Your Host Matthew, who also owns and operates the Hilo Bay Hale Bed and Breakfast, opened the Jungle Farmhouse vacation rental in Sept. 2011 and is excited to share their rain forest retreat. The Hilo Bay Hale has become one of the most highly rated places to stay in Hilo and the same level of quality can be found at the Jungle Farmhouse. Here, the sun and the rain do all the work and provide us with fresh avocados, tangerines, passion fruit, pineapple, papaya, bananas, and coffee from the forest. And our free-range chickens provide us with fresh eggs too! (When available, we will stock the kitchen with fresh fruit and eggs). We also have four ducks and two or three pigs running around the area. Outside your living room door lies a two-acre jungle sanctuary, home to native birds, exotic plants, and towering trees. Here, the hidden realms of nature are revealed, creating a great place to meditate and listen to the forest. With three bedrooms and a big living room and porch, it's perfect for a romantic holiday or family retreat.
