About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay4 - 7 nights
This unit is conveniently located to downtown Hilo within walking distance to restaurants and shops. The unit is in a small apartment complex with only six units. This is the only unit rented on a short-term basis so if you're looking for that "actually living there" feel, then this is the place for you! The unit includes a full kitchen, albeit a small size oven/range, a full bath and a loft. It is an end unit on the second floor with lots of windows to enjoy the refreshing Hilo breeze! Since this is a quiet, small complex, we ask our guests to please be considerate of others and keep noise to a minimum after 9pm.
Guests can self check-in with keypad entry. Door codes are changed after each guest and the new code will be provided to you the morning of your check-in day. There is high-speed internet with wifi access for guest use. Guests are also welcome to use the provided beach gear, boogie boards, snorkel gear & towels. There is also a shared coin-operated laundry room on-site. A laundry starter kit will be provided for all guests.
With self check-in available our interaction amount is completely up to you. We like to provide recommendations of our favorite spots to see and eat and will have a list waiting for you upon your arrival. Other than that, we hope you reach out to us with any questions you have!
There are so many things to see and adventures to be had on the Big Island that we recommend our guests rent a car so they can see all the sights at their convenience! There is an assigned parking spot for this unit so parking won't be an issue. If you're looking for a more relaxed vacation then most of Hilo town is within walking distance and you could enjoy your time without a car as well.

We moved to Big Island in 2012 and love the Hilo side of the Island. My husband and I both work here locally and manage the property ourselves. You may even see us around a time or two doing yard work or maintenance! We love kayak sailing, snorkeling, hiking, paddle boarding and recently have taken up mountain biking which has proven difficult but fun! Mountain biking over lava rock is definitely a challenge!
Renee purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why Renee chose Hilo
We really feel Hilo is Hawaii's best kept secret, it's surrounded by ocean and Mountain so has plenty of land and sea activities and lots of history to the town. We love the convenience of shops & restaurants while enjoying the quiet atmosphere of the town.
What makes this Apartment unique
Hilo is a good location to stay for exploring all of Big Island and still close to shops, restaurants and essentials too! We truly hope you enjoy your stay! Aloha.

Cute with all the accessories
We had a great time at this condo. It was equipped with everything we needed, the kitchen especially. It was centrally located and allowed us to explore most of the island. Would definitely stay again!
Perfect home away from home
We loved our stay in the Hilo apartment. Renee was easy to communicate with. The apartment was in a great location. It was quiet but an easy walk to the market and little shops in town. The apartment had great vibes. It had everything we needed to feel at home. We appreciated having spices, snorkel gear, beach towels, a cooler, grocery bags, and everything you could think of to make your trip perfect. The bed was comfortable. There isn't A/C but we were at a perfect temperature with the windows and ceiling fans. We were greeted with a basket of treats which was appreciated for our 2am arrival. We loved everything about Hilo. It is an easy drive to the volcano, valleys, tide pools and so much more. It felt very organic. Overall, we had a lovely stay and would highly recommend the apartment to a couple looking for a charming getaway.
The property was quaint and perfect for our stay!
We felt like we were in a tree house in the jungle with all the windows in the kitchen looking out over the beautiful landscape. The location was perfect too, close enough to everything we wanted to do on the Hilo side. The ammenities in the bathroom and kitchen were perfect - spices, water pitcher, aloe, coffee etc. I’d definitely stay here again!
Well appointed apartment close to downtown Hilo
5 Star experience!
Beautiful apartment in a great location
We absolutely loved our stay at this apartment. It was clean, well-kept, and easy to get to and from. My fiance broke his foot a couple of weeks before our vacation so we were a little limited in what we could do, but this location seemed to be close to many activities. We went to Volcanoes National Park during the day and at night to see Kileau Crater (we even got engaged there!), stargazed at Mauna Kea (a must do), and got massages at Spa Vive (just a block away). Hilo is much more laid-back than Kona, and we loved that about it.
Thank you Renee for opening up your beautiful unit to us. We can't wait to come back!
Quiet, relaxing, beautiful loft. We loved the frogs!
Imagine the perfect place, the perfect welcome basket, and all the right amenities. The WiFi was fast and actually worked, everything from the soaps and granola to the snorkeling flippers was much appreciated. We loved every minute of our stay here and would definitely book again!
René really has a great place here. We felt lucky to have found it. Make sure to check out Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill while there, it's only a ten minute walk through paradise away and has amazing food and drinks and fantastic service. We also checked out loads of awesome nearby sight-seeing suggestions provided by René, like Rainbow Falls and the Boiling Pots, the Volcanic pool and the INCREDIBLE Kapoho tide pools too. This place was close to everything and easy to get to and from.
With all the window screens and the fans, sleeping here was a breezy dream surrounded by the relaxing chirps of the coqui frogs and Hawaiian crickets, no AC needed or desired!
I could keep going. I wish I was still there.
