Beautiful Ocean front home. Great location. Made our trip to Hawai'i perfect. Volcano, tidepools, snorkeling, Hilo, all within 30 minutes. We will stay here again.

“Stunning location on the lava cliffs above the ocean”
Reviewed 11 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I was in Hawaii with my partner celebrating his 50th birthday.

We stayed in this villa for 5 nights. We wanted to explore the volcanic side of the island, having stayed in the Kona area for the first half of our trip.

This was the perfect base to visit Hilo, the Volcano National Park, Rainbow Falls (and other waterfalls), Mauna Kea etc. Less than an hour's drive to each of the above.

The villa is well appointed with everything you could possibly need - a home from home. There was a basket of treats left for us and lots of guide books and information about the area. There are several large supermarkets less than half an hour drive away towards Hilo.

There are air conditioning units in each of the bedrooms, but ceiling fans elsewhere. The windows all have screens so they can be opened to let the air through without letting the bugs in - ideal.

We had perfect sunny weather throughout our stay and made full use of the pool and hot tub. It was lovely to sit out and hear the ocean waves crashing into the cliffs. We also used the gas BBQ and lit the flaming torches each evening after sunset.

A beautiful setting and very private.

“Unbelievable Oceanfront View, Heated Pool, Jacuzzi, most relaxing vacation we have ever had”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

Communicating with the owners was very easy. We have never gone on a trip so far from home before (we live in New England) and we needed a place to stay for a friend's wedding in Hilo. We didn't just want to stay at a hotel for a few days, and I found this listing on TripAdvisor. The price was very reasonable for the week, we shared the home with my sister and her boyfriend. The house was easy to find, they provided everything you'd need including towels, coffee for the morning and even umbrellas!

The view was amazing, we were lucky enough to see turtles and even dolphins swim by. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and lounging in the hot tub. Waking up at Hale Shangrila was like waking up in paradise. There were incredible sunrises and even though it did rain almost every day while we were there, it was for short periods of time and the house was so comfortable we didn't mind. We ate most of our meals outside on the lanai, we can't say enough about the view!

The property is also only about a 15-20 minute drive to Hilo, so if we needed anything it was very easy to drive to Walmart and the grocery store.

The house didn't have air conditioning and we were a little nervous about that but we were pleasantly surprised that we really didn't need it, the fans were enough.

“Private Ocean front”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We rented Hale Shangrila in April. Everything was just as promised. Solar heated pool was great, as the weather was cooler a few days. Hot tub perfect for evening relaxing. Plenty of room in the home, and everything you could need was there. We thought is was very a perfect location for all the things we wanted to do. It was an easy drive into Hilo, and groceries and restaurants were close enough for us. We had a couple days of heavy rain, but that's what is expected for that side of the island. We watched sea turtles in the ocean and loved sitting on the lanai having cocktails in the evening. I would definitely stay there again if going to the east side of Hawaii. We spent 1 night in Hilo when we arrived, so that we weren't trying to navigate unfamiliar roads in the dark. It was well worth it and enjoyed exploring Hilo before driving to Hale Shangrila.

“Amazing oceanfront”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed in Hale Shangrila for a week, what a beautiful place!
The house is literally on the oceanfront. You can hear the waves breaking on the cliff and see the turtles coming to the shore side. There is no access to the ocean from the house though.
The house is well kept and well equipped. The spa and the pool are great. We had one of our best vacations ever. You will no regret it!
Keep in mind Hilo is a rainy location, while it has a lot offer.
