Photos and Description of this holiday studio in Hilo - Rain Forest Hideaway

Studio/1 Bath Perfect Getaway For 2~Five Minute Walk To Oceanfront

Here is a little gem, set in the charming and historical Hilo beach neighborhood of Keaukaha, that feels like the old Hawaii. Studio bedroom with full bath and brand new private lanai. Property is across the street from the ocean. Cozy room with comfy queen bed, HDTV, full HD cable and free high speed WiFi. Kitchenette including small refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. Clean, relaxing, and affordable!

Originally built as an artist studio, the 'Ohana is separate from the main house. It's very private, with lots of windows, all facing the rain forest.

• Walking distance to ocean and Hilo's best beach parks for snorkeling, swimming, tide pools, sea turtles, kayaking and whale watching in winter

• Beautiful rainforest/garden setting and views. It feels like you are in a tree house

• Small but comfy, approximately 250 square feet

• Small full bath (shower, sink, toilet)

• Standing/oscillating fan

• Tastefully decorated

• Large comfy new queen bed, 100% cotton sheets

• 40 minutes to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park & just 10 minutes to downtown Hilo

• Beach gear available for use: towels, chairs, mats, boogie board

• Sunny part of Hilo

• *Brand new private deck/lanai attached to Ohana*

It is a bit rustic, but with a great bed, HDTV and free WiFi, it feels like luxury camping. Coqui frogs will sing you to sleep each night.

Just a short walk to the ocean. There are beach parks within 5 minutes of this property including Carlsmith Beach Park, Leleiwi Beach Park and the popular Richardson's Beach Park with black sand.

Hilo Town is home to one of the best Farmer's Markets in Hawai'i and some of the best restaurants around. Yummy dining options, shopping, gateway to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, orchid orchards, waterfalls, rainforest, golf, zip lining, hiking, and so much more!

We are happy to share our knowledge about where to go and what to do while on the Big Island.

About Cathy and Jeff Dale

Cathy and Jeff Dale love the Big Island and are excited to share this wondrous place with you. Born and raised in Hilo, Cathy has returned to live here after 25 years in Northern California. Jeff fell in love with Hawaii on the first of many visits from California and is fulfilling a life long dream to live here full-time.

Cathy and Jeff Dale purchased this studio in 2013

Why Cathy and Jeff Dale chose Hilo District

Enjoy a piece of Hawai'i in a special corner of the Big Island of Hawai'i without breaking the bank. We love our old style island home and are excited to share it with others wanting to experience the beauty of the Big Island.

What makes this studio unique

This home was built in 1938 by Cathy's grandparents. The 'Ohana was originally built as an artists studio. The studio is part of a 1 acre property with extensive beautiful landscaping including fruit trees, tropical plants and flowers. We hope you will visit our little piece of paradise.

Had a great stay

  • 5 of 5

Overall great experience. This place had everything you need and is conveniently located for any adventures on the "wet" side of the island. By the way we got lucky I guess since it was mostly sunny during our entire visit! We enjoyed experiencing the jungle like surroundings while also being close to shops and things if we needed anything. The ocean is also just a short walk away with great snorkeling!

Wonderful stay in lovely Hilo Town!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay!!! Truly like sleeping in a Rainforest. Located right across the street and walking distance to some of the best beaches in Hilo, this studio is well appointed, clean and surprisingly spacious. It had everything we needed. We really appreciated the short 30-40 minute drive back after spending the day at Volcano National Park. Great base for exploring all that this side of the Big Island has to offer. The owners Cathy and Jeff are fantastic hosts. We highly recommend this as a place to stay, and hope that it will be available for our next visit to Hilo. Mahalo Cathy and Jeff!

Very welcoming!! Very quaint!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to stay here at the studio while visiting Hawaii. Cathy was very nice hostess, with many homey touches - coffee, juice, and use of many water sport items.

Good to know: no air conditioning, very loud frogs all night.

But still very comfortable and a convenient location in Hilo.

We would stay here again.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Cathy was a great host and her place is just as pictured. The place was very clean. I appreciated that lots of the items like towels and sheets were white. The bed was comfortable. There are loud frogs at night but my husband and I did not mind. Earplugs were provided in the bathroom without asking. Goodies were also provided which was much appreciated. The decor and ambiance surrounding the house was just what we were looking for. We highly recommend.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific little studio in a quiet residential neighborhood. Perfect size for two people. Very clean and neat. Easy to find on a major street. Jeff and Cathy are extremely hospitable and the studio had everything we needed: frig, microwave, dishes and utensils, extra towels, blanket, pillows. It's within walking distance to one picturesque black sand beach and short drives to others. A handy convenience store/coffee shop is also just a short drive away as are several restaurants,downtown Hilo, and the airport. The setting is very tropical with beautiful flowers and trees on the property. The coqui frogs are a constant nighttime presence, but we didn't find their song to be intrusive and kept the windows open all night. This property is a perfect home base for exploring the Hilo vicinity,Volcanos National Park, and the Waipio Valley/Waimea areas. Highly recommended!
