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 :)

Oceanfront Hilo, Fantastic Condo, Swim with the Sea Turtles

Excellent condo. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean. It was exceptionally well stocked with the essentials and several extra nice touches. The location is right on the beach, perfect for a morning swim. The quiet neighborhood and up front reserved parking was icing on the cake. The reservation and check in and out process was clear and easy.

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located next to a beautiful beach and park. The condo is well equipped and nicely furnished. We were greeted and everything was explained with suggestions on where to go. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo and exporing the Hilo area.

A great 16 nights...

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 16 night stay here in January 2017. Too bad it wasn't 66 nights. The location was perfect....Close to town but not too close. Lots of beaches close by without having to drive.

The condo had everything we needed and more. We hope to stay here again when we come back to Hilo.

Nice, tidy, clean, roomy condo with balcony and great view of ocean! Excellent kitchen!

  • 4 of 5

I am late in writing this review because I came back with a coId. I want to let others know what a great time we had using this condo. I also really appreciated the care and service I received from Terry, the manager. There were a few minor inconveniences and Terry took care of them immediately. This is the first time I have used VRBO and I have had a very positive experience (I also rented 2 other places via VRBO for this trip).

We got to meet some of the other residents and they were all friendly and helpful. On our floor, the washer worked well but the dryer didn't so we had to use a dryer from another floor to finish our laundry. The prices to use the laundry facilities were very reasonable. Bring quarters. The bathroom was a little small and could have used an exhaust fan. All the other rooms were very comfortable. The kitchen was the best! Enough room to move and well stocked.

We ate our breakfasts and had our Happy Hours on the balcony. The view of the ocean is excellent. On 2 of the mornings, we actually got to see some whales passing by.

The bay in back of the condo is very beautiful. We visited twice and both times got to see the turtles wading close by. It is a very rocky area, so wear your beach shoes if you are wanting to swim with the turtles.

One tip: We had difficulties with the cable TV. After two days of calling Oceanic, we figured out that the blue power icon on the cable box needs to be on before the TV will work properly.

All in all, we had a great time using this condo.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Every thing you need to have a great stay is here. The condo has all the water toys and beach essentials you need to have a great time. Guide books, books to read and lots more. The kitchen is well equipped. Lots of extras. Have you stayed at a condo where the housekeepers clean out every thing from the kitchen, well here the essentials are left so it is a joy to cook. Go visit Radar the turtle down at the beach.

Fantastic !!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic place. One bedroom, one bathroom, kitchen, living room and balcony. Well-decorated and well-equipped! The owner has thought every little thing that one might need and stocked up... including ear buds haha. The lagoon is right behind the apartment. There are two turtles which are permanent residents of the lagoon. They are friendly and come to you when you are in the water. Seafood restaurant right in front of the apartment. Our family absolutely loved it here.
