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!

Spacious Comfort

  • 5 of 5

The first thing we noticed was the large space. There are two large bedrooms both with very comfy beds and large closets. We so enjoyed eating our breakfast on the screened porch with the lush green foliage in the backyard and wonderfully sweet tangerines that we were invited to pluck from the tree there. The kitchen was very clean and had well-stocked cupboards with dishes, pans, glasses etc for our use. We watched a good sized flatscreen in the family/living area and relaxed after a long day of sightseeing. Also, thanks to Paula for having a book with great places to eat locally. The food was fantastic. Lots of fun to be in Hilo with its low key lifestyle and very friendly people. We would love to return!

perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Paula was the perfect hostess: we knew she was available if we needed anything but never intruded on our privacy. The accommodation was immaculately clean, well equipped with anything you might want, and completely comfortable. Great beds, sumptuous linens, and the screened lanai was our favorite place for relaxing and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. It was a great place at a very reasonable price. Stay there and you will love it too.

The porch!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this rental because of the screened-in porch and we were so glad that we did. It was great to start each morning out there drinking coffee and planning our day trips, then returning to sit out there again each evening and listen to the birds and frogs. The porch is a great feature! Then add the extremely comfortable beds, spacious rooms, and lovely ambiance. This apartment is a winner! We felt right at home. We thoroughly enjoyed staying there and highly recommend it.

Our Hilo stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to Hilo. The location was perfect, the place was excellent. Our hosts were available, friendly, and there if needed. We loved the lanai. Accommodations were great and we really had a wonderful time.

Felt right at home! Excellent place to stay. HANA HOU!!!

  • 5 of 5

Paula was awesome. The Acreas was so cozy and comfortable it felt like home....no better than home! Conveniently located just above all the hustle and bustle of downtown Hilo. Beautiful neighborhood, quiet and the house was immaculate. So impressed with the area that we even looked into buying a home several blocks down. House itself was well kept, landscape in the backyard was gorgeous, giving me great ideas for our own home. It's obvious they put a lot of time, energy and Aloha into making it a great experience for their visitors. Hated to leave but will certainly be back at The Acreas when I need a place to stay in Hilo. That would be what's called "Hana Hou" (again) in Hawaiian. Best of all for the location, the price can't be beat.
