Guestbook comments from the manager

The host was really really nice. Our flight was delayed, so we arrived at the house at 9:10pm!!!! The host was here, and kindly gave us a quick intro about the house. We stayed for five nights, 8adults. The house is spacious, new, and nice. Swimming pool is nice as well. We also got free papayas. Super like this place, will definitely stay here again!

Fabulous home for our Hilo visit!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home for our stay in Hilo because not only did it look beautiful and have a pool, but it was just a few minutes drive to anywhere in town. Though we hit beautiful weather that week with only one day of rain, it was so nice to have a gate and garage door opener with access to the house from the comfort of the covered garage! (It can really pour!). The house is beautiful, especially the mango wood floors. It was huge for just three of us, but no complaints! We travelled with my mother, and we all enjoyed the house and pool. We did not cook much, but the kitchen was nice. The house could accommodate a larger group, it even has a formal dining room complete with china dinnerware! A few things were not working, most notable for us was the ice-maker. We bought a bag of ice, problem solved.

I would recommend this property for groups, families, and even just a few travellers who would like to relax in fine yet homey comfort instead of a hotel. A great home base for all of the sightseeing on the Hilo side. Loved it!!!

worth the money

  • 5 of 5

The home is bright, clean, quiet, and includes excellent service. When the lights went out all around us, the streets flooded from an unusual storm, the caretaker, Nicole, was there to make certain that all was well, opening the gate so we could keep our dinner reservation.

Note: the pool is cool, not heated

Close to rainbow falls [15 minutes], Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens [20 minutes], 3 special beaches [20 minutes], downtown Hilo [15 minutes], and Hilo Coffee Mill [30 ? minutes] where Kathy will give you an impromptu tour regarding the processing of their very special coffee.

Great family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

The house was spacious and had plenty of room to spread out. The pool was not heated but that didn't bother kids. The kitchen is adequately stocked for basic cooking.

Beds are comfortable and we appreciated the option of an extra twin bed for kids to have separate beds.

The bathrooms need extra towel bars for hanging towels especially after coming in from the pool.

We would recommend a couple of extra chairs for the table. We had a baby along with no place for her to sit at table. Perhaps a high chair in the garage to bring in when needed.

The portacrib was broken so that needs to be replaced.

All together it was a great place for our family to gather. Close in to Hilo so easy to get into town for groceries and other activities. A nice quiet neighborhood.

Fun place, could be amazing.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our stay was lovely. All of the amenities that were listed were there except the jets in the master tub did not work. It was a wonderful location close to town but still very private.

However, it would not take much to make this place go from nice to outstanding. Minor updates and fixes would make the difference. We replaced all of the batteries in the clocks and remotes. The center bathroom flooded from a poorly designed style. The house had a fireplace (can't use), tiki torches, can't light, hot tub and sauna don't work and no option to have them do so. Weird things like 3 Light switches for every light, a tv in the bathroom(doesn't work and gets hit easily by the shower door)

Pleased with my stay but wouldn't fight to go back without updates.

Short Trip

  • 5 of 5

For all of us in our party, this was our first trip to Hawaii, and the house alone made the trip worth it. It has an incredible view of Hilo Bay, and is a short drive from town. You are close enough to anything you need, and far enough that you could just "get away from it all". It was enough room for our entire 6-person party, and we all felt like we had our own space.

The rental was a hair pricey, I'll admit, and if we were staying longer, we probably would have needed to stay somewhere else. However, if we save up the money to come again, we will definitely plan to stay here if we can!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental for our family of 6. The home is remarkably maintained and the view is tremendous. The extra cost per person made it a bit pricier than we had hoped but it was a great house.
