Recent Big Island reviews

  • Beautiful condo!

    "This condo was wonderful. It had everything we needed to make our vacation complete. It is in a great location on Alii Dr. Far away enough for the crowds and noise to not be an issue, but a short drive to shopping and restaurants. The top floor of the building was very quiet and peaceful. The building itself also felt very secure and safe. Having the washer and dryer in the unit was a fantastic time and money saver. The breeze that blows through the condo is so relaxing. It was a very short walk to the beach and fantastic snorkeling. We saw turtles every day we were out! We would definately stay here again on any future visit to the Big Island."

  • Stunning, clean vacation close to everything

    "This condo was well kept and included every upgrade imaginable. It was clean and there were instructions provided to use the electronics and other things in the kitchen. The beds were comfortable and the views were spectacular. We loved our time here. The hosts were lovely and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend it to anyone else going to the Kohala coast."

  • Our First Time to the Big Island!

    "We completely enjoyed our time at this unit... every moment! Our most favorite feature was that it is located right on the ocean. Every morning we sat on the lanai drinking coffee and having breakfast, relaxing, and listening to the ocean. We were entertained by watching the dolphins jump and spin. The unit is very comfortably layed out, and the complex was quiet because there are only 6 units. Although the main road was somewhat busy, we were pleased that the complex is located a couple of miles away from the main tourist area. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly and gave us lots of tips about the island, things to do, places to visit and eat. The condo is very well kept and was well stocked with things we may have needed. We are already talking about planning our next trip to Hale Pohaku!"

  • Perfect retreat by the bay... excellent value

    "This is the perfect, cheerful house for a couple (upper house only) or family or group (entire house) just steps away from beautiful Kealakekua Bay. I've stayed here with friends several times and it has been great each time - I look forward to the next visit! Susan is a warm, helpful and responsive owner. Her house is comfy and well equipped for a sweet, relaxing vacation or retreat. If you want a fancy place with air conditioning, this is not the house for you ... but if you want a home-y place with lovely breezes each morning and evening in one of the most beautiful and convenient locations in south Kona, this place is not only perfect, but an excellent value. Cheers!"

Big Island Travel Tips

Hawaii is hands-down one of the most sought-after destinations in the U.S. There are eight main islands, and the largest and northernmost is called the Island of Hawaii -- better known as The Big Island -- to avoid confusing it with the rest of the state. It is a paradise filled with unparalleled natural wonders and all but two of the world’s climate zones, which serve as a home for a wealth of biodiversity. Come get your own slice of heaven on earth.

Kau

What’s a better sight to see than an active volcano spewing lava? Visit the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to see it for yourself. The Big Island is not only big, it’s still growing! Kilauea has been erupting since 1983. Situated 30 miles southwest of Hilo, it is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet. As a whole, the park boasts more than 150 miles of hiking trails through craters, rainforests, deserts and the volcanoes themselves. It is even considered a World Heritage Site. Amazingly, 250,000 to 650,000 cubic yards of lava are produced each day, which is enough to cover a road 20 miles long. Hurry, because no one knows when Kilauea will stop erupting! Catch this phenomenal natural event while supplies last! The visitor center is open from 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For the science behind it, take a walk through the Thomas A. Jaggar Museum for geologic displays, videos and maps. Besides the volcano, you and the family can explore Crater Rim Drive, an 11-mile scenic drive within the park.

Kohala Coast

Along the western edge you will find the black lava fields of the Kohala Coast. However, a little further south lies the yang to its ying, Hapuna Beach, which is bursting with Hawaii’s biggest white-sand beaches. Let’s put it this way: Hapuna has hit international top ten lists year after year. The landscape are pristine, and the vistas couldn’t get much better. At Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, you’ll discover lava rock carvings etched hundreds of years ago by native Hawaiians. No one is exactly sure what they mean, but it is generally thought that these carvings are records of birth and deaths from the ancient culture. There’s no better time than now, so treat yourself to luxury living as you can freshen up at top-tier spas to recharge and feel yourself again. Don’t forget to hit a round of golf on the world-class fairways and greens. Jack Nicklaus designed Hualalai Golf Course, while Robert Trent Jones Sr. had his hand at Mauna Kea Resort. Rest assured, you won’t go wrong.

Hamakua Coast

Hamakua Coast, on the eastern side, is famous for its waterfalls and riveting rainforest. Explore the heart-stopping Akaka Falls, where waters spill 442 feet through a gorge into the river below. You’ll be surrounded by bamboo, birds of paradise and huge ti plants along the way. The coast is ribbed with valleys and gulches that you’ll see during your drive at the Hamakua Heritage Corridor, a trip that passes rainforests and waterfalls alike. Unwind in 275 acres of beauty at the World Botanical Garden, home to the Umauma Falls, before you go zip-lining along vistas of the Pacific Ocean. It’s a perfect adventure for thrill-seekers young and old!

Hilo

You’ll be shouting “ahola” as you arrive in Hilo International Airport in this eastern region. The landscape brims with more rainforests and gardens than you will know what to do with. For science lovers, enjoy the amazing exhibits in the Pacific Museum and Imiloa Astronomy Center, Hilo’s newest top-notch attraction. To get a fresh bite to eat, pick out your favorite exotic fruit at Hilo Farmers Market, a knockout among locals. Cafe Pesto serves seafood caught the same day that will leave you and your family wowed.

Puna

Puna packs those black-sand beaches that Hawaii is known for. Tourists flock to Kalapana, a historic town destroyed by lava. Today, the site is the prime spot to see the lava reach the sea. A few miles away, you can see Keaau, where lands used to be covered in sugar canes. At the Lava Tree State Park, there are molds of trees that lava formed in the 1700s. Swim in pools heated by the volcanoes beside regions rich in tropical fruits and vegetation. Isaac Hale Beach Park provides one of the island’s most coveted surf spots, although swimming is not recommended due to the strong currents.

In Hawaii, you’ll leave with more than just a lei around your neck, you’ll come home with zip-line extravaganzas, volcano explosions and Pacific seafood dinners floating on your mind.
