Lovely location and very comfortable!
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!
The apartment is comfortable and easily sleeps four. Sitting on the lanai is like spending time in a tropical garden, with large trees, foliage and birdsong nearby. And the greatest bonus is a beach right next to the property, where one can swim in protected waters, see tropical fish and sea turtles, or sit under shade trees. The paths to the water are rocky, so be sure to wear waterproof sandals or flipflops!
