    Renting our place is a business, but it's also fun. We are your private hosts and we own and rent just this place and another suite at our home 7 miles from Hilo. Part of the fun is sharing something (when you book) about yourselves and/or your visit to the islands. We look forward to your visit!

    Unit had everything we needed for our stay. Beautiful views and lovely places to swim or to take a pleasant walk. Would stay here again. Loved that it had an elevator.

    We loved the Hilo side of the island so much and this was a great spot to take it all in. The condo has everything you need. We liked the privacy and security factors. Randall was easy to communicate with and the residents at Mauna Loa Shores were friendly and helpful. It’s not a fancy place but the price definitely reflects that. We loved watching whales from the lanai and the activity of Carlsmith right below. It really is as close as it looks, actually closer. Would definitely stay here again!

    We loved staying here; we could hear the ocean waves day and night. The ocean is practically in your backyard at this place and we enjoyed swimming at the park several times. We saw turtles every time we went down to the park/ocean. There is a nice restaurant within walking distance that is open for dinner (Wed-Sun I believe). The apartment is a short drive from downtown Hilo and convenient to other services. We would stay here again.

    Great views from both sides of the apartment. Excellent location. Right by a nice beach where we saw green turtles. Close to town. Quiet and safe place. Would enjoy staying there again.

    The views from the lanai alone make this spot worth the trip. The fact that the condo itself is gorgeous, and fully loaded with everything you’d need to settle in and make it your home away from home was a total bonus. 20 seconds out the back is some amazing snorkelling in a protected little bay, and you’d literally have to go out of your way NOT to see a variety of gorgeous turtles. We are already planning our return to the Hilo area, and are absolutely going to come back here.

    Condo was clean and well stocked. Master bed was very comfortable. Good cross breeze, was never hot. Thought about snorkeling at the beach park, but I was there on a holiday weekend, and the park was crowded. Did see a few turtles in the evening, though. Will definately stay here again. Thank you Randall!

    We loved staying at Randall’s place. Really clean and comfortable for our family and the residents were so nice/kind and Randall was really easy to work with. The view was beautiful and the space super comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!
