Recent Ka'u District reviews

  • Good place to crash after exploring the southern side of the Big Island.

    "Title says it all. There are two cabins behind the Hana Hou Restaurant in Naalehu, which are great places to crash after snorkeling, Punalu'u black sand beach, and Volcano National Park. Breakfast is quite tasty at Hana Hou so plan accordingly."

  • Shangri-la

    "Very comfortable home in peaceful setting with great views. Plentiful fruit on the trees was a big bonus. The house was very clean and also convenient to explore the south side of the island - must visit the southernmost bakery (a real treat). The hillside setting/views can't be beat. Aaron was very helpful and courteous. The sheep/goats were an added attraction. Great value for the money and would not hesitate to stay again if planning to visit the south side. Even though it rained every evening, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

  • Enjoyable cottage, but can be rustic.

    "This is a unique house. There are a lot of pluses, but also a few rough edges. I want to give a straight forward review to make sure future renters have clear expectations. First of all, the house is very remotely located. We found the solitude to be quite enjoyable. It is about 30-45 minutes away from the Volcanos National Park. There nearest small town, Pahala, is about 5-7 minute drive. The town has limited services. It's a very relaxing and very quiet area. However, because of the remote location, there will be little to no cell phone service. The owner provides internet wi-fi. The area tends to get light rain. The elevation of the area is 2000+ feet, so the days in mid-January were very nice and could get a little hot. Because of the elevation, the nights can get very crisp, around 50-60 degrees. The house has an "open air" floor plan, so it does not have central air or heat and is not well insulated, so bring some warm clothes…it will be chilly! Because of the lack of insulation, we found a lot of spiders throughout the house. Keep in mind there is only one small bathroom for all five bedrooms and the only shower is the outdoor shower. The outdoor shower has a romantic flair to it, but by the end of our stay, we were longing for a traditional bathroom. The grounds are very beautiful and peaceful, only one or two cars passed the house during our 4-day stay. We did not meet the owner, but she was congenial over the phone. As another reviewer mentioned, we also had a late night trespasser that left us wondering who could have visited during the middle of the night. With that said, the house has some very charming and old-fashioned traits about it and wouldn't dissuade future renters from staying, just keep in mind it is a bit rustic."

  • Wonderful!

    "We stayed here during early January, 2014. We loved being here in this unit and at this location. We have no complaints except that we were not able to stay longer. The owners are easy to work with, and we plan to return again. We enjoyed snorkeling at the Black Sand Beach which is within walking distance of the condo. You are in for a bit of a drive from Hilo or Kona when flying in but it is worth it. The pool is wonderful. Sue and Peter obviously take great pride in providing a first rate experience for all their guests."
