Recent Hawi reviews

  • Favorite spot on the Big Island

    "Our 3rd stay at a Whale's Crossing. We've stayed in the small cottage and in the 2BR house. Lovely place, hospitable hosts, friendly Golden Retrievers, superb ocean views. Highly recommended. We first stayed here on vacation, and now that we live here, we keep going back."

  • We feel so lucky to have lodged here!!!

    "When my husband and I started researching where to stay on the Big Island, we didn't have a lot of insight regarding options. We liked what we saw when we found this rental; the pictures, details, and reviews are what drew us in to this property. During correspondence, the owners seemed like our kind of folks. Well, we were right to follow our instincts--it was an awesome place to call "home" during our stay in Hawaii! The cottage is so sweet and comfortable. The property is simply beautiful. And yes, the outdoor shower is such a treat! And the owners are some of the coolest people ever. It was so easy to relax and take in all the beautiful elements surrounding us. As for location, we LOVED that we chose Hawi. There are so many sweet offerings in this part of the Big Island, not to mention the charm of the little town itself. There is a farmer's market right there, too, and we enjoyed many delicious treats and crafts. We feel so grateful and blessed to have landed here!! A superb cocoon wherein to find respite!"

  • 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."

  • A great house for groups or families!

    "We had a great time staying in this lovely home. There were seven of us (only one couple) and the large house, with multiple rooms and beds really suited our needs. The big backyard, front lanai, and common rooms in the house, as well as the ample kitchen and large dining area provided many options for all our different group activities. The close proximity to Hawi town was convenient for us, and we enjoyed a quick walk to the Saturday farmer's market, along with quick access to Mahukona for early morning snorkel/swims. Kapa'a Beach Park is also a great place to watch sunset. As the trip leader of this group, I would easily recommend this house to any other group travel or workshop/retreat leaders, as well as families. The manager was helpful as we were making our arrangements to come, and also super-helpful while we were there. We loved the character and charm of this old Hawi plantation home and would definitely come again!"
