals but wouldn't allow us to have 10 people in there homes. When I talked to Joyce I explained my situation and she was very understandable. When we got to the house we were amazed it was so beautiful and roomy. The only down fall was it was hot but the house has a lot of windows. We talked to the neighbors and they said yes the weather has been very hot the last couple of weeks so we can't control the weather. Our overall stay was wonderful and the kitchen area is amazing lots of room for cooking and not having to eat out every day."
