About Guy Berryessa

We're a two dad family with two beautiful daughters who try to spend our summers on Hawaii and dream of the day we can live there full-time.

Guy Berryessa purchased this studio in 2004

Why Guy Berryessa chose Papaikou

We wanted a well-built home, with gorgeous yard and lots of wood and space, that we could share with family and friends from around the world, as well as occasional guests who would like to enjoy our little slice of paradise! We loved the location and setting--a perfect balance of quiet, lush surroundings, yet a beautiful short drive to town.

What makes this studio unique

It has a gorgeous rural location on the stream and waterfall, yet so very close to town and its conveniences. That we can bike or walk to beaches is a plus as well!

Gorgeously decorated, amazing yard!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay while working in Hilo for the summer. The studio looks out over a beautiful yard and has everything you would need for a short or long term stay. You get to fall asleep to the sounds of the rainforest! Guy is very responsive and a wonderful host. Thanks for the great stay!

Fantastic property from which to explore the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly recommend this property close to Hilo. Clean, functional, quiet and a great location to explore the Big Island. Hire a car, spend time at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Mauna Kea, waterfalls, botanical gardens and much more.

What a Delicious place to stay in Hilo!

  • 5 of 5

This studio is just right, perfect, pick your own words. It is comfy, airy, large.

The yard is a gorgeous garden.

You have access to washer/dryer , SAUNA ! If you are a Sauna user like we are, this one is right on the money as far as time and temp to heat.

I would highly recommend this place to a couple or even 4. We had a friend stay one night and we were all comfortable. When we go back to Hilo, OUR HILO HOME will be our place.

Map

Car: recommended

On the beautiful Hamakua Coast, yet only 5 minutes from downtown Hilo and its various restaurants, shops and Farmers' Market, but a world away on a lush river gorge in a quiet village with its own beach and scenic drive and the island's finest botanical gardens. Near Honolii, excellent surf beach, accessible en route to Hilo by car, our bicycles (including one built for two!) or even a pleasant walk.
