Discover What You Can Do Here

There are just a few places remaining that retain the qualities of rural Hawaii. An island lifestyle, undeveloped coastlines, and lots of space to be yourself. The district of Ka’u is unique because it offers these things without sacrificing important essentials. With broadband service and online shopping, we often find that trips to town are mostly focused on the occasional Costco run. This is a special opportunity to actually make a comfortable living in peaceful setting.

Location As A Positive

We developed our market around our central location to the two most visited National Parks on Hawaii Island with added emphasis on our local options for scenic drives and hiking. Our locally sourced branding and the ability to offer dinner in the evening has been instrumental in making our location a plus in the reservation making decision.
