Just what was needed

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay in or around Hilo and this was the perfect spot for us! Just out of town to the north and could be downtown in less than 5 min. They had a very nice observation area facing east where you could overlook Hilo bay and a local black sand surfing beach. We missed sun rises because of clouds the days we were there, but was interesting to watch a cruse ship pull into port one morning and all the surfers on the water.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! Marie provided everything we needed. Their lovely home is across the street from the water. Beautiful views from the upper deck. We loved all the beautiful flowers in their yard and meeting their friendly cats and dogs. Home was very clean and included covered parking. Would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Hilo! Thanks again!

Great View

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. It was quiet and clean. Owner provided extras such as use of laundry room and even had shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the shower. The tower overlook to the ocean view was wonderful and we spent a view mornings and evenings here. We would definitely stay here again!

Great stay, friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

Quaint little cottage. Fell asleep to a chorus of cochi frogs each evening. The observation deck is fantastic for watching sunrise and the surfers beach. We enjoyed our stay.

Great spot just outside Hilo

  • 4 of 5

What an amazing spot! The beautiful, lush well-maintained property overlooks Honoli'i beach. Minutes to downtown Hilo but the feel is outside of town. Neighborhood is quiet and feels safe. Super relaxing Hawaii style one would expect.

Marie and Greg are warm and wonderful hosts...leave you to yourself but available and welcoming if you need anything. We were travelling with our 20-month old and they setup a crib and supplied toys. They were so sweet.

The rental would be a comparable to a spacious hotel room. It is a mother/daughter type studio apartment located on the street side of the main house . Room was clean top to bottom. There is a bit of a musty odor but this is Hilo after all (although it didn't rain during our stay!).

Waiting to return!
