  • The perfect winter getaway!!

    "Our stay at the Mango House was nothing short of amazing. My wife and I were looking for an escape from city life and from the East coast winter cold, and this beautiful home provided just the break that we needed. As you arrive at the Mango House you immediately realize that you are in entering your own private slice of paradise. The house sits on a spacious lot full of tropical flora. The sights and sounds of the rain forest surround you. We especially enjoyed being lulled to sleep by the ocean surf, wildlife and the wind rustling the palm fronds at night. The house itself is tastefully decorated and very well appointed. The beds were incredibly comfortable. The den and kitchen are open and inviting allowing for a perfect environment for preparing dinner and relaxing. All the appliances were in perfect working condition. Our favorite feature by far of the Mango house were the lanais. The lanai on the first floor spans the entire perimeter of the house with comfortable lounges and tables. We had many a post-beach beverage on the downstairs porch. We also took full advantage of the grill on the first floor lanai. The upstairs lanai, while smaller provides the perfect spot to have a cup of coffee while watching the sun rise or to gaze at the plethora of stars at night. Shortly after arriving your will fall into the rhythm of 'island life.' Be sure to take advantage of the local fruit offerings in the neighborhood. You will find fruit stands at the end of driveways; most accepting payment via the honor method. Be sure to also stop by the Kohala Coffee Mill. It was truly an incredible experience. Mahalo Mango House!"

  • Peaceful Rainy Getaway

    "The Bamboo suite is beautiful and quiet. It is connected to a larger rental on the property, but still felt very private. We hardly saw our neighbors. It rained nearly every night during our early March stay, but it was only a 30 minute drive to the sunny coast. It was nice to cool off a bit on the Lanai after a day at the beach. Our only complaints are that the outdoor shower did not drain properly and the internet connection is hit or miss. Otherwise we had a lovely stay. Also, make sure to stop at GJ's Huli Chicken for lunch! It was the best (and cheapest) meal that we had in Hawaii. They set up a bbq next door to the Hawi visitors center on Thursdays."

  • Amazing

    "This place is simple in a great way and totally met our expectations. My partner and I love the outdoors and were looking for a peaceful experience, and this place fit the bill. It's perfect for two people; any more than that would feel cramped. We have a million other places that we want to visit, but we hope to make it back to stay here again in the future."

  • Delightful Retreat

    "We had a lovely time at the Banyan House. The house is delightfully tucked away down a secluded driveway, and we couldn't have been happier with the setting and privacy. The house is clean and comfortable, with a magnificent kitchen, a killer outdoor shower, a stocked closet of beach toys, and endless Lanais. At first we were disappointed with the distance of the ocean view, but we came to enjoy the contrasts of land, water, trees, and sky we could see from the upstairs Lanai. We found the sunny backyard perfect for morning yoga, and spent the evenings eating and talking around the enormous kitchen table. Each morning at the Banyan house brings an absolute cacophony of bird song at dawn. We enjoyed it, but it might be disturbing for some people. The house was ideally located for exploring the wonders of North Kohala. We loved walking the cliffs at Koekea beach park, and the quick access to Pololu Valley and both Kapaau and Hawi town. The drive to the Kohala resort areas and beaches, and up to Waimea wasn't bad. But it was a bit far for trips to Kona, or Hilo/Volcano. We enjoyed being surrounded by the beauty and tropical lushness of North Kohala, but if your vacation plans include the rest of the island, be prepared to spend some time in the car."
