"Staying on this property we truly felt like we were in paradise. The location was great; it was near everything we wanted to do and it had everything our family needed. The house was well stocked with linens, dishes, etc. The beds were comfortable and there was even a crib and highchair for our little one. We loved sitting out on the lanai and watching the ocean. The older kids loved the Foosball table. Our only regret is that we didn't get to stay longer."

"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!"

"We arrived to a clean and well-stocked condo. It's not the Ritz, folks, but it was clean, comfortable, well-stocked, and in a perfect location. We enjoyed the view and seeing whales from the lanai with the binoculars provided. The location was convenient to our planned activities, yet away from any noisy town traffic. Our favorite part was snorkeling next door with the turtles. We went just before sunset and there were about 30 turtles in the lagoon. We hiked around volcanoes national park, and enjoyed the fresh produce and the lilikoi butters at the farmers market. But, the most amazing day was at Imiloa planetarium. We went for an hour show and none of us was ready to leave after 4 hours, including our four year old. We have been to planetaria in Los Angeles and Chicago, but prefer this one. Our presenter, Cam, also works at Mauna Kea on the telescopes. He was very informative as well as patient and inspiring for our child. The food at Imiloa was the best we tasted of any restaurant in Hilo.
This condo was a great place to stay and we will definitely try to stay in this unit again."

"We are locals from Kona and "staycation" on the Hilo side. We have stayed at Uli Kai four times and will definitely go back. It is cheaper than staying at a hotel and the location is quiet and private. It is not fancy but there is a lot of space and it was clean. I don't know if the pool was heated or if it was just really sunny but it was the perfect temperature. There is also a nice big yard with fruit trees. Right across the street from the ocean.
The owner Pao makes the process so easy. She always responds quickly. I booked everything from my cell phone. HPP is about 20 min from Hilo, 10 min to Keaau town, and is also a good place to stay if you want to go to Volcano National Park."
