Stunning views, clean, comfortable, and the hosts were welcoming!
The home was comfortably furnished, clean, and well-stocked. If you plan to stay on the northern end of the island, this home is an excellent and affordable choice for a couple or single traveler.
Studio Cottage with Fantastic View!
We enjoyed our stay at Jim and Kim's rental. The rental was clean and had all that we needed. There is a slight hill to climb to get up to the rental, plus stairs. The view from the lanai is gorgeous as it overlooks open land to the ocean. We watched sailboats, barges and ocean liners go by. The town of Honokaa is a small, friendly area to shop and eat. Recommend Gramma's Kitchen for breakfast and lunch. Along with Tex Drive-in for all meals - and malasadas! Overall, just a very nice place for a single or couple to stay.. Definitely plan on staying there again! Thank you, Jim and Kim for your hospitality!
Jim and Kim have the perfect place for a couple looking to explore both sides of the island. About an hour from both Hilo and Kona, activities are not far from reach, and sanctuary from the hot hustle of Kona was a must for us. Sanctuary describes this rental well infact. Kim has an amazing tropical garden surrounding the house and both Jim and Kim are very respectful of your vacation privacy.
The bottom line is we are simple people, and this place fit us well. It’s better than luxury, it felt like home.
Charming spot near Honoka'a
This is a great little studio Ohana near Honoka'a town. The studio has a wonderful, unobstructed view of the ocean. The neighbors property has some cows grazing which just adds to the tranquility. 5 minutes from Honoka'a for conveniences. Equidistant from Hilo or Kona airports and proximity to the Waipio Valley make this a great little spot for a single person or a couple to use as a base to explore the Big Island! I had no issues finding the place and Jim was there to greet me when I arrived. Jim and Kim are gracious hosts. They live right next door - but there were no privacy issues. I needed to do some work during my stay, and the wifi was strong - no problem at all. I was kind of surprised by the lack of a cleaning fee. Jim said it is important to him that people have an affordable place to visit Hawaii - so refreshing to hear! I highly recommend.
We arrived at this wonderful house and couldn't have been happier with our stay. The owners are amazing, they were there if you needed anything, but your privacy and comfort was their primary concern. The house is spotless, the bed was comfortable, and there is a blow-up mattress if you need it. The kitchenette has everything you need to cook a nice meal including plenty of pots, pans, utensils and plates/cups. The island breeze was wonderful and refreshing and the views of the ocean were beautiful. The bathroom looks brand new and toiletries are provided. Thank-you for the hospitality and wonderful stay! We definitely recommend staying at this amazing vacation rental!
Cozy little guest house away from all the noise. Located on a hill with dense jungle plants. Perfect location in between Kona and Hilo with tons of stuff to do only a small drive away. There is a farmers market on Sunday two minutes away. The bed was comfortable, the couch was comfortable, the bathroom was nice and clean, they have everything you need to cook a meal and even store leftovers, they provide towels, there is a large tv with cable, they have WiFi, and everything else you could need when it comes to a home away from home. Jim and Kim were great hosts who are full of knowledge about the island. At night coqui frogs croak which we found nice. There are tons of little gold dusted day geckos that are fun to watch. Take mosquito repellant if you plan to be outside at night. I would stay here again without hesitation. Thanks for the great stay!
