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
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.
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!
It's a great place to stay in a perfect location just outside of Hilo. Has everything you need.
Up-to -date , clean studio with all amenities supplied. Excellent location - 5 minute drive to Hilo town. Quiet.
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.
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.
Me and my wife stayed here for our first time in Hawaii just this last week and it was a fantastic place to stay. The owner made our stay perfect by providing everything we would need to have a great vacation (including snorkeling gear, boogie boards, and all things needed to cook up meals). One thing we did not see in the pictures of this listing but were extremely grateful to find out it included was a full functioning stove and oven. If you are looking for a place to stay in order to take in all the big island has to offer then look no further.
This is a cozy place to stay and my wife and I had a great time during our stay here. We are already planning out our next trip to Hawaii and if we decide to stay on the big island again; there is a definite possibility we will stay here again. A few places we found during our stay that we would recommmend include:
- Hilo Farmers market
- Hilo Homemade Ice Cream
- Richardson Beach Park (Hilo)
- Akaka Falls and Rainbow Falls (Outside Of Hilo)
- Punaluu Black Sand Beach (Naalehu)
- and finally Lava Rock Cafe before and/or after you go to Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park (Volcano)
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.
