Stand in Awe at Pele’s Fire
Moving east and south from Hilo, you reach the charming community of Puna, the fastest growing district on the island. This quaint town is convenient to the many attractions and other districts of the island, and is a popular location for our guests. Just past Puna lies Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. Here you can peer into an active caldera, learn the natural history of the islands, watch lava flow into the ocean, and stroll through long dormant lava tubes in the middle of exotic rainforests protected in the volcanic crater. The steam rising from vents in the earth cast an otherworldly feel across this area and provide amazing photo opportunities. Come check out our Big Island vacation homes!
Choose Big Island Vacation Homes
Across the mountains from Hilo, the leeward side of the island is home to barren, yet beautiful lava fields, the bustling town of Kona, and some of the most ruggedly beautiful landscapes you have ever seen. If you choose one of our fabulous rental properties here, you will have access to world-class golf, resorts with fine dining and shopping, exciting ocean adventures with whales and manta rays, and beautiful hikes to secluded beaches. Snorkel the tranquil waters of Kealakekua Bay, a marine preserve home to dolphins and the site of Captain Cook’s arrival to Hawai‘i in 1779, or take a day and visit the summit and observatories on Mauna Kea. A scenic drive north along the coast is always worthwhile, capped with a visit to the ranching town of Waimea or the beautiful valleys and black sand beaches of the Kohola Coast. You will find long sunny days and some of the island’s most beautiful white sand beaches along the island’s west coast. No matter where you choose to stay on the Big Island, you will find the vacation of a lifetime.
