Property Description

The Hamakua House is a rustic guest house located on the south end of Hawaii's breathtaking Hamakua Coast. Make your next getaway greener by staying in this off-the-grid house. Our house is 'off-the-grid' which means that we get all of our electricity from the sun and all of 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 all day in order for us to have power around the clock. The Hamakua Coast (Hawaii's 'green' side of the island) is the perfect place for an adventure vacation.

Easily accessible to all the Big Island attractions such as Volcanoes National Park (1 hour South), Waipio Valley (1 hour North), and the countless sights and adventures along the Hamakua Coast, the Hamakua House is the perfect location to base your Big Island adventure vacation. Located about 9 miles (13 minutes drive) North of Hilo (Hawaii's second largest city), the Hamakua House is remote and peaceful, while still being a short drive to amenities such as stores, restaurants, and galleries.

We offer a series of private (double occupancy) rooms with shared baths great for couples, individuals, or families. Shared bathroom with shower and tub. Access: our full kitchen, the common room (with a Netflix TV), our common dining room, our washing machine (hang dry clothes), and free WiFi.

A great way to try something really different and off the grid camping feel. Very isolated and Houston (the host) gave up on helping me find the location and put me to a voice mailbox (that was full). 😞 Area is very beautiful, waterfalls and nearby tropical drives, close enough to Hilo, with a fun waterfront shopping area to explore and a great little market. Mahalo!

Thank you so so much for an incredible time. The staff were exceptional, the hammocks were super comfy and it was truly a once in a lifetime experience. If you are thinking about it, just book it! Sleeping listening to the nature around you was so relaxing and amazing. The facilities were so amazing and the property was spotless. Such great value for money :) can’t wait to come back

A really special place, very charming and idyllic. The hammocks are extremely comfortable, and the staff was all very friendly! It's definitely a bit remote and on some rough road, about 20 minutes to Hilo, but just fine with a car (which you'll need anyway on Big Island). Your GPS might lie to you and tell you to turn in on a road further away from the property than needed - there's a closer turn-in!
