Recent Hawi reviews
"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!"

"This property was exceptional and suited all the needs of my family ranging in age 80 down to 18 months old. The view was stunning and the Kohala mountain breezes and nightly rain showers a nice respite from the unusual heat in Kona and Hawi. The house was outfit with everything we possibly needed, and those items we didn't think we needed but were certainly glad to have. The spirit of Aloha certainly resides here and with the wonderful host Jileen who filled the home with fresh fruit, flowers, and little touches like lotion and soaps. The star gazing from the large patio is the best I've experienced, including from middle America farm country! We loved the separate living spaces (great for afternoon naps for young and old) and enjoyed cooking breakfast or dinners in the well stocked kitchen before or after we headed out to explore for the day. Although the home is further away from the Volcano and Kona than some places, it was near to all the lesser known gems we cared to visit while on the Big Island and set alongside one of the most scenic drives in the Islands. We couldn't wait to come home each day. The friendly insects and animals only added to the charm--we've fondly nicknamed the bull "Ferdinand." The house is well designed and seemed larger than it actually is-- gazing at the view of Maui's Haleakala out the bathroom sink window as you get ready for the day was a treat. The only negative was poor cell phone reception from our carriers, but the WIFI worked great. Thank you for the wonderful home and your hospitality. We can't wait to return to this little slice of Big Island heaven!"

"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!"
