A Hidden GEM on the Big Island
"Not to start any debate but I strongly disagree with the latest comment that was made. If you read the information about the rental you would be very happy with the accommodations, price and location. For $90 this is a steal and truly a hidden gem on the Big Island. Hotels are 3x that price and have nothing close to the atmosphere, location, and experience. If you want to avoid a little cob-web, ditch the heat, and be in AC..... this is NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU! However, if you love the fresh air, trade winds and morning showers with sunny afternoons this is it! The unit is clean, nice in size and has everything you need to have a relaxing getaway. The owners are very friendly and helpful in any way they can. We felt like part of the family here as they shared the ALOHA Spirit during our stay! We would come again without a doubt!! Thanks for the great place!"

"We arrived on the Big Island right after Hurricane Iselle had made land fall over Kapoho, where we had planned to stay for the week and we were unable to use the rental we had booked. So on to plan B and the house on Hilo Bay. The owner was very accommodating and gracious allowing us to book last minute. It was pretty muggy because of the remnants of the hurricane, but every room had fans to keep the house cool. Nights were quite comfortable.
I will say that the house was very well appointed, everything you could ever need - including coffee grinder, pots/pans, etc. Plenty of silverware, mugs, glasses, and dishes. Very impressed! I've stayed at several private rentals and can say that this was by far the best equipped. It was also very clean and the owners gave explicit instructions about how to take care of the place, even the ants. We really appreciated having the instructions because it just helped with taking care of things and respecting the owners' property. The beds were also made with good quality linens when we arrived and there were plenty of towels.
The location on the water was really nice as was having the deck with great views of the bay. However, it was also near the port and there was some heavy equipment and industrial activities nearby. Quite a bit of activity during the day but very very quiet in the evening, so I would say it's really not much of an impact. The best part was that it was pretty close to everything and a perfect home base for staying on the Big Island. We were minutes from many restaurants and stores. Near Rainbow Falls, Richardsons Beach.
I would definitely stay there again - the owners were very easy to work with and we very much enjoyed our stay."

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was very clean.
The property manager was more than helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
the place was all you can ask for
had everything you needed in fact more chairs then needed after the new owner showed up one day with five old dinning chairs to apparently store here! Oh well no biggie just seems odd they didn't fit anywhere. Then the day I'm leaving she's at the door (10:55 am) with a shopping cart full of nick knacks saying she needs to add more things ? Thank goodness I was all packed but still had to get her to move her cart out of the door way so I could pick up my stuff and get out the door.
She was very nice though ."

"Checked in on a Saturday, stayed for 5 days. The house is -very- comfortable. All the basics, and very well taken care of. Wifi's included--bonus for checking directions and nearby locations. Just outside downtown Hilo, and yet neighborhood is -very- quiet. House was cool at night and got nice sun during the day. Bathrooms were very spacious and kitchen was very-well equipped.
The only downsides were: there was a washing machine and dryer (very helpful!), no laundry soap was provided. With not being able to travel with it, we had to buy some and then leave almost a full bottle. Same thing with dish soap. Felt like a waste :( .
Other than those 2 things, the property is very nice, well-located, and very comfortable!"
