We are located between Hilo and Pahoa, about 20 minutes south of Hilo, and about 15 minutes from the historic town of Pahoa. Our newly paved road provides easy access to activities nearby.
Pahoa is a charming town of yester-year. There are good restaurants, shopping, a museum, interesting farmers markets, and many friendly people. A little further past Pahoa, there is great snorkeling, warm ponds to soak in, surf breaks, great hikes and bike rides, and lots of great photo ops along the Kalapana Coast.
In Hilo, you can be sunning at the beach while looking at a snow capped volcano (depending on the time of year), swim at a black sand beach and catch a glimpse of green sea turtles, dolphins and whales, snorkel at a shoreline reef and see our state fish, the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a. Hilo is also home to the world famous Hilo Farmers Market (which happens on Wednesdays and Saturdays) and in April, the internationally acclaimed Merry Monarch Festival, the world's biggest hula competition. Hilo offers some wonderful restaurants and shopping, museums, bars, traditional Japanese gardens, with lots of local arts & crafts in the Bayfront area.
We are about an hour away from Volcano National Park, one of the largest national parks in the country. There you can hike, bike ride, picnic, bird watch, view amazing art at Volcano Art Center, tour Jagger Museum, or stop by the Visitor’s Center to get the latest from the park rangers. After dark, you can see the molten lava glow in Halemaumau Crater. If you prefer to explore the wilds of our Volcano Goddess, Pele and possibly catch of glimpse of her magical molten lava, that is possible too, depending on the flow activity during your visit. This is really an outdoor paradise, with lots of fun activities to do in a most beautiful setting.
