“Wonderful!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

My husband and I visited Keaau Place in Feb. of 2012 and found it to be an excellent "headquarters" for exploring the Big Island. It is very private and quiet with a soft hot tub on the lanai and a BQ grill as well. The place was extremely clean and very well appointed with a nice kitchenette, sofa bed and very comfortable queen size bed. The studio is decorated in the island motiff, you feel the tropics even if you don't go outside. The host of Keaau Place are very accommidating. If you forgot something they will get it for you or tell you exactly where you can find it in town. Even going so far as to loan you a GPS so you can find it easily. We enjoyed our 2 weeks at Keaau Place on the beautiful Big Island, and would recommend it highly. M and J

Room Tip: Saw both studios and would be comfy in either one

We stayed there for 6 days and did not regret one of them - even if it rained the whole day.
The place has 2 studios (our studio was No1 - the one with a little porch). It was fully equipped to meet our needs while vacationing on Hawaii - it had a little but practical kitchenette (see the official description on their homepage - it does not lie!), a nice&comfy bed, flat-TV which you can watch from bed (DVDs on-site!) tastefully furbished bathroom and a balcony/porch on two sides - the larger featuring a softtub and a table for outdoor-dining... oh, and there was also a barbecue-grill there... and washer, dryer... all in all - it has all that they promise online and maybe more - a certain charm - to it.
PLUS the caretakers on site are really friendly and ready to help - thank you guys!
Oh, the location might not be very central in whatever way, but it's quite convenient for making daily trips around Hilo side.

My wife and I stayed here on Oct. 19th and 20th before heading to the Kona side for another week. We loved the privacy, quietness, personal attention from the staff, and the amenities offered. The place was spotless and up to date. We had our 9 month old with us and had no problems letting him "explore" the room. We loved the hot tub and covered porch area. The grill was nice and new looking. The room had everything we needed to stay in and it wasn't too far to the other places we wanted to visit. Hilo was a short drive and the parks and beaches were close too. Plenty of food within a few miles also. It was a wonderful slice of paradise! The staff there were also amazing. They loaned us a personal item that we needed for our son, which was a life saver. Try getting that kind of service somewhere else!! We stayed a week on the other side of the island at a resort and were disappointing that we had to leave Keauu place. Hilo is much more our cup o tea than the Kona resorts, but both were in fact paradise on earth!! Mahalo to all those who helped make our stay unforgettable!! We hope to visit again soon!

My husband and I stayed (only) 3 nights at this beautiful place. It is a little hard to find and if possible one should arrive during daylight. But once you are there it's magic. Surrounded by tropical wilderness (there are houses around and a street in front but you get the feeling of being all alone) we got a studio which was spotlessly clean (actually the only place during our 3-week-vacation in 4 different condos in Las Vegas and LA and on Maui), beautifully decorated and wonderfully equipped with all that is needed and necessary in a kitchen. It does not have an oven but who needs one if you have a Weber gas grill on the verandah. We had everything we could possibly have needed in cabinets and drawers that were inside as clean as from the outside. In other condos I always have to clean the kitchen and the dishes but Keaau Place was my first experience of "like being at home". There is a hot tub on the verandah where you can soak outside sipping a glas of wine while listening to the frogs. There are a washing maschine and a dryer and they even provide washing liquid. 
It's little details like two umbrellas (would you think of bringing your own umbrella?) for your use that make this place really special. The caretakers Dallas and Brandi are doing an extraordinary job. They offered us a GPS to use during our stay but we had our own. Keaau Place is a half-hour drive away from the National Volcanoe Park so it is the ideal place as a starting point for all explorations. Is only 20 minutes away from the airport which was very convenient for us. We originally selected Keaau Place as it is only a short drive from there to Pohoiki beach where we wanted to make a lava boat tour. Unfortunately there was no lava flowing into the ocean. We will be back for the lava tour and could imagine no other  place to stay than Keaau Place. Only next time we will definetly stay longer!

Could not believe the attention to detail. My wife and I stayed for over a week and found it to be centrally located to all that the east end of the island had to offer. Everything that we needed to make ourselves feel at home was there. A fully equipped kitchen and BBQ made eating at "home" very cost effective. They have the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Of course relaxing in our own private hot tub was also a treat, seeing how we planned our vacation on a tight budget. All and all, we should have stayed an extra week as there was more that we wanted to see and do.

Very peaceful! Nothing was lacking, everything done excellent. Clean, clean, clean. Decorated beautifully. Loved the soft tub, and the lanai. Great Price as well.

We stayed at Keaau Place for a week at the end of February, 2011. We read all the reviews and were very excited to stay here, going to the National Parks all day, than relaxing in the hot tub or having a BBQ in the evening. First "problem" was that we got to know from the avaliability calendar that something changed with our reservation. We reserved the studio and got the 2 bedroom appartment. The shock came when we moved in. There was some kind of cleaning in the house, but you could feel that everything was stinky. I found unused and clean bedlinen in the closet and changed the linen; we of course used slippers inside the house and after a week they looked like we used them outside. The refrigiator was not cleaned, the tub was dirty, so everything was stinky. I was searching for a mop to clean the floor but did not find one....It ruined a bit our week. This place is quiet and well equipped, a big and continuous cleaning would make this place perfect.
