Great check-in experience

Perfect little home base tucked away downtown in Hilo with bright light and ocean breeze. This room has a queen bed and is perfect for couples. Located just 5-10 minutes walk or drive from the airport, groceries, banks, pharmacy, restaurants, beaches, waterfalls, and more.
Gardens surround the house, making it feel like a secret urban garden oasis. Great spot for east Hawaii exploration, or islandwide adventures. Simple and clean little crash pad, great for travelers.

Michael's space is perfectly located in the mix of Hilo. It is small and cozy with all the thing you need. The house is very close to the house next door so be aware you may be listening to their tv and conversation. There was a friendly cat to greet me when I arrived;-)

A convenient location hidden inside a mini jungle. Michael was easy to communicate and quick to response. It’s a good place stay if you are traveling on budget.
