Nice condo, nice view

  • 4 of 5

Nice location for snorkeling or driving to the volcano. Owner was easy to work with, not a lot of extra rules or chores to deal with. Central location. We did a "friends of the volcano" lava tube hike, was fun, have to sign up in advance. Richardson beach was good to snorkel at just down the road. Other people in the condo were friendly and helpful.


washer & dryer is coin and shared with the 7th floor, we had to wait sometimes but got clothes washed when we wanted.

Master bed is up high so you look right out the window, nice view.

check out is at 10AM so be aware or negotiate

Great view

Loved the view. Visited the turtles every morning. Condo had everything we might need. We explored the waterfalls and attempted to hike to the flowing lava. We would definitely stay here again

Watching a whale from my bed

  • 5 of 5

This property is all about the amazing view and location. The views from the lanai and master bedroom are beautiful. My favorite was sitting on the bed in the master bedroom looking out. The bed is raised so you get a clear view. I got to watch a whale in the bay repeatedly lift up and slap its tail. It was really neat.

The condo is right next door to a beach area so it is easy to just walk next door when you want to go over. From the room it is also fun to watch the people snorkeling and boogie boarding.

We enjoyed our stay in Hilo. Great having the park next door for a quick swim after a busy day. Location worked well for us with good access to all amenities and central for exploring the Hilo side of the island. Condo was comfortable and definitely served our purpose. Thanks
