"Being surrounded by the beauty of this property and the amazing ocean view was just what we needed. After touring all day, it was nice to come 'home' and relax on the lanai watching the changing colors the evening sky and ocean provided. We had our breakfast outside each morning listening to the birds singing and even watching two pheasants that have made the yard their home. We will definitely be back. Mahalo Sandy and Bob"

"* Location/View: The Lai Nani grounds are very well maintained. The entrance walk features some lovely gardens, and then down the hill towards the living spaces there is a gazebo and a great view of the ocean. They have clearly put a lot of effort into the property and it shows. As you've probably heard, the Northeast side of the island get a lot of rain, and we definitely found that to be true during our stay. Finally, the resort itself is fairly isolated - probably about 15 minutes from Hilo or any other town. This is either a good thing or not depending on what you want so just be aware.
* Interior: My first impression was "wow" - the bungalows have high ceilings, and a clean, sleek design style. Be careful about leaving food or dirty utensils laying in the sink - we found that the bugs were quick to come out. I suspect this is more a problem with the region rather than this specific unit - there is a lot of lush vegetation and rain, and so there's probably a lot more bugs too!
* Sleeping Experience: The blinds closed enough for the room to be "pretty" dark. The mattress was fairly comfortable but it creaked really loudly whenever we moved which made it difficult to sleep.
* TV and Internet: The TV was a nice flatscreen, and the internet was easy to set up and fairly fast."

"I had previously rented a different unit in this building, and enjoyed it. Even though I live on the Big Island, these condos are like a mini-vacation in Hilo. It's fantastic to be so close to the Carl Smith (4 mile) beach park, and the views from the condo of the surrounding ponds are great. The beds were very comfortable, and everything was clean and in order. I appreciate that they provided beach towels and lots of extra linens as well. The rental company gave me excellent customer service, and the price was very reasonable-I can't recommend this place enough!"

"We had a short four day stay at this lovely home, and could not be happier with our choice. The home is spacious, well furnished, surrounded by lush vegetation, with an ocean view, and only a short drive from Hilo. We were able to cook everyday with the well-equipped kitchen. We had Foosball competitions and Trump (card game) battles that created memories that will last forever. Everything one could wish for was provided. I would highly recommend this vacation rental!"
