House was great for my team and I during our stay. It had plenty of rooms and space for us to spread out. The location was great as it was close to a beach park across the street, which made it easy to BBQ and go in the water. It's convenient to downtown Hilo as its only about 12-15 minutes away. Would recommend the house to others. Thanks again.
We had a wonderful 10 day stay here and couldn't be happier. The close proximity to Richardson's was amazing and we greatly enjoyed our daily swims, snorkeling and seeing more sea turtles than we could count. Our two kids loved exploring the surrounding property and visits into Hilo Town. Jamie and Jocelyne were absolutely great.
we stayed 5 days at the house in the summer of 2015. It is a nice big house located right across the street from the beach. The location is nice, at a quiet place at night. During daytime it is a bit busier but not annoyingly. Funny detail is that every day we saw several buses of Japanese tourist unload and pack up again in 15 minutes. They too are not annoying.The location is close to Hilo centre, 5-10 min by car.
The house has plenty of space, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. all big enough, kitchen well equiped (a good can-opener is lacking). Clean.
James and Jocelyn seem a nice couple. Helpful with everything, we only saw them upon arrival.
Jamie and Jocelyn are super welcoming...you feel like part of the ohana! This house is classic, old school Hawaii. So clean and bright inside, you almost forget to go out! It sits across the street from Hilo's best beach...cool water close in, great coral, tons of turtles and fish, excellent diving when the waves are small and fun surf when the swell is up. Hilo can be rainy, but this house sits in an area the rain passes by on the way to Mauna Kea. Big lawn out front, fish pond on the side with lots to look at. This house is our go-to!
The house was beautiful and our hosts were happy to accommodate our needs. The neighbors are awesome!
This beautiful big clean property is well located and can accommodate a big family or friends. Great snorkeling across the street at Richardson's beach and ocean views
James and Jocelyne were very kind to show us around the house! The house was lovely, too, with a mini-grand-piano, which my son played with joy. Located just in front of the beach, where turtles resided(they were so peaceful).
Had very peaceful and fabulous time.
