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!"

"The Cliffhouse provides an incredible view like none other that we have experienced, the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean is literally within a few feet of the lanai. Being 800' above the water adds to visual impact. We found the Cliffhouse to be well stocked with provisions, especially the kitchen; you will want for nothing except the food that you need to bring with you (Foodland in Parker Ranch is recommended). It is incredibly private and very quiet at this location located on a 2-acre plot directly above the ocean. We have rented a number of vacation homes in the past so have benchmarks to compare against and the Cliffhouse will be the first rental that we have ever desired to return to. Simply a wonderful experience."

"This VRBO was for the 2nd half of our honeymoon. We were married on Oahu and did the beach honeymoon with the expected crazy crowds there. For the second half, we wanted seclusion, adventure and sightseeing. We rented a jeep and spent each day on a different part of the island (Volcanos, hiking, beaches, etc). The VRBO was out of the way, had AMAZING views, and was like being in a rain forest. Paula was a gracious host and the property was impeccable. The cottage was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Would love to come back."

"My husband and I spent the last two nights of our 11 day trip to the Big Island here at the Hideaway. After driving down the long driveway and turning into the carport we were blown away by the view before us. Easily the best view on the island (or any island for that matter). The house itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We loved falling asleep to the sound of frogs, although earplugs did come in handy at one point as we slept with all the windows open. It was amazing to wake up early and just sit up in bed to see the view. The house is about 9 miles from town so while it's not too far it may be easier for some to get food and eat meals at the house. There is a fully equipped kitchen (although no microwave) that would make it convenient to prepare meals. We did that our second night and had a great time sitting in the yard and looking at the view while having dinner. The house is about 1/2 mile from the Waipio Valley lookout and it was a very easy walk to the lookout and then a not so easy (but definitely recommended) walk to the beach below.
In addition, we loved meeting Lani the dog. We were missing our two dogs at home and to have Lani come around often was a nice touch. She spent an entire afternoon hanging out with us in the yard and even fell asleep on the porch when we went to bed. When we awoke she was wagging her tail at the door about 2 minutes later. She is a super sweet dog who isn't a fan of bananas, but really loves malasadas and pizza crust. :-)
I would highly recommend this wonderful property!"
