E KOMO MAI (Welcome!)

Private Entrance

We provide an apartment in the main house for a farm stay vacation or short term rental, and have welcomed guests come from all over the world. Our typical visitors have been those looking for a more homegrown experience of Hawaii, who are excited about the range of activities around us. Our favorite suggestions include hiking in the nearby Waipio Valley and Kalopa State Park, going to First Friday in Honokaa Town or taking in a movie at our historic Honokaa Peoples Theatre. We especially recommend eating at the amazing Grandmas Kitchen, taking a day trip to Kohala, Kona, Hilo or Volcano…or just enjoying the quiet of the homestead, a relaxing hot tub, and a walk in the Paauilo countryside. This is a great place to visit and we are happy to be able to share it.

kitchenThe restful accommodation, located on the lower half of the main house, features a private entrance, fully equipped kitchen, living room, bathroom and two bedrooms (each with a double bed). Additional ammenities include laundry, wifi, foosball, tv/dvd, and the soothing sound of small waterfalls. Native banana, koa, kukui, and ohia trees provide the shade for hapu ferns, taro, awa and noni. Strolling throughout our four acre homestead and growing forest, you’ll visit the chickens hard at work, the pet pig, eating and resting, and the ocean beyond. The forest is filled with the sound of birds and the frequent view of a circling I’o (the endangered, native Hawaiian Hawk). E Komo Mai! Come and enjoy.

  • From our Guestbook

    If you want to get away from the commercial touristic experience of Hawaii this is the place to stay at. The two-bedroom rental is charming and fully functional with full kitchen, outside BBQ and Hot tub! This place will give you a sense of the local life style, making you feel at home and never wanting to leave. I have stayed twice at the Keolamauloa farm and my wife and I can't wait to come back.

    This is our favorite place to stay on the island. The property is warm and inviting, and even has a hot tub! They're solar operated, grow several varieties of fruits and veggies, have a huge pet pig, a chicken coop, etc. This part of the island also has endless opportunity for exploration.
