Puna Rainforest Retreat
A Retreat from the Busy Everyday World

Puna Rainforest Retreat


Aloha, we have vacation rentals for a one-night stay or longer or for a group retreat. We are the former owners of award-winning Waterfalls Inn Bed & Breakfast in Hilo, Hawaii, and we now offer vacation rentals in the Puna Forest Reserve, just three miles outside of Pahoa towards Kalapana. We have free wifi on our property, suitable for checking email. If you need a high-speed connection, there is an internet cafe in Pahoa.


Our four vacation rental cottages are suitable for overnight, weekly or monthly stays. Our rates start at $60/night for single or double occupancy (extra persons are $10/night extra) plus a one-time cleaning fee of $40 for 7 days or more stays. The nightly rate is $70 for 1-6 nights, plus tax and cleaning fee. We have two suite cottages (Yellow Hibiscus and Lavender Orchid) that have two rooms, a kitchenette, and a full bath. We have two studio cottages (Green Bamboo and Casa Azul) that are one large room and come with full kitchens and full baths.



Our cottages have full baths and kitchen counters with granite countertops, luxury pillowtop beds with 400 thread count cotton sheets, and a tropical decor will make your stay very enjoyable. The cottages all have a coffee pot, blender, toaster, pots and pans, dishes and basic kitchen necessities. The stars at night are truly amazing, and the sunrise over the ocean will certainly delight you. You will be serenaded at night by frogs and by birds during the day.


We are centrally located in Puna near Pahoa Village (3 miles), Lava Tree State Park (4 miles), Ahalanui Beach Park (8 miles), Pohoiki Bay Park, Issac Hale Beach Park, Kalapana and the new black sand beach. Visit Uncle Robert's farmers' market on Wednesday nights, Makuu Farmers' Market on Sundays, and Hilo Farmers' Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Only 30 miles to Hilo, 40 miles to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and 50 miles to Mauna Kea Observatory.
