We met in Hawaii, fell in love in Hawaii....and the rest is history. Now we get to share our good fortune with guests from around the world.

We are happy to have a wonderful home in Hawaii, and we love the Big Island, its many sights and its friendly people.

Hilo gives one the chance to get a feel of the 'real Hawaii.' The Farmers' Market in town is a riot of color from the many exotic fruits and flowers. There's just a special feeling one comes away with after exploring this unique area.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Mika Mizu was the perfect place for our stay in Hilo. It was close to the Falls at Reed's Island, where my sister and her family stayed. The cottage had every amenity we needed, including a washer and dryer (with laundry soap and dryer sheets), and a propane grill. The hosts even provided a welcome basket with kona coffee and local snacks.

Although the cottage was literally in the rainforest, it was only a short drive to town. We found the Safeway had fairly reasonable prices for groceries and wine. There was also a Target and Walmart nearby, as well as a mall (Tip - try the freshly made malasadas at Zippy's Neapolitan Bakery in the food court of the mall - yum!!!).

We had beautiful weather the week we stayed, so we didn't actually spend much time in the cottage, other than sleeping, but we did appreciate the library of books and DVDs. The guidebooks for Hawaii were especially helpful in planning our day trips. Our adventures included visiting Volcanoes National Park, Rainbow Falls, Boiling Pots, Akaka Falls, the Black Sand Beach, the Green Sand Beach, snorkeling in some tide pools, swimming in a "warm" pool, and driving to/from Kona to attend a Luau via Saddle Road.

Our only "complaint" would be the lack of fine dining in the Hilo vicinity. The night before my sister's wedding, we went to dinner at the Hilo Bay Cafe, and were a bit disappointed with the service and the food. Ken's Pancake House actually provided the best meals and at fairly reasonable prices, but it's not really the kind of place you'd go to for a rehearsal dinner.

Overall, we had a wonderful vacation and if we ever went back to Hilo, we wouldn't hesitate to stay in Mika Mizu again!

Marvellous house in the middle of tropical forest in Hilo. The music of the forest at night is unforgettable. Everything was clean. The house is perfect for a couple. The location is central for visiting this coast of big island.

Tropical Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary on the Big Island. We stayed four days on the Hilo side before visiting the Waikoloa Beach area. Our time in Hilo was amazing because of the Mika Mizu. It felt so tropical and we loved being lulled to sleep by the frogs. The place was very clean, the amentities are plentiful and the amazing welcome basket was so thoughtful! I cannot think of one thing that was missing! It was simply magical. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise!

A little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
I am more than happy to write a review Waterfall cottage/ Mika Mizu. From the minute we drove up I was thrilled with how private and charming it was, yet literal minutes from town. It is even nicer that the pictures. When we walked in the front door I was ready to stay forever! It is so well appointed and beautiful done. The floor plan is very open which makes it feel even bigger. Then there is the wonderful balcony that looks right onto the rainforests. If you have never taken a shower looking out on to a rainforest, you don't know what you are missing. We are just so happy that we found this wonderful place to spend our 10th wedding anniversary. I also want to mention that Jamie leaves a wonderful basket of goodies, including great coffee. I was a little sad the the grinder didn't work and I mentioned it. We had a new one for the very next morning! Jamie was so considerate. Many times we have stayed in Kona so we wanted to try staying in HiIo. I loved the the entire area.I live in Oahu and I was ready to move there. There are no fancy restaurants just to let you know. We went to the Pond for our Anniversary and the people were very nice but the food was just OK. The best place we went to eat was in the Hilo farmers Market food court. It was called Hapa Mama's. Take your food to go and head for the beach. It was cheap and really good. That will be my next review:) If I had to say anything that might catch you be surprise it would be the Coqui frogs. If you are not use to the sounds of nature they can get a little loud to say the least. LOL It took a couple of nights and some ear plugs to get use to them. Not a big deal. I can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was and we will stay there again someday:)
