About Laura A. Richman, RS REMAX Properties

I am a Real estate agent with REMAX Properties. I was born here, raised on the east coast and have been back in Hawaii for 28 years.

We enjoy outdoor activities, nature, gardening, snorkeling and the ocean. This is the perfect place to enjoy them all!

A lot of info is not in the travel books. We will be happy to share first hand knowledge & aloha with you.

Laura A. Richman, RS REMAX Properties purchased this studio in 2008

Why Laura A. Richman, RS REMAX Properties chose Keaau

We chose this section of the island because of the sunny weather in this area. We get more sunshine and less rain than Hilo, yet we are only 20 minutes away.

We are only ½ mile from the ocean so you can walk there and also hear the crashing surf most of the time. We have one acre of land and love to garden and grow food. I love it here! Lots of things to see and do.

What makes this studio unique

Our unit is new, clean, comfortable, relaxing, and very well appointed. We enjoy some of the freshest air in the world.

There are many things that are not in the guide books and we are happy to share our first hand knowledge of the area with our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When I arrived I was tired and ready for a bath and a good place to call home after a long day of travel. Laura, the owner , had already arranged things for me so that I could be comfortable and ready to use the studio even at my late hour.



The studio was very clean and nicely arranged, even in the atmosphere and energy that it inspires. I felt relaxing just by stepping in ... then the clean bathroom and tub with as much as the bubble bath available was a genuine welcoming touch.



Laura was always available and interested in making my stay pleasant and worry free. She is a very caring, loving lady and though you perceive the caring presence, she lives next door, you'll feel your privacy and space truly allowed to you. I truly felt cared for, in every sense. I had friends who were staying at nearby vacation studios and homes , but, by far, Laura' studio was the best. I was happy, happy, very happy of my choice and ... I'm planning on coming back if I am in Keaau again.

Thank you Laura, for your hospitality and service.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really loved our stay! It was so very peaceful and relaxing. The property was very clean and very well maintained. The studio is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable vacation. We would highly recommend staying here to anyone. Our host was so pleasant and helpful in every respect and would love to visit her again! We feel we now have a new friend!

Quiet, clean and exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Dolphin hideaway is an exceptional value, clean, quiet and out of the mayhem of Hilo yet striking distance to all amenities. We loved waking the quiet streets to the shoreline Puna trail. Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing stay
