  • Beautiful private home

    "Everything was exactly as pictured and expected, including the charming and authentic ofuro bath. The kitchen is nicely appointed. There are few "left-over" spices and such from previous guests, which is slightly unusual, so be sure to stock up on your fave items on the way in. I suggest going to the mega KTA store, which is pretty much across from the airport. The house is located about 15 minutes from Hilo town, in a nice residential neighborhood standing on a hill, far enough from neighbors to feel secluded and with an exceptional view. We didn't lack for anything, and the sounds of the many birds, the evening's coqui symphony, and the many geckos kept us thoroughly entertained. Cable channels are sparse, but there is a stack of movies and DVD player. Upstairs bedrooms (Queen beds) are comfy and airy with ceiling fans to cut the heat, the downstairs bedroom has two twins for the kids. Not sure what I'd do if I had small children, as sleeping them downstairs wouldn't be prudent, but it's a nice private hideaway for older kids. Furnishings were comfortable and plentiful. We do wish there had been an actual sofa to lounge on, which would have made visiting with guests more comfortable, but overall we were just fine. The pool is simply wonderful! Not overly chlorinated, the water is the perfect temperature to swim day or night (though it can feel a tad chilly in the evening and when it rains). Just big enough to swim "sprints", I was able to do my usual lap swimming, so so so happy! Overall this home is such a relaxing, beautiful, comfortable place to be we actually spent a lot of time hanging out instead of doing the mad dashes to everywhere else. Things not to miss: Poi balls on Saturdays on the road in from Hilo. 4-mile beach and Richardson's beach on Kamehameha St. where I had an intimate meeting with an enormous honu (sea turtle). The Saturday and Wednesday mega Farmer's Market in Hilo. Buy some of Wes's Menehune Jams -- they are amazing!!! The drive through Puna -- go down to the volcanic tide pools (bring your water slippahs or you will cut your feet up and don't forget snorkel gear!) Of the many visits to the islands, this may be the best. I haven't even left the island yet, and I'm already planning my next trip -- and I will be staying here!"

  • 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."

  • Beautiful view and wonderful, comfortable home

    "Mahalo! We enjoyed staying in your lovely home in July and wish we could have stayed longer. We really appreciate all that the owner did to make our first trip to Hawaii a positive one. Steve was extremely helpful and answered all communication immediately. Our deposit was refunded before we even made it home. This home was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed watching the sunrise each morning while having our morning coffee on the deck. It was perfect for our two families and was conveniently located to Richardson Beach, the waterfalls, Volcanoes National Park and Hilo airport. The Big Island has so much to see, and we will never forget our adventures here."

  • 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."

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.
