  • A Volcano Village Find!

    "What a great place to stay in Volcano Village— much larger than a bungalow. We stayed four nights and loved it! The rental is surrounded by beautiful, lush scenery of gigantic ferns, tall trees, and fragrant flowers. The house is clean and has everything you could imagine-- a fully stocked, large kitchen, a library of reading material, artwork, two very comfortable beds, washer/dryer, and lots of large windows to enjoy the lovely scenery typical of Volcano Village. The on-site owner, Vicky, was kind and accommodating. We greatly appreciated her telling us about the Big Island volcanoes and taking us to the observatory. We would definitely recommend staying here."

  • Our first stay in paradise

    "We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday at this beautiful, spacious condo. It is very well appointed with everything you need to enjoy a holiday in 'your home away from home'. It is close to the beaches, shops and the pool is 1 minute away-everything is just so easy! The owner is lovely and always easy to get in touch with, and we always felt in good hands."

  • Wonderful stay in great condo!

    "We spent a week in Bonnie & Steve's condo celebrating our anniversary and were extremely happy. The condo was well-furnished with everything you need to have all the comforts of home, was very clean and quiet, had a great view of the mountains and sunrise each morning, and a fabulous pool and hot tub area. The pool was very long and we were able to swim laps. Also, you can easily walk out to the main road and walk two loops around for a near 6-mile walk. The restaurants and shops were only about a mile walk, or an easy drive if not wearing comfortable shoes. We really didn't want to leave! The condo decor was lovely, and when we return to the Big Island, we will definitely stay here! Oh, for the previous reviews talking about problems with the front door key, one solution is to never turn the key to the right. Just turn it to the left each time, and you will have no problems at all. The door self locks on the way out. The Tropics Ale House is literally just steps from the condo complex and has fabulous pizza and reasonable prices."

  • Best Value on the Island

    "WOW what a place!!!! And such a great value. My "neat-freak-relatives" were green with envy when they saw this place. Where are you going to sleep 6 adults, in very comfortable beds, in a large house, for the price of one, 450 square foot, mid range hotel room? Nowhere else on this Island. This is not a condo, this is a house, and a house with a great view and some privacy. It is decorated and furnished more like a house than the typical VRBO. The view is fantastic, and the house is so well equipped. The Appliances are top of the line. We watched sunsets on the deck every night. We stayed for 4 nights to extend our time on the Island at the end of a family vacation. Joe, the owner was a joy to work with. The onsite help greeted us and she was very helpful. This is only 15 minute drive from the best beaches on the Island and we saved a fortune by providing our own breakfast, lunch and some dinners. Car rental was very cheap for our full sized car (http://www.discounthawaiicarrental.com/). This is also much closer to the Volcano side of the Island where much of the tourist stuff is located. The entrance to the new saddle road, that goes over the center of the Island to Hilo, is less than 10 minutes from here. And it is now a smooth highway. We also got some great trade winds. This makes it much cooler at night than staying down in Kona, where there are no good beaches. I highly recommend this gem...you will not be disappointed. the pictures do not do it justice. Next time we are coming back with friends."

Hawaii Travel Tips

The eight islands collectively known as Hawaii offer abundant opportunities for surf, sun and scenic beauty. Here are the top things to do in Hawaii among the four most popular islands for visitors:

Hawaii

Also known as “The Big Island” to prevent confusion, the island of Hawaii is the largest in the chain. Here are the must-see and dos:

- Drive to Hilo off of Highway 220 and take a short hike through Akaka Falls State Park to see both Kahuna and Akaka falls, which are gorgeous.

- Take a guided tour of wild, verdant Waipio Valley. You’ll see the Kaluahine Waterfalls, which rush down a nearby cliff and into the ocean, as well as lush greenery at every turn. Go on a horseback riding tour with Na’alapa Stables or take a rough-riding tour on your own ATV with Ride the Rim.

- Check out the well-known Hilo Farmers Market to taste and purchase some of the best local Hawaiian goods: seafood, produce, clothing and crafts. It’s open every day, but the most popular days are Wednesday and Saturday. You’ll find everything from pineapples to bongo drums sold by more than 100 vendors here.

- Hit the legendary beaches. Some of the most beautiful are Papakolea Beach - it’s challenging to get to, but is one of the only beaches with olive green-colored sand in the U.S. - and Hapuna Beach State Park. Don’t miss a trip to the more remote Kealakekua Bay on the west side for excellent snorkeling and views of Spinner dolphins and sea turtles.

- Take a stroll in Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park for a dose of Hawaiian history in the form of detailed ki’i wood carvings and temples. You’ll also spot Honu’s here, which are Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.

Maui

Maui is known for its luxurious Pacific beauty. Here are the top places to see on this island:

- Catch the sunrise at the volcanic crater in Haleakala National Park. It’s a 30-minute drive from base to crater and early mornings here are cold, but the views are amazing.

- Don’t miss the Old Lahaina Luau - supposedly one of the best and most traditional in the state. The Lahaina Luau lasts three hours, accompanied by dancing, roasted pork, lomi lomi salmon and mashed taro.

- If you’re staying in Kahului, a popular Maui city, take a scenic 55-mile drive to Hana. Pack a picnic and stop along the way - this stunning winding drive over lush hills high above the ocean is well worth a slow trip.

- Nothing looks crazier than the Kaihalulu Beach in Hana. The exotic red sand beach, towering trees and deep turquoise water provides a seascape like nothing you’ve seen before.

- Check out the world’s largest dormant volcano in Haleakala National Park. It will take you two hours to reach the summit, but there are many scenic overlooks along the way. Hike popular Pipiwai trail - a four-mile stretch around the Seven Sacred Pools of Oheo Gulch, where you can stop for a relaxing swim near tiny waterfalls.

Kauai

Here are some of the best things to do on this pretty island, which is the farthest land north and west of the chain:

- Visit the magnificent and breathtaking Na Pali Coast, where sharp cliffs of varying heights jut into the sky, creating an other-worldly effect near the ocean. One of the best ways to see Na Pali is via helicopter tour from Sunshine Helicopters, which also takes you over the vibrant green Waimea Canyon.

- If you’re an experienced hiker, dare yourself to take the 11-mile muddy and rocky hike on Kalalau Trail for an unparalleled view of Na Pali.

- Hit the links at Poipu Bay Golf Course. See if you can keep your mind on the game while surrounded by acres of tropical beauty, ocean views and even cute creatures, like the turtles, monk seals and geese that often hang out on the greens.

- Lounge on the beaches. The locals hang out at a relatively calm beach called Kalapaki, but there’s also Po’ipu, Lumahai and Hanakapi’ai beaches that are perfect for sunbathing.

- See the Kilauea Lighthouse on the northernmost point, not far from the National Wildlife Refuge.

- Take surf or stand-up paddleboard lessons at the Hamilton School of Surfing or rent kayaks, boogie boards and pedal boats from Hanalei River Watersports on the Hanalei Bay.

Oahu

Oahu is the most populous Hawaiian island and home to Honolulu. Here are the best things to do here:

- Head to world-famous Waikiki and Sunset beaches and Waimea Bay to sunbathe and watch surfers. Sprawling Kailua Beach Park is perfect for families. You can watch windsurfers with colorful kites, swim in the cerulean waters or have a picnic on the sand.

- Go hiking at Diamond Head, a 300,000 year-old crater created by one massive volcanic eruption. The best time to go is in the early morning when the temperatures are cooler.

- Visit the lovely Honolulu Museum of Art to see Georgia O’Keeffe’s Maui landscape paintings, an excellent collection of Asian art and even some works by Picasso and van Gogh.

- Pay homage at the Pearl Harbor and U.S.S. Arizona Memorial. It’s located where the famous invasion took place in 1941, you can even ride with a U.S. Navy boat to see the memorial up close and pay your respects.

- Check out ‘Iolani Palace, which once belonged to King Kalakaua and his sister Queen Liliuokalani. It’s an interesting sight as it stands out next to other Hawaiian architecture.
