About Ingrid & Amon Faltstrom

We are a family of four. We have a daughter and a son. The house owner is born and raised here on the Big Island. His wife is from Germany.

Ingrid & Amon Faltstrom purchased this studio in 1984

Why Ingrid & Amon Faltstrom chose Hilo

This house is now 30 years owned by the family. It is passed on through the generations of the house owners family. The house itself is an old Plantation house style building. This means it is the old style they builded houses here on the island 50 years ago. In the last year the house underwent major renovations and rebuilding to make it much nicer and also a little bid bigger. The location is a nice, secure and quiet neighborhood on the golf driving range. That makes this house and location as a vacation rental quite unique.

What makes this studio unique

We fell in love with the nice, big and airy studio. The view from its patio out over the yard, the golf course, and out the ocean.

Wonderful stay in beautiful studio!

  • 5 of 5

Ingrid and Amon were fantastic hosts. They attended to all our requests immediately and were always friendly. As a bonus, their son Keawe, was the perfect, polite little host too.

The studio was beautifully decorated and very clean and had a spacious lanai overlooking a huge backyard. We wished we had more time to enjoy the accommodations. The fully stocked kitchen made meal preparation easy and helped us save a lot of money on food.

Conveniently located, within minutes of every place we needed to go, we minimized travel time and maximized enjoying Hilo.

We highly recommend this property and will definitely stay with Ingrid and Amon on our next visit to Hilo!

A Real Gem and a Great Value

  • 5 of 5

We only have good things to say about this studio space. It is spacious, light-filled, and airy, with a large inviting lanai. Pleasantly appointed with comfortable furniture. The kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals and eating in. Comfortable bed. Great shower. The owners are friendly, generous, and genuine, with two sweet children. The home grown papayas and fresh jaboticaba juice they shared were special treats! This is a great base for visiting Volcanos National Park and all things Hilo, but the rest of the Island is also quite accessible from here. We stayed a week and traveled to the Kona side three different times via three different routes, experiencing the varied landscapes, climate zones, and small towns on the Island. This turned out to be the perfect place for us to stay. We give our hosts and this apartment high praise and our whole-hearted rcommendation.

Excellent place to stay and relax

  • 5 of 5

The studio apartment is well maintained and has plenty of room. The lanai is large and allows you to view the many types of fruit/nut trees (Papaya, banana, macadamia nut, lychee, and jabuticaba.

Amon and Ingrid are easy to talk to and had plenty of suggestions of places to visit and to eat at.

We highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a place to stay in Hilo.

We hope to see them again next year.

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The rental in Hilo owned by Ingrd and Amon was great. Of the 5 rentals on two islands we rented this year, this was one of our favorites. Very clean, spacious, all amenities, a big lanai, nice view , wifi, and the friendliest owners by far. And they share the fruit from their garden!

Hilo was one of our favorite places for several reasons. It is not touristy as some of the other places, people seem very nice whereever you go, lots of attractions that are nature based.

The tropical botanical garden and the Akaka Falls, the Rainbow falls and the tropical zoo may not be headline attractions, but very attractive. The beaches on the southside were very nice as well. The Farmers Market in Hilo on Saturday was very interesting. We saw veggies and fruits we had never seen before. The Rombutons are delicious even though they look like sea urchins.

We did not try many restaurants since cooking at this rental is very easy and pleasant. Did I mention clean?

Try this one, you will not be disappointed !

Beautiful and spacious studio apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming studio apartment on a quiet street just minutes from downtown and the beaches. The owners are gracious, accommodating and friendly. This is the home away from home that I was looking for to use as a base to settle my daughter into the University of Hawai'i which is just down the street. The studio is clean and well maintained. I recommend it to anyone looking for a home atmosphere for their Big Island vacation.
