Vacation in rainy Hilo

Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014
We had a great time. We loved the refreshing rain showers, the lagoon with the turtles and the jungle environment right adjacent to the property.

Imperfect Condo in the Perfect Place
Aileen M. from Irvine, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 14 days in May, 2014
We have stayed at the Mauna Loa Shores, in other condos, several time, as it is a PERFECT location. Our first impression upon entering was quite good. It was very clean nicely arranged and nice furniture and decorations. Your Staff was most helpful and cooperative in setting up our reservation, and the paper instructions are great. During our stay and use of Condo 306, we noted some negative details. The mattresses on the twin beds were not good at all and made it very difficult to find a place comfortable enough to sleep. There is no A/C, so we had to use the fan and their noise interfered with our sleep. The kitchen had very limited supplies, ...salt and pepper (different from former stays in other rooms). The toaster was a small size holding only two slices of bread. There are numerous "hanging" flaws in the curtains in the bedrooms, leaving open spots, and drapes in the living room over the sliding glass doors would be an added asset. The final disappointment was the bugs! There were big, black crawling beetles and winged insects flying around the lights and the TV in the living room every night. (We did not open the doors at night, so we don't know how they got inside. And the smallest ants we've ever seen were everywhere in the kitchen, every day. Please don't feel we are just griping. PLEASE. No! We want to help you make things even better for your next guests.Mahalo,Aileen McNamara

Very neglected condo
Monika R. from Leverkusen, Germany does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in April, 2014
The kitchen and bathroom are very old and neglected. The online pictures of the kitchen - there it looks o.k. - are obviously old! For ex. the door of the cupboard under the sink is broken. The cups, the pots and lids were not clean, and I wasn't able to get them clean completely. One pot is so horrible you don't want to cook with it. Unfortunately there is only one big and one very small other one and I had to cook for four... Cleaning dishes is not easy as there is no stopper in the sink, no big basin for doing the dishes, so you use the biggest pot, but the plates don't fit in... The windows in the master bedroom are so hard to open and close that even my husband had problems doing so. The big bed is ok, but the two smaller ones are really bad. The bathroom was cleaned, but the sealings are decades old - as everything in the bathroom -, dirty and disgusting. So is the toilet, its ceramics are scratched, yellow and ugly. The living room is okay, though. The bay is really great - you can see turtles nearly every day!

Needs Serious Work
Jeanine N. from Tualatin, OR does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in March, 2014
The only good thing about this rental was the view. If I were the owner I'd be ashamed to have someone rent this unit. One of the closet doors in the small bedroom was broken off track which I called about the first day and it was never fixed in the 4 days we were there. We also needed a different fan in that room, again no response from the managers. The glassware situation is pitiful, didn't have more than one that matched and if 3 wanted to drink together at dinner 1 had to you use a wine glass. Part of one of the cupboard doors was broken off - it was just not what we should have had for the money. Lastly the note said leave the keys on the counter inside - well if you did that you can't lock the door. I would be very hesitant if at all to work with Hawaii Holiday Vacation rentals again.

A clean, older condo (could use a few repairs) with a great view
A guest from Tacoma, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014
Condo is meant for four since it has a double bed and two single beds and dining for four. Kitchen is well supplied--as well as bedding and towells. Things are old including the TV and single beds.Its 2.6 mi from Hilo and even more to any stores. Its located near a park, bay and nature trails--theres lots to do outside.oUR MAIN PROBLEM (3 OF US) WAS THERE WAS ONLY ONE SET OF KEYS AND WE DON'T ALWAYS DO THE SAME THINGS (ELEVATOR IS KEYED ALSO SO IF YOU GO OUT, YOU NEED KEYS. WE CALLED THE PROPERTY MANAGER SEVERAL TIMES BUT ONLY TALKED TO THE ANSWERING SERVICE--AND NEVER GOT MORE KEYS. THEY PROBABLY TOOK THE LOST-KEY FEE AND POCKETED IT AND KEPT US FROM DOING ALL WE WANTED TO DO. i'LL NEVER USE A PROPERTY MANAGER AGAIN---UNLESS I KNOW I CAN SPEAK TO A PERSON. Other than that the trip was good.

Nice location but needs work
Marilyn K. from Encinitas, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in February, 2014
Great location and views from the lanai. The kitchen definitely needs refurbishing and new cabinets. We only ate breakfast there so not a big problem for us. Two days the leaf blower started at 7:15 am in the park next door. Would possibly stay again but not my first choice unless improvements had been made.

Amazing location, but dated condo...
Mary R. from Clinton, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2014
We stayed here in February of 2014. The location is amazing. Right next to a beautiful snorkeling beach, loaded with fish and turtles. A really cool spot that was protected from the waves by a reef. Great for all levels of swimmer.The property is a little bit out of town, which was nice. It was really quiet, except for the coqui frogs. There's a really nice restaurant, just across the street.The condo itself was a disappointment. It reminded me of a beauty queen that has let herself go a bit. The unit might have been really nice in the 70's, but nothing seems to have been done since then. It's REALLY dated and is in need of a serious upgrade. The kitchen cabinets are falling apart. I grabbed a lower cabinet door to open it and a good sized chunk just fell apart into my hand.But, if you overlook the fact that the condo is a step above third world, it's a great place. It was large, comfortable and well stocked. The view from the deck was great.The price for the unit is low and that's probably because of the condition of the place. We're looking to return in 2015, but will probably try to find another unit in the same building that's hopefully a bit more updated.

Awesome Hilo
A guest from Cobble Hill, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 15 days in January, 2014
The location of the unit was incredible, the people that live in the building were so friendly and helpful, delightful restaurant right across the road, the park next door was perfect, turtles resting, whales jumping wow. The unit itself does need updating, bed is very hard, curtains in the bedroom need replacing, bedroom windows almost impossible to open but we didn't go there for the furnishings. Hilo itself is an awesome town, the local people so friendly. The parks and there are many on the Big Island, are so clean and welcoming. In short I would return in a heartbeat.

You can't beat the location, right next to Carlsmith lagoon where you swim with huge turtles.

It would not take much to make this propery a bit better - a good trip to Target could get some nice new towels and linens. This would help. Also the one little itty bitty piece of bathroom soap etc did not exactly give the feeling of extravagence. Like I said, it was ok.

A View of Paradise!
Karen C. from Aptos, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in August, 2012
This is an older, and a bit tired resort, but so full of the spirit of Old Hawaii, and situated in such an amazingly beautiful location, that the lack of "new and fresh" can be overlooked fairly easily. Unit #306, is in a dynamite spot for optimal view, but could use some renovation. With improvements, it could be a top-notch rental! I do not think it is worth more than $90 per night. In fact, unless certain problems are corrected, price should be reduced further. For example, glass slider and screen door track in living room needs replacement. Bedroom windows are very difficult to open. Nicer, newer amenities need to be provided, such as a "real" ironing board, ventilation fan in the bathroom, dishwasher (or at least a dish drying rack), phone book, "how to" guide for TV, VCR, etc., and a CD player/radio for music. Also, tub area should be re-caulked with white caulking.Overall, we loved our stay, and were very happy with Jessica, and other Hawaii Holiday staff, including John, the delightful maintenance man!Mahalo, and a hui hou!PS: residents of Moanaloa Shores were friendly and helpful. Including Oton, care-taker, I believe.y

Hit and Miss Condo
A guest from Calgary, AB does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012
Maunaloa Shores is centrally located in Hilo on an incredibly beautiful ocean lagoon. Shopping, volcano, awesome snorkeling all within one hour. The condo itself is in dire need of general tlc, all the faucets leak, the cleanliness of the kitchen was not good, there were tiny bugs everywhere, the beds were the worst! We bought a foamie for the queen bed, and my husband had to rotate between sleeping on the couch and a hard twin bed.After vacuuming and wiping everything down, the bugs did seem to mostly disappear. The reservations and check in was great, no problems. Although the location of the condo was good, we wouldn't stay at this particular condo again due to general maintenance, cleanliness and bed issues. I am writing a long, honest review hoping it will be helpful to you. We did enjoy our stay overall.

Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012
The properties location was great. Unfortunately the condo needs work and has been this way for a couple of years as noted by comments of other people in previous years. (ripped curtains, sliding doors bent and don't work properly, sliding screen worhtless) The kitchen worked okay except for tiny ants. Any little crumb brought them out. I would go back to Maunaloa Shores but never 306. The property management should consider not renting this unit until it is brought up to a decent standard.

Darryl L. from Fairfax, CA does not recommend this property.

We were coming from staying in the Waikoloa area so Mauna Loa shores suffered by comparison. The location near the ocean was great. The rather shabby appearance of the building took a bit of acclimation. The beds were not good. The drapes in the bedroom were ripped. The screen door to the balcony was holed and off the runner. But having said all that we acclimated and actually enjoyed the last couple days of our 5 night stay.

Kitchen and bathroom were clean but a bit funky (e.g., kitchen cabinets smell musty). House was just OK and the building is pretty ugly, but the view and location were amazing and we'd highly recommend the house to friends for those features. Our family loved swimming in Carlsmith beach park, checking out the turtles, etc. everyday and we liked Hilo a lot--very mellow and down to earth town with great access to a lot of natural beauty. Mahalo to the owners/caretakers of the house for providing a clean, comfortable base for exploration--and most of all to the Hawaiian people for letting us visit and enjoy their beautiful homeland.

Stayed for 2 days in October, 2010
I was able to make a last-minute reservation -- 2:00pm for check-in that afternoon! My trip was not for fun, as my dad was at Hilo Medical Center following a catastrophic stroke. The condo was a peaceful and comfortable haven during a very difficult time. I was soothed to sleep by the sound of the waves and coqui.My only suggestion would be to replace the carpet with tile (the carpet is the reason the unit's general condition only rated 3 stars). Carpet in a tropical climate isn't necessary and almost always smells musty (though I must admit that I am not a big fan of carpet in any climate!).Thank you for a peaceful stay during a difficult time.

We never tied of the view. We really appreciated the WiFi - it allowed us to keep up our travel blog.

Stayed for 3 days in August, 2010
We ended up staying at a different accommodation. We received an upgrade in a lovely house next to a lagoon due to a hiccup on our arrival. The assistance we received definitely helped us leave the shaky start behind us. We had a wonderful time and we thank the management the way their handled the situation.

We replaced the modem when guest told us it wasn't working properly. And guest was trying to use TV when DVD was on which is why the TV was operator error!

We especially loved watching the green sea turtles that lived in the near-by lagoons. And discovering the whales off the coast was an added bonus.

Feedback on Mauna Loa Shores 306
Joint Astronomy C. from Hilo, HI does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 23 days in November, 2009
The condo was very shabby. It could do with some updating, especially the kitchen. I scratched my leg badly on the chair and the sofa springs were just awful. The utensils etc were clean but didn't feel comfortable to use. The bed linen was well used and again not comfortable to use so I buy my own. The condo had a very bad smell, airless.

The location is fantastic and the properties, although a little dated are clean and comfortable. The only negative comment I would have is that the couch could do with replacing - not very comfortable at all.

As in previous years, the "upgrade" at Avis was not honored, but overall I was very happy with my arrangements through you.

Great view, nice complex
Gregg H. from Goleta, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in June, 2009
Our first impression when entering our condo was the great view out the balcony. The ocean and tidepool shows through a thick jungle foliage than backs up to the property. The pool was warmer and larger than we expected. We spent hours hanging out there and getting to know the residents.The unit was clean and nicely furnished; there was even snorkel and beach gear in the guest closet. The pretty beach park next door had good swimming and snorkeling in the large tide pools and the local beachgoers were friendly.The location was a bit off the beaten path, about 5 minutes from town, with some industrial areas and less desirable beaches down the road, but we had no problems doing the short drive every day. Our master bedroom had the same great view as the living room and we slept well at night, seneraded by the sounds of the ocean and the frogs that inhabit the jungle. We had a great stay and love the sleepier, rainforest environs of Hilo and the nearby Puna coast. We hope to come back again.

bathtub walls were mildewed, cockroaches in the kitchen, kitchen utencils, dishes, pots and pans were so dirty that I had to wash most of them. only clean things were refregirator and stove! kitchen floor was dirty and sticky carpet looked as though not v acuumed(hair and nail clippings) the view and access to water made tolerable but frogs drove me crazy at night I wished there was a air condition!

Rustic but a great location and view
A guest from Maplewood, MN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 10 days in March, 2009
We love the location and have stayed in this unit over 5 months during the last year and a half. The unit view of the ocean is great but the coach spring was broken, masterbed to hard, lack of cross ventilation, and the bathroom orders were very distracting.

Ocean and Turtles
A guest from Maplewood, MN recommends this property.
Stayed for 29 days in February, 2009
Staying in Hilo is a laid back experience. We love its multi culture and visiting events at the U of H. Being close to the ocean is a must for whale watching. Condo 306 is in need of new beds and remodeling of bathroom and kitchen to enjoy it more. Management is helpful and kind and quick to answer our needs.

Swim with the turtles at Mauna Loa Shores
Martine W. from Honolulu, HI recommends this property.
Stayed for 30 days in November, 2008
Lovely place to stay - great swim hole, lovely condo, excellent service overall. Sharene and Su take calls and give advice at all hours and are real pros! Only flaw was the cleaning service - in 2 mths, they never showed up despite 3 phone discussions.

Martine's working stay at Mauna Loa
Martine W. from Honolulu, HI recommends this property.
Stayed for 30 days in October, 2008
I never did receive a cleaning, tho I was contacted 3 times to set it up, and even suggested a week while I would be out of town. Also, the kitchen floor had not been washed when I moved in - very sticky and grimy...But the rest of the apt was clean and the repairs I requested were done in a timely manner.I highly recommend bug traps for cockroaches, and a trash can with a lid that closes tight - to avoid feeding cockroaches in the kitchen.Also recommend stocking basics like olive oil, vinegar, salt & pepper, mayo, mustard, as these are basics that folks need.
