Located just three miles north of downtown Hilo, right next to Honolii beach park and surf spot, the small plantation style neighborhood of Paukaa has just what your looking for in a clean, comfortable, quite place to stay. Growing up, and living on the Big Island, I was always drawn to this area.
The room I have to offer has a queen size bed, and the common bathroom for the guest is adjacent to that, complete with walk in shower. There is a great view from the lanai entering the house ,with an ocean view to one side and a pasture view on the other side. I live in the master bedroom on the other end of the house and have my own private bath and shower, so the common bathroom is primarily for guests in the house and general use.
The kitchen is at the heart of this home, and is fully accessible for use by guests. The large island in the kitchen is the hub of all kitchen entertaining, but feel free to relax out on the lanai, or find a couch to kick back and enjoy a cold drink or snack. If that's the case,you might as well put in a load of laundry, found downstairs. Wi-fi is also available
Sitting at the top of a small paved road, the property backs up against a large plot of land formerly used for sugar cane, but now provides grazing land for a few goats and some cows in the distance. Look the other way from the pasture view on the lanai, and you see the ocean, and the sunrise view.
Part of the "old Mamaloha Highway" is still used as a scenic drive,or walk, to the local beach park of Honolii, just around the corner.This short and beautiful adventure to the beach takes you over several old bridges and provides great waterfall views of the Honolii stream,and the smaller creeks that feed into it.
Attention to detail was considered in many aspects to the home, as many skilled craftsmen helped me during the construction of the house several years ago. My intension was to always have a place for friends and visitors to stay and enjoy this beautiful home, and this great area that it is nestled in. Thanks, and hope to meet you soon, Jeremiah
A rental car is needed to reach my place, as public transportation doesn't stop near my place.
General respect of others in the neighborhood are key to enjoying this space. Parking in the appropriate places allows people to come and go without hassle.
Please listen to music, but keep it at decent levels, and keep it quiet by 10pm.
No smoking in the house or on lanai,downstairs
Laundry area is used by many, rules are posted
A spacious clean room and bathroom
In a peaceful location about 5 mins drive from town and near the surf beach. I would definitely stay again it is great value for money and having bella around was a bonus!
Jeremiah wasnt there when i arrived but he had great communication and it wasnt a problem at all. Parking was easy and for me as an independent no frills traveller it was perfect.
Thank you Jeremiah for a relaxing and easy stay.
We felt very welcome and comfortable sharing your home and so had a terrific time staying in Hilo on Big Island.
Your location is fantastic for visitors with a countryside feeling yet close to the surf and town.
We enjoyed both your and Bella's company and appreciated all your excellent sightseeing tips.
We were very busy and ended up driving 1,100miles around the island doing and seeing everything!

Access to the house and room was very straightforward and we were able to come and go with ease. We met Jeremiah who made us feel welcome and had a short conversation when we arrived. As he works we barely saw him after that. His dog was a great host as well!
A decent and comfortable place to stay in Hilo. It was about 10 minutes drive to downtown. The host was nice and attentive to my needs. No hesitation to recommend this place.
We had a great time during our brief 3 night stay at Jeremiah's home. It was centrally located to all of our outdoor adventures around the Hilo area. He and his dog Bella were as friendly as can be. His home is well kept and we enjoyed the quiet that it afforded. It was a nice change of pace after our stay in the Waikoloa area earlier in the week. We couldn't have asked for a better place to wrap up our Big Island adventure.

Jeremiah is very nice, his place is convenient and clean. He share a lot of surfing experience to us which we really appreciated. Unfortunately this time, Adam hurt his back first day when we came Hawaii, If there is any chance we be here again,we will stay in Jeremiah's house again.
My wife and I had a great time at Jeremiah's place, it is very conveniently located close to Hilo and the house itself has all the amenities you could ask for. Jeremiah let us use his kitchen and he came across as very friendly and cool. Hilo itself is beautiful and we really enjoyed the town and the local attractions.

I grew up here on the Big Island and in the Sierras of Northern California, enjoying the best of both worlds. Hawaii has been my home for well over twent five years and I still enjoy exploring the island and find new adventures. I surf close to home at Honolii, and keep busy with several woodworking projects at various places around the east side of the island. I love to travel, mostly in the south pacific so far. I like good food, good people and good wine
