Ocean front condo next to Reeds Bay in Hilo


Home Description

There is no other condo building on the Big Island of Hawaii this close to the water. You are so close to the water, that you can hear the water in Hilo Bay lapping the shore about 20 feet from the balcony.

The condo is just 5 minutes by taxi--less than 2 miles Hilo International Airport. With 24-hour notice, rental cars range between $200 - $300 per week. Ocean fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc., are easily accessible from this location. Walk, bicycle, taxi or take the "free" city bus to "old town" Hilo.

Downtown Hilo is a quaint, quiet, artistic city that maintains the early Hawaiian atmosphere. There are numerous authentic, family-owned Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean and Japanese restaurants as well as American, Mexican, and fast food chains. On Saturday and Wednesday mornings, treat yourself to the Farmer's market in downtown Hilo. There you can find organic locally grown fruits and vegetables. There are several health food stores, some offer hot, ready to eat food items. The fact is, I eat better, healthier foods when I'm at the condo than anywhere else I stay.

Just minutes away, in the newer section of town, you'll find a shopping mall, Macy's, Sears, Ross, Walmart, Hilo Hatties and other stores.

The condo has a kitchenette with a full size refridgerator making it easy for you to stock up and stay in. Enjoy a walk along "Banyon drive" which curves around Hilo Bay, past Hundred-year old Banyan trees grace the drive that lead to Coconut Island and Lilikulani Park. Stay a while, clear your head and refresh your spirit.

Awesome Location, Awesome View

Well, this was an amazing find... I visited my Mom for a week, she has retired in Hilo, and this was the perfect spot for me! This is a corner unit on the 3rd floor and so private. Looking at the ocean was my favorite thing to do. If you get to stay here your vacation will be Awesome too! I'm up early today, my final day here, and the sun is slowly rising... I plan to stay here next time I come back

Basic studio apartment in a good location in Hilo

The location on Banyan drive is great. Right next to the park and overlooking the water. The apartment itself is a basic studio and good for 2-3 people. It has a kitchen with most of what you would need. We prepared a quick breakfast every morning before heading out. It's a good place if all you intend on doing is being out exploring all day and coming back to sleep. The AC does not work so we left the french doors open to let the air in. Not sure how this would be in the warmer months but in March it was alright.

Loved our Hilo stay

Location, location, location and what a view! While it is not the fanciest digs in town, Joseph's studio condo is a wonderful spot to kick off the sandals and relax for a few days. It's not a fancy place, but is really comfortable and well equipped and located in a very nice neighbourhood with some great restaurants nearby, either walking distance or on the bikes that are there for use during your stay. The building needs some love, but the other tenants were very friendly and pleasant. Keeping the windows open at night, the birdsong symphony coupled with lapping waves below will guarantee a great sleep. Very good phone interaction with the owner and we would definitely rent on a return visit. Thanks Joseph :-)

Location. Price. Value

We booked this room almost at the last minute after our other plans where cancelled on us. We were going to cancel our vacation until we found this deal. It was cheap enough to save our trip. Sure, the building is a little rough but our room was nice. Great location. Nice view of the water. Very quiet. No one bothered us and the front desk and security people were very nice. The hotel lacks the normal amenities but so what? There are many restaurants within walking distance and downtown Hilo is only 1 mile away. Hey, if you want to stay in your room your entire vacation this is not the place for you but if you want a great deal at a great location at an unbeatable price, this is it. Mahalo!
