This brand new studio unit has all the conveniences and class of modern day living, situated within the charm of Old Hawaii. Nestled along the coastal bluffs of the sweet and slow village of Papa'aloa, guests can explore the island, then return to the comforts of an ocean view, chic kitchen, air-conditioning, king size bed and perhaps a movie or a session with the Wi-fi. A stroll in the vibrant neighborhood offers guests the natural beauty and local family living reflective of true Hawaii.
In a wing of a more than one hundred year old plantation building, this rental was recently renovated to accommodate a five star world traveler who enjoys being off the beaten track. Immerse yourself in the history of the plantation era. Take a walk to the cliff-side viewing of a fifty foot waterfall plunging into the ocean, a bridge over a year round stream teeming with bamboo, bananas, breadfruit, coconuts and avocado to name a few botanical delights, and the community tennis courts, gym swimming pool, and ball field are within walking distance.
We call it Hale Ohana because this is where our extended family stay when they visit. And because you may choose to stay and explore the island thrguide our connections. We can guide you on adventures from the mountains to the oceans and the farms, villages and rivers in between. Hidden hiking trails, secret waterfall swims, paragliding, diving, spearfishing, beekeeping, sailing and motorcycle riding are some of our closest friends and family members skills and services.
Our most satisfied guests have explored the island by day and been grateful to return home to the clean and comfortable tranquility of the studio at night.
