"My husband and I spent our 2nd anniversary there....three glorious days. The rental was very wonderful. We felt right at home and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and the bed very comfy!!! The Lanai was perfect for morning coffee or relaxation in the afternoon. It was some of the best snorkeling I have ever had....and I have done done it a fair amount. The tide pools were just an easy walk across the street. We rode the bikes and sat in the private Jacuzzi every night. Everything was very clean. We had some problems with the internet wifi and the maintenance guy was Johnny on the spot with some resolve. The owners were easy to communicate with and returned our deposit money very quickly after our return home. We shall return soon."

"Hakalau is our favorite place to be!! The whole house was very inviting. Everything was perfect for all members of our family. Thank you Starr for keeping this place a favorite of ours and being a part of our family. We are already talking about coming back, but not for Merrie Monarch. Just to come an relax and enjoy more sight seeing places that we have not been. Again I thank you for your hospitality. I will be calling as soon as we can establish a date."

"Wow, this was a nice place! This has to be one of the most unique properties with VRBO. Having a very nice cottage with a scenic view of a pasture and trees, a splendid view of the ocean, their own waterfall (and bench to sit and watch), creek with banana trees, pool and hot tub, exotic rambutan fruit in season, and the most personable and helpful hosts, Keala and Steve, one couldn't ask for any place better in order to relax and use as a base of travel. We were so glad that we chose the Hilo area rather than the western side of the island. Hawai'i is small enough that we circled the island during our stay in addition to cutting thru the Saddle Road (Hwy 200) in the center. We enjoyed the variety of inexpensive Thai (fell in love with the food!), Vietnamese, and Japanese restaurants in Hilo. There are many traditional ones there, too. Sights close by include waterfalls, the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, a black sand beach (Richardson's Beach Park), and Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. Above all, be sure to schedule some time just to sit and relax at the cottage. We sure hope to come back one day!"

"Hale La'i was so perfect for our stay. It offered every comfort, including entertainment goodies, for a fun filled time in between doing all the Island fun stuff. Thank you HPVR for an excellent stay!"
