It’s a Hideaway
Very nicely appointed house. We were far away from be noise if Hilo and the city in a great little subdivision. Beautiful property total secluded
We enjoyed our stay! Had everything we needed, very relaxing:
Overall, I recommend
First of all I do recommend this property as it is hands down the best I have rented in HI. There were a couple factors that kept me from giving this 5 stars.
First, the place was clean but not very clean. The sponge for doing the dishes was at least a month old and it was obvious. There was no dish soap. There was a significant amount of hair found on the floor in living area and bathroom. The dishes in the cabinet needed to be scrubbed before using them.
The listing stated there is a hair dryer but that is only partly true. The hair dryer was european and could not be plugged into the wall. There is no AC here and one of the fans was not working. We reported the lack of dish soap, the non working fan and the old sponge to the property manager. She advised she will be over shortly to remedy. We told her we would not be there but we don't mind if she made entry in our absence. She brought dish soap and left it on the table outside, There was no sponge with it and the fan was not moved from its location or fixed making for a pretty hot stay in this cabin.
I will say the grounds are pretty well maintained and quite private which we really wanted. We were thrown off a bit by the 2 junk cars on the property near the front entrance. We loved the sounds of the coqui frogs at night which are quite loud. If you need silence when you sleep, this is not the place for you. The mosquitos were present but nowhere near as bad as expected. We didn't need to wear repellent while we were there and we did spend a lot of time on the lanai into the early evening.
This place is a gem overall but if you are expecting the Ritz, you will need to book the Ritz.
Aloha Timothy, We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Jungalow. We are also happy to hear that it is the best place you have stayed in Hawaii. We are sorry that there were a few things that didn’t meet your expectations. It is our highest concern that our guests are taken care of and have a great experience.
The European hairdryer that you found in the closet was left by a recent guest. The real hairdryer was located in the top drawer under the bathroom sink. We overstock the house with common household items so our guests won’t run out. There are always extra sponges and soap under the sink and more sponges are in the hall closet. Thank you for letting us know about the fan. It has been replaced. We wish you would have given us the opportunity to address these issues during your stay so you could have enjoyed your visit even more.
This place is well kept super clean and super cute
Beautiful property, centrally located, quiet neighborhood
The house is really cute. The jungalow is exactly how it's described. The grounds are well maintained. The kitchen is well stocked. The neighborhood is extremely quiet. During the 12 days there we heard no street traffic.
There was a big storm on the 3rd night there and the cable/internet went out. The owner/manager were prompt in replying when I called to let them know it was out.
A love little house in a quiet neighborhood
This is a wonderful little house with the best kitchen ever!!! Like cooking at home, which is important to me. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom adequate, and indoor and outdoor places to relax. We had a wonderful stay here and highly recommend it! The only things would make it better are a couple of beach chars and a b-b-q.
