About Val F

.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.

Val F purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Val F chose Hawaii

The Kaiwiki house is very special to us. We were the first family on the street to rebuild and renovate, now our neighbors have followed suit. It's our Hilo diamond in the rough.

What makes this cottage unique

There is wide, open park with avacado, ginger, strawberry guava that is perfect for a morning walk and ideal for the kids to play ball, run around, or fly a kite. Just beyond the park is a short path to a swimming hole and waterfall.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your wonderful place with us. The kids had an awesome time & it helped that there were TVs in each room on those rainy days. your book collection made visits to the beach even more relaxing. And as a family of 6, we couldn't have asked for a better place for the price. We would definitely return and stay at your rental again.

Three C's: Convenient, Comfortable and Clean

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo Val. We had a great stay at the Kaiwiki house which was conveniently located just 5 min. drive outside of Hilo town. Except for the frogs and the roosters, it was a quiet neighborhood and comfortable. After reading some of the reviews, I initially had some concerns but the house was very clean with a new carpet. The TV and air conditioners in every bedroom was also a bonus.

My only suggestion would be to place more hooks near the bathroom to hang things and possibly consider couple grab bars in the shower for elderly people.

All in all, it was a good place to stay and I would definitely recommend it other traveling to Hilo.

Convenient, comfortable and family friendly.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for luxury and expensive this is not the place for you. If you want value, clean and comfortable in a friendly neighborhood this is your spot. Val has made a pleasant place for a family get together. She even has a closet with camping chairs to take to the beach, a snorkel set, beach mat and towels and even an ice chest so you can take drinks and eats with you.
