Aloha and welcome to Sandra's Vacation Retreat. A clean and cozy, beautifully decorated studio situated on a quiet, country one acre parcel in the beautiful Puna district south of Hilo. Located in Hawaiian Paradise Park and close to the ocean, this studio has a private entrance and screened-in, private lanai with a gas grill and burner. We are located in a safe and quiet neighborhood only 6 blocks from the beautiful coast where you can enjoy a walk to and along the ocean; great biking and hiking, and fishing off the nearby cliffs. Located in a natural setting, this peaceful retreat offers the sounds and trade winds of the nearby ocean as well as the proximity to the beauty of some of the Big Island's more beautiful attractions. Among these, of course, are the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the two volcano mountains, Mauna Kea... Read more

I've stayed at Sandra's several times (family live nearby), and feel like I'm returning to a friend's bungalow. Kai barks a welcome, lets me pet him, then retires to the big house. Sandra advises that the massage and aesthetics studio is up and running and available for bookings. Patrick chats a bit then goes on his way. The studio is spacious, comfortable and is attached to the main house but has a private entrance. Furniture and kitchen utensils are top quality. An air conditioner has been installed since I was there last and it's a God send at night when the kokee frogs start their chorus. They're fine as background but not as the main attraction, which is what they sound like when one perches on your window sill. You will probably find a fresh orchid or two in the studio as well as papaya or banana .

When you rent a timeshare or room in someone's home, you sometimes you feel like you’re couch surfing at a stranger’s. Not at Sandra’s Vacation Retreat. From the bed to the furniture to the kitchenette utensils, everything is new and high quality. The studio is attached to the home but has a private entrance and is well enough insulated that you don’t hear owners Sandra and Patrick (who are a delightful, hospitable, helpful couple). Sandra includes many little touches that went above and beyond: spa-quality bath products and towels, a welcome fruit basket, tea and coffee, good stereo system and television. Attached screened lanai has a BBQ, table, chairs and swim gear. Sweet Australian shepherd, Kai, welcomes but doesn't intrude. By the time you read this, Sandra’s spa (also in the main house) should be up and running. Sandra’s is located in a sparsely populated neighborhood a 10 minute walk to the lava cliff at ocean’s edge (sunbathing yes, swimming no), on the east side of the Big...
