Everything was wonderful! Hawi Heaven!!
"All the glowing comments below are correct. The house was lovely, very clean, spacious and so graciously set up. I didn't realized how important it was to have everything for beach and Hawaii fun right on hand. Greatly added to relaxing and vacation ease. Hawi was magical- only mistake we made was to only stay one week. We will be back!"

"We loved staying in The Bamboo Cottage! It was perfectly set up with everything we could possibly need for our 5 day stay. The bowl of fruit, fresh coffee and oatmeal were perfect for our breakfast. The gardens surrounding the cottage were beautiful! The cottage was ideally located for us to visit family and enjoy the charm of Hawi. We will definitely come back!"

"What a lovely little hideaway this is! Do you dream of living like the Big Island natives? Serendipitously chosen as our second rental during our 9-day, Big Island vacation, we were finally able to wind down and slow down enough to get a really good whiff of aloha. The pluses of staying here are almost too many to list. Our hosts served us a fabulous Puerto Rican Breakfast plate (tastes like ono loco moco, but without gravy and with savory beans instead) at the Saturday Farmer's market, where you can watch local life drift by as you enjoy your meal. Do you like all things organic? Hey...this is your place. We picked up some gluten free rosemary bread here that sent us directly to heaven with no stops in between...and organically grown Kona coffee beans. Yep...there's even a coffee grinder tucked away in your kitchen. If you grow concerned about only having a 1/2-bath, you'll also get equally unconcerned when you discover the secluded 3-way warm water shower in your front yard. Our hosts grow wonderful bananas; extra sweet and with a marvelous lemony tang; all free for the picking. Beautiful, little green birds pecked away at the top of a ripened papaya perched way overhead in a tree. One last peck, the morning of our departure, and the ripened papaya was ours. Oh my....what can I say...never had any papaya that tasted as wonderful as that one. If you are a sushi lover, then you must visit the Sushi Rock restaurant in Hawi...or...if East-West fusion is your thing, perhaps you should try the Bamboo restaurant voted the Big Islands' best several years in a row. Need some ice cream? Try the Tropical Dreams ice cream at the Coffee Mill in Hawi. We were wowed many times over. We hiked the Mo'olikini Heiau and King Kamehameha I birthplace and watched the waves crash along the North Shore, with whales spouting all the while. We saw the Pololu Valley lookout and walked 1/2-way down for an unspeakable view of the valley and North Shore cliffs. We had an incredible tour of Wai'pio Valley (took the Shuttle with Douglas) and had an amazing Vanilla Experience Luncheon and tour with Jim at the Hawaii Vanilla Co. We even caught the 8:00am Sea Quest boat out of Kailua Kona for 4 special hours of snorkeling and seeing the Kona coastline. And all of this from our "home" base in Hawi, this sweet little studio with the sweetest little family you'll ever meet this side of the Mississippi, right next door. Mahalo, Jim and Leah!"

"A wonderful place to stay in if you are seeking a peaceful setting which is clean and well appointed. Great hospitality from our hosts. The north end of the island offers a new perspective on the Big Island and is well worth exploring! Thank you Carol, Chris and Justin!"
