  • Can review in one word --GREAT!

    "The place of this property is fantastic. Driveway is tight but doable for anyone. Slider screens need a little oil, TLC, however everything was Fantastic! I would highly recommend this place and hope we can visit it again!"

  • Beautiful Sunrises

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay in this spacious, nicely decorated home with its wonderful ocean view. The location north of Hilo provides a quiet, peaceful get-away but is convenient to attractions such as Akaka Falls, Waipi'o valley, Pahoa and Kilauea Volcano Park. The three of us were very comfortable. We enjoyed the tropical garden and especially the beautiful sunrises each morning. Hale Hamakua is a very good value for the price. One tip: I would suggest stocking up on groceries in Hilo before you arrive."

  • Beautiful Location

    "This is a cute condo located right next to the Carlsmith park. There is a designated parking spot for the condo which is right next to the elevator--very convenient. The condo was very clean and had most everything you would need during your stay (although we did need coffee filters and couldn't find any so bought some.) Beach towels and beach chairs are provided which is a nice touch and we used them when we went to the beach park next door. You don't even need to drive as the park is literally next door! We never made it to the pool, but saw people swimming in it. The front bedroom faces out to the street, which seemed to be a bit noisy from the road, but we slept in the back bedroom and it was quiet. The laundry room is just down the walkway from the condo--very convenient. The only reason I gave this condo 4 stars instead of 5 is because it was so hot and difficult to cool the place down even with the ceiling fan and standup fans. Not having a/c is the norm for most places in Hilo, but it seemed difficult to cool down the condo. We got a good breeze, though, by opening the front door and the lanai sliding door. Even with the heat I would recommend this condo--great location, great price!"

  • Better than advertised! Very clean, comfortable, relaxing. Great place!

    "I stayed here with my husband for three nights and we loved this place. We spent our days out-and-about exploring and this was the perfect place to come home to each evening. The property is located on a nice quiet private street in Honomu. We enjoyed walking a very short distance to the local coffee shop and bakery each morning. We found Honomu to be a good centrally located place to stay for exploring the Hilo side of the island. We hiked the Waipio to Waimanu Valley (and back) to the north on one of our days here (AMAZING!!!) and on another day, we snorkeled the Kapoho tidepools and visited Ahalanui geo-thermal pool to the south and also hit the more touristy sites like Rainbow Falls, Boiling Pots, the Botanical Garden, Onomea trail, and Akaka Falls. Hilo also isn't too far away from Honomu and we enjoyed getting take-out from Sombat's Thai Restaurant and eating it on the Lanai, which is so pleasant. Suprisingly, it wasn't buggy at all. We had no issue with the furniture being loosely tacked down. At the table, there are two chairs. I imagine if there were more people staying here and everyone wanted to sit around the table at the same time this might be an issue, but there is also plenty of outdoor couch/chair seating space around a small coffee-table for a larger group of people. The kitchenette was more than adequate for our purposes --no complaints here. We used the dishes, fridge and freezer (for ice cream!) and had no issues. The bathrooms were clean. The bathrobes provided were a nice touch. The double-headed showers were great too. The bed was very comfortable. There is absolutely no need for air conditioning here (and we're from Alaska!) as there was a nice cross breeze through screened windows and there are two ceiling fans. There is another floor-based fan provided that we found in the closet on our last day, but we didn't need it anyway. Having a hot tub was awesome. It is for shared use with the other units on the property (I'm not sure how many there are - maybe 1 or 2?), but we did not see any one else using the hot tub while we were here. The stars are amazing! We ended up communicating with the property owner, Ronni, about a small issue with the hot tub that has since been resolved. She responded very quickly. We found her to be very honest and fair. No problems or complaints here. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks Ronni!"
