traveler reviews for this hilo house rental

What a paradise location!

Review submitted: June 21, 2008   Date of arrival: June 3, 2008

My husband and I were looking for a property that was close to both the Hilo area and the volcanoes so this seemed in the middle of both. I liked the fact that it wasn't commercial with lots of people and seemed private.

What a beautiful property and the owners were very nice to deal with in setting up the reservation. They sent plenty of information that we needed in advance of our arrival.

Once we got to the island and located Mika Lani (excellent directions, by the way !!!) , we were amazed to find a wonderful home full of amenities and right on the water. No loud surf, but just the gentle tidal pools that were loaded with fish. Snorkeling was AMAZING and my husband used 3 rolls of films shooting the coral and fish in his underwater camera.

We had breakfast on the front lanai every morning to the amazing views and the birds chirping and fish jumping. What a relaxing place. You will love the serenity here.

The facility is REALLY clean, down to the BBQ Grill, hottub, and washer and dryer. There is nothing that you will need that this home doesn't supply. There are snorkel masks, fins, kayaks, towels, a nice welcoming basket of goodies and even champagne. The kitchen is VERY well equipped! Everything was thought of by the gracious hosts.

We will come back to the islands at some point and we will stay at Mika Lani again. We highly recommend this vacation rental!

Don't hesitate to rent this spot. For the price, you'll have a wonderful spot that would be hard to beat.

We highly recommend Mika Lani!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

In Love with the Mika Lani!

Review submitted: August 9, 2014   Date of arrival: July 9, 2014

This is the most amazing place for 2 people who want to experience a romantic getaway. if you decide to stay here all you are going to need to bring are your swim suits and your fresh food and beverage's. Everything else that you might need is provided. There are 2 bikes, 2 kayaks, an assortment of different sizes of snorkeling gear, water toys, games, movies, books, a washer & dryer, outside cloths line, outdoor shower, gas bbq, oceanfront jacuzzi, 2 hammocks, a huge wrap around lanai with patio furniture, the whole property is gated and locked. The kitchen is equipped with appliances, dishes, silverware, pots & pans, spices, condiments. There are 2 beautiful bathrooms, a private bedroom with a queen size bed, and the views from this house are two die for. The neighborhood is quite, safe and serene. The owners were wonderful to work with and when the time came she sent us directions that were spot on. When we arrived there was a gift basket and a bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge while Hawaiian music played softly in the background. One of the best things about staying here is the protected snorkel bay right outside your back door. We snorkeled and kayaked every day. This was the highlight of our trip. We saw the most amazing fish and coral formations while swimming in the gentle calm water. I am in love with this place. I am homesick even now as I type. Never in my life have I ever wanted to return to the same place twice until now. I am happy to say that I have already booked our next trip to this beautiful home and look forward to walking through her doors again. Mahalo Jamie and Noi for sharing your beautiful home!
