We had a wonderful time. Terry is very responsive and has thought of the details, so the condo is very well equipped for cooking. There are masks, flippers, really great binoculars, guidebooks, beach towels and so on. We stayed a week and are counting on returning soon.
The only shortcoming is out of the owner's hands: across the street are two dogs who bark for much of the day. They are quiet at night but start up early in the morning. Not too much of a problem if you are in the bedroom facing the ocean, but a drag if you are in the bedroom facing the street and the house across the way. But if you get out and explore the Big Island you won't have to hear them much.
This was our third time to stay in this condo, and we WILL be back. Condo is well furnished, very well equipped, and the views are spectacular! We stayed for two weeks and were able to visit all the local tourist places and still have time to enjoy a nightly mai tai on the lanai. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook a full meal, if you are so inclined, but there are a number of good restaurants, for eat in or take out. And the Hilo Farmers' Market has the best local produce you could ask for...
What a wonderful place to stay. We walked in and saw the incredible views that awaited our stay. The lanai was our favorite place to be. The condo has everything you could need to insure a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. We felt very lucky to have found such a great treasure. The location is excellent and easy to get to town. Thanks for providing the snorkel gear and beach chairs for us to use. We will definitely be staying here any time we visit Hilo.
The location of this unit was amazing! I chose to stay on the Hilo side because I wanted a more authentic experience of Hawaii and this was a perfect place for it. The state park right next door was so beautiful and whether in the master bedroom or the lanai, the view was spectacular. The unit had everything I could have needed for my stay there and I found it convenient to Hilo but far enough out of the center to be private and quiet. The only thing that was difficult for me was having no air conditioner, which I knew before I came, but during my visit it was unusually hot and a couple of days with no breeze. I would suggest one more big fan for the unit. Overall a great stay.
The pictures do not convey how absolutely terrible this place is. We canceled our reservation at a partial loss after arriving. The building's soviet era panelak feel evokes a certain dread about the walkways, which slope toward the 7th floor railing. The pool was unusable as it was being disinfected. Definitely not a good place for small children.
How many times can you stay somewhere and find out they only took pictures of the highlights and hide the not so nice features. This unit was well represented and exceeded what was presented. We stay at time shares at least 3 weeks a year and this unit exceeds what we get with our time shares. It was well stocked with items you would normally have to purchase ie misc spices and every kitchen tool you would need. There is no air conditioning but we prefer not to have any anyway and knew that going in. There are plenty of fans in the unit and we had no issues. Hilo is not like Kona with the high humidity. The master bedroom is fantastic with bed set high so you could lay in bed and watch the ocean. The frogs and waves are great to hear during the evenings. Nice quiet neighbors, even left us some desert. The keys work well with good security. We made the mistake of forgetting the second set of keys and ended driving back to return them the owner was gracious to us even with our error. We plan on staying their again next year and really enjoyed Hilo with some quality time there. The single bathroom was not issue since it was only two of us. Be sure to consider this if you are a family. The kitchen appliances are good to great condition. The kitchen is for only one person at a time, but who spends that much time in the kitchen. There was some construction going on with repairs of the unit but no issue as we where out most of days and they stopped early afternoon. They have recycling. Again I give this 10 out of 10. The parking was fine with reserved parking space for the unit. No one ever parked in our space. The water is near good access.
