About the property

Affordable and clean rental in paradise located close to the ocean

It is located on the first floor and includes 546 sf of living space that encompasses a living room, a bedroom with a King Cal. bed, a full bath, and exclusive outdoor patio space. There is a twin sized bed that doubles as a couch in the living room for a child or another adult.

Here you can enjoy an ocean view and breezes from the tropical trade winds. At night you will be serenaded by the sounds of the coqui frogs. The cliffs of Kaloli Point and the ocean are only a brisk 5 minute walk away. You can take in the expansive ocean views, enjoy the pleasant trade winds and watch for whales. Kaloli point is the location of an ancient Hawaiian fishing village of which you can still see evidence of this ancient village to this day.

About Maria Akagi

Counselor and practicing artist. Maria is a para-professional tutor with ESL dept. It was not by design to transform our spare room into a rental, but typical of a teacher, wanted to lend a helping hand improve the quality of life and make a positive impact on the lives of others. I built a guest room for visiting family and friends, but it became a way to provide affordable accommodations for vacationers and sincere desire to make your Hawaiian vacation experience a memorable one.

Maria Akagi purchased this studio in 2010

Why Maria Akagi chose Keaau

Many rental properties are operated by owners living on the mainland, many without in depth knowledge of the lands and people of Hawaii. Because the owner is on property, Your concerns and questions will be addressed immediately with the spirit of aloha.

What makes this studio unique

It's always nice to have a quiet, comfortable place to retreat to after a busy day of taking in new sites. We can talk story and share our traveling experiences. We will do our best to answer any questions you may have; but if you desire total privacy, we can accommodate that as well. Aloha!

Very nice place. John and Maria have thought of everything. Very well equiped.

  • 4 of 5

Nice place to get away from it all. The owners have the place well stocked. It is a quick hike to see the ocean, but no beach access just walking. The only problem is the noise coming from the upper floor, you hear everything I'm assuming due to no insulation between floors. All in all a nice place to stay, but not for a romantic getaway.

Excellent setting and very comfortable suite.

  • 5 of 5

This space had everything we needed. It was comfortable, clean, and relaxed. I would highly recommend this space to anyone looking for a staging point for big island adventures on the east side of Hawaii, including volcano national park, and Mauna Kea.

Peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

This space had absolutely everything (it seemed) that you would need while you're away on vacation. While we didn't use the kitchen space much it was much appreciated that everything we could possibly need to cook was in there.

I really enjoyed this VRBO as it felt like we were in the middle of the jungle and the sounds of the rain and coqui frogs at night were quite peaceful. One other thing I really loved about this space is that it's a short 10 minute walk to the shore. We were able to go down there and have the whole place to ourselves for a while which was really nice.

We did not get to meet the host but the check-in and check-out process was seamless.

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa for your kind words. Our mission statement is to provide our guests with all the amenities of home and it appears we accomplished that. Although we did not cross paths during your stay, we sensed you were self sufficient and valued your privacy. No problem, it's all about fulfilling your expectations of a Hawaiian vacation and helping to leave you with memorable experiences. Malama pono Ahiihou

Peaceful location; loved the music of the birds.

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were most friendly and accommodating and everything we could possibly need was available to us. The location is close to the ocean, the volcano park, and many beautiful places to explore. Very restful, comfortable, and pleasant.
