Loved Our Stay at The Arecas!

  • 5 of 5

It was so nice to have a home to relax in after a day of sight seeing. The apartment is so spacious, clean, and comfy. The yard is gorgeous. It was nice to have beach blankets and towels provided for our use. Access to laundry facilities was great. Thank you Paula and Jeremy!! This was our first experience with a VRBO. You've set the bar extremely high! If we are ever back to the Big Island, I would not stay anywhere else. Thank you!

Can't Get Any Better ThanThis

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our second visit to Arecas and we love it as much this year as we did last. It is located in a very nice neighbor and is extremely quiet. Paula has done a wonderful job making the place feel homey and is very nicely decorated. It is very clean and contains every thing you need to make your vacation complete. It is great to use as a home base while exploring the east side of the island or as a place to just sit back and relax. We plan to go back again next year. Love the landscaping and property.

Great host.

  • 4 of 5

Paula was a great host. The place was as pictured. The house had no air conditioning and it’s super humid in Hilo so it was a bit damp.

Owner's Response: Aloha Nancy, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Unfortunately, we experienced heavy rainfall for the duration of your stay. Let's hope the weather is more cooperative on your next visit to Hilo. Mahalo, Paula

  • 5 of 5

close to hilo, up the mountain in a beautiful garden sits the guest house of paula and jeremy.

we came 2 years ago and this time of course it must also be the arecas!

everything paula writes about the house is true and even better. a wonderfully equipped kitchen, the softest beds, quiet, cool and beautiful, private and friendly and I could go on and on!

thank you so much, paula and jeremy, we spent wonderful days at your house and will be back for sure!

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely and comfortable setting for our Hilo visit! The Holbrooks keep the surroundings spotless and make sure all is well with their guests. The kitchen is very well-equipped, the bed is very comfortable, and the lush vegetation in the backyard is lovely. We’ve visited Hilo a number of times, and this first visit to “The Arecas” makes it our first choice for future lodging here.
