“This beautiful 3 bedroom 2 bath home has every thing you need in your home away from home. Granite counters and teak cabinets and an open layout make it a retreat to rest after a long day sightseeing. The backyard is surrounded by an Ohia forest, creating a place of serenity and privacy while cooling off in the in- ground pool. In the evening light up a fire in the outdoor fire pit and enjoy roasting marshmallows while gazing at the stars.

The home is located just 2 blocks from the ocean, where you can walk along the cliffs and trails. In the winter whale watching on the cliffs is a popular local past time.

The nearby historic towns of Kea`au and Pahoa both have restaurants, grocery stores and farmers markets. The snorkeling areas in Kapoho, the hot ponds and the lava viewing area in Kalapana are all with in 20-30 minutes from the home.

The open layout and design of the home makes it accessible for wheel chair guests.”

About Maureen Gapp

Lived on the Big Island for 20 years.

We live just down the street and absolutely love this beautiful secluded area.

Maureen Gapp purchased this house in 2010

Why Maureen Gapp chose Keaau

The privacy is important as well as being in the 'sun belt'. This lot was so unique as it backed up to a beautiful forest of Ohia. The natural wall prevents any neighbors from being behind us, so the privacy is amazing.

What makes this house unique

Peace and tranquility. My favorite thing to do is to light a campfire and watch the stars. The area is mostly vacation homes and private homes so it's great to be able to walk or bike around withour any traffic.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is always such a great pleasure when renting a vacation resort to find that it exceeds expectations. We had a wonderful time on the Hilo side of the island and your home is part of our enjoyment. Nice, clean, very spacious, warm pool, we have fond memories of our trip to the Big Island thanks to the comfort of your home. Regards, Eric & family

The Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 5 wonderful days at this home in early July. Arranging for the rental was simple and Maureen was great to work with. The condition of the home, its layout, the pool, yard, and location were all excellent. Our daily morning runs down Beach Road and Paradise Ala Kai followed by coffee on the Lanai were the perfect start to each day. The home was an ideal location to base our adventures on the East and South sides of the Big Island (ranging from Waipio Valley to Volcano National Park). We also spent 5 days on the Kona side of the island, but with 10 days we still had dozens of sites that we were unable to see. I guess we will have to start planning our return trip. We will certainly consider renting this home again and if we know of anyone headed to the Big Island we will definitely recommend this home as a place to stay. Thanks Maureen!

This is our second staycation here!!! It is close to home yet feels far away! The pool is definitely a highlight because the water is cool yet warm at times which allows for night time swimming under the stars. Thank you Maureen for another fabulous staycation...looking forward to many more!

Spectacular vacation rental!!!

  • 5 of 5
We are a local family from the islands of Molokai and Maui who stayed for 3 nites at this beautiful villa. Every room in this home is beautifully decorated. The king sized bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable and having a walk-in closet was a plus. Having the use of a laundry facility made for easy laundering especially when having wet clothes after using the awesome salt water pool. This home was very clean and well kept. All of the kitchen appliances were in good working order and it was nice to use a dish washer which I never had the opportunity to use until now. Maureen is very accommodating when problems arise, we had quick response which was much appreciated. The only suggestion I would have is to change the full size bed to a queen bed. We are already talking about returning to this vacation rental the next time we're in Hilo. The photos on the website does not do this place justice, this is a real gem set in a very lush tropical garden. We loved every minute while we were there and was sad to leave. It was pretty warm, but once the windows are opened up and the ceiling fans are on, it gets a lot better. There are so many extras in this home like beach toys, beach towels, bikes, games, cards, dvds and books for your enjoyment. I would highly recommend this vacation rental. We had a wonderful time with family and a few friends and will cherish the family memories we made at your beautiful villa...Mahalo Nui Loa! John, Maureen and Tiana

Absolutely PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our adult family of 6 stayed here for 8 glorious days! The house is so amazing! I knew instantly we had picked the right home when everyone oohed and aawed at every room! The size and beauty is not truly reflected in the pictures. We had room to spare! The owners have thought of every need from the kitchen to the pool and beach! A bag of Hawaiian coffe on the counter was such a treat! We brought our own snorkel gear but lost a snorkel and broke a goggle... No problem because there is a tote of snorkel gear in the garage! Along with other beach gear and chairs! A quick morning run to the cliffs and the whales were breeching right in front of us! The pool is clean, fully functioning and refreshing! We Had a wonderful time exploring the island but didn't want to leave the house! The frogs put us to sleep every night! This is a must experience home and a gauranteed return for our family!!

Relaxing on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here 8 nights and had the perfect little getaway. The house is very private with plenty of space in every way. The house was very clean when we arrived and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The pool was awesome - especially since the east side of the island is short on beaches, it was nice to get into the water daily. We spent a lot of time grilling poolside in between short trips around the area to see the sights and surrounding towns.

We hiked the trail to Shipman beach just down the road. We took the more challenging trail along the shoreline, but were rewarded stumbling across old rocks walls and a WWII bunker. Our hike paid off when we reached Shipman Beach - a beautiful spring-feed beach all to ourselves. There were sea turtles sunning themselves on the rocks just a few yards from the sandy lagoon where you can swim. The trail back was an easier hike through the rain forest.

When we learned that Volcanoes Park was open 24 hours, we figured there must be a pretty good reason and we weren't disappointed. When you go at night, especially if it's your first time at a volcano, it makes it much more mysterious and awe inspiring. As you drive into the park, you see the glow and realize the gravity of the landscape. Our trip back during the day was awesome too - walking through lava tubes and over lava flows was unforgettable.

The house is short drive to groceries, airport and restaurants. We enjoyed Pahoa and Hilo very much as well. We would highly recommend this house to anyone who wants a private rural feel with plenty of what you need close by...

Owner's Response: Scott thanks for your detailed review. I hike the coast a lot and will have to look harder for the bunker you mentioned. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you here again. Aloha

A Nice Break From Most Hectic Vacations

  • 5 of 5
For us, having lots of areas to drive to and explore was VERY important. As was the right house to rent! Even more important when you are there for a full six weeks.
Truly a wonderful home in a very private and special location on this the East side, of the Big Island. We had a few special "must haves" and this home provided everything we could have asked for. Those of you with any mobility issues or who require the use of a wheelchair will definitely appreciate the open floor plan/space, this home has to offer.
The salt water swimming pool was very clean and well maintained. Was nice not to have to worry about any Chlorine issues or burning eyes in the pool.
Access to all the local amenities does require a car rental but you wouldn't visit the Big Island in our opinion without one. Not to say that you couldn't just hold up and relax by the pool everyday if that's what you wanted in a vacation! THIS would be a perfect home to do just that as well!
Bottom line: Great value and the quality throughout this home is just as the owners project on this website.
The perfect venue to relax and has provided us with some great material for our second book!
