COUNTRY COTTAGE, FAMILY FRIENDLY, CLEAN AND AFFORDABLE

Hilo Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom-1 bath in the heart of Hilo town

We believe it's a wonderful experience to become a part of the local community on your vacation to Hawaii island. That it is charming to wake up to the sounds of birds in the backyard and to return home to the warmth and privacy of a home instead of a hotel lobby. And that the smiles and greetings of passers by in the neighborhood provide our guests with a genuine feeling of connectedness to the community.

Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood across from the Hilo airport, our two bedroom-one bath plantation cottage is spacious, clean and affordable for couples, families and friends. Our home features a spacious living room to gather in and plan out your days events, and french doors that open up to a covered lanai where you can sit and enjoy coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the evening after a long day of sightseeing. We offer a a full kitchen to prepare your favorite island breakfast or a meal on the go, a bathtub to clean up the kids, and TV's in each room for a little down time and privacy at the end of the day.

Wireless internet runs throughout the house, along with ceiling fans and LCD Tv's in each room. (Sorry no AC available). Parking is located behind the house and an outdoor attachment contains a washer/dryer for your convenience. This is a home and NOT a party house. Please no smoking, pets, and loud noise.

We are away from the hotels, parking lots and tourist on Banyan Drive, but within walking distance to an array of restaurants and recreational activities. The Airport, University of Hawaii-Community College, and Prince Kuhio Shopping Plaza are all less than two miles from our home. Other points of interest include:

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park 28 mile drive south (approximately 40 minutes)

Swimming beaches/Ponds 2-5 miles

Our family commutes frequently between Hilo and Honolulu. I work at the University of Hawaii and my husband prints the local newspaper. We have two teenagers and they are both gearing up for graduation from high school. We love our pets and have a rottie, a poi dog, a goat, a tortoise, and a cockatiel. When we aren't working we enjoy body surfing, hula, hiking, roller derby, and getting together with friends and family.

We love our Leilani street plantation houses for their charm and proximity to all that Hilo has to offer.

COMFY!!!

  • 4 of 5
Don't let the outside fool you. The house was perfect for my family's stay in Hilo. When we first pulled up to the home it wasn't much of a sight but the moment we stepped into the home......awesome! Comfortable furniture, homey decor and close to town. The lychee tree out back was overflowing with fruit. The wifi did give me some trouble but nothing I couldn't fix. The bedrooms were stocked with the comfiest beds and flat screen TVs. The air freshness were a bit overwhelming but we just turned them off. Thanks again for a wonderful stay. Will definitely stay here again.

COMFORTABLE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Spacious 2 bedroom cottage was everything we needed for our family return to my mom's hometown. Three of us fit nicely in this cottage and there was space for us to hang out with family members in the living room. While we didn't spend much time in the house, it had everything we needed - kitchen, couches for lounging, two beds, closets, good sized bathroom. The owner was nice, checking in and out was super easy. Nice and friendly neighbors. Very very close to airport and many of Hilo's must dos - big island candies, poke shop, hawaiian style cafe

CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE

  • 4 of 5
The cottage was clean and comfortable. Close to all amenities. Owner was easy to communicate with, all transactions went smoothly. Although the cottage has no air-con, we found it plenty breezy with the windows open and the ceiling fan, but then we are used to hot, humid summers. Only two minor negatives for me - neighbours rooster woke us up each morning at dawn and the room deodorisers were a bit too plentiful and not to my liking.

NICE FOUR NIGHT STAY

  • 4 of 5
After the hustle & bustle of Waikiki, our four night stay in Hilo was a relaxing change of pace! Easily located from the airport and central to the CBD and nearby supermarkets, this little cottage was exactly what we needed!

Clean, well appointed and comfortable, I would highly recommend this cottage for a couple, two singles or two couples. PS. The beds are sooooo comfy!

Service in the leadup to our stay was second to none. Polite, easy to book and make payment, and instructions to get access to the property were clear. Thank you so much for your help.

We took day trips around the island while we were here as well. Make sure you check out the whole island! It really is beautiful.

If I ever make it back to Hilo, I'll definitely be coming back here!

GREAT CENTRAL LOCATION-TRADITIONAL PLANTATION STYLE HOME IN HILO

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here at this rental for a couple of days in October to visit family and it was perfect for our family of five. It is in a very central location in Hilo which worked well for us.

The house doesn't look like much from the outside. It is one of your typical plantation style homes with two bedrooms and one bathroom, probably built in the 1950's timeframe. The inside of the house was clean, new carpet in the living rooms and there were two comfortable beds and comfortable sofas. Each room was equipped with flat screen TVs, which were a big plus for us on one of the days when it rained the entire day! One thing I wanted to point out is that the cottage does sleep 6, but there are only two beds. To truly sleep 6, the owner provides and inflatable mattress with bedding.

The big plus was the communication with the owner. She was extremely responsive to emails, phone calls and text messages from the time I booked throughout my stay in Hilo. I would really like to thank her for opening her home to guests like us, and would happily recommend this home to friends and family who want to visit Hilo.

WEEKEND IN HILO

  • 2 of 5
The cottage is very nice and very convenient to everything. We would not have rented the cottage if we knew there was no air conditioning! There should be some mentioned in the posting of no air conditioning! We have little kids and no air conditioning is not a great idea. We don't mind the sounds of birds and other animals but each morning we were all awaken by the next door neighbor's very loud motorcycle at 5am! It's not such a great vacation waking up at 5am.

Owner's Response: Hey Beth...We definitely appreciate every kind of criticism and suggestions about our cottage. It’s how you help us to improve and provide a better value to guests. Poor reviews really do hurt us, as we are simply trying to provide an affordable, clean and comfortable alternative the hotels Hilo and we apologize about the neighbor and will be sure to add that there is no a/c to our listing. In the meantime, we will outfit the house with a few more fans to keep cool. Should you ever visit Hilo again we would like to invite you back for a complimentary night stay. Just let us know if you’d like to take us up on the offer. Mahalo for your review and have a beautiful day!
