GOOD PRICE FOR HILO

  • 5 of 5
Good location near Hilo downtown. Hilo side of the island can be a bit rainy but worth a try.
The apartment is very comfortable and well maintained.
Very nice organic supermarket in Hilo downtown (5min of drive), cheaper than safeway which is more far.

NOT EXACTLY AS I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE

  • 3 of 5
There are a few things that the owner should clear up about this rental. First- the description says there is a kitchen- but there is no oven/stove, and to me that doesn't constitute a full kitchen. The picture also shows a dishwasher- however it isn't working (and I was told it is mainly there to add counter space). Second, the washer and dryer are outside of the unit- you share them. They are located in someone else's garage, and you do have to pay $2 for each 30 minutes of the dryer (your dry clothes will get wet coming back in if its raining). The owner doesn't really have control of this, but when you get to the house it may be messy on the outside because people live (fulltime) in other parts of this house. The suite is dark and dampish and there is nowhere comfortable to sit in the living room- saggy bamboo furniture is not my favorite. Going outside to enjoy the yard in the evening is not recommended as the mosquitos are atrocious! Also, you probably will not get cell phone reception in the basement. On the plus- the new paint in the unit is nice, there are guide books, novels, games and outdoor gear to use, and the house is very close to downtown Hilo. Also, the owner is very quick to respond to any concerns and is helpful- they purchased a brand new pack-n-play specifically for us to use during our stay. (Thanks!)

HONEYMOONING IN HILO

  • 4 of 5
Using VRBO for the first time, I was a little worried about the reality of being in New Zealand and the contact being in America. But this rental blew those worries out of the water - firstly because the owners were approachable before the event on email and made it seem easy. After finding the unit with excellent directions, the clean property was exactly as promised. Along with the offer of using beach gear and washing facilities, this was a great little getaway. Even though there were people above us, we heard little of them as we enjoyed the comforts of a home away from home. My only minor criticism is that it could use a few more lights in the backroom (a basement flat so naturally a bit dark) but all in all, for a first time to Hawai'i this was a great location, great unit and a great rental - given the owners were in contact throughout, I'd have no issue recommending this to people whatsoever. It's good value, good peaceful location and yet close enough to the town and facilities to mean that it feels like an island getaway but with the chance to be part of a community as well. If you're ever worried about a rental, this is not one to be concerned with - it met all of our expectations and then some.

GOOD VALUE

  • 4 of 5
The one bedroom basement suite is a very good value for Hilo. The location is within 5 miles of the city center so with a bike or car, getting around is quite easy. There are permanent tenants that live upstairs from the room, but with the cacophony of coqui frogs, you will never know it. We had other friends in a different part of town and the frogs were just as vocal there, so it is not unique to this property. The room is essentially a basement, it is block walls and below ground level so there is a small musty smell, but nothing difficult. When I think of a view, I think about sitting in a chair, relaxing with a drink and enjoying the scenery.... for you to enjoy the view of the verdant back yard from within your suite, you must be standing and at least 6 foot tall.. I would discount the view completely. Overall, the suite had good amenities, the shower had pressure and the tv and refrigerator worked. I gave this location a good rather than average rating because at this price, you could be expecting less.

LIVING ALONG IN HILO

  • 4 of 5
I was not really on vacation, so much as on reconnaissance prospecting for a place to live in retirement. Hilo was at the top of my list, not only for the climate (I like rain and overcast skies and do not like unrelenting sunshine) but also because, in comparison with Kailua Kona, Hilo is a real and charming, funky little town inhabited by real people and it is not overrun by tourists. Hilo is home to a small but excellent branch campus of the University of Hawai'i and a first-class planetarium, and the Big Island is home to two major observatories on Mauna Loa (terrestrial climate) and Mauna Kea (the universe), so there are interesting people around doing interesting things. And by Hawai'i standards, Hilo real estate (and the eastern side of the Big Island generally) is affordable. This place I stayed in for three weeks had some positives and some negatives. On the positive side, it is roomy (a living, dining, kitchen space, a bedroom with two big beds, and a bathroom) and well furnished. While it has no stove, it does have an antique two-burner portable electric stovetop, an electric skillet, a toaster oven, and a microwave, plus all the kitchen utensils I needed. And most positively, it is on the dramatically beautiful Hamakua Coast and very close to town--about four miles and a ten-minute drive. Now on the negative side, it is a semi-basement apartment, the floor of which is about three feet below ground level, with windows looking out on a concrete walk beyond which there is a pretty, well-tended lawn. Over this unit there are two other apartments; and beside it there is a house. There is no ocean view. There is no lanai. Oh wait! There is a lanai, you just aren't allowed to use it. It's reserved for the use of those renting the studio unit and the house, but whose tenants used it but rarely. So the lanai is actually shared. Just not shared by you. For my money, sitting on the Lanai having a drink as the sun goes down is the essence of the island experience. I had originally signed up to rent the studio unit above the basement unit because it has a lanai but was told that that had just been rented and got switched to the lower unit. If I was going to sit outside, it had to be on concrete at ground level. The owner could remedy that with a wave of his ownerly wand and maybe this review along with some others will move him to do so. But, for my reconnaissance purposes, overall, this place accommodated me nicely at a relatively affordable rate.
