If your idea of Hawaii is Waikiki, Don Ho, crowds, expensive activities & tours, this isn't your place. But, if you'd like to experience a peaceful authentic rural Hawaii setting amid beautiful exotic foliage, Hangin' Loose is it. And . . . you can experience it au natural. Listen to the birds & the trade winds whispering thru the palm fronds, watch a million stars while serenaded by coqui frogs at night. Walk the grounds and see hundreds of native & exotic tropical flowers & plants. Hang out by the pool, relax in the hot tub, sunbathe on the deck, have a drink . . . get the picture? Or, visit some of the many nearby sites (almost all nearly free): Volcano National Park, clothing-optional beaches, swim nude with the dolphins, star-gaze atop Mauna Kea, check out the waterfalls, tour historic Hilo or funky Pahoa Town. Hike thru a volcano. Visit an orchid farm, or a macadamia nut plantation. Golf in Madam Pele's backyard (Volcano Golf Course). Snorkel with sea turtles. Visit a steam vent -- nature's sauna. Nude hiking along a pristine shoreline. And, much more . . . Mostly, relax & have fun. That's what Hangin' Loose is all about.

Great Place to stay just a short drive from Hilo on the Big Island. Just a short drive from Black Sand Beach (Clothing optional) Owners are very friendly. They had a wine and cheese gathering in the evening.

Kim & I stayed at hangin loose in February 2018 on the way home from the BNB. The first thing I should mention here is that our hosts, Michael & Janice, were exceptional. While we’ve been nudists for years this was our first time staying in a yurt and it turned out to be

We stayed at Hangin’ Loose in November and Michael and Jan were great hosts. I can't understand anything less than a 4 star rating as they were great hosts and, we loved the accommodations. It is a little out of the way so we would recommend bringing any snacks or beer you may

If it gets better than this, we'd like to know! Anyone looking for a true Hawaiian hideaway in a lush, relaxed, unique spot need look no further - we've been so inspired by this location, it's owners, and the local scene that we're planning our retirement on the Hilo side of the

We stayed 2 weeks in the Garden Cottage. It's not far from the highway and we had no trouble finding the place by following their instructions. It was easy to come and go as we pleased. The cottage had everything we needed. The grounds were very nice with lots of plants and

"We love the yurt but be aware, it is loud with Jungle sounds. I found it very cool, but may bothersome to some."
"To us it had to be the Yurt with a private hot tub although the other two holiday lets have use of the communal pool and hot tub."
"There are 2 yurts and 1 cottage. We only stayed in one of the yurts and it was great."
