The Space

We offer budget travel accommodation with a tropical touch. A comfortable hotel full sized mattress with clean linens and a hot shower awaits the traveler here at our 'Sugar Shack.' We have a great wi-fi signal in The Sugar Shack and the home is cleaned in readiness for each new guest. We also set out fresh flowers for our guests to enjoy. You will love being in the same block as some great budget restaurants, two supermarkets and the Hilo Farmer's Market. Travelers who wish to do without a car can easily find what they need in our neighborhood.

NOTE: 13.466% TAX IS TO BE COLLECTED ON ARRIVAL. Payment can be via paypal or cash.

You will love our bright colors and our wild jungle garden and you will be charmed by this old timber home. There is an open and light feeling to the home with old style sash windows, views to the garden and a bright yellow wall that gives the home warmth and a tropical feel. This house has been refurbished with bamboo flooring and a tiled kitchen and bathroom which you will share with one or two other guests from the other room in the house. The kitchen contains the basic utensils, appliances and condiments for simple cooking and for preparing tea and coffee. Our tiled bathroom features a shower, bathtub and toilet on the ground floor level.

Our garden features tropical flowers, trees and statues. It is walled on all sides giving it a very private and secluded feeling like one could be a world away. The appeal for our guests is that while they can enjoy the peace and quiet of our garden setting, they can step onto the streets of Hilo and find great places to eat, shop or browse..

We have enjoyed creating a place for people to rest. We love to help travelers enjoy their visit to Hilo and always encourage them to stay and see a little of this quaint old town. This is a town for people wanting to stay away from 'The Mall.' It's a town with plenty of small stores to browse in and some very affordable restaurants serving delicious food with all kinds of ethnic flavors. Being downtown is very convenient. You can enjoy a vacation without very much time in a car. There is a supermarket right across the road and you will be a block from the farmer's market where you will find great fresh fruit and produce, flowers and snacks. There are galleries, museums and parks to visit that are a short walk away. For the budget or adventure minded traveler there is an irregular but very inexpensive bus that will take you beaches around the island. You can also borrow a bike from us and ride to the beach and the bus stop is one block away. For those with a rental car, there are snorkeling beaches and surf beaches as close as 10 minutes drive away.

House Rules

Hawaiian homes usually are 'no shoe homes' and this applies here. Noise should be at a minimum after 10pm. No 'extra guests' are welcome without checking with us first. Please sort your recycling from your trash and leave the place tidy when you check out to avoid extra hassles or fees. We try to cultivate a relaxed and friendly atmosphere so we aren't too big on rules but those are just a few that pass for 'common sense' around here. Thank you for taking the time to read this. We hope you have a great stay in Hilo.
