The cabin was wonderful. It’s surrounded by a rainforest and nearby waterfall which gives you the ultimate sounds of nature. The cabin is equipped with essentials and is the unique experience you’re looking for.

Wow! What an amazing spot! This cabin is close to Hilo, has all the amenities you could want but makes you feel like you're in the middle of the jungle! The cabin was clean and provided us with everything we needed. It was so relaxing hearing the sounds of running water and creatures of the rain forest. Water levels were high so we didn't get to enjoy the nearby waterfall and swimming hole but it looked lovely!
