Upstairs and downstairs each have their own kitchen, bathroom and private entry. If you rent this listing this is not a shared space. If you would like to rent a private room please see our other listing. We are a short 5 minute drive to downtown Hilo. The elevation makes the temperature and humidity very comfortable.

Hi! I'm Kristie. I am a local artist and was born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii. I lived in Los Angeles for many years and recently moved home to Hawaii. I love living in Hilo and hope to share this beautiful place with you. The Big Island has many amazing things to experience and our home is in a convenient location to explore the whole island. I have my art studio and residence on the lower level when I am in town you will usually find me there. I opened up the HAWAII ART HOUSE to share a unique, local and art-filled experience during your stay in Hawaii. I hope this place inspires you as it does us. If you have any special requests, questions or concerns please let us know.
