So worth it! Plenty of room, good location, and all you need to be comfortable.

First time using Vacasa! Extremely satisfied with Air BnB home. Would definitely consider booking same home on next trip to Hilo!

Wonderful home that has all the amenities. Close to all the popular sites. Ona busy street, but that all fades into the background. Have stayed here twice and will again!

There were 7 of us, and this home was perfect, offering lots of space for spreading out but also had good common areas for gathering comfortably. Super clean. Very well-equipped kitchen for Asian cuisines, which as family that loves to cook together, really helped us create memorable meals for our mini-reunion. You'll want a car to get around, but it's pretty close to downtown Hilo and local sites. Highly recommend!

We had 10 family members staying here and enjoyed it very much. The place has 5 bedrooms, not 3 as advertised, plus lots of fold-out couch-to-beds. A small army could stay here comfortably. When we got there the wifi didn't work but they sent somebody out within 20 minutes to fix it. Likewise when an erstwhile firealarm went off for no reason. Very responsive. The only real negatives were that the basement was a little damp and probably needs a dehumidifier. Moreover, the vent from the dryer stupidly vents into the room, not to the outside. The house is also across the street from a small prison with barbed wire which is a bit of an eyesore. But the grounds and rest of the neighborhood are very nice and there's an elementary school a few blocks down the street too. So we felt safe. We would definitely stay there again.
Manager response:
Hi, Andrew! Thank you for telling us about your stay. The dryer does vent into the laundry room, which is not ideal, but it was the way the home was designed. We have not noticed any moisture in the basement, but we will keep an eye on it. We hope to see you again!

We loved being so close to everything...and being able to cook for our team. It was a great experience for all of us players, parents and coaches!!

This home is very spacious that can sleep 16 comfortably. No AC but enough fans and windows to keep the house very cool. It has a FULLY equipped kitchen and it was very clean! This was our second time this year renting this home for our youth basketball team and we would definitely want to stay there again!

Nice location, clean spacious house, Plenty of Cooking utensils.

Only improvement is if you plan to watch TV in your off time not many cable channels so be prepared to watch tv on your other electronics.

Very well equipped for a large family. Lots of dishes, big pots, and serving ware. There is no partial a/c and almost everything was as described. We didn’t find any beach towels and counted only 8 towels for our group of 10. But we were prepared so no stars off for that. We did have a pest problem that was promptly dealt with. The local manager was pleasant and accommodating. Overall we loved it! Great location!

We have stayed at numerous vacation rental properties, but this beautiful home is by far the most AMAZING property we have ever stayed in. Everything in this home, every little detail, is spectacular and the quality of care and maintenance is exceptional.

Exterior: The landscaping is very well manicured and the exterior walls of the home are nice and well maintained.

Living room: Both living rooms are beautifully decorated with high quality furniture.

Kitchen: Well stocked with cookware and tableware. Updated with modern appliances.

Bedrooms: Beds are comfortable and nicely dressed. Great closet space with hangers provided.

Bathrooms: So beautiful. Huge shower heads, good water pressure and beautiful shower floors. Travel toiletries provided.

Laundry: Huge washer, 2 dryers, utility sink and laundry baskets.

Beautiful plantation-style house close to downtown. Location is convenient to everything. Check In was easy. House was sparkling clean. Large enough for our family of 10, with a few pullout beds to spare. Kitchen had all the equipment to cook for a large group. Check out tasks were very easy. We will definitely stay there again!

This home was perfect for large families, they really took into consideration large families in their sleeping arrangements, double dryers in the laundry room, and well stocked kitchen. Pleasant and charming house.

Very spacious and clean home! Great layout!
Ronald V. May 2019
This house is absolutely wonderful. From the location, to the size, and the care and time the owner has invested in it. It is warm and welcoming from the moment you set foot in the door. This is the second time I have stayed here, and cannot wait until I come back again.
Elizabeth C. May 2019
Very spacious house with lots of bedrooms and family room space. Very clean! The only problem was that is was warm during the day with no a/c, but we stayed gone during the day most of the time. Nights were pleasant. House was close to town and anywhere we wanted to go.

Very well appointed and roomy. We could all spread out.
