"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."

"This place was the perfect place to start our vacation. It was bright, clean, and much more spacious than in the pictures. The neighborhood was very nice. We went all over the Big Island and also stayed in Volcanoes and Kona. We feel that Hilo would make a great retirement destination. We hope that Lopakas Family Lodge will still be available for us to stay for extended amounts of time in the future. Mahalo, Bev, for your hospitality and for having such a nice place for travelers to enjoy."

"We spent here 10 nights/days at the condo around New Years Eve. The condo was the perfect accomodation related to our planned activities around the volcano. Everything at the condo was as described, the cleaning and all the ammenities fulfilled our expectations. The pool was closed due to renovations works at the backside of the building but this was not really an issue to us. Hopefully we will return soon.
Thanks and best regards from Austria!"

"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!"
