Recent Hawi reviews

  • Great Place

    "We enjoyed our week long stay here very much. It was a great place to return to after a day sightseeing or going to the beach or for having our family over for a barbecue. The cottage was very comfortable and super pretty. My husband, especially liked being in the country. Every effort was made on Jennifer and Jeff's end to provide everything necessary for a comfortable stay. We would definitely return."

  • Luxurious upcountry living on the Big Island

    "This spacious home has everything you would ever want. The house is practically brand new. It is beautifully furnished, has all the communication amenities. The setting is unparalleled. Imagine living in a house on a beautifully landscaped 3 acres in a country setting only 25 minutes from some of Hawaii's best beaches. This is the antithesis of what other people experience in Hawaii (crowded condo living with little privacy in a highly commercial resort setting). The Hawi location is perfect. The town is a center for artisans, and has several outstanding restaurants, all in a quaint country environment. The property is very much a private home, managed by a hands on local property manager who is very responsive. It is not managed by a large disinterested rental property company. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more, and can't wait to get back."

  • Peaceful relaxing home with wonderful hosts!

    "The drive up to the house is absolutely incredible. The house is peaceful and set back from the road. Distant views of the ocean and watching the sunset made this rental a gem! The hosts were very gracious and left us a basket of goodies including fresh fruit, homemade dried curried coconut and macadamia nuts. We were also allowed to pick fresh fruit from the trees next to the property. This home had everything we were looking for. Quiet, nice outdoor patio, open concept living area, unique feel to it, and private. The property is nearly surrounded by a fence as there are horses on the property. They added to the atmosphere and my husband and I loved watching them from the patio. Booking this rental was easy and hassle free and we received a quick response when inquiring. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a relaxing peaceful getaway with a unique touch. It is a little bit of a drive to get to the coastline as the Kohala area sits up high above the coastline, but the views are so incredible we did not mind one bit. The nearby Pololu Valley was our favorite beach/hike. I would stay here again if we ever get the chance to come back! Good value for the price."

  • We had a fabulous time!

    "We spent three weeks from mid-February into early March 2015. There were four of us (two couples) so we had lots of room and were very, very comfortable throughout our stay. We were told that the frequent, heavy evening and early morning rains this year were quite unusual. Hawi seems to be in the transition zone between the arid Kona side and wet north/east sides of the island. We only had to drive 5 miles back towards Kona for the sun to reappear. Hawi is a quaint,small town, which we were told by locals is in the midst of a lot of change with more and more tourists finding out about it. We purposely did not want to stay in the congested resorts/condos found along the Kona Coast. Hawi Haven was recommended to us by friends who've stayed there about 5 times in the past several years. Their recommendation proved to be a good one. The house is fully outfitted with just about anything you would ever need, right down to band aids and sunscreen. The kitchen has tons of room and storage, and all the appliances/cookware you could possibly need. Hawi is in the northeastern corner of the island so we took some very long day trips during our 3-week stay to visit sites we really wanted to get to (Hawaiian Volcanoes NP, Summit of Mauna Kea for sunset). We spaced these longer trips out over our stay so that the long days did not come one after the other. It was just so nice to return to Hawi Haven to kick back and relax. This kind of quieter island experience is probably not for everyone (like if you're looking to go out partying and dancing nightly) but we loved it and plan on returning! And no, three weeks didn't feel like too long a time. The owners were very responsive to our requests while making our arrangements, and clearly have pride in their property."
