Description from owner

Description

Waiola Guesthouse is off-the-beaten track in the southern-most part of Hawaii Island. If you’re looking for a truly unique Hawaiian experience away from the hustle and noise of tourist destination spots, Waiola Guesthouse is for you. It is an upstairs studio complete with a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, queen-sized bed and satellite TV with HBO. The lanai overlooks a horse pasture with a zen-view of the ocean and our farm-fresh eggs complete the package!

Waiola offers peace and quiet on a ten-acre sanctuary and is close to Volcanoes National Park, Punaluu Black Sand Beach, Sea Mountain Golf Course and the world-famous Papakolea Green Sands Beach.
