We made it to Hilo and in case you’ve never been here before. Let me give you a quick tour. What is up members of the Barrio I hope you enjoyed that little sneak peek Before we dive into this month long series On the Big Island I want to show you around the apartment that Adri and I rented Be sure to stay tuned for this whole thing because at the end I’m going to go through exactly how I found this place. And how much money we’re paying for it. Here we are. Guys i’ve rented over 20 apartments in the last couple of years In different cities around the world. And this one might be my favorite. I’m going to show you why. The first thing that strikes me about this place is the insane amount of local artwork. And this is downtown Hilo. First bathroom. Which is my bathroom. Bed room number 1 Kingsize bed It’s got this whole oceanic theme to it Which I love And yeah the view out the window could be worse. It could definitley be worse No? Yesterday was our first night here and I actually had to get used to the sound of waves coming in Throughout the night And in the morning But I think it’s something i’m going to get used to pretty quickly. And the people that rented us this apartment really thought about just about Everything here. I mean they have Bookshelf. TV And here she is. Aloha Adriana, how are you? Aloha i’m good. And how are you enjoying this little slice of paradise here? It’s perfect and the view.. It’s everything. I haven’t even showed them the view yet. You have to see it guys. Should I show them the view? Definitley. And we don’t even have air conditioning here because we are so close to the water. I’ve made it a habit to spend as much time as possible sitting on this lanai right here And this is our view from the lanai Hilo airport is about 4 miles from here And sometimes we can see planes coming pretty close over Hilo Bay The airport is in that direction right there. Oh and if you’re curious that’s the pool all the way below. I almost forgot to show them the second bed room I think this is one of the only times ever I had a tough decision in whether I wanted to stay in the master bedroom Or the second bed room This is a queen size bed. We didn’t really need a 2 bed room But when you’re doing apartment hunting for a month long rental A lot of times you find that a 2 bedroom place costs just about the same as a 1 bedroom place. And the view is actually better than in the master bedroom in here. Heck even the bathroom has a sick view from this place. Do you think this is the best kitchen we’ve ever had together ? Yes I think so. They have just about every single item you would ever need in a kitchen. Throughout these drawers here without opening the refrigerator. But they had all these spices and different types of utensils in all the drawers. I could think of far worse places to cook from. If you want a nice view while you’re scrambling eggs. So let’s go outside and talk more about how I found this place What i’m paying. And what our plans are for the next month. I hope you can here me over the sounds of the birds and the waves but When I was looking for an apartment in Hilo It was actually quite difficult on airbnb to find Anything that I was interested in. I admit I wanted something pretty close to the water. And that made a lot of the properties very very expensive. But I went to another website called VRBO.com And I found this listing there. Then I contacted the really cool owners off the website. And we negoiated a deal for the month Where we are spending a little over 2,000 dollars For both of us To be here for 31 nights I’m going to put a link to this rental in the description below If you’re interested But I think the point i’m trying to make is that If you can’t find an apartment you’re looking for on airbnb You can always go to VRBO And it never hurts to try to negoiate with the owners of the place. So now let’s talk about plans for the next month. The reason that I picked Hilo was because it’s old school classical Hawaii And I really wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of New York, Honolulu I just wanted to go a bit more off the grid. And Hilo provides the perfect opportunity because it is close to a lot of amazing natural sites We’re going to be doing some adventerous stuff We’re going to be walking around the city Whatever I think is interesting hopefully you guys are going to find interesting. And I think the next month on Here Be Barr Is going to be some of the best content that i’ve ever created. So if you’re new here Definitley hit that subscribe button right now Make sure you’ve got notifications turned on Because i’m going to try to churn out as many videos as I possibly can. Guys hope you enjoyed the tour of this apartment. From here on out we’re going to be exploring the Big Island as much as possible. Thank you so much for watching. Until next time.
