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 (Hidden by Airbnb) 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.

Beautiful property, and the common areas were great - lots of amenities. Bathroom was very clean. Location was very central to everything in Hilo. The bedroom has more of a slatted screen than a real door - we were hoping for a little more privacy. Also, the bed was only a full-s…

Great location in the center of town. You will still fall asleep to the sounds of birds and frogs. The bed is a little small for 2 adults but can be done. Kitchen and bathroom is shared with only one other room. Nice to have a fridge to store some things and a kettle to make tea.
