A wonderful place to set up home-base for an amazing trip!

  • 5 of 5

This home provided everything we needed from a central location to the different areas we wanted to visit, to quiet, lush serenity, to good quiet roads to run on. The home was well decorated and felt welcoming. All of our needs were met as far as appliances, ceiling fans coupled w/box fans to combat the heat....plenty of options for entertainment w/TV and DVD's. Even having people staying in the unit above us was very quiet and not a bother. We would definitely stay here again....great for couples or families!

Dear Liz and Jason,

Thank you very much for sharing your fabulous home with us. It was perfect.

We expected the best from your photos and emails, and it was even better than best.

Plus, the two of you made things so very easy for us.

Your place is beautiful. It was so very clean, spacious, and had all the comforts of home.

We had a wonderful time and truly hope to have the opportunity to stay again in the future.

Thank you again for your hospitality and may God bless you both.

Dale and Stephanie

We had a wonderful time staying at this place. We were there for a week with another couple enjoying the Merrie Monarch festival and exploring the big island. The place was beautiful and quiet, we really enjoyed it and would definitely stay there again.

Spent a few days here with a couple of friends for the price and the location, but the house was far and above our expectations! Comfortable beds, a well stocked kitchen, and a great home-y atmosphere made it the perfect place to come home to after a couple long days of hiking and exploration. It's a short drive from the airport and a great home base for exploring the Hilo side of the island. Communication was easy going and Liz and Jason were very nice about being flexible for our check in/out times. Would definitely stay here again!

A Must Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Retreat for 3 days, and it was TRULY like being at home. There was NOTHING that we needed that was not in the condo....just like being at home. The communications with Liz,the Owner, was excellent and she provided ALL the information necessary for us to have a very pleasant and enjoyable stay. The location is great....only a few miles from stores, etc. Everything was easy to find and driving was very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the Hilo Farmers Market on Saturday and had lunch at Cafe' was delicious. The condo was very spacious and comfortable....exactly as advertised and MORE! We have stayed in several rentals during our travels and this is the BEST rental that we have rented. I would highly recommend this won't be disappointed!
