About Hilo

Located on the eastern side of Big Island, Hilo, Hawaii is a fabulous destination for families. From the moment the plane touches down at Hilo International Airport travelers will notice and appreciate the natural beauty and lush landscape that is expected of the Hawaiian Islands. Hilo vacation rentals offer ultimate comfort and convenient access to this picturesque vacation destination.


Before booking one of the many Hilo vacation rentals in the area, it is important to consider the weather conditions as you plan to visit. Hilo features a tropical rainforest climate with relatively warm temperatures in the mid-70s to low-80s throughout the year. While you can rely on the temperature being relatively comfortable at any time of year, it’s the amount of rain you might experience that can be unpredictable. Hilo is the fourth wettest city in the United States and one of the wettest in the world with between 130 and 200 inches of rain annually. Pack an umbrella for your trip here and plan to see rain during at least one of the days you’re visiting.

The gardens offer a tranquil setting that is perfect for strolling or picnicking and a footbridge in the park connects the garden to Coconut Island Park.

Of course, the beautiful beaches and sparkling waters of Hilo are the main allure to the area.
