  • A Change of Pace - A Great Place to Stay

    "We just returned from spending a week at the Hawi Haven. We had a great time. This is our third trip to Hawaii, the first to the Big Island and Hawi. It was a good change of pace. The town was small and the cottage location was quiet, almost country. The town was two blocks away. We had a large yard, complete with visiting chickens. The house was large. We had more than enough room. We appreciated all the extras: bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas, Dish TV and internet, grill, and almost anything else we needed. The two things that were missing were the furnace and the air conditioning - we didn't need them. We loved having the open windows and having the breeze blow through the house. While Kona is about an hour away, we found many things to explore around Hawi. This house is large enough for a bigger family gathering. We highly recommend it!"

  • 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!"

  • A Perfect Place To Unwind

    "My partner Connie and I had been on a hectic pace this past winter, and we were really ready for some RR. The Bamboo Cottage was the perfect place to totally unwind and relax. We stayed for a week, and then journeyed to the populous Kona area for a totally different experience. We have been going to the Big Island for the past six years, and we wanted a unique experience. As the pictures show, the accommodations are great. It also allowed us to exsplore some new areas and beaches. The Hawi merchants were welcoming. Jennifer and Jeff were the perfect hosts. Being VRBO owners, we appreciated Jennifer's quick responses and attention to detail. She is on top of her game."

  • Intoxicating, this cocktail

    "Essence of Fijian bure; echo of Robinson Crusoe; whiff of Gilligan. Can you see the whales dance like luminous bubbles beneath the rainbow garnish? Can you feel the saffron finches tickle the frangipani? Can you hear Miles Davis performed on a washtub bass? Experience Marty and Linda's welcoming embrace and you may forsake job and shoes forever. Both the cottage and house are utterly charming."
