Hilo Visit June 29

  • 4 of 5

We were in Hilo to visit our family and The Arecas was the perfect location for us and two adult sons. It was close to downtown and Paula had a binder with menus from several local restaurants and a few of my favorite places were included. We used the enclosed "lanai" to enjoy the quiet mornings and read a book/plan our day. Paula was close by and could answer any question that we had.

We would definitely stay here again.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in The Arecas for three nights and it perfectly met all of our needs. Paula was great to work with and you can tell the property is well cared for by the owners. The Arecas is attached to the owner's home in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. The space is super clean, really comfortable beds, and very spacious bedrooms. The house has a great breeze when you open the windows and is just very peaceful. We liked the reserved parking spot. The screened porch with the dinning table worked great as we listened to the nightly symphony of wildlife. Washing machine and dryer are right outside the space with everything you need. The kitchen has all the basic cooking utensils. Paula was very friendly and was great in offering tips to our stay. We really enjoyed going up to Mauna Kea vistor center and watching the stars. Great value, great property.
