  • 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."

  • Beautiful Getaway North of Hilo

    "In all respects, this is a very fine and affordable rental in the quiet countryside north of Hilo. The wrap-around porch allows a cool, quiet place to relax in view of the ocean and surrounding hills at any time. There are neighbors around, just enough to add security, but not enough to be crowded. The home is beautiful and really provides everything a family needs for a great vacation stay on the big island."

  • Great place to stay in Hilo!

    "We stayed here for a week and it was great! It is right on the shoreline next to a beach park. We were able to see a turtle (known as Radar to the locals) as soon as we got there! The condo is very clean with everything as advertised. It included cooking supplies and other things like bug spray, sunscreen, and supplies in the closet which saved us from having to buy them when we flew in. Donna was also very helpful and accommodating. Definitely would recommend and would stay here again on future visits!"

  • AMAZING!!!!!

    "We had such an amazing time. Soooooo relaxing. I thanked the property owner for calling in the whales to play right in front of the house!!!! Three sets! And swimming next to sea turtles at the beach was awesome! It was even possible to get my boys away from their video games, given the fun to be had here. :). We wish we had another week! We will be back."

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.
