A charming first stay in a yurt - but light sleepers bring earplugs!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time staying in a yurt, so we weren't sure what to expect, but we had a wonderful first experience at the peaceful yurt. While from the outside it seems simple enough, the inside looks like a little chalet! It's very spacious and the living area is very charming and welcoming. We could tell that the owners take great care of making sure that we have everything we need to be comfortable: The kitchenette was well furnished, there are plenty of towels and toiletries for everyone, there were even extra sheets and pillows for chillier nights. It's at a good location as well: a short drive from Hilo, less than an hour from Volcano National Park, and close to the ocean with beautiful scenic drives on the east coast of the island.

Our stay at the yurt was wonderful, however if you're a light sleeper I'd recommend bringing earplugs. The coqui frogs will croak throughout the night, which isn't so bad, until the wild roosters join the chorus at 2am and the neighborhood dogs will occasionally jump in as well!

Animal orchestra aside, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend!

Awesome time at the yurt, very peaceful and relaxing. I didn't personally mind the bathroom rules, but I do think potential renters should be made aware before renting.

Close enough to hear the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the yurt was peaceful and relaxing. The furnishings were very comfortable. Jayne the property manager was responsive and helped me greatly when she delivered my forgotten baggage to the airport,above and beyond the call of duty! The only suggestion that we have is a good first aid kit and tongs and brush for the grill...otherwise we loved it!
