This house is on a large lot right in a jungle paradise. The grandkids could play in the fenced yard under the many trees. I loved being close to the volcano national park. With the 7 day pass we could go in and out to enjoy different hikes, and don't miss going at night to hike and see the lava bubbling. The drive to Hilo was only 20 minutes and we enjoyed beautiful beaches to swim, snorkel and find sea turtles. The house was clean and had 3 rooms and 2 large family rooms to accommodate sleeping grandkids. The large washer/dryer was so convenient. We enjoyed barbequing in the backyard.
We really enjoyed our stay and will be back to explore this island and use this house again.
This home was the perfect Hawaii home away from home. The yard is incredible, and our kids loved being able to go out exploring, looking for lizards, or playing. You are surrounded by amazing jungle. I was working remote during our stay (great internet speeds) and loved sitting on Lani listening to birds or seeing wild pigs run through the yard. The kitchen comes well stocked so you can choose to cook at home easily.
The proximity to Volcano National Park allowed us to go in for short half-day trips, and experience all it had to offer. The close distance also allowed easy access in the evening to see the glow of the Volcano at night while it was erupting.
The city of Hilo is about 30 minutes away but we loved the smaller size compared to the busy tourist towns. Plenty of family-friendly beaches, lovely snorkeling and also if you enjoy surfing there are some smaller surfer beaches nearby with excellent beginner waves. Far more to experience than we had time for during our stay. We will be coming back to this home in the future!
We loved our stay at the Mamane house. Our kids enjoyed exploring the jungle yard, and falling asleep to the sounds of frogs each night. The location was great for access to the national park, and the drive to Hilo/beaches wasn’t bad. We really liked how kid friendly location was with pack and play, high chair and sleep mats available. Also had fast WiFi. Husband rented a bicycle from town and was able to easily store it under front stairs.
All was expected, we did not spend a lot of time in the house, but it was good for our family. Thom was very helpful.
This is a well maintained, wonderful property. We loved it. The ambience, the features are all very family friendly. Obsolutely loved the stay. Pros.The property.Near to volcano state park.Punaluu Beach is nearbyCons.Away from the main happening city. So need to experience boring drive of 1+ hour if we had any bookings in in Kona or even to airport.
