Karl & Susan Gutknecht of Madison, WI have already been to the Big Island 5 times in 2009. They especially enjoyed their early December trip for a couple of reasons:
One, the week they were in Hilo the temperatures dipped below zero back in Madison (bbrrrrr!), and
Two: Karl had the best time swimming in the lagoon area at Carlsmith Park, just steps from the beautiful 5th floor, 2-bedroom oceanfront condo he was renting at Mauna Loa Shores -- unit 508. Here is a photo of him making two new friends:
The park is a popular place to get into the water in protected lagoons and experience the ocean in Hawaii in a different way from the beaches. It is a very picturesque setting and we never get tired of promoting the beauty this place has to offer guests who choose to stay at Mauna Loa Shores . Here's the view of the park that Karl and Susan enjoyed from the screened lanai of unit 508:
Mauna Loa Shores 508 just one of the Hilo vacation rental properties Hawaii Holiday represents. If you have plans to vacation in the Hilo area, be sure to check out the Big Island Vacation Rentals website for availability and rates!
