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!
Local & family owned.
What a view! Loved the beach + neighborhood. Cozy home. Sad to leave the island. Mahalo!
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.
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.
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.
We were two couples and this was perfect for us. One couple downstairs and one up , so we got some private time if needed. The whole house is lovely but the best place to sit and watch the world is the front lanai. No problems with insects as it is screened and you can watch surfers each morning. It's a quiet spot as the road dead ends further down and at night the skies are worth viewing too. Comfy beds, plenty of extras (beach mats, beach towels, chairs, BBQ ) and everything is clean and well maintained. Good hosts and we will certainly recommend this place. Best yet in Hilo!!!! Thanks
If you want a place that is peaceful, charming, comfortable and in a fantastic spot - this is it!!! Walk across the road to swim, sit on the lanai and watch the world go by, relax in the well appointed living area - the best spot we have found yet in Hilo. The owners are great and most of what you need is provided - beach towels, beach mats, beach chairs, washer/dryer. Beds were comfortable and you can relax and forget about the rest of the world.
We rented this house for my son's graduation from UHH while visiting in Hilo. We rented the entire house for 6 people which was more then adequate space. This is an amazing cottage home that is very well maintained for guests. We had lots of privacy for those that wanted to sleep. There were 2 L shaped couches that made out into beds on the main level which were more comfortable than a regular pull out bed, with plenty of bedding. The best part was the screen covered front porch with the amazing view of Richardson's beach front right across the street. This would be an ideal location for people with little ones. The only suggestions would be, more mirrors, one full length and locks on the bathroom doors. I would definitely rent this house again on future visits. Thank you Michele for opening your home and making our stay so enjoyable!! Victor and Lisa
Perfect for beach lounging and swimming. Lots of fish and marine life to see, including sea turtles right across the street at Richardson's Ocean Beach Park. Recommended activities to see on Hawai'i island: Hawaii Volcanoes Nation Park, Rainbow Falls Waterfall, Hilo Farmers Market on Wednesday and Saturdays, Swimming and surfing at Richardson's Beach!
