    Welcome to our Treehouse at Hakalau! The only way to stay closer to the ocean would be in a boat. Sit back and watch the cruise ships slowly pass by knowing that the passengers aboard are truly envying your incredible accommodations. This quaint and unassuming second story home offers a nearly 180 degree view of the mighty Pacific ocean where you can relax and watch whales as they suddenly breach the blue water, spinner dolphins playfully chase a passing fishing vessel and the rising sun as it welcomes you to an amazing array of morning colors.

    Please watch our YouTube video by searching Salt Water Hawaii The Treehouse at Hakalau!

    Need more room? You can also rent the neighboring Cliffs at Hakalau - ask us if it is available for your dates. Sleeps six.

    Immediately as you enter the home your attention is drawn to the vast ocean front windows and sliding glass doors that lead out to the huge deck. Here you can spend endless hours enjoying the cool breezes from the ocean, sipping on a morning cup of coffee or watching spinner dolphins and whales playfully swim by. During whale season, there may even be nights when you can hear the whales singing. The windows have blackout curtains to shade the interior and cool the house during peak sunshine hours.

    The home features hardwood flooring and is well furnished with two spacious bedrooms. Both bedrooms offer comfortable queen beds and a nice size closet to store your belongings. The kitchen is immediately off of the living area with equally incredible ocean views. The kitchen comes furnished with a built-in range, full size refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster as well as pots, pans, dishes and other cooking utensils. The bathroom contains a large tub/shower combination, toilet, and spacious vanity. The ample windows in this home do a great job of allowing the comfortable trade breezes to flow throughout the home. Like the majority of homes in Hawai'i, we do not have air conditioning. We maintain a simple mindset in that when we get hot we open the windows and turn on the fan. When we get cold, we close the windows and put on socks :)

    We are near Highway 19, 15 minutes to Hilo and only 20 minutes to the Airport.

    Hilo is known for its warm aloha spirit, relaxed lifestyle, unique shops, art galleries and restaurants with local regional cuisine. Local attractions include Lyman Museum, East Hawaii Cultural Center, historic Palace Theatre, Pacific Tsunami Museum, Imiloa ...

    Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The treehouse stay was overall a pleasant experience.Was only able to enjoy the lanai and view one day as it rained the others. Could you please control the weather next time. Found a nice gecko in the living room. Put him outside. Check the front gate as it did not close completely. Dave

    The treehouse was magical! At the end of a cul-de-sac, gated we were in our own little world. Had multiple whales breaching and playing right off our lani. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on the Hilo side of the island. Central for all the sightseeing places we wanted to visit. Home came equipped with everything we needed and more. We will definitely be returning!! Mahalo!!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a great stay at the Treehouse it was as beautiful in person as it is in the photos. The sunrises were spectacular, the sounds of the ocean waves were relaxing while sitting on the deck. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need. But the restaurants in Hilo are pretty good.

    We had a terrific time staying here! We loved watching the birds, plants, geckos, stars, milky way, and waves. House was quiet, clean, and comfortable. There's lots to do within a short drive and the owners have a lot of great suggestions. Hakalau Beach Park is a short walk away(you do have to go up and down a slightly steep trail). Also close to Akaka falls and the fantastic Hawai'i tropical bioreserve and garden. Yes, the Island of Hawaii has bugs, but here they are very manageable, and not the kind that bite(and for some of us bug bites can be a problem). The owners have left some specific practical tips for how to make the bugs even easier to manage.

    We really loved this place. Such a beautiful and quiet location. You could hear the ocean and lots of birds. It was lovely. However, the sun shines in the two sliding glass doors and it’s above a parking area. It got really warm. Well, I’d even say hot. Sweating hot. We ended up getting another room elsewhere for one night because it was so hot. It really wouldn’t cost that much to add a window unit or portable ac unit. Or at least have blinds or curtains over those glass doors. It really needs it to be comfortable. Otherwise, it was nice and had everything else one might need.
