Absolutely Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home with amazing views! It would have been so easy to spend the entire day on one of the lovely lanais, but there is so much to explore on the Big Island, we didn't. We did have leisurely breakfasts and dinners outside though, and it was heavenly!

We enjoyed the well-equipped kitchen, and modern appliances. Actually, of the many lovely VBRO places that we've stayed in Hawaii, this was the best equipped in every respect.

Another plus was the attentive manager, who really seemed to care that we were happy, and we were!

Next trip to the Big Island, I will be hoping this gem of a place is available!

Lovely home with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay! Lovely home with three comfortable bedrooms, beautiful porch where we spent lots of time reading, eating, and taking in the scenery. Love the location of the home (near beaches and not a far drive to Hawi or Waimea.) We had a wonderful stay!

Very nice stay - great views!

  • 5 of 5

The house was well appointed and very comfortable, and the view from the lanai was fantastic. The north Kohala coast is a favorite because of the dryer weather and easy access to beaches and diving with Kohala Divers.

We have very good restaurants 3 minutes away. The impressive and sacred Pu'ukohola Heiau National Historical Site is 4 miles from us and is worth a visit. Spencer Beach Park, Mauna Kea Beach, Hapuna Beach State Park, Waialea (Beach 69) are 10 minutes away by car. World famous golf courses are located at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and Hapuna Prince Beach Hotel as well as Mauna Lani and Waikoloa Beach Resort which are 10 minutes further south.

Hawi town and Kapa'au can be reached within 20 minutes by taking the very scenic Route 270 along the coastline north. These quaint towns have galleries, shops and some very good restaurants. At the end of Route 270 you will reach the beautiful Polulu Valley Lookout. You can hike to the bottom of the trail and will be rewarded with spectacular coastline views and a beautiful black sand beach (be aware of very strong currents in the Ocean).
