The host was really really nice. Our flight was delayed, so we arrived at the house at 9:10pm!!!! The host was here, and kindly gave us a quick intro about the house. We stayed for five nights, 8adults. The house is spacious, new, and nice. Swimming pool is nice as well. We also got free papayas. Super like this place, will definitely stay here again!

Excellent Value--some stuff needs fixing

  • 4 of 5

For the price, we were amazed with what was provided; I wouldn't have expected such a nice accommodation right by Hilo. The house was furnished in an older style with a modern touch of technology. We were there for our wedding and we spent more time preparing than enjoying the amenities. However, some stuff needs to be fixed. We were notified at the beginning that the outdoor jacuzzi could not heat water--which is okay. However the jets for the jacuzzi nor the outdoor pool lights could be accessed behind the locked door of the pump house. The kitchen was... epic. But the center broiler had issues since it would lock the igniters of the 2 left burners (lock them on). Additionally, the stove and other things needed to be scrubbed down since they were obviously not cleaned since their last use. Finally, over at the master bathroom, there was a very nice whirlpool tub... which didn't work at all. There wasn't any question of how to use it, it was just inoperable. I guess I should also mention that the Finnish Sauna has issues with the timer switch, but that was negligible.

Regardless of all this, the house was a great find and rental. We'd love to stay again in fact... just hope some of that stuff could be fixed!

To start with this is a beautiful property in the hills overlooking Hilo Bay, close to town, peaceful and quiet. The pool and outside lanai is where we spent most of our time even though the weather wasn't very good. The downside of this review is the response rate and not getting accurate information from the PM. Before we arrived we had to adjust our reservation and it took two weeks to get any answer to my e-mails and phone messages. This was so frustrating wondering what was going on. When we arrived we were told check in was at 3, Nicole couldn't meet us but gave us the codes to get in. When we got to the property the cleaning crew was still there and told us they wouldn't be done until 4:30. We had to be somewhere at 5 that night and had hoped to get settled in. Then we come to find out the washing machine, microwave and master ceiling fan don't work. We already knew the ice maker, sauna and hot tub didn't work. We had two small children with us so not to have a washing machine and dishwasher was a disappointment. Then we had to buy toilet paper, paper towels and pillowcases because there weren't enough for our stay. We told PM about toilet paper and she said she would get us some but we never heard or saw her after that. When we left I asked about when our deposit would be refunded and she said in a few days. Three weeks later we hadn't seen anything after no response to many texts and phone messages. We had to call VRBO and our credit card company to work this out. This could have been a much better review if a little more attention to detail in the amenities was addressed and the communication was better. I hope in the future the PM works on some of these issues and it will make the visitors stay so much more enjoyable and stress free.
