This is an ohana studio attached but separate from our home. It does not have an ocean view.

Lovely rental in great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful and unique rental. Unfortunately it rained heavily the entire time we were in Hilo which made it difficult to take advantage of the wonderful observation deck or the beach. Marie and Greg couldn't have been nicer hosts, however, and actually offered us the use of their umbrellas and ponchos, so the rain didn't stop us from doing everything we wanted to do! We are cat lovers, and their cats were so friendly they immediately made us feel right at home. We would recommend this rental to anyone visiting Hilo who is looking for a nicely decorated, comfortable, clean and convenient location to spend their vacation. This was a great find!

Great surf lookout over Honolii!

We had a wonderful time staying at Marie and Greg's place! They are very accommodating hosts and lent us some spices to use to cook our fish dinner. The place is close to Hilo in a nice quiet neighborhood. Would definitely stay here again! Mahalo!

Great Find!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Hawaii. We decided to stay in Hilo as it was central to the things we wanted to do and see (we are more the explorer type than the organized tour type). I don't think we could have picked a better place to stay. Location was perfect, just north of Hilo. It is an apartment/in-law-suite on the back side of the main house. We had plenty of privacy. We had everything we needed in the apartment (they even had fresh milk ready for us! Perfect for our morning coffee/cereal since we got in late!). We had access to the deck, grill, and observation deck. The view from the observation deck was great for a home-cooked dinner and fresh pineapple. They have 2 super-chill pups that were great company and the sweetest cats I have ever met. We really couldn't have been happier with our experience and we hope to visit again!

Immediately felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly lovely stay here. The home is on gorgeously landscaped property, the unit is charming and spacious and we fell soundly asleep to a chorus of coqui frogs each night. Our favorite spot was up on the observation deck, relaxing with coffee and enjoying sweeping views from the surfers just below to nearby downtown Hilo. My overall favorite experiences onsite were spending time with the kitties and pups; the pets just made it feel even more like home. (And you're not supposed to choose favorites, but the sweet, silly orange kitty stole my heart.) This was a very well-situated and friendly home base for exploring both Hilo and the island at large and I'm so thankful we chose this place - we would definitely stay here again! Thanks, Marie and Greg!
