Recent Hilo District reviews
"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."

"Perfect relaxing retreat. Location is perfect, a short walk to Richardson Beach Park which is the best beach around (go behind the park building to the right for a great black sand beach and swimming/snorkeling spot). Although there are many other beach parks nearby worth checking out. The house is in the jungle just off of the busy main road, making it very peaceful but still with ocean views and sounds. The Lanai was perfect with the views and sounds, and was where we spent most of the time. We had toddlers, but the lanai was completely fenced in, so we could let them run around the lanai while they searched for geckos! We had been to Hilo before, but keep in mind that this is not a touristy resort area. Very local old time Hawaii feel, which is how we like it! But it is still close to the volcano, waterfalls, hiking, beaches, snorkeling, and great food a short drive away in downtown Hilo. Perfect relaxing location!"

"Marie is a wonderful owner and could not be more generous or helpful. We were a group of three adults and even though it's a studio with one bathroom it worked fine for us! They have done a wonderful job landscaping and it really feels like paradise. I would absolutely recommend, especially if you are planning to do a lot of day trips. We basically made breakfast then took off for the day and then returned to make dinner and watch the sunset from the observation tower. Wonderful!"
