I am a Real estate agent with REMAX Properties. I was born here, raised on the east coast and have been back in Hawaii for 24 years.
We enjoy outdoor activities, nature, gardening, snorkeling and the ocean. This is the perfect place to enjoy them all!
A lot of info is not in the travel books. We will be happy to share first hand knowledge & aloha with you.
Laura Richman purchased this studio in 2008
We chose this section of the island because of the sunny weather in this area. We get more sunshine and less rain than Hilo, yet we are only 20 minutes away.
We are only ½ mile from the ocean so you can walk there and also hear the crashing surf most of the time. We have one acre of land and love to garden and grow food. I love it here! Lots of things to see and do.
Our unit is new, clean, comfortable, relaxing, and very well appointed. We enjoy some of the freshest air in the world.
There are many things that are not in the guide books and we are happy to share our first hand knowledge of the area with our guests.
When I arrived I was tired and ready for a bath and a good place to call home after a long day of travel. Laura, the owner , had already arranged things for me so that I could be comfortable and ready to use the studio even at my late hour.
The studio was very clean and nicely arranged, even in the atmosphere and energy that it inspires. I felt relaxing just by stepping in ... then the clean bathroom and tub with as much as the bubble bath available was a genuine welcoming touch.
Laura was always available and interested in making my stay pleasant and worry free. She is a very caring, loving lady and though you perceive the caring presence, she lives next door, you'll feel your privacy and space truly allowed to you. I truly felt cared for, in every sense. I had friends who were staying at nearby vacation studios and homes , but, by far, Laura' studio was the best. I was happy, happy, very happy of my choice and ... I'm planning on coming back if I am in Keaau again.
Thank you Laura, for your hospitality and service.
This place was secluded yet close to everything. Very clean and comfortable. Loved the lanai and our little fountain area. Laura was very helpful and sweet. I can't imagine a more perfect place to stay. Will definitely be back
The Dolphins' is a wonderful bright, clean, private suite. There is everything you need. It is outside of Hilo, but very easy to get around. I would absolutely recommend this lovely spot.
Lovely place to stay. Great host. Very clean and well maintained accommodation...everything you could ask for plus a few extras. Would love to stay again. All the best Laura from a couple of Aussie Travelers
This studio sized house is brand new and features everything one may need for a long stay. I enjoyed a restful time and pleasant walks to the ocean. Close to the active lava flow. I recommend Pahoa Fresh Fish for the ono and chips.
A great small unit in the garden estate. The location is quiet but no so far from Hilo and Volcano. Laura the owner was most obliging and helpful and we had some interesting conversations. While small the unit has all the required facilities for a self-sufficient stay.
Laura went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and even helped us home purchase information. We loved our stay in the clean ohana with everything we needed for a home away from home. Its very clean and comfortable. The peaceful setting was just what we needed and there's no traffic noise! If we need a place to stay in future we'll definitely choose this wonderful place.
