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.

We had a family emergency and needed a place to stay last minute. Keolamauloa was a perfect sanctuary for us. After a stressful day, it was nice to be in a remote area, surrounded by beautiful views and greenery. Loved the animals outside- I'm allergic to cats, but that didn't stop me from petting them a little...the chickens were adorable, and it was fun feeding the pig...I even looked forward to seeing the bullfrog (as long as he didn't jump towards me).
The upstairs neighbors were sweet - treated us to homemade cupcakes and kindly folded the laundry I had accidentally forgot in the dryer. Sally (the owner's daughter) was kind, helpful and considerate - made us fresh iced tea and plucked fresh flowers from the garden. Kaye (the owner) was always responsive and attentive to any questions I had.
If you're looking for a rustic getaway to be your temporary home, then Keolamauloa is a perfect place.
It was a nice place. I liked looking over the pond while having my morning coffee.
Charming country cottage
I really loved this cottage. I wanted a place to call home while I explored the North side of the island, and the cottage was perfect. Sally was a gracious host, who made herself available if I needed anything. The property is beautiful, full of birds, flowers and amazing smells. The cottage had everything I needed and then some. Including a lovely cat that joined me every morning for coffee at the pond. Honokaa is a little town about 5 miles north that has a market with great wine at a great price and a Redbox, restaurants, a couple bars and shops. This is a great off the beaten path place to stay.
took one of the best photos of my trip at the Waipio valley lookout at sunset!
Smoked Ahi chunks bought at 485 Lehua street just down from the market. It was so good I brought some home. A much better gift then the typical macadamia nuts.
The beds, a bit on the uncomfortable side. However, my bed at home is amazing, so I might be a bit spoiled.
Thanks again Sally, I had a great time. Say “hey” to HD.
Historic stay in Paauilo
This was the first time we stayed on this side of the island and will not be the last. It is a quiet and serene place.
Lovely quaint and charming accommodations
We loved getting away from the crowds! Thank you for having everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The hot tub was especially wonderful.
Thank you to this lovely family for choosing Keolamauloa during their Hawaii Island stay. We hope they will consider returning on their next family trip to Hamakua.
She is a person with wisdom.
What can you ask more? People who you meet is always the most important thing during our trip.
