About The Owner

My husband and I travel frequently between Hilo and Oahu. I manage a community center in the town I grew up in and my husband manages the publication department for the local newspaper. We enjoy bodysurfing, ziplining, picnic bbqs, hanging out with our dogs and trying new foods. We're friendly and easy to get along with so please don't hesitate to ask questions if you want recommendations or if there's something that we can address during your stay. We're grateful for the opportunity to host you during your Hawaii island vacation.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Why The Owner chose Hilo

We love our Leilani street plantation houses for their charm and proximity to all that Hilo has to offer.

**Cute cottage**

  • 4 of 5

I am a family of 6 and this house had so much space. It’s a cute cottage close to everything in Hilo. It offers AC for those hot nights, fans, laundry , beach accessories and also a play yard for my baby. Although I did not pick any, there’s a huge lychee tree in the back. If I go back to Hilo again, I would love to stay there again.

Adequate, Roomy, Clean, Convenient

  • 3 of 5

The location, right in Hilo on a quiet residential street, is convenient and there is parking in the back of the cottage. The property is bare-bones, lacking enough furniture in the bedroom to put my things on. The air conditioners, in the bedrooms only, were noisy. There was only one smoke detector and when it started beeping, there was no backup battery available. The host told me that the housekeeper the next day would replace the battery (no concern that there may be a fire while we still were her guests!). There were some minor bumps with hot water and with the bed linens. Walking barefoot on the carpet just felt gross. We did like the quiet street and the privacy of having two separate bedrooms. It's obvious this is a cottage that has been cleaned, painted and fixed up cheaply.

Awesome, cute, cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

Always love my stay here. This is actually my second time staying here at this home and always my first choice to stay at when visiting Hilo. It is minutes away from everything and everyplace you need to go. It is in a quiet neighborhood, very cute, cozy, all amenities included and lots of extras if needed. Will recommend any and everyone to stay here when visiting Hilo. Mahalo!
