About Val F

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.

Val F purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Val F chose Hilo

The Kaiwiki house is very special to us. We were the first family on the street to rebuild and renovate, now our neighbors have followed suit. It's our Hilo diamond in the rough.

What makes this cottage unique

There is wide, open park with avacado, ginger, strawberry guava that is perfect for a morning walk and ideal for the kids to play ball, run around, or fly a kite. Just beyond the park is a short path to a swimming hole and waterfall.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your wonderful place with us. The kids had an awesome time & it helped that there were TVs in each room on those rainy days. your book collection made visits to the beach even more relaxing. And as a family of 6, we couldn't have asked for a better place for the price. We would definitely return and stay at your rental again.

Among Hilo accommodations, this is a solid choice

  • 3 of 5

All in all, this is a quaint cottage that meets all of your needs while visiting the east side of the island. The kitchen seems to be very well equipped, and the beds provided a good night's sleep. With a few upgrades, this could be a terrific spot. Specifically, a small thing, but a huge improvement would be a new liner in the shower. I'm sure with the average rainfall in Hilo, it's hard to keep anything from having mildew, but it's a simple fix that goes a very, very long way. The other feedback would be regarding the carpet. Again, I wouldn't want to have to keep carpet clean in such a humid environment. That said, the entire house had a musty smell. A plus was the free, quick wifi!

Owner's Response: We appreciate you bringing these improvements to our attention. We apologize for the shower curtain, it was an oversight that never should have happen. We changed it out and addressed with our housekeeper. As for the carpets they get their share of wear and tear as a vacation rental, and we vacuum after each guest and shampoo the carpets monthly. Thanks again and we hope you will keep us in mind for future visits to Hilo.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my parents and daughter for the weekend. We loved the spacious layout of the rental. The owner was very quick to respond to any questions we had. We truly enjoyed this home away from home. I've recommended it to my brother and will hopefully get a chance to stay here again soon.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as depicted in the pictures and we were surprised to find that the master bedroom had an A/C. The house is big and had tvs in all rooms and a huge kitchen. There was also a park next door and the grand kids enjoyed walking around and seeing the cows. There's also a bunch of chickens, and I liked the sounds but my kids were a little worried about the noise. Nite time was really quiet though and with the windows and room doors closed we couldnt hear the chickens at all. In fact we all laughed at how good we were sleeping and talked about moving to Hilo. Thanks Val for a great stay and we look forward to staying at your home again next year.

Clean and modern interior in a truly local neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house is a short drive away from downtown, up in the hills where the locals live. No resorts and no tourists around.

The kids loved the sound of the many roosters.

The interior was very clean, and modern.

Check-in and check-out were a breeze.

If you plan to visit Hilo or simply need to rest after driving to the Volcano National Park, this is a good option.
