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.

Comfortable, good for our family of 5 adults.
We were displaced when our hotel in Volcano National Park closed due to earthquakes and volcanoes. Fortunately, we found Ohana Cottage. The owner deserves an A+ for speedy communication! This property is affordable , has comfortable beds, all the necessities and a washer & dryer. This property is not luxe and a little worn, but clean and adequate. Covered parking is a nice plus in this super-rainy climate. Unlike some VRBOs, no condiments or coffee in the cupboards, so be sure to bring your own. Bonus, there’s a fabulous lychee tree loaded with fruit.
Good Budget Option for Helo
Centrally located, clean, roomy. Everything worked well. We made good use of the full kitchen & laundry facilities. A/C in bedrooms but fan only in living room & Kitchen areas. This was a good budget option for Hilo.
Good family place to stay
The location was great, in town but yet quiet. It was good having air conditioners in the bedrooms. Kitchen was good too. Having cooking oil available was something I didn't think about when we were picking up groceries. That was a great plus! Thank you for letting us stay there! Mahalo!
Great location perfect for small family or volleyball team as ours was!!
This is the second time I have stayed with Val at one of her rentals and as always it was a great experience. Had a minor hiccup with one of the bedroom TVs not working and a bedroom doorknob not operating properly. Both were handled the very next day at our convenience and by a polite upstanding gentlemen who is her husband. Perfect little place for our team members who didn’t have family or friends to stay with. Good central location to everything and Val is the best to work with. She understands locals and things that may come up and works it out to the best of her ability. The property is a little old but has upgraded appliances and interior. Very homey feel. Overall would definitely recommend this property!!!
Good value for stand-alone house with quiet privacy.
Location made travel easy, neighborhood was quiet (except for the nightly coqui frogs chirping, which are ubiquitous in Hilo). Our family appreciated the two bedrooms and large living room to relax after daily outings and kitchen and laundry appliances also made visit comfortable and homey.
Nice place to stay in Hilo
I thought the cottage was nice. We stayed one night and it was comfortable. The cottage was clean, roomy for four adults and centrally located in Hilo. TV worked well.
