Hike to close by Kolekole park and dip in the water, or for less adventourouse guests, it is about a 5 minute drive.

We loved our vacation at Ola Kai Views. The house was amazing & had plenty of space for us to spread out, while still enjoying time as a family. Beautiful views. Access road is a little rough, but there had been a lot of rain the afternoon we arrived and throughout most of our stay. Jacuzzi was wonderful to use after a day of hiking. We had no problems at all. A little farther from Hilo than we realized, but the drive was pleasant.

Reviewer Comments:
Our holiday at the Ola Kai View and cottage was everything we expected from the online pictures. The décor is so accommodating to a family reunion. We all were very comfortable and used the Tiki bar every night.

The property management company I used to book my reservations were less than professional. We had a power outage at the property. There was no response to our call to the number left for emergencies. The owner came on over to express his concern, NO RESPONSE FROM THE RENTAL AGENT.

Reviewer Comments:
We turned on the long gravel drive that made us nervous at first, then we felt as though we were transcending to a truly different place. We continued until we turned and the gravel back road transformed to a plantation like driveway that lead to a truly special experience. We appreciate the Tiki Hut most, but the whole stay was filled with fun exploration and new discoveries. We will definitely be returning soon.

I would definitely rent this house again

  • 5 of 5
We spent 4 of our 11 days on the island at Ola Kai Views. The house was clean, and decorated in a fun, kitschy Hawaiian theme. The property is well-maintained inside and out. There was plenty of room for our party of five to spread out. The beds were unbelievably comfortable and ceiling fans in the bedrooms along with screens on the doors allowed enough air to circulate at night. The grounds were beautifully kept and included fruit-bearing citrus trees! In the evenings after a day of adventuring, we sat on the lanai by the Tiki bar enjoying the stars as we sipped fresh whiskey sours made from the juice of lemons and limes off the trees in the yard. We also cooked all of our meals from fresh fruits and veggies purchased at the Hilo farmers' market. Keeping in mind this is in a rainforest area, there are bugs. I work for an entomologist, so I think bugs are interesting. If bugs are not ok in your world, spend your time on the Kona side in a condo where they spray to kill bugs and the climate is dryer in general. I loved the sound of the coqui frogs, (I forgive them for being invasive) and the presence of geckos! I think we were past mosquito season in late November because we did not have a problem with them. Staying here you are close to the highway about 15 minutes or so from Hilo. The little KoleKole beach park is a short walk or jog on a back road out the driveway--go to the right when you get to the end of the shared part of the driveway. The house is in a good location to visit the Kopoho tide pools, Volcano park and that whole side of the island in general. Our favorite activity was a hike to see lava from the the Pu'u 'O'o crater lava flow. We did this trek with Ahiu Hawaii Adventures in Hilo. It was a challenging 7 or so mile hike on a very rough trail through the jungle, and over old lava flows, more recent lava flows to find actual flowing lava! Go only if you have an excellent level of fitness, or if you have youth on your side. Whatever you choose to do, this property is an excellent home base from which to explore the North and East sides of the island. We hope to come back!

Oasis in the Rain Forest

  • 5 of 5
This was truly an experience. We had a great time tucked away in this hidden gem. The Tiki Hut was exceptional and we were there reading or being with friends whenever we had the chance.

With all the conveniences of home we settled in for a great 3 week stay and appreciated every day we spent here. The master suite was excellent, but each bedroom had a bathroom. The bedroom off the Tiki Hut is a get away unto itself. We were tempted to stay there, but the master was our home for the time we were there.

We went to Botanical World Adventures that was less than a mile away for the zip line, botanical gardens and Segway tours which were amazing. Ask for the guided tour - it was so informative.

The house seems so secluded while still having access to restaurants and shopping just 15 or 20 minutes away in Hilo. We will bring our tennis racquets next time to go to the nearby courts as well.

Overall we couldn't have had a better vacation. We will definitely be returning in the near future for another stay.

Reviewer Comments:
With all the beautiful furnishings, we were amazed the owner would rent to strangers. A great experience, although hot for sleeping. Suggestions: put up a sign about the drinking water. A screen door at front entry would help get cool air inside. Label the light switches as there are sooo many. Would return in a heartbeat!
