About lisa and charley erck

For many years, we have been hosting family and friends, sharing with them our enjoyment of this beautiful island. We love to show and tell our favourite beaches, snorkel spots, hikes, restaurants, shops, and activities. Charley has combined his love of wood working with his passion for the ocean and surfing to create wood surfboards. Lisa, a massage therapist by trade, loves hula. We also play music together.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed 2 nights here and wish we had more time to explore the area. Lisa is a wealth of insider/islander information and tips which was so helpful! Lisa made sure when I booked that we knew that the rental is actually a wing of their home and not a separate unit. NO problem: We had our privacy, separate entrance, private bathroom, use of washer and dryer and we thoroughly enjoyed the morning's fresh coffee and scones and chatting with Lisa in the common area of their home. The grounds are gorgeous and lush as well. I highly recommend the Erck's home for a cozy, welcoming Honoka'a stay! Many thanks.

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 9-year-old son and I stayed here several nights to take in the sights nearby. Lisa and Charley were very kind, and Lisa had lots of helpful information, interesting stories, and gave us a tour of their beautiful property, including fresh lemons and oranges as well as a taste of coffee fruit. Her fresh baked muffins were scrumptious, and she even shared some amazing homemade chicken soup one evening when most of the restaurants were closed for New Year's (we did find food at Subway, but her soup was much better!). The house was tidy and nicely decorated; the beds were comfortable. Everything we needed was provided, including laundry facilities. We would love to stay again someday.

Comfortable and friendly, like a bnb

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and Charley were amazing hosts. This local knowledge guided us to some great spots in northern Hawaii for food and adventures. The guest wing was comfortable, spacious, and immaculate. The morning muffins & scones were delicious. Our boys loved the orchard tour and meeting Stella, the yard cat. We enjoyed our stay and would go back again in a heart beat.

A special stay with great folks in Honoka'a!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three (13 y/o daughter) experienced a special stay with Lisa and Charley in their beautiful home. They were gracious hosts providing all the comforts of home along with friendly and interesting company. We were given lots of helpful information and tips during our stay. Super comfortable beds and rooms, lush gardens/outdoors, yummy papaya, scones and muffins for breakfast, convenient laundry and absolutely wonderful hosts! A great choice if needing a lovely place to stay in Honoka'a.

Such a charming place filled with stories and music!

  • 5 of 5

We feel very fortunate to have stayed with Lisa and Charley! They were so kind to let our dog, Elmer, come too, even though they tried to be friendly, he was a little aloof! The house is charming and comfortable and full of windows that bring in all the beautiful outdoors. There were several "best parts'. One, the band rehearsal we got to listen too, two, light breakfast and really good coffee every morning. three, listening to Lisa tell stories about the family and about the area. and four, just hanging out in a lovely area. Perfect stay - highly recommend! Carolyn and Jaime
