Quaint, comfortable and clean.

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay, and would definitely stay here again. The property owner was very helpful in getting me set up on short notice. I was traveling for work and initially had some issues with the wi-fi, but the property manager quickly tended to the problem and was very kind in checking back in to make sure that everything was working. The shops and restaurants in walking distance are cute, but know that everything shuts down by 6pm so if you arrive later in the day you will probably want to either stop by a market on the way in or plan to drive into Hilo for dinner (about 20 miles.) This is a great place to stay for one or two people as a quiet get-away. The bed and the pull out sofa are separated by heavy drapes, and there are two full (very nice) bathrooms, so I can see this being a great place for a family or group of 4 that want a place to sleep but will spend a lot of time out exploring as well.

Nice property but not cleaned

  • 2 of 5

The property is nice, but the sofa bed was not cleaned, had crumbs, key was not in lockbox and we had to call the property manager. Wifi was very bad.

Owner's Response: I will apologize again as I did on the phone with you for the cleaners lack of attention to detail. Since your stay a new cleaning team has been cleaning and now with two cleaners there will be no more areas missed during cleaning. A checks and balances system. The wifi extenders were replaced after your stay and a service call from time warner cable insured wifi was working efficiently, as we have many business travelers stay at our properties for extended periods of time. I am glad that Eric our property manager responded promptly and personally cleaned the areas missed by the previous cleaner so that your stay would be comfortable and as expected. Our guests satisfaction and having a wonderful stay is our number one priority.

Great hospitality & home, questionable neighbors

  • 3 of 5

The cottage we stayed in was well kept. The view was a great way to open your eyes in the morning. Also, Ronni was easy to communicate with by email and very pleasant/hospitable.

There was one cloud for the stay and a pretty big one at that: an early morning domestic argument at one of the neighboring cottages or home. Doors slamming, screaming insults, and a car barreling out of the drive. It certainly could have been worse, but it still soured the location for me. Hopefully it's just a fluke and not a permanent resident...

Owner's Response: So glad you loved Honomu and the house! We only do nightly rentals so it sounds as if the other guest may have had an argument. We are always getting reviews of how quiet and peaceful the location is and how you can hear the birds and the ocean waves at night. We would love to have you as a repeat guest. Mahalo

Quiet and beautiful...

  • 5 of 5

First impression was shocked! For the low price it had a great view of the ocean, and away from the madness in town (didn't know it was Merrie Monarch). The property manager Eric was nice and very reponsive to our needs, mahalo! Our very first trip to Hawaii and this cozy place made it feel like home!!! Mahalo!!!!! Brett, Amanda, Christopher

Beautiful, clean, comfortable 1 bd/2 ba cottage near 'Akaka Falls

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our two-night stay in this very clean, bright, and airy vacation cottage. Everything was exactly as described in the VRBO listing. I found the owner and property manager to be friendly, easy to reach by phone, and easy to work with.

This cottage and another identical cottage are located on the grounds of the owner's own home; all share the same common driveway. This unit is the one in the far back corner of the lot. It overlooks the owner's green, beautifully maintained yard and is backed by a stand of trees. For the record, I was perfectly delighted by the ocean view in the distance (~a mile away, as the bird flies), framed by greenery. I consider myself to be a very light sleeper, but enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the frogs; by the middle of the night, it was completely quiet.

The location is about 15 minutes north of Hilo, in the tiny town of Honomu. We enjoyed the quick morning walk to Hilo Shark's Coffee Shop. The Honomu park was another minute away, with an enormous pair of banyan trees and a sweet little playground for our two-year-old. The location is great for those who want to "live like a local" in a quaint community on the wet side of the island. (Although others may prefer the sun and beaches of the Kona side, we prefer the lush greenery, waterfalls, and less-touristy Hilo side.) Nearby are the Botanical Gardens and 'Akaka Falls, both of which are gorgeous. In downtown Hilo, we picked up groceries at both Abundant Life natural food store and Island Naturals. We also got a tasty dinner to-go from Sambat's Fresh Thai restaurant. For reference, we also enjoyed a marvelous day at the Ahalanui Hot Pond and Lava Trees State Park in the Puna district, which was a little over an hour drive each way.

We loved the gorgeous bathrooms (plural!) and the comfortable bed. As promised, additional linens and blankets were provided, but we didn't need them. I agree with the previous reviewers who stated that the kitchenette is best for very simple meals, rather than full-blown cooking. (Mainly because the small bar sink is best-suited to simple clean-up tasks.) Outside on the lanai is a nice eating area (as shown in the photos in the listing). A gas grill is provided, as is a hot tub in a common area located near the other cottage, but we didn't end up using those.

I recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a clean, comfy place to stay in beautiful surroundings north of Hilo (if they're OK with a little kitchenette).
