The space

Our adjacent homes house scientists, researchers, writers, engineers, graduate students and summer interns for the telescope community, observatories, university and college of pharmacy. As such, we often host an international mix of residents from many countries.

I often host the same scientists over and over, and they feel this is their home when returning to Hilo. We love making new friends, and the conversation here is never boring.

Oh! And the avocados! If you hit it right, there are amazing butter pear avocados.

So, whether you are here to coordinate a film crew, practice your Argentine Tango, outfit a simulated Martian expedition, write a retrospective, adapt optical instruments for telescopes, study climate change, practice yoga or simply relax and read a good book (or a dozen!) .... it is helpful to have resources on-site that can assist you with navigating your Big Island experience.

Just a few days before our trip, I came down with a terrible case of pneumonia and had to delay the whole trip. Robin was incredibly kind and flexible in working with me to rearrange our visit, and I am really grateful for that! The house is great, and I am glad we got to stay there. As other reviewers have said, it's like a used book and record store, which was a lot of fun. The place is spacious and the beds are very comfy. It's conveniently located in Hilo and definitely gives you the taste of living like a local.

Have you ever walked into a used bookstore and just wanted to stay there for a few days? That is what it is like staying here. Warm, cozy, lots and lots of books. My family of 6 were very happy and comfortable here, plenty of room for everyone. Centrally located in Hilo, yet out of the Tsunami Evac. Zone. :-)

Robin was a wonderful host and was very prompt in her response on Airbnb. She called us up when we landed in the airport provided us with directions to the home. She walked us through the house giving us details on what we can find and where. The house is really close to Subway, Laudromat (both about 200m away), about .3 miles from an Indian restaurant, Hawaiian Shave ice/ ice cream and about 1 mile away from Walmart, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, IHop, Sears, Macys, KTA Supermarket, etc. She gave us tips on going to the Green Sand Beach and that we should not drive our SUV up to the beach (she was right the road is very rough, you may damage the undercarriage). Regarding the house, it was a good size house with 3 bedrooms (one bedroom with 2 beds). There are books everywhere, except one bedroom and the kitchen :-) The amenities in the house could have been better. One of the common bathroom doors did not close (probably due to the wet weather in Hilo), so we had to put something by the door to indicate that someone was inside. The kitchen had a lot of utensils and we were able to cook a few meals. We wished that there was a dish washer , the ladies did not like that they had to wash the dishes by hand for 7 days we stayed there. We did not have the time to go to the laundromat, so we also wished that there was laundry inside the house to dry the wet towels. Since, it rained all the days we stayed at Hilo, the wet towels left in the rooms (spread out for drying) would not dry.

Robin was a gracious host and we had a great experience renting the whole house. It was a nice surprise to find towels for all the guests, since the "essentials" aren't included as an amenity in the listing, and she even offered coffee in the morning with light breakfast. The internet was a little dodgy, but it sounds like it's normally not an issue, and she tried her best to help us by restarting the router several times. The location is convenient for shuttling people to and from UH Hilo and the airport, but despite the central location, it's quiet and tucked away.

My family is large so we rent houses pretty much every where we go. This experience was different in that we were welcomed by our host as soon as we drove up, and she showed us around the house giving us lots of helpful details. Also, the next morning, she made us coffee and served us fruit from her yard! The house was very spacious so that we did not feel cramped and Robin, our host also let me use her yoga platform to practice yoga which is something I do every day at home, so that made me feel even more at ease. It was so great to have a kitchen so that we did not have to eat out every meal. I loved the kitchen.The house was at a great location, just minutes from the farmers market and all the fun shops down town. Robin also let us use the back yard for the kids to play in and that was a big help. Staying here helped me relax and feel more at home. I loved the charm of the house - lots of fun!
