  • A Friendly Home

    "I spent one full month in Halekepani House and I enjoyed it immensely. It is vast and comfortable, designed by people who wanted to live in it. You can tell from many details. Bedrooms have their own patio, with the biggest one suitable for outdoor dining and accessible also from the kitchen. The garden goes all around the property. The furniture meets so well with the spirit of the house, which then hosts all the tools, books, ornaments as collected in a lifetime, so you feel you are living in some close friend's house who is temporarily abroad. And very friendly are indeed the owners, Julie and Samuel, who live in another house just across the street. The street and the whole area is very peaceful, no through traffic, no disturbing noise, just bird calls … I wish I could return anytime soon in Halekepani."

  • Great location for exploring the east side

    "Marie is a wonderful owner and could not be more generous or helpful. We were a group of three adults and even though it's a studio with one bathroom it worked fine for us! They have done a wonderful job landscaping and it really feels like paradise. I would absolutely recommend, especially if you are planning to do a lot of day trips. We basically made breakfast then took off for the day and then returned to make dinner and watch the sunset from the observation tower. Wonderful!"

  • A tranquil stay in a lychee farm

    "We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Hulili farm cottage. We loved the "swing bed" overlooking the pacific ocean. My daughter slept on this bed every night. The property was clean and the location was very serene and tranquil. It is about 20 minutes from Hilo. The owner, Madeleine, was accommodating and welcoming. She showed us around their farm in a golf cart where we picked some lychees and limes. We were also greeted by their dog, Kai, every time we drove into their place. We would definitely like to return to enjoy more of the views and lychees. Carol, Kai and Ji"

  • Astonding View Of Hilo BAY

    "My wife and I stayed in this house in Hilo for two week from mid February to the beginning of March 2016. The property sits on the protected side of Hilo bay about 100 yards from the cruise ship and freight ship pier. While we were there, a cruise ship passed within a few yards of property; close enough to wave to the passengers on the upper deck. The view from the back yard into the bay is relaxing and pleasant. This is also the view seen from inside the living areas of the home because of the homes' unique open design. Facing the bay is the living room with an alcove with a 8 foot wide bay window. On the opposite side of the house is an identical alcove with a large dinning table and a 8 foot wide bay window. Between these is an outdoor protected deck with table and chairs. Behind the living and dinning areas is the kitchen with the cook top on a counter so that the person cooking has a direct view of the bay. We selected to fix all our meals at the house. The kitchen is a little dated but is spacious with plenty of counter and storage space. The kitchen is well equipped with pots and pans and utensils. The only thing missing from the kitchen is a large cutting board and potato masher. There are three spacious bedrooms at the front of the house away from the bay. The house is in a central location; it is half a block to the main road which takes you into town in one direction, and to several close by county beach parks in the other direction. Our favorite park was “ Carlsmith beach park” with a large grass area to sun yourself and large pools of perfectly clear waist high water protected by a lava rock breakwater to take a swim. While we were there, three sea turtles were constant companions. A quarter of a mile toward town this road intersects into a perpendicular highways which takes you to the volcano and the main shopping area. People will tell you that it is always raining in Hilo- Don't believe it! During our 14 day stay, 12 were sunny to mostly sunny days."
