Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our daughter to the University of Hawaii at Hilo and stayed at the Arecas for 8 nights. I couldn't have asked for anywhere better to stay. Paula's hospitality was top notch and everything was clean and neat. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are ever in Hilo.

Quite & comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Jet lagged and grumpy I found it difficult to find the first time. However, once we got there it was like coming home (minus our cats!). The kitchen was equipped with everything we could need. The bed was comfortable. The shower heavenly. I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful backyard and practiced my yoga out on the back step with the birds chirping. We enjoyed having our coffee and breakfast in the lanai. Our only regret is we didn't stay longer!

A Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place! Clean, quiet, very comfortable place that had little touches of home. We loved running around, then "going home" for the night. Since it rains a lot in Hilo, they also provide umbrellas to use!

Clean and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We happened to visit during a winter storm But that didn't stop us from visiting the local sights. He even provided us with extra umbrellas. The home was clean, spacious and well equipped. If staying in the winter months make sure to bring warm clothing all the same.

"The Arecas," Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and a girlfriend found The Arecas to be comfortable and relaxing after a day out sightseeing.

The bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen is well equipped, the living area is uncluttered and clean.

The windows and doors are double glazed and when closed they keep the sounds of the coquis at a minimum.

It is an easy drive to downtown Hilo.

A perfect home away from home.

Thank you, Paula.

Oasis of comfort and beauty

  • 4 of 5

What a lovely find! this was a last minute rental, because an existing spot fell through and Paula responded immediately. It was a few miles up from Hilo, situated in a lovely, private area with very, very comfortable beds. Internet, clean home, easy access to downtown Hilo and simple. No fancy tech, but who wants that when you have the sound of rain, cochis and the calling of the forest, the sea and the volcanoes. My brother said he couldn't believe how comfy the bed was...which is a pretty important for a light sleeper.

The price point was great as well. Thank you for saying yes to our request.
