  • 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."

  • Beyond Expectation for the price.

    "Our family 2A+2C stayed in this cosy bungalow for 4 nights. The accomodation was very clean and well presented.The bathroom and kitchen were both modern with all amenities provided. Check-in was easy and our security deposit was promptly returned. It is a short drive north of Hilo in a peaceful neighbourhood. We had an easy drive to the Volcanoes National Park as well as Mauna Kea from here. We would highly recommend this accomodation."

  • The PERFECT home away from home!

    "This house was perfect for my team. We LOVED everything about the house and totally enjoyed our stay here...(SORRY FOR THE LATE POST) But we are starting to plan our stay in Hilo again for next year's Haili Volleyball Tournament and we are certainly considering staying here again! Everything was as advertised on the page and in pictures. We had the best time staying home and cooking and just bonding with one another. It was more than comfortable for the 8 of us! AWESOME PLACE...I would recommend it to anyone looking for a cozy home away from home centrally located in Hilo! Mahalo Linda and Edna!"

  • great place !!!!!!

    "Great place to stay. The house was very clean. Magnificiant sunrise every morning. We have used the pool every day. The pool chairs could be changed. The lime tree was great. Open the Windows and you will have a nice breeze. Not like others, we have enjoyed the frog "music" in the evening. The only downside was the dogs BARKING. If you could do something about this, I would give you 6 stars!!! Randall is a great guy. He came to meet us when we arrived. This is realy a place to stay. What you get is better than what you see on the web site. Thank you and we recommend this place."

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.
