“We're generally not big on superlatives, but cannot write an honest review of Kaeo's and Karl's Eco Hale without employing a few. Picture yourself on the lanai in a romantic hut, in the heart of a garden-like rain forest, enjoying a breakfast of various fresh fruit (some of which you can pick within a few feet), homemade cranberry-walnut bread, freshly ground locally grown coffee, listening to the tropical birds (and, of course, the Coqui) with dappled sunshine lighting up the scene. It's difficult if not impossible to come up with a better start to a day. Now envision yourself on the same lanai as evening approaches, sipping wine and snacking on (or dining, we chose to bring dinner "home" most nights to have more time to soak up the peace), then filling the furo with warm water and climbing in for a soul soothing soak. From the warmest of welcomes by Kaeo, to the delicious pupu she provided our first evening, to her little touches in decorating both amazing and authentic, it is an extraordinary experience in a perfect location to explore the island. Kaeo is one of the sweetest and most thoughtful souls we have had the privilege to meet. We've already agreed that we'll return for a third visit with her and Eco Hale.”
Our Tiny Tropical Treehouse is a very special space full of creativity and beauty. Custom built by an artist, this eco-house is flooded with natural sunlight, rich with wood accents, and inextricably connected to nature. It is ideal for couples and individuals looking for a private retreat nestled away in the jungle. Adventurers, relaxers, writers, and artists will enjoy staying here, a mere 18 mi from all Volcano National Park has to offer and 20 mi from downtown Hilo.
“My boyfriend and I were blessed to find Melissa and Catherine’s amazing treehouse on Airbnb for our two week quarantine and we loved every minute of our full forest immersion. At sunset we would sit on the deck and slide down the zip line, the kitchen was fully equipped to create any meal you can think of and the outdoor shower was surrounded by beautiful orchids and lush greenery, we would definitely recommend this spot for a few days to feel the real Hawaii vibes.”
Our Retreat is a labor of our love and was built as such. A getaway to relax, hike the nearby beaches, forests, and volcanoes and to simply enjoy life. Our place is a peaceful spot completely off the grid in nature. It is 8 miles to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. You’ll love our place because of the location, the ambiance, and the outdoor space. Our goal was to bring the outdoors in and the indoors outside. Our place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
“This treehouse is the perfect getaway and such a cool place! Definitely the place to stay if you’re looking for a place that’s quiet, serene, and unique (being tucked away in the rainforest...very neat!). Brittany and Michael were great hosts that responded quickly and provided lots of helpful information prior to checking in. They have a book with recommendations and places to see or try that we found to be very helpful as we navigated the Big Island. We spent a lot of time out and about during the day and coming back here in the evening was so relaxing and peaceful. Highly recommend this place to anyone spending time on the island!”
