Recent Hawi reviews

  • 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."

  • What a lovely location!

    "We (4 adults) stayed at Kohala Lodge for two nights. We loved it! The location was perfect, a quiet spot with a beautiful view. Internet has been upgraded now that better service is available in this area so no problems there. The house is unique and the cedar wood was beautiful. Kohala Lodge is perfect for relaxing and sharing time with friends and family. The deck was a favorite spot throughout the day. This area of the island is beautiful and so much calmer than the Kona area. So, if you want some time in a quieter area this would be a good choice. Hawi and Kapaau both had good places to eat and wonderful galleries that would fit varying budgets."

  • Wonderful Place to Stay

    "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."

  • Don't want to leave!

    "Aloha Family, Don't want to leave - it was very restorative. We live in Kona and needed some country retreat. We enjoyed getting to know you and your family; eating at the market with you - food was fabulous; the outdoor shower was incredible! Loved the art and high end finishes - your thoughtfulness is seen in every inch to every corner in this hale. We will be back again! A Hui Ho! Adam and Michelle"
