Vacation Condo Rental Description:



MAUNALOA SHORES IS LOCATED IN KEAUKAHA in the heart of a great recreational area but less than 10 minutes from downtown Hilo with shopping, entertainment, and restaurants. Keaukaha spans about 4 miles with parks and a variety of swimming lagoons, some of which are calm enough for toddlers year-round. It's a perfect location for a holiday stay or if you are in town for a temporary assignment.

THIS 2-BEDROOM, 5TH-FLOOR Maunaloa Shores condo is a desirable end unit with wonderful views of the magnificent trees at Carlsmith Park as well as views of the lagoons and the ocean beyond. You will also enjoy views of Mauna Kea and Pu'u O'o, the active vent of Kilauea volcano. You can enjoy these views from your own private lanai (balcony), from the living area, and also from the large master bedroom. If you must work while visiting, the condo has a desk in the master bedroom with a telephone. We also provide free high-speed Internet.

501 HAS A BEAUTIFUL, FULLY EQUIPPED, UPGRADED KITCHEN with custom cabinets, recessed lighting, and marble countertops. A tiled mural provides a feeling of privacy and enhances the beauty of the kitchen. Enjoy the convenience of dining at the counter or enjoy your morning cup of coffee on the lanai. The picturesque setting is a nice way to start your day in the quiet of the morning dawn.

WHEN YOU'RE READY TO GO SWIMMING, you can swim in the large pool at Maunaloa Shores or swim and snorkel next door at Carlsmith Park. The park is a popular place to get into the water because of the protected lagoons. You may even want to have a picnic.

THE LIVING ROOM HAS ISLAND-STYLE FURNISHINGS, cable TV, a VCR/DVD player, and mini-stereo with radio and CD player. The condo is tiled throughout, which is most suitable for Hawaii's tropical climate.

ENJOY A GOOD NIGHT'S REST on the high quality queen mattresses in both bedrooms. If you enjoy reading in bed, you'll appreciate the lamps on each side of the bed. The upgraded bathroom has a combination tub/shower with beautiful, artistic tiles.

There is a coin-operated washer/dryer available on every floor of the complex for your convenience. We are happy to confirm non-smokers only in this condo. This is a very comfortable and enjoyable place to stay in Hilo. We never get tired of the beauty this location has to offer!

Sally M. from Carrollton, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014
We really liked the space in this unit. Very comfortable and secure with a locking screen door. Located next to a city park and lagoon. Nice view. There were enough cooking utensils and cookware to make this unit like a home.

We enjoyed our stay at the apartement, only issue was the couch, that was in a very bad shape and needs to be replaced. Rest of the furniture was good, kitchen very good. Otherwise great views and a very nice beach park for snorkeling and swimming right around the corner.

Lovely condo in Hilo
Marilyn K. from Encinitas, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in November, 2013
This was our second stay in the unit. Love the view from the balcony over looking the ponds with all the ducks and birds. We were lulled to sleep by the sounds of surf and coqui frogs.My one complaint is the new plastic chairs on the balcony. They tend to crack and need some kind of covering on them. We put towels on them to avoid getting pinched when wearing shorts.MLS seems to be a mix of rentals and full time residents. Everyone we met was very friendly.Since we are in town every few months on business, we hope to use #501 again.

Great condo next to great snorkeling beach park
A guest from Nanaimo, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013
The apartment was great, on the 5th floor on the side of the building overlooking the beach park with huge trees and part view of the ocean. The condo was well equipped, great kitchen but no airconditioner and while it was not terribly hot, it was very humid/sticky. The building itself is older and has seen better days, but is clean and maintained well. There was also a pool surrounded by concrete walls and ground, but maintained well it appeared.

Ines K. from Bochum, NRW recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2013
We really liked the appartment. At arrival the outside of the building looked not that inviting, but the inside of the appartment was really nice. The location right beside the beach park is nice too. On this side of the island you hear the frogs at night, but we got used to it and knew this from our last vacations. A few more towels and air-condition would have been good. We had great stay and can really recommend this appartment.

Great place, good location, just a bit of noise to consider
Reviewed by: Steven B. recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013
The property and facilities were very good and the key system etc worked well. We had no problems at all with the apartment and it comfortably suited 4 adults. The local beach parks are a great asset with good swimming and turtles too.the only small issue was noise from the road, the airport, and a local dog that barked until after midnight most nights. If you are a light sleeper it may not be for you. You can shut the windows which blocks out 90% of it, but then it is nice to have the sea breeze in when it is hot and humid.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Aloha Coast RealtyHawaii Holiday Vac. Rentals
Unfortunately, the convenience of the Maunaloa Shores complex is balanced by being right in town. The plane flights end early (this IS Hilo, after all) and so does the road noise. I've never heard about the barking dog, though. We'll have to look into that.

Great stay in Hilo
William K. from Encinidas, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2013
We have stayed at MLS Condos before but not as nice a location as 501. We enjoyed having our coffee, fresh papayas and apple bananas from the Farmers Market on the balcony each morning while enjoying the wonderful views. The condo had everything we needed and was clean. Only complaints were the blinds in the bedroom that made a lot of noise when there was any breeze (which was most of the time) and the reclining chair with the big hole in the upholstry which took away from the ambiance of the place.

Very Good Photos
Chris G. from Mount Martha, Victoria does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in December, 2012
Condo looked to be clean when we first arrived however it had a dank, damp and had a body odour smell about it. The kitchen was well presented but had not had a good scrub in a long time. The shower head is also well over due for replacement as was the furniture. The building itself is old and creepy and at night looks like the set of a slasher film. Having said that the view from the condo is really nice. We were booked in to stay 3 nights but only stayed two, we couldn't wait to get back to Kona. We were on holiday and the last thing I wanted to do was call and complain and ask for a refund. In hindsight, this was the worst accommodation we experienced in 3 week stay in Hawaii (travelling all islands, accommodation ranged from very basic 1 star to very fancy 5 star).

Hilo visit
A guest from Snohomish, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2012
The condo was great and the location next to the beach was fabulous. I particularly liked that the condo was located at the corner end of the high rise because then we had windows on two sides of the condo and were able to get a great cross draft to cool down as the property only had fans. It also had a locking screen door which also helped cool things down without being wide open. None of the other apartments I saw had these. Being at the end of the building where no one walked by added to the sense of privacy rare in a high rise. On the negative side the pool was green and unusable. They did clean it at the end of our stay but we had hoped to use it daily and were disappointed that it was unavailable. Further the TV was old and there was no DVD player...only a VHS player...quite antiquated. But fortunately they did have free wifi and we were able to watch films on our iPad. I would use this property again.

Property was clean and in good condition, only problem was could not get access to room on first night as wrong keys had been placed in the key box and it was difficult to get a hold of someone to get correct keys.

Stayed for 15 days in September, 2012
Pros - Good location, lots of air flow & fans, well equipped unit, courteous office staff and helpful maintenance man.Cons - Kichen garbage can cover is broken, ceiling light in kitchen kept blinking, maybe due to CFL bulb being in an enclosed fixture, first aid kit needs to be restocked, blinds in the master BR can't be opened which restricts air flow. My wife almost fell through the screen trying to fix it.

Hilo Rental
James C. from San Jose, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in September, 2012
The property was very clean and was very well stocked with kitchen supplies (the best of the 3 rentals we had on this trip). We checked in around 5PM. We called the property manager immediately about holes in the screens and missing vertical blind slats in both bedrooms and the living room. They had someone come out the next day to patch the screens and repair the blinds. The fans were great at helping cool the unit off at night (and helped block out street noise) and the screened security door allowed us to leave the front door open in the evening to catch the breeze but still feel secure. The unit location is next to a park/beach and close to shopping, restaurants, other beaches and Hilo airport but the neighborhood was soso. Keep in mind we don't know how it compares to other neighborhoods in Hilo and Hilo does not appear as affluent as Kona. We met several permanent residents of the building, mostly retirees, and they were very nice, as was the building manager. Two suggestions: clean the couch upolstery periodically and leave a broom and dust pan so we can sweep up after ourselves as the white tile floor shows everything. We did have to dispose of 3 to 4 small dead roaches we found in the living room over the course of our stay. Since they were dead, I assume the unit is sprayed regularly.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Aloha Coast Realty, LLC/Hawaii Holiday Vac. Rentals
Thanks for your nice review! When you said that you would not recommend it to others did you mean this unit, the building or the area? We can work with the owners to try to fix things wrong with the unit, but we can't do much about Maunaloa Shores as a whole or Hilo in general. Hilo is "old Hawaii" and is less wealthy than some areas in Hawaii. It is a little slower-paced and less touristy. For many of us that love it, that is part of its charm.

We stayed for a few days and found it a pleasant place to stay. The condo complex was very peaceful and was close to a nice park. The park had a nice swimming area, but was cold. We enjoyed relaxing on the lanai and enjoy watching the birds in the trees at the park next door. The rooms were clean and the kitchen was great for cooking. The location was nice but would require a vehicle as it is about 10 minutes out of the downtown hilo area.

A guest from Battle Ground, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in May, 2011
The Pros:Great location in KeaukahaNice private end unit2 br condo for $100 is the best value in Hawai?iAssigned parkingLaundry on the same floorFully (over)stocked kitchen, although I was surprised when I couldn't find a whisk, seemed like there was everything else there! :-) Fast internet with modem in room so I could hook up my own Wireless was a very nice surprise.There is a very nice mountain view from the second bedroom, and while the views in the other rooms are mostly obstructed by trees on the property, it was still nice and you get "peek a boo" glimpses of the water..The Cons:The couch was very uncomfortable for us(it "aggravated" our backs). In addition to it not being comfortable, there is a cover over the cushions(because the cushions are ratty and falling apart.) The way the cover bunches up around you is annoying.The shower curtain is mounted crooked, The side that is near the head is only about 2 feet from the wall, making things very cramped.Only 2 towels? There is a laundry, but 2 towels a day is not enough for 2 people on a Hawai?ian vacation by the beach.I could be mistaken, but the bed in the second room seemed like a Full and not Queen. We both didn't fit in it as well as the one in the master...The Kitchen, while beautifully remodeled and very well stocked, is a functional nightmare. There is no workspace near the stove, you can't even really stand directly in front of what you are cooking because you are cramped in on both sides by the fridge and stove. It was hard to cook in and forget more than one person in there.We were overall satisfied with the value, and plan on staying at Mauna Loa Shores whenever we go to Big Island, however we will not be renting unit 501 again.Thanks, we had a great time there!

The building outside does not look too good but the unit was convenient. The rooms was not small , the bathroom was okay and the set up of the kitchen was great.

Mauna Loa Shores is fine if you don't need a clean pool!
Kendra H. from T.O., CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2010
The condo is very small but also very nice and well equipt. My kids were very disappointed that they did not get to go swimming 4 out of the 5 days that we were there because after the 1st day the pool was closed and turned very green when we left. We were all very disappointed with this because of the fact that the ocean at the beach park next door was freezing cold. Although it was beautiful, it had a very small beach area (But this IS true with most of the Hilo side of the Island. Overall the condo was nice and well kept up.

Exceeded Expectation
Janice Z. from Apache Junction, AZ recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in July, 2010
My two sisters and I were very pleased with the condition of the condo. We had concerns when we first walked up to the building since it is in need of some TLC. The elevators are old and one had smelly carpeting hanging on the walls (we assumed it was for protection from residents moving furniture). However we were pleasantly surprised when we entered the unit. It was clean and nicely furnished down to the folding chairs and beach towels for the beach. The view of the park and Hilo Bay was wonderful. Two suggestions for property manager: balance fan in the bedroom facing the park and PLEASE provide trash bags that fit the waste basket. The ones provided were small and constantly fell into the can.I would use this property again and will recommend it to others.

Wrong choice
A guest from Yokohama, NA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in June, 2010
We are a couple of elderly people just interested in taking a nice and leasuring walking and not interested in swimming or snorkeling. The place would be good place for a young family with kids who can spend their time in playing by the sea.We also like to spend a lot of time on lanai doing a lot of reading or just doing nothing. But, the lanai at this place was not all that clean and pleasant for the purpose. We also felt a little uneasy about eating on the kitchen counter. But, it is all our fault. We just picked a wrong place without much advance research done.

Very nice and peaceful.
A guest from Mililani, HI recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in May, 2010
Very nice place to stay. Quiet and convenient. Major supermarkets and stores nearby, about a 15 minute drive. Carlsmith park next door is very nice place to picnic and swim but the water is pretty cold. The pool at the condo was closed for repairs while we were there, but I'm sure it will be re-opened soon. Looking forward to staying there again in the future.

Nice Location & Great Views
A guest from Vancouver, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2010
The unit we were in was very tastefully done. It was clean and had been remodeled. The building, however, was in poor shape--i.e. the elevator is showing its age, other units in the building looked pretty grim, the pool was small and out-of-date. While the location of the condo was in a nice area, one had to travel through an industrial part of town to get there. The beach and park next to the condo were very picturesque.

Unit 501 July 15-18
A guest from Germantown Hills, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2009
Great location in terms of being close to the airport, Hilo and other sights. The unit itself was wonderfull although A/C would have been nice on the evenings it rained. The newly remodeled kitchen was great and had everything we needed. One recommendation is to replace the screen door to the deck. It doesn't close completely and when left that way we had ants visit us over night. The complex was clean but could use some maintainance and a fresh coat of paint.

Another Funtastic Weekend!!
A guest from Mililani, HI recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2009
This is the second time we stayed at Mauna Loa Shores and again had a very pleasant experience. The location is convenient and my children enjoy having access to both the beach or the pool right there to choose from. When visiting Hilo again, we will be back to stay at Mauna Loa Shores.

The unit was immaculate, very well and tastefully appointed, thoughtfully stocked with staples. It was very easy to live there. Location can not be more beautiful; Carlsmith Park is a joy. We'll definitely return.

Only one negative comment: from the picture on the Internet we expected a much larger livingroom. The area actually is very small and eating at thos overly high stools is awkward. Maybe you could change the photo to make it more realistic or give the dimensions of the unit.

A Very Enjoyable Accommodation
Robert S. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in November, 2008
My main criticism is that the unit is over-furnished with an ugly 4-poster bed in the master bedroom and an unnecessary entertainment center in the living room. These large pieces of furniture overwhelm the limited space in the unit. Also, the DVD player did not work properly. The internet connection should be upgraded to wireless. I would have upgraded the kitchen differently if I had done the remodel, because I thought the space could have been utilized more effectively. All-in-all, I loved the apt. and location and hope to stay there again.
