Red cinder leads you through the dense jungle to your secluded bamboo treehouse. Nestled on top of stilts 15' up in the canopy of the local flora, ascend to your retreat via the trapdoor or begin your adventure in Volcano National Park 10 miles away.
Upon arrival, let the red cinder path be your yellow brick road as you are lead through the jungle to your personal paradise. At ground level you will encounter a hanging bed, suspended beneath the floor of your new living quarters. Stop and relax or continue up the staircase to the trapdoor. It is through this trapdoor that you are allowed access to the lanai amongst the canopy of trees. A beautiful wrap around lanai allows for a 360 degree view of the lush jungle, while two sliding glass doors grant access to the bedroom. Upon entering, you will notice that the generous windows and doors allow for natural sunlight to flood into the house, complementing the bamboo fixtures and vintage 1970s wallpaper that backs the bed. The white bed linens reflect the light giving a dreamy, cloud-like aura to the space. There is counter stocked with a local coffee and snacks nestled into a corner of the house and overlooked by the handcrafted porthole windows. Bamboo backed cubby holes and hangers furnish the wall behind you and create an elegant, minimalist closet space for you to store your personal items for the duration of your stay. Just past the closet is a sliding door that accesses one of the most fun areas of the house: the bathroom. The bathroom jalousie windows stretch from the floor to the ceiling and the horizontal glass plates open up, creating an indoor-outdoor effect. Naturally caught rainwater cascades from the large shower head above before disappearing into the floor boards below. You'll notice that the natural theme spills over into the bathroom with sustainable cork board backing the shower and air plants intermittently growing throughout. The toilet and hand-made rock sink in the corner make use of grey water eco-principles by allowing you to wash your hands with fresh water before it goes on to fill the bowl. One of the most fun aspects of this property is that it allows you the opportunity to experience true off-grid living without sacrificing any of the comforts of normal life. Natural lighting, solar power and rain water catchment are the three principles that have been integrated into this tree top design, making it almost like a living organism itself. The beauty of this high flying haven is in the details. I spent the better part of three months personally constructing the building as well as the accessories inside. My goal was to create a customized and secluded space for your occasion. The chandelier, hanging lights, port-hole windows, rock sink and platform bed were all DIY projects that I specifically created to enhance your experience. The bamboo pillars that 'support' the lanai and the moss carpet under the hanging bed were harvested from local areas on the Big Island. IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS BEFORE MAKING A RESERVATION Don't worry, the capital letters are just to emphasize importance. I'm not mad at you. But please read this entire section before making a reservation. As lush and inviting as the Dreamy Tropical Treehouse is, there are inevitable 'challenges' that come with staying in an off-grid treehouse in the Hawaiian jungle. My goal is to give you an experience that combines adventure and luxury so I want to make sure that you are aware of the following things: 1. The treehouse is about 15-feet off the ground and is only accessible by the 'ladder-stairs'. 'Ladder-stairs' is just another way of saying 'very steep' stairs. There is a hand railing and none of my visitors have ever had a problem going up and down. There is a pulley system for hoisting up your bags. Only those who believe they are physically capable should book a stay. Just remember to go up and down the stairs facing them... like a ladder! 2. The running water comes from the rain falling on the roof and is not treated; therefore, the water is not potable. I will provide several bottles of drinking water. 3. The electricity you use is generated by sunlight and is stored in a battery. Once the battery runs out of power it has to recharge. This shouldn’t happen but just be mindful not to leave lights or power hungry items running for extended periods of time (No hairdryers). The windows allow for plenty of light during the day. 4. This is the rainy side of the Big Island so expect some showers! Realize that the pitter-patter on the roof is the rain's first stop on its journey to the water tanks and then to your shower. Also notice how warm it is. Don't think of rain as a trip ruiner but instead an asset to be enjoyed! 5. There are bugs but this isn't the Amazon. For such a tropical climate you will be surprised at how few bugs there are. The main things you will see are moths, fruit flies (due to fruit falling off of the trees) and mosquitoes. Bug repellent is provided but it never hurts to bring your own. They really don't get that bad but their presence increases after a hard rain and during the twilight hours. Luckily, the hanging bed has mosquito netting that drapes down to encompass it. 6. Noises. Living off-grid in the jungle also brings about its own set of noises. The water pump and solar inverter will make soft noises throughout the day as they are used. The falling fruit from the vivie trees can also be alarming if you don't know what it is, and at night you are going to be serenaded by the sweet chirping of coqui frogs. Rustling branches, grunts and squeals typically means that the cute family of wild pigs is nearby. They are harmless and will runoff as soon as they sense your presence. Quietly grab the binoculars and, if you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of them! All of these aspects are what makes this place so unique and, with the right mindset, they’ll only enhance your overall experience. Guests have free range to fully utilize every aspect of the house. The hanging bed, wrap-around porch, indoor-outdoor shower and closet are at your full disposal. I have recently installed a kitchenette that has a sink, cooler for storing food/drinks, and a coffee maker (also capable of heating up water). Any and all goodies stocked in the house are there for your enjoyment. Here is a more comprehensive list of amenities and features that will be available to you: •Indoor/Outdoor Shower •Toilet with Overlaid Sink •Organic Shampoo/Conditioner •Towels •Ample Parking •Tiki Torch ‘Flashlights’ •Hanging Bed •Table and Chairs for Lanai •Binoculars •Several Books •Outlets (3-prong and USB) •Kitchen Sink •Coffee Maker •Clean Linens •Gramophone Music Player for iPhones •Cooler for Food/Drink •Card Game Guest interaction can be tailored to your needs. My goal is to make sure your stay is unforgettable so you can always contact me via phone or email. Because I do not live on the island year round, a local neighbor can assist you if you have any problems that need tending to. Upon your arrival I can arrange to have someone greet you and show you the property or simply stow away the key for your convenience. The choice, of course, is yours. Even though I am not on site, I can always be reached. Feel free to call/text/email me at any time during your stay should the unlikely event that a problem arises. I will immediately contact the proper authority to have the problem remedied. The treehouse is located at the end of a neighborhood street making it very private. It is set about 50 yards off the street behind a windy, jungle path further adding to your privacy. There are only about five full time neighbors scattered throughout the neighborhood so don't expect to see a lot of people. The treehouse is about 20 miles from Hilo, 23 miles from Pahoa, 12 miles from Keaau and 8 miles from Volcano. Volcano is the closest place for laundry, good restaurants and groceries, though you will pay a little more for the groceries than in Hilo or Keaau. I recommend you stop on your way in from Hilo. When you book I will include a guidebook that has the locations, hours and prices of local restaurants and grocery stores. There is quick access to highway 11 and it is 10 miles from Volcanoes National Park. Numerous opportunities for sightseeing and adventures are within a 40 minute drive of this treehouse paradise and they will be included in my guest guidebook as well. This is the ultimate spot for couples seeking romantic seclusion in the middle of a tropical jungle or individuals who want to escape the world. Unless you feel like hitchhiking, you will definitely need a rental car with high ground clearance to comfortably explore the surrounding areas and access the treehouse. While nothing is 'far' on the big island, everything is just a bit out of reach by foot... except of course for those lovely, yet dense, jungle strolls.

  • The tree house was awesome! What a magical experience in nature in Hawaii! The tree house was just like the pictures, and the frogs outside were great to fall asleep to. I was a bit apprehensive of bugs, but the screens kept the bugs out just fine. The only reason I took a star off of this review was because the bed sheets and pillows smelled strongly of mildew. I understand that Hawaii is a moist climate so this may be unavoidable. If you are someone who has mold or mildew allergies, consider that before booking. Otherwise we had a great stay!

  • No matter how breathtaking you think this listing is, just wait until you see it in person! Pictures can’t capture just how perfect this place is!

    Tom2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a magical place, you can't ignore your inner child when you're at the tree house. You have all the privacy in the world and it's a place where you truly connect with nature. Loved it!

  • We had a wonderful time at Kristie's beautiful tree house. The house and the location are quite spectacular! Not only did we enjoy the beautiful house in the wilderness but we also truly enjoyed the little things like the apt books and games she had left for us. My wife really enjoyed showering with the view of the wilderness 🤭. Also, special mention for her hospitality and ease of check-in and out, everything was very smooth. Would definitely recommend this experience! Thanks Kriste! 😃

    Anand2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Stay here. Just do it. If you love the outdoors and just getting way, this is the spot for you. Communication was a breeze and finding it was easy because she literally covered any questions/needs that could have come up. Beautiful spot.

    Parcella2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place. 100 per cent would recommend. Super private and great romantic get a way. PICTURESQUE!! Great host too, organised and thoughtful

    Nisa2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • What an enchanting place! I am not an outdoors person, so this treehouse was the closest to camping I will ever come. Glamping is an understatement. Perfectly decorated, lovely touches such as brownies, robes, and postcards to send, and a sense of wonder waking up surrounded by lush forest, orchids, and a family of pigs and chickens. And the stars at night! The eco friendly utilities worked without a hitch, but we tried to use the electricity minimally to be sure we kept enough of a reserve. An SUV was definitely necessary to access the road to the tree house and I would recommend checking in during daylight hours to make getting situated easier. 15 minute drive to Volcano National Park, making this the perfect home base for exploring. Easy drive to Hilo.

    Liz2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! All we could hear at night was the rain and frogs, the shower is awesome, you can open the glass shades and you're pretty much showering in the jungle/forest, super quiet. It's all solar but we had no issues with it, easy to use and super comfortable. Perfect get-a-way.

    We are a real treehouse at the summit of Kilauea. We are less than five minutes from the main gates to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. During this time of needing to avoid contact with others, the treehouse allows island residents respite from the everyday. #weaccept TA-020-255-1296-01
    This is a custom designed treehouse, built by the same crew you see in Treehouse Masters on TV. The Jurassic attitude of the rainforest is preserved on the grounds. We also have a wedding venue nearby you may view in the photos. Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park borders the end of the street but can be accessed only through the main gate about two miles away. *** 2019 notes: There is no surface lava at this time. Our air quality is now some of the best anywhere. There are scant emissions from the volcano. Steam comes out of the ground, signs of the hot magma below. The steam is not VOG. There is currently no eruption. There are no signs an eruption is coming, or restarting. Volcanoes are unpredictable but they do give signs before going into action. Those signs typically are increased seismicity over a period of weeks and months, and sometimes years. No signs currently. The changes in the park due to the last eruption cannot be shown other than in imax format- they are that enormous. This is an excellent time to visit. Notes regarding cancellation and changes: please read the policy as published. Airbnb writes the policies and all of us must adhere to them. If you are feeling a need to cancel, you may wish to reconsider and change dates instead or discuss all options with us directly before deleting your reservation. Mahinui Na Lani hangs in ohia trees growing over a lava tube in the rainforest that extends into Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The treehouse was conceived as a companion to our rainforest pavilion, a Bali style structure a couple of blocks away, intended as an intimate wedding venue. Both may be reserved, and there are a couple of photos of the pavilion included in this series. The treehouse is accessed via a path that is about 100 meandering feet in the forest, lava boulders set into the side of the lava tube, and ladders. The ascent is somewhat steep once you reach the lava rocks. For your safety and comfort, we provide day packs to transfer whatever clothing is needed for your stay from your luggage into the abode. There is a special recessed corner dedicated to your stuff, with hooks for clothes, and a couple of night stands with drawers that can hold less bulky items. It's Hawaii, and the climate is mild, the atmosphere everywhere very casual. We also provide bathrobes. The treehouse itself is built on two levels, connected via a ship's ladder. The main level includes the living room, with two chairs and an ottoman, flat screen for viewing films & playing CDs, built in indoor window table & stools, small kitchen, outdoor shower, and composting toilet & vanity. The indoor fireplace is a Jotul propane stove vented to the outside. Outdoors on the lanai there is a cedar hot tub, and a teak table and chairs for al fresco dining in the trees. The upper level is also upper canopy, with birds actually flying around beneath you sometimes. There is a queen sized bed with a memory foam mattress, the tiny "closet corner" and another lanai. The windows other than the french doors onto the lanai are stained glass, made by a local artist. There is no kitchen. There are plates and utensils so you can bring in take out and enjoy your meal either indoors or outdoors in solitude. There is a sink so your plates and utensils may be cleaned. You can make hot beverages. There is a French press and a tea pot. We encourage you to enjoy the nearby restaurants and recognize the treehouse experience is not a cooking experience. This is not by our choice but a change we are forced to make to comply with anti-vacation rental legislation on our island. We are unable to know precisely what restaurants are offering take out but at this writing Kilauea Lodge does so, and the Thai food truck seems still to be operational. We invite you to consult Experience Volcano for up to date notices about meal services. The house was built primarily of recycled materials. The fir floors and redwood and cedar siding were once a church. This particular area is adjacent to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where Kilauea has been active for decades. If you are reserving in the near future, it is likely the park itself will be closed. There are however hiking trails outside the park, particularly on Mauna Loa. Please disregard the information in this notice as to places to go, for the duration of the restrictions on island. Please follow all laws as to keeping the effects of the virus to a minimum. There are hiking trails in and around the park through rainforest, desert, volcanic devastation, even a path with footprints preserved from an eruption over a hundred years ago. There are petroglyphs. Less than a mile from the treehouse there is Volcano Village, with restaurants and art galleries, a couple of places to buy gas. The entrance park itself is about two miles away. The neighborhood is rainforest, with many unbuilt upon lots. The reason there is no view of the treehouse through the forest is because the rainforest is very dense. There is the floor, very jungly with ginger, native ferns, and trees. Mid canopy are the tree ferns, some twenty feet tall, and over a hundred years old. The upper canopy is a mixture of ohia trees with red lehua flowers, Hawaiian holly, and others. We are asked from time to time if more than two people can stay in the treehouse. We can especially understand that families would like to bring their children to share this experience. The treehouse is a two person space. Everything is designed to be a honeymoon experience. While it is possible for more than two people to sit together and chat, only two can sleep over. There is no rollaway bed, nor is there room for one or for any other furniture beyond what is there already. Hall of Fame: The treehouse has been featured in Extreme Cribs, on episode 13. The Ellen Show: Kim Douglas's Tropical Vacation Ke Ola Magazine Volcano Tree House story in July - August 2011 edition Trip Advisor: One of the Ten Most Romantic Places to Stay (global selections) PureWow feature Treehouses of the World, Travel Channel European segment, by Treehouse Masters series Buzzfeed blogs and news articles published globally You will have access to the entire property, including the small structure below the treehouse near where you park your car. You may safely lock your luggage inside that room and use the day packs inside during your stay. If you use a CPAP machine, please contact us prior to making a reservation. There is only one treehouse on the property. We live nearby and come by regularly to maintain the treehouse. It is likely we will meet you on arrival. Otherwise, we are available by cell phone, text, email. When we are away, someone else who lives locally will be available to greet you and take care of your needs. The treehouse requires daily attention because it is off grid. This is generally done between 11 am and 4 pm, and most guests are away for that portion of the day. We do ask that if you are staying all day at the treehouse, that you communicate with us to let us know when one of us can come up and take care of the place. The neighborhood is mostly old growth rainforest with a few houses here and there. When you drive up, you will notice there are neighbors across the street and next door. You will forget about them once you walk through the moongate and enter the world of the treehouse. Sometimes of a late afternoon and evening you may hear a local hula halau practicing. We hope you find the sounds of laughter and Hawaiian language and music adds to the ambience. A rental car is a necessity. While there is public transportation, it is a long slow trip up the mountain. Uber and Lyft are available here, but the distances are such that renting a car tends to be more efficient. The park is a couple of miles down the road, and so large you will want to drive and not attempt to walk. Volcano Village is about a mile up the road. You might like to stroll up and back. If walking into the village for dinner, a flashlight for your return is an absolute must. We provide - please take it with you! If you are planning a first trip to our island, we suggest that you stay 2 or 3 nights at the treehouse. Please contact us for for discussion before you reserve if you wish. The island is truly big, and most people would rather spend the night on the west side of the island rather than return to Volcano after a day of play over there. Although we show rates for long term stays, we would like to discuss plans with you before completion of a stay of 5 days or longer. When you decide you want to stay at the treehouse, you are coming to a place unlike any other. There are other treehouses, but each is unique. This treehouse is off grid. This means it requires hands on service, every day. For most people, this is a seamless thing that happens while they are off adventuring. Every once in awhile, people come and do not want to leave, at all. We understand, but we do want to let you know that we must enter the treehouse on a daily basis to service the composting toilet. The hot tub also requires attention. The treehouse is in the forest. It is inside the trees, and this means easy critter access. To keep them outside, we carry your rubbish away and make sure your food is stored adequately. It is not a good idea to leave unwashed dishes for these same reasons. This is the tropics. There are insects. They are not as prolific here as at lower elevations, but they do exist, and will visit you especially at dusk with lights on. Spiders are residents of the forest. They are food for the birds. If you love the birds, please tolerate their food supply. We empty the house of spiders daily but we do not poison. The spiders come back at will. They are small, and stay in the corners. They leave evidence of their visit in the form of webs. We do our best to be inhospitable to them, but they persist. When there is weather, like hard rains and winds, from your perch in the trees you will experience the sound and feel in ways you may have not before. The house is tight - the weather does not enter if the doors and windows are closed. But the sounds can be formidable. You will feel close to nature.
    The neighborhood is part undeveloped rainforest and part lots with houses. There are no tract homes - every house is individually designed and built. There are no street lights so at night it is very dark. The forest tends to obscure moonlight. There is a hula halau that practices nearby some afternoons, and you can hear their Hawaiian music and chants late in the day.
  • What can I say? An incredible stay!! A must visit Airbnb. I would fly to the Big Island again just to stay on this property. The communication was excellent. We had some pretty rainy weather during our stay so our check in time changed, but the hosts were quick to respond to us and adapt to our check in needs.They met us at the property and showed us around the treehouse. The Treehouse itself is AMAZING. The entrance is grand, the hot tub outside is incredible, shower outside is such a neat touch, the compostable toilet works great. Everything about the treehouse was impeccable. There is a fireplace to keep warm on cooler/rainy days/nights. There is also WIFI available, although the data in the area is pretty good so we did not utilize the WIFI. A 10/10 stay. Highly recommend. Cannot say enough good things! A dream come true for those looking for a unique stay!

    Annette2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! I’ve been visiting this island for 20 years and this was such a unique experience even after I thought I had done it all! Super comfy bed, the hot tub was so fun and luxurious and the outdoor shower felt amazing in the cool air. Location is so ideal for visiting the Volcano National Park. We loved it!

    Lisa2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing rain and rainbows. Could not have dreamed of a better romantic getaway. Read the description carefully, it is very accurate.

    Rebecca2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re staying in Volcano, there is no other place. A beautiful treehouse with attention to every detail.

    Adam2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay here, wife loved it. Close to Volcano and the National Park. Exactly as in the pictures and a very unique place to stay. Plenty of power for everything we needed, good heater, off the grid no problem at all. Loved it and would return.

    David And Qian Qian2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cool experience, already planning the next stay in the treehouse.

    Ben2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • A highly romantic hideaway for a couple. This is a very special place hard to find elsewhere. It is exactly as described in the add. Important is to read these instructions to understand the limitations of a tree house and the fact that local taxes are charged separately. Smooth communication, and daily service. Very close the the Volcano National Park so a great place to enjoy the park.

    Felix2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Cool space if you want to get off the map for a couple days. Highly recommend using the soaking tub and outside shower. It’s awesome!

    ***** I highly recommend***** TURO Car ,SUV and 4x4 rentals
    Aloha Nature Lovers! Located between Waipio Valley and Volcano National Park. Great hiking! Convenient and very private swimming holes to enjoy at your door. One can spend days chasing the many private waterfalls and exploring our property. Swimming the pristine waters that fill natural pool below our many private waterfalls. Enjoy each breath of pure sweet air. The little cabin has a great ocean view to watch the ships go sailing by & clouds parade down the coast. Nights are wonderful just sitting around the campfire, star gazing and telling stories. Tent camping for the kids is safe and easy. Located 20 miles north of Hilo. Just 1 mile from the highway. Very serene with only the sounds of the flowing waterfall, breezes through the trees, and tropical birds. My three horses (Nohea , Mahina and Shy Girl) will be eagerly awaiting to greet you. Aloha and Happy Trails! ***** I highly recommend ***** TURO CAR ,SUV and 4x4 rentals NOTE : Flooding may and does occur in North Hilo and on the Big Island. Please use extreme caution when near, swimming in or crossing any waterway. 4x4 or jeep is recommended for exploring back road areas on the island and to get to my place. 4x4 is required to access Waipio Valley, Green Sands Beach, and Mauna Kea. Book a cheap car then ask for a jeep up-grade when you arrive for good deals on jeeps from Budget. Aloha and be Safe! **** I highly recommend **** TURO Car , SUV and 4x4 rentals
    Awesome ocean views. Papaaloa Country Store , Bar and Restaurant is just down the road . Great pizza and local style fresh food. Nightly live music almost 6 nights a week .
  • A peaceful, beautiful place! Amazing!

    M. J.2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful time here even though it was a short stay. Keith and his daughter Ashley we’re both great hosts nice to talk to and helpful with everything. The view is amazing, the sound of the waterfall was soothing and it just felt great to be surrounded by nature and the horses and peacocks. We also explored the river with all its waterfalls. It’s so beautiful and just a short walk from the tent. Everything is a bit rustic, so you need to be comfortable with the outdoors. The outdoor shower was our favorite of the 6 we experienced on this trip. Surrounded by tropical plants, hot water and a great view. We look forward to coming back and staying for longer next time.

    Brian W.2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gorgeous location, the accommodations are simple & clean & we had everything we needed. It is the perfect place to enjoy fresh air and the countryside in HI. The horses, waterfalls, peacocks and chickens were beautiful. We loved it!

    Catherine2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Keith and his daughter, Ashley were very kind during our stay. The tour of their grounds/property was lovely. We really enjoyed our stay here amongst the jungle, horses and waterfalls + some chickens. You definately need 4x4 to get to the property. We had a Hyundai Elantra and there was no way we could have gotten in without causing damage to the car. Thankfully, Ashley picked us up at the local restaurant due to a flash flood at the streams surrounding their property. We truely appreciated the hospitality and kindness. Ashley was calm and relaxed which put us at ease when it came to the flash flood and getting into the property.

    Justyna2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Off-grid and off the beaten path. If these are things you like, you will love this place. Stars galore, frogs and the crash of a waterfall singing you to sleep every night, you really get to be a part of nature in Hawai'i . We had zero issues with bugs and the chickens were friendly neighbors!

    Alana2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Spotlessly clean we enjoyed our 2 night stay. Some of the touches are a little worn, but the overall feel is complete relaxation and fantastic value. We ate dinner in both evenings there enjoying the view from the recliners to the sea.

    David2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This bungalow is off-the-grid so expect to unplug and unwind! However, the house is equipped with a generator which enables you to charge small electronics and use a small amount of wifi per day. Follow the very detailed directions on how to get there; definitely recommend 4wd vehicle as there are river crossings and the hills are steep. Located just north of Hilo, the house is a one-room bungalow that is sectioned off into living and sleeping space. It was perfect for the two of us; there is a ‘balcony’ area where one can relax and watch the sunrise over the farm; there is space with a dining table and kitchen space. The kitchen has a refrigerator and a gas stove plate. The sleeping area has a bed with mosquito net to keep bugs out. We could even see the waterfall from the ‘bedroom!’ The bathroom is around the outside of the bungalow (open to air as pictured) and provides a lovely view into the surrounding forest! Numerous animals on the farm included several friendly horses; some rambunctious and noisy chickens; a flock of peafowl; little coqui frogs; and the ubiquitous island geckos! There are many fruit trees on the property and the fruit was amazing! We followed Ashley’s advice and hiked down to the waterfalls on the property— it was really beautiful, and we would definitely stay here again when visiting the Big Island!

    Jessica Stephanie2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Keith & Ashley’s place is truly a nature lovers paradise. I had no trouble finding it, and the roads were totally fine with my Jeep rental (as the hosts say: 4WD is highly recommended!). I spent a lot of time around the property exploring, and getting into the pools/waterfalls nearby. The water was brisk, but that’s to be expected this time of year, and I prefer cold water swimming anyway. The horses are friendly, and the chickens were hungry for crumbs! It was very clean, and the bed was comfy. I was a woman traveling alone, and it was perfect from beginning to end. Aloha!

    The Mokuna Treehouse is a completely off grid, eco-friendly home. The house is powered through solar energy and water comes from rain catchment. While being a one-bedroom studio, the house feels very spacious and well organized. The main living space is about fourteen feet from the ground. Covered, comfortable, wide sets of stairs with railings will lead you to your beautiful suite. The high setting gives you picturesque treetop views of the gorgeous and rare undisturbed Hawaiian rainforest, with it’s numerous Ohia trees with red flowers, Hapu’u ferns, and many more tropical plants. Sometimes you get lucky enough to see some exotic birds and small reptiles such as geckos and chameleons. At night, you can gaze at the stars and listen to the coqui frogs sing. We used a lot of natural materials throughout the house and it gives it a very warm and inviting feeling. The house has wood floors in the entire space, a modern concrete countertop, a small kitchenette area, a specious bathroom with a very large standing shower and a real toilet. The kitchen does not allow you to cook food, but there is a sink, a mini fridge, and a coffee maker. On the lanai, you will have access to a small propane grill to bbq any local delicacies. The ceilings are about 14 feet high at the peak and half of the gable roof is transparent and gives a lot of natural light. Some of the highlights of the house include the comfy king size bed and the enormous window within the shower that pans from top to bottom on one of the sides which gives you the feel that you are actually showering outdoors! There is a small lanai on the west side of the house where you can relax and enjoy great views of the rainforest and garden. Furthermore, there is a huge net that overhangs the main entrance of the home, underneath the main living space. It is such a fun lounging area where you can just relax, nap, and enjoy the surrounding forest. There are many different plant species all over the property. Enjoy a quaint stroll through the garden in the back as well as up and down the path to the main gate. So many things to see everywhere you look! We do not offer wifi and we highly encourage our guests to immerse themselves into a full nature retreat and detach themselves momentarily from technology and their portable devices while at the tree house. :)
    The Mokuna Treehouse is situated on a quiet street with little traffic, only 2 minutes away from the main road that loops the island. The house is located in the town of Volcano, which is close to three thousand feet in elevation, so it does get a bit colder up in this area (temperatures sometimes dropping to the low fifties at night). The southeast part of the Big Island does tend to get a decent amount of rainfall, so it is normal that you encounter some showers at some point throughout the day. Although Volcano is a small town, you have access to everything you may need within just a few miles from the house. Volcano Village is only five to ten minutes away and has a couple of general stores, a coin laundry, a hardware store, a gas station, and several great restaurants and cafés. There are also a few art galleries and even a winery. Every Sunday there is also a farmer’s market held in Volcano Village where you can buy all sorts of local produce and much more. Volcanoes National Park is also extremely close, where you have access to a discount price gas station, a restaurant, several unique hiking trails, a view of the active volcano, and even a bowling alley! The park is open 24hrs, so you may enter at any time. The best time to see the active volcano is definitely after dark on a clear night. The closest airport near Volcano is in Hilo, which is about 40 minutes away. Kona also has an airport on the other side of the island, but it is about two hours away. The nearest beaches are about a forty minutes drive from Volcano. A favorite is the Black Sand Beach on the south portion of the island. The southeast part of the Island has so much to see. Definitely have a rental vehicle available to catch a glimpse of all the gems this side has to offer!
  • Ekaterina's place is exactly as advertised...an Eco-friendly tree house in the Hawaiian rainforest. It's a great way to learn about being totally off the grid and how to use resources (water, electricity etc). Our favorite part was the sounds from the rainforest! I mean, it was pure magic- hearing the sounds of birds and frogs. What a lovely place to spend a night in such a beautiful part of the Big Island!

  • Amazing! So glad we stayed here. What a unique opportunity in today’s world to get away from technology and enjoy the beautiful sights/sounds of the jungle. This was a stay we’ll never forget. The space is even better than imagined as are the hosts. Also loved the opportunity to see what it’s like to live off grid. They’ve thought of everything; you’ll love this place!

    Brad2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Really cool oasis in the rainforest near Volcanoes National Park. We only stayed for one night, but it was great. We loved being up above the tree line and looking out the giant window from bed into the forest. The shower is fantastic and the sound of the rain on the roof gave everything an extra cozy vibe. Really fun addition to our trip and all the AirBNBs that we stayed in.

    Brian W.2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely wonderful experience! The space is unique and the location is a great balance of secluded and near other human beings.

    Kat2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A fun experience. Everyone should do it Atleast one time in your life! Great host!

    Crystal2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We have a fantastic time staying at the Mokuea Tree House. It is definitely one of the more unique AirBnB experiences that we have had. It’s off the grid and located in a beautiful area on the Big Island. It’s really close to Volcanoes National Park so it made our visit to the park very easy. The Thai food truck down the road (Tuk Tuk) is amazing and definitely a must visit with limited food options nearby. During our stay, I unfortunately left my wedding band behind after checkout. The hosts were FANTASTIC in working with us to get me my ring back, I have nothing but good things to say about the Mokuna Tree House and cant wait to visit again sometime.

  • The house is very spacious and comfortable. Very well equipped. The host is very gracious and extremely welcoming. We had everything we needed and more than expected.

    Isabella2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • A 5 star Airbnb. Location is great, close to downtown for foods and grocery, but not far from the attractions. Space: It is super clean and there are lots of thoughtful touches provided by the host. The space is huge and would be great for a big family. Communication: Morris and Yuka are very helpful, everything including local tips and supermarket coupon are provided from our communication. I’d highly recommend Morris and Yuka’s place for whoever would like to visit Hilo.

    Caroline2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Morris is a five-star host only because they don’t make 10 stars! Morris was very attentive to our needs and showed a level of generosity that is rare in today’s world. We felt welcome and at ease with Morris immediately and it was very clear that he wanted everything to be just right for us....and it was! I recommend staying at this location without hesitation!

    Timothy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We were 6 adults and 1 kid stayed for 2 days. When we arrived in, Moris welcomed us warmly. The house was big and clean. He prepared everything such as kid toys, full kitchen, washing machine, winter cloth, welcome frute breakfast and the small gift. We also liked outdoor bbq grill. It's little difficult to find the entry od house from the highway but we didn't suffer from the road noisy. We definitely recommend this house to everyone.

    Hyundong2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful time with my family! There were playground equipment for children aged 0 and 4 to be able to play with fun, and the response was quick and complete. I want to stay again!

    Noritaka2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve stayed in a lot of Air B&Bs over the years but Morris was by far the most wonderful host we’ve met. Great communication, local tips, fruit and breakfast provided for the first day. The house has everything you could possibly need from beach equipment to coolers to a karaoke machine! Highly recommended.

    Rosie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a hostel with attentive consideration from the host. The house is very clean and there is no shortage for me.

    Sooji2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a great week at Morris and Yuka’s place in Keaau. We were amazed by the amenities in the house - it was extremely well stocked with everything you could need and then some! I always wish for a lighted magnifying makeup mirror (which is usually only found in really fine hotels) - well guess what! We were also amazed by the gifts of food that were waiting for us - fruit, coffee, candy, wine, bottled water, eggs, rolls, jam, butter, and sausage. I thought that was very generous. The listing was very clear and accurate about the road noise - this did not bother us, but it might bother some. There were also frog and bird noises, which, again, did not bother us. We liked that we could recycle and send our fruit and veggie scraps to the compost pile, like we do at home. The location was safe and convenient to Hilo and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Morris was a great communicator, and we corresponded frequently through Airbnb whenever I had questions. It was a great stay and a good getaway from the cold upstate NY winter. Mahalo to Morris and Yuka!

    Keaau, HI, United States

    Our Retreat is a labor of our love and was built as such. A getaway to relax, hike the nearby beaches, forests, and volcanoes and to simply enjoy life. Our place is a peaceful spot completely off the grid in nature. It is 8 miles to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. You’ll love our place because of the location, the ambiance, and the outdoor space. Our goal was to bring the outdoors in and the indoors outside. Our place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
    This beautiful peaceful gem is located 8 miles to the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. The house is secluded off the road for privacy and to be as close to nature as possible. The house is elevated 15 feet but the bed elevates you 20 feet off the ground. It is quite a unique experience. Arrival You first arrive at a gravel driveway and a wood chipped winding path. You pass beside and under the Hapu’u Fern Tree tops and orchids as well as the tree canopy. The trail to our house is about 120 feet deep in seclusion. There are little pockets of ferns and flowers along the trail as well as a Ganesh and a Buddha keeping a peaceful eye on our little sanctuary. Downstairs Lanai You will find yourself on the lower deck/lanai. This lanai is surrounded by hanging plants and places to relax in your own private Zen. There is an 8-foot teak Balinese Bale' daybed to lounge in and it can be a place to relax that is also functional. During our travels to Bali, Indonesia one of our favorite memories is laying in a daybed surrounded by plants and nature, complete Zen and that is what we have re-created in Hawaii. This daybed is a beautiful space to be next to nature and relax, read a book, take a nap and enjoy life. Remember it is vacation time! Looking across from the daybed is a handmade teak bistro set to sip some coffee or tea, read a book or play a game. There are two half tables where you can make a cup of coffee or tea or pick up a bottled water. Downstairs bathroom The center walkway has two barn doors with separate bathroom and shower areas. The shower is a large space with a ten-foot ceiling and large shower "rainwater" nozzle that mimics the soft falling of rain. The shower is powered by solar and on-demand propane for heat. There is a bench to sit and relax and soak in the moment. With the forest in mind, the shower room has bamboo walls and hanging plants to create unique ambiance. The mist from the shower help feed the plants/orchids. There is cruelty-free and nature-friendly shampoo, conditioner, and soap provided. Toiletries in case you forgot any are provided in the bathroom. Across from the shower is the bathroom with woven bamboo walls and a handmade Koa wood wash basin, flushing toilet, mirror, vanity and toiletries for the shower and bathroom are provided in the baskets. In the center walkway, there is another handmade Koa wood wash basin. Upstairs Lanai: You are now winding up the stairs and you arrive to the upstairs Lanai. Another place to breathe and relax. As you explore upstairs, the covered upper deck/lanai catches the rainwater to turn into reusable shower and toilet water. The covered lanai gives you the chance to sit out in the rain forest and watch the rainforest replenish itself. The animals and trees become animated at different times of the day. At night you can stargaze. The furniture is inviting you to “sit and take a load off." There you can breathe in the forest and enjoy the scenery and views of the Hapu’u Fern Tree tops. Towering above you, 40-60 feet in height, are Ohia, Koa, Guava and Eucalyptus trees which comprise the tree canopy. There are wicker chairs with overstuffed cushions and a cozy footrest for two. There are side tables for drinks and snacks and a small table you can play cards on. At night the Coqui Frogs will serenade you with their mating songs from the trees. Bedroom: As you pass through the keyless entry window door you will find another gem. There is an airy feel due to 12 foot ceilings and cathedral style windows in the trusses along with three 4x8 foot windows. Then you will see our little gem of a bed: we are very proud of our own designed “perch platform bed” that nestles you 4 feet in the air. You will feel like you are perched in a tree. The comfy mattress makes for a perfect and tranquil night sleep. The view from the bed is a panoramic view from the 8x4 foot front bay window and on clear nights you can gaze at the stars through the cathedral style windows in front and behind the bed. Now it is your choice to watch stars, birds or the clouds from the bed. There is a built in closet within and beneath the bed where you can put your suitcases or hang your clothes. This bed has it all and we made it to simplify and organize your luggage. No messes, all hidden and contained in the semi walk in closet. On the sides of the bed are two sets of stairs and each side has their own charging USB station for your phone or tablet. Birds, amphibians and animals: Animals you may see in the gardens or in the treehouse: Coqui Frogs, a variety of lizards, Geckos, Jackson’s Chameleons, Endangered Pueo owls have been spotted intermittently at our property. The endemic black-billed ‘apapane, salmon-billed i’iwi, the white and brown ‘elepaio, and the yellow-green colored ‘amakihi are some of the forest birds of Hawaii that can be found. Additionally, feral pigs occasionally scamper about the forest floor but do not like human interaction. Pests: Mosquitoes. This is the rainforest so mosquitoes are common. We provide DEET and non-DEET bug sprays or you can bring your own. We do ask that you do not spray yourself while on our furniture or linens. It stains and is almost impossible to get out of linens. Mosquitoes: we offer bug spray Here is a list of the amenities that are available to you: • Bale’ Daybed • Bistro set and Rattan seating • Platform bed and closet • Outdoor shower  • Flushing toilet with septic • Cruelty-Free Soap and Enviro-Friendly/Shampoo/Conditioner • Towels • Ceiling fan and light • Clean sheets • Bathroom and center sinks • Ice cooler for food and drinks • Mugs and cups for drinks • Maps and Hawaii destination books to use • Cards • Board Games • Books • Outlets (3-prong and USB styles) • Flashlights • Off-road parking • solar fairy lights • solar lights • local snack and water bottles • Bug spray and Citronella candles BEFORE YOU BOOK We wanted to be precise on any hindrances that you may experience we call it uniqueness but make sure you know what to expect before booking our space. We love our house and we are sure you will as well for a Zen –like peaceful experience. The house is off-grid and self sufficient but tradeoffs come with being unique and off-grid. 1. The Rainforest. The rain forest name says it all. How unique is it to be in the United States and in a Rain Forest close to a National Park? The green you will be surrounded by is powered and fed by the rain. It rains 30% of all days. The forest rejuvenates and replenishes with every rain. Our little house lives off the rain catchment therefore we enjoy the rain in all aspects: It gives life; it gives us water. You can experience anything from sun, to mist to torrential downpour. The volcano helps with this ecological system and therefore it is a unique experience to be had but rainforests are not for everyone. 2. The Treehouse, it is 15 feet off the ground. If afraid of heights this is a mild view but might not be right for you. There are only 2 levels of sturdy stairs to climb. No ladder like other places but if any problems walking back 200 feet to our structure or climbing 2 flights of stairs, you may want to reassess staying here. You will need to carry your luggage back and up the stairs. We have a wagon for use but you will still need to haul the luggage or items you are bringing to the house. 3. The Rain. The rainwater catchment system provides water for the water faucets, shower and toilet. It is filtered but not sanitized and in the jungle it is unwise and unsafe to drink the water. We provide water for you to enjoy during your stay. If you consume large amounts of water you might want to bring some with you as well. 4. The Noise. The rain catchment water pumps do make a small amount of noise but only when in use for showers, sinks, and flushing the toilet. The rain falling off the tree canopy does make noises when falling from 40-60 feet and hitting the structure and covered canopy. Additionally, there is a water trap for the structure on the back wall that does make a soft noise while gathering the water when the rain is falling moderately hard. At night, the Coqui’s chirping/singing can be loud. We love the serenade as it drifts us off to sleep but some are bothered by the frogs chirping. During the day and at dusk the native beautiful songbirds can be loud while gathering food and communicating with each other. There are also neighborhood dogs that can be heard barking intermittently in the distance. The last potential "noisy" concern may be the stillness of a forest or the absence of noise which can bother some people that are not use to “unplugging” from technology. 5. Solar Power. The solar panels are located on the roof and batteries are located downstairs. When the skies are clear and sunny the panels gather sunlight and convert into energy but when overcast or raining the solar panels gather small amounts of energy. We have ample amounts but still limited energy. You can run your devices but must be aware of energy conservation because there is only so much stored per day and it is all dependent on the weather conditions and what you are consuming. No hairdryers or irons are allowed for this reason: too much energy consumption. We have battery operated and solar lights throughout the structure as well. Phones and tablets can be charged at anytime with USB ports but laptops should be charged sparingly. 6. The Bugs. Mainly mosquitoes. They are not big but they are present in the rain forest. Hawaii does have mosquito borne illnesses, but mostly on the other side of the island in the Captain Cook area. Being in a rain forest you do need mosquito awareness. Wear mosquito repellant that we supply to you. If you are visiting Hawaii I would suggest buying your own bug spray and sunblock, you will need it throughout the island. With all these considerations…we absolutely love our house and find it to be tranquil while energizing us physically and mentally for the day. We love living in nature but being close to all things. 7. This treehouse has no cooking facilities. We encourage our guests to taste the different flavors that the island has to offer. • 8 miles (13 minutes) to Hawai’i Volcano National Park • 12.2 miles (18 minutes) to Keaau • 20.4 miles (33 minutes) to Hilo • 21.8 miles (35 minutes) to Rainbow Falls • 23.5 miles (35 minutes) to Pahoa • 34.8 miles (51 minutes) to the Lava Viewing area at Kalapana (no direct route) • 36 miles (58 minutes) to Akaka Falls • 45.3 miles (54 minutes) to Naalehu/South Point
    The treehouse is on a quiet gravel road a little over a mile from the highway. The nearest neighbors are a few acres away in all directions. It is remote but close to all things. We have great neighbors but they love their privacy as we love ours. Orchid Isle Estates is surrounded by tree canopies and a myriad of orchids. There are some great restaurants in the town of Volcano as well as in Hilo, Kea'au and Pahoa. Please see our guide at the house for more details There is a little local store, Hirano's, close by for small items and a quick bite. There are two stores in Volcano, a big grocery store in Kea'au and more in Hilo. Farmers Markets are amazing here and no matter what the day you can probably find one open. I have a guide to farmers markets in my book in the treehouse. Our guide to the island sights is our personal opinion to find off the wall touristy and untouristy areas of interest. Beaches, farmers markets, waterfalls, hikes and lava tubes are all contained in the book at the treehouse. I also have printed out guides for you to take as well.
  • I surprised my boyfriend for his 50th. We both fell in love with the treehouse. We felt like we were in an enchanted forest. The bed was super comfy and having coffee was a plus. Thank you for sharing this beautiful place :)

    Tammy2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • What an experience. Loved the little details about this place- the hot shower and variety of soaps was a treat. Tea at night and coffee in the morning made it very comfortable. I would recommend this to the adventurous types who are comfortable with the outdoors!

  • This place was the highlight of my trip. Very cute and full of nature. I wish there was more light in the bottom or at least wifi coz we had no network at all.

    Kanika2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing tree house experience. Loved listening to the rain all night. Short drive to Volcanoes National Park. We brought drinking water but it was not needed as Britt and Michael had already provided bottled water, as well as many other amenities to enjoy this beautiful tree house in the jungle.

    Anna2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This treehouse is the perfect getaway and such a cool place! Definitely the place to stay if you’re looking for a place that’s quiet, serene, and unique (being tucked away in the rainforest...very neat!). Brittany and Michael were great hosts that responded quickly and provided lots of helpful information prior to checking in. They have a book with recommendations and places to see or try that we found to be very helpful as we navigated the Big Island. We spent a lot of time out and about during the day and coming back here in the evening was so relaxing and peaceful. Highly recommend this place to anyone spending time on the island!

    Chelsea2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This was such an incredible experience. Brit and Michael's place was honestly such an amazing experience! It's even more beautiful than the pictures. It truly exceeded our expectations. Wish we had booked more days here as we celebrated our honeymoon. It was so magical and so peaceful! As soon as we arrived, we noticed how clean it was and the bed was so comfortable! The road is really tight and had difficulty reversing. Other than that. Everything else was exceptional! HANDS DOWN THE BEST PLACE TO STAY IN VOLCANO AREA!

    Oscar2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Was a way cooler experience than we anticipated. Relaxing and off the grid. Everything was so clean and welcoming. Bed was super comfortable and the rain at night was peaceful and calming. The seating areas both upstairs and downstairs were so wonderful to just sit and visit. Would love to come stay again when we are in the area!!

    Robin2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for something special and some lone time to yourself, this place is perfect! I loved it! Thank you

    Volcano, HI, United States

    Our Tiny Tropical Treehouse is a very special space full of creativity and beauty. Custom built by an artist, this eco-house is flooded with natural sunlight, rich with wood accents, and inextricably connected to nature. It is ideal for couples and individuals looking for a private retreat nestled away in the jungle. Adventurers, relaxers, writers, and artists will enjoy staying here, a mere 18 mi from all Volcano National Park has to offer and 20 mi from downtown Hilo.
    Tiny treehouse, swinging bridge, and zooming zipline... oh my! This rental is one of a kind. The house boasts an eco-friendly footprint to travelers, budding botanical garden, unique custom interior, and a getaway retreat from busy life. In 2016 Caroline and Melissa embarked upon building this off-grid house. With some serious planning, a hint of overconfidence, and a lot of support, we hit the ground running. At Home Depot we were serendipitously roped into an interview for HGTV's show "Tiny Paradise." The film crew showed up at our door a week later! From then the project took on a whole new energy. We embarked upon new murals, art projects, and all kinds of visual eye candy to make sure every corner of the house was the highest quality we could muster. We hope you enjoy the finished product and all the love and time that went into custom making every inch of this space! If you want to check out the episode we are episode #2 "Tiny Hawaiian Hideaway" in the HGTV series "Tiny Paradise." Below is a description of what you can expect when you visit: Follow the red cinder trail through the stunning botanical array that envelops our off-grid tiny house. Ascend 8 feet up into the air for the cool breeze and a better view of the surrounding flora and fauna. You've arrived! With a total of 13 windows and glass doors, you enter into the comfort and luxury of the home but your view extend hundreds of feet into the surrounding jungle of Ohia and Hapu'u. Once inside you will see dozens of wood accents, from our high-backed log chair, to our Koa Wood Balinese style couch. The loft is held up with posts made from Ohia trees sourced from our own property. We made the loft handrail, coffee table, and hand-towel hangers from trees that had to be cleared during the construction of our house. Enjoy lounging on the expansive Balinese couch while you bird watch, or kick your feet up onto the trunk as you become immersed in a good read. On your way to the kitchen meander past the stained glass window depicting a cardinal, we coincidentally have two males and one female on the property! Also keep an ear out for baby hawk in the early spring. You enter the kitchen and will be blown away by the design of the floating dish racks. The custom Chocolate Albezia wood slab counter top shimmers, as does the glass sink basin and hand blown pendant lights hanging overhead. Relax at the kitchen bar and sip on your morning coffee as you watch the sunrise strike leaves and dew, setting them off into stunning shades of green, red, orange, and yellow. Eat your lunch while pondering the tiny mushrooms and vibrant moss growing on a nearby tree. Drink a glass of wine while you stare at the milky way and the moon. Tucked away in a dark corner of the house is the lava themed bathroom. Enter the bathroom and feel the cool natural stone underneath your feet, be reminded of that lava tube you explored yesterday or will crawl around in today. The main volcanic mural, created with naturally smoothed lava rocks, will captivate your eyes as you shower. The fiery glass sink, with a rough field of lava swirling around it, is a focal point of the lava spilling into your lavatory experience. A local female artist made the themed art piece hanging on the wall; illustrating traditional canoes, hula, Pele (the volcano goddess) and ancient rituals. The sliding barn door and tinted openable window envelop you in the private surreal feel of the space. Enjoy! It's all yours! Before you head to bed you absolutely must make your way across the swinging bridge to arguably the best part of the house. The treehouse! Supported by two rows of sister trees, the deck is a magical place to lay down and look up at the sun shining through the leaves, get close to Lehua blossoms or a herd of blooming orchids, and watch the stars glittering through the branches. We enjoy eating every meal we can out there and doing work while lounging in the reclinable chair. If you're visiting with a romantic partner (eyebrow wiggle), there was a psychology study that found people misattribute the excitement of a swinging bridge to the attraction they feel for a potential love interest. So go on, get your partner on the bridge with you and spice things up. Get your heart beating faster... is it the bridge?... is it your partner? I guess we'll never know. When all the excitement has passed and you're all tuckered out, climb the space efficient right-left ladder staircase to the loft. Wiggle into the comfort and luxury of our memory foam mattress, feel it envelop your body, and then never get up ;). The loft is cozy, but it's a room with a view. Along the headboard a 10 inch window encourages you to stargaze from the comfort of your bed, at one of the clearest skies in the world! I personally love laying on my side staring out the openable window and looking at the silhouettes of the surrounding forest contrasted against the starry night sky. Under the warmth of the comforter enjoy the cool mountain breeze (1900 feet of elevation) as you drift off to sleep. What else can we say? This place is paradise and heaven on earth and our pride and joy. We hope you will love it as much as we do! ********************************************************** The "Eco" in our house: We hope you will love the artistic luxury of the space and re-define what is possible to create with reclaimed materials and an off-grid lifestyle. We built this house ourselves and one of our main goals was for guests to enjoy being off-grid and see first hand how lovely it can be to go green. We adore nature (if you couldn't tell ;) ) and so it was very important for us to have the smallest footprint possible throughout the building process, therefore we hunted, hunted and kept hunting! All 5 of the huge 4 ft x 6 ft windows connecting the interior space to the natural beauty found outside, were reclaimed. We scored on the 2 glass doors because Ace Hardware in Kea'au was de-installing them from their store front. We managed to give dying surfboards new life in our functional art piece on the treehouse deck. We collected lava rocks from local beaches to create the volcano mural that defines the bathroom and the red cinder trail was locally sourced from a volcanic red cinder cone. The entryway mosaic was made possible by broken tiles that were going to be thrown away at Floor Decor in Hilo. The hardwood floors came from my uncle's hardwood floor business after a sample batch for a hotel wasn't the exact color that the interior designers were going for (lucky us). Our water catchment tank and stove top are second-hand and we are utterly proud of it all! We hope you remember the beauty of this place & bit of land long after you are gone, to us, "eco" can also mean comfy!
    We are situated in the Ohia jungle. Throughout a day only a handful of cars will drive by. (Once, we had lumber delivered in the middle of the road because we didn't have a driveway yet.) From the house only one house is visible in the back distance but you can occasionally hear our front neighbors. There are abandoned vehicles down the road but that's not uncommon in rural neighborhoods on the Big Island.
  • This place is quite the experience! You feel very isolated and organic in this charming, jungle-like setting. The bed is very comfortable, kitchen handy for a small stovetop meal, and the couch is a perfect place to curl up with a book. I was even able to flow through some yoga on the deck! Occasional noice from the neighbors may drift through the window, but it was not an issue for our stay. Would recommend!

    Francesca2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • The treehouse was very pretty and clean inside. Melissa and Paula were great hosts.

    Athena2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Adventure awaits! Clean-thoughtful touches-artistic and serene. Book and enjoy for yourself!

    Ann2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnb’s I have stayed in and affordable! The whole experience was very easy!

    Rena2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a treat! Fantastic, off-grid getaway near VNP. Would highly suggest 4-wheel drive, especially with rain around. Gravel roads with deep puddles are a little rough to get through, but very cool once you arrive!

    Katy2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Just amazing 😍

    Katie2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was an awesome place to stay! Super clean, Melissa was there to answer any questions we had (We got lost because we didn't follow directions well) but she had no problem helping us. Would definitely stay here again and we highly recommend this to anyone thinking about staying near the volcano park or just trying to get away for a few days.

    Blake2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place was awesome! Super clean, comfortable and nice touches. Everything was just like in the pictures and made for a very relaxing stay!

    Jianbo2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Super cool place, clean, comfortable, safe, quiet with a nice big deck. The views are nice because everything is nice in hawaii. Much more of a local area which is cool but only a mile to the more tourists, expensive restaurant and shops. I would go back in a heart beat and I live Kaua’i! Lastly my husband is completely blind and he had no problem find his way around and love the place!

    Annie2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! If we ever come back we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

    Ryan2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nadia's studio condo is a great find in Hilo. The location is close enough to everything, yet kinda secluded, which was nice. The studio itself is very clean, comfortable and well equipped for however long tour stay is. The place also has a decent sized lanai, which is a great place to relax. Overall solid place and great stay.

    Phil2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Accommodation was as expected and described, parking outside the property was available on both nights. Clean, comfortable bed, hot shower with good water pressure and plenty of amenities available to us if required. Would stay again if in the area.

    Brian2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • It was great, it had everything you could think of and very clean. I mean they had a first aid kit on the bathroom counter as well as bug spray, sun tan lotion, all sorts of stuff. Snorkeling stuff surf boards boogie boards and a bottle of champagne 🥂

    Wendy2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Nice clean comfortable accommodation near the airport. Several good facilities for adventurers and sportsmen. Nadia is also very available and communicates information well. I recommend.

    Yves2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was nice and well equipped. It was very nicely decorated. The parking lot is right outside the door and the location is central. We would book the accommodation again at any time.

  • We had an amazing stay at Maria and Steve’s throughout our time in Hilo! They have a great setup for couples with a lovely bedroom, clean bathroom and a perfect lanai for hanging out in the nice Hawaiian outdoors. Our hosts were helpful and shared great tips about the island and made us feel very welcome! 10/10 would stay again.

    Angela2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Maria’s place is lovely, so close to the ocean that you can hear it all night long, comfortable, and easy to find! I would highly recommend

    Jaydn2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful hosts! Very accommodating and quick response! Cozy!

    Patrick2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful spot. It is only 5 or 10 minutes from the Hilo airport but you can hear the ocean at night. The rooms are large, attractive and clean. There is a sweet lanai with kitchenette and counter for eating. Maria and Steve are great and can give you suggestions for places and activities to experience.

    Robin2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Maria and Steve's place; our own little home, with two lanai's. We ended up following the food suggestions from Maria, eating at Seaside Restaurant. Truly great food and service. The back lanai was our late night meeting space, with the rains, the cokais, the sound of the ocean a block away. I appreciated being outside of Hilo town and within walking distance of several beach parks. It was a great time to be had. Much kindness and aloha spirit graced our stay.

    Hillary2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon last month and we absolutely loved the place. There is tons of space to relax in, a big bathroom, and an outdoor lanai (patio) to chill on and listen to the rain/natural sounds. You can easily walk to some amazing beaches (Carlsmith) where you can walk in the water and see large green sea turtles. Maria and Steve provided free snorkeling gear, which we really appreciated. In addition, our amazing hosts provided us with delicious homegrown fruit and answered all of our questions about the locals spots to check out. You won’t be disappointed. You need a car to get around, but its a short drive to Hilo for night life/restaurants and about an hour from Volcanoes National Park (must see).

    Dave2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Maria was an excellent hostess! The location is primo and the space was beautiful.

    Jessica2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing time at Maria and Steve's place. Great communication with the hosts. Everything went great. Very nice people.

    This is a great space for budget minded travelers and who are looking for a safe, comfy and affordable accommodation. The room is in a very humble finished basement suite that my husband and I call home when we are in Hilo. The upstairs and downstairs units have separate entrances. If you appreciate the simple things in life, this space is the place for you. It has privacy, queen bed, wifi, Roku TV, a desk, eating space, kitchenette and a full bath. For $30-45 a night who could ask for more.
    It's a large room with separate areas for entertaining and sleeping. It accommodates 2 people very comfortably on a queen bed and futon sofa. The upstairs is a 3 bedroom home unit that we also Airbnb so it can get a bit noisy when guest have kids or heavy feet. There are a pair of bluetooth noise canceling earphones that connect to the TV which has Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Pandora and more so you can zone out to your show of choice.
    The house is in an old plantation village toward the end of a cul de sac. There is a big park steps from the house that is perfect for a stroll or stargazing. It's very quiet at night except for a few coqui frogs. However the roosters sound off in the neighborhood at dawn and feeding time.
  • Val’s Airbnb is a secret gem and def will be staying there again.

    Romeo2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A great budget friendly private room. Would recommend. Everything a private room needs; Clean, Hot water, wifi, parking, and basic cookware. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

    Michael2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place surrounded by nature. Kind host, very helpful - just ask.

    Veit2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Most likely the best value for money you can get in Hilo. Amazing place to discover the east side of the island from!

    Ricardo2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! If you’re a light sleeper, definitely bring earplugs, as there can be rooster and baby sounds. It had everything we needed, I’d stay again.

    Sean2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We can spend relaxedly in large room. The kitchen and shower room are almost reserved, The host, Val, is very friendly but gives me a reasonable sense of distance so I can relax. I can lend a washing machine and a dryer for free, so I think that long trips will be saved. I couldn't hear any chickens except in the kitchen, and I didn't mind the frog chorus personally. I was happy to see Amazon Prime!

    Nobuo2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Away in a safe place, this basement apartment was indeed a bargain! You get what you paid for - a clean and safe accommodation!

    Matt2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Val’s place was perfect for our 3 Day trip. A Very private space, close to downtown Hilo. The bed super comfy, lots of space, easy to check-in, and they were quick answering our questions. Although I must say if you’re a light sleeper this might no be for you. Rouster , birds and frogs can get loud at night. Besides that no complaints.

    ALOHA! My property is steps away from Carlsmith Beach Park also known as Turtle Beach where you can snorkel with Pacific turtles. It is also 5 mins away from Richardson beach park a prime spot for snorkeling. My lanai overlooks a rainforest. 10 mins to downtown Hilo, and 5 mins to the Airport. Recently the glow of Kilauea lava can be seen from my property.
    Hilo has Imiloa Astronomy Center, two art gallerys in town and one in Volcano Park and two museums. There is a black sand beach one mile away. The beach where I live is great for snorkeling and title watching. There is a black sand beach in Pahoa and a green sand bears it South point, There is a new back sand beach in Pahoa and a green sand beach at South point
  • What an amazing location!

    Craig2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Margaret is a very nice and warming person. The place has a nice location, near the black sand beach and a perfect snorkel place. The Hele-on bus goes in front of the condo.

    Constanza2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Margaret is super friendly and easy. The room and the apartment are nicely located next to a beautiful bay with many huge sea turtles. I love turtles so for me the location was perfect. At night you hear nice nature sounds, and sometimes an airplane but not much and that didn’t bother me. As a solo traveler I really liked staying with Margaret, to have nice contact.

    Hester2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Just FYI- I didn’t realize this wasn’t a Private Condo to ourselves, so I was surprised at my mistake. When we met Margaret though, I knew we would get along splendidly. She’s a wonderful hostess and thoughtful roommate. Thank you for making us coffee each morning and telling us exactly where to go to swim with the Biggest turtles. Best Hostess ❤️

    Jimi2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Margaret was a lovely host and her home was quiet and comfortable. The location can’t be beat - we went snorkeling at the Carlsmith beach park and saw beautiful fish and tons of turtles! Her place is about 45 mins from volcanoes national park and easy to find, with great parking. We can’t thank her enough for inviting us to her home!

    Katherine2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

    Convenient and comfortable place in downtown HILO for the SINGLE traveler. No cleaning or cancellation fees. I'm located 4 miles from Hilo Airport Everything is walking/biking distance: Hilo Bay, parks, cafes, live music. This old neighborhood (1930s) can be noisy with night frogs, neighbor's dogs, wild roosters. So this may not be a good place for those needing peace and quiet. Earplugs are provided If you don't have a car, all guests are welcome to borrow bicycles
    Guest stays upstairs in private apartment, and host lives in a separated part in the basement.
    Guest stays in the private upstairs quarters of a small house. Our neighborhood is from the 1930s in downtown Hilo. But still has the country-feeling with birds and wild chickens.
  • Quiet location with an old Hilo feel!

  • Donna is very kind. The location is perfect and the house is very clear. Highly recommended.

    Wei-Lin2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Donna was a gracious host. I enjoyed riding bikes with her and having the bike available to use. Her coffee and breakfast was nice. I enjoyed the massage chair and conversation with Donna. She also provided great tips on local attractions. I slept great!

    Carla2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Donna is a great host. From the moment I steeped stepped through those doors at her house. I was treated with such kindness. You have the floor to yourself. Including Bathroom and Bedroom. I highly recommend this place

  • First of all, this time I changed my return date for one day and there was no accommodation on the last day. I was in a hurry to find a place to stay the next day, but I found Donna's house on Airbnb. It was already in the evening, but as soon as I sent a message telling me that I couldn't explain my situation and stay overnight, I was immediately relieved to answer and I was really relieved. In addition, I was allowed to check in early and listened to the various difficulties. He came to chat in the evening, and on the next day I was grateful to go on a bike tour of Hilo town! A great host with great hospitality. I definitely want to stay at Donna's house again! Thanks Donna

    Yoshie2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Donna is a very welcoming host. Her guidance was really appreciated., helping me find the bike share kiosk nearby for example. I enjoyed lovely breakfasts and delicious coffee. The bed woke me up a bit in the night as it is really creaky, but this did not overshadow my stay.

    Olivia2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful host! Very thoughtful and lovely place, feeling like you're really part of Hilo life

    Yoo Jin2020-01-25T00:00:00Z

  • One of the most modern, clean places I’ve stayed in through Air BnB. It was super close to town and came with many nice amenities including coffee, Alexa, and a big bathtub.

    Nicole2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We decided to stay in Hilo because we wanted to get to Volcanoes National Park. We had a wonderful stay. Nice amenities and extra special touches. The room was very big and had plenty of space to put our luggage. Lots of tips on places to go and places to eat. We go to many Airbnbs. This one is highly recommended.

    Susan2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • You won’t regret staying here! Very modern and thoughtful - sparkling clean! I will keep this hidden gem in mind for another time. Mahalo!

    Chase2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place was beautiful, clean and had just what we needed for a couples getaway. The bathroom is so spacious and the tub was awesome! Alexa was definitely a nice touch. There were instructions on what commands to say for controlling everything in the house. There was also a suggestion book of attractions which was also a great touch. The quiet hours are from 9 pm to 7 am with no parties which is good to know if you have kids or loud of guest. If I could make this place better I would suggest minor changes such as a bigger tv and a mini kitchen in place near the coffee/water. We were very happy with our stay and will definitely come back.

    Sabrina2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • If you need a great central location outside of downtown Hilo in a super clean, super easy-to-use Master Suite with enormous soaking tub, then look no further, this is the best deal and perfect Airbnb experience at this price point in paradise!

    Nestled in the heart of Hilo, this cute and cozy 1 Bed/1 Bath studio is the perfect base while your visiting the Big Island of Hawaii.

    The Lobin-Hung building was constructed in 1926 and comprised of 40+ units some of which are local businesses (front of building). The entrance is only accessible by key, and the gate is kept closed at all times. Security cameras are at the main entrance and in common walkways. Besides a few local businesses , the apartment complex is home to a variety of tenants, from singles to small families. We are definitely a melting pot! The Cute and Cozy unit is located in the far corner of the building, with one of it's windows facing an adjoining gravel parking lot. Though convenient for parking, the sound of incoming and outgoing cars is unavoidable. Our unit has a simple counter top equipped with a microwave, coffee maker and beneath a mini fridge. Shelves above house dishware and silverware for two along with a toaster and electric skillet should you need to whip up something. We are happy to note that the room is exactly as pictured. And for your viewing pleasure we have provided you with NETFLIX, using profile "Airbnb".....enjoy!
    Downtown Hilo is laid back, but you will be glad to know we have something for everyone- here's a few, all of which are no more than a five minute walk from the studio: Shops: Sig Zane/ Hana Hou/ The Boutique/ Hawaiian Force/ Kaula Art and Beads/ Rogue/ Hilo Surfboard Company/ Sun Your Buns/ Hulakai Food/Dinning: Pineapples/ Puka Puka Kitchen/ Poke Market/ Mo's Fish and Chips/ Cronies Bar and Grill/ Hilo Town Tavern/ Farmers Market / Pho Viet/ Naung Mai Thai Kitchen/ Two Ladies Kitchen/ Papa'a Palaoa Bakery/ Lucy's Taqueira / Cafe Pesto We are also located half a block from the local grocery store should you need any necessities during your stay, and if your feeling the need to get in a workout, there’s a gym right across the street!

    Kat2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Ashley’s place is true to pictures and I had a comfortable stay. Her place is easy to find/great access from the main road, in a quiet neighborhood. I appreciated her quick communication and I really loved that my room was sparkling clean. Her instruction on check-in was clear and I didn’t have any problems. WiFi was fast and stable. Rooms are close to each other so I could hear other travelers but it became quiet and was able to sleep after 10 pm. I would recommend this place for your stay at Hilo!

It’s open and airy, or can be closed off for privacy from other guests/family/friends. ✿ BACK BEDROOM ✿ Is very large (20' x 20') and easily sleeps, four additional people. Backroom has a bunk bed and two twin beds. The room has two large closets with shelves and pull out drawers, and some cozy seating. The two twin beds can also be used as couches/seating/lounging. There are two built in's under the windows that can also provide extra seating for a lovely garden view. Perfect room for kids - lots of space to play while mom and dad relax and enjoy their own space. The backroom bedroom is island style and has two walls and ONLY SCREENS on two sides (no windows that close). Side doors are screen doors with chain locks. This back bedroom has privacy curtains. It's tucked away in the back, so still private from the rest of the house. Neighbors are quite far away and all the rooms are totally private. The Bungalow has extra-large overhangs so no rain gets inside! The large screened areas provide an AMAZING rainforest experience, tropical breezes, and beautiful garden views in true open-air Hawaiian style. The room has a new ceiling fan, and sliding patio door to access the backyard of the bungalow where guests can relax, meditate, or just enjoy the lush gardens and the surrounding rainforest. Backroom can be used for yoga/meditation, and I have one, well-loved yoga mat available. ✿ KITCHEN ✿ Is a compact/efficient kitchen and has all the necessities to make a quick meal including large microwave, apartment size fridge, coffee pot, pots and pans, dishes, toaster, electric skillet, electric tea kettle, rice cooker, and new two-burner induction cooktop. There are some very basic food staples in the cupboards - help yourself. Pick up local foods at the farmer's market for an island omelet, fresh salad, or fruit smoothie! Coffee and tea are provided. Check the freezer, I might have made some fresh fruit island popsicles! Kitchen area has a breakfast bar that seats 4 and looks out into the lush tropical garden. Pull up a stool and enjoy your island breakfast while you enjoy the orchids and look for the resident mongoose! Great place for kids to sit and color or hang out. ✿ BATHROOM ✿ The bathroom is full-sized with a large countertop, sink and large mirror.

Guests have access to a side garden as well, that has beautiful orchids and flowers, or the back yard which is a large grassy area, perfect for kids to run around and play. Property is completely fenced and gated for privacy and safety of children - so let them run around! Great spot for star-gazing, as there is no light pollution from town and there are no street lights. ✿ PRIVATE GUEST BACK YARD/GARDENS ✿ The bungalow has a very large private back yard that includes a privacy fence, picnic table, umbrella, and 2 lawn chairs. Large grassy area for kids to hunt for Coqui frogs at night. Enjoy your breakfast/coffee out in the back yard and relax! Bungalow private yard and garden area is about 1/4 of an acre, with no neighbors in sight. ✿ ECO-FRIENDLY ✿ A solar water heater provides on-demand hot water, but please note, this is a 1/2 sized water heater. We encourage guests to conserve island resources and take short showers. We ask guests to use the drying rack and reuse towels when possible. Electricity is 6X higher here than on the mainland, so please do not use extra beds in the back (beyond what you booked for) as this causes extra un-necessary washing/drying of all the bedding. ✿ JUST ISLAND BREEZES ✿ There is no air conditioner in the bungalow, but open screened areas, new ceiling fans provide ample airflow all year round. The bungalow has three ceiling fans, although the unit gets great airflow and breezes through the large open screened areas. There is a box fan in the back closet as well, as some people are not fond of humid climates. Year-round day temperatures are 68 - 93F, nighttime ranges 58 - 78F. In Hilo, air conditioning is not usually needed! ✿ WHEELCHAIRS ✿ Doorways are 30" so may or may not be wheelchair accessible (depending on the width of your wheelchair). There are no stairs, so bungalow has easy access for handicap, physically challenged, or elderly/kapuna. We are here to assist our handicap visitors - so let us know what you need. ✿ SMOKING/PETS ✿ We have a STRICT NO SMOKING/NO PETS policy to ensure the comfort and health of all future guests. You can smoke outside in designated bungalow gardens or guest back yard, just please dispose of any butts. This policy includes ESA pets. ✿ WiFi ✿ YES - Island wide it can be VERY slow....we pay for the highest speed with the best provider, it's still slow. The weather condition that has the greatest effect on a Wi-Fi signal is rainfall, keep in mind Hilo is the rainiest city in the USA. If you need AMAZING WiFi, please don't book the bungalow. ✿ TV/Cable ✿ Bungalow is a TV-Free Zone, hey you're on vacation, relax, or read a good book, spend quality time with each other and detox from electronics. ✿ LAUNDRY ✿ Guest laundry is NOT available on site it's but only 5 mins. to laundromat ✿ AIR CONDITIONING ✿ Not needed - island breezes will keep you cool. ✿ OVEN/STOVE ✿ No standard stove/oven, 2 burner induction cooktop is available or use the large electric skillet. There is a standard-sized microwave and rice cooker. ✿ DISHWASHER ✿ No, my solution is 'eat out' or pick up some inexpensive local food! ✿ HEATING ✿ Not needed, but there are plenty of cozy blankets and it rarely gets chilly in Hilo. If the weather is going to be a little chilly, I'll leave extra blankets for you. Not sure what to do in and around Hilo? Read our personal guidebook to all the hidden places and best places to visit. Find the guidebook at: https://www.airbnb.com/things-to-do/rooms/21186650 Information binders are also available in the bungalow and include local activities, maps, menu’s, lava information. ✿ ABOUT YOUR HOSTS ✿ We're transplants from Northern California.

    ✿ NEIGHBORHOOD: Our bungalow is located in a hidden and secluded, residential area with only 10 lovely homes, so it is generally quiet and peaceful. The neighbors all have dogs, so occasional dog barking during the daytime hours, as well as neighborhood lawnmowers/blowers may affect daytime tranquility at the bungalow. Once in a while, one of our neighbors may have evening guests over for parties or BBQ's and the sound can carry through the open screens. ✿ FROGS: Coqui frogs invaded the Big Island sometime in the 1970's, thought to have hitchhiked on poinsettia plants from Puerto Rico. They are an invasive species with a very LOUD nightly call. Some find them soothing, some find them annoying. In either case, Coqui Blockers (aka earplugs) are provided for adult guests. Our property is a Coqui sanctuary and we do not poison or harm them (hey, they eat lots of bugs!). ✿ EVENINGS: Generally after dinner, the neighborhood it is very quiet and peaceful (except for the Coqui frogs). You can catch up on reading, plan out your next day, take a long bath, sit in the private backyard, enjoy a BBQ, and stargaze, or get some much needed shut-eye. ✿ Neighborhood road is single lane, 5 mph, so please practice Aloha, drive careful and share the road with the neighbors. General 'aloha rule' is right of way is given to the driver going out.
  • Great stay! The cottage is even better than it looks on the web site.it is Martha Stewart in a forest setting. Open air in comfort, amazing sounds to accompany your evening and sleep (frogs, birds, etc). It is a tropical experience with the frills. Loved it!

  • Our time in the Rainforest Bungalow was above and beyond! The bungalow itself is amazing and Mike and Laura were absolutely the best hosts we’ve encountered. We were provided with full day trip itineraries, local tips for beaches, restaurants and events, and extra supplies like beach gear and activities for the kids. If we ever find ourselves in Hilo again, we would stay here again without hesitation!!

    Odis2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location, value, and hospitality.

    Matthew2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had an awesome stay! Wonderful home in the middle of the rainforest.

    Merrick2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptional welcome for families, full of special attentions, a treasure trove of written information on the surroundings, great respect for our privacy, Laura was very receptive to the needs of our family. Well done and thank you.

    Marie-Eve2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at this cute and fun little place! There were so many thoughtful little touches, some fruit and eggs for breakfast, beach gear and even some toys that my 2 year old loved, of the places we stayed at this one felt the most like home. The sound of the frogs and rain at night was one of my favorite things of the trip. Would definitely stay there again.

    Tom2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place if you want to be close to the rainforest and feel like speeling in a tent but are in a nice comfy house. The frog singing at night is very nice and just add a real forest touch.

    Jakob2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Laura and Mike’s place offers a unique experience in a rainforest setting, with intriguing sounds of the rainforest at night. For us, the coqui frogs were not a nuisance at all, but rather an enchanting extra to the whole thing. Everything from check-in to check-out and all in between went smoothly. The hosts have created a nice and welcoming place with extra touches and very helpful tips on what to do and see. They are very friendly and hospitable. And the place is much bigger than we expected! Plus there are all the things that you might need and then some. Boogie boards, snorkeling sets, sand toys, noodles etc. This is a good base for exploring that part of the island. We enjoyed the beaches, the rainforest zoo, the farmers’ market, the drive up the coast as well as a visit to Mauna Kea. Our party of two adults and two kids (6 & 2) had a great time. Thanks again!

  • Janet and Mike's accommodation can be booked without hesitation. Everything is there that is needed. You also get quick answers if questions arise. Hilo is perfect for exploring the eastern island. We were super happy.

    Kathrin2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as stated

    Paula2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    This unique, private Surf Shack is spacious, bright, and has every convenience you will need as your home base to explore the Big Island. The Surf Shack has a comfy bed, private bathroom with an outdoor shower, refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, high-speed WIFI, Smart TV with premium cable and Netflix, and an outdoor patio area with a BBQ. Cooler, beach towels, boogie boards, kayak, and snorkel gear available for you to use during your stay. Parking is well lit for nighttime arrivals.
    The Surf Shack is situated on half an acre and is fresh and airy with high ceilings. Big windows provide the feeling of bringing the outside in ;-) Please note: if you are noise-sensitive, this may not be the best place for you. Enjoy falling asleep to Coqui frogs and waking up to the resident roosters (roosters crow at all hours of night and day). It can get loud here! There are lots of birds, roosters, and the property is located off of a busy road in the Waiakea Homesteads neighborhood. We provide ear plugs and a sleep/sound machine if needed. In the Surf Shack you will find a Welcome Book, which provides information on the best ono grindz (good food) and fun local attractions. Parking is right along side of the Surf Shack. Late and early check-ins accepted. We will send you the door code and leave the light on for you. The Surf Shack is well lit and easy to find. Our location is central to East Hawai’i attractions and super easy access to the Saddle road, which drops you right into Kona.
    Our neighborhood is right above the University of Hawaii at Hilo and the Imiloa Astronomy Center (a science museum). The Imiloa Astronomy Center has daily planetarium shows open to all ages as well as and a restaurant and gift shop. Keola, our cat, lives in the house and roams the yard. We also have wild chickens and a small duck named Petito. Enjoy the slack line and volleyball net or picking some in-season fruit from the trees on the property. Our property is located less than 10 minutes from the ocean in the Waiakea Homesteads neighborhood. You have full privacy but will most likely hear us moving about and may see us coming and going and/or working around in the yard and garden. We are an active family and all have full lives.
  • Its a fine place for a budget traveler basic.

    Sam2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Just as advertised- clean, convenient, and comfy! Recommended.

    Greg2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This space was a great central location. We didn’t hear much around us for noise. We slept with a fan on which covered any noise well except the odd rooster. My kids enjoyed the chicks and snails and exploring the yard.

    Hayley2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so charming & stylish! Peter & Share were as kind as can be, we'd be happy staying here again.

    Francesa2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Peter and Shea’s “Surf Shack”. It was exactly as described, but with an even more comfortable bed! The outdoor shower was wonderful, thoughtfully supplied earplugs made a difference with the night noise others have mentioned. Peter gave us a nice sense of the lay of the land. We would definitely recommend staying here.

    Delia2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay at this cute little place. Please be sure to read the reviews and the information posted by the owners. It is very accurate. Don’t go there and expect total peace and quiet because they are very clear about the little bit of traffic noise there is and the morning wake up call from the rooster. It didn’t bother us at all and like I said they like could not be more up front about it. Loved the outdoor shower! Owners have great communication which begins with the description of the unit, as well as during the stay. Would definitely stay again.

    Maria2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great cozy place, nice outdoor shower!

    Alex2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a comfy little setup--fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and coffee, and even fresh oranges from the tree. Yes, noise, but the host reminded us of that and provides a noise machine and earplugs. It's rustic, but fills the need for a place to stay, do laundry, cook a bit, and even hang out with Netflix if you choose. Bed is very soft (personal whether this is good or not--just providing info).

    Hilo, HI, United States

    Perfect little home base tucked away downtown in Hilo with bright light and ocean breeze. This private room in shared house has a queen bed and is perfect for couples. Located just 5-10 minutes walk or drive from the airport, groceries, banks, pharmacy, restaurants, beaches, waterfalls, and more. Gardens surround the house, making it feel like a secret urban garden oasis. Great spot for east Hawaii exploration, or islandwide adventures. Simple and clean little crash pad, great for travelers.
    The room is upstairs in the main house, facing west and looking over the garden. Its simple and clean; perfect for crashing in after adventuring around the island or arriving to Hilo on a late flight. The room is upstairs, with shared kitchen, washroom, and living room space. There are two rooms that are rented individually so there may be other guests. There are lots of coqui frogs chirping at night; earplugs are provided for lite sleepers. Hilo can be hot and/or humid at times. There is no AC but theres a fan in the room for guests to use. The house is raised up and nestled against a hillside and has lots of windows looking over the gardens that provide a sort of tree house view and feeling. There's almost always a nice ocean or mountain breeze flowing through, as the house is just a few hundred yards from Hilo bay front. Guests are welcome to peruse the gardens outside. There may be fruit to pick for breakfast, or cacao to make chocolate with. Theres a gym next door and neighbors close by so some background noise should be expected.
    The house is located on the west border of downtown Hilo so there are several shops, restaurants, pharmacy, bank, parks, local coffee shops, etc. within walking distance. It is an urban setting so everything is close together. Downtown Hilo is quaint and charming. Very old timey and laid back, there are no high standards here.
  • Unforgettable experience of being submerged in a garden and jungle with an awesome hospitality and charming smile of the host. Simple place, but very comfortable stay with thoughtful touch of plant lover with big heart. Mahalo, Michael!

    Elena2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Michael was such a great host, the room was clean and cozy, and his place was super-convenient downtown. I will be staying here next time I'm in Hilo. Thank you!

    Daniel2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Michael’s place was nice and clean, easy to find, and a quick walk into town. He was very friendly and helpful! I’d definitely stay again next time I’m in Hilo. He even left some fruits out on the counter for us to try!

    Taylor2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Michael’s home is cozy, clean, exactly like the pictures. I would recommend using a fan provided to dim the neighborhood background sounds if you are a sensitive sleeper. This worked perfect for me. (Also, I can recommend Affordable Car rental if you need a local company for a car.)

    Alicia2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • A great affordable room in a great convenient location. Michael is very warm and welcoming. I happen to stay at the same time as two wonderful young women, and sharing the apt with them was fine. Would definitely stay again.

    Ty2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • In the quiet heart of Hilo and within walking distance to everything I wanted. Fresh fruit from the trees, keroke frogs in the evening, and always a friendly cat to converse with.

    Christian2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Humble. Clean. Great location. All the basics. Good value. Michael was quick to respond and very accomodating.

    Jennifer2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Michael’s place was comfortable and clean. There were sounds of birds and people that could be heard from inside. I slept really well and was able to take a nice shower. There are many thoughtful touches everywhere! He gave us a soursop and some star fruit, and there was a shelf with bug spray and sunscreen for us to use. It was a short and sweet stay.

    Beautiful home surrounded by delightful gardens full of tropical foliage and fruit. Located in a peaceful neighborhood only 10-15 minutes from shopping centers, beaches. A great central location for visiting the entire island. All proceeds from this home go to nonprofit relief organization, “Padma Inc.”, which supports widows & restores historical sites in India.
    This is a wonderful home for families with children 5 and older, vacationers, and business travelers alike. There is a full kitchen for you with everything you will need for quick vacation cooking, although, it is our preference to keep the home meat-free. Excellent insulation and ventilation keeps the inside temperature comfortable and cool. You will also have access to delicious drinkable county water and an alkalizing water filter.
    Beautiful peaceful neighborhood with nice quiet streets for strolling, ocean views and the lovely Ainaola Park less than 5 minutes away.
  • Great hosts. Cute space. Close to Hilo! Also a great central location for exploring the Eastern/Southern sides of the island. The loft space of this listing is very cool and fun but is probably best suited for younger/spry individuals. Would highly recommend staying here!

    Kellie2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This tiny jungle home was a gem!

    Paul2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice and comfortable location with lots of little touches and close to town. The hosts had left a welcome pack with snacks and breakfast as well which was much appreciated.

    Arvind2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The landlord responded very quickly, the location is excellent, there are many small things in the house, it is very intimate. The two children were curious about the small attic. Thank you for your reception.

    Heng2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and cozy Tiny house which is actually much bigger than you'd expect. It has everything you need; even a washer and dryer. The ladder to the top floor is steep but there is plenty handles and support to hold onto. It is a romantic feeling to sleep up there. There are fruit trees outside and koki frogs: it is adjacent to 'the jungle': close the windows and you'll be fine. They stop singing at dawn. Overall its a pleasantly stay in nature, even though its close to town. Enjoy

    Franz Amadeus2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The tiny house was much larger than I expected.. twice the size of a tiny house on wheels..more of a cabin. Two full sized beds to accommodate four people easily. Has great laundry room with washer and dryer. Has dishwasher etc. Can stand up in the upper part with no difficulty. Fairly new building ..close to Hilo and in an interesting location in a jungle setting just behind another house. I will book it again on my next trip to Hilo.

    Bud2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Michael’s place was super cool and well-appointed! He was really helpful with check-in and providing some pointers around the area. Overall my family and I had a lovely stay and a great time. Highly recommend!

    This jewel is on the fifth floor and just a few feet from the ocean with an amazing view of Hilo Bay. Sip a tropical drink while listening to the lull of breaking waves from the lanai. You can watch humpback whales breaching in winter. Enjoy Hawaiian sunrises and sunsets with rainbows most days. Easy walking distance to Hawaii's beautiful Liliuokalani Park, Reed's Bay & Coconut Island. As well as many restaurants. Price includes TAT & GET.
    Off street parking. (Unassigned) Security cameras and patrolling guard. A memory foam bed for cloud like sleep. Smart tv connected to the Wi-Fi for your entertainment. The condo is fully equipped with a full size refrigerator as well as complete cooking items including: microwave, blender, rice cooker, steamer, juicer, two burner hot plate, convection/toaster oven, dishes, plates, silverware, glasses (including champagne glasses), etc. Hilo generally is temperate, (between 67-83 degrees), so the unit stays very comfortable with the help of the ocean breezes, overhead and free standing fans.
    This area is nestled around beautifully landscaped parks and boasts beautiful Banyan trees that each have a plaque showing who planted it and when. From Babe Ruth to Amelia Earhart you will be amazed at the majestic beauty that surrounds this area. The oceanfront parks street lights are low wattage, which is required by the world class observatories on top of Mauna Kea.
  • We had a less than great experience with another stay on a different island and were a bit weary. It is an old building and the walk up is not promising. As soon as we opened the door we were relieved. It was beautiful. Clean. Nice temperpedic style bed. Fridge was clean. Dishes and such to use. The best part, there was a coffee maker. It was a great place and would definitely come back.

    Jordan2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Paul’s condo is awesome. It has a wonderful view and you can fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. Even if it’s raining you’re fine because you have Netflix and Amazon Prime on the large flatscreen tv provided!

    Shane2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • We booked this very last minute and I am so glad they accepted. It's a very quiet and cozy one bedroom with everything we needed. Close location to food, things to do, and shopping. They have great recommendations upon check in and give great details. If you're looking for a small and quiet space with an ocean view in Hilo, book this one!

    Anna2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great stay at Paul and Andreas place. The building is older and is a little worn down as previous reviews describe and there is no air conditioning which can make the air a little stagnant at times when the humidity is higher. But the use of the fans provided was perfect for me. The view is fantastic and you often wake up to cruise ships coming into the port. The building was very quiet at night, no problems with noise at all during my 3 week stay. Paul and Andrea answered all of my questions immediately and were GREAT hosts. I would stay again!

    Tom2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and comfortable

    Graciela2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • The space is small but functional. The interior is nicely renovated and comfortable enough. My only two complaints were the following: - Air conditioner vents into the ceiling. In other words the heat taken out of the room is put back into it on the other side and the room temperature does not change much overall. The owner recommended opening a window but there was no bug screen. - The building itself is in need of some serious TLC. It is off putting when first driving up. It is central to all of Hilo and overall a good value for the price anytime of year that the trade winds are blowing. Loved using the guest Netflix account on a rainy afternoon!

    Caribbean2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Paul's space is as it is described, the building is very old and run down however the small apartment was great for our 2 night stay and close to Volcano's national park which is what we wanted. if you are after a flash place to stay, I would recommend staying on the Kona side of the island.

    Ren2019-08-26T00:00:00Z

    Travel across the wooden bridge to my lovely plantation home. My home has classic character with high ceilings and lots of light. It is on Reeds Island, a historic and beautiful neighborhood surrounded by a river on one side and stream on the other. Walking distance to downtown Hilo. Restaurants, Galleries, Farmers market and more. Very close to Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots. A very special area to enjoy..
    The room comes with towels, closet room and extra pillows for the full size bed. It has black out window shades for those bright mornings, and a ceiling fan for those warm nights, shared bath with owner
    Reeds Island is one of two premier neighborhoods, with beautiful palms and stately homes. My home sits next to a home that was built for Princess Kaiulani"s aunt and she visited there often. The classic Shipman House is here as well.
  • We really enjoyed our stay with Marlene shes accommodating and very nice. I enjoyed our time at Marlene's and the breakfast is included

    Robert2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Marlene was amazing. Her house is beautiful and the location on Reed Island is very unique and convenient. It’s only a few minutes to old town Hilo and Rainbow falls are around the corner as well. I’d definitely stay with her again.

    Sandra2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Marlene is one of the nicest people I have met! She is a great hostess and her place was comfortable and conveniently located. I would stay here again anytime - and hope I will get that opportunity!

    Renae2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Marlene’s a really cool woman. If you have the chance to be her guest, chat her up and you’ll surely have a few laughs. Not a lot of guests cook, but she was supportive of us cooking dinner. The pictures don’t express the beautiful sounds and smells you’ll experience, not to mention it’s tucked back with a perfect back patio (screened off so no bugs). Great value too.

    Brian2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for an oasis of peace and calm in a gorgeous historic setting...look no further! Marlene is a wonderful person and a superb host too. She makes her house feels like home for her guests, and we were very sad to leave. The property is only a short walk to the shops and restaurants of downtown Hilo, but seems to be tucked away in the tropical forest. Breakfasts on the back porch overlooking the creek were a definite highlight and we had no trouble falling right to sleep on the comfy bed. I cannot recommend this place enough! Thank you, Marlene!! -Steve (and Corey)

    Steavan2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay here! We were treated to a lovely warm welcome, gorgeous breakfast, terrific local touring tips and a friendly and lively chat in the evenings. The house is in a great location with Hilo's highlights easily accessible. This truly is a home away from home.

    Donna2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

    Christian2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Marlene welcomed us sincerely and was a kind and generous host. She provided a lovely breakfast of coffee, muffins and fruit. Papaya, banana and rambutan! The house was beautifully decorated and the bed was comfortable. I only wish we could stay longer! Location is excellent for exploring Hilo and environs. We visited Rainbow Falls- only 5 min away. Highly recommend staying with Marlene

    Please NOTE: This room only accommodates 1 guest. The listing says there are 2 beds because it is a bunk bed. The room itself is small so it's for 1 person.

  • Shawn's place was great! It is in an excellent location, right in the heart of Hilo. There was plenty of parking, the place was very clean, easy self-check-in and the breakfast waiting for you in the fridge every morning was a nice touch. The room was just the right size and had everything I needed. Great place and would definitely stay again!

  • Super clean and good location.Staffs were very nice and kind.I had very good time to stay.I enjoyed Hula lesson too.I definitely will stay there again! It was a very clean inn and a convenient place to go anywhere. As the name of the guest house was, I was staying at a Japanese inn and was very comfortable. The hula lesson was also fun. I want to go to stay again.

    Hilo, HI, United States

    Welcome to the beautiful Big Island of Hawai'i! Our cozy studio, Pacific Hideaway, is centrally located within the heart of Hilo Town and we are only one mile from Hilo Bay. Our private studio offers a full kitchen and bath, a queen size bed, and a twin pull out sofa bed. Relax, rest, and revive your soul.
    You will have access to the entire condo located on the second floor, where you can spend time on the lanai that overlooks the pool. Watch the sunsets and enjoy the sounds of the jungle and coqui frogs at night. We offer Wifi and a Roku Box so you can easily watch movies or YouTube videos. We also provide all linens, including beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, and a cooler for your island excursions. There are laundry facilities just down the hall, and the pool just steps away.
    Pacific Hideaway is close to the Hilo farmers market. It is open 7 days a week, with Wednesday and Saturday being the BIG MARKET DAY where you can get exotic fruits and fresh homegrown veggies. If you are looking to see some beautiful waterfalls here on the island, Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots are only a short 5 miles away. 'Akaka Falls, which is famous for its 400-foot cascade is a simple family-friendly hike that is surrounded by bamboo, ferns, and wild orchids. Enjoy the wonderful beach parks like Carlsmith and Richardsons where you can safely snorkel with the Honu, aka sea turtles, and colorful reef fish. If outdoor adventures are what you are seeking, descend into a lava tube at Kaumana Caves which are 7 minutes from the condo. Or, venture up the hill to Volcanoes National Park and hike the many trails that are carved into the lava fields. In May of 2018, Pele the goddess of fire and volcanoes created a brand new black sand beach here on the island. Reaching the beach takes you on a beautiful drive down "Red Road" and across the newly erupted lava.
  • A lovely modern, clean and stylish apartment with everything you could need for your stay. Lots of lovely touches around the place with a beautiful balcony for morning coffees. Would certainly stay here again, very central location.

    Jo2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

  • Tara’s place is clean and very close to the heart of Hilo. Parking is easy, as was check in process. Kitchen has everything one would need, and there’s even laundry detergent available. We would definitely stay here again.

    Rina2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Tara's apartment for 5 nights. It is located directly in Hilo and is therefore a great starting point to explore the island. The apartment is really very cozy, clean and equipped with everything you could need, even beach boards and a cool box with batteries for cool drinks on the beach. Everything went smoothly. We can highly recommend it.

    Christian2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Claire2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this little place. It was perfectly and centrally located to do all the things in and near Hilo. It was decorated so cute and cozy. The only thing I would mention is that you will hear the neighbors upstairs walking around as the flooring made sounds with movement. We enjoyed our stay, would go again!

    Gianni2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very sweet. The landlord opened the AC before we came. The inside is extremely clean and well decorated. You could find all your needs even including toothbrush, medical alcohol and bandage. We will come back if have a chance. Thank you Tara!

    Ryan2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Paul2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • So glad we chose to stay at Cody's place. The room was so stylish, super clean, and very comfortable. Sitting on the porch and looking at the lush view was lovely (one day we were treated to a full rainbow that ended in the front yard). Breakfast was tasty and fresh. Location is great to get into Hilo quickly, though Cody's place feels quiet and calm. We had a wonderful stay.

    Joanna2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Cody's place is beautiful, relaxing and perfectly located. Cody is attentive and laid back at the same time. We loved the waterfall, the breakfasts and the lush surroundings. Overall, one of our best Airbnb experiences!

  • Cody and Nicole were great, very informative and knowledge about the area and things to see/do. The breakfast was amazing, fresh fruits and breads, waffles, pastries... A great way to start the day. Would stay there again!

    Jessica2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea helped us a lot! We had 2 different tours, so we weren't sure that we could check-in during the designed time. However, Andrea was thoughtful and kindness to responded. We appreciated her great help. My husband and I woke up with a stunning ocean view, and we sat on the terrace to watch it.

    Daphne2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Check in was very easy and the location and view was fantastic. There was only Dr Bronners in the shower so I'd recommend bringing your own shampoo and conditioner.

    Darcy2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Good place for two people to explore Hilo.

    Christopher2020-01-09T00:00:00Z

  • I had an absolutely lovey stay at the Bungalow and I would highly recommend it to any couples or solo travelers visiting the Big Island. There is plenty of room for luggage, a chair right by the front door to sit on to remove soiled shoes, a fabulously comfy bed, spacious kitchenette and charming little bathroom. There are windows on all 4 walls for a cross-breeze but still enough privacy to feel comfortable walking around in the space. Outside, there is a wild avocado trees and plenty of parking. Downtown Hilo is just a short 4 block walkaway with restaurants and shopping. I am so thankful that I found this little spot to call home on my travels!

    Dave & Carleen2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely space that I would highly recommend to anyone staying in Hilo - we were in a central location and the room was spacious and connected to a private bathroom.

  • This was a great place to stay - quiet location, great value, nice kitchen and common areas. The walls are a little thin, so there isn't a lot of privacy, but it's to be expected in a house such as this. If you want a great value, incredible host, and convenient location, this place is for you.

    Sam (永善)2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • The master bedroom was clean and comfortable. Ashley was available by phone and responded to all our queries on the day. The kitchen was well equipped.
