Beautiful and unique experience. Loved it!! We will be back! Please read the details below

What a lovely experience!  The “wildlife” on the property was magical--chickens, ducks, geese--all of whom blessed us with fresh eggs. Want to make it clear that these were the owner’s son’s pets. What a lucky young man to grow up in this manner.   I don’t know that I’ve ever had a fresh duck or goose egg and want to return for more.  We could look out from the lanai balcony which overlooked a lovely property and large pond.  The ducks and geese were enjoying the water as much as we were just watching them.  We especially enjoyed cooking our meals in the beautiful and well-equipped kitchen.  The interior has a lovely and unique floor plan which made the home feel extra large and roomy.  A large washer and dryer enabled us to wash our clothes along the way which is especially nice so we didn’t have to bring home dirty clothes in our luggage.  The shower in the master bedroom and the jacuzzi in the second bathroom were DIVINE!  Well appointed bathrooms are something we enjoy when traveling and these did not disappoint.  The location was perfect, too!  Very close to the airport without being next to the airport and a short 5-10 minute drive into Hilo for groceries, restaurants, etc.  Hilo’s Saturday morning Farmer’s Market is worth the trip alone and we found many fruits and veggies not found in our Farmer’s Markets on Oahu.  We will return and look forward to the opportunity. The stay felt like we were in the country with all the amenities of a lovely hotel.  Forgot to mention being lulled to sleep by little coqui frogs serenading us. Thank you Mike and Nataliya for your hospitality--we’ll be back.  Mahalo!

Not so quiet retreat.

  • 3 of 5

This property did not meet our expectations. From the pictures and description we were expecting a quiet retreat. The "pond" side of the property is lovely however what you don't see is that it is on a very busy street with lots of traffic addition to the noise of parrots, geese, roosters and frogs on the property (which were louder than we had anticipated so be prepared). The accommodations themselves are roomy but many of the furnishings/linens & towels/kitchen supplies have seen better days and are in need of updating or replacement. Overall the suite is in need of a good cleaning and general repairs (e.g., missing screen in one bathroom window and a hole in one of the bedroom window screens). Small black flies were a problem in the kitchen.....anything open had to be stored in the fridge (put an open box of cereal in the pantry only to find flies in it the next morning.....the next box went into the fridge!!). Note that the "hot tub" is in fact a bath tub with Jacuzzi jets (we did not use this). Also the "outdoor grill" is an old briquette style grill (not a gas barbecue).

The plus side to this property is the location. Very easy access to many great oceanfront parks just down the street (easy walking distance to two of them). Also a good central location for exploring the Hilo area and Volcanoes National Park (40 minute drive).

Three Days in Hilo

  • 4 of 5

The unit is very nice, with a very pleasant garden area and well located to a nice beach. It is a little far from the downtown Hilo area but an easy drive. The unit is modern will all the amenities we could ask for. We were the only folks in the unit at the time so we had the entire unit to ourselves, a real luxury. The owners are friendly and welcoming people who did all they could to make our stay a great one. The roosters crowing in them morning was a surprise at first, but soon became a part of the pleasant ambiance. The unit is reasonably priced - we will stay there again.

Lovely home close to many activities

We loved staying here. The home was beautiful and in the perfect location for day trips to the volcano and other parts of the island. The restaurants in the area were outstanding!
