Hawi Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Yes, the Big Island does have a north shore, SHHHHHH! This unique spot on Hawaii is unspoiled by excessive tourism, traffic, and VOG (volcanic pollution). Come have an island experience the way locals enjoy it! Gaze across the channel at the island of Maui as you breathe in the clean clear air courtesy of the trade winds. Feel the aloha spirit in the quaint small town of Hawi which borders the tropical and dry sides of the island. The north shore of Hawaii is for people who want to go beyond the high priced hotel experience and enjoy the islands the way they have been enjoyed for generations.

From Hawi you can go ten minutes west to dry heat and swimming, fifteen minutes east to lush tropical jungle and the wild Pololu Valley, twenty minutes south to the summit views from the cool Kohala Mountain top or you can walk into Hawi town and enjoy a cup of coffee with the locals then get a massage or shop for locally made treasures in our artist filled community. After a fresh fish dinner at one of the local restaurants you may even be lucky enough to catch some live music by one of the many famous musicians living in our town.

Enjoy the benefits of a kama'aina (local) host, and use our years of island experience to help you get the most from your island stay. Having an on site host opens a vast potential of possibilities that most people never get to experience while visiting Hawaii.

Travelers who come to North Kohala should know that they are forgoing the hot dry heat and touristy areas to be out in the country. Most of North Kohala is very jungle like and therefore includes all animals and critters found in such locations. If geckos, pigs, spiders, mosquitoes, wild turkeys and roosters trouble you, then North Kohala is not for you.

About The Owner

Our family has deep roots in the Hawaiian Islands. While we certainly do not consider ourselves native Hawaiian, we can however, trace or family back to the early 1900s in Hawaii. Jim's mother grew up in hawaii and spent years in the entertainment industry on Oahu, singing and dancing for the early visitors to the islands.

The aloha spirit is very alive in our family as well as the town of Hawi where we chose to settle down. We invite you to join us and experience the warm hawaiian sun and an even warmer aloha!

The Owner purchased this studio in 2006

Why The Owner chose Hawi

It was amazing; we rounded the the tip of the island and went from rain-forest to desert. What had been a tropical deluge of over 3 inches per hour had given way to sunshine and an amazing rainbow. It was in the magic of that 5 minutes that we decided that the big island was the place we wanted to live. It was 3 months later when we became the owners our Hawi home.

What makes this studio unique

The greatest benefit of choosing to stay with us is called aloha. What do you need; adventure ideas, a meal prepared, your shopping done prior to arrival, a ride somewhere, more privacy? You name it and we can get it done for you. It is our goal that you have a perfectly relaxed and enjoyable vacation and then come back to see us again next year!

Soooooooo AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
Girls getaway!!!

My three friends and I stayed in Jim and Leah's studio cabin for 3 nights and we loved, loved, loved our stay. It was raining hard when we arrived and Jim immediately greeted us with umbrellas and offered to unload our luggage. Their studio was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the location is located in a quiet neighborhood. Everything you need for cooking a meal at home is there. Our favorite part is the outdoor shower!!

To quote Jim, "You have to have Aloha (kindness) to see Aloha." We felt Jim and Leah's aloha during our entire stay.

We would stay here again!

Lynda (from Seattle)

p.s.: Be sure to schedule your stay through a Saturday so you can visit Hawi's farmers market and to eat Jim & Leah's yummy food at the Sol Kitchen. We ordered Leah's kombucha, their chicken salad and roasted pepper sandwich! Yum..yum...and good for you! So ono!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Lynda,

Every once in a while we have guests who actually slow down enough on their vacation to truly see what a paradise we have here. We are glad that you were among that group of people. It's truly not the physical beauty of the place (although that is a nice plus) that make it a paradise, it's the aloha.

When I said to you that "one must have aloha to see aloha" I was not using the word in one of its many narrow forms. I was using it in its broadest form: Aloha, love, affection, compassion, mercy, sympathy, kindness, sentiment, grace, charity; greeting, salutation, regards; loved one; beloved, loving, kind, compassionate, charitable, lovable; to love, be fond of; to show kindness, mercy, pity, charity, affection; to venerate; to remember with affection.

MAHALO FOR SEEING! THIS IS THE PARADISE WE HOPE ALL OUR GUESTS CAN SEE!

Aloha Family,

Don't want to leave - it was very restorative. We live in Kona and needed some country retreat. We enjoyed getting to know you and your family; eating at the market with you - food was fabulous; the outdoor shower was incredible! Loved the art and high end finishes - your thoughtfulness is seen in every inch to every corner in this hale. We will be back again!

A Hui Ho!

Most relaxing weekend in a long time!

  • 5 of 5
A quick weekend getaway close to home (Hilo), very inexpensive, close to our favorite diving and fishing spot in Hawi and most of all very laid back and relaxing.

This cute studio was all of that and more! Big enough for 4 adults, all the comforts of home but in a very local style country setting in the heart of Hawi town. We all loved the unique outdoor shower which was perfect after a long day fishing / diving. Great restaurants and coffee shop just minutes away.

Thank you James, Leah and your beautiful girls as well as sweet Charlie) for hosting us! It was a PERFECT weekend ..

We enjoyed our short stay so much! It sure beat driving back to Kona after a late dinner at Bamboo. So glad to finally meet you, after hearing about your wonderful hideaway from Mark, and . . . that wonderful shower! Thank you for your warm aloha.

A hui hou,
Marilyn

P.S. Sol Kitchen's chicken, rice, beans and plantains were yummy, too.

Bad-Ass Outdoor Shower

Thank you for a wonderful landing in Hawi. We enjoyed the charming accommodations: very clean, nice decor, and a bad-ass outdoor shower. All around, we had a great time here. We hate to leave.

Many Thanks!

Many thanks for a terrific time! You provided the perfect amount of "hosting" and just leaving us be. In 22 years with Kirk, the best picture of him, ever, is in that shower. All the best to you and the girls and your folks and many thanks for a wonderful bunch of memories.

Blessed be,
Kymm and Kirk
