The property features a full kitchen and a LCD High Definition TV. The home is situated on over an acre of lush tropical gardens with numerous fruit trees and indigenous plants found only in Hawaii. It’s located approximately three miles from downtown Hilo. It's more than a beautiful place to stay, it’s a lifestyle. You'll experience charming “Old Hawaii” where life is slow and easy. Our property allow you to relax in style or pursue a variety of adventures right outside. Amenities include a secluded beautiful outdoor garden. The landscaped grounds and naturalistic setting capture the tranquility and beauty of the islands where travelers can relax and experience the true Hawaii where the locals live.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Big Island of Hawaii. The Tropical Retreat Guest House provides a private vacation retreat with all the comforts of home for visitors and travelers to the Big Island of Hawaii seeking an alternative to the 'resort' atmosphere, where you won’t feel like a tourist. The kitchen is fully-equipped. Your hosts reside in a property nearby and will personally greet you and handle your personalized access when you arrive. Your host will answer questions you may have, assist you with any special needs and help you plan your stay... sharing tips on where to visit, how to get there, where to lunch and favorite local dining spots.

The property is within walking distance to a very picturesque area of East Hawaii surrounded by streams, waterfalls and off a quiet street perfect for walking or jogging. A private serene opens up to views of the garden below for ultimate relaxation. Our Retreat is a perfect Hawaiian getaway for couples and families celebrating their special occasion, and is centrally located making it an ideal home base while exploring exotic points of interest on the island.

Hilo is famous for its warm aloha spirit, relaxed lifestyle, unique shops, art galleries and restaurants with local regional cuisine. Local attractions include Lyman Museum, East Hawaii Cultural Center, historic Palace Theatre, Pacific Tsunami Museum, Imiloa Astronomy Center, UH Hilo Performing Arts Center and Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens. Hilo Farmer's Market is a favorite for fresh, local produce. The Merrie Monarch Festival, Hilo's premier hula competition and cultural event, is held annually in April. East Hawaii's black sand beaches and freshwater pools are some of the best for snorkeling, diving, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming with turtles and tropical fish, or watching the whales off shore. Take a helicopter volcano tour or short scenic drive to active Kilauea volcano to view a lava flow, ride horses in Waipio Valley or tour the summit and view the night skies of Mauna Kea.

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Extremely clean; very large living area, bedrooms and kitchen. Beautiful landscaped backyard with screened in sitting area in a tropical garden. Convenient to downtown Hilo and easy drive to tourist areas on the rest of the Big Island. Overall, it was a very nice place that I would recommend.

Spacious, clean, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this spacious home. We used this as a base to explore one side of the Big Island. The home was about a fifteen minute drive from the airport. I would recommend that if you rent this property that you have a good GPS as the streets in Hilo can be confusing to a newcomer. No problems, everything with the rental went very smoothly.
