We arrived to a clean and well-stocked condo. It's not the Ritz, folks, but it was clean, comfortable, well-stocked, and in a perfect location. We enjoyed the view and seeing whales from the lanai with the binoculars provided. The location was convenient to our planned activities, yet away from any noisy town traffic. Our favorite part was snorkeling next door with the turtles. We went just before sunset and there were about 30 turtles in the lagoon. We hiked around volcanoes national park, and enjoyed the fresh produce and the lilikoi butters at the farmers market. But, the most amazing day was at Imiloa planetarium. We went for an hour show and none of us was ready to leave after 4 hours, including our four year old. We have been to planetaria in Los Angeles and Chicago, but prefer this one. Our presenter, Cam, also works at Mauna Kea on the telescopes. He was very informative as well as patient and inspiring for our child. The food at Imiloa was the best we tasted of any restaurant in Hilo.
This condo was a great place to stay and we will definitely try to stay in this unit again.
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.
