About Owner, Denise Colgrove

I am a semi retired veterinarian. I went to intermediate school and High school in Hilo then to California to UC Berkeley and Davis where I got my DVM degree. I love to travel and have volunteered in South Africa and Uganda and Mexico. Hilo is my home.

Owner, Denise Colgrove purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Owner, Denise Colgrove chose Hilo District

I love the location of this property right in front of the park where I can walk out the door to go swimming. Plus there are only six houses at the moment in this little subdivision. With open land behind the house; 4 acres of greenery.

What makes this apartment unique

Lovely location, just steps to go swimming. Plus I am up high so have lovely views of the park and ocean.

Wonderful unique Hawaiian Island Experience!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a great time at this really unique home. It felt like living outside the wonderful lani's allowed the sites and sounds of the surf ,birds and frogs to convey a very tropical experience. A very clean and comfortable enviroment in an excellent location one lot off the beach. Delicious sea food restaurant near by and very close to Hilo town center. It was so much fun to go a few steps to the beach every morning and watch the turtles, look for whales and just enjoy being there! Would definitely recommend this unit it has a very good vibe and a non traditional enviroment. Really the Island good life!

Very nice and helpful management.
