I am fortunate to have returned to the cottage, and as always, I had a wonderful stay. I am in Hilo frequently for work (hence the multiple stays) and it is something I look forward to. I am still taken away by the amazing views and love the cooler temperature at the cottage location! Many thanks to Val for continued aloha and hospitality!

I highly recommend a stay at Valerie's cottage and I can't say enough nice things about my experience! It is a very cute space that is clean and well maintained. I felt so welcomed and right at home. The cottage is very spacious and I really like setup. The views are beautiful and the area is quiet and peaceful. And the location is still so close to town! The animals are adorable and well behaved (they are in the back, so don't worry about them if you aren't quite an animal person). The cottage has more amenities than I needed, which to me just reflects how thoughtful Valerie is as a host. Valerie showed so much aloha and hospitality! Such a wonderful person! I booked two stays already, both were last minute and I was fortunate the cottage was available. Valerie was very good about responding and communicating; it made my trip less stressful because I was able to book the place with ease. Couldn't have asked for a better host! Again, highly recommend and I will definitely be back! Thank you to Valerie for an amazing stay!
