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 Apartment 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 build 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 Apartment unique
This apartment is perfect for families. We love it because it is nice and cozy. The view out of the wonderful and special windows in the dinning area show hibiscus flowers in different colors and different fruit trees, also pineapples and taro.

Good location in Hilo
Property includes a separate entrance to a large unit with a well equipped kitchen, and also family room with TV and multiple bedrooms plus a washer and dryer. This is a residential area uphill from downtown Hilo so best if you have a rental car (shaded parking provided). This rental is ground level and it can get hot. I was not entirely comfortable leaving the windows open at night and only the bedroom windows had dowels that restricted opening of the windows, so I did not feel safe leaving all of the windows open at night. This appeared to be a safe neighborhood but I ended up using the fans to cool the space at night.
Had a great time in Hilo. The property was quiet and clean.
A good experience
Well equipped and as the information suggested in the write up on VRBO website. Host was very helpful and went out of their way to please us. Accomodation is very accessible o super markets, restaurants and other necessities for a short term stay. Full satisfaction and great value considering property is on the big island. of Hawaii
There were just two of us in the large space that could be comfortable for 5-6. There’s everything you need if you chose to cook meals, do laundry...Super clean and safe area. The host family are really special welcoming people. Good location to hit up Volcano National Park.
A Great Value with Great Hosts!
We loved our 2 week stay here! It is as advertised and more! It really is a great VALUE! The neighborhood is quiet and has very low traffic. My wife and I stayed here with my 90 year old mother and it was a great space. The apartment is completely furnished and equipped for a more extended stay. Ingrid and Amon are very friendly and very conscientious hosts. Upon arrival, the unit was super clean and neat. They met all of our need requests and voluntarily made fresh fruit available daily. My sense is that they will go overboard to make their guests feel comfortable. We did have a vehicle to get around with. The driveway is huge and the parking is great. Amon even placed "runway lights" for safe night time access. The entry is covered and very well protected so you don't get soaked trying to get in from the Hilo rain. This was our first stay here but this place will probably be our "Hilo home" from here on out.
