Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great experience for our family! A wonderful well cared for home with plenty of room for three kids to get some space after a long day looking at the great sights the Big Island has to offer. I can tell Melanie is a sweetheart even though we only conversed via email. Prompt with replys to any questions and makes sure everything is just right for your arrival. The pool is outstanding and the neighbors are very friendly, great place from which to explore Mauna Kea, Kilauea Crater, Black Sand beaches, abundant waterfalls and The Hilo Farmers market. We live on Oahu so the whole Hawaii scene is nothing new but we had a simply awesome time and Melanie and Todd allowing us to stay in this beautiful home just added to it. Thanks again Melanie!

Great Place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a Beautiful Home! In a gated and safe country like location . A good spot because there are many thing to see and do in the local area. By the way ,staying home and enjoying your pool and landscape is not a bad idea either.

Consider this One as it is a great value offered by folks that make your visit pretty easy.

Aloha !

Wonderful, relaxing vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house in quiet, Hawaiian Paradise Park neighborhood. We stayed for five days of a ten day Big Island trip. The house was immaculate with beautiful wood floors in great room and plush carpeting in the bedrooms. Simply and beautifully furnished, beds were very comfortable and very large chef's kitchen had everything we could have needed to prepare wonderful meals.

Security gate and automatic lighting gave us a sense of security and privacy. Bathrooms and entire house were immaculate, as was the beautiful and relaxing in ground pool with lighting for night swims. What a great way to cool off and relax at the end of the day.

We rented the upstairs two bedroom unit and enjoyed coffee on the lanai in the morning as well as Mai tais in the evening. Beautiful ocean breezes flow through the many windows and the sound of the nearby surf and coqui frogs were a beautiful sound in the evenings. We will probably rent the downstairs unit next time for easier access to the pool area, but loved the layout of the house, the spaciousness and beautiful finishes. Landscaping is also very beautiful.

Booking was very easy and the owner was great about staying in communication and answering questions. Deposit was waiting for us when we returned home. Great location for East side of the island for day trips and volcanoes park explorations. We will definitely stay here the next time we come back!

Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental house with a fabulous pool. We stayed 2 weeks and were thrilled at how well the house worked for our vacation. The location on Kaloli point is perfect for a stay in the South Hilo area. Hawaiian Paradise Park is a beautiful neighborhood with lots of great activities and incredible views. The walk to the ocean is short and the coastline is so cool. We saw whales and turtles right from the shore. The house is as gorgeous as it looks, and by far the cleanest Rental home that we have ever stayed in (we rent at least 2 or 3 times a year). We highly recommend this house for your future vacation.

Real Gem!

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience for our first vacation in Hawaii! From the gated entrance, through the house to the pool in the back everything was wonderful. This spacious, well cared for home and beauty of the garden and pool made us feel so lucky to have found this gem.

The attention to detail, good quality of things in the house, the well equipped kitchen enhanced the beauty of the house, garden and pool.

Melanie and Todd you really know how to treat your guests so expect to hear from us again and be sure we will highly recommend your beautiful home to friends and family!

"Home" in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

I was absolutely delighted from the moment I stepped onto the property. There's a gate at the entrance, before a gravel driveway, to the house. Major bonus points for that security feature, even though it's a lovely, safe neighborhood (my dearest friends live there and can attest to that fact).

It was easy to see the grounds were well cared for, and the house was no different. Living in the tropics, so close to the ocean, it's a lot of work to keep a house in good condition and yet, this one is pristine. The pictures are current, representing the house as is -- beautiful and clean.

Nearly every detail was taken into account. Melanie leaves a guest binder near the front door that gives thoughtful, clear instructions on various aspects of the home that may be helpful during the visit. It's written in a kind, easy manner that immediately made me feel welcome.

Everything I needed for an extended stay was available: washer/dryer, towels (including beach towels), dishwasher, a fully stocked kitchen (equipment, not food ha!), even blankets (it gets a tiny bit chilly at night), and...can't forget...

THE POOL!

Wow, it was gorgeous, in a private, lush setting (I have to comment again on how well maintained this was, too). The only (tiny) downside is that the deck is slippery, so keep your flip flops nearby as you're getting in/out of the pool and walk carefully. But since we were in Hawaii, with nothing but time, nowhere to be, and no rushing, we took our time strolling back to our chairs.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Melanie over the course of a year, she was nothing if not extremely gracious and responsive.

Hilo is my favorite place, besides home, in the world and I was grateful that Melanie and Todd's gave me the feeling and comforts of being home. I'm already looking forward to going back! I highly recommend it!

Mahalo Melanie! ah hui hou

Dream House!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property! We will never stay in a hotel again! I am almost afraid to write how great this home was because then it might be booked when I want to stay next! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this home. Every possible ammenity is at your fingertips. The detail of all the beauty in this home is amazing from the bullnose drywall to the gorgeous wood throughout. I felt completely at home the enitre time. The pool and grounds are immaculate. My family lives in Hilo and we have our family reunion every three years. It was so wonderful to have a home to come back to and relax after the days activities. The kitchen is fantastic and we stayed in Hawaii for a couple weeks so it was nice to be able to cook and not have to eat out the entire time. I felt secure with the fence and gate although everyone around either keeps to themselves or is extremely friendly. There is a nearby path that I ran every morning and leads to the ocean where sea turtles would greet me with a fin up. I really cannot say enough great things about this place and I cannot wait to return.
