    Located at 1400' elevation in the lush foothills above Hilo, just 15 min from downtown, this cloud forest home sits on 3 acres of manicured land amongst 8 different varieties of Bamboo, coffee, avocado, cacao, bananas and guava trees, and passion fruit, all for your eating pleasure. Relax on the spacious lanais in this quiet setting among numerous birds such as Kauai Cardinals, Saffron and Java finches. Weather permitting, there are peekaboo views of the (distant) ocean and Mauna Kea. At night a few coquis (tree frogs) will serenade you to sleep.

    In this historic Hilo neighborhood, the large 3+ acre lots create a real sense of quiet, space and relaxation.

    As you enter Bamboo Retreat you will find high ceilings and lots of natural light in the open concept living, dining and kitchen area. The dining/kitchen area is fully set up for all types of cooks and new appliances (including a gas stove) help to get the job done. The floors are hardwood Eucalyptus Robusta and run throughout the house.

    The house is large enough for families but still cozy enough for couples. The master bedroom has a king bed, walk- in closet, and its own private bathroom with a beautiful custom open designed rock shower and deep tub. The master also features a separate private lanai with a futon and pillows where you can relax, enjoy the garden views and listen to the bamboo and the birds .

    The other 2 bedrooms, just down the hall, share a bathroom with a tub/shower. Each guest room is equipped with desk, dresser, and plenty of closet space and comfortable full size beds. Along with the beds, there is also a full size inflatable air mattress (with bedding) that can go anywhere in the spacious house.

    For entertainment there is WiFi and a flat screen television with satellite cable. The dining area can seat six along with a breakfast bar.

    The property has a covered outside picnic area with BBQ, smoker and supplies to enjoy a meal. Downtown Hilo is a short 10-15 minute drive away where you have a large selection of international food options, shops and the world famous Hilo Farmer's Market (best on Wednesday and Saturday). Snorkel gear, beach towels and fishing poles are provided should you want to swim and enjoy our black sand beaches from Coconut Island to Richardson Beach Park. If you're ...

    This house truly represents why Hilo is such a great place. Linda was a gracious host and she takes great care to make sure your stay is wonderful. Fresh flowers and fruits welcomed us. The rooms and living area are immaculate and it made a great impression on my entire family. The amenities, the kitchen utensils and resources allowed us to take advantage of this house and make all of our meals in the comfort just like being at home. I would recommend this to any family, friends, who are looking for a Hilo getaway. Waiakea Uka is a great location not too far from Hilo town and the volcano Highly recommend this property!!!

    A very cute and well amenitized house that great for singles and couples that want to get away. Older kids are ok too but not the best for younger kids. The host of available if you need help (and we did) but otherwise let’s you keep to yourself.

    The Bamboo retreat is located on beautiful grounds and my family enjoyed gazing at the lovely scenery from the many windows or the lanai and walking around the property as well. The star gazing and the sound of the coqis at night are part of our wonderful memories of our stay. The owner, Linda provided so many thoughtful amenities on the inside as well including bottled water, coffee, cream and vanilla sugar. Our daughter is in grad school in Hilo and we would happily stay at the Bamboo Retreat on our next visit!
