Hilo, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
Enter the magnificent Royal Palm lined drive and experience Big Island history. Enjoy the unique ambiance of this one of a kind grounds of the former Ola’a Sugar Plantation residence and its directors cottage, now the guest house.
It has been completely and tastefully restored. The floors and walls are still preserved in the original 120-year-old redwood and it has been refurbished with new tropical island and teak furnishing. It features two twin master bedrooms, both with queen-sized beds, with wood and marble bathrooms. It also includes a fully equipped kitchen with all appliances.
From the verandah you enjoy the expanse of a large front lawn with the swimming pool and a view of the Pacific Ocean in the distance.

We stayed at the Guesthouse at Olaliuli historic estate and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The house has two large bedrooms and bathrooms- plenty of room. Upon arriving, we were greeted with a beautiful flower arrangement. The guesthouse is surrounded by trees and I was lulled off to sleep each night with the sounds of frogs, crickets...

Reviewed 4 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed here at the end of Feb and loved our time here. The two master bedrooms are large and accommodating, each with it's own full bath. The guest house is a bit removed from the road and the 10 acre property is lovely to walk around with tall palms, and tropical trees to protect you from the elements. There...

This is a beautiful historic property surrounded by nature, rain forest, amazing flowers, quiet and calming, but also close to shopping and restaurants. The guesthouse is renovated and lovely decorated. When we came, Gisella had put beautiful flower arrangements from her own yard on the tables and kitchen. She has a lot of chickens and cats and in the morning...

About the neighbourhood
Keaau, meaning the area of the water springs. Formerly it was called Oha, in the days when it was the biggest sugar plantation on the Island. Now it is an oasis of peace and quiet within modern day conveniences.

How to get there
Airport: Hilo International Airport: 15.0 km
Directions arriving from Hilo Airport:

At the first intersection with Hwy 11
(Kanoelehua Ave) turn left towards Keaau.

After about 7 miles you arrive at the first intersection to Keaau and Pahoa (bypass road). Skip it and proceed to the second intersection, on which you turn left. You are on Keaau-Pahoa Rd., between the shopping center to your right and the local market to your left. One mile down the road is our house to your right with the gate next to the barricade.

Should you be on the bypass road instead, turn to your right at the second traffic lights around the high school, and you will see the house and the gate.
We are right across the school.
