Akiko's Buddhist B&B

Top choice b&b, rental house in Hakalau & Around

Transformation through simplicity. If you're seeking no-frills, even austere, accommodations to pare down your material life, this rustic retreat is ideal. Among a variety of accommodations, the B&B rooms, with shared bath, are basic and clean, while two off-the-grid studio cottages allow a unique indoor-outdoor experience. For those seeking more space, privacy and creature comforts, the three-bedroom house is a good deal.

Most compelling might be owner Akiko Masuda, an energetic community organizer who invites guests to join a daily morning meditation. To get here, turn inland toward Wailea-Hakalau between mile markers 15 and 16.
