The Arecas a Home away from Home

  • 4 of 5

I had contacted Paula the day before our arrival to inquire if it was possible to check in earlier than the indicated time. We were coming from Kona and Paula was gracious enough to allow us to do that. The house was very nice and clean, well appointed, it was just what we needed for our two night stay. We left to spend the evening at the Volcano National Park and again the next evening viewing the lava flow in Kalapana. Having returned late both nights, we were greeted by cockroaches in the kitchen drawers when we attempted to prepare something to eat. How could this happen in this beautiful, warm and comfortable place? Needless to say everything was washed before its use. Paula, you have a lovely home, I hope and I trust you have taken care of this infestation since my friends videoed and showed you what we were talking about. I don't believe some people would stay after seeing what we did.

Owner's Response: Once again my sincere apology for your unpleasant experience and thank you for bringing it to my attention. Immediately after your departure, the kitchen was cleared out and an exterminator came in to address the issue. I will continue to be vigilant in order to avoid any recurrence in the future. Mahalo, Paula

Hilo Visit June 29

  • 4 of 5

We were in Hilo to visit our family and The Arecas was the perfect location for us and two adult sons. It was close to downtown and Paula had a binder with menus from several local restaurants and a few of my favorite places were included. We used the enclosed "lanai" to enjoy the quiet mornings and read a book/plan our day. Paula was close by and could answer any question that we had.

We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you Paula and Jeremy for a wonderful stay. Your vacation home was spotless, nicely decorated, comfortable beds and kitchen well equipped. The binder of information you have was really helpful too. Great location as well.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in The Arecas for three nights and it perfectly met all of our needs. Paula was great to work with and you can tell the property is well cared for by the owners. The Arecas is attached to the owner's home in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. The space is super clean, really comfortable beds, and very spacious bedrooms. The house has a great breeze when you open the windows and is just very peaceful. We liked the reserved parking spot. The screened porch with the dinning table worked great as we listened to the nightly symphony of wildlife. Washing machine and dryer are right outside the space with everything you need. The kitchen has all the basic cooking utensils. Paula was very friendly and was great in offering tips to our stay. We really enjoyed going up to Mauna Kea vistor center and watching the stars. Great value, great property.
