Recent Hamakua Coast reviews

  • A bit of Old Hawaii

    "This was a relaxing ending to our trip. The home is beautiful and the grounds are breathtaking. The small bench at the end of the property is perfect for a morning cup of coffee or an end-of-day glass of wine. The spa and sauna are a plus. The caregivers were available but respectful of our privacy. We would highly recommend this property."

  • Wonderful view of night sky and ocean expanse.

    "Great view of the full moon! Fun to eat breakfast of local bananas and fresh pineapple and local coffee with rising mist of the ocean in full view over the hill. Darren, the caretaker, was very helpful and shared macademia nuts, sugar cane and bananas with us. Appreciated washer, dryer and gas stove. Hand washed dishes, so didn't use dish washer. Comfortable beds and puffy covers. Warm showers. Appreciated focus on off grid sustainability. Snorkles beach chairs, and cooler available."

  • Ono hale filled with aloha

    "Nestled in lush, up country greenery, Skandia has every convenience beautifully presented. The owner has gone out of her way to provide a most pleasant experience. The accommodations were outstanding; very comfortable & homey. Picturesque views of the observatory. Would go back in a heart beat."

  • Nirvana!

    "Stayed at the Cliff House for 4 nights on our second stop during our 30th anniversary trip to the Big Island. I don't even know where to start. Everything about our stay was idyllic! I expected a rustic, simple cottage. The woodwork instead was just beautiful (what a ceiling!). The love and care that Kristan has put into every detail is quite evident - the art, the sculptures, the flowers - inside and out, just beautiful. The house is saturated in local culture. Books about the island and Hawaiian legend abound. And the view!!! Breathtaking, spectacular, awesome, amazing, holy - pick your favorite word and it still falls short. We really did feel like we were all alone in the Garden of Eden. Drinking wine on the lanai as the sun went down. Rocking on the swing in the garden. Simple delicious meals made in the well-equipped kitchen. Hot tubs watching the stars every night. Big comfortable bed with soft sheets and puffy pillows. I even loved the silky tropical curtains hanging from bamboo on the windows. Great road for jogging along the water too (don't be put off by the many friendly dogs who come out to say hi along the way). The house is minutes away from the Waipio Valley - a spectacular (but steep) hike down to a pristine black sand beach. You can also take a tour from the store just down the street. The quaint little town of Honokaa is just 10 minutes away with a few restaurants (Café Il Mondo was great for pizza and calzone. Also picked up a terrific CD of the local high school jazz band there!) Our very favorite beach was Hapuna Beach - gorgeous white sand beach great for swimming and snorkeling (drive to the left access area for shade and snorkeling). The restaurant at Hapuna Beach Prince resort was terrific for lunch. The beach at the Mauna Kea resort was also beautiful but the lot for public access fills up by around 8 am. The only other thing I can say is that I almost cried when we left. If you're looking for a romantic time with the one you love in paradise, look no further than the Cliff House."
