“Tropical Round House in Paradise"
I am on a return trip to Sharon's Tropical Round House, or as I like to call it the Jungle Treehouse. It is a wonderful get-away place. It is located in an area that makes it easy to get to most parts of the island and return to this beautiful house at night. It is close to Hilo, Volcano National Park, ocean access, and snorkeling. Great kitchen, so cook your own meals or pack your own sandwiches for a picnic. If you are a birder, as I am, just go out to the wrap around deck and watch for the Hawaiian Hawk. What a beauty! This is a very special house, well stocked, well cared for, and welcoming. Hope to return again sometime. Aloha!

“Life saving get-away into the rain forest”

We do a mother - daugther trip to Hawaii every year. Usually we stay in nice hotels right on the beach. This time we decided to do something different. We booked the Tropical Round House because it is away from the grid - and loved it. Coming from California I smiled when waking up to the sound of rain. The house is on the rainy side of the Island but most days it clears up or you just drive to a different location. This is Hawaii you always need to expect a little rain.
The house is thoughtfully furnished, there is TV and internet, but for the most part you will immediately unplug when you get there. The kitchen is A+ equipped with any tool a chef can ask for. You will need the kitchen because the local restaurants while OK didn't knock me off my feet and I like cooking. There is a great grocery store in town, the health food store we found a little dated and smelly.
The location of the house is hidden away and you will truly be in nature. There is a lot to do in the immediate neighborhood and we found ourselves on many excursions in the lesser known parts of the Big Island.
We will be back, this was more relaxing than most of my other trips. Definitely recommend it.

Here are a few things you should know:
It is a location away from the grid. There is a town, but it is small and not a tourist attraction.
There are a number of hippies and free spirited people/families that live on that side of the island. You do stand out as a tourist.
Bring water shoes and shoes with good soles to walk because a lot of the excursions go over lava rock.
The next grocery store is a 4 mile drive so stock up when you get there (which is what the guide says)
No need to bring books, or Hawaii guides, there are plenty in the house.
