The property is very clean and well maintained. Modern conveniences in a lush quiet environment. The owners went out of their way to make us comfortable. Providing a pack-n-play for our 8-month grandson. Our 5-year-old grandson enjoyed being able to explore and play without fear of bothering neighbors. The views of the ocean, the foliage, and the volcano is spectacular. We loved hearing the coqui frogs sing at night and the cool breezes. We highly recommend this property for a vacation retreat.

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get a feel for a different side to Hawaii away from the crowds then this is the place. Amazing views, comfortable house and great location near to Hilo. We loved the village of Honomu down the road for coffee and browsing the little shops but also travelled further away to volcano national park and Mauna Kea for star gazing.

Andrea made the entire booking and arrival process very easy.

We would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay.

We were really seeking some peace and solitude on this vacation and, boy, this is what we got! When we drove to the Kona side of the island during our stay, we were overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle, crowds and ultra-tourism, and couldn't wait to be back at Akaka Farms House, our home away from home. Breakfast on the lanai every morning was therapeutic. Loved the new deck and hot tub. Loved the local vibe, local food, and local folks. Honomu Town is a blast from the past. The views from this hill-top hideaway are breathtaking, just like the pictures portray. Thank you, Andrea, for letting us stay in your lovely home! We can't wait to return.

Wonderful Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

The minimum rating for this home is 5 stars. While we have stayed at other homes in the general Hilo area, this home is out in the open air near the Akaka Falls and simply a relaxing property with all the amenities. We will certainly want to rent this home again in the future.

Beautiful and peaceful Akaka Farms

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to get away from it all! We had a fabulous stay at Akaka Farms. The property is absolutely gorgeous and totally private with big sweeping views from the ocean to the mountains - even out to the snow covered peaks of Mauna Kea. Two-levels of decks wrap around the house taking in the views, and include a Jacuzzi - perfect for winding down after a busy day to watch the stars at night. The house is well appointed, very comfortable and very clean, and Stephen the manager was extremely helpful. We loved every minute of our stay, and will definitely be back!!
