This was my ninth trip to Hawaii and my first time staying in Hilo. Mika Mizu has to rate as one of the top two of all the places I have stayed. The location is what makes it. From the feeling of being in a secluded rainforest while inside the beautiful house, then just being 5 minutes from Hilo's sweet downtown area and access to all major roadways, Mika Mizu is a gem. I travelled with my 78 year old mother who was as enchanted as I was! Although she didn't venture down to see the property's waterfall, I did and it was just icing on the cake. In Hilo, we especially enjoyed the Farmer's Market and the friendly patrons. We also took a ride in a Blue Hawaiian helicopter to see the volcano and waterfalls. What an amazing trip! Jamie was especially helpful and made us feel like family! I hope one day soon to return with my husband or my mom!! I would stay here again in a second.
