About Guy Berryessa
We're a two dad family with two beautiful daughters who try to spend our summers on Hawaii and dream of the day we can live there full-time.
Guy Berryessa purchased this Studio in 2004
Why Guy Berryessa chose Papaikou
We wanted a well-built home, with gorgeous yard and lots of wood and space, that we could share with family and friends from around the world, as well as occasional guests who would like to enjoy our little slice of paradise! We loved the location and setting--a perfect balance of quiet, lush surroundings, yet a beautiful short drive to town.
What makes this Studio unique
It has a gorgeous rural location on the stream and waterfall, yet so very close to town and its conveniences. That we can bike or walk to beaches is a plus as well!

Lush and Tropical Property

Nice location, good quality accommodations.
This was a great visit while my home here was tented for termites. We would stay here again or suggest it for friends that visit. Thanks to the owners and cleaner for providing my wife, our cat and me such a nice three days !
Thanks, Bob, for staying with us and for the kind gift of tea, too! We hope to visit your tea farm when on island some time. Best wishes!
Very clean and comfortable!
Was great to have a full size fridge and stove as we prepare our own meals. Microwave and laundry facilities were a bonus. The bed was very comfy and cleanliness is a must with me and I was not let down. Also nice to be just out of town away from the traffic and noise. Definitely will be my go to stay the next time visiting.
Clean & comfortable
I travel for work and like to stay in places with kitchens. This place was great. It was clean, safe and comfortable. There was covered parking which was helpful on rainy days. There was a window a/c unit that I barely used because it was cool most days and nights. I loved being able to cook instead of having to eat out all the time. I also loved having a laundry facility on site. Guy is a wonderful host, and he checked in on me intermittently to make sure everything was ok.
Comfy retreat in the rainforest
We loved our Papaikou stay in Guy’s studio!
I would definitely recommend
It's a great place to stay in a perfect location just outside of Hilo. Has everything you need.
On the beautiful Hamakua Coast, yet only 5 minutes from downtown Hilo and its various restaurants, shops and Farmers' Market, but a world away on a lush river gorge in a quiet village with its own beach and scenic drive and the island's finest botanical gardens. Near Honolii, excellent surf beach, accessible en route to Hilo by car, our bicycles (including one built for two!) or even a pleasant walk.
