My 45 years as a resident and 41 years as a Realtor here will insure you know where to go and what to do to make it totally memorable. 1brm 1bth with queen size bed in brm. plus sofa sleeper in living room for 3rd guest. Full Kitchen, wifi, this condo has it all. Carlsmith Beach Park right next door is the best for swimming and snorkeling. Almost always sea turtles. EZ access to ocean, protected reef. Beautiful lawn with huge trees, Tide pools. Truly one of the finer spots on any of the Islands.

Hilo Town is a very special place. Not touristy like Honolulu, Maui and such, a real old Hawaii charm. Right now lava is flowing into the ocean, a sight to behold. Lava tours can be had. You will come back again and again.

Ever seen a Sea Turtle? This was a first for me, but what a delight the turtles were. The condo was tastefully decorated, the bed was comfortable, and the park is beautiful. Also, there was an interesting collection of books in the condo, and the Association has a library. Mahalo.

Great Little Hilo Condo!

  • 4 of 5

This place is conviently located in South Hilo- close to parks, resturants, and the Volcano! Although the building could use some work, the unit is nicely decorated and appointed with all the conviences you need for a Hawaii vacation. I would hightly recommend staying here if Hilo is in your plans.

Owner's Response: Although the exterior of the ML shores perhaps need a new coat of paint (which the assoc. is clearly aware of and addressing), the INTERIOR of the units I handle are BEAUTIFUL, immaculate and updated, everything you need. The beach park next door (carlsmith) is worth the price of admission as is a wonder of our islands and nature, totally awesome. The owners want you to enjoy our Paradise as they did and do and became proud owners of the unit and come back several times a year to enjoy all we have here.

Great overall value and beautiful ocean views from Master or balcony. Swim with sea turtles.

  • 4 of 5

Great value given the price. Clean, comfortable, safe and quiet. Take elevator down to lagoon full of green sea turtles to swim along side. I recommend buying a "rash guard", which is an insulated shirt to keep you somewhat warm. I was surprised to find that the water was probably 65 degrees...colder then most swimming pools. If you have kids I recommend buying/renting (1)flexible booties with gripping material to protect feet and allow for safe passage on top of sharp volcanic rock (2)kid-size snorkeling set.

In terms of sights to see, go to (1)Botanical Gardens in Hilo (2)HI Volcano Nat'l Park. Cost is $25/car and it's good for your entire stay (just show receipt). Here you can see an active volcano.

Don't waste your money going to the town of Kalapana to view lava won't see much and it requires $25 plus you have to hike 4 miles round trip.

Owner's Response: Mahalo and thanks for your input. IT is the cooler time of the year, so the ocean most likely warms up later in the year. NO one has ever mentioned the water being cold, that is a first :) Good suggestions. Come back again. Terry (R)
