Ookala house description

Drive 8 minutes on well-paved roads through eucalyptus forests and open pastures to arrive at our 'öhia-forested mauka retreat. This new lodge is located on a former Hawaiian homestead from 20's. Well known for its old growth 'öhia, this area was once a source of koa for canoes. This new lodge is solar-powered with a generator back-up and situated at the 2400 ft elevation near the forest edge. It offers cool mountain breezes, privacy, and a large open yard. A great room contains the living room, dining room and kitchen which is joined on either end with a bedroom, each with its own bathroom and large lanai. A 40 minute drive will take you to either beautiful Waimea or historic Hilo. If the weather is rainy or cloudy, you are 1 hour away from the top-rated Hapuna Beach. Closer by you will find western-style Honoka'a town, Laupahoehoe Point, The Laupahoehoe Train Museum, and the quaint 50's restaurant. Enjoy the private peacefulness and the native flora and fauna. It will be an adventure! Take a guided hike into the forest and learn its history.
