Recent Hilo reviews

  • Charming bungalow, perfect for two.

    "Stayed here with my husband for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Any longer though and I would have preferred a full kitchen, but this worked out just fine for us, as we enjoyed eating out at night. It was very clean upon entering, but because it was all closed and locked up, it was very hot and stuffy. We opened the windows and turned on the fans, which cooled it down well enough. I'm not used to the humidity, so it took some getting used to. The house is small, but perfect for two people and for a short stay. Another review mentioned they thought it was more like a studio, and I would have to agree. Even with the wall dividers shut, it wouldn't be very private. I enjoyed a fabulous afternoon, with a gentle breeze on the lanai while reading a good book, it was picture perfect. Ronnie texted me to make sure we made it inside okay and to make sure things were clean. She also texted me the next day to make sure we were enjoying our stay. I appreciated the attention. I really liked how close we were to all of the shops and found the town to be very charming. Evenings were pleasantly cool, private and quiet (with the exception of the birds and frogs, which we enjoyed). The bathrooms were very nice, but it did take a long time for the water to heat up enough to be slightly warmer than cold. Since it was hot and humid outside though, I didn't mind. I would recommend this place and would consider staying here again."

  • Great apartment and centrally located

    "Apt. has a great feeling about it and and wonderful views. Tasteful, tropical style decorating enhances the views of the pool, landscaping and observatory (when weather is clear). Apt is part of a complex set on the edge of a large lake and park and makes for great walking and duck feeding experiences. I highly recommend the apt and owner is pleasant to work with."

  • Third Stay at Mauna Loa Shores

    "We love the location, the amenities and security of this property. We were in Unit 407 which has the closest parking spot and entrance to the elevator. It has a beautiful view of the jungle canopy and of the tide pools. There is plenty of closet space and storage for your belongings. Washer and dryer just outside the door. This is a short drive from the airport, so check in before heading out to shop and see what staples you might need. We have no issues with using spices and accouterments others have left. An assortment of water toys is usually available in the unit. The complex is almost located right in the park where you have easy snorkeling, swimming and turtle viewing. We will always try to stay in this complex and rent from this owner."

  • 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."
