  • Hilo cottage

    "Beautiful rental with lots of character. Very well maintained. Basic odds and ends are in the kitchen (salt, pepper, oil, other various leftovers), so that is really handy. Funky atmosphere, if you are looking for a polished resort stay this is not it. Hosts are fantastic. Amazingly quiet for being in the middle of Hilo, walk to everything - legendary farmers market on Wednesday one short block away. Restaurant across the street has killer happy hour ($2 beer, $2 taco or nacho) and also does great dinner."

  • Awesome Stay !

    "I had an extremely pleasant stay. Cindy and her family were very responsive. I had the good fortune to be there during the rare event of a Hurricane (Iselle) --- I felt very safe in the house. I can't say enough wonderful about the home. It had lovely, peaceful views. I loved the wrap around lanai - had breakfast every morning while looking out to the Ocean and the neighboring mountain side views. I truly hope to be able to visit The Big Island again and would definitely stay in this home again. There was nothing that disappointed me. :) :-)"

  • Big Island...Hilo

    "This was our third time to stay in this condo, and we WILL be back. Condo is well furnished, very well equipped, and the views are spectacular! We stayed for two weeks and were able to visit all the local tourist places and still have time to enjoy a nightly mai tai on the lanai. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook a full meal, if you are so inclined, but there are a number of good restaurants, for eat in or take out. And the Hilo Farmers' Market has the best local produce you could ask for..."

Hilo Travel Tips

Hilo Lodging for Big Island Relaxation

On the Island of Hawaii, you will find Big Island vacation rentals to suit you in the Hilo District. The quaint, historic city, dating back to 1100 AD, sits on the curve of Hilo Bay. It is a lush green area with an array of historic sites contained within the city. Once famous for sugar cane production, the falling market and two horrific tsunamis mean the area around your Hilo lodging choice is now a thriving and relaxed tourist location. Hilo condos are the best choices for independent travelers seeking to create unique vacation experiences.

Hilo Lodging for Volcanic Beauty All around You

The reason for Hawaii’s unique beauty is its volcanic make-up. Big Island vacation rentals are ideally situated to explore some of these natural wonders. One of the areas that best graphically demonstrates this is the Nanawale Forest Reserve where, centuries ago, a flow of lava hit a path of wet O’hia trees. The lava then cooled, leaving vertical, hollow tubes of lava where the trees once stood. Now from Hilo condos, hikers can walk the park to see these natural wonders. Also at the Reserve is Aimakapa Fish Pond, home to many rare birds, a habitat for local stilt and coot and a breeding ground for pied-billed grebe. Hilo lodging is an ideal location for bird-watching and taking in the sights of this area.

Hilo Condos for Relaxation and Rainforest Beauty

The uniqueness of Hawaii does not stop with the volcanic wonders on the doorstep of Big Island vacation rentals. Also exclusive to the Island is the USA’s only tropical Rainforest Zoo. The Pana’ewa Rainforest Zoo, close to Hilo condos, is home to over 60 animals including a rare white Bengal tiger. Getting back to nature is easy in your Hilo lodging choice.

Big Island Vacation Rentals Are in Beautiful Locations

Nature-lovers will also enjoy a visit to Nani Mau Gardens, close to most Hilo lodging choices. The garden boasts a collection of specimens of every flowering plant native to the Islands. It is also home to one of the world’s finest collections of orchids. These Big Island vacation rentals are ideal to visit Nani Mau, meaning “forever beautiful,” where you can appreciate how plants are a vital part of Hawaiian culture. One more visit for renters of Hilo condos will no doubt be the Imiloa Astronomy Center with its exhibits and shows about the culture, history and astronomy of this beautiful place.
