Your studio is a separate building in front of the main house, 10 x 20’ with a fully equipped kitchenette, a queen-size bed, a small private bathroom and your own outdoor sitting area.

Set in a quiet residential neighborhood on the Hamakua Coast about 25 miles north off Hilo, this studio offers a great "home base" from which to explore the rest of the island. The studio is quaint, clean, and comfy. Amenities include clean bedding and towels,... more
