  • Excellent accommodations

    "This condo is certainly as advertised. We found absolutely everything we needed for our stay, including beach towels and boogie boards for the beach. We were even furnished with bath soap, shampoo and laundry detergent. It's convenient to grocery shopping, so we took advantage of the barbeque almost every night. The patio offers a great early morning view of schools of dolphins swimming past, and the sunsets are spectacular. The swimming pool is large and has plenty of tables and lounges, so we weren't bothered by some children who wanted to splash and play at the other end. There were 5 of us (4 adults and a teenager), and we were quite comfortable. The rental process was painless, and the agent/owner was very responsive and easy to work with. I would recommend this rental without hesitation."

  • Outstanding!

    "My wife and I found this property to be the best value of our entire trip to Hawaii. We spent our last 5 days on the big island here and were very impressed. Peaceful, quiet very well appointed, beautiful furnishings, we did not want for anything. When we arrived at Hilo, we picked up what we thought were a few necessary items, coffee, condiments and a few things to eat, well, we were impressed to find the kitchen, laundry and bathrooms to be very well stocked with everything you could imagine, really! If you plan on cooking, just get food, every imaginable spice, condiment, pots and pans, flatware, kitchen gadget etc. were there. The location is great for running all over the island during the day and hanging out at the volcano at night or just for relaxing all day if you want. The property owner stayed in contact with us before, during and after our stay answering all our questions and giving helpful advice. We would very much recommend staying here."

  • Ulu Niu - The Perfect Place!

    "We spent five nights at Ulu Niu and absolutely loved it. The semi-private beach, which feels more like your own private beach, is just steps away from the house and was perfect for morning and late afternoon swims. There were even beach towels, chairs and floats provided. The house was extremely clean, well stocked and exactly as the photos show it to be. We ate breakfast and dinner every day out on the lanai and it felt like we were at a resort. A beautiful house in a beautiful setting. Would definitely stay here again. You have to try the local food at Kaaloa’s Super Js in Captain Cook, south of Kona. Excellent pork lau lau with lomi lomi salmon, and a place you will not forget!"

Big Island Travel Tips

Hawaii is hands-down one of the most sought-after destinations in the U.S. There are eight main islands, and the largest and northernmost is called the Island of Hawaii -- better known as The Big Island -- to avoid confusing it with the rest of the state. It is a paradise filled with unparalleled natural wonders and all but two of the world’s climate zones, which serve as a home for a wealth of biodiversity. Come get your own slice of heaven on earth.

Kau

What’s a better sight to see than an active volcano spewing lava? Visit the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to see it for yourself. The Big Island is not only big, it’s still growing! Kilauea has been erupting since 1983. Situated 30 miles southwest of Hilo, it is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet. As a whole, the park boasts more than 150 miles of hiking trails through craters, rainforests, deserts and the volcanoes themselves. It is even considered a World Heritage Site. Amazingly, 250,000 to 650,000 cubic yards of lava are produced each day, which is enough to cover a road 20 miles long. Hurry, because no one knows when Kilauea will stop erupting! Catch this phenomenal natural event while supplies last! The visitor center is open from 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For the science behind it, take a walk through the Thomas A. Jaggar Museum for geologic displays, videos and maps. Besides the volcano, you and the family can explore Crater Rim Drive, an 11-mile scenic drive within the park.

Kohala Coast

Along the western edge you will find the black lava fields of the Kohala Coast. However, a little further south lies the yang to its ying, Hapuna Beach, which is bursting with Hawaii’s biggest white-sand beaches. Let’s put it this way: Hapuna has hit international top ten lists year after year. The landscape are pristine, and the vistas couldn’t get much better. At Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, you’ll discover lava rock carvings etched hundreds of years ago by native Hawaiians. No one is exactly sure what they mean, but it is generally thought that these carvings are records of birth and deaths from the ancient culture. There’s no better time than now, so treat yourself to luxury living as you can freshen up at top-tier spas to recharge and feel yourself again. Don’t forget to hit a round of golf on the world-class fairways and greens. Jack Nicklaus designed Hualalai Golf Course, while Robert Trent Jones Sr. had his hand at Mauna Kea Resort. Rest assured, you won’t go wrong.

Hamakua Coast

Hamakua Coast, on the eastern side, is famous for its waterfalls and riveting rainforest. Explore the heart-stopping Akaka Falls, where waters spill 442 feet through a gorge into the river below. You’ll be surrounded by bamboo, birds of paradise and huge ti plants along the way. The coast is ribbed with valleys and gulches that you’ll see during your drive at the Hamakua Heritage Corridor, a trip that passes rainforests and waterfalls alike. Unwind in 275 acres of beauty at the World Botanical Garden, home to the Umauma Falls, before you go zip-lining along vistas of the Pacific Ocean. It’s a perfect adventure for thrill-seekers young and old!

Hilo

You’ll be shouting “ahola” as you arrive in Hilo International Airport in this eastern region. The landscape brims with more rainforests and gardens than you will know what to do with. For science lovers, enjoy the amazing exhibits in the Pacific Museum and Imiloa Astronomy Center, Hilo’s newest top-notch attraction. To get a fresh bite to eat, pick out your favorite exotic fruit at Hilo Farmers Market, a knockout among locals. Cafe Pesto serves seafood caught the same day that will leave you and your family wowed.

Puna

Puna packs those black-sand beaches that Hawaii is known for. Tourists flock to Kalapana, a historic town destroyed by lava. Today, the site is the prime spot to see the lava reach the sea. A few miles away, you can see Keaau, where lands used to be covered in sugar canes. At the Lava Tree State Park, there are molds of trees that lava formed in the 1700s. Swim in pools heated by the volcanoes beside regions rich in tropical fruits and vegetation. Isaac Hale Beach Park provides one of the island’s most coveted surf spots, although swimming is not recommended due to the strong currents.

In Hawaii, you’ll leave with more than just a lei around your neck, you’ll come home with zip-line extravaganzas, volcano explosions and Pacific seafood dinners floating on your mind.
