About This Listing
Papa’Aloa is the ultimate in dream vacation spots! Located on the beautiful and historical Hamakua coast only 25 miles north of Hilo, Papa’Aloa is perched on this historic 1 acre with an oceanfront location that is second to none. What we consider to be the last of the old Hawaii, this is absolutely the perfect location for exploring both the east and the west sides of our island!
The home was dramatically designed - Bali style architecture with its soaring bamboo ceilings and built with that perfect indoor/outdoor lifestyle in mind that Hawaii is known for. There are 3 private large master suites all with king size beds, lovingly decorated with their own en suite bathrooms and mini bars. Two of the master suites open up to the grand lanai/courtyard that faces the ocean and the pool. The 3rd master suite is downstairs with its own private entrance. There is even a private outdoor shower! Why not?! You’re in Hawaii!!!
Push open those gorgeous glass bi fold doors and open up your living area to those incredible ocean trade winds and again to the grand lanai/courtyard that faces the beautiful blue Pacific ocean! The kitchen in the main living area with it’s gorgeous granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances welcomes you to all of the island cooking that you would like to do. Don’t want to cook indoors, then grill up some of that great island catch on our charcoal BBQ grill. Enjoy covered outdoor dining on the grand ocean view lanai listening to the water cascading in the mermaid fountain. Don’t forget, there’s a pool to exercise or just relax in, again, ocean side! How incredible is this?
Whether you are just 2 traveling or a group of 8, Papa’Aloa will envelope you in the old world charm of the Big Island with all of the modern conveniences that you would expect of a home of this caliber. Come stay with us. We’re awaiting your arrival.

In general, the house was great. It's very nice and has everything you'd want. I'll start with the positive:
-Three master bedrooms with their own baths. Nice ceiling fans. Comfy beds. Lovely bathrooms, a nice kitchen, side-by-side fridge and my fave was the outdoor shower! The yard was nice and the view was incredible. Loved the WiFi (a must, because there's no cell service that far out in the country) The kitchenettes in each room were also a nice touch.
Things that we wish we had known:
- Ants. They're everywhere in the house. On the walls. On the floor. In the bedrooms. In the kitchen. I guess it's part of living in the tropics, but be prepared.
- The pool isn't an inground pool. It's an above-ground lap pool that's about 4-5 feet deep and not heated. We were there a week and didn't use it once, unfortunately. Had it been heated, we would have.
- This house has a lovely ocean view, but no ocean access. And it's very very isolated, which can be a good thing or a bad thing (no stores or shops nearby, no ocean access nearby, high cliffs everywhere). You really have to drive to get anywhere.
In all, we had a great time. I hope this review will be helpful to others.
Beautiful home and lovely surroundings. We truly enjoyed our stay.
The home's location is centrally located to take day trips to both the north and south side of the island as well as see several local sights of interest. Favorite parts of the home were at night looking up and seeing the stars. Truly amazing.

There are 7 different zip line companies from Hilo to our house. That is because it is the most picturesque area youll ever get a chance to zip line over, we highly recommend it. Read reviews first.Old Mamalahoa Hwy Laupāhoehoe HI 96764
