  • The best family vacation!

    "Hale Kawika was the perfect home for us on our week's stay on the big island. We had a family of 8 - including grandparents, aunt, uncle, and our 6 month old baby. The property is amazing and we found ourselves sitting on the lanai all day and enjoying the sunrises and sunsets, all the while sipping fresh squeezed lemonade from the juiciest lemon trees found on the grounds. The photos posted are nice, but they don't do this place justice as it's simply an amazing place! We arrived a bit early, and also needed a late checkout due to our flight and the managers were more than accommodating - thank you so much! Pros: - Gorgeous views every day. Huge Lanai to enjoy it. - Peaceful and quiet. - Very clean and everything's in great/new condition. - Huge kitchen that's well stocked. - Master and en suite are huge and amazing. - All the amenities you could need: they had a crib, booster seat, and toys for our baby. Also have pool toys and extra beach gear (umbrella, snorkle gear, etc.) - Fresh fruits around the property - we had fresh Avocados, Passion Fruit, and Lemons everyday. Also found some Papaya and breadfruit! - Heat pool and hot tub (we used it every day!) - Wonderful staff, Lisa and Herb were super responsive. - Short drive to town, not too far away from all the action and shopping. - Great Coffee roasters just down the road. Cons (not that there really any!): - A bit difficult to find the first time, especially at night! (Make sure you have a GPS!) - Rooster doesn't understand the concept of a sleeping baby We will definitely be coming back for our second vacation!!!"

  • Great place to stay

    "Our stay started with detailed driving directions from the airport and it got better from there. It is impossible to describe the view as you walk down the hill to the lower unit of the building and then you realize the view is the same from the sliding doors in the bedroom and the outdoor kitchen. During the day we explored the island but choose to come back for a peaceful dinner overlooking the city rather than eating out. The unit itself is modern and well equipped. It has a large bath and bedroom as well as a comfortable living room with a wet bar. If it is important to you there is a large HD tv in the living room. My only suggestion would be to have a pair of binoculars available. This was our first visit to the island and if we come back this will be our place to stay."

  • Fabulous place to stay!

    "Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful... Great place to start the day! Great place to end the day! We stayed 11 nights and are so glad we did. The fabulous architecture and details such as stacked huge windows that open to make the outdoors come in are stunning. Amazing attention to detail. We highly highly recommend the Snell Farmhouse. Serenity!! The accommodations are extremely nice, well appointed, and well thought out. This is a very special tropical setting. The grounds are well taken care of and a pleasure to look at. We bought fresh fruit down the road at a local produce stand and had a marvelous dinner at Holoaloa Cafe. We ate papayas and passion fruit on the lanai every morning- what a treat! Every evening we rushed home to see the sunset. We felt like a local. Went coffee tasting at Hula Daddy. We did a lot of driving, but I wouldn't change our location in the farmhouse with it's great view and wonderful infinity pool. Pictures don't do this place justice. Blankets are available if you get chilly. Everything yo need is there. We did bring ear plugs based on a previous review. (Yes, we did use them. No worries) The advantage of this place: We were not cooped up in a condo elbow to elbow with other people. Great view. We were able to "get away" and really relax. Thank you Mo for sharing your treasure!! Ramona and Bill"

  • Lovely Rental on the Big Island

    "My husband and I stayed at the rental for 8 nights. We really enjoyed all the adventures the island has to offer, and the rental was the perfect place to unwind after a long day of sun and fun. The roosters do provide an early morning wake up call, but we kinda liked the sounds of nature vs. alarm clock. The unit is appointed with everything for 2 people, including towels, soap, dishes, ect. Very clean and comfortable. The grill and patio was great for a dinner at "home". We would definitely stay here again. The owners make everything very easy."
