About the Property
Studio, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
From Hawi you can go ten minutes west to dry heat and swimming, fifteen minutes east to lush tropical jungle and the wild Pololu Valley, twenty minutes south to the summit views from the cool Kohala Mountain top or you can walk into Hawi town and enjoy a cup of coffee with the locals then get a massage or shop for locally made treasures in our artist filled community. After a fresh fish dinner at one of the local restaurants you may even be lucky enough to catch some live music by one of the many famous musicians living in our town.
Enjoy the benefits of a kama'aina (local) host, and use our years of island experience to help you get the most from your island stay. Having an on site host opens a vast potential of possibilities that most people never get to experience while visiting Hawaii.
Travelers who come to North Kohala should know that they are forgoing the hot dry heat and touristy areas to be out in the country. Most of North Kohala is very jungle like and therefore includes all animals and critters found in such locations. If geckos, pigs, spiders, mosquitoes, wild turkeys and roosters trouble you, then North Kohala is not for you.

About the owner: Our family has deep roots in the Hawaiian Islands. While we certainly do not consider ourselves native Hawaiian, we can however, trace our family back to the early 1900s in Hawaii. Jim's mother grew up in hawaii and spent years in the entertainment industry on Oahu, singing and dancing for the early visitors to the islands. The aloha spirit is very alive in our family as well as the town of Hawi where we chose to settle down. We invite you to join us and experience the warm hawaiian sun and an even warmer aloha!
Why the Owner Chose Hawi, HI, USA:
It was amazing; we rounded the the tip of the island and went from rain-forest to desert. What had been a tropical deluge of over 3 inches per hour had given way to sunshine and an amazing rainbow. It was in the magic of that 5 minutes that we decided that the big island was the place we wanted to live. It was 3 months later when we became the owners our Hawi home.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The greatest benefit of choosing to stay with us is called aloha. What do you want and need to make your stay special? Adventure ideas, a meal prepared, your shopping done prior to arrival, a ride somewhere, more privacy; you name it and we can get it done for you. It is our goal that you have a perfectly relaxed and enjoyable vacation and then come back to see us again next year!
