Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bath Cottage right across the beach!

Charming beach cottage with commanding ocean view of the best beach on the east side of Hawaii! Waiuli (Richardsons Beach) is the best for swimming, surfing, and snorkeling. What's the best thing about it? It's right across the street! Grab a mask and snorkel (there's plenty of fun beach gear at the house to use!) and go explore the cove! Wish to just relax and lay in the shade? There's a great area behind the house to hang out or bbq while watching the ocean. Perfect for families, groups or a nice couple get-away!

We loved sitting in the screened front porch and appreciated all the little things made available in the home to make our vacation very enjoyable.

I would give this place 5 stars if there was ac and a stove but hilo was beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

We were right across from a beautiful beach and the owners let me have a late check out which was great because our plane left at 920 pm. There was a jungle like backyard with a small pond in the back which was a plus. The land had papaya trees and pineapples growing from the ground. The place was spacious and even had a backyard shower. I would definitely consider this place again. My family and I did not want to leave

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our entire stay from booking to checkout was wonderful. Michelle ensured we had everything we needed for a relaxing family vacation and was quick to reply to any questions we had about the house or area. The house was comfortable and had all of the necessary amenities for a carefree week in Hawaii. If you are staying in Hilo it is the perfect location. Right on the beach, in one of the sunniest areas of town and a few minutes drive to downtown. We will be back!

Best tropical location

  • 5 of 5

To be able to walk across the street and go for a swim and snorkel at the best beach for viewing tropical fish is worth millions! All in a restful and beautifully remodeled plantation house set in its own tropical garden and with a delightful screened lanai. Very convenient and well worth a visit.

Great place for a vacation in Hilo

  • 5 of 5

Richardson beach is a wonderful place for a vacation in Hilo. Interesting beach and high quality restaurants nearby. Waiuli Beach Cottage is a wonderful property: lots of room, nice kitchen. We would certainly stay here again.

The house was nice and in the area that I wanted to be, but.....

  • 3 of 5

House was clean and nice - but, had a very odd lay-out. The second bedroom/bath were in the basement.

Main floor had VERY LOW entrances into the bathroom - the doorways could NOT have been 6' tall - I am 6'2" and about knocked myself out!

No info available in the house of TV or where things were, or any info of local amenities.

Guess I just expected more and a lot more comfortable for the price.
