My husband and I met on the Big Island; married and moved into our Hilo home. After many years and several renovations we enjoy sharing our home with family, friends, and travelers from all over the world.
Paula Holbrook purchased this house in 2000
Cousin and I were quite impressed with this spacious place. Bedrooms, living room, kitchen and lanai/patio was so homey that we both wished we were permanent residents.
Paula and her husband are very friendly hosts. They provided us with awesome travel resources (restaurant menus, maps, and activity info).
We both were busy holo-holo'ing (cruising) around the island each day that coming back to this cozy abode was greatly welcomed. I loved the bed in my room. I'm considering changing my home mattress to a firm top. I slept like a baby to the sounds of the Hilo evening (wind, rain, and Coqui frogs).
We would highly return back to this place again. We have friends that saw our FB pic posts are looking to reserve this place on their next visit to Hilo.
Way better than staying in a hotel in Hilo. You won't be disappointed.
I couldn't have been happier with the beautiful place we stayed in Hilo. Paula was the perfect hostess, there if we needed her but never hovering. The listing is accurate but in my opinion, the space is even better than described. Everything is clean and neat. The house and property were just beautiful. We had plenty of bright cheerful space, and everything we needed. You can see the ocean from the front yard, and a brief walk brings you to some gorgeous waterfalls just around the corner. It's a quick drive into town. Hilo is the cutest small town ever! And on a stunning bay.
We will be back!
Mahalo nui loa!
Of the 4 places we stayed throughout Hawaii, we enjoyed Paula's suite the most. It was VERY spacious and welcoming to stay. The kitchen was stocked with all the basics (spices, foil, etc), so all we had to do was pick up our main items at the store to cook for our short stay. Definitely take advantage of enjoying breakfast and coffee in the sunroom and the beauty of their yard. We were 2 couples travelling through the big island and the two rooms were perfect for our needs. It was also near 2 natural attractions (Boiling Pots and Rainbow Falls). If we ever return to Hilo, we hope Paula's suite is available for our stay!
What a wonderful place! This property is large, airy, beautiful, super clean, and peaceful. It's a great home base for exploring around Hilo – there's spectacular waterfalls and caves nearby, and the house is located within a few minutes of downtown Hilo. The kitchen is well-stocked and the beds are super comfortable!
Paula was super nice and very accommodating, and their property around the house was beautiful and serene.
Arecas was the perfect Hilo location for my family of 4! Short drive into Hawaii Volcano National Park.
Paula greeted us when we arrived and even allowed us early check-in since the unit was ready for us :)
The unit is just as pictured! Bedrooms were spacious- beds were comfy and well made. Nice furniture for unpacking and large closets if you need the space. The bathroom and kitchen had all the essentials! Shampoo, hair dryer, aloe, bug spray.....everything in case you forgot! Fridge had condiments etc...sandwich bags and wrap and ICE! They provided a nice cooler and nice beach towels for our beach day too :)
Paula and Jeremy were gracious hosts- even looking out for us after we were gone on a long day at the volcano national park! I wish we could have spent more time ! Also, the location is just a few minutes outside of Hilo- easy to get in and out! They even provided a list of places to eat and menus for us!
I would certainly stay here again and would highly recommend Arecas to anyone looking for the great stay in Hilo!
This is a great little ohana to stay in. The owners are very nice and accommodating. The grounds are beautiful. The furnishings and amenities were fabulous. I will definitely be returning to stay again.
