Experience living like a local in a Hawaiian plantation cottage built in the mid-1900s during the days of sugar caning in Hawaii, and now lavishly re-imagined for the utmost in island comfort. Hale Ilio Himeni at Howling Dog Guest House sits on the lush green slopes of Mauna Kea at a cool 1400ft elevation making this a perfect blend of blue and green. Views of Mauna Kea summit, the green valley down past Hilo, and out over the eastern volcanic rift all the way to the blue ocean horizon.

Come enjoy a wonderful sunrise bringing warm breezes, forest rain and promises of yet another day of island adventure. Stroll in the garden and pick some ripening fruit. Nap in the hammock among the bird song. Play a family game on the lawn or grab some gear and head down the hill to Honoli’i Beach.

There are plenty of adventures to be had within a short distance. Your island homebase is centrally located only a few miles to local Hilo hot spots and attractions. Each direction offers a different climate and various things to see and explore. West is straight down the hill to the beaches of Hilo. You can drive South through Pahoa to the Kalapana lava flow or Volcano National Park at Kilauea. A short trip North will bring you to the waterfalls and eco fun on the Hamakua Coast. Or grab your coats and go East climbing to 14,000 feet elevation at the chilly Mauna Kea summit!

Hale Ilio Himeni is only 5 miles from downtown Hilo, but feels like another place in time. The temperatures at this elevation are 60-85°F and we have frequent rain showers. It is rarely hot enough for A/C, and during the winter months you may want an extra blanket at night! Perfect weather to enjoy cool nights for snuggling and warm days for island fun.

Hale Ilio Himeni offers plush sleeping arrangements for up to 8 guests. The two bedroom suites are perfectly situated for 2 couples or a family. For complete description of the cottage please visit our Accommodations page on the HowlingDogGuestHouse website or contact us directly for details.
