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 :)

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.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view, and comfortable. We were unable to close the lock box when we were leaving but the friendly manager helped us. We enjoyed the great resterant across the street. It was the best.

Awesome!

My two friends and I highly recommend this property for your stay in the Hilo area. The condo is superbly furnished, very comfortable, and well stocked with a stunning view of the beach, which is only a few steps from the complex. We checked out several beaches in the area and this was by far the best one. We swam with turtles nearly every day. There are beach toys, umbrellas, extra chairs and bedding, lots of kitchen supplies, extras in the bathroom, and much more. Each room has a fan and there are lots of windows with screens for letting in a breeze. The balcony is large enough to sleep on (after being in places with tiny balconies). One of the most interesting features is the use of mirrors to maximize the view! This place is really special. We would come back here in a heart beat. There is a pay washer and dryer on each floor, and they recycle, which we were happy about. We loved the way the place is decorated. It is clean, well arranged and the beds are very comfortable. The owners ask that you not use the loft, so don't plan on that space being available. The kitchen is really small, but as long as only one person at a time is using it, it works just fine. The refrigerator, dishwasher and stove all appear to be new. The frig even has an icemaker. They furnish laundry baskets, plenty of beach towels and bedding. Wonderful place!

Enchanting condo for a Hilo getaway

  • 5 of 5

Hey Terry,

We loved the condo. It was all I had hoped it would be. The turtles were enchanting!

If I return (or rather when), I'll give you a call. I think Spencer will enjoy attending the University in Hilo.

All was delightful. Mahalo again. ALOHA!! <3

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented this condo for an extended period for the last two summers. It's perfect! You wake go to sleep to the sounds of Pacific waves. The balcony and master bedroom offer beautiful views of the lagoon. The front view provides Pu'u O'o vent, Mauna Loa, and Mauna Kea. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, there are coolers, chairs, towels, and swim gear for the beach, and there's a bus stop right in front of the condo if you opt to not rent a car. The protected lagoon offers safe swimming and snorkeling with turtle sightings at lower tides.
