Ground floor studio apartment under Beautiful kamaaina home centrally located in Hilo. Walk to downtown Hilo bayfront, University, restaurants, & shopping. Basic kitchen, access to extensive library, reading room, cable TV, HBO, WIFI, parking.

The Space

This is a wonderful little studio on the ground floor with its own private entrances opening into a fenced yard.
I often host the same scientists over and over, and they feel this is their home when returning to Hilo. We love making new friends, and the conversation here is never boring.

Oh! And the avocados! If you hit it right, there are amazing butter pear avocados.

So, whether you are here to practice your Argentine Tango, outfit a simulated Martian expedition, write a retrospective, coordinate a film crew, adapt optical instruments for telescopes, study climate change, practice yoga or simply relax and read a good book (or a dozen!) .... it is helpful to have resources on-site that can assist you with navigating your Big Island experience.

The house upstairs has three bedrooms and sleeps eight comfortably in real beds, plus additional futons are available. It is possible to request the entire house, if available. Contact us for further info.

  • I immediately felt at home in my spacious, airy room. Everything was provided, and my housemates were delightful. Robin thoughtfully provided morning refreshment during my stay, and although I was out and about most of my visit, it was easy to stay in touch with her at all times. She was very accommodating of my goofy schedule, and her flexibility helped to speed up the decompression/de-stressing aspect of my stay on the island. I look forward to a return to the Big Island and Robin's hospitality in the near future!

    Response from Robin:

    Maybe during your next visit we get to spend more time getting acquainted!
    I'm glad you enjoyed Hilo, it really has a charm all its own and can be a wonderful place to live. Who knows when you may be back!
    Until next time!
