Pair the mystique of a tropical Hawaiian forest with an impeccably cared for home and you'll have Lava Rock Retreat! Catered to the traveler who wants a private oasis but desires the convenience of a central location. Lava Rock Retreat is in a quiet Hilo neighborhood with close driving access to visit dashing waterfalls, sea turtle dotted ocean parks, vibrant botanical gardens, and volcanic wonders. The architecture is reminiscent of mid-century modern design highlighting natural surroundings. We welcome you to enjoy Lava Rock Retreat, Hawaii!

As you enter Lava Rock Retreat you're greeted by walls of picture windows with verdant views of our tropical forest. The main living area boasts a soaring ceiling, cool concrete floors, and hi-tech smart home functions. Delight in three modes of coffee making from pedestrian (12-cup drip maker) to aficionado (espresso and Nespresso makers). The kitchen is fully stocked for cooks of all levels and includes touch-sensor faucets, a view-panel refrigerator, and every small appliance you may desire. Dine at the copper fronted bar or the dining table. The living area has a large screen Smart TV and sectional sofa (you may want to spend more time here than you imagine!). The whole house is geared with free high speed Wi-Fi internet and Alexa Smart home features.

The home sleeps up to 4 guests and is recommended for adults and older children only. Our outside areas are built around the natural pahoehoe flow of ancient lava with uneven, rocky grounds.

Outdoors you'll marvel at our lush tropical flora as you stroll through paths behind the house. The large hot tub and copper outdoor shower area also feature a lava rock privacy wall.

"Perfect retreat
This place has everything you need and then some. Perfect place to stay and explore Hawaii or just stay in the renal all day and relax "
Dec 31, 2023 - James T., N/A, CO

This home is one of the most beautiful homes I’ve ever seen! Words and photos barely do it justice. The floor-to-ceiling wall of windows that looks out over the lush jungle took my breath away. AND all those windows slide open (with sturdy screens behind them) to make you feel like you are living in the landscape. Many of the walls are faced with natural lava rock, which enhances that feeling. The super cool lighting and smart home features play so nicely against the nature-forward aspects of the home. It’s like nothing I’ve seen in a vacation rental before - and I’ve stayed in a lot of them. Other highlights include the huuuuuuuge hot tub and the chef’s kitchen. Cooking is one of my passions and this kitchen had everything I needed and so much more. The beds - and all the furnishings - are super comfy. The house feels very secluded, but it’s only a few minutes from downtown Hilo.We had a couple minor questions, but our on-island contact answered them quickly. I guess it’s a brand new rental so I was lucky enough to get in at the beginning. Book it now because I’m sure it will be full up soon! I wanted to stay here forever. "
