Honomu house description

Kick back on your breezy lanai after a hard day of island living as cruise ships make their evening rounds over the horizon and dinner roasts on the grill. This comfortable family home plus separate studio, sleeps eight on four beds and has a plush couch for a stowaway or new friend. There are three bedrooms in the main house to rent, and if you wish to add it for added privacy, there is a separate, furnished studio with its own kitchenette, full bath and covered view lanai that can be accessed from indoors.
Fruit trees on the property produce year-round avocados and bananas along with seasonal citrus and guava. Enjoy all of the creature comforts you’ll need to feel at home – three flat screen televisions with cable/blue-ray/Netflix, WiFi, iHomes for your ipod/mp3 player, dishwasher, washer and dryer and beach toys including towels, chairs, body boards, snorkel gear and a cooler.
Old Honomu town is located 18 minutes north of Hilo and 15 minutes away from Honoli’i surf beach on the Big Island of Hawaii. Village shops are a two-minute walk into town, where you’ll find shave ice and fresh baked goods at Mr. Ed’s, gourmet lunch plates at the Woodshop Gallery and Café, grocery sundries at Jan’s Store and locally crafted gifts at a number of shops.

Just a short two mile drive to the amazing Akaka Falls. If you prefer an aerial view of nearby rivers and waterfalls head to Skyline Eco Tours and book a zipline adventure.

                            My husband and I had been traveling through the tourist "must see" sights on the Big Island and after a few weeks took a much needed time out at this home in Honomu. What a pleasant surprise! We cooked most meals in the very well equipped kitchen and were able to pick oranges, limes and avocados right from the property. The lanai was perfect for relaxing and watching the skyline over the ocean. We found the location of the property perfect for day trips into the Hilo and Puna districts and it's over all tranquility absolutely rejuvenating!

                            Comfortable, well equipped kitchen, queen bed in master BR, doubles in smaller bedrooms. Shower in MBR, tub with shower for two smaller bedrooms. Big property with fruit trees (avocado, orange, bananas). Lots of stairs into house so not OK for mobility impaired. Lighting in house is low voltage and not good for reading. Hilo is easy to get to for shopping. Honomu village has little to offer food-wise. Farmers Market in Hilo Wednesdays and Saturdays is a must for fruits and veggies. Honey on big island is wonderful. Lots of stuff to see and do around Island, zip-lining, Volcano NP, Mauna Kea observatory (13800 feet) and observation level (8500 feet) but dress for cold weather!, Costco in Kona, Kona (try poke), green and black beaches (for sea turtles), Mauna Kea Beach Hotel for great Sunday brunch ($$$), and more! Gas is much cheaper on Hilo side! Nice brewery in Kona!

                            A few girl friends and I came over from Oahu for a wedding. This place was great. It was well equipped for us to cook a few meals and spacious enough for us to hang out. We enjoyed the breeze and ocean view from the front porch. Got some avocados from the back yard too. Good location, it is about 20 minutes from town which isn't that bad. Right next to the entrance of Akaaka falls with a few small shops around. The little town was cute! Enjoyed our stay very much! Thanks!

                            This property is located in the quaint little town of Honomu about 12 miles out of Hilo. The property itself is nice but be aware that the studio sleeps only 2 people comfortably (not 3). There is no visible address on the property which makes it a bit of a challenge to locate, especially at night. There are 2 Akaka Falls signs on highway 19. One just says "Akaka Falls, 4 miles" and the other says "Akaka Falls/Honomu". The property is located about 50 feet after the Akaka/Honomu sign; be prepared to make a quick left turn. Overall, we enjoyed our time at this property. The manager answers calls/questions promptly.

                            We trully enjoyed our stay at this property, it was very close to the Akaka falls and the Botanical gardens. The house has a bunch of tips on adventures nearby, restaurants, shopping and it was clean and comfortable. There is vast amount of Ghekos around the house to take some unique pictures, in addition we had avocadoes, guavas, and a nice pineapple from the property grounds. Please be aware that there is no Air Condtion, but the humidity is lower than from our neck of the woods in South Florida and there was a nice breeze runnning thru the house to make it very comfortable. The house is also very well stocked with books, DVD's, etc.

                            Our family stayed at this home for 5 days and we had wonderful time there. The house was really clean and well tastefully furnished. Kitechn is great and has everything we needed. Beddings... are in excellent condition, and clean soft pillows! The describtion was very modest. my family particularly enjoy the books, very well selection and covered a wide range of readers. my kids loved reading the poems for young people, fictions, and Dermatology atlas! I will put 4 or 5 stars for this home. The owner is very helpful to accomodate us. We will definitely come back when next time we visit Big Island again. This home is close to most sights/attractdions on the east side of Big Island. We went Hilo a couple of times for farmers' market and fish market. We did hiking in Waipi’o Valley and Akaka Falls which is just 5 mins from house. The little Honomu town is extremely charming with a backery, expresso, post office, antique shop, and other gift shops. We had a most memorable experience of Easter Friday service at the United Church which is 5 minitues walk from this house. I want to say "THANK YOU" to Morris for shairng his home with travelors and vacation seekers like us. Much appreciated. Nancy

                            My 4th VRBO rental on Big Island, and my favorite so far on the east side. The house was clean and plenty big for us, and the view was nice. Mainland worries melted away in 5 minutes. I was a little worried it wouldn't be private enough but it was not an issue, as there's a big yard and it's on a private cul-de-sac. You won't have to see or hear cars going by! (I'm Wyoming rancher who lives with two dogs on 13.5 square miles, so I value my privacy. This place worked fine in that regard.) The property owner is very accommodating and helpful, and answered all our questions promptly. As it says in the title, I would do this again in a heartbeat. Thanks for sharing your home! Had great chats the owner of Mr. Ed's Bakery and it was nice to be able to walk in two minutes to a coffee if you didn't want to make a pot at home. The ocean view is nice, and you can hear the surf crashing at night! Kolekole Beach Park is a 4 minute drive, and a nice little rocky gulch-beach where Akaka Falls (~3 miles upstream) eventually dumps into the ocean. I've been to Big Island plenty, and Laupahoehoe Point is one of my favorite places on earth. One thing I never did there was try the 50's Diner in the town of Laupahoehoe, and this time we did it twice. WOW is it good! Fantastic hand-made LOCAL BEEF patties, fresh fish and chips, etc... I've been by that little sign so many times and almost thought it was a joke, but it's not!

                            My husband and I stayed here for a week in January. The grounds were beautiful, and the view from the lanai is wonderful. The house was just as described, and the owner very helpful when we had a minor wifi/TV problem Hilo Shark's coffee shop, a very short walk away has great coffee and atmosphere. Love this place!

                            The reviews and description of this place were completely accurate. The house is beautiful and it's in a very quiet area but central to all tourist locations. The kitchen has all the amenities and extras you need (no need to bring any extra spices, sugar, coffee filters, etc). The fruit trees on the property are a nice luxury. The owner was very helpful and provided detailed instructions on everything before we arrived. I really can't think of a bad thing to say about this place. Thanks to the owner and manager for a great stay.

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, pet owners, families with young children, age 55+, sightseeing.

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About: I'm an emergency physician, originally from Puerto Rico, who enjoys travel and island living.

                          Why Honomu:
                          Honomu is the quintessential plantation town, with beautiful ocean views, welcoming people and shops within walking distance.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          My favorite Honomu activity is to bike up the cane roads, take in the Pacific on the downhills, and enjoy a local beer on my lanai.
