  • Fun local Hawaiian experience

    "Loved all the space, and the home is decorated in such fun Hawaiian themes and colors. We had three kids, and three adults so we are glad we rented the extra room that comes with an extra bathroom too, that was helpful. The house has everything you need for your stay, very comfortable. The owner will do a load of laundry for a fee, which we needed. They also had a great selection of DVDs which my kids enjoyed. There is no AC but with the many fans it was still comfortable. The only thing that was strange, but ended up working out better than we thought, was that you can't use the water from the faucets. You can only use the water they provide from the large water bottles. The house is tucked away in a neighborhood and feels very private. It's a great location to get to Volcano NP, waterfalls, Hilo's farmer market and many more fun things. If you are questioning coming the Hilo side of the island, you should go!"

  • 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."

  • Orchid House is clean, well maintained, and comfortably furnished.

    "The house is located on a spectacular section of coast on a quiet road. The kitchen is clean, but not well furnished with cookware or large bowls. The house is spacious and was very comfortable for my husband and me. I would recommend it for two or three people. It is a longer drive from Hilo than indicated on the website, but the location is good for those wanting to get to the Park and the lava flows."

  • Amazing house! Amazing view!

    "Being the skeptic that I can be at times, before we left for the Big Island, I said "if this house is half as nice as the photos, I will be happy." Happily, my skepticism was not needed because the house is fantastic! The house was clean, comfortable,and fresh. The kitchen is stocked for real cooks, it had everything I needed to prepare meals for a crowd, which we did many times during our week stay. Coffee on the lanai, breakfast on the lanai, dinner on the lanai! (You get the picture!). This is a lovely, charming house, thank you, Sterling and Trish! When Hurricane Madeline threatened (but eventually became a typical storm), we learned the house had flashlights, candles, matches and lanterns. The ocean view, lanai, hot tub, and pool were enjoyed continually and just perfect. We spotted green sea turtles in the waves and swam in the pool under the stars. The Ohana Suite provided the extra space we needed for the group. While a bit of a drive from Hilo, with some grocery planning in advance, we didn't mind and loved the peace and quiet. We took morning neighborhood walks with an ocean view and met warm and friendly locals. Our other outings included Blue Hawaiian Helicopter ride, hikes in the Park, visit to black sands beaches in the south, and Akaka/Rainbow Falls, and more. When it was time to leave, we all agreed we wished we had booked more days. Great Big Island vacation in a very special house! Grace, Dave, and group"
