About Miguel Bray

Owner is a mature, well-traveled person with a varied past, an interest in everyone and everything and a good sense of humor.

Miguel Bray purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Miguel Bray chose Hilo District

Whether you've come to the Big Island for tourism, business, or to visit your auntie or granddaughter, Hale Kamakana will be the perfect spot to work from. Centrally located in Hilo with easy access to the airport, everywhere in town and beyond! It's comfortable, quiet, private and convenient. Covered carport for your car, comfortable furnishings, even a furo for soaking. You can find a cottage by a waterfall or in the jungle for a higher price, but you can't find more comfortable or more convenient accommodations at any price!

What makes this apartment unique

Backyard BBQ and fruit trees, comfortable furnishings, quiet environment, full kitchen, furo, Bollywood movie DVD's, downloadable Bollywood music, nearby public library and other conveniences, walk to University of Hawai'i.... who could ask for more?

A big yard to enjoy the flowers.

Miguel was a wonderful host. He was asking if he could do anything to make our stay better. Close to the mall and our family and a quiet neighborhood. We stayed for 2 weeks and it was great to have a washer n dryer at our convenience. I would stay there again on my next trip.

Cozy resting spot for a short term accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental in Hilo met our short term need of a one night accommodation as we were traveling around the island and taking in the sights on the east side of the big Island. There was plenty of space for our family of four. The rental was clean and affordable. Offstreet parking and floor fans where provided for extra conveniences.

Un appartement décoré avec goût

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons eu la chance de passer deux-trois jours à Hilo... et de dormir dans la charmante maison de Miguel.

L'appartement est vraiment surprenant dans sa décoration, que nous avons vraiment apprécié. Très original et international.

Les pièces sont assez grandes et lumineuses. La propreté est irréprochable, ce que nous avons su beaucoup apprécier.

Un grand merci à Miguel, qui, à la tombée du jour, a su répondre avec efficacité à ma demande. En raison d'une fuite dans le toit en réparation au dessus de ma chambre, une goutte d'eau se faisait bruyamment entendre toutes les deux secondes. Vous avez déjà entendu parler de la torture à la goute d'eau ? :) Miguel a pris au sérieux ma gêne et n'a pas hésité, à la lampe frontale, à grimper sur le toit pour tenter de trouver la source du problème.

La cuisine est particulièrement bien équipée et agréable. La même chose pour la salle de bain, qui a l'originalité d'avoir une douche (très agréable) ou une baignoire... On choisit selon l'humeur :)

Deux bémols, cependant :

Mes deux co-voyageurs m'ont dit avoir eu la désagréable surprise d'avoir à partager de près la conversation de deux personnes directement sous leurs fenêtres. Vu que l'isolation phonique est inexistante, cela les a plutôt dérangées... surtout à 3h au milieu de la nuit...

L'appartement se trouve en sous-sol, ou plutôt, au rez-de-chaussée. Au vu de son intelligente conception et chouette décoration, cela n'est pas du tout dérangeant. Par contre, les locataires n'ont pas vraiment d'accès à une terrasse extérieure. Il y a certes une table et deux chaises à l'entrée (donc à l'intérieur du garage), mais cela ne remplace pas le plaisir d'admirer la nature et d'apprécier le soleil... Le propriétaire songerait-il, à l'occasion, à laisser l'accès à un petit coin de sa pelouse pour ses locataires ? :)

Une bonne adresse que je recommande...

Beautifully decorated, spacious, centrally located in Hilo

  • 5 of 5

Miguel's place was so much nicer than a hotel, and my cousin and I had a fabulous short stay there (2 nights), while on a 6 night trip to the Big Island. This was our first stop, and we fell in love with Hilo and would definitely stay at this place again. Miguel was home when I pulled into the driveway, and he came out and greeted us. He was friendly, but respected our privacy, and we did not see him again during our stay (his directions were all very clear and we had no issues with anything). As a huge animal lover, I really loved the fact that he has a cat(s), and he even had a few cute little statutes of kitties in the bedrooms. There was a washer and dryer, a big kitchen, living room with HDTV and cable. The bedrooms were really cute, and the beds comfy. We saved a ton of money by using the fully equipped kitchen and making our meals. There was also a book of menus, and we walked to the Thai Smile restaurant for dinner. Unfortunately, it was closed, but there was a great burger place (Hilo Burger) right next to it that had delicious and organic meat plus live music. We went to the tide pools at Onekahaha nearby, and saw the biggest sea turtle I have ever seen in my life, plus two medium sized ones, and loads of beautiful fish and an eel. Miguel's place is minutes from downtown Hilo (you could walk it if you wanted to), and we went to the farmer's market, and several of the little souvenir shops. We had a picnic lunch at the Japanese gardens, which are also nearby. Loved it. Thanks, Miguel!

Has evertything you need

  • 5 of 5

Great location in Hilo, 5 min drive to anywhere in town; the unit is comfortable and has everything you need. You can tell the owners took time and thought in the décor, it is personal. We appreciated having movies and games available, and we used them all! Would certainly stay here again.

All the comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit and requested to stay longer. This home is very comfortable with a lot of extra touches including very nice interior furnishings and decorating. The owner is adding on features, including a new lanai while we were there. The washer and dryer were big pluses for us. I borrowed a bike during my visit and went into downtown Hilo for a movie, lunch and groceries. By bike, it is less than 10 minutes away. Very clean home and the owner was very helpful.
