Guestbook comments from the manager

My son and I really enjoyed staying at this condo. The unit was so homey and comfortable. Aside from the location of the condo itself, you do a great job managing it ; your cleaning stuff does a topnotch job keeping the property super clean and well-stocked (and you almost never hear this from me, as I am extremely picky when it comes to "cleanness") ; the neighbors in the building I ran across were all nice and friendly (one of the ladies from the same floor even showed me where the recycle bin is when I was trying to figure out), and I only have one thing to say to you: thank you and we will definitely call you again should we decide to go back to Hilo for another vacation!

P.S. This email sounds like one of those corny reviews on a travel site, but I simply wanted to send you my personal words of appreciation :)

Hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Breath taking views from the lanai and master bedroom! Condo was well equipped, had everything that we needed. Carlsmith Park next door had the best snorkeling, we saw more turtles than we can count and enjoyed both low and high tides!!

We will be back!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, great location, well-appointed. We really enjoyed our stay here. Would certainly recommend to friends and family looking to stay in the area. We liked that it's close to Hilo, but not right in town. Loved being right on Carlsmith and just up from Richardson Beach Park (even better!).

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

what a comfortable place with a great view out the back and a very well appointed apartment. Loved the spices, cooler and kitchen were so comfortable. Cocktails on the lanai and comfortable bed. Only minor inconvenience was the occasional car noise from the street had us keep the bedroom window closed at night and it got a little warm. We got over that by the second night and fell in love with the place.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review. Overhead fan should keep it cool. Ocean breezes normally kick in except for a few days a year when trade winds stop. We strive to make it the ultimate place for your Hilo adventure.

Gorgeous condo in a great position

  • 5 of 5

I love this condo, the building might not look like much but you walk into the condo and feel like you're in another world. It's well decorated and furnished with great appliances. The view is as shown in photos but better in person. The large Lanai with high table and chairs were wonderful.

Carlsmith beach park is fantastic, loved having it in my 'backyard' and indeed swam with a very friendly sea turtle on a couple of occasions. The condo pool is also great, nice water temp and lovely to lay by when the weather was right. There seemed to be a mice community of resident neighbours. As with everywhere around Hilo the coqui frogs serenade you nightly although the rooster somewhere over the road was less welcome.

When I needed assistance early on the property manager Terry was responsive and helpful.

There's a shop for coffee and snacks a few minutes drive down the road (Keaukaha General Store) where the aloha is plentiful. Otherwise it's maybe 10 min drive into Hilo which was never onerous and I always found parking so I could happily wander around. Of course also easy drive to many other tourist spots.

I would not hesitate to stay here again! Mahalo.
