This condo is very well done and was perfect for us. From the moment we walked in, we were impressed. Fresh flowers on the table, updated nicely and very clean. Kitchen is well stocked with matching plates and silverware. This is a well taken care of unit and very relaxing to sit on the lanai overlooking the water. We enjoyed the quiet and relaxing time here, the geckos on the lanai and snorkeling right out the back door. Did I mention the turtles? And the elevator was a huge plus in getting luggage and groceries in. We love this place and definitely recommend it!

Loved our stay
An excellent place to stay, near Hilo and beside a beautiful ocean lagoon. Comes with a very well equipped kitchen, and a comfortable bed where we were lulled to sleep by the song of coqui frogs. All the amenities were of very good quality, with lots of thoughtful details. We'll stay here again when we visit Hilo!
Nice condo but missing information in some area and activities not available
The condo was great many small attention were included but the general cleanliness could have been better. The condo is located beside a public park with an easy access for swimming and snorkeling. Sea turtles were present in the bay everyday. Many major area are closed on Hilo side of big island; the east point (champagne pond & lighthouse) gone since last eruption in 2018, the observatory Mauna Kea was blocked by protesters for about 3 months and the rainbow falls trails was also closed, no access to the ponds. However the tropical garden, the Kilauea, the chain of craters were fantastic.
I send a list of all open activities to each guest. I wish you would have told me about any cleaning issues, we take GREAT pride in making sure the condo is IMMACULATE, so if there was something not up to par, I a just a phone call away :)
GREAT place - if you dont need AC!
I agree with all of the other reviews. We enjoyed the place, it was perfect for our stay. I love that its right next door to Carlsmith Beach park. We enjoyed the rocky lagoons. Our morning views were awesome. We didnt use the pool, but it was nice that it was there. My only issue was that it was in the 90s during our stay and we did not realize that there was no air conditioning, only fans. After a full day of travel and heat with 90% humidity, imagine my surprise when I walked in and the windows and screen door were open, only to realize there was no AC. We did make due with the ceiling fans and a couple of portable fans, but leaving the windows open at night made it a bit noisy with the road being right outside. The first two nights were tolerable but our 3rd night was pretty miserable. I did not know to look specifically for AC in the description and I had to read pretty far in on other reviews to see anyone else say something about no AC. We use VRBO quite a bit so it's never been an issue, but we will definitely be aware in the future. Outside of this, there were plenty of amenities, parking was easy, location was pretty central. Restaurant suggestions were great. Thanks for all of the recommendations!
A Gem for two
This was a great experience. The decor in this unit is superior, all that one could want was provided in the beautifully upgraded kitchen. Being welcomed by the owner on our arrival was great, and the Manager was immediately responsive to our questions. A wonderful location for two people to be close to all the amazing sites in Hilo, and especially the coast park right out your back door! Definitely will return when next in Hilo, if it is available.
Mauvais rapport qualité-prix (sauf pour les tortues)
L’intérieur du condo est vieillot, mais assez propre (tapis pue la moisissures et filtre à eau n’est pas changé malgré le témoin rouge). L’immeuble (parties communes) est mal entretenu. Impossible de faire du lavage tellement l’odeur est mauvaise dans la buanderie (payante). Rideaux non occultants dans la chambre et aucun rideau dans le salon pour divan-lit. Condo fait pour 2 pas plus (ex.: 2 chaises sur balcon, pas de rideau pour divan-lit). Pas de BBQ, de lave-vaisselle et de laveuse-sécheuse.
En comparaison aux autres locations, nous avons trouvé cher ce condo pour ce qu’il offre. 3 seuls points positifs: les tortues, le bouquet d’accueil et la proximité de l’aéroport. De plus, en comparaison aux autres villes et îles d’Hawaii, Hilo est sans intérêt et il y fait rarement beau.
We strive to have the condo beautiful, and immaculate. just look at our other reviews. To each his own.. Hilo is a magical fantastic destination with so much to see and do and the condo is fantastic.
