Other things to note

Why this place: Before I bought these homes I stayed as a guest. That was 4 years ago and my first time to Hilo. After paying too much for air fare and a rental car, it made sense to pay a little extra to stay in a great location. A wise choice. We loved it so much we bought the property we were staying at - a few doors down from this house. We have kept on buying them as they have come to market. This place rivals any place on earth, as you will find out.

This place is in an excellent location, with a beach with snorkeling and swimming just across the street. Richard provided snorkels, masks, paddle boards, and kayaks to use. If you like being in the water this is the place. There are two houses that share the lot with an amazing garden, so if you're the sip coffee and read a book type this will be a great place for you too!

We are already dreaming about our next stay at this house. Dinners on the patio at sunset were our favorite part of the house. It has a perfect view of Richardson Beach Park which is just across the street. The upstairs master suite was perfect for us and our two year old son. My parents and their friends enjoyed the two bedrooms downstairs and the living space and patio were a perfect place for us all to hang together. The gate to the driveway was really nice for keeping our son on the property to play - it allowed us not worry about him by the road. The kitchen is stocked and we took advantage of the blender for smoothies and even made cookies with the Kitchenaid. Richard and Renee were responsive and easy to get a hold of. We loved exploring the beach parks along the road the house is on. Carlsmith Beach Park might have been our favorite, although Richardson was incredible too. Highly recommend this house, especially for families.

My family stayed for two nights and we truly enjoyed the stay. The location is great - only a 10-15 min drive from the airport - and is literally across the street from a beautiful beach park, which can also be enjoyed from the living room and the master bedroom. There are two great restaurants down the road - The Seaside and The Ponds - which our family enjoyed. Also the Volcano Park is about a 40-min drive, which is one of the reasons we chose the place. Great for families with kids as you can enjoy the beach and the volcanoes. The host is also cool and friendly and when I told him my two year old son had broken a lamp he was very understanding. Overall a great place and a very nice host.

This house has a great location across from the local beach. Great views at sunset! The house was very spacious with a great open floor plan and beautiful hardwood floors throughout. The spacious kitchen was modern and well-stocked. Our two adult daughters took the two first floor bedrooms with queen beds and shared a nice bathroom, again well-stocked with towels, shampoo, etc. We had the upstairs king bed and spacious bath with a huge double shower. The 4th very small bedroom was next to the king bed and had a rod for hanging clothes. As the king room had no storage space, we put our suitcases on the two twin beds. This room had one window and no ceiling fan. An outside eating area on the first floor and a two chair porch on the second floor would be great for having drinks and viewing the sunset. This house had plenty of parking as well as plenty of sports equipment: bikes, snorkel gear, etc. No a/c, but we were fine in January with open windows and fans. The baby gear mentioned in a previous review was in the upstairs closet. For us, the beach was great for views but rocky with strong waves.... Not a place where we would feel safe swimming. Hot water is solar powered. Manage your hot water use. There is a switch for pure electric. Overall, we were very happy and would recommend this rental.

Response from Richard:
I'm glad you enjoyed the house. It is a great size for 6 as I advertise it as a 3 bedroom house. In a pickle, people can stay in the converted master bedroom closet since it has a window. I certainly don't advertise that as a 4th bedroom and let parties above 6 know about the sleeping arrangement. It is too bad the ocean was stormy. That is unusual. Normally the beach park has lots of little kids and swimmers and is very easy for novices to enjoy.
