Very nice property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Host was friendly and made herself available for us. We had our own parking spot marked for guests which I thought was a nice touch. The place was very clean and there was soap and some kitchen items that came in handy. Obvious that there was a lot of thought putting things together to make the stay pleasant. Absolutely LOVED the screened in patio. Sat out there before bed listening to the sound of the great outdoors. Very relaxing! Also appreciated the prepared book of suggestions for the area. Would definitely recommend and go back again!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay if you want to explore the Hilo side of Big Island. Great location close to downtown Hilo, very clean and spacious. Paula lives in the house connected to the unit and made herself very available in case we needed anything. Highly recommended

We were totally happy at our Hilo "Home Away From Home.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here felt like home and provided a wonderful peaceful retreat each evening when we returned. It was clean, beautifully decorated, lovely large bedrooms, and all the amenities we needed. Internet speed was awesome for keeping us connected with family at home. Paula and Jeremy were wonderful hosts and we loved their beautiful yard that we could wander around in. What hotel could provide all of this? Private home rentals rock. Thank you once again for sharing your home with us.
