We enjoyed our stay at Ronni's ocean view home. We were greeted by a bowl of fresh fruit, a box of candy and a nice note. She and her husband live right next door and were always available.
The home had the great room concept with bedroom/living area and kitchenette divided by sliding partitions. The shower areas were beautiful, just like having your own spa ( missing soap/shampoo holders but those are in the works). You could enter the porch (lanai) through one of two sliding doors. The lanai was large with comfortable furnishings. It had motion sensor lights that you could leave on or shut off.
The area is in a nice development far away from the bustle of the city. The only night sounds are of the ocean and of the tree frogs and the occasional rooster call. It is a short drive to many of the area's attractions including the town of Hilo.
I would recommend this house for a romantic get-away for a couple. The master bed was very comfortable.Our adult sons slept in the fold out sofa bed which was a bit creaky and not comfortable for adults.
There is a grill outside, but no stove inside. The kitchen has a small sink and a small refrigerator. This cottage would be best for people who plan on eating most of their meals out and maybe microwaving the leftovers.
We would definitely want to stay there again if we were in the area. Read more
Thank you so much for the nice review! Not sure if we offered you the foam topper for the sleeper sofa, it makes a huge difference in the comfort on the sleeper sofa adding another layer to provide more cushion. We now have the shampoo/shower gel dispensers with spa products and addtional shelving in the showers for convience. We do have a new gas grill which is perfect for cooking any meals you may want to prepare. Also there is the bakery, coffee shop, and the woodshop grill for any meals out or carryout around the corner via a 2 minute walk. We really hope to see you again in the future when visiting your son and offer all repeat guests a nice discount. It was great meeting you guys!
