  • 5 of 5

close to hilo, up the mountain in a beautiful garden sits the guest house of paula and jeremy.

we came 2 years ago and this time of course it must also be the arecas!

everything paula writes about the house is true and even better. a wonderfully equipped kitchen, the softest beds, quiet, cool and beautiful, private and friendly and I could go on and on!

thank you so much, paula and jeremy, we spent wonderful days at your house and will be back for sure!

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely and comfortable setting for our Hilo visit! The Holbrooks keep the surroundings spotless and make sure all is well with their guests. The kitchen is very well-equipped, the bed is very comfortable, and the lush vegetation in the backyard is lovely. We’ve visited Hilo a number of times, and this first visit to “The Arecas” makes it our first choice for future lodging here.

Great stay, highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with two kids enjoyed our two nights stay. The condo house is in a quiet street in Hilo but is convenient to everywhere. It has a lovely tropical backyard with fruit trees. The condo is spacious. Both bedrooms and the living room are big. Kitchen has everything we need. The house is very clean and well maintained. It’s better than what I expected from the picture. The house is easy to find with GPS. The laundry room is next door and convenient to use. We love our stay.

A great stay, we recommend it

  • 5 of 5

The place is ideally located, in a very quiet environment. Near the Hawaii Volcanoes Park and other amazing places to see.

And the owners are very welcoming!

Lovely place in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The ARECAS for three nights in December. The house is very private, quiet and its setting quite beautifully landscaped amongst the lava outcrops. Very spacious bedrooms and comfortable beds. In fact, the whole place is spacious and well furnished. The kitchen is good as are the washer and dryer. Loved the lemon and tangerine fruit trees and Paula insisted we help ourselves, which we did! Within walking distance to Boiling Pots and a very short drive to Rainbow Falls. A five minute drive to Hilo. We had beautiful weather: warm during the day, wonderfully cool for sleeping at night. We would return to the ARECAS without hesitation. Thanks Paula for a great stay.

Beautiful Property and Nice, Clean, Spacious House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent a couple of nights here and we all loved it! The house is clean and well maintained with TONS of room. The property is beautiful. Close to Volcano Park, Kaumana caves, Mauna Kea (star gazing was mind-blowing!) and the cool town of Hilo. Walking distance to Boiling Pots.

Paula was a friendly and helpful host. Made us feel welcome and comfortable.

Highly recommend this property!
