About the property

A unique, tropical and peaceful place for 1 or 2 adults only

Welcome to our peaceful getaway guest studio that accommodates one or two adults in a detached ohana that is sparkling clean and private. Our apologies but this is not an environment set up for children.

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 swimming surrounded by trees, with tables and lounge chairs. This estate had a koi and lily pond, an abundance of exotic plants, palms, ferns, ginger, Rainbow Eucalyptus, Norfolk Pines, tulip, mango trees, fruit trees, orchids 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, ipod connector, and internet. A private setting with a porch/lanai and a propane BBQ. We have our own private well that offers the most wonderful tasting and pure drinking water around.

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 special 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. Strolling around our 2 landscaped acres to check on our fruit tree and herb garden. Enjoying Island coffee in the mornings and island drinks in the evenings. A vacation retreat of our very own.

Though it was much further out of the way then I expected it was worth the drive. Very peaceful place to relax. Top notch accommodations with everything up to date and sparkling. Very comfortable bed too. The pool area with the koi pond was a great place to relax and get some sun.

Little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

As beautiful as the pool is, it is not the main attraction. The park-like view of trees and grass outside the private bungalow is stunning. Spending a day just relaxing on the porch was the best day of our trip. Our hosts were waiting to greet us as we arrived and graciously showed us around. They are very kind people, are quick to communicate and answer questions and are very respectful of your privacy. The hosts and studio are highly recommended.

Didn't Even Make it Inside

  • 1 of 5

We we're basically asked to leave the moment we stepped out of the car. It should have been stated on the description, "NO KIDS ALLOWED". We traveled to the island with our 15 month old and had no trouble anywhere else. When booking this place on VRBO we said two guests because she doesn't need her own bed. Children under the age of 2 fly for free (you don't even have to pre notify airline until you are there that you are bringing a baby), go to Disneyland for free, go on cruise lines for free. Yes, we we're in the wrong for not making a point to say we had a child. BUT with how many times the description said private, it made it seem like the Ohauna was "private," as in it didn't matter. Children 0-2 years of age are somewhat of a gray area. We felt so unwelcome. She seemed very please we we're leaving. After speaking with her husband over the phone explaining that we had showed up with a child, she cam out and said "so you're leaving then, right." We negotiated for half a refund because she was not willling to return our full amount due to her cancellation policy. We then had to find a place to stay last minute at 4 o'clock in the afternoon.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect retreat! My husband and I stayed here in September. We found this to be a perfect location to see the East side of the island. From here we traveled to Hawaii Volcano National Park, Mauna Kea, and explored the areas around Hilo. It was away from the busyness, very peaceful and quiet.

The grounds are amazingly beautiful, I loved sitting on the lanai and enjoying the view. Our studio was beautiful and equipped with everything we could need. Toni did an outstanding job preparing the room! The kitchen area is so well stocked, you will want for nothing. She was even so thoughtful to have umbrellas out in case of rain.

I would highly recommend staying here. It's a lovely paradise, thanks for the amazing time!
