Why Toni Annette Hatch chose Keaau

We chose this home for so many reasons. First for the peaceful setting, away from the city noises and traffic. Also the location, remote but easily accessible to all East side activities and destinations. Having our own private well with the best water on the island was and still is a very special treat. Our home contains a separate private detached guest studio with a private garden view that allows us to share our unique space with others. We fell in love at first site. We know you will too.

What makes this studio unique

We love the views, the cool trade wind breezes, the expanse and privacy of the two landscaped acres with private botanical surroundings. Falling asleep to the tropical sounds and waking to the sunrise and birds singing. Swimming in our pool anytime day or night, and showers in our enclosed outdoor shower. Feeding the koi in the mornings. Evening walks around the 2 acres to check on our fruit trees. Enjoying Island coffee in the mornings and island drinks in the evenings. A vacation retreat of our very own.

This review is way overdue. I've never written a review and I'm kinda reluctant to share info about this awesome spot but it's deserving. What a great surprise this cottage was the first time I found this gem while on a business trip in May 2014. When I came back to the island with my wife in Aug 2014, I knew I wanted to stay there again.

If you want a place that is quite, relaxing, restful, peaceful, CLEAN, with great host (Toni and Kim)...this is the spot. The property (beautiful) has lots of open space, no neighbor "on top" of you, and an awesome pool. Toni and Kim make you feel like part of the family, not just a tenants, all the while respecting your space. I will stay there annually on my business trips to the Big Island, no more hotels for me.

Incredible - Exactly What We Wanted - Highly Recommend This Property

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a peaceful relaxing setting for the second week of our Hawaiian Holiday. We got far more than we expected. Their property is delightful, beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed all the different types of fruit trees and other exotique trees on the grounds. Had so much fun feeding and watching the Koi in their pond, swimming in our own private swimming pool and being able to BBQ on our own patio. Wow - it was fantastic! Toni and Kim are warm hospitable hosts and we are very thankful for their friendship. We didn't want to leave and definitely want to return. Ronnie and Marie

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to write such a great review. We enjoyed meeting you both. What was awesome for us was how much you enjoyed yourselves here. You left refreshed, rested and happy. Best of all we now have new friends. Looking forward to seeing you on another visit in the future. Aloha Nui Loa Kim & Toni

Most Amazing Place Evar!

  • 5 of 5

I should have written this review when we first got home, but got so busy and I wanted to put much thought into the review. We were really hesitant to rent this now that the main house is occupied. But, this turned out to be the best place we've ever stayed! The price is incredible! You won't find a better price. It was close to the ocean for me to go fishing. We are used to staying at homes near the ocean with a pool that cost a lot of money. This has the most amazing pool we've seen, right near the ocean and dirt cheap! The owners are some of the greatest people I've met. The accommodations, I was worried would be too small. But there was more than enough room, and the ohana was more thought out than any place we've stayed. Quiet location. You cannot find any place better than this. Not only did we have an incredible time just hanging out here, but we've found fabulous friends in Kim and Toni! Malama pono and peace!

We had the honor of being Toni & Kim's last renter's of their amazing home and property. We couldn't believe the size and comfort of the house when we arrived, I don't think we even put our things away and we had to go check out the pool. We were there for 2 incredible weeks and had a chance to tour a big portion of the island but we spent the majority of our time soaking up the sun in the pool and on the large sundeck around the pool. This is the perfect location for a couple who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of a resort setting and enjoy the peace and quiet (at least during the day) of a beautiful country setting.

It took a little bit of getting used to the frogs serenading us every night and the roosters waking us up each morning, but with everything else the house has to offer, we could put up with the sounds of nature.

Was really great getting to know Toni & Kim, what a great couple they are. We got to spend a couple evenings with them over drinks and snacks getting tips on the local sites to visit, and learning a bit of their background and family. We were really disappointed that we had lost track of time as we were going to spend what we though was our last night hanging out with them having drinks and playing games. Unfortunately, we realized part way through the day that we actually had to fly out that night. we had to just leave a note and didn't get to give them a proper thanks for all their hospitality.

We will definitely be going back once they have finished renovating the studio and look forward to reconnecting with our new friends!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. It is guests like you who become new friends that make our place special. We both look forward to your return so we can continue our friendship and next time give you a proper farewell. the Garden Guest Studio will be ready by end of July and pictures will be posted. It is much quieter in there at night because it has windows you can close. ;0) We will keep in touch. Everyone enjoyed the game you left us at our housewarming party. Lots of fun. Mahalo and Aloha Nui Loa. Your new friends Kim and Toni

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here, even though it was short. We had the opportunity to stay in the main house, which I understand will no longer be rented. What we really loved about this place was how CLEAN and well stocked it was. So even though we did not stay in the studio, I would recommend this property based on how well kept and clean it is. The owners are very nice and generous to share their home. This rental certainly allowed us to relax in a "home away from home". The added bonus was a nice relaxing afternoon spent by the pool and the close proximity to Volcano park. We also really enjoyed exploring the PUNA district coast. We ate in 2/3 nights, but would recommend the Hilo Bay Cafe for nice dinner.

wonderful in every way

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property with even more lovely owners. Toni & Kim could not have been more hospitable, respectful of our privacy, and easy to deal with. The property itself was excellent, more space than we needed, and we were very comfortable our entire stay here. I would not hesitate to rent from them again, and if returning to Big Island this would be my preferred stay. Thanks!

We are centrally located approximately 20 minutes to most all of the numerous East side attractions. Hilo town, only 20 minutes away is a charming mix of old and new Hawaii where you will find unique shops, restaurants, a theater, boutiques, a museum, a large Farmer's Market with lots of fresh produce, flowers, local art, jewelry and gifts. Hilo is also near Richardson's Beach and other beautiful beaches where you can snorkel and surf. The Hamakua Coast is a remarkable drive. Be sure to stop along the way to visit the Botanical Gardens, Akaka Falls, and on up the coast to Waipio Valley. Kapoho Tide Pools on the Puna Coast has some phenomenal snorkeling and hot ponds. We are just a 10-15 minute walk to Kaloli Point where you will find hiking trails along the cliffs or just sit and relax and watch the waves or even try your hand at fishing. No matter which way you turn there are many new and exciting adventures and beautiful places to explore. Don't forget your camera.

Other Activities: Swimming, Kayaking, hiking, jogging, hot ponds, Farmer's Markets, stand up paddle boarding, body boarding, surfing, helicopter rides, fishing.

Golf: Hilo Municipal Golf Course opened in 1951 and was built on 146 acres of former sugarcane plantation fields. Given the frequent rains common in the Hilo area, this Big Island golf course abounds with a variety of beautiful trees including banyan, monkey pod, eucalyptus, coconut palms, hibiscus, and shower trees.

You'll notice you won't find a single sand bunker anywhere on this course because of Hilo's consistent wet weather. Surprisingly, Hilo Municipal has been the home to many of Hawaii's state champions with more likely to come.

18 holes Par 71 Very affordable and is the favorite choice among locals.
