About the property

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a newly constructed studio with all the amenities needed to enjoy a great vacation without the expensive resort hotel costs, make your own food at home and you can save even more, maybe enjoy a BBQ while taking in the unbelievably bright stars above at night, you have not seen bright stars till you have seen them from the Big Island of Hawaii. The studio is located right off the main hwy called Mamalahoa Hwy so its about 20 miles to Hilo. Hilo has many places to go and see that are spectacular picture taken places or maybe you want to take in the famous framers market where you can get hundreds of locally grown produces and many other services or goods like a one of a kind souvenirs made locally here in Hilo. Going 25 miles further south you will see Volcano National Park along with many other places to visit on the way. Going north about 45 miles will get you to the Famous Hapuna Beach where you will find the bright white sands and crystal clear aqua blue ocean water, want a beach with a little less traffic we can tell you how to get to them also there are within a few miles of this beach. Maybe you want to spend a day seeing Kona its just 80 miles away. Close to home is the Waipio Valley a must see, pure black sand beaches and miles of hiking trails where you will see unbelievable water falls and fruit trees galore (really should have a 4X4 to get down into the valley), and the many many water falls in the area to see the most famous is 'Akaka Falls State Park just 6 miles away. The green beauty of the area especially on the Hamakua Coast is spectacular, do not be afraid to explore take the old hwy roads and see the roads how they were just 50 years ago, and the lush tropical plants that grow wild on the sides of the roads.

About Owner/Manager

We fell in love with the Big Island of Hawaii since we were newly married now over 42 years ago, each time we go and make that plane trek we are in awe over how beautiful the Big Island really is, how the seven climate zones can exist in less then 200 miles, but also how green and lush the area stays year round and how fast the plant life grows from one year to another. We love to garden, to be able to enjoy the fresh fruits and vegetables and fresh squeezed juices and see the benefits of the fruit of our labor.

Owner/Manager purchased this studio in 2000

Why Owner/Manager chose Ninole

We really wanted a place that was close to Hilo the city where a lot of industry is located but far enough away where we can have some peace and quite at the end of the day, to be able to be outside and garden and take care of the outside area to turn it into our little Paradise, to see the benefits of a little hard work and to be able to live off the land and garden and take care of the outside area to turn it into our little Paradise, to see the benefits of a little hard work and to be able to live off the land.

What makes this studio unique

One of the most and first noticeable benefits we notice coming from a cold wintery climate is how our skin feels after just one day, no more chap stick or chapped skin it just disappears.

little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Nice and clean quaint little cottage.

We stayed here for my son's birthday.

That morning we saw a whale jump while we were standing in the yard.

Host George is very nice and helpful.

This was our 2nd time staying here nice little gem in hamakua coast. And close to Hilo and not far from Kona.

Recommend!! Thank you again George.

Ninole studio

  • 5 of 5

As a frequent traveler, and a person who stays in many hotels, taking a risk in trying “the new thing “” in vacation travel, was to say the least a bit of a cruise into uncharted waters. George is a super pleasant guy who made the experience very easy and delightful. The studio was well stocked with necessities and located about 20 miles from Hilo. A perfect place for two people. There is no access to the water from the studio, being that it is located on a part of the island that is mostly cliffs. If you like long walks on the beach in Hawaii this probably isn’t a good fit for you. My girlfriend and I however were there to explore the island and we really just spent time there at the studio in the evening. Seven days on the island and we never went out to eat in a restaurant, the studio was a good space to prepare meals for ourselves and eat outside overlooking the water. George was very responsive before, during and after our stay regarding questions about the studio and the surrounding area.

Nice little gateway

  • 5 of 5

We love this little cottage. Close to Laupahoehoe beach park with ocean view and stream. Very clean and comfortable little cottage.

Nice for a couple that want to be close to Hilo but away from the city.

But works for 3 people( small family)

George was very friendly and helpful.

Thank you
