“We were as comfortable here as we are in our own home.”
Reviewed 23 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Clean, comfortable, kitchen furnished with everything you need, close to town and restaurants. Owner a long time, reputable community member and very responsive to our needs. We were pleasantly surprised with a bowl of various fruits, Hawaiian water and the best cookies in Hawaii. Only one minor issue, the nightly chorus of crickets and coqui frogs took a little getting used to. However, definitely our first lodging choice for future trips.

We are very happy you enjoyed your visit. Being a Realtor for over 20 years I learned the value of repeat business. We want our guests 100% satisfied and know they will come back even years later. I once bought and sold the same house three times for my clients. We value long term relationships. Thanks and Aloha.

“Home away from home!”

Loved our stay here. The apartment was definitely roomy enough for us to relax after sight seeing. We could listen to the creek and the frogs in the evenings.

The kitchen well appointed for cooking meals.

The bathroom set up is great as there is only 1 tub/shower with the master bath - but is set up with an adjoining 1/2 bath off the hallway. This way the sink/toilet is available when someone is taking a shower.

The assigned parking in the dedicated parking lot is a big plus!. One thing to note is there are two sets of stairs to get to the apartment which is something to keep in mind when toting luggage.

The property owner was great to work with. Called us on arrival to ensure everything was as expected and to see if we needed anything and made himself available for any questions we had.

Otherwise we loved our stay and would rent again if we are back in Hilo

“clean, comfortable, well-located, well-appointed Hilo apartment”

This was the perfect home from which to experience the activities in and around Hilo. The apartment has numerous artistic touches, making it enjoyable to be there. Kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms were clean and more than adequate, and the view is green and lush. The owners were exceptionally helpful. The location is a 5 minute drive from most Hilo destinations.

We found the property to be very neat and clean upon arrival. The place is decorated and furnished in very good taste. The owner and his daughter were very helpful and were easy to contact. The rental unit has an assigned parking. Therefore, we did not have to waste time looking for parking. We have nothing adverse to say.

“A totally comfortable, convenient home away from home!”
Reviewed 31 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

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!
