As soon as I pulled in the drive I knew this place was special! The property is surrounded by fruit trees and I was greeted by a friendly kitty. Dickie was a warm and caring host. The hut was completely private and peaceful and the accommodations were just right. I had everything I needed - a comfortable place to stay, full of character and thoughtfully designed. The outdoor shower was blissful too!
My boyfriend and I spent 4 nights at the Bali Hut and fell in love with it! The accomidations is actually bigger than I thought it would be, the bed was super comfortable, and the kitchen appliances were an added bonus!
I'd definitely reccomend bringing a flashlight and bug spray for those that attract mosquitos. The Coqui frogs and geckos were so amazing to be around, we saw a gecko leap from the bathroom ceiling to the wall to nom on a bug, you can't see that at the Marriott!
Dickie was very nice, we got in pretty late and she showed us our accomidations and then we only saw her one other time in the morning. Lots of privacy.
I would reccomend this place to anyone that appreciates nature!
Feels very secluded, was a comfortable place to stay for a night. Open-air outdoor bathroom was kinda fun.
The Bali hut was so nice !! We really enjoy to have the traquility that we fine there ! Dickie was a good host she helped us a bit to find good place to go and she take care of us. Thx for everything (tu es super sympatique et la bali hut est tout simplement adorable !!!)
I stayed 6 nights in the tree hut on a recent solo trip to the big island. The tree hut was absolutely amazing; exactly as described by Dickie. As an avid camper and backpacker, I found the amenities to be adequate. If you're a person that likes air conditioning and lots of other "extras" found in more traditional lodging, this might not be the space for you. But I found the bed comfortable, the outdoor hot shower delightful, and the electricity and wi-fi added bonuses. With the ceiling fan, I was more than comfortable even without AC. Many reviewers have commented about how loud the coqui frogs are. They are quite loud, but I had no problem sleeping without earplugs. If you're used to sleeping outside on camping trips, you should be fine! I found their song to be lovely and the rhythm put me to sleep every night. There were some bugs, but there was a nice candle in the hut that seemed to do a good job of keeping them away--I didn't use spray the whole time I was there! Dickie is a great host with just the right amount of contact. We chatted briefly when I arrived; I had a question while I was there and she responded very quickly. This is an absolutely magical place and was a great base from which I had adventures all over the big island. Mahalo Dickie for sharing this amazing place!
Wir wurden herzlich empfangen von Dickie empfangen und hatten die Hütte komplett für uns. Es war alles wie beschrieben, eine nette kleine Hütte mitten im Dschungel.
Dickie empfing uns sofort bei der Ankunft und war sehr fürsorglich. Die Hütte ist klein, aber gemütlich; bei dem außen liegenden Badezimmer waren zunächst skeptisch, doch dann wirklich begeistert. Die Erfahrung so mitten in der Natur zu übernachten war wunderbar.
Wir können Dickie als liebe Vermieterin sehr empfehlen.
Extremely unique and memorable experience! Living among the frogs and geckos was the coolest. I went to take a shower and all of a sudden I was part of a National Geographic special on geckos and frogs. There's 2 geckos that live in the shower/outdoor bathroom area. Vibrant green with a red paw print looking pattern on their back. Frogs everywhere. If you don't mind a small space and limited amenities, it's definitely worth staying a night or 2 for the experience. I will say that Mosquitos find their way in so make sure you bring repellant.
As far as locatio goes, you're striking distance to volcano park, lava tubes, waterfalls, and a naturally hot ocean pool with tropical fish (including puffers!) to look at. Bring a snorkel and rent a car. The host, Dickie, was super nice. The treehouse was very private so no issues at all as far as that goes.
The treehouse was so cozy and simple! Dickie was the best, giving us great recommendations for local swim spots. Even has a hot shower, stove and coffee! Would absolutely recommend
We really enjoyed our stay at the Bali Hut Treehouse! We stayed at a number of places on the big island and this was by far our favourite. The place is unique, has plenty of privacy and all the amenities you'd need (loved the outdoor bathroom), while the rainforest atmosphere is really a sound you'll take back home with you. All that and Dickie was a very friendly, thoughtful, and accommodating host.
We found Pahoa to be a very entertaining location - close enough to Hilo to get into town regularly, and closest place to a lot of the East sides best swimming areas. If you're there on a Wednesday, go check out Uncle Roberts farmers market - fantastic! Cheers for the tip off and stay Dickie!
