"My husband and I, with 7 of our friends, spent two weeks at the Hawi Plantation House, and had the place all to ourselves. I had wanted to stay here for quite some time since I have a love of older historic homes and I love the village of Hawi. It was everything I had hoped it would be. The house was roomy and charming. The bedrooms were very comfortable, with lots of space. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for any meals we prepared, as well as having a charcoal grill that we used often. While most of the bathrooms were older styled, they were charming and very clean. There was also bathrooms for each person/couple as well as 2 1/2 baths and a laundry. The house was just a block away from restaurants and shops and 5 minutes from a small uncrowded beach park. Close by are zipline, horseback riding, & Polulu Valley and more. The pool, pool house and outdoor shower were a huge hit with all of us. There was a game room and exercise room, but none of us spent anytime in them. The house is right in town, but it was very quiet and felt very secluded with all the trees and plants.
Breakfast was provided the first morning with lots of fresh fruits, yogurts, bagels & cereals. But since we were the only ones in the house for two weeks, we enjoyed them for several days.
Desiree & Debbie made us feel very welcome, but also gave us our privacy. When a hurricane threatened to possibly cancel our flights home, they offered to let us stay at the house until we knew about our flight status and if need be, stay at the house until our flights were rescheduled. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it) the storm did not affect our travel plans.
The downside to staying at the Hawi Plantation house would have to be that it is a bit of a drive to sights around the island, as it is just about as far north on the island as you can get. But the location was one of the reasons we chose the house. I would recommend staying here for anyone who wants a quiet, relaxing stay away from the crowds. And I'm hoping that we will be back soon."

"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!"

"Just spent a week in this incredible island getaway. We've never been to this island and spent each day out adventuring. The Botanical Gardens and beaches are a must see. It was so wonderful to have this gorgeous home to come back to each evening. Everything you could need for an incredible vacation is provided by the owners. We spent evenings on the patio playing board games with our two adult children. The birds are incredible and it's so peaceful my husband insisted on sleeping on the patio in one of the recliners."

"We stayed at Hawi Haven for a week and really enjoyed ourselves. The house is right in the heart of Hawi so we were able to walk to town to shop, dine and visit the local farmers market. The house far exceeded our expectations and was stocked with everything imaginable. We enjoyed using the beach gear on several occasions and the books in the house came in handy to explore the island. We would absolutely visit Hawi Haven again!"
