We have rented many vacation homes but this one is truly unique. The property has many fruit trees. We picked fresh lemons and oranges every morning. The craftsmanship in the home was astounding. We felt like we were waking up in a tree house every morning. I would highly recommend this property if you are seeking a more relaxed, get away from it all feeling. The locals in Hilo were so kind to us. Make sure you eat breakfast at Paul's Place in Hilo!
Staying at Hale Iki was an absolute delight! In addition to being clean, quiet, and comfortable, the detail in the design of the space was wonderful. It was clear that much time and attention was put into the relaxing color scheme of yellows, creams, browns and blues-it was absolutely beautiful! The yard was peppered with fruit trees of various kinds, and the fresh limes were the best I have ever tasted! It was wonderful to leave all of the windows and doors open (screened-in) with the fans running and sleep in the cool night air. Minutes away from Kona, but far enough up the mountain that it cools down at night, Hale Iki is just the perfect place to stay. Also, the view from the driveway was amazing. Ashley was a wonderful hostess, and I cannot wait to stay with her again!
