Guestbook comments from the manager

My son and I really enjoyed staying at this condo. The unit was so homey and comfortable. Aside from the location of the condo itself, you do a great job managing it ; your cleaning stuff does a topnotch job keeping the property super clean and well-stocked (and you almost never hear this from me, as I am extremely picky when it comes to "cleanness") ; the neighbors in the building I ran across were all nice and friendly (one of the ladies from the same floor even showed me where the recycle bin is when I was trying to figure out), and I only have one thing to say to you: thank you and we will definitely call you again should we decide to go back to Hilo for another vacation!

P.S. This email sounds like one of those corny reviews on a travel site, but I simply wanted to send you my personal words of appreciation :)

Everything we needed, convenient location, ocean park like surroundings, and the sounds of Hawaii. Night and day. Perfect

Well appointed unit was terrific base for our time in Hilo.

Thanks for sharing with us.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your response. We aim to make this the prime destination for an East side adventure. Real Hawaii. I assume you mean the gentle sounds of the blue pacific to lull you to relaxation. Come back again.

Comfortable, convenient, well appointed good view.

We enjoyed our stay here. We thought that the outside did not look very nice, but the inside of #504 was very nice. They provided a lot of extras to make things comfortable and fun. The view was not as good as was represented as a big tree blocked most of it. Overall I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: ALOHA AND MAHALO for your thoughts...the association is always doing work to improve the outside, and this condo development is next to the best swimming and snorkeling around. THE condo itself is clean and immaculate and comfortable and the tree outside varies from time of year. The condo does have a beautiful view and cutting the tree would be up to the County and it is a beautiful monkeypod tree I believe. IN any case, the photos ARE right from the condo and I can't say enough about Hilo, the condo and our Aina. PLEASE come back.

great place!

Wow, it's great to have views and be right on the ocean. The bedroom privacy is a little strange, but the blinds can be lowered from the top , which really helps.

Enjoyed to stay the condo

  • 4 of 5

We were happy to stay this condo for a few of days. It is on good location and have sea view. We can just walk a few steps to the seaside and swim in the sea to see lot of fishes and turtles.

One thing is really impression to me that is the owner prepared every thing you need to living there from the cooking wears to snorkelling gears. We didn't use them much but it is really convince for people to live there short time.

I like this place and would come back.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the condo. Furnishings are lovely. The view is great. The kitchen is extremely well equipped so if you want to cook this is a good place for you. We had some questions for Terry and she answered them very very promptly. She also gave us some suggestions for places to visit. If we were going to spend time in Hilo again we would certainly consider staying here again.
