About The Owner

My husband and I travel frequently between Hilo and Oahu. I manage a community center in the town I grew up in and my husband manages the publication department for the local newspaper. We enjoy bodysurfing, ziplining, picnic bbqs, hanging out with our dogs and trying new foods. We're friendly and easy to get along with so please don't hesitate to ask questions if you want recommendations or if there's something that we can address during your stay. We're grateful for the opportunity to host you during your Hawaii island vacation.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Why The Owner chose Hilo

We love our Leilani street plantation houses for their charm and proximity to all that Hilo has to offer.

"Old Hawaii!"

  • 5 of 5

This small house is from maybe the 1930"s. It is well maintained and comfortable. The bed was very good providing a good nights sleep. We used the kitchen primarily for breakfast but is able to service any meal or snacks. Location is great, easy to get where ever you might want to go in Hilo or surrounding area.

Perfect location for our purposes

  • 4 of 5

My daughter was starting school at UH Hilo and we decided to make it a mini vacation and have my three other kids (ages12-22) join us. That would have required getting two hotel rooms so I figured I give renting a home would be worth a try. This little plantation style house was in the perfect location, only 5-10minutes from the campus, airport, and shopping mall, as well as beaches and local restaurants. The house itself was perfectly adequate - only a few minor issues like the idiosyncratic kitchen faucet and some ants as noted in other reviews. The house gets pretty hot but the ac's in the bedroom worked well enough and helped drown out the sounds of the coqui frogs, which weren't really that bad. The love seat is a bit small for the sixth person (my daughter), but overall we were happy with the experience and would stay there again if the whole lot of us were to travel to Hilo together.

It was super private , relaxing , great location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect I even did laundry .

The only thing that I had to get used to was the smell , but I take my Doterra diffuser wherever I go so I used it and it was better

But it smelled weird otherwise

There was already trash out in the trash can by laundry area and that scared me to think I was in someone's house so I got scared a little the first day lol

After that every thing was great

PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a couple of times and will definitely be willing to stay here again! It has the perfect location and it is close to everything.

The house was very "homey" and comfortable. Two bedrooms, living room, full kitchen, one bath was very comfortable for four adults. Stayed in the house in January 2017 and it was very cold in the mornings, so the AC wasn't used as much. June 2017 it was much warmer and the AC was perfect to keep us cool in the evening.

The house is full stocked with everything we needed. Small cooler, beach chairs/mats, and snorkels were perfect for all of our beach runs. The owner was super sweet and just a call or text away when we needed ideas on where to adventure off to next.

Target, Walmart, Safeway, and the Mall are just minutes away. Big Island Candies is the next street over. Trust me this is the perfect location when staying in Hilo! We can't wait to go back!
