Truly a Home Away from Home!
"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!"

"We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house that is right in the heart of Hilo. We were amazed at how quiet it was because we were just a few minutes from downtown on a fairly busy street. Amazed that we didn't need the air conditioning, open windows provided wonderful cross breeze. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and this is the best stocked kitchen we have seen to date. Absolutely everything we needed was at our finger tips. Beds and furniture were very comfortable. We would like to see just a few more soaps and paper products supplied, otherwise it was perfect. Any questions or issues were addressed right away. would recommend this house to everyone and will most likely try to rent it again on our next trek to the Big Island."

"We were blown away by this property. You can't ask for a more relaxing setting. The views from the pool are outstanding! The cottage was a great size and stocked with everything you could need. The owners went above and beyond to make sure this cottage was comfortable for their guests. We loved the beautiful pool, waterfall, banana grove and the adorable dogs! I was concerned with how much "wild life" nosie there was at night but I had no trouble sleeping and actually missed the noise when we got home! We would stay here again in a heart beat and highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking to stay near Hilo."

"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."
