Property description

Here is a little gem, set in the charming and historical Hilo beach neighborhood of Keaukaha, that feels like the old Hawaii. Studio bedroom with full bath and brand new private lanai. Property is across the street from the ocean. Cozy room with comfy queen bed, HDTV, full HD cable and free high speed WiFi. Kitchenette including small refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. Clean, relaxing, and affordable!

Originally built as an artist studio, the 'Ohana is separate from the main house. It's very private, with lots of windows, all facing the rain forest.

• Walking distance to ocean and Hilo's best beach parks for snorkeling, swimming, tide pools, sea turtles, kayaking and whale watching in winter
• Beautiful rainforest/garden setting and views. It feels like you are in a tree house
• Small but comfy, approximately 250 square feet
• Small full bath (shower, sink, toilet)
• Standing/oscillating fan
• Tastefully decorated
• Large comfy new queen bed, 100% cotton sheets
• 40 minutes to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park & just 10 minutes to downtown Hilo
• Beach gear available for use: towels, chairs, mats, boogie board
• Sunny part of Hilo
• *Brand new private deck/lanai attached to Ohana*

It is a bit rustic, but with a great bed, HDTV and free WiFi, it feels like luxury camping. Coqui frogs will sing you to sleep each night.

Just a short walk to the ocean. There are beach parks within 5 minutes of this property including Carlsmith Beach Park, Leleiwi Beach Park and the popular Richardson's Beach Park with black sand.

Hilo Town is home to one of the best Farmer's Markets in Hawai'i and some of the best restaurants around. Yummy dining options, shopping, gateway to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, orchid orchards, waterfalls, rainforest, golf, zip lining, hiking, and so much more!

We are happy to share our knowledge about where to go and what to do while on the Big Island.

About the owner: Cathy and Jeff Dale love the Big Island and are excited to share this wondrous place with you.

Jeff fell in love with Hawaii on the first of many visits from California and is fulfilling a life long dream to live here full-time.

Why the Owner Chose Hilo, HI, USA:
Enjoy a piece of Hawai'i in a special corner of the Big Island of Hawai'i without breaking the bank. We love our old style island home and are excited to share it with others wanting to experience the beauty of the Big Island.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
This home was built in 1938 by Cathy's grandparents. The 'Ohana was originally built as an artists studio. The studio is part of a 1 acre property with extensive beautiful landscaping including fruit trees, tropical plants and flowers. We hope you will visit our little piece of paradise.
