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.
