  • Hurrican Proof

    "this is the second time we are staying at Lopakas Lodge, and it gets better every time. The stay was wonderful, and Bev, the host is even better. She has maintained the lodge so that it feels like a new place every time have rented. This recent stay had us worried about the structural integrity of the lodge during Hurricane Iselle. The lodge withstood the storm, and most importantly our 5 y.o. son slept right through the storm. The best part is Bev treated us like family and offered her house and provide us guidance on what steps we should take in case of a situation caused by the storm. e are very thankful that we were at the lodge during this event. We will definitely be back. Mahalo Bev!"

  • Highlight of our Big Island adventure!

    "The 4 nights at this condo were the best of our 8-night stay on the Big Island. We loved being close to Hilo but far enough outside of oldtown to hear frogs at night & roosters in the morning - like music! Few steps away to Carlsmith Park & swimming with turtles seems now like a dream! Recommend breakfast at Coconut Grill - also HI Botanical Gardens just north of Hilo - standing in volcanic steam vents in Volcano Natl Park - all great adventures! Can't wait to go back!! No AC at condo so be sure to open bedroom windows & front door to catch trade winds, although unusually humid when we were there. Highly recommended!!!"

  • Gorgeous view!

    "This is a very comfortable house. Kitchen was clean and well equipped. View is to die for, especially in whale season. The bedrooms and baths are clean and well appointed. Two master suites, plus two other bedrooms. One of the masters is on the ground floor. Quite a few gnats had died in the window sills (a common Hilo issue), but no other bugs were seen. The location is very convenient to Hilo town. The area is quiet and the house feels private even though it's in a neighborhood. I highly recommend this location."

Akaka Falls Travel Tips

Akaka Falls Vacation Homes Are Perfect for the Nature Lover

Those who travel to the tropical paradise that is Hawaii are expecting to see lush greenery and gorgeous tropical flowers in all sizes and colors of the rainbow. Even though the islands are full of the kind of natural beauty of which most people only dream of, the area of Akaka Falls manages to both surprise and awe every visitor. Akaka Falls lodging is considered some of the best in the state thanks to the rich volcanic soils in the area. The nutrient rich land allows for verdant growth and stunning landscapes and is thus some of the sought after vacation real estate in the world.

Hike near the Falls Themselves

Akaka Falls vacation homes are close the Akaka Falls State Park. Akaka means "a rent, split, chink, separation; to crack, split, or scale" — an apt description when one sees the split in the land where the waterfalls in the area flow through. Hiking through the park allows visitors to see these falls up close; their majesty is truly inspiring and the beauty is undoubtedly stunning. Akaka Falls lodging puts the traveler close to the natural beauty, and they make the vacation one that will be memorable.

Visiting the State Park

Those who stay in Big Island vacation rentals will be impressed with the easy access they are afforded to the state park. The park is less than four miles inland from Honomu; you can gain access with just a quick drive and an absolutely stunning walk from the beach. Burn off the tropical drinks and take a lot of pictures as you work toward making your Hawaiian vacation one that make all your friends back home burn with jealousy. A vacation on Akaka Falls vacation homes will truly be one to remember!
