“Great setting, spacious and secure condo”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Surrounded by nature, including 3 beautiful turtles in the lagoon.....they ate grass right out of our hands! The condo was spacious and clean and included beach towels, masks, snorkels and fins and floatation noodles and boards. It was great to sit on the lanai in the early morning and watch the sunrise over the ocean. While each room had a fan, I would have appreciated air conditioning.

Wow, that turtle experience sounds amazing. Everyone knows that, like any wild creature, you are supposed to leave them alone, but that's hard to do when they seem as interested in you as you are in them.

Unfortunately, in part because the condo fees pay the electricity, Maunaloa Shores won't allow anyone to install air conditioning. We agree, it would be nice.

“Comfortable and Good Value”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My son was graduating from Hawaii University at Hilo and we picked this place for a week's stay. The condo is not far from town, within a 10 minute drive from the airport and is close to shops and restaurants. If you've visited this side of the Big Island you know that it can be humid and so be prepared to use all the fans in the condo. It's a very well equipped unit, everything you could or would need. Plenty of towels, things for the beach (which we did not use but were happy to see), fully stocked kitchen, large fridge, microwave. It's very quiet except for the evening chorus of frogs and the morning chorus of birds! Would have been nice to have black outs in the bedrooms but really, aside from that, no complaints at all. I would recommend this place.

“Great location with beautiful view”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is a wonderful condo centrally located about 5 miles from downtown hilo. It's right next to a wonderful public beach/park with beautiful views of the ocean. The condo was very well stocked with swimming toys, towels and full kitchen supplies. It also had a large t.v. which we primarily used to watch movies. The pool was clean and warm but the ocean was so close that it really wasn't necessary for our needs. The coqui frogs sang us to sleep every night but may be an issue for those who require total quiet to sleep. For me it was wonderful. We will definitely stay there again on our next Hawaiian adventure.

“Great Condo on the Beautiful Big Island”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014
1
person found this review helpful

This great condo in Hilo was a great base camp for us to go explore the Big Island everyday. It had everything we needed to be comfortable and it was in a beautiful setting. The view from the lanai was spectacular. Looking out over the ocean, with black rocks, white sand, and a great lagoon. Right next to it was this rainforest/jungle, with birds singing during the day and frogs croaking at night. The suggestions and guide books in the condo were a great resource. There was also plenty of gear to go swim with the amazing sea turtles that are in the lagoon! It rains a lot in Hilo so be prepared for that, but there's so much to see and do on the Big Island that the rain doesn't matter much. Make sure to visit the Hawaii Botanical Gardens, see the waterfalls, swim with the turtles, visit the volcano, drive to the west coast, and visit the little store/ice cream parlor/hostel just down the road for a small botanical garden you can walk through while enjoying some delicious ice cream. Great condo, very convenient, great price, well decorated and well equipped.

“Location great, view good. Generaly ok, needs some work on cleaning”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Generally fair, the floors in the bedroom dirty with someone else's deodorant under the side table and container under the tv cabinet we did not use. the worst was the slimy, black moldy bath mat tub mat.(which we folded up and placed in the garbage can) in the bathroom we had to disinfect the tub before using and then shower making sure we didn't touch the shower curtain which was also black mold the lower third.
When we pay a good cleaning fee I would expect more.

“Nice place , But the RAIN WAS AWFULL!!!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 for a stay in December 2013

This was a nice Condo, Definately FULLY Equipped. But it RAINS WAY TOO MUCH. I was told by the company that rented it that it was one of the best places on the island. Well I live in Washington State where it rains alot and when I go on vacation it's to get away from the rain. We had flood warnings and had to leave early in the morning on our last day because of the flooding. Its a nice place but if you want sun...Stay in Kona. We spent every day driving over to Kona. I felt like I ruined our vacation by choosing such a rainy place.

But the area is beautiful and definately worth visiting.

The Hilo area does get a lot of rain and its incredibly variable. There will be times of tremendous downpour (like you experienced) and times of no rain for weeks or even months. We never know and can never predict. And last week, the Hilo side was bright and sunny and the rain was pouring down on Kona - really confusing everyone. As you said, it is beautiful so we hope you give it another chance. Its not always that rainy, unless it is. ;-)
