Property description

Keolamauloa, a historic family property, was built in the 1930's and is located 37 miles north of Hilo, at the cool 1800 ft. elevation in Paauilo Mauka.
It was originally developed in the 1930’s as a coffee farm. As a center of community life, this property included a family-run general store. Japanese movies were shown in the garage to homestead families and friends. The strength and resourcefulness of this family have inspired those who followed. Even now, their children and grandchildren continue to return to the home to find rest and to remember.

The verdant pasture lands and old family homesteads are evidence of the area’s rich agricultural and cattle ranching history. Today, our family works and plays on this small family farm and share a vision of sustainable living. We grow wholesome food and minimize our environmental impact by using eco-friendly practices. The grounds are abundant with native trees, chickens, and the family pet pig who loves to be fed. The ocean is viewed from the backyard.

The accommodation features quiet comfort with the soothing sound of small waterfalls. Guests will enjoy a private entrance, full kitchen/bathroom and 2 bedrooms – each with a double bed. A futon can be used for extra guests. Keolamauloa will welcome you home, whether you have traveled a few miles to Kalopa State Park, historic Honoka’a town and Waipio Valley, or taken a day trip to Kohala and the Kona Coast or to Hilo and the Volcano.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: I grew up in rural Eastern Oklahoma. After college city life called and I was off to Denver, LA and Honolulu. But country was really home to me and i moved to the Big Island and have been in rural Hamakua for many years.

Why the Owner Chose Paauilo, HI, USA:
Finding a old homestead in Paauilo 25 years ago was full of possibilities. Restoring 80 year old buildings and reclaiming land that was overgrown from years of neglect was daunting but was a project for a growing family Today KEOLAMAULOA is a family treasure.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Today our family strives to live simply and sustainably on our 4 acre homestead. We have abundant organic vegetables and eggs and take great satisfaction in reclaiming a native forest and wildlife habitat. Guests enjoy the quiet relaxation of this country home. Soaking in the hot tub, walking through the forest, feeding the pig are just of few of the delights of a farmstay at KEOLAMAULOA.
