Tranquil Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mikes place for Thanksgiving and had such a wonderful vacation! The rooms were cool and comfortable, spacious and very soothing as you could hear the waves crashing on the rocks from the beach down the road! I would definitely recommend this property to another family as when we visit Hilo again, I would probably request this home a 2nd time. The home was fully stocked up with everything you could imagine!! Not too mention its extremely affordable for what your getting! Much Mahalo Mike for making our vacation & thanksgiving a great one!

Lovely Neighborhood and Extremely Well Kept Property

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo for such a fantastic place Mike! Not only is this home in a great location, it is so beautifully renovated and well kept. And so affordable! The neighborhood is so lovely and so are all the people we encountered. It was so nice to feel welcome and see all the people out walking their dogs in the mornings. And of course to watch the daily gaggle of chickens! The house is very well stocked with everything you could imagine or need. We have stayed in a few different places that were lacking in supplies, where we have had to go buy things to cook with. But not here! So thank you for thinking of all those extra little a coffee grinder! Amazing in the land of coffee, how many places do not have one of those! Hahah! We enjoyed sitting on the lanai at night, listening to the coqui frogs singing their songs. There was always a nice cool breeze that would come through from the ocean. We enjoyed the fact that we were a block away from the water. You could hear the waves and smell the salt air. This property only has one thing wrong with it......I don't own it!!! So if you are ever wanting to sell this place me! I could live here in a heartbeat! So again....Mahalo for such a great place! Loved the décor....loved the comfort....loved the atmosphere....and we will DEFINITELY return!

The property was exactly as described by VRBO! It was in a great location - beach and neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

5 Starz!!!!! This was a great house in a great location - located in a friendly neighborhood and steps away fro the beach coastline - quiet, safe and beautiful Hawaiian foilage. The house was extremely clean, organized, and well stocked for all occasions (even a power failure!). The owner was most helpful and interested in our stay and comfort (family of 5). I would recommend for all with up to 6. Hilo town is about 30 minutes from the house and all sight visits less than 1 hour. We will be back!!

Perfect stay! Better than any hotel!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a wonderful house, so much about it was great!

It's located in a very quiet area where even the neighbors wave to you! It's extremely quiet and peaceful (except for the coqui frogs...they do take a bit of getting used to!) Here's a tip: if you are sleeping in the master bedroom, shut the bedroom windows and pull the curtains closed AND shut the bathroom door when you go to bed. This makes the world of difference! Honestly, at the end of our vacation we had gone to the Kona side of the island and missed the coqui's!

Anyway, the house is set up great. The kitchen maximized space and was set up with just about everything you could possibly need, including spices, foil/ziploc's, dishwashing pods, coffee filters, etc. The laundry was also set up with detergent, and the bathrooms had shampoo/conditioner and a hair dryer. We had all the comforts of home, to be quite honest! We had great wi-fi connection, so we were able to still work while on our vacation. We honestly couldn't be happier with our visit! Thank you for maintaining such a nice place for your guests. We truly made ourselves at home and will likely book here again!
