Located in a natural setting, this peaceful retreat offers the sounds and trade winds of the nearby ocean as well as the proximity to the beauty of some of the Big Island's more beautiful attractions. Among these, of course, are the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the two volcano mountains, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, all of which offer unique and unforgettable experiences. Adventures in hiking and biking abound. The drive to Volcanoes Nat'l Park is quite lovely with orchid nurseries along the way. The small village of Volcano is also worth exploring for it's art galleries. Closer by, five minutes away, is the rugged volcanic coastline which offers both beautiful seaside walks as well as seasonal whale-watching. Also, the Puna District offers a beautiful and scenic tour of this area's pristine coastline. Among the features of this tour are: the Petrified Forest State Park, the tide pools at Kapoho with it's ideal snorkeling, and the warm pools at Alahanui Park. Further along is the Isaac Hale County Park for surfing, snorkeling and diving. At the end of this drive is Kalapana which displays one of the area's most recent volcano flows. The nearby, charming village of Pahoa offers a quaint glimpse of life into the past. Further north is the town of Hilo with it's own old-world charm, it's bay and it's good variety of dining establishments. Going up the beautiful and scenic Hamakua coast, are the Akaka Falls State Park and the Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Gardens, both of which offer a beautiful and unique experience of the Big Island. Please note: a portable air conditioner is available upon request. Please let us know either prior to, or after your arrival to make this available for your convenience.

When you rent a timeshare or room in someone's home, you sometimes you feel like you’re couch surfing at a stranger’s. Not at Sandra’s Vacation Retreat. From the bed to the furniture to the kitchenette utensils, everything is new and high quality. The studio is...More
