About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to Hilo for the weekend to visit my mom before we move back to the mainland. When we walked into the house we were very happy. My wife said I could live here. It was reasonably priced and while the outside of the house is dated the inside was very clean and comfortable. It looked exactly as the pictures depicted and the location was awesome.

Appreciate owner's understanding re: late checkout due to problems and stalled rental vehicle which delayed our return time to check out. It was stressful and van had to be towed after it stalled. Mahalo!!

Comfortable Accommodation and Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed our stay at this wonderful and comfortable cottage. It has lots of space for us to unwind after our outings in our car the whole day. Airy and comfortable, the cottage was also quiet for a good night's sleep. The location is very convenient to do takeout or a quick meal. Thank you Val, for sharing your cottage with us.
