Hilo House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom 2 Bath Cottage right across the beach!

Charming beach cottage with commanding ocean view of the best beach on the east side of Hawaii! Waiuli (Richardsons Beach) is the best for swimming, surfing, and snorkeling. What's the best thing about it? It's right across the street! Grab a mask and snorkel (there's plenty of fun beach gear at the house to use!) and go explore the cove! Wish to just relax and lay in the shade? There's a great area behind the house to hang out or bbq while watching the ocean. Perfect for families, groups or a nice couple get-away!

Wonderful location and charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage was clean and comfortable. Richardson Beach is a great place to have as a home base for a vacation on the Hilo side of the island. Each morning, we started our day walking around the beach park, finding turtles, watching waves roll in, and looking up at Mauna Kea. The kitchen is basic, but is more than adequate for simple meals. The beds are comfortable, we had 2 adults and 4 kids, and didn't use the pull-out couch upstairs, so I can't comment on that. The basement shower is a dream. The unit is stocked well with beach gear, a kayak, SUP and snorkel gear, as well as towels and beach chairs. We were lucky and got very little rain, too. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, and highly recommend it!

Cute Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very quaint and cutely decorated. Very comfortable. The pull out couch in the living room could use some tender loving care and a new mattress. Located just across the street from the water and a great park with swimming and laying out. Hilo is the side to stay on if you are going to visit the Volcano National Park and the wonderful falls in the area. Very enjoyable stay! We did not use the downstairs bedroom. It has a separate entrance.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

Really nice place, especially for two couples as the downstairs is completely separate. Well cared for, clean, older home outfitted with nice little touches. Not at all fancy, just classic old Hawaii. If you're mostly looking for a beach to lay on, go to the other side of the island. But if you want to base yourself near Hilo, this is your spot.

Great Location across from the ocean and park

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed the location. It is near the end of a street that runs along the ocean, to a well maintained park. The cottage itself was well laid out - a master bedroom in the back by the open-concept kitchen. A sofa sleeper that is set back for easy use. Kitchen is well stocked but doesn't have an oven (seriously not an issue in 80-degree weather!). There is a downstairs apartment that we ended up not using but gives great room for a second couple or for teenage children. Must go outside to reach the downstairs so not recommended for younger children. So many great things - comfortable lanai, outside shower, washer/dryer and lower patio with table and a BBQ. Also lots of beach equipment and towels! Two parking areas. The back yard is a virtual jungle with lots to explore! If you don't like noise, then the Coqui frogs might be annoying. We found that we loved and missed them when we moved on to Kona side. We met Fuzzy, the owner - super nice guy! So many windows and fans for circulation! We would gladly return to this location (as we missed seeing actual lava or the glow within a crater).

Loved this cottage across from the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage. The location is great. Close to Hilo and easy access to go and explore the north, south or to get onto saddle road to head west. The farmers market in Hilo is close by and has the best selection of fruits and veggies. The kitchen is nice and big and very open concept. The whole house was spotless and we loved the decor. The bed on the main floor was very comfortable. The ceiling fans were great for keeping the place cool. We loved that there were so many windows to let in the fresh air and warm breezes. And I personally loved listening to the frogs at night. The huge porch out front is fabulous. It is covered so you can sit out there if it is raining. The house was stocked with snorkel gear, water shoes, noodles, boogie boards, kayak and surf board. And the outdoor shower has hot water….that was awesome and great for rinsing off after swimming across the street at Richardson beach.

If you are in need of the pullout couch on the main floor the mattress does need replacing. Otherwise we loved everything about this place. I would highly recommend this cottage and hope to have the privilege of staying here when we visit Big Island again.

Tropical heaven by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to use VRBO and certainly not our last one. The process to book was very easy and we found this fantastic place by the ocean in Hilo. It is located just opposite a beach park which makes life really easy. Kayaking, surfing, snorkling just in front of the house.

The house is very spacious with two levels and two baths plus a great outdoor shower. And you have boogie boards, snorkling gear, barbecue ... all you would want at your house by the ocean.

We were 2 adults plus two children and had lots of space. Hilo is a great location if you want to visit the Volcano national parc but we also drove up to Kona which was an easy drive with a lot of scenic viewpoints, waterfalls etc.
