Enjoyed our stay
"The place is every bit as nice as advertised and Sophia was very helpful and accommodating. You should never go to the big island without seeing this side of the island. You should spend a day exploring the volcano, a day at the Hilo farmers market and at wai'Opae tide pools, and a day at waipio valley. I have been to all of the islands and Hilo has the best farmers market of all. We snorkeled captain cook, Mauna lani resort and wai'opea tide pools. We loved them all, but actually liked the tide pools the best. You must go near high tide and you will see the best fish if you swim out a little farther. We never got anywhere close to the crashing waves, but saw tons of fish. If you are reasonably in shape, you should hike down into waipio valley. There is a 1400 waterfall to the left, after you get to the bottom, and to the right is a black sand beach. If you boulder hop on the south end of the beach, you will get to a waterfall pouring into the ocean. On the way to waipio valley, don't miss Hawaii tropical botanical garden and Akaka falls. The botanical garden is the best botanical garden that I have ever seen. As soon as I got off the plane, I took the kids to see rainbow falls and pe'e pe'e falls in downtown Hilo. The kids loved it and it took all of 5 minutes. Ate at cafe pesto and Ken's pancakes in Hilo, loved them both. Went to pahoa fresh fish in pahoa. This place looks like a dive, but I loved the fish and chips. You get a choice of mahi- mahi, ahi, ono or swordfish. Hawaii is enchanting and is my favorite island. Next time I go back, I will spend 4 days on each side of the island. Do not try to drive back and forth across the island more than once. It takes 2.5 hours each way."

"Wonderful rental house with a fabulous pool. We stayed 2 weeks and were thrilled at how well the house worked for our vacation. The location on Kaloli point is perfect for a stay in the South Hilo area. Hawaiian Paradise Park is a beautiful neighborhood with lots of great activities and incredible views. The walk to the ocean is short and the coastline is so cool. We saw whales and turtles right from the shore. The house is as gorgeous as it looks, and by far the cleanest Rental home that we have ever stayed in (we rent at least 2 or 3 times a year). We highly recommend this house for your future vacation."

"Kauai has beautiful beaches but this was exceptionally beautiful! This place is truly unique and such a treat! The cottage was perfect and even our Hilo ohana really enjoyed it. Definitely recommend it!!!"

"We had a very warm welcome in this wonderful house with great ambience. Everything has been thought through, we didn't miss anything. Immediately when entering the house you can only be charmed by the immense living and dining room facing the sea with its crashing waves. It was great for resting and walking around on the lava shelf. The whole family was really happy and we recommend to all our friends - Mahalo!"
