  • 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!!!"

  • Great place to get away.

    "This is a very pleasant place to spend time. The waves crashing on the rocks are soothing and lull you to sleep. The frogs and other wild life are loud at night but you get used to it. The high speed internet was a pleasant surprise. The house has everything you need except air conditioning. There are a lot of places in Hawaii that don't have AC, we got used to it after a couple days. There is usually a light to moderate breeze that is very nice. We found the heart in the lava flow in the back yard as well as the horse's head. I challenge you to find it during your stay. I would recommend this house for anyone that wants to live like a local. We loved it."

  • A Hidden GEM on the Big Island

    "Not to start any debate but I strongly disagree with the latest comment that was made. If you read the information about the rental you would be very happy with the accommodations, price and location. For $90 this is a steal and truly a hidden gem on the Big Island. Hotels are 3x that price and have nothing close to the atmosphere, location, and experience. If you want to avoid a little cob-web, ditch the heat, and be in AC..... this is NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU! However, if you love the fresh air, trade winds and morning showers with sunny afternoons this is it! The unit is clean, nice in size and has everything you need to have a relaxing getaway. The owners are very friendly and helpful in any way they can. We felt like part of the family here as they shared the ALOHA Spirit during our stay! We would come again without a doubt!! Thanks for the great place!"

  • Peaceful, quiet getaway in a beautiful location!

    "We stayed at the Malia Bree for an extended family vacation and it was the perfect place for a quiet getaway. Great central location to explore Volcanoes, Kohala and Hilo. The house is well equipped and was always a great place to come back to in the evenings after a day spent exploring the island. Thank you, Lyndy for your hospitality and offering us this great escape!!"

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.
