Dreamtime in Paradise
Wonderful property & a wonderful host.
Mahalo nui. Enjoyed getting to know you. A hui ho.
Beautiful off the grid....gardens, pools, hot tub, and complete privacy.
Susan’s a great host and the stay was quiet and peaceful in her gated, award winning gardens. Short drive to awesome beaches. We loved sitting on the deck looking put at the ocean, enjoying the sounds of birds. Great mattresses too!
Mahalo for your kind words. Very glad you had a great time. A hui ho.
We loved the garden and the lanai, and overall felt the property had everything we needed with the exception of laundry services (but we knew that going into it). We recommend it!
Wonderful garden, stunning view
The apartment is comprised of a spacious bedroom, bathroom and a combination living room-kitchenette. The kitchen is furnished adequately for light, vacation cooking. Dining is out on the beautiful lanai, which overlooks the garden, and down the mountainside to the ocean. There is no air conditioning, but the fans and cool mountain breezes make it unnecessary. Entry is down a very steep driveway and through a locked gate. Best to be prepared for that; arrive in the daytime if possible and read the arrival instructions before setting out. The best feature of the place is the incredible garden. The owner (and her gardening staff) have lovingly nurtured a stunning array of flowering and fruiting plants; she kindly gave us a tour. There is a lovely pool with the same amazing view down toward Honaunau Bay. Apart from birdsong, the place is utterly quiet and peaceful. We hope to return someday.
Mahalo for your stay and kind thoughts. It was lovely meeting you both.
Susan was very accommodating and description of the apartment was accurate. The area, view, accommodations, pool, spa were wonderful. When we needed anything, Susan was more than happy to assist. We prepared most of our meals in house but did frequent the “Loco Wraps” next to Choice mart 3 times. Great wraps, Acai bowls, and smoothies. We did an adventure every day. We
Had a great time... Thanks Susan!
Mahalo for your stay and kind words. Look forward to your return to Ho’onanea. Aloha.
What a beautiful place! The gardens are exquisite, leaving one breathless no matter what direction you look. This is a very peaceful place to stay with sights and sounds of a lush tropical jungle. The birds are bountiful. Wonderful pool, balcony, artwork, woodwork - I highly recommend a stay with Susan.
Mahalo nui for your kind thoughts.
