Papaaloa studio description

This new studio unit has all the conveniences and class of modern day living, situated within the charm of Old Hawaii.

A stroll in the vibrant neighborhood offers guests the natural beauty and local family living reflective of true Hawaii.

In a wing of a more than one hundred year old plantation building, this rental was recently renovated to accommodate a five star world traveler who enjoys being off the beaten track.

Community tennis courts, swimming pool, and ball field are within walking distance.

We can guide you on adventures from the mountains to the oceans and the farms, villages and rivers in between. Hidden hiking trails, secret waterfall swims, paragliding, diving, spearfishing, beekeeping, sailing and motorcycle riding are some of our closest friends and family members skills and services.

Our most satisfied guests have explored the island by day and been grateful to return home to the clean and comfortable tranquility of the studio at night.

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About: We feel grateful to tend the land here, enjoy the waterfalls and share the experience with with others! See above for activities we like to do when we play after farm work.

                      Why Papaaloa:
                      Our family owns 50 Acres up the Hill & is engaged in diversified organic agriculture. Farm visits and adventures are optional with advance notice.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                      Our studio is located equidistant from Hilo and Honokaa on the Hamakua coast. This provides a great opportunity to explore this agricultural and historic coast without having to spend all day in your car commuting to destinations (if you are staying Waimea or Hilo way.) This location is ideal for those interested in the unencumbered vacation experience.
