  • Relaxing option with great location for beach parks

    "We loved the location, a 10 minute drive from downtown but next to the Hilo beach parks. Easy access for driving to nearby attractions, including Volcano National Park, Pahoa, and lava viewing. The sound of waves and frogs at night were an unexpected lullaby with the tree canopy on the other side of the pool from the master bedroom window. The toaster didn't work, the bedroom ceiling fans and bathroom vent were covered with a thick layer of dust, and the vacuum in the closet wasn't functioning to clean them. Response time from management to ask about a key that was specified in our directions but not included in the lockbox was 24 hours, so we didn't bother to ask about a Philips head screwdriver to tighten the creaking master bed or a working vacuum. There were not blinds in the master bedroom so sunrise was the natural alarm clock just before 7:00 am. Even with the areas that could use improvement, the location and value bump the rating to 5 stars. The building is not modern, and there are many other units within the property that are listed on VRBO with the same management company. This unit had a nice oceanside view and the benefits of the abutting forest for a much more enjoyable stay than being on the road side of the building. The beach park next door was very popular with locals, and we were lucky to have a parking spot on the property that afforded us walking two minutes from the unit to the park. We would consider returning to this unit."

  • Beautiful Home

    "We spent 5 days at the Whale House and loved every minute of it. The house is spacious and light with cool ocean breezes. There is a porch that wraps around the entire house and we enjoyed many a meal and drink watching the waves and whales. The area is beautiful and we had sunny skies our entire stay. After staying at several VBRO properties I have found the owner/operators ones to be superior. It was everything we wished for."

  • The place was perfect for our stay on the Hilo side!

    "Clean, comfortable and just enough kitchen to cook a few meals. And Greg was helpful when we needed something. The upper deck was great for evening cocktails and morning coffee - what a great sunrise!"

  • Perfect!

    "We stayed here for three nights with our three children aged 10, 8 and 4. I was pleasantly surprised how big this place was - it's very rare to say this but the photos don't do it justice! With this vrbo it is so much nicer than the photos. It is pristinely clean and has everything you need. On the first morning we were greeted by a whale right in the ocean in front of the house. As the owners state in the property details, the garden falls right off into the cliff so if you have small children who are liable to wander, this might not be the best property. The property manager did check with me prior to booking that our children would be safe here, and that was greatly appreciated. One thing I did notice is that the sliding doors felt substantial and safe. I think there has been a review recently regarding the doors but they seem to have been repaired and were fine for us. We didn't try to use the tv. It is about 15 minutes from Pahoa where there are a few restaurants and nice cafes, and there is a grocery store about ten minutes away. The coastal areas here are easy to reach, as is Hilo. There's a bit of rush hour traffic getting back from hilo on highway 130 so try and avoid this if you can. We would definitely love to come back here again. I can find no faults with this place at all. Its a great place to stay!"
