    The room was nice and comfortable. The shared kitchen looked well equipped although we didn’t use it. Bathroom in the main house felt clean and think we only had to share with one other room during the stay. The location is gorgeous and loved that...

    Was staying for two nights and really enjoyed the house being located in the midst of the nature. While I am not a fan of shared bathrooms I have to admit that they were really clean. Communication was excellent and I had absolutly no issues...

    Super cute place off the beaten path. Had lovely common spaces, cute cats, sweet private waterfall. Room was a good size. Love that it was completely off grid. Great breakfast included at the local bakery.

The Hamakua Guesthouse is a Bed and Breakfast offering three guest rooms in the main house. We have an open air bathroom with a stunning rainfall shower. There is also a full covered outdoor kitchen and dining area to prepare meals in. We are located in "old Hawaii" on the legendary Hamakua Heritage Coast. It is about a 15-20 minute drive to downtown Hilo from the house.
I love being here on the Big Island and I know you will too. This is truly the place to be for adventure vacationing. Hiking, horseback riding, visiting waterfalls, ziplining, discovering hidden beaches, and taking in the breathtaking views are among a few of the activities you will enjoy here.
We are located 1 mile (20 minute walk) from the quaint town of Honomu Hawaii. It's shops, galleries, and zipline are often regarded as the best on the island.
