We are proud to offer hammock cabanas which are a unique luxurious form of amenity-rich camping (often called glamping). You don’t need bring all of your bulky camping gear on the airplane in order to experience the best camping in the United States.

Each cabana is screened in for comfort allowing the tropical breezes to flow through and each has closeable rain shield curtains to keep the wind and water out when necessary. They each include two large adjustable hammocks which allow for either flat or cradled sleeping. The hammocks can each hold up to two people (up to 450 lbs or 204 kg) so guests may choose to either sleep together or separately. Also inside, there is a solar powered overhead light with pull cord and a large cooler to store your cold food and drinks with an ice block (sold separately nearby). Towels, blankets, and pillows are included. Don’t waste your Hawaiian vacation cooped up in a hotel room. Come enjoy the real Hawaii, where the gentle breeze and tree frogs will lull you to sleep each night.

Glampers have access to our open air full bathroom with running water and a stunning rainfall shower (located at the main house). They also have access to our covered outdoor kitchen with grills, a sink, prep space, dining area, dishes, cups, silverware, and cookware (also located at the main house).

What a beautiful place to stay! They've thought of so many little details and it was definitely more luxurious than typical camping. It was especially nice to have the kitchen, common room and WIFI to use in the evenings.
We loved the upstairs open-air shower - such amazing views!
The only downer was that we were unlucky with the weather, having lots of heavy rain and wind in the night. My boyfriend has earplugs and managed to sleep well, but I found the rain against the plastic roof to be super noisy, plus I found sleeping in the hammock a little awkward, so it was probably the worst nights sleep of my trip - mostly thanks to mother nature!

This was a great place to stay. The Cabanas and hammocks are comfortable and well equipped. There is full access to a kitchen and food storage. The setting is spectacular. Hard to imagine a better place to spend some time.

We stayed in a cabana for 2 nights as a couple. Didn't really know what to expect as I've never slept in a hammock before. The cabanas are cute and very clean. You have curtains to feel private at night. I slept very well both night, just remember it rains a lot in Hilo so bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper
The shared areas were very nice, well maintained and well equiped
We really enjoyed our stay and wish we could have stayed a little bit longer :)
