Located in a quiet neighborhood right outside of downtown Hilo, looking over Hilo Bay, and easy access to Volcano national park (31 miles), Akaka Falls (13 miles), Honoka'a (39 miles), Kalapana (30miles).

The space


Great value for a family or group trip. Children under 16 years old won't be charged as extra persons if it's a family. We can lend children's toys or books to entertain, or beach items like sand toys and an umbrella.
The room has partial ocean view from the living room window, from which you may see a whale's spouting right outside of the Hilo Bay during the whale season.
Bedroom A is adjacent to the bathroom, so users of bedroom B must go through bedroom A to reach the bathroom. Has a tiny kitchenette space with microwave and an single electric stove, with basic pots and pans, enough for cooking light meal. Won't work for someone who needs full kitchen to cook.
We, the owner family live upstairs and to be honest, it can be sometimes noisy with two boys there and active.
This unit is next to our monthly rental, in which quiet college students live.
Also, since we are in tropical climate, you may see geckos and other little creatures in the room. As long as you don't care about them, they do no harm to us.
We believe that our price is reasonable for what we offer, nothing luxurious, just a plain pleasant space.

WE OFFER "KALAPANA LAVA EVENING", which you can spend an evening at our little weekend getaway house on the lava field in Kalapana, after your lava viewing hike or just for an evening there.
We can set up a BBQ there and let you take a outdoor bath under the epic starfull sky, which we GUARANTEE to be your life time experience. PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR DETAIL.

Amazing spot! Meg is absolutely wonderful, the house is so cozy, and perfect for small meals & relaxing. Extremely close to amenities & downtown Hilo, yet very quiet at all times- night & day! I HIGHLY recommend this AirBnb!

Meg's place is very spacious, well equipped and clean. Meg is a very responsive host and we are more than pleased with our stay there! The living room and kitchen area allows you to have coffee while enjoying the morning sun. A few minutes from downtown, it's a great location to discover the bug islands from! We would definitely rent it again!

We feel like we lucked out making this our home base as we explored Hilo. Meg was quick to provide some toys and books for our toddler and was full of helpful advice. The suite was clean, well-stocked with beach towels and sand toys and the little kitchenette had everything we needed. I would stay here again for sure.

Meg's place was really comfortable and cozy. We had a last minuets weekend gateway from Kona side with kids and my mom who is visiting from Japan. Meg was really responsive and accommodating. It is really close to town, but yet really quiet and peaceful. Sunrise in the morning living room window was extraordinarily. There was very thoughtful fruits basket and coffee, we had a comfortable stay at her place. We will come back! Mahalo

I'm a mother of two boys and I love to practice yoga, be outdoor, and reading good books. We moved to Hilo in 2010 and have been so grateful to be where we are. I've backpacked alone to India, Thailand, China, Korea, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Spain, France, Italy, Great Britain and Germany in the past. India and Mexico are the top two of the places I want to visit again. You can tell that I love traveling but now with two restless boys, I'd rather stay home and host people from different places. Meeting new people were the main thing I enjoyed in traveling and so I look forward to hosting and sharing the beauty of this island.
