Recent Hamakua Coast reviews

  • a wonderful nine days with perfect weather.

    "I have known Don and Susan since before they bought this property 40 years ago and have spent time on this incredibly beautiful land over the last 4 decades. Don and Sue are two wonderful and positive people. Their bright energy permeates the Lodge the same way the sun comes through the solid bank of windows in the large main room, instantly warming the entire house. I was fortunate enough to spend nine days in the Lodge this month (Jan 2016); my second stay. The experience just gets better every time I go. The first nights were moonless. I had forgotten how full of stars the night sky is. The green pastures and the surreal color of the ocean under the cloud elicited this: The sun, rich and warm above the green volcanic ridge, filters through the steam rising from my tea cup in the next room. Sing a song to Hamakua. 2,400 green feet above the expansive vinyl blue, to the sharp edge of the world, flat beneath the day's gathering clouds, rising white on azure. Ginger, the first perimeter, shakes hands with the sea. Little grass shacks and hula skirts, on the other side. What, here? Ohia de kine, brah, forest full. Every shade of green waving in its own vault of deep blue. Don and Sue's first home on the property was on the site of the current Lodge, so it really brings back memories for me. It could not be more beautiful, nor could Don and Susan's hospitality be more welcoming. The Lodge is clean, well appointed and spacious. My luck at having their friendship for my adult life is sublime. I hope you are lucky enough to stay here and to meet them."

  • Very nicely cared for home in a secluded location.

    "This home is exceptionally well maintained. It is nicely stocked with with items to enhance your stay - maps, books, snorkeling equipment, buggy boards plus kitchen and bathroom supplies. Everything is in good working order and well thought out. The location is great if you want to be alway from the crowds. We had a great time and would highly recommend this home."

  • Great Place for Families

    "The home's location is truly "Magical". I traveled to the home with 6 adults and 4 children, and we had an amazing time. The grounds that the home are on were spectacular - the view was magnificent - and the children loved the pool. My family does a lot of traveling, and this is one of our all time favorite stops. We were at the home for 10 days, and we did not want to leave. I would definitely recommend!!"

  • IDYLLIC PLACE!

    "This place is awesome, truly awe-some. If it's a unique Hawaiian experience with a fabulous view you're looking for, this is the place. Great place to relax. Richard, your host, is very gracious and provides you with both the essentials for the house and also some wonderful extras. It's not a "luxurious" experience--it's an authentic one. You'll think you're lost just before you arrive--but the view is unmistakable. I do believe it's the most beautiful view we've had anywhere. And my kids (and my husband and myself!) LOVED the cows! They were hysterical...would come running--faster than my dog!--to get some food. Great memory :). Hope to return--and next time, we'll stay for a month. Mahalo nui loa."
