The Hamakua House is a rustic guest house located on the south end of Hawaii's breathtaking Hamakua Coast.

This listing is for our Private King Apartment. It is the only accommodation on our property which includes a private bathroom and kitchen.

The space

The Hamakua House is off-the-grid. Being off-the-grid means that we get all of our electricity from the sun and all of our water is collected from the rain. We are not connected to the island's grid power system. Our solar panels charge a large bank of deep cycle batteries all day in order for us to have power around the clock.

Guest access

In addition to the amenities inside the apartment, guests may access our outdoor kitchen and fire pit area.

Other things to note

The sofa bed can sleep an additional two guests (for a total of four guests).

Easy check in, was greeted by Robbie and given a short tour. Very spacious studio, awesome layout! Not far from hilo. There was a little bit of noise at 6am from other tenants moving around and chatting on the lanai outside. We also had our windows open, but didn't want to close them with the others just on the other side. Would definitely stay here again though!

Great little spot in the middle of the rainforest. Had a wonderful time being out there!

For people who like to rough it, this is a great place. It's quiet for the most part and the views are beautiful. But don't expect anything except the basics and bring bug spray

A great place to experience the sounds of the jungle in a very comfortable place. Some of the best and most relaxing sleep I've ever had. The instructions were clear and the site caretaker was welcoming. Definitely one of our top stays and only wish we could've stayed longer. A definite recommendation to anyone looking to relax and reconnect. Stay also lead us to an amazing local spot in town that served awesome pastries and morning sandwiches, Mr. Ed's Bakery.

The apartment was quite spacious and true to the photos. It's not the most polished place, but it's a great value for the price and generally well kept. As other reviews state, it's not super private or quiet, since there are rooms on the next floor up and guests use common patios outdoors. But everyone was friendly and considerate. We appreciated having Netflix available on the TV. Matthew and Ray were helpful and easy to get ahold of with any questions we had.

My experience in Matthew's place was nothing short of perfect. It was an experience i can never forget. Meeting Ray I have learnt so much from him which made this experience so memorable. Thank you so much for the hospitality.

I'm an outgoing type who values the experience of travel. Airbnb helps me to afford to travel more. I love meeting new people. I actually grew up in a Bed & Breakfast so hosting seems to come very naturally to me.
