Classic Mid-Century Condo near the Ocean w/Private Lanai & Shared Pool!
Maunaloa Shores 612 is a retreat that feels like home. This rental has recently been redone in tropical decor, accented by original artwork and there are comfortable armchairs both inside and out on the private lanai. Its central location makes walks to the beach to swim and relax just minutes away, or you can roam the farmer's market, shops, and many restaurants conveniently located nearby. There is also a shared, freshwater pool on-site if you'd rather stay close to home.
What's nearby: Take a short walk to Carlsmith Park next door for a dip in the ocean where the lagoons create calm swimming areas and provide protection from the surf. The four-mile stretch of different swimming coves in this area (called Keaukaha) is a wonderful location to introduce children and newcomers to the water. Keep an eye out for our local Hawaiian monk seal 'mama' and her children who sometimes pop up on shore in this neighborhood, but don't disturb them as they are very endangered.
Things to know: Free WiFi Full kitchen (no dishwasher) No air conditioning Shared coin-op laundry facilities on each floor Elevator in the building

The outside of the building isn’t much - needs some repair, fixing up in general. The unit, tho, is quite well done & cozy. Comfortable master bedroom & roomy 2nd bedroom. Full size kitchen & open dining, living area + balcony with a nice view. Great shower with plenty of hot water. Linen closet holds plenty of towels - very helpful. We felt like we were staying with folks who understand comfortable living.
Also, close to multiple good eateries -especially Ken’s Pancakes & Don’s Grill.
Thanks for a great stay!

Right next to the prettiest beach with both sand and lava rocks. Locals were kind, friendly and helpful.

The place was very clean (and for the ridiculous cleaning fee I paid - it should be). But the couch has a bunch of stains. Spilled drink? leaky diaper? Other bodily fluids? Owner should, at minimum, buy a cover for it if they can't replace it. Bedroom carpets are also stained, but they've obviously been cleaned a LOT because the carpets are "crunchy" from the dried cleaning solution.
Thank you for your feedback, Mark. We will be purchasing couch covers and will be scheduling a professional upholstery cleaning. A carpet cleaning has been scheduled as well on the next available dates. We hope we can host you again!

Plus- location, location, location
2 bedrooms with beds
Kitchen pretty well equipped
Lots of towels
No ocean view
Bigger bedroom was muggy, had to chose between curtains and airflow
Popcorn ceiling flaking off in several places
We will definitely stay here again!

Older building so expect for some insects to get in, a bit of ants just kept all our food in the fridge and had no issue. There is a coin op. laundry machine on same floor, ac fan worked great, it gets very hot during the day.

Very nice location, comfortable but needs little bit of upgrades. Would recommend it.
Mary E.Nov 2021
Good location. Comfortable
Dawn L.Aug 2021
Bedrooms were comfortable & spacious, kitchen items were well stocked. AC would have been nice, as it was quite warm the first week, and tie backs or clips for the curtains would have been convenient, only to control when/where the blazing sun would enter but enjoy the view and to keep out rain & still allow a breeze. I realize these are minor criticisms…it IS Hilo after all! The apartment was quiet (cinderblock walls), residents friendly, and in a great, removed-from-town location!
Leonardo G.Aug 2021
Great location but the room was hot and humid. The fans didn't do us justice to keep the condo cool. We were in the Big Island on business and coming from the main island some AC would of help after a long day of work. Overall the location is not upscale just a run down apartment complex.
Hi Leonardo. Thank you for taking the time to leave us this feedback. We're sorry to hear that the home was less than spectacular during your stay. We have passed along your comments to our local staff so that we can work with the homeowners and make the necessary upgrades so that future guests can continue to enjoy the area and this home! We hope that we have another chance in the future to impress you!

You can't beat this location. Carlsmith Beach Park is right next door. The snorkeling here is great! The water is calm. And the honu (turtles) love it here as much as the humans do. We have traveled to most of the islands, and now live on Oahu. This was the 3rd time we have stayed at this property. It is our favorite place in Hawai'i.
Matthew P.Dec 2020
This is a 2bed1bath apartment right next to a beach park. Sea turtles show up frequently there. Pretty secure and everything is in good shape. Well maintained and adorable interior design.
Having a car is a must if you want to go to downtown restaurants. Water pressure a bit mild for shower.

We had a wonderful vacation in this apartment . Very well situated rooms. Nice and clean. Nice view from the terrace.
Not too much to see at this location though, you would need a car also.
We usually travelled away. Once walked to the city, another time strolled in the neighborhood. Still nice place, but not too much in comparison with the rest of the island.

I loved the view and the beach was really nice💙 Its a perfect place to start your vacation and a little home to stay at💙💙💙💙💙
Lily N.Nov 2019
The location is nice, close to the ocean, but kitchen appliances very very very old ! Microwave not working, refregrator was leaking , I had to put a towel in it so our food don’t get soaked. However the first day when we got there it was very hot and humid and fan was not working I called and the coordinator brought us 2 new portable fans.For other appliances I didn’t care, didn’t want to ruin my vacation to call every day to notify them the appliances don’t work , and base boards are falling apart, after all it was not my responsibility to update the unit!
Thank you for your review, Lily! The baseboards have been fixed, the freezer has been thawed out, additional fans were brought to the home, and the microwave has been replaced. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We enjoyed our stay. The grounds keeper was super friendly and helpful

Located just East of Hilo International's flight paths for take offs.
The airport authority should limit what hours for flight operations for residents a nd visitors alike.
The condo itself was OK, but there are some maintenance issues. Rentals require more attention than those for owners because of wear and tear.
The floor fans were a God send! Hilo was having an unrecented hot spell. All in all we had a pleasant stay - Thank you.
Douglas W.Aug 2019
The toilet wasn’t working, but maintenance responded quickly.
Teri S.Aug 2019
Nice clean condo with comfortable beds. Had all the basics in the kitchen. Enjoyed the pool and only a few steps to the ocean for great snorkeling and swimming. We saw lots of fish and turtles. Definitely will be staying here again.

Loved being next to beach park, tidy apartment, nice to have esky to use at beach
Howtey E.May 2019
I love the fact that you had a pool onsite and right next to that was access to the beach. Nice and safe! Management was very nice! Very spacious rooms, this would be my first choice I mean ONLY choice if I am in the Hilo again to book without a heartbeat!!!
Shelley .Dec 2017
Close to beaches, secure with most accomodations. Pricing was appropriate, we would stay here again.
Rovert .Dec 2017
I have lived in Hawaii for forty years and rented this condo for a month of exploration on the Big Island. This peace of heaven is a winner!! Excellent location, all the basics of a local vacation rental, walking distance to stunning beach parks, tasty sea food restaurants and more. I would return in a heart beat!
Kaleo .Jun 2017
Loved the location in the heart of the beaches in hilo.....went in the water with my 8 and 5 year old kids everyday, it was spectacular.
Barbara .Apr 2017
I enjoy the location close to Hilo but with a country feeling. It is very quiet and relaxing. The condo had everything except bathtub soap so our first shower on arrival night was just a rinse off. The views out the bedroom windows are exceptional. I will definitely stay here again in the future.
Jorn .Apr 2017
Nice flat close to Hilo and airport. Close to the volcanos and the Saturday market in Hilo. Apartment has everything you need, a good place to stay on the Big Island
David .Mar 2017
Great location for seeing the Hilo side of the island. Great for just hanging out at the park/ lagoon nbehind/next to the condo. Nice patio, pool and a relaxing area.
Norman .Feb 2017
They enjoyed the stay in the condo - loved it and would like to be back. The location is/was the best part of it all - close to the ocean.
