About This Listing
Island Breeze Bungalow is located in the heart of Hawaii's tropical rain forest. The bungalow is located half way between the town of Hilo and Volcanos National Park.
We have a plantation-style bungalow (780 sq ft each) with vaulted ceilings, a spacious master bedroom featuring a king-sized bed with luxury linens, a glass tiled walk-in shower with garden views, full gourmet kitchen with stove/oven and microwave, and it's all connected by a gracious 2,200 sq ft lanai (deck) and a beautiful pool. The Island Breeze Bungalows are located at the end of a secluded road in Hawaiian Paradise Park (HPP). We have built a loyal following of repeat guests.
Our luxury Hawaiian Vacation Rental has a custom pool, fun patio, a BBQ, 2 mountain bikes, and a set of snorkel gear for your use. Our pool is eight feet deep and lighted for those midnight swims. Hawaiian Paradise Park (HPP) is ideally located on Hawaii Big Island half-way in between all the sights in Hilo and the spectacular Volcano National Park.
This is a non smoking adult rental. There is a $50 cleaning fee.
Hamlet hat uns bei der Ankunft sehr herzlich empfangen und uns das Haus gezeigt.
Ein Ordner mit Unterlagen für Restaurants und Shopping Möglichkeiten lag bereit für uns und Hamlet hat uns noch einige Infos zur Umgebung gegeben.
Er stand uns auch zur Verfügung bei Fragen oder wenn uns etwas fehlte.
Das Haus ist sehr gross mit einer riesen top ausgestatteten Küche, schönem Bad etc wie in der Beschreibung.
Wir haben uns sofort wie zuhause gefühlt.
Einzig das gequake der Frösche war etwas gewöhnungs bedürftig, dies ist aber für diese Region auf Big Island ganz normal. :-)
Is as nice as it looks in the pictures. One bedroom bungalow, is very comfortable and nicely furnished. Great kitchen. King-size bed. There is a nice pool, pleasing landscaping and a barbeque.
The house and grounds were immaculate. Coqui frogs sang us to sleep each night. We were not bothered by mosquitos and did not see any bugs in the house.
The host, Hamlet, responds quickly to questions and requests. He is very unobtrusive but available if anything is needed.
The bungalow is located about 20 minutes west from the Hilo airport toward Volcano National Park. We found it to be a great place from which to begin each day's adventure. And stores are about 10 minutes from the house.
We give Island Breeze Bungalow the highest recommendation possible: We would definitely stay there again if in the area.
Island Breeze Bungalow is awesome! Hamlet is a very nice host! They house is incredible! Clean, nicely decorated, and peaceful. I have stayed here before and will most likely stay here in the future.
We had a wonderful time at Hamlet's bungalow! We were expecting it to be nice from the pictures, but it was even nicer in person. The thatched ceiling inside the bungalow gave it a nice tropical feel. Eating breakfast on the lanai facing the backyard and pool each morning was great. The bed is huge and very comfortable, and the bathroom with the walk-in shower was quite luxurious. We enjoyed listening to the coqui frogs at night through the open windows, and the roosters in the morning did not bother us. A number of little extras were included, like beach towels and mats, and Hawaiian coffee (and sugar/nondairy creamer). There were lots of things in the cabinets and under the sinks in case we needed them... even a mini hair straightener. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything we would have needed to cook full meals, though we only ate breakfast there. My boyfriend enjoyed using the pool twice, although I refrained since it was unusually cool and rainy when we were there. We only saw Hamlet when we checked in, even though he lives right next door, but we knew we could contact him if we needed anything, and it was clear he respected our privacy. The location worked well for us for visiting Volcano National Park, the Hilo area, and exploring the Puna area. It was slightly off the beaten path but not hard to get to. The value for the price was incredible - I have paid much more for places half as nice. I highly recommend staying at Hamlet's if you are in the area!
Hamlet is extremely warm and welcoming while completely respecting a guest's desire for privacy. He is knowledgeable and enthusiastic when asked for recommendations about activities and locations on the island.
Hamlet's bungalows were exactly as described on the listing. They were clean, tidy and very well equipped with a great interior decor rivaling the best of hotels! The kitchen is very well equipped with the usual stuff: pots, pans, cutlery, glasses, stove, oven, drip coffee machine, fridge, dishwasher, etc. And Hamlet even left out a fresh bag of coffee for our stay :)
The photos do a very good job of showing the place. We found it a great place to relax and explore the east side of the big island.
Outside of the bungalows is landscaped very well and the surrounding neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. We feel asleep to the noises of the forest each night.
Hamlet stays in the second bungalow on the grounds and was very welcoming, polite and friendly.
We found it a great place to stay but this might not be for everyone as it is about 20 or 30 minutes drive to restaurants, shops and supermarkets.
Hamlet met us outside as soon as we arrived. He seems knowledgeable about the area and happy to help. He's also out of sight unless you need something. He has a designated parking spot for guests which is very close to the door--so that was great. I felt like the bungalow was actually a little bigger than I expected from the pictures. It's conveniently located between Hilo and the Volcano Park--which was what I wanted. The neighborhood is quiet. We did hear the occasional dog barking but it didn't disturb us. There are lots of birds and frogs that were actually nice to listen to. The house is very clean, well decorated, and had all the amenities we needed. I was very happy with our stay and hope that I'll be able to visit again in the future.
