ADDITIONAL reviews from JAN FEB guests:

"Hi Terry,
Today was the last day for me to write a review on our stay in Hale Hale 'Ai , so I wrote one tonight. However, I just missed the deadline (apparently it was 9 pm here in CA, not midnight). So I here is the text I had written. I will try to contact VRBO to see if I can still post it.
Beautiful and spacious home, right at the ocean. Gorgeous kitchen with everything we could possibly need, new appliances, and lots of silverware and dishes. Master bedroom had an amazing enormous bed, and walk in shower with pebble floor. The other bedroom had a toilet space with sink, and a 2nd bathroom across the hall. Everything was perfectly clean and new. Lots of towels, sheets, hangers, soaps, and dish washer tablets. Big washing machine and dryer, with tablets provided. The back of the house consists of sliding glass doors that open up all the way to enjoy the sea. The back yard is open to the cliffs, so not safe for the little ones, but what an amazing sight. We saw spinner dolphins every day, and enjoyed their show. Whales came by every now and then and three nene geese payed us a visit too. Perfect spot on the East side of the island to visit the Botanical Garden and waterfalls of Hilo, to visit the Volcano National Park, and to drive to the destructive lava flows of 2018. Thank you for having is stay here, we felt so much at home."

Other things to note
NOTE: pursuant to our Mayor and Governor's mandates, WE CAN START taking your booking now to 10/1 ONLY if you reside on the island. After 10/1 it is a question if the Governor and Mayor will open tourism and most likely you will need a covid test within 72 hours of your flights to the islands.

SO book with confidence and if anything changes that would change this new edict you would get a 100% refund.

Also subject to our standard contract provisions.

Hawaiian Paradise Park is approx. 16 miles from Hilo the main town on the island. Our oceanfront home is spectacular. There is no swimming there as it is approx 20 ft cliff, but that makes it safe from wave action and provides a totally awesome view. Nov. to March or so is WHALE season where many times you can see the Humbacks breaching and spouting out in the ocean fronting the property. All year long if you look there are spinner dolphins (wow). Beautiful safe area with super farmers market a mile from the subdivision on Sundays. Our manager has 46 years living on the island and 43 years as a Realtor here which will ensure you know all the best spots to enjoy and is here 24/7 to answer any questions or concerns
