This is a sugar shack from the 40's. Our home is located in the town of Ookala. Please go to VRBO.com listing number 245952 for further photos and options and details.
It is on 1 acres of flat land with a Banyan tree, and a view of the ocean due north. The village was a sugar workers camp and in fact the locals call it a camp not a village.
We put a Splash lap pool on the property above ground for safety reasons, (little ones) it is a 10 x 50 foot salt water pool. The home has a gas range, water purification system, flat screen with surround sound.
The living and cooking areas are connected with a double French door to a outside grill with oven and stove top burner. The bath is large and has a fudo (Asian tub) big enough for an adult or two kids.
The home has a deck on Three sides with off street parking for a boat if you have one. Ookala is 5 minutes from the Laupahoehoe park and the 50' s Cafe, a real gem for those days when you just want someone else to do the cooking.
We are 15 minutes south of Honokaa the gateway town to Wiapio Valley, also has a great movie theater and shopping, and Il Mundo has the best pizza on the Big Island.
We love the 1 minute walk to a park and central location to the most beautiful parks on the island. The bedrooms are very open with French doors to the deck, the kids room has a full bed on the bottom and a twin on top.
All rooms have ceiling fans.
