  • The Perfect Sacred Retreat

    "Our meditation group has been taking advantage of this magical property for years! Being so near to the sacred valley of Waipio (a place of great spiritual energy or "mana" where King Kamehameha was raised) there is no place like it on any of the other islands that we've explored. You're sure to love the boldly creative color scheme, the tropical swimming area and the quiet seclusion that Hale I'o (House of the Hawk) offers!"

  • BREATHTAKING!

    "Don't read this if you're coming to use your new golf clubs, or plan to be seen with the elite at a five star resort. BUT, if you want to stay awhile in one of the world's most beautiful and private locations, don't miss the opportunity to come here. After you pass through electric gates and travel down the private lane, you'll pass grassy fields with several cows and a couple of horses belonging to the owner who lives in the only other home sequestered on this large property. You'll park your car in the garage containing a washer and dryer for your use and ascend a staircase that opens on a large deck with gorgeous views of the coast. We took all our meals on this deck and found it hard to leave. Entering the nicely decorated home you will find a number of surprises awaiting you; beautiful tropical flowers, tropical, fruit chocolate candy, Kona coffee beans, etc. The owner, Richard, is one of the most pleasant persons I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I could go on and on, but the two fingers I type with are growing tired. Give youself a real Hawaiian treat and come to this fantastic property. Robert Small"

  • Exceeded our expectations

    "The rental was spacious, private, very comfortable and well-stocked with far more amenities than we expected. We especially liked all the books on the history of the Hamakua Coast, which gave us a special perspective on the region as well as the history of the property itself. When booking, we somehow missed the fact that the rental also includes exclusive use of a large wooden hot tub and outdoor shower, which was a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed taking walks on the upcountry roads amid the lush green forest. The owners were very kind and accommodating, and the kitties who live on the farm are soooo sweet. Our son enjoyed feeding leftovers to the pig! Lots of fun!"

  • Perfect location....Perfect hosts

    "We were first-time travelers to the Big Island and never had booked with VRBO. After finding this site, followed by phone conversations with Rachel, we took the plunge and booked for three nights. Without any qualification whatsoever, this property met our expectations of a "laid-back" Hawaiian experience, just as the local residents like it. Whether you shop the farmers markets in Hilo and Waimea, hike along the North Kohala coast, or just relax on the lanai with a glass of wine and binoculars, you won't be disappointed. Rachel and Chris complement these experiences by offering the perfect balance between privacy and genuine hospitality. Give them a call !"
