We truly enjoyed our stay at this house. It was exceptionally clean and even tho we arrived after Hurricane Iselle the yard was well maintained and they did everything possible to get the pool done as soon as they could. We enjoyed the view of the ocean from the lanai and the sound of the waves along the coastline. As others have stated it is about 20 min from Hilo so plan accordingly but it a great "starting point" for the many parks and beaches. The neighborhood was great, very quiet and well maintained. We used the pool and hot tub on a daily basis. We have a large extended family around Hilo and there was plenty of room for everyone for family dinners.
