This is our Winter Retirement Condo. We fell in love with Hilo Town when we brought our daughter to college here in 2000. We knew we wanted to purchase a property where we could get up each morning and swim in the ocean. There's no better place for that than Carlsmith (Four Mile) Beach which is a 5 minute walk from our condo. We love to be outside so the opportunities to swim, snorkel, hike to the waterfalls and in the rain forests is what we love most about living here. We live in Colorado Springs, Colorado during the summer and fall each year where we enjoy our kids and grand kids.

The condo was wonderful for my wife and two teenage children, very clean and roomy, loved the sliding partition in the living room so the kids could have their own "rooms". Close to beaches with lots of sea turtles swimming by. A 5 minute drive to the airport and close to downtown Hilo. The Volcano National Park was a highlight for us all. Hilo seems to be a very laid back city and we enjoyed just relaxing by the pool or at the beach.
The condo was clean and tastefully furnished, well equipped and roomy.
The condo had every thing we needed. It was very well supplied with all the basics. The furniture was comfortable & the unit was very clean. Lots of beaches close to the condo.
Easy access from the airport & to shopping malls. Must have a car to stay at this location.
We really enjoyed our 11 nights at the condo. Carol was really helpful in figuring out whether the condo would work for me as a wheelchair user, and it did work with some creativity. The surrounding gardens are very pleasant, and it is a short walk to a great beach park that we really enjoyed. The condo was very clean and orderly when we arrived and, except for some noise from the airport, was quiet and comfortable. I especially enjoyed the couches for afternoon naps while my wife took inspiration from the gardens and ocean to set up her easel and paint on the lanai. We really enjoyed Hilo as well, especially the Farmer's Market and the art galleries. We will definitely go back!
The condo had everything I wanted for my 6-week stay.
Location is supreme, situated walking distance to the beautiful beach parks, 10 minutes to downtown, and 4 miles to the airport! Interiors are very tastefully upgraded. Everything was clean-clean-clean. Owner (Carol) always responded to my e-mail within a few hours (in reasonable business hours, of course). Without this condo, I wouldn't have enjoyed my stay in Hilo as much as I did.
I strongly recommend Volcano House restaurant in the Hawaii Volcano National Park, especially after dark. Nowhere in the world you can experience a fine dining, looking down on a red-orange glare of volcano! Well worthwhile to drive 40-45 min from the condo.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Hale Moana Condo. Everything we needed was available to us i.e., towels, utensils, toiletries, etc., not to mention we cooked the majority of our meals at the condo and didn't lack for anything. We would highly recommend a stay at this condo while visiting Hilo! The condo is close to the airport, beach where you can swim with turtles, nice pool, not far from the center of town and many sights including Rainbow Falls, Akaka Falls, Botanical Gardens, Zoo, Farmers Market (Wed and Sat), ziplining, etc. Most definitely we would stay here again when visiting Hilo! Thanks Carol for everything, you are a wonderful and gracious host!
Our condo is right in the middle of the BEACH PARKS along Kalanianaole Ave. including Onekahakaha Beach Park, Carl Smith Beach Park (Four Mile), Richardson's Ocean Park, Leleiwi Beach Park, and Kealoha Beach Park. Richardson's is the best for snorkeling, but our favorite is Carl Smith Beach Park (5 minute walk from the condo). It has a calm area with many large green sea turtles and steps down into the water. During November-April we often see whales and spinner dolphins. And, occasionally a monk seal or two. VOLCANO NATIONAL PARK is an easy 45 minute drive and along the way you will be able to visit ATKUSURA ORCHIDS (free admission), the HILO RAIN FOREST ZOO (free admission), and MOANA LOA NUT FARM. If you are interested in MUSEUMS, there are two of particular interest right downtown HILO~the PACIFIC TSUNAMI MUSEUM and the LYMAN MUSEUM~both highly recommended. Don't miss the HILO FARMERS MARKET on Wednesdays and Saturdays~right downtown on Kamehameha. TROPICAL BOTANICAL GARDENS with a waterfall and ocean overlook, AKAKA FALLS, RAINBOW FALLS AND BOILING POTS, UNAMA FALLS, PADDLE BOARDING, KAYAKING, SCUBA DIVING, SNORKELING there is so much to see and do and our condo makes a great home base.
