    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    Although it is right in the center of Hilo, 'The Lotus' vacation cottage is set in an old, established garden walled on all sides. 'The Lotus' is hidden from the outside world in a garden filled with tropical flowers and plants. There is the sense of being in a secret garden and yet only a few paces from excellent restaurants, live music venues, stores and the Farmer's Market - all in Downtown Hilo.

    This rental is 'perfect' for those looking for somewhere with just the basics plus a whole lot of tropical romance and beauty. This cottage makes a sweet retreat for a couple and also can be rented as a three bedroom for a larger sized group. The Lotus is a refurbished traditional Hawaii-style 'Cane house’ built in the days of Hawaii's Sugar Cane Plantati...

The place is very convenient, with a few restaurants within a block radius, a grocery store across the street, a farmers market a block away and all of downtown within walking distance.

Peaceful, airy, colorful rooms in a lush garden setting. Hard to imagine a better place to stay in Hilo. The shower was outdoors and felt rustic, but was very comfortable given the climate. Megan was extremely friendly and helped me find a ride from the airport with another guest. more

I loved the ability to walk to the beach and all the local happenings downtown as well as close access to the farmer's market and grocery store. I felt safe and enjoyed the very clean and colorful... more
