Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Keolamauloa, a historic family property, was built in the 1930's and is located 37 miles north of Hilo, at the cool 1800 ft. elevation in Paauilo Mauka.

It was originally developed in the 1930’s as a coffee farm. As a center of community life, this property included a family-run general store. Japanese movies were shown in the garage to homestead families and friends. The strength and resourcefulness of this family have inspired those who followed. Even now, their children and grandchildren continue to return to the home to find rest and to remember.

The verdant pasture lands and old family homesteads are evidence of the area’s rich agricultural and cattle ranching history. Today, our family works and plays on this small family farm and share a vision of sustainable living. We grow wholesome food and minimize our environmental impact by using eco-friendly practices. The grounds are abundant with native trees, chickens, and the family pet pig who loves to be fed. The ocean is viewed from the backyard.

The accommodation is the lower part of the larger home. It features quiet comfort with the soothing sound of small waterfalls. Guests will enjoy a private entrance, full kitchen/bathroom and 2 bedrooms – each with a double bed. A futon can be used for extra guests. Keolamauloa will welcome you home, whether you have traveled a few miles to Kalopa State Park, historic Honoka’a town and Waipio Valley, or taken a day trip to Kohala and the Kona Coast or to Hilo and the Volcano.

About Kaye Lundburg

I grew up in rural Eastern Oklahoma. After college city life called and I was off to Denver, LA and Honolulu. But country was really home to me and i moved to the Big Island and have been in rural Hamakua for many years.

Kaye Lundburg purchased this house in 1984

Why Kaye Lundburg chose Paauilo

Finding a old homestead in Paauilo 25 years ago was full of possibilities. Restoring 80 year old buildings and reclaiming land that was overgrown from years of neglect was daunting but was a project for a growing family Today KEOLAMAULOA is a family treasure.

What makes this house unique

Today our family strives to live simply and sustainably on our 4 acre homestead. We have abundant organic vegetables and eggs and take great satisfaction in reclaiming a native forest and wildlife habitat. Guests enjoy the quiet relaxation of this country home. Soaking in the hot tub, walking through the forest, feeding the pig are just of few of the delights of a farmstay at KEOLAMAULOA.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The rental was spacious, private, very comfortable and well-stocked with far more amenities than we expected. We especially liked all the books on the history of the Hamakua Coast, which gave us a special perspective on the region as well as the history of the property itself. When booking, we somehow missed the fact that the rental also includes exclusive use of a large wooden hot tub and outdoor shower, which was a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed taking walks on the upcountry roads amid the lush green forest. The owners were very kind and accommodating, and the kitties who live on the farm are soooo sweet. Our son enjoyed feeding leftovers to the pig! Lots of fun!

An incredible experience

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I have stayed before, for a 3 month period. It’s a beautiful homestead and the suit downstairs is just lovely and very comfy. This property was loveingly and respectfully restored from its previous owners with tribute to their story. The owner Kaye is an exceptional person who takes a lot of pride in her homestead. Aloha

Paradise on earth!

  • 5 of 5

Simply stunning property way out in the countryside. We were welcomed and given a tour and history of Keolamauloa.We were so comfortable for the three nights we stayed. The apartment is large and beautifully furnished with every comfort needed. The beds are so welcoming. The lanai has a fabulous hot tub and grill area. There are mini lights to set the mood and comfortable chairs. You will love walking the property and enjoy the flowers, fruits and the chickens and even a pig! He loves compost😊. There aren’t enough words to describe this remarkable stay. Come and enjoy.

Peaceful green getaway

  • 4 of 5

This is a spacious and old fashioned retreat space among the giant trees with a unique hot tub and friendly hosts. Greenery and a very quiet road to walk near Kalopa is restoring after some intense beach days.

Homestead stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and Kaye was very helpful in making sure that we found our way there. Her daughter met us and showed us around to make sure that we knew where everything was. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the country atmosphere. We especially enjoyed the DVDs that she had on farming and the books she had. I was surprised and delighted that there was a hot tub and enjoyed that as well. I would suggest that the hot tub be cleaned, there was a lot of sediment in it. I loved walking down to feed the pig. As a whole it was a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a quiet homestead atmosphere.
