    We (two couples) really enjoyed our stay at this house, especially the quiet location, ocean views, lovely birds, nearby hikes, and the big common areas where we could hang out in the spacious living room, large kitchen, or ocean-facing patio. We cooked a lot together and had everything we needed, though maybe could add a few large serving bowls and a pitcher for iced drinks. The beds and sectional sofa were very comfortable. Would stay here again!

    Our family of 4 loved this beautiful, clean and spacious home. The neighborhood feels safe and we enjoyed walking on the coastline path behind the house. It seems to be a popular spot for small late night gatherings on the weekend, but the noise was not too troublesome. It was fun sleeping to the sounds of coqui frogs and waves and waking to roosters and crashing waves. The kitchen is a delight to cook in and everything was in working order despite some funky electrical stuff. Location is not too far from grocery/restaurants/Hilo/volcano, not walking distance though. Be sure to get dinner at Kaleo’s!

    This was our third time staying at this property and we love it! BUT it has severe water pressure problems. At first we found that we could only use one water fixture at a time. So do not use a sink or flush a toilet anywhere in the entire 3 bedroom with 2.5 bathrooms while you are showering or you will be standing there with only a dribble of water in the shower. This is ridiculous for such a nice and relatively (at least for our family) expensive property. But we dealt with this for a couple of days until I took a dribble shower with no other water running in the house (I was policing the entire family). At which point I complained to the property manager. They sent a technician and we were told that they cleaned a filter and when we used the water next it was LOVELY without any concerns of multiple water fixture use. This should be better managed by the property!!! We were given a very small discount for our inconvenience. Only other minor complaint were the master bedroom windows which have a direct view of the ocean - if you could see out of them! They are so covered in what I imagine is salt water buildup that they are more opaque. Which is a shame because it is such a amazing view. None of this is to say we would not stay here again. BUT definitely contact the rental company immediately if any plumbing issues - don’t wait like we did.
