  • 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."

  • Restful retreat.

    "I stayed a week at Jack & Tonya's wonderful home. It was quiet, peaceful & spotless. My husband & I are familiar with the area as we vacation in Puna 1-2 times a year since 1996. So sometimes we want to spend a whole day not even leaving the rental and just relaxing and forgetting about our hectic city life. This was a great spot to get away from it all. Somedays we would hike in Volcano, out to Shipman Beach or just around Puna and somedays we just stayed at the house relaxing by the pool and soaking up warm Puna sunshine. Every morning started with a walk to the cliffs to watch the morning waves and every evening ended with a walk to the cliffs to have a "Puna" sunset. Tonya was very attentive and helpful. We really enjoyed talking with Tui (what a brilliant, insightful and all around cool kid!). And we totally fell in love with Bebe the dog. If you are looking for a home base to explore the East side or just a place to kick back and chill for a week, this is the spot."

  • Home away from home

    "This rental is closer to Puna then Hilo but that wasn't a problem as we had a car. The rental was in great condition, exactly as the pictures show. I kept in close contact with Trish (owner) as we were arriving shortly after two hurricanes and she was always prompt to answer my emails and any questions I had. My family and I really appreciated having the cooler, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, and many other supplies that made this trip so enjoyable. Without a doubt, I would stay here again on my next visit. I strongly recommend this property to anyone looking for a home away from home while at the Big Island. We went around the whole island and favorite highlights are: national volcano (specially at night time), farmer markets, waterfalls, and beaches (black sand and green sand beaches). Thank you Trish and Doug for sharing your lovely home with us."

  • Tropical Paradise....

    "To have the ability to prepare your own meals with the local produce, to enjoy the morning sunrise with a cup of local coffee, to listen to the frogs and waves at night as a lullaby, worth so much more then the nightly price. Very clean, well supplied, decent decor, nice shower, and lots of room. Our family, which includes a 17 year old, was very delighted to have Reeds as our home base for the several nights we stayed. Seeing as we paid over $400 the night before to stay up at the Volcano, our expectations were set low due to the price. Yes, the building is older and its a tad kitche, the locals could scare some not from a larger city...but it was exactly what the doctor ordered. We are all very busy and slowing down to enjoy life is not normal protocol for us however our stay here at Reeds in Hilo made you want to...and so you do."

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.
