Our family had a great stay at Steve and Sharon's home. We were welcomed by a clean home and nice welcome treats of chocolates and fruit. Everything was just as described and is even thoughtfully stocked with snorkel gear, beach towels, and coolers. The location is very convenient for getting to Hilo and to Volcano National Park. We felt very comfortable staying here. While planning for our visit, Sharon was quick to respond to our questions. We appreciate that too.
We had a great experience at this cottage! Description of the cottage was accurate, no surprises. Chocolates and other treats waiting for us when we arrived! Nice comfortable place to relax after a full day of adventures. It is a corner lot, so it's by the road, but that didn't bother us too much. Seems to be very little traffic on that road at night. Conveniently located for everything we wanted to do! We didn't meet Sharon in person, but she was very nice, accommodating and easy to get ahold of. The notebook she put together at the cottage has a lot of useful information. We got good use out of the snorkel gear! If we ever visit the big Island again, we would stay here. Thank you Steve and Sharon!
We had a wonderful stay at this house! It was perfect for a couple! We loved the large back yard and listening to all the Coqui's at night. It was close to nice tide pools that we frequented a lot during our stay. We used the provided snorkel gear and ice chest almost every day! Great location!

Good experience at this airbnb. Clean, and great location. It gets pretty humid inside the house and hot within the bedroom at night because the walls and windows aren't really insulating, but it's Hilo, so the humidity can't be a big surprise. Great lighting, quiet neighborhood, central to most attractions on the east coast. Host was very easy to contact and talk to. Thank you!
We loved this place! It was actually better than advertised with many extras to give it more of an at home feel. It was very private, and even though there was no heating or cooling, it stayed very comfortable. It would have been nice if somebody would had met with us (or called ) during our stay. Otherwise, If they will have us, we would love to return.

It looked like the clean up was half made. We've had the flowers and the fruit basket from the last guests. Even though a reminder was made for the baby pack and play two days prior to our arrival, we had to spend the first night without it. A bad startup to our stay and a bad first impression.
Otherwise, the place was really convenient, was as described and communications with Sharon were good, always getting quick responses.
I have no excuse for this, other than I am in Indiana and trusted my property manager to clean and make sure my home was prepared for a guest to stay. I will take care and make sure does not happen again and appreciate the info. I am buying a pack n play and will not be dependent on someone else to provide for a guest. I appreciate the feed back and will do my best to address the matters you have brought up.
I have worked in construction all my adult life. My wife and I are retiring shortly and want to make Hawaii our new home. This is why we bought a home in Hawaii so we can enjoy the clean tropical weather. We also want other people to have the opportunity to enjoy this as well and decided to use our home as a vacation rental till that time. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we have when we have been on the Big Island in Hawaii.
