From the lanai (deck) you have a partial view of the ocean waves, the swimming pool, and the tropical garden. There is a bistro table for afternoon drinks or an intimate meal in the tropical breeze while the ocean waves roll. Comfortable deck chairs for lazy lounging--hey, it's your vacation!

Each bedroom is completely furnished with comfy pillow-top beds, ceiling fans and dressers. The Master has a second TV with full cable options.

The living room has plenty of cushy seating for conversing or just chillin'.
This expertly-appointed, quiet condo is the perfect base for exploring Hilo and the Big Island.

Snorkle and swim in calm, shallow water--perfect for the keiki (kids). Paddle board while you watch tropical fish swimming below you in the crystal clear. Or surf the wild waves! Whatevah, brudah!

You'll be just four miles from downtown Hilo, where you'll find the famous Hilo Farmer's Market, restaurants for every taste, art galleries, shopping, entertainment, and so much more!

Within easy driving distance you'll tour tropical scenic routes and botanical gardens, view awesome waterfalls, see lava flows, visit the fascinating Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the amazing Panaewa Rainforest Zoo (FREE!) and much more!

Where you’ll be

Hilo, Hawaii, United States

Most Hawaiian neighborhoods are like none other. Here it is a delightful mix of Hawaiian Natives, permanent residents, and travelers like you! Easy to talk with, most people are eager to "talk story" and spend a little time together. Or leave you to yourself. Aloha and living pono (properly) are fundamental to this community.
