"This is a wonderful little get away up in the green hills with a quaint lane and bridge. It is a great place to watch the birds in the yard and enjoy the flowers, but the best part is that you feel so cared for. Karin provides a wonderful personalized assortment of goodies for breakfast and snacks. There are fresh flowers everywhere (unless you are allergic). There is a wealth of cooking utensils, pots and pans. We enjoy cooking at home and this made it easy. The Cottage was one of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii. When we return we would want to stay here again."

"Off the beaten track, lovely location and residence. The large back yard orchard was a plus. It led down to a quiet bench over looking the ocean. The Hot Tub was private. We enjoyed all 4 days, we wish we stayed all 10. Location to Honokaa and the Waipio Canyon is perfect. If you are looking for something that is not a typical condo on the west side of the Island - then you should definitely try this location."

Staying at Hamakua Green-house was an exceptional treat!
"Staying at Hamakua Green-house was an exceptional treat! The country setting surrounded by pastures with a view of the ocean from the covered porch was peaceful and relaxing. This clean, spacious off-the-grid house provided all the comforts of home from the open living rm, dining rm, and kitchen, to the comfortable beds in the roomy bedrms. We really enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped kitchen and grilling on the porch with awesome views. We also appreciated all the dry goods and supplies provided in the home, that you can’t load up your suitcase with when traveling among the islands. Within easy drives to the town of Hilo and many other places for sight seeing.
Some of our favs on the Big Island included: hikes to nearby Akaka Falls and the Waipio Valley with black sand beach, Hawaii Volcanoes Nat’l Park, scenic drive along Onomea Bay, watching surfers at Honoli ‘i Beach Park, Uncle Ed’s bakery, Woodshop Gallery & cafe, and shops in Honomu, dinners at Cafe Pesto and Ken’s House of Pancakes in Hilo, farmers mkt & Rainbow Jo’s shop in Hilo, Greenwell Coffee Farms tour & Annie’s Island Fresh Burgers in Kealakekua, snorkeling (went to Kahalu’u Beach Park-crowded & overused area, should have gone to Pu’uhonua O Honaunau or other location). There are many more places we wish we had had time to see, so a return visit would be wonderful!"

"We wanted to try staying somewhere inland for the first time and we loved it. The cottage was comfortable and we loved feeding the pig. Such a lovely place. We walked a short distance up the road and visited the Hawaiian Vanilla Company (great vanilla shakes). We went to Honoka'a several times. Such a darling town. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. My husband and I loved it."
