My husband and I travel frequently between Hilo and Oahu. I manage a community center in the town I grew up in and my husband manages the publication department for the local newspaper. We enjoy bodysurfing, ziplining, picnic bbqs, hanging out with our dogs and trying new foods. We're friendly and easy to get along with so please don't hesitate to ask questions if you want recommendations or if there's something that we can address during your stay. We're grateful for the opportunity to host you during your Hawaii island vacation.

Good value for stand-alone house with quiet privacy.
Location made travel easy, neighborhood was quiet (except for the nightly coqui frogs chirping, which are ubiquitous in Hilo). Our family appreciated the two bedrooms and large living room to relax after daily outings and kitchen and laundry appliances also made visit comfortable and homey.
Nice place to stay in Hilo
I thought the cottage was nice. We stayed one night and it was comfortable. The cottage was clean, roomy for four adults and centrally located in Hilo. TV worked well.
Great cottage, just what we needed for our stay.
Located near downtown with fast access to roads to other areas of the island. Clean and well kept.
Might be good for a group of 4 or 5 that want a pretty cheap place to stay
Little 2 bedroom house in a nondescript part of town.
The house was clean enough but the bed was not very comfortable.
Perfectly located for the budget conscious traveler
Valzey has the perfect location for someone who wants to visit Hilo on a budget. What I loved about the accommodation:
a. Within 2 miles of Coconut Island to see sunrise, Big Island Candies, Walmart, Indian restaurant Kamana's Kitchen, Hilo's Farmer Market and the airport!
b. She stacked up the place with paper products etc and soap like dishwashing soap so we did not have to run to a grocery store within 2 minutes of getting there
c. Great wifi connection for me and my family with wife and 2 children. I work and travel so it is a big plus.
d. clean and well-maintained place, enough towels etc
e. Covered car parking
Cozy and comfy cottage
We enjoyed the Ohana Cottage. This was our first family trip in such a long time. The cottage was well stocked. Very surprised with how much room there is. The ceiling fan, floor fans, and the trade winds made the cottage nice and cool during our stay. Thank you so much!
