Great house adn wonderful stay!
"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!"

"Definitely a great place and we were so lucky to find this gem. Looking forward to our next visit soon! Great location! So easy to get around the island from here! Best of all feels like a home away from home ! Great hosts! Sophie, Dave and the 3 pups!"

"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."

"Our family had a great stay at the house! The space was perfect for our family of 4. When we arrived I was thrilled to find the pack and play set up and even a set of baby towels and bib were there waiting! We couldn't have been happier! We enjoyed perusing the plants and flowers in the yard. The location was great for sight seeing along the Hamakua Coast and exploring Hilo town. We will definitely be back!"
