Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to Hilo for the weekend to visit my mom before we move back to the mainland. When we walked into the house we were very happy. My wife said I could live here. It was reasonably priced and while the outside of the house is dated the inside was very clean and comfortable. It looked exactly as the pictures depicted and the location was awesome.

Convienent Hilo Town Family Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Valzey's vacation rental right in the middle of Hilo town which was very convenient for us for the short weekend in for a wedding and trying to see and spend time with everyone in this short amount of time. The place was very easy to find, very quiet and nice safe area, at night my brother said it got a little noisy with people with their cars going up and down but for the most part very good to come in and out with a family of 6. Communication and payment with Val was very easy and amazing, because she even let us check out a little later. It was fully stocked with everything, I was very surprised on the chairs, paper towels, dishwashing detergent, etc. You should bring your own umbrella's if anything due to it raining a lot in Hilo, or if Val provides this it would be awesome. There is also washer and dryer just in case things get wet that we used, 3 tv's in each room for everyone to watch their own stations.

This place was perfect for our little family and we are very grateful for everything, its not the Hilton but definitely cost wise it was a bargin, since the Hilo Hawaiian was way more expensive. The fans were perfect, the windows, beds was a little small but ok, couch looked comfy even thought I didn't sit on it but my cousin slept on it and it was great. The only other thing is maybe the carpets needed shampooing or just put some glade plug ins and it would smell a little better, other then that it was perfect.

Much Mahalo's Val for everything, we will definitely love to stay here again if we ever come to Hilo town again.
