    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Papa’aloa is a sleepy little town along the beautiful Hamakua Coast, just 24 miles north of Hilo and about 10 miles from KoleKole Beach State Park, Akaka Falls and the world famous Arboretum. 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.

    Additional Location Information
    This is an excellent central location, just 15 minutes from dramatic Laupahoehoe Point where you can watch the ocean waves crashing against the rocks. It’s a half hour drive south to Hilo along the coast, past the lush valleys and waterfalls. There are lots of fun restaurants and places to shop in Hilo, with much less vog (smog from the volcano) than in Kona. From the studio, you can drive north a half hour to historic Honokaa with its restored old-fashioned movie theatre, and a little further North to the lush Waipeo Valley. Or turn west from Honokaa and another half hour will take you to the town of Waimea with a brewery and more restaurants and galleries. Or go up Saddle Road to the world class observatory on Mauna Kea (bring a set of warm clothes for that trip!).

This studio is clean and has the simple amenities to fulfill a stay for travelers like my wife and I who traveled the circular loop around the island. Simple make-it-yourself breakfasts are enhanced with papaya and bananas offered with your visit. Restaurants are limited in the local area necessitating dining in Hilo before retiring for the evening unless you prefer... more

I really enjoyed my stay here. I accidently showed up a day early, and Joy was kind enough to let me stay in her guest room, as there were already people staying in the studio. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and accommodations in the studio. I got fresh papayas and bananas, and the studio had everything I wanted... more

We thoroughly enjoyed our months stay with Joy and will be happy to return in the future. This side of the island has the wonderful vegetation and Joy is at a nice elevation so that a breeze is nearly always present. If you want hot, dry, desert & higher prices go to the Kona side. Hilo is about 30 minutes...
