Ocean view condo w/ private lanai, shared pool, & full kitchen!
This tropical condo boasts breathtaking views of the ocean and mountains, all from the comfort of your private lanai. The resort's shared freshwater pool is at your convenience, or take a short walk and have your toes in the sand at the neighboring beach. A full kitchen makes the comforts of home in-house while shops and restaurants are located across the street for the times where you want to relax. The open floor plan and ceiling fans keep the rental nice and cool alongside your screened-in lanai to let the cool ocean breezes in. Free WiFi and a desk in the master bedroom face the vast ocean views for those days when you need to get some work done.
What's nearby: On most days you can see steaming Kilauea, our active volcano, from your front door! Swim in the large pool at Maunaloa Shores or next door at Carlsmith Park. The park is a popular place to get into the water in protected lagoons and experience the ocean in Hawaii in a different way from the regular beaches. It is a very picturesque setting and we never get tired of the beauty this place has to offer.
Things to know: Free WiFi Full kitchen (no dishwasher) Shared, coin-operated laundry facilities No air conditioning Elevator in the building

the view is better than i thought, right on the water and you can hear the waves. walk right to the beach next door, just a few minutes from downtown Hilo, 45 minutes max to volcanos, loved it

Great location, great unit. Building looked a little rundown, but the unit itself was wonderful!
Catherine B.Jul 2022
Perfect location - loved the easy access to Carlsmith Beach. Very comfortable condo for a small family.
Vanessa V.Jun 2022
very comfortable space, fans, kitchen supplies to make for a very comfortable stay. Great swimming right next door at a special local park.

We spent a week in Hilo and loved this property.
The fact that the balcony had screens really helped. We never turned on the ceiling fan in the living room.
Just opened the front door, which has a screen and the breeze went right trough.
Unit has everything needed. Location is great with a view of the beach and water.
We are 78. 78. & 79 and had no problems. Since my wife was born in Hilo we knew our way around.
One head’s up. The washer & dryer only takes quarters, 8 each or 16 per load. No credit cards and or bill changer available. Get a roll of quarters at home and bring them with you. The Banks and Credit Onions will not sell you a roll of quarters unless you are a customer.

Me and my wife stayed here with our two grandchildren. The place was perfect, as the kids had their own beds in their own bedroom. It had a beautiful beach right next-door and about a one minute car ride up the street was a very kid friendly beach with large wading pools. Plenty of snorkel gear witch our older child loved.

Lovely location and very comfortable!
Elias V.Aug 2021
I loved everything about this booking. The accommodations, the greenery around the area, the fact that there is easy access to the beach right next door. The balcony view and the kitchen stocked with all the cooking utensils you need. A fridge we can stock with our own food. I had a great stay here. Keep in mind the room with the twin beds has its windows by the road, so with the ko-ki frogs chirping away and the zooming of cars, it’s a bit noisy. My suggestion, close the windows, leave the bedroom door open and the balcony door open so the breeze can go into the room during the hot nights.
Aside from that, it was a wonderful stay here. Might book it again in the future.

The screened lanai gives an extra room.
Gillian B.May 2021
We LOVED our week long stay. We ate out on the screened lanai for every meal—the view of Carlsmith park is phenomenal (and the easy park access…through a gate! Such a dreamy place). I think this unit is very “Hilo”—it’s not new, not luxurious, no AC, so you rely on the ocean breezes, yet it all feels wonderfully real and refreshing. Pool was not new in flashy, but the kids swam in it every day and loved it. Just a few minutes into downtown Hilo, where we went every day for great food and fun activities like the excellent Lyman Museum. A little more than an hour north is the Waipio Valley hike. For our first week in Hawaii, we stayed in a fancy Mauna Lani beach condo, but in the end we liked this place just as well or better. It’s an old cinderblock building! But the charm is real.
Francannette E.May 2021
We loved the location, very clean and quiet. Only note to be made is to let the guest know to plug things in due to it being unplugged when guest leave.
Emily C.Feb 2021
Right on the ocean, roaring waves, turtles on the rocks viewable from the balcony, with all the basics provided that my family needed. Clean, comfortable, convenient, and very reasonably priced.
Tonya G.Feb 2021
This absolutely charming 2 bedroom condo is situated in the perfect location along Hilo's shoreline for enjoying the shallow pools and beaches just far enough outside of Hilo to be quiet and peaceful yet close enough to grab whatever you might need to make your vacation picture perfect! The condo was extremely comfortable, clean, and very well appointed with all the amenities one could imagine needing in a stay-away spot. The kitchen was fully equipped (no dishwasher, but that's no biggie), plenty quality towels and bedding, a clean laundry room for our convenience, and a stunning view from the fully screened and roomy lanai. This really is the sweet spot for a vacay or a local staycay...I can hardly wait to go back again and show off our local accommodations to visiting friends and family post-pandemic! Mahalo, Maunaloa Shores 508 <3!!

Nice secure apartment with nice views of Carlsmith beach park and breathtaking sunrises. It also has good privacy from neighboring apartment units.
Susan E.Mar 2020
Living so close to a beautiful bay and lovely rainforest refreshes the soul. Snorkeling and swimming with sea turtles close by is a wonderful adventure. The view from this condo is breathtaking.
Rachel Louise L.Dec 2019
Clean, tidy and well equipped home. Beautiful spot right on the beachfront with access to a pool. Fabulous opportunity to swim with turtles. A car is necessary to access food stores in town itself.
Donald M.Dec 2019
We would stay again
Virginia S.Nov 2019
Just a few steps away from an amazing place to swim and soak in the ocean.
Simple accommodations with a lovely screened in balcony for enjoying breakfast.
Beth P.Sep 2019
Very convenient location for seeing the volcano stuff and waterfalls. Amazing views of both ocean and volcano (sunset and sunrise). Comfortable for family.
Annmarie M.Aug 2019
Location was excellent for swimming on the Hilo side of the island. Facility was secure - and hopefully they will have a second key available inside the unit (one in the lock box outside) to make coming/going easier for multiple people since you need a key to access the elevator. 5th floor was excellent so you can see the water - view would not be as good on lower floors.
Ashlie C.Jun 2019
This was a perfect place for us and our two younger kids. Great view, awesome access to the ocean, and a refreshing pool! Everything thing we needed. If I had one wish it would be for laundry in unit, but it was right around the corner and not that bad at $3.00 a load for was and dry.

Thank you for helping for us

What a wonderful time we had at Maunaloa Shores 508!! It is right next to a wonderful, local beach and every morning we would go down to the beach to soak up the sun and just relax. The condo proved to be just the right size with just the right amenities. The kitchen was small but just the right size for the two of us and the occasional lunch or dinner with our granddaughters - who live in HIlo. The rooms were clean and the sheets and towels were in great condition. The views toward Hilo bay were simply beautiful and we could look about the front door and see two volcanos on the horizon. Everything in the condo functioned perfectly. I highly recommend this rental if you want a worry free vacation in Hilo with close proximity to the Farmer's Market, restaurants, and downtown shopping.

Our 2 Bedroom Condo was as advertised. Clean and spacious with a great view of the ocean. It had all the comforts of home. I would recommend it to anyone.
Norma .Dec 2017
This two bedroom condo is located next to beach park away from downtown and has beautiful views from the lanai,living and kitchen areas. Clean, comfortable, and the kitchen had all we needed during our stay. We loved the tropical sounds around us at night. It was nice to be able to walk from our place to the beach park next door. Yes, even with the Hilo rain, we would stay here again.
Megan .Oct 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! It was so wonderful to fall asleep to a chorus of the ocean waves! We would stay here again in a heartbeat :)
Sheila .Apr 2017
We had a wonderful time in Hilo and the Maunaloa Shore #508 was a GREAT place to stay. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. WE would definitely stay here again. Mahalo :)
Susan .Apr 2017
Location is excellent with a lovely park next door and great swimming pool. Management is excellent to work with. Decor is in need of update and furniture is no longer supportive in living area. Bathroom is newly updated and lovely. Master bedroom has a great view but would be nice to have a ceiling fan (also 2nd bedroom and twin beds that are very soft). Pillows and bedding are worn and needing to be replaced. Kitchen is well supplied. Surrounding gardens are beautiful.
Gary .Nov 2016
Third stay at Maunaloa Shores, and this was our best. Apt. 508 has everything; Wonderful view, modern well stocked kitchen, very comfortable and well furnished throughout. Loved the screened in lanai. Allowed us to keep window open and feel the tropic breeze and listen to the ocean, without any pesky bugs. Highly recommended, and we plan on staying at Maunaloa Shores #508 in the future. Rental agent also highly recommended.
