About the property

A unique place for a tropical getaway

Aloha and welcome to our getaway guest studio for one or two in a detached ohana that is sparkling clean and private.

Located in Hawaiian Paradise Park near Kaloli Point. We are conveniently located, close to all east side attractions, Hilo town, Volcano, Kapoho Tide pools, hot ponds, etc. Enjoy and experience everything you love about Hawaii right here.

Nestled on two beautifully landscaped acres complete with gorgeous swimming area surrounded by trees, with tables and lounging chairs,, a koi and lily pond, an abundance of exotic plants, palms, ferns, ginger, Rainbow Eucalyptus, Norfolk Pines, tulip, mango trees, fruit trees and flowers.

The guest ohana is fully self-contained with private garden and landscaped tropical views. Equipped with a super comfy queen size bed, small kitchen, full refrigerator, bathroom with shower, TV with cable, surround sound, ipod connector, and internet. A private sitting porch/lanai with a propane BBQ. Did I mention our wonderful tasting and pure drinking water from our own private well?

Located just 20 minutes away from the quaint town of Hilo, a charming mix of old and new Hawaii where you can enjoy the abundance of unique shops, restaurants, a theater, boutiques, museums, a large Farmer's Market where you will find fresh produce, prepared foods, clothing, local art, jewelry and gifts. We are 25 minutes from Volcano and approximately 20 - 25 mintues to all Hilo and Puna coast beaches. You can walk to Kaloli Point from here to hike along trails, fish, whale watch, or sit and watch the sunrise in the mornings.

Check in time is 3:00pm and check out is 11:00am. If you need an exception please let us know and if we can we can arrange to accommodate your needs regarding times.

This is a non-smoking environment. Mahalo for your consideration.

Why Toni A. Hatch chose Keaau

We chose this home for many reasons from the first moment we saw it. First for the peaceful setting, away from the city noises and traffic. Also the location, remote but easily accessible to all East side activities and destinations. Having our own private well with the best water on the island was and still is a very grateful treat.

Our home contains a separate private detached unit with a private garden view that allows us to share our unique space with others.

We fell in love at first site. We know you will too.

What makes this studio unique

We love the views, the cool trade wind breezes, the expanse and privacy of the two landscaped acres with private botanical surroundings. Falling asleep to the tropical sounds and waking to the sunrise and birds singing. Swimming in our pool anytime day or night, and showers in our enclosed outdoor shower. Feeding the koi in the evenings. Walks around the 2 acres to check on our fruit trees with a glass of wine. Enjoying Island coffee in the mornings and island drinks in the evenings. A vacation retreat of our very own.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in november 2016 for 4 nights and it was a great base to explore the east side of the island. The studio is beautiful and has everything you would need.

The owners are very welcoming and very helpful, the pool is huge , we wish we could have used it more but we were busy exploring the island. They have everything you need for the pool and the beach. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook your meals. The grounds are lovely and private, hopefully we can come back next year.

Thanks, Barb

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cute little ohana tucked away with everything you need. Toni thought of everything! We loved it and wished we could have been there longer. Bed was super comfy, amenities were great and the property was beautiful! Be prepared for some tree frogs though! If you're a light sleeper they may be too much, but we loved them! Sounded like our son's sound machine. We slept like babies.

Spectacular Rental

  • 5 of 5

Toni and Kim were incredibly kind and welcoming. There guest house is spacious, clean and very well decorated. Toni has thought of absolutely everything, from beach towels to frisbees. Very peaceful setting that is a great location (equal distance to most of the best spots on the east side of the island.

The best place to stay on the Big Island.

  • 5 of 5

Toni and Kim are so welcoming. The studio is just perfect and gorgeous. Toni has really thought of every detail. The kitchen is well stocked with all counter appliances you would need. Also the laundry area is so convenient and helpful to have. The pool is amazing, unlike any pool I had ever swam in before this trip. There is a koi pond directly off the pool area; I loved watching the very large koi swimming. Toni and Kim really embrace the aloha spirit and are just great people.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This is Toni's "baby" and it shows in every aspect. Tastefully appointed, comfortable, and extremely clean. I could continue with many superlatives but trust me: It is perfect in every way!

Toni and her husband Kim feel like old friends from the very first meeting. We enjoyed spending time with them as much as sight-seeing!

Don't worry about the fact that it doesn't have a range - it wasn't missed. We used the grill on the private patio. It has a full size fridge and microwave.

I often end up disappointed when finding lodging but was so happy here. I think your search for lodging on the Big Island is over -- book this place!

An amazing piece of paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

What beautiful place!

Toni & Kim (Toni, her and Kim, him 😊),

Thanks so much for sharing your space with us. Koi pond, tropic landscape, huge warm pool and wonderful hospitality... and, 25 minutes from Hilo. You'd think you were hours away.

Clean, well decorated and beautiful studio. Had access to plenty of beach towels and their washer and dryer. We were worried about both, as we know this was not a resort.

Could not have asked for more. Again, thank you guys! Mahalo!
