The Hamakua House is a rustic guesthouse located on the south end of Hawaii's breathtaking Hamakua Coast. Our accommodations include Private Rooms. The Hamakua Guesthouse is made up of two neighboring properties. The first offers panoramic ocean views, while the second borders the stunning Kapehu river. The two properties are located across the street from each other and all property amenities are available to all guests.
We pride ourselves on being an off-the-grid accommodation. Being off-the-grid means that we get our electricity from the sun and 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 daily in order for us to have power around the clock. Our region is the perfect place to go off-grid as it is consistently 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit at night year round. This means that air conditioning is not necessary.
We are accessible to all the major Big Island attractions. The legendary Akaka Falls State Park a short 12 minute drive around the corner. The world renowned Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens and the serene Onomea Bay is a mere 13 minute drive from us. These, can't be missed, gardens are among the world's best and the separate trail to the bay is free! The quaint area of Downtown Hilo is about a 17 minute drive to the South. It provides all of the modern amenities you will need (restaurants, supermarkets, shopping, and more). The epic Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a 1 hour drive to the South. It features unimaginable hiking trails and a lava tube cave experience. The picturesque Waipio Valley is a 1 hour drive to the North. Plus, there are countless sights and adventures along the Hamakua Coast.
