  • Spectacular Zen Location, Real Hawaii Experience

    "Not our first vacation rental, but by far the best VRBO EVER!!! When you arrive you drive up a fairytale tree lined driveway that borders the stream. Then the real beauty and Zen of Hawaii unfolds in front of you as the driveway gives way to a beautiful clearing with a clear stream and huge pond full of brightly colored fish. Even the fish are Zen because they follow you around like they can telepathicaly communicate with you. The house is wonderful with lots easy opening windows and good screens everywhere. We stayed 4 days in August and it was wonderful weather, the high vaulted ceilings with ceiling fans in every room kept it cool and comfortable day/eve. It rained at night and we got to listen to the frogs along with intermittent rain and the stream sounds. A few showers in the morning and by 8am-9am beautiful sunshine streamed through the palm trees. It really does look like a post card, no joke. Never needed to call the owners during our stay, although Linda did call us once to check on us. The house is super clean, no bugs which surprised me since we're in a beautiful jungle. The kitchen is fully equipped although we didn't cook much here, we did enjoy the blender for fruit smoothies and the coffee grinder for our fresh Kona coffee beans. The huge king bed and sauna were my two favorite things inside the house! Who'd of thought you could enjoy a sauna in Hawaii. Linda warned us the internet was slow but I found it fine, I used it every morning and night to post to Facebook with no problems. Two nice big TV's (living room/bedroom). I must say I think they have more DVD's than Walmart, like an entire wall full seriously. Outside is just remarkable, I could babble on forever about the yard, stream, ponds, fish, birds.....Everything you expect to see when you dream about your Hawaii vacation. Even for us city people this house is easy to find, close to town with everything you could want. We picked up local plate lunchs to go while we were out during the day and enjoyed them and fruit from the Hilo Farmers Market for dinner, so we didn't have to bother to cook. My only regret was only booking part of our vacation in Hilo. We went to Kona for 3 days before coming here and then we realized that we wish we had spent all our time at this fabulous Zen location. We're already looking at coming back next year, more to see on the Hilo side, we're sure to book this beautiful property again. Thanks for sharing your little slice of Heaven."

  • 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"

  • No Ka 'Oi The best!

    "What a perfect place to stay. Take time to read the reviews, you will get a taste of what it is like to stay at Lopaka's Lodge. After my wife and I spent 10 days here we I realize that words and pictures alone can not recreate or describe how fantastic our stay here was. Bev is the most kind, pleasant and thoughtful person anyone could know. Bev genuinely wants to provide a "Home Base" for your stay in Hilo/Hawaii to be flawless and the memory of a lifetime. The 800sq ft. Ohana (built for family) is immaculate. After staying here you will feel like family and want to return like we do. Mahalo Bev"
