Getting Around

Hilo has a bus system and the terminal is about a mile from rental. You can walk easily to the downtown area where there are also lots of restaurants, farmer's market and many shops. Centrally located, you will be able to find you way around easily. I have large maps of Hilo and the rest of the Island posted in covered garage. This is the" Big Island", so a rental car is recommended.

Other Things to Note

Hilo is a nice, friendly town. We have several public beaches that guests will enjoy. Lots of places to visit and, of course, the volcano and whale watching.
