  • May retreat

    "Rented house for 6 nights. Very nice & website was accurate as portrayed. Spectatcular site on ocean; eating all meals on patio enjoying the view & sounds of birds. Would have benefitted us with instructions of how to operate TV in living room and channel guide. Also no a/c which wasn't needed except for mid afternoon hours, bedrooms were hot for siestas. Kitchen was well appointed to cook for our foursome however tips would be to sharpen knives, fix icemaker & during last 2 days the dishwasher wouldn't work. Overall our stay was enjoyable. Driving the 4 miles off main road took awhile due to 35 mph. Hilo was 1/2 hr but with construction seemed like much longer. Once on the property we really loved it! Great property to enjoy with friends. 2nd bedroom had no tv. Would recommend!"

  • 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."

  • A nice place to escape

    "We booked 4 nights, but due to flight issues we missed 2 nights. We came to the house with a very bad mood. But when we get into the house everything gets better. The house is clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, we have everything we need. The kids love the pool and jacuzzi. The place is quiet, and good for reading. We had tea with ocean view in the living room at 2nd floor. Every people enjoy the staying in the house."

  • THE OCEAN VIEW CANNOT BE DESCRIBED

    "My wife and I stayed at Sea Watch in June of 2014. This wonderful house is literally right on the ocean. We were about 40 feet from the water setting 30 feet about the pounding surf and could feel the salt spray at times. The house was very spacious and had every amenity you would ever need. Sam was right next door to answer any questions and concerns I we had any. The great thing about renting a place like this instead of staying in a hotel room is the many extras you have in the form of maps and books about the island and all of its many treasures. I would recommend this as a perfect place to get away and relax and let the ocean lull you to sleep."

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.
