Turtles on your doorstep

  • 5 of 5

The place was fantastic, well equipped and you can swim with turtles on the doorstep! The view is fabulous and Terry was great and very easy to deal with. We stayed with our daughter who was 3 and can highly recommend as a great base for those wanting to explore the Hilo side of the island.

Loved, loved, loved!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time on our recent Big Island trip. We stayed 3 days in Kona and 3 days in Hilo. We especially loved this Hilo condo and wish we would've stayed here the whole time! The condo is clean and the care that is placed here by the owners is so apparent. Wonderfully decorated. Amazing view!

We sat on our lanai each morning and had coffee and saw whales every day!! Our last day we saw 2 schools of dolphins within eyeshot but were much easier to see through the binoculars the owners provided in the room. We went next door (literally!) to Carlsmith Beach Park and played with what appear to be resident turtles. The locals said they have been named, Ona and Radar. You can't touch them but that doesn't prevent them from swimming right up to you!

We didn't get around to using the pool due to all of our extracurricular activities but dipped our toes and seemed like it would've been inviting. We didn't lack for anything in the condo and remarked that if we ever bought a condo in Hawaii, it'd be this one. :-) Mahalo!!

Fantastic Condo in Hilo!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, and I were fortunate to stay in this beautiful condo in Hilo for 5 days in February 2017. The home is beautifully decorated with the most amazing view!! The raised bed in the master bedroom and the mirrors allow for such a beautiful ocean view from the master bedroom. We loved sitting on the lanai and saw whales everyday!! Terry is very easy to work with and has lots of extras, such as binoculars, to ensure a special vacation. The location is perfect, it is close to so many sites that it allows you to see the whole island. We were able to visit Akaka Falls, Rainbow Falls, Volcano Park, Pana'ewa Rainforest Zoo, Parker Ranch, Stargazing and sunset at Mauna Kea Visitor Station, Hapuna Beach to name a few. I highly recommend this great home while visiting the big island!!

Most peaceful vacation rental ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I were in Hilo for our anniversary and rented this Penthouse condo! This place was awesome, it was spotless, well stocked, the bed was SUPER comfortable, we slept with the window open every night, to the sounds of waves and possibly frogs? It was the best sleep we both had in years!!! I didn't want to leave. We saw whales every morning and evening right off our lanai, great view of the bay! And the snorkeling can't be beat for especially someone who isn't a real "daredevil" but good enough for someone who is. (me and my husband) There were ton of fish and we would go out first thing every morning and snorkel almost had the area to our selves. It is really convenient to town, a great location!!!

We got our security deposit back before we even got home which in itself is amazing :)

Thanks :)

Wonderful Condo

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was great. Well stocked, clean, well decorated and conveniently located. The park and beach are right out the back door. Turtles in the cove and whales sightings almost daily from the lanai. We used the pool most days and really enjoyed the convenience and security. The maintenance man, Othon, was extremely helpful. We will be back, but next time it will be for at least a month.

Spectacular View

  • 4 of 5

Lovely condo, spectacular view from the porch (spent a lot of time sitting out there), and great location. Loved the parks all around the area. Especially the ones with the turtles that seem totally at ease with the swimmers. Took a lot of photos of them.

Just our observation/opinion, but the kitchen was tiny. Not really a big issue as we ate out almost every night. Also there were no curtains on the bedroom window. We easily made a temporary fix ourselves, but others may be a bit put off by this.

We called Terry Schoneberg, the rental broker, a couple times and he was always very friendly and helpful.

We highly recommend this place, especially to anyone who would like to swim with the turtles.
