As a full-time host and tour guide, I take pride is giving people the best experiences possible while on island! Our properties are cozy and provide everything you will need being your home away from home while on vacation! Learn more about this land: The ultimate local experience while providing comforts to make your stay enjoyable. Live in traditional Hawaiian style homes! For guests unfamiliar with the Big Island, it is not like the other islands people travel to. If Oahu is more Americanized, the Big Island is still more of a Polynesian Island. Our property allows guests to enjoy a genuine local experience. The cabins have power and endless hot water. All water on property is rainwater harvested from our roof! At night your ears will be greeted by the forest with sounds of coqui frogs. Many people love them 🐸 Please search for Bathing Suits and Rain Boots on YouTube to find a video of what our property sounds like at night. Our channel also features videos of tours we offer. More to be uploaded, check back often! Our tours include off the beaten path adventures ranging from sunrises and geothermal Kings baths, to prawn hunting to hikes that lead to waterfalls! They are all local gems that you will not find online or offered by any other tour guide agency. We are updating our ig @bathingsuitsandrainboots regularly with footage from adventures as well! Beach gear such as chairs, boogie boards and snorkel gear is also available. There is a detailed welcome packet with a variety of mostly free but some paid must see/do activities on the island! There are a total of 4 cabins on the one acre lot. The owners are on property, other guests may or may not be here as well. There is a dog Valentine, two outdoor cats named Ghost and Tomi, and chickens/ducks. One cabin has a queen mattress, the other has a queen mattress and another queen air mattress available upon request. We rent both cabins out for larger groups. Jungle massages are available on site starting at $100 for the hour. Please note the main image capturing a lava cliff sunrise is not visible from the cabin. It is about a 30-40 minute drive from us 🌊 ☀️ 🌋 We are at 1880ft elevation so it can get chilly at night. Winters are also rainy season so if traveling to the Big Island in the winter, I suggest some light layers for warmth, a raincoat and rain boots.

Awesome spot in the jungle! Outdoor shower and toilet, but both very clean and private. Would recommend going to Hilo for food options.

Dawn is a heart of this place. She is more than welcoming and she is happy to share any tips for sightseeing. Perfect spot to stay when you are discovering volcano park. The pleads is designed in tiniest details, which is impressive. Bed is spacious and comfy, and we enjoyed the outside warm shower with a jungle view! Extras include the sweetest dog and two cats plus home picked eggs! The nature around the house is vivid, actually we saw there more Hawaiian species than in National Parks where they hide from people.

Unique Jungle Glamping Bungalow!
Dawn’s ocean themed Jungalow was so cute and more spacious than expected! Super comfy bed and lots of fun little artistic touches make this place memorable and unique. The outdoor shower with a jungle view was an awesome experience. Dawn was a super host- extremely kind, knowledgeable, and quick to respond! I would definitely recommend this place!! Be aware that the property is a bit of a drive off the main road and “off the grid”- kind of in the middle of nowhere but still close to Hilo and the volcano. This was no problem for us, because that is exactly what we wanted! Thanks Dawn for the incredible experience!

Stay, relax and hear the island
Dawn has a great property and she is very kind. I really enjoyed my Jungalow stay and the outdoor shower was awesome. The bed was comfortable, the large covered patio was amazing for relaxing while watching the rain and the kitchen was very cool…and free fresh eggs!

Dawn’s place exceeded my expectations. Driving there is definitely a journey on small country roads, especially in a downpour, but it was easy to find with instructions. Cabin was beautiful and cozy and the private shower/bathroom was so lovely! Hot water under ohia trees was a dream. Loved the big porch area to snack and chill after a long day of adventure. Shared kitchen was very clean and easy to use. Eating fresh eggs from the hens in the morning was lovely. Really friendly cats to hang with. Lovely environment to unwind and Dawn literally has everything you need (floaters, snorkel gear, robes, boat vests etc. for adventure, and all types of toiletries in case you forgot something). Appreciated the mini fridge, water and guide book in room. Felt very taken care of even if I didn’t have a chance to meet Dawn this time. Would definitely come back!

Incredible property!
This was an absolutely incredible property with a helpful host and super cool accommodations. Even with the rest of the property, your spot in the jungle feels very private. This place is an ideal, incredibly relaxing place to stay close to VNP! Wish we could have stayed longer!

Dawns cabin is beautiful! It was a great experience, being in the middle of the rainforest. I especially loved the private open air shower and sitting at the deck at night, listening to the forest sounds.

Dawn's space was deeply nourishing and enlivening. My friend and I enjoyed having our own little bungalow with an outdoor shower to be immersed in the jungle. The full kitchen accommodations were close by and surrounded by beautiful plants. 10/10 would book again!
