The house is full of lovely artistic touches, the lanai opens onto a gorgeous jungle ravine, and the neighborhood is one of the older, more charming areas of Hilo.
The perfect mix of civilization and nature retreat.
I've worked with other rent-by-owners on Kona side and in San Diego, and they weren't exactly professional. But the owners of Mika Mizu are both warm and professional--available if something goes wrong, but not intrusive or demanding.
This is my best rent-by-owner experience, and I hope to return one day soon!
