Wonderful Peaceful Hawi Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is very well represented in the photos. I found it extremely private. The garden is surrounded by lush plants so even when you are outside on the lanai you feel like your alone.

Each morning I woke in complete silence. It was very peaceful. It is odd but there is something truly calming about looking out your window and seeing cows grazing. Every vacation home should have them.

The kitchen is fully functional. The hosts left 100% kona coffee for us which was very welcome. We cooked almost all our meals at home and had no problems.

We also enjoyed time in the hot tub.

There are pairs of boogie boards, beach chairs and an umbrella which we made full use of on our trips to the kohala beach.

The hosts were extremely wonderful people. So nice. This is a lovely place to stay and I hope to stay again.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Both Jackie and Jon were very helpful in giving us information and ideas as to where to snorkel and hike and attended to any other of our needs.

Loved the pastoral view with the cattle and their calves and the cattle egrets. Home was very nice and immaculate and we also liked the town of Hawi. Beth and Hank

Lovely and off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to stay someplace where we could get to Kona, but wouldn't be surrounded by that hubbub all the time. This was a lovely little place that was comfortable and away from it all. Everything was clean and tidy, and there were a bunch of great extras. We really enjoyed the beach chairs, cooler, and umbrella - they made our beach days extra comfortable. The kids liked the hammock and cows, and I liked the hot tub! My only suggestion would be a few more cooking implements in the kitchen. We missed having a cutting board (there is a butcher block island, but we didn't know if cutting on that was appreciated) and there was not a cookie sheet, but otherwise, we had all we needed for a wonderful stay. Jan was very nice and we were grateful to be her guests!

Cute little farm house in Hawi town , North Kohala

  • 5 of 5

This town is very small and out of the loop of most visitors but we love it this way. We visited Hawaii from California once a year for many years to different islands and found this a new experience to us. The property is in a very excluded area and surrounded by farmland with cow and horses as neighbor. The owner met us after we arrive and explained all the functions of the house as well as giving us some leads as where to go in the Island. We have a very good and quite time during our 5 days visit including the volcanoes walk early in the morning when the active lava still flowing to the sea, it was gorgeous to see it. The nearby beaches and hiking are awesome if you like walking. Took lots of pictures and drink coconut juice from fresh coconut too. If we come to stay in Hawi area again, we definitely try it one more time.

Convenient little house

  • 4 of 5

My husband, my five-year-old son and I stayed here for a week in February and found it to be a nice little place in Hawi. It's tucked back behind the owner's house but feels private due to the vegetation and pastures surrounding it. It's just a half mile from town and the great Saturday farmers market, and 30 minutes or so from the white sand beaches. The house is fairly comfortable but the kitchen is very small, so a little bit challenging to cook in. However the appliances are very nice and the kitchen has everything you need. The hot tub on the porch is nice for warming up after the beach and there are lemon trees in the yard for drinks or cooking. There are a table and chairs out front too, though it was too windy to eat out there. John and Janet were wonderful hosts!

And if this not enough, hike to the magnificent 1600 feet high Hi'ilawe falls in Waipio valley of the kings. Aloha Nui.
