This hidden gem, nestled amongst lush greenery in Paauilo Mauka, offers a peaceful refuge during your Big Island adventures. Our two-bedroom, garden apartment is nestled on the ground level of the historic Main House at Keolamauloa Homestead. It includes a private entrance, a fully equipped kitchen, and a bathroom that looks out on ferns and the pond below. The two bedrooms each have a double-size bed and one includes the sounds of a small waterfall outside. A pull-out couch can be used for an additional 1-2 guests. The comfortable living room is stocked with books of Hawaiian cultural and botanical interest and includes a propane fireplace for cool evenings.

Wake up to the sounds of birds in the surrounding native O’hia, Kukui and Koa trees, relax in our Japanese-style wood soaking tub, take a cold dip in our pond or lie on the grass in the sun. You might even want to get the firepit going in the evening, listen to the tree frogs and crickets sing, and stargaze in the backyard.

Keolamauloa will welcome you home, whether you have taken a beautiful walk in our rural neighborhood, traveled a few miles to Kalopa State Park, historic Honoka’a town and Waipio Valley, or taken a day trip to Kohala and the Kona Coast or to Hilo and the Volcano.

We wanted to get away from it all for a couple days and this was a great escape! Quiet, peaceful, and relaxing.

We totally loved this property, Sally was so easy to work with and we have absolutely no complaints except we couldn’t stay longer!! The property is simply beautiful!!!! You felt like you’re really in a Hawaiian Paradise! ! At night you can sit by the fire pit or soak in the hot tub and just listen to nature!! The home was spacious and we didn’t need to ask for anything more!!! Staying there brought me to a place that I can honestly was I was the most relaxed ever on Amy trips I ever taken !! I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this paradise retreat.

If anything, the pictures etc do not do this property justice. Everything about it is wonderful. We were able to completely relax. This place is very very special and glows with care. Thanks so much!

We were very impressed and happy with our stay here! We loved having the kitchen to cook our own meals and listening to some tunes on their record player. They have dehumidifiers in the room, which we really appreciated because this is the wet side of island it is pretty humid. For the most part we were up and gone while it was still dark out side and came back after the sun had set. The last day we made a point to come back early to have a relaxing night in their hot tub. It was wonderful and I couldn’t believe that we didn’t do it sooner. You could enjoy your vacation just as much with out ever leaving their property. I recommend visiting the vanilla farm up the road! Its within walking distance and they have great coffee and delicious bread pudding.

You will not find a more unique and relaxing property in all of Hawaii. We spent a week here exploring this property and the area around it. Wish we could have stayed longer. Apartment offers everything you need on your vacation.

The apartment, located on a large property, was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated with the hosts’ art. Our stay there was so peaceful and relaxing with the sound of birds and frogs, and the water fountain flowing in the koi pond below our bedroom window. From there we were able to explore the eastern and northern parts of the island. We would definitely come back!

The downstairs apartment was well equipped, very clean, and quite comfortable. The setting was lovely and very peaceful. The lanai was a terrific place to "hang out". The Lundburg family treated us very well and were quite accommodating.

beautiful house and property, mauna kea in the backdrop, stargazing at night from the backyard, waking up to cool sounds, cats, pup and a pig, would stay again

We had a family emergency and needed a place to stay last minute. Keolamauloa was a perfect sanctuary for us. After a stressful day, it was nice to be in a remote area, surrounded by beautiful views and greenery. Loved the animals outside- I'm allergic to cats, but that didn't stop me from petting them a little...the chickens were adorable, and it was fun feeding the pig...I even looked forward to seeing the bullfrog (as long as he didn't jump towards me). The upstairs neighbors were sweet - treated us to homemade cupcakes and kindly folded the laundry I had accidentally forgot in the dryer. Sally (the owner's daughter) was kind, helpful and considerate - made us fresh iced tea and plucked fresh flowers from the garden. Kaye (the owner) was always responsive and attentive to any questions I had. If you're looking for a rustic getaway to be your temporary home, then Keolamauloa is a perfect place.

It was great to stay with Kaye and her family at the farm stay. They could not have been more hospitable, helpful and friendly. The location is great - especially if you like to be off the beaten track - and the apartment is comfortable, well-equipped and clean. Hawaii Big Island is very interesting and impressive as a destination - with much beautiful scenery and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Seeing whales from a boat and from the shore in March was a real highlight -so was the Volcano National Park.
