The space

Aloha nature lovers . Located between Waipio Valley and Volcano National Park. Great hiking ! With convenient and very private pools and waterfalls to enjoy at your door step. The little cabin also has a Great ocean view to watch the ships go sailing by. Nights are wonderfull just sitting around the camp fire star gazing and telling stories. Tent camping for the kids is safe and easy. Located 20 miles north of Hilo. Just 1 mi from the highway. Very serene with only the sounds of the waterfall and wind in the trees. My two horses ( Roxxy and Shy Girl ) will be eagerly awaiting to greet you. Aloha and Happy Trials !

NOTE : Flooding may and does occur in North Hilo and on the Big Island. Please use Extreme caution when near, swimming in or crossing any waterway. 4x4 or jeep is recommended for exploring back road areas on the island and to get to my place. 4x4 is required to access Waipio Valley,Green Sands Beach and Mauna Kea. Book a cheap car then ask for a jeep up grade when you arrive for good deals on jeeps. Aloha and be Safe !

If you are looking for seclusion and quiet then Keith's place is where to be. It's off the beaten road and you definitely have a feel for nature. Its a beautiful property with waterfalls and horses. It was a great experience to try the whole living off the grid, but staying for a few days was long enough. Slight problem with rats/mice. You can hear them scurrying across the kitchen counter which was a little unnerving.

Could not have picked a better place to stay on the big island. The cabin was clean and comfortable, and the surroundings were beautiful. I highly recommend that those who stay here allot themselves a full day just to explore the property. There is a waterfall just down a nearby path, and according to Keith plenty of gorgeous hikes upstream and just over the fence on the far side of the property. The horses, peahens, and chickens were friendly enough to take some treats from us without being all up in your business (though I wouldn't have minded if they were). Keith was very helpful and thoughtful. He provided us with tons of info once we got there about the cabin itself as well as activities to do on the island. My only regret was that we didn't spend nearly enough time here. All the more reason to come back!

Wow. What a fantastic little piece of heaven. It is definitely roughing it if you only travel to five star resorts. But for us it was perfect. The views were stunning; listening to nature was lovely and a trip (we live in Manhattan); the cabin is equipped to do some cooking and I highly recommend picking up some groceries. Coffee and breakfast in the AM looking out at the ocean was pure bliss. The same can be said for wine and cheese in the PM! Ps: get groceries in Hilo. WAY CHEAPER. Getting to the cabin was pretty straightforward; we did it during the day. Once you do it, it's easy to get back and forth. Jeep or truck is necessary. The outdoor shower was wonderful. We wandered a little bit on the property and enjoyed the private waterfalls. The location was good for us to spend a lot of time at Volcano National Park; the reason we were on that side of the island. And we easily spent time north and some west-side as well. If we had had more time we would have ventured over to Kona. Next time! I highly recommend Keith's place. It's the perfect little adventure on this magnificent island.

This property is fairly breathtaking, with views to ocean and great old trees, secluded in the mountain. You have to be ready for a dicey road but our economy rental made it just fine.

This place is amazing. Sort of like glamping, be prepared to not have walls! Very clean though, and the bathroom is the best part. It is pretty cool for peacocks to walk by while you shower. Love the animals, the stars, the views, etc. Definitely the coolest and most off-the-grid place I've stayed

Keith's sanctuary is an invaluable lodging option if you appreciate an off-the-grid, somewhat rustic, real big island experience with nature. The peacocks, chickens, horses and private waterfalls are just incredible. You definitely need a 4WD vehicle and an interest in cooking because it's not quick or easy to drive in and out of the property to the nearest general store or to town. The cabin was clean with stunning views of the property and ocean. The furniture, linens and decor were dated and left some to be desired, but the wilderness and serenity make up for it. The outdoor bathroom and shower are lovely, just be sure to ask if the hot water is working. Our experience was that of intermittent hot water. Keith and his property managers were responsive, kind and communicative. I highly recommend this secluded paradise as an amazing alternative to other traditional places to stay on the island! Mahalo Keith, Tai & Matt! :)
