Recent Hamakua Coast reviews

  • Wonderful Experience

    "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."

  • Most Memorable place stayed on Big Island

    "We spent a month on the Big Island and stayed in many different places. On the dry side we stayed in Waikoloa resort hotels and condos and then a nice hotel in Kona before we went over to the other side to a hotel in Hilo and finally ended up on the Hamakua Coast at The Historic Buddhist Temple. We were booked for 5 nights and when we first arrived felt unsure and wondered what we would do there for so long. Then the place began to work it's magic. We slowed down and began to really appreciate the quality of the space we were in...the feel of its history, how it has been lovingly restored and decorated with lovely old things that I continued to discover each day we were there, the amazing professional kitchen, the temple upstairs so wonderful a space for yoga etc etc. We enjoyed walking down to the point, learning about its history and watching the spectacular waves. We could drive into a lovely town nearby for shopping, coffees, movies and there is a swimming pool in a little town that is even closer. Hilo and Waimea are both accessible. We enjoyed the farmers market in Waimea on Sat morning. Ron sells his gelato there. His gelato is not to be missed! Unique flavours, delicious and healthy. Another highlight was definitely the hosts. They are brave and positive souls that are working hard at doing what they love. So they were inspiring as well as being as knowledgeable and helpful without ever intruding on your space. They are also fun! In short our stay was most memorable because of the place and because of them. Check out Peters review for more details."

  • Perfect stay!

    "My wife and I spend the first 3 nights of our honeymoon here and it was the perfect way to start. The location is great! It's far enough off the beaten path that we had plenty of privacy and quiet but also in a great location for exploring so much of the island. We didn't spend much time at the house because we were out exploring but the time we did spend was exactly what we wanted. The views are amazing and the cottage and property are very well kept. We loved picking fresh fruit from the orchard in the morning for our breakfast and Paula and Dan were great hosts. If you're into hiking there's no better place than Waipio Valley and you can walk there from your front door. We did this on our first full day and were lucky enough to see wild horses on the beach. It was an amazing trip from start to finish!"

  • Wonderful inland stay

    "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."
