2 Bedroom 2 Bath Cottage right across the beach!
Charming beach cottage with commanding ocean view of the best beach on the east side of Hawaii! Waiuli (Richardsons Beach) is the best for swimming, surfing, and snorkeling. What's the best thing about it? It's right across the street! Grab a mask and snorkel (there's plenty of fun beach gear at the house to use!) and go explore the cove! Wish to just relax and lay in the shade? There's a great area behind the house to hang out or bbq while watching the ocean. Perfect for families, groups or a nice couple get-away!

Perfect location for Richardson Beach - aka Turtle Rest Area! Perfect for 2 couples! Everything you’d need. Comfy beds and peepers that sing you to sleep. Weather wasn’t perfect - but stay was. Thanks.
Great location, lovely beach vibes
A well located, well equipped and comfortable holiday accommodation for our three night stay in Hilo. Lots of rain could not dampen our enjoyment of the Waiuli Beach cottage. We saw many turtles directly across the road and relished the ease of access to Richardsons Beach and the snorkelling.
I love this house!
This is a quaint, beautiful Hilo house. We had a wonderful vacation here. From the relaxing front porch overlooking the ocean to the beautiful and private lush landscape of the back yard, I was outside more than indoors. Clean and comfortable, just lovely. I would recommend this house and can't wait to visit again!
Spacious and great location
The family loved the location and being right across from the beach. The downstairs room is totally seperate so would work well for two couples. Enjoyed our time there!
Absolutely Amazing! We loved the charm of the house. It was just perfect for my family. I loved how helpful everyone was. I loved that the beach is across the street. We enjoyed every minute of it! Thank You

Very nice cottage and great location
We stayed with our three school-aged kids for 2 nights at the end of June. The cottage has a charming decor and is well-stocked and very clean. The dish rack should be bigger since it doesn't have a dishwasher. We ended up not visiting other beaches because Richardson's was so convenient across the street and a good swimming beach for the kids. It's a black sand beach, and we saw many turtles, too. The outside shower was a big plus so we didn't track sand into the cottage. The major downside was no a/c. With the humidity, the upstairs was too uncomfortable for us to sleep, even with all the windows open and ceiling fans running. The downstairs with a window a/c was a huge relief, and we slept and showered in the lower level. There was a futon and mats in addition to one bed in the lower level. The screened in porch was with wonderful for our morning coffee and waiting out daily rain showers. The other major drawback was I discovered many ants on the floor and countertop the morning of our departure. We kept the countertops clean, but it seemed the smallest crumb brought out the ants. We would stay at this unit again.
Perfect for beach lounging and swimming. Lots of fish and marine life to see, including sea turtles right across the street at Richardson's Ocean Beach Park. Recommended activities to see on Hawai'i island: Hawaii Volcanoes Nation Park, Rainbow Falls Waterfall, Hilo Farmers Market on Wednesday and Saturdays, Swimming and surfing at Richardson's Beach!
