“We're generally not big on superlatives, but cannot write an honest review of Kaeo's and Karl's Eco Hale without employing a few. Picture yourself on the lanai in a romantic hut, in the heart of a garden-like rain forest, enjoying a breakfast of various fresh fruit (some of which you can pick within a few feet), homemade cranberry-walnut bread, freshly ground locally grown coffee, listening to the tropical birds (and, of course, the Coqui) with dappled sunshine lighting up the scene. It's difficult if not impossible to come up with a better start to a day. Now envision yourself on the same lanai as evening approaches, sipping wine and snacking on (or dining, we chose to bring dinner "home" most nights to have more time to soak up the peace), then filling the furo with warm water and climbing in for a soul soothing soak. From the warmest of welcomes by Kaeo, to the delicious pupu she provided our first evening, to her little touches in decorating both amazing and authentic, it is an extraordinary experience in a perfect location to explore the island. Kaeo is one of the sweetest and most thoughtful souls we have had the privilege to meet. We've already agreed that we'll return for a third visit with her and Eco Hale.”
Our Tiny Tropical Treehouse is a very special space full of creativity and beauty.

It is ideal for couples and individuals looking for a private retreat nestled away in the jungle. Adventurers, relaxers, writers, and artists will enjoy staying here, a mere 18 mi from all Volcano National Park has to offer and 20 mi from downtown Hilo.
“My boyfriend and I were blessed to find Melissa and Catherine’s amazing treehouse on Airbnb for our two week quarantine and we loved every minute of our full forest immersion. At sunset we would sit on the deck and slide down the zip line, the kitchen was fully equipped to create any meal you can think of and the outdoor shower was surrounded by beautiful orchids and lush greenery, we would definitely recommend this spot for a few days to feel the real Hawaii vibes.”
The house has a snug, country feel that is designed by Marissa Reyes. Share intimate, homemade dinners under contemporary wood and glass pendant lights, then cozy up on the comfy gray couches in front of a movie at this tranquil retreat.

“It is a house so clean once. Even if you walk around the floor for an hour, your feet are clean. The bed was so comfortable that I pulled myself to sleep. There was a washing machine and dryer in the garage so it was safe and quiet to wash late at night. Every bathroom has a dryer and good water pressure. He also put a lot of towels and blankets. The kitchen was equipped with various condiments, so it was convenient to eat food. I drunk the food on the left side of the sink where the guest should not add food. The garage and front door of the house were sent to the electronic door lock before the departure so that the password could be used conveniently. It was such a nice house that I missed the short schedule of Big Island. You'll feel 200% of how good Simon is when he arrives. I missed Simon's house as soon as I stayed at the next hotel, the Hilton The Grand Islander, Oahu. If you're looking for accommodation on the Hilo Volcano side, choose Simon's Home. You will be satisfied. Aloha Simon, you are the perfect host. Your house is perfect, too. Thank you.”
