We stayed one month (Dec-Jan) in this comfortable and tastefully decorated apartment and we loved it! Everything was spotlessly clean as we moved in. The kitchen is well equipped and has a large refrigerator, everything you need can be found. On our arrival there was fresh fruit, wonderful macadamia nuts and other goodies, cold water and ice – very thoughtful. The screened in patio room next to the master bedroom/living room quickly became our favorite spot for meals. A bonus is that nobody is looking in on you, but there are beautiful views of lush, tropical greenery right outside to enjoy and down below a rushing river. In the morning you listen to birdsong and in the evening the frogs keep you company for a while.
The apartment feels airy and fresh at all times. There is no A/C but plenty of fans, although we never used them since the apartment was comfortably cool anyway when we were there. Good screens keep insects out. Internet connection is stable and reliable; TV too. The apartment complex is well maintained and very quiet. The coin laundry is a few steps away.
The location is great with downtown and Farmer´s market a comfortable 10-12 minute walk from the apartment. Access to major roads is quick and easy and there is convenient parking on the premises.
The owner and his daughter were most helpful and accommodating and we would recommend this to anyone who wants a comfortable place to stay while enjoying Hilo and the whole island. For us it really became home away from home and we will gladly come back!
