Paauilo Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom Cabin On 2 Acres Of Land In Rural Hamakua

Relax and rejuvenate in Hamakua. We are located between the town of Hilo and the beaches on the Kona coast. Paauilo is a great location to stay if you want to explore the Hamakua coast and anywhere on the northern side of the island. Honokaa and Waipio Valley are very close by. A scenic drive on Hwy 19 will take you to Hilo to the east, or Kamuela, Hawi and a choice of beautiful beaches to the west.

Our private cabin has its own 2 acres of land in upcountry Paauilo. Quiet and peaceful, it's a perfect place to relax and unwind. Small country roads invite long walks and cool evenings offer good sleeping temperatures. In the morning wake to the sounds of birds chattering while you enjoy your coffee outside. Paauilo is still truly out of the busy tourists areas and offers a taste of old Hawaii.

10-15 minutes away is the historic town of Honokaa, with restaurants, shopping, a small grocery store and a beautifully renovated movie theater that offers first run movies and live music.Honokaa has also recently started having a monthly 'First Friday'. The first Friday of every month the stores stay open late & there is live music, lots of great food and even a fashion show. It's a fun, local event that's definitely worth checking out if you're here on a First Friday night.

Accommodations at our cabin include one full bedroom with a queen size bed, a full bath, a full kitchen and laundry facilities. We even are lucky enough to have on site professional massages available in the cabin - unwind even more after a long day at the beach. This is a cozy house, a wonderful place to welcome you home after a day at the beach or sightseeing. Our cabin is clean and bright, with lots of windows. It's a great place to tuck away and simply enjoy the beauty of the Hawaii.

Why Diane Higham chose Paauilo

We have lived on this property for almost 30 years. That is so hard to believe! It is true that time flies when you're having fun. We actually fell into this place kind of by accident, not knowing anything about the island when we moved here. Lucky us as we love living in Paauilo and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. We've raised our children here and about 10 years ago built the cabin. We have been renting it but it has been open for a few months while we had different friends come and stay. We found that it made us so happy to have visitors enjoying Paauilo too that we decided to offer it as a vacation rental. We actually live on the 3 acres adjacent to the cabin property. Both places have their own private space as we built the cabin on the other side of a small macadamia nut orchard. This orchard needs a lot of work from us as it's aging and growing over, but in the meantime it provides lovely privacy.

What makes this cabin unique

We love Paauilo for many reasons. We love that when it's incredibly hot in the summer in Kona we can go home to some cooler air in the evening; that we can spend a morning or an afternoon at some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and that nearby Honokaa provides movies and restaurants when we don't want to cook. We love the outdoor beauty, the sunshine through the trees, the slowness of a walk on a country road - and the commute to work is only 15 minutes and without a single stoplight! Our friends that visit tell us they really enjoy that we're between Kona and Hilo so they can go touring in either direction. I think that's a good point. This really is a big island and less driving is always good! People who have stayed in the cabin also tell us that it feels like a retreat from their regular life - quiet and peaceful. It helped them relax. That's how we feel about it too. A great place to come home to. It makes us really happy to have visitors in our cabin enjoying their own getaway in Hawaii.

As for the house, we really hope you'll like it. We keep it very clean and well maintained. With a full kitchen, bath, bedroom and laundry it's a pretty cozy cabin.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this beautiful & peaceful property. The cabin was well-equipped, bright and comfortable. Having complete privacy was a definite highlight. An added bonus was that the owners live on the neighboring acreage, so whenever we needed suggestions on where to go or what to see, they were extremely friendly & helpful.

Spent a week at this Country Cabin, 40 miles from Hilo. The perfect place to relax in the country. Could not have asked for better hosts. They anticipate your every need and anything you request they will do their best to accommodate you. Would highly recommend it!
