Property condition


  • Liked: Property conditions & facilities

Our room has an ocean view - really loved it. But somehow we feel the house was not very well maintained. We can imagine this was a well decorated house and a great place to stay for vacation. But now it feels old and, since it’s always very humid in Hilo during this season, our stay wasn’t super comfortable.

Convenient base for Hilo Adventures

The room we booked was basic and dated but we knew that when we booked and looked for cheaper places to stay. The bed was comfortable and there was adequate space for me and my husband for a few days, but the weather was more rainy than we expected and humid so we spent more time in it than planned. The coffee machine supplies were sparse but we weren't relying on that too much. The TV was functional but dated and the owner's father helped explain to us how to use it. There was wifi which was good and the owner sent us the password via text along with check in codes etc on the day we arrived. We liked that it was the top of a hill (so better if you have a car rental) as it meant you could see the sea and look down into Hilo. Overall it was only a few minutes drive down into downtown Hilo. The only negative was there was no window covering on the lovely modern bathroom. My husband said I shouldn't worry as the room backed onto a back garden where probably no-one goes, but on one day I was showering midday (so humid so had 2 to 3 showers a day) and at that point someone was mowing the back lawn, so I had to be discreet getting out of the shower! I managed but some people might not like the lack of privacy. Overall it was a good base for our adventures on the Hilo side of the Island - downtown Hilo shops, farmers market, Rainbow Falls, Akaka Falls and Botanical Gardens, Boiling pots and Caves and the Zoo. We enjoyed food at Tina's and Pineapples in town and the Conscious Cafe.

    5/5 Excellent

      Friendly with great charm

      Greeted by an amazingly friendly and helpful person who wanted to ensure I had a great stay. It is an older place but has a lot of charm. The room I had was simple but perfect for me with a great view out to Hilo harbour and airport in the distance. A fantastic place to stay if big hotels are not your thing. Maybe not a romantic couples destination but great for solo or couples who don't want the big hotel experience. Can be a little noisy at night with all the local fauna wanting to be heard but a nice experience. I would happily stay here again.
