Guestbook comments from the manager

Kids loved Leleiwi Beach in front of the house. We saw a turtle on our first day and the kids got to swim with several. This is a great house. Very comfortable and clean. We appreciated all the extras (snorkling stuff, beach towels, movies, games, etc.) The weather was perfect and access to both beaches was so nice. We can't wait to come back. Thank you again.

Awesome property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at this property!! We've been to Hawaii many times and from the first day I found myself thinking that I wished we found this house years ago.

The house features a huge living room with direct views of the water. The room opens into the dining area and kitchen. Multiple windows keep a nice breeze coming through. We enjoyed "happy hour" under the Monkey Pod tree overlooking the ocean where we watched multiple whales playing and jumping.

The house is fully stocked with all kinds of pots, pans and utensils that made eating in easy for us. The basement storage room had all kinds of recreation equipment from masks, flippers, water shoes, kayaks, boogie boards, a paddle board and bicycles!! The beach is a short walk and the snorkeling area is right across the street where you'll see tropical fish and sea turtles every day.

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this home. If I could rate it 6 stars, I would...

relaxing, great kitchen, ocean veiw & turtles

  • 5 of 5

just wanted to say thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home. We enjoyed our stay very much, and found it very relaxing. It had everything anyone could want and

we enjoyed the location very much. It was a great base from which to explore all the eastern island sites. There were large turtles in the tidepools right across the street. Fantastic!

We would love to come again sometime.

Perfect for Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This old style Hawaii home was perfect for our annual family Christmas gathering. Our group of 11 included teens and adults. We rented the house for a week and our family arrived in batches. Being close to the airport was very convenient. The three bathrooms were a plus, and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Shopping for food was easy, since the stores were close by. We loved the large living/dining area and would all congregate there in the evening.

During the day, the view out the front window to the most magnificent monkeypod tree and the tide pools beyond was amazing. We loved riding the bicycles on the back road, swimming at Richardson's--a short walk down the road as well as watching and swimming with the turtles directly across the street. The stand up paddle board was great, along with all the snorkels, masks, and ocean toys.

The only downside was the sound of coqui frogs at night, but we got used to them after a while. There was a problem with the internet, but it was resolved once it was brought to the owner's attention.

I would definitely recommend this house if you are looking for a place big enough to accommodate your group. It was very clean and well maintained. The location close to the airport, as well as shopping was convenient. The grounds were beautiful and the weather was perfect. My family members kept saying this was one of the best gatherings we've had.

Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

The house and location were absolutely wonderful. We enjoyed the Hilo area because it allowed us to experience the real, non-tourist Hawaii. If you want a fancy condo, don't choose this house, but if you want a family friendly, peaceful beach experience, this is it. The owner was great to work with and everything we needed was there.

MORE Than 5 Stars! WONDERFUL Beach House!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I truly do not have words to explain how wonderful this beach house was for our large family.

Our kids have (grade school, middle school, high school, and young adult) have just had a BALL here, and so did we. The home is stocked with every possible thing you might need, including beach chairs, paddle boards, snorkel tubes, etc. We even donated some new snorkel gear to the pile of stuff in the store room. :) The house is situated along a row of Hilo beaches---the most wonderful snorkeling, fun swimming, and sheer visual beauty is just across the little road. We affectionately called the beach directly in front of the house, "our front yard." The actual front yard is huge (the house is on two lots), with the most wonderful spreading tree. The younger kids had a blast climbing it and swinging on the rope swing. Someone was always in the tree, during our entire 9 day stay. :) We even had our little wedding under the tree in front of the beach...magical.

It rains often in Hilo, but it passes quickly and never stopped us. In a half an hour, the sun is out again and so were we---snorkeling, swimming, using the paddle boards provided with the house. The rain is what makes this area so lush and tropical---truly a better fit for us than the dry Kona side.

Everything we need is either in the house, or just a few minutes drive away, as a big shopping center, including a large Walmart and Safeway, are close by---as is the wonderful Farmer's Market, as well as the cutest selection of downtown shops ever.

Our first day here, we saw two turtles, and then have seen more every day we were here. Speaking of the ocean, the snorkeling is fantastic! We have had a blast playing and leaping around on the lava rocks, too. The beaches here get crowded on the weekends, but not overly so, but you have them almost to yourselves all week long, especially in the mornings! The crowding is mostly locals, playing with their families, which our kids really loved and commented on. It was awesome to see so many adults playing and swimming with their kids!

I have tried, but I really don't have words for the awesomeness of this beach house. Our kid's range from 2nd grade to middle school to high school to young adult, as well as the two of us (both 39) and every single one of us has been so impressed and delighted by this rental property. You will absolutely NOT be disappointed. HIGHLY recommended. It was the most wonderful vactaion "home base" I can imagine.
