The residence is nested in the privacy of about ten acres of luscious botanical gardens in a most convenient urban location. An oasis of peace and quiet in the middle of modern day conveniences, it offers the serene plantation ambiance of its past and Island history.
Only a minute away from the next supermarket and restaurants in Keaau shopping center, you will always be on paved roads and only 10 to 15 minutes from downtown Hilo.

De ruimte
The space:
Enter the magnificent Royal Palm lined drive and experience Island history.
The buildings are authentic Victorian and about 130 years old. They have been tastefully restored and equipped with all modern amenities.
In the midst of our botanical exuberance and wildlife, you connect with the charm of a simpler life, as it used to be on the Island a century ago. The bedrooms are on the second floor. As you open your eyes in the morning you can watch the rising sun glinting off the ocean through your window. In winter time you get cozy in front of our legendary lava rock fireplace.
On the large lanai you enjoy a homemade breakfast of your choice with famous Island coffees and an exotic platter of tropical tree ripened fruit of the season, mostly from our organic orchards.
All day long enjoy a cool trade wind breeze, carrying bird songs and flower fragrances from trees and shrubs below.

A little bit of history:
The land, originally owned by King William Charles Lunalilo (1835-1874), was purchased by the Shipman family.
In 1902 the first manager of the Ola sugar plantation planted the banyan tree near the cottage. It is now considered the biggest on the Island.
The Main House, nineteenth century Queen Anne architecture, has been used for movies and photography sessions, recordings, magazines, books and commercials. A 1950’s photo is shown in the book “The Hawaiians”.
Films recorded on the property include: Four Frightened People (Claudette Colbert)-Diamond Head (Charlton Heston)-The Hawaiians (Charlton Heston - Geraldine Chaplin)-Hawaii Five O-Hawaiian Eye-Big Hawaii (Cliff Potts)-Danger In Paradise (Cliff Potts & Ina Bolin).
At times it was also the home of Herbert Shipman, who was known to have saved from extinction the Nene bird (Hawaii's State bird). He also played an important role in bringing the orchid Industry to Hawaii. His passion for exotic plants is still noticeable to the present day, as there are shrubs and trees and grasses on the property, not seen anywhere else. His orchard planting shed is still admired by botanical experts.
Herbert also used to hold parties for all the prominent people of his time, who came visit the Island. The Roosevelt's, Rockefellers, Cole Porter, movie stars like Paul Newman and the legendary Amelia Earhart are known to have graced the residence with their presence.
(Ref. Emmett Cahill 'The Shipmans of East Hawaii')
After the plantation closed and sold the residence in the early 1980’s, it fell in disrepair until the present owners acquired it and worked for several years to restore it to its original beauty.

But the history dates back beyond the plantation era to ancient Hawaiian legends and fairytales.
The most known is of the Hawaiian princess La'ieikawaii, hiding in the place known as Paliuli.
The Mango forest on the south-east corner of the property still holds the remains of an ancient heiau.
The Hawaiian movie Choreographer Henry Pa, recounts in an interview: "When I was involved in the movie, "Bird of Paradise," my grandmother Grace Kealiiaua Pa told me to go to the island of Hawaiʻi, to Olaʻa, at Keʻeau. I was to sit beneath a certain tree, which was the birthplace of my grandfather and his former home. There I was to gaze out at the water and look for two stones, one of which was Hiʻiaka-ika-poli-o-Pele, and the other was Lohiau. I was to meditate on the task before me. By doing this, I would receive the strength and inspiration that I needed to choreograph the dance scene for this movie."

I am from Milano, Italy, and live in Keaau, Hawaii since 30 years. Keeping Opaliuli beautiful is a 24/7 job and there is no time for anything else. It is rewarding when my guests are satisfied and enjoying their vacation.
