Big Island

We thought that Hawaii sounded like a wonderful place to spend Valentine's.
We didn't want to go where it was crowded with tourists, so we chose go go to Hilo,on the Big Island.
We rented a house in Kapoho and drove all over the island for 10 days.
We fell in love with the place and was ready to pack up and move there.

Pros and Cons

    What a great spot to celebrate Valentine's day. Sounds like you two had a lovely time here.

    Hilo Hattie's is great for some things, however their stock never changes. I know for a fact that they have the same type of items 10 years ago and will have the same things 10 years to come.

    I like the idea of renting a house. In 2005, I did not know you as well; now, this means so much more. Tree statues, orchid sent home as a gift, Volcano Nat. Park, local tips..all outstanding. A joy to read your positive perspectives.

    Great off the beaten path suggestions (Pahoe, lava trees and the South Point especially). This historical park of very crazy name (Pu'uhonua o Honaunau :-) looks absolutely fantasic... a must see... :-)

    Great page! We were on the Big Island for our 25th anniversary in 2000. BUT, the Mauna Loa nut shop had pounds of free samples, it was great then!

    Excellents tips and photos Kay! We are planning a May trip to the big Island. Will try your recommendation for a rental home - we always prefer them as well. Don't have to show our lilly white Alaskan skin in public!
