Watching a whale from my bed

  • 5 of 5

This property is all about the amazing view and location. The views from the lanai and master bedroom are beautiful. My favorite was sitting on the bed in the master bedroom looking out. The bed is raised so you get a clear view. I got to watch a whale in the bay repeatedly lift up and slap its tail. It was really neat.

The condo is right next door to a beach area so it is easy to just walk next door when you want to go over. From the room it is also fun to watch the people snorkeling and boogie boarding.

We enjoyed our stay in Hilo. Great having the park next door for a quick swim after a busy day. Location worked well for us with good access to all amenities and central for exploring the Hilo side of the island. Condo was comfortable and definitely served our purpose. Thanks

Nice condo

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Mauna Loa Shores 2 other times and this is the best unit by far. Very comfortable and great views. I love the beach park next door.

I would recommend this unit.

A Hilo Gem

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Big Island of Hawaii so we decided to split our week between Hilo and Kona. The first thing I noticed when searching for a condo in Hilo was the lack of large, glitzy complexes like we were used to from our trips to Maui. I chose MaunaLoa Shores #710 based solely on the views and the reviews. And we loved it!!! The view is 100 times better than the photos I saw, the lagoons are peaceful and fun to explore, and the lush jungle is amazing. The condo itself is clean and comfortable and secure. Loved the raised bed and the large bedroom window. We spend most of the time out on the lanai when vacationing so I put a lot of emphasis on that feature when looking for a condo. The lanai of MaunaLoa Shores did not disappoint. It is spacious with wonderful and comfortable furniture. It is very private and takes advantage of the breathtaking view in a unique way. Reserved parking is a huge plus and of course, the elevators. And not to forget to mention the volcano views from the front door. Finally, the location is perfect: a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of Hilo but close to the road to the Volcano National Park and a straight shot to the lovely little town of Hilo and the shops and restaurants. Terry, the property manager, is quick to respond to questions and has a lot of information and recommendations. Speaking of recommendations....can I recommend MaunaLoa Shoes #710 to you? Absolutely!

Nice condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very clean and in a great location. The kitchen was well stocked and even the bathroom had some extras (shampoo, basic medicines) if needed. It was very quiet and had a beautiful view of the cove that was just a few minutes walk away where we snorkeled with the equipment that was provided in the condo. Great binder with restaurant and activity suggestions. Would definitely stay again when in Hilo!
