Recent Hamakua Coast reviews

  • Keolamaula is magical - an amazingly special place at an incredible value

    "I know that's a lot of adjectives (above), but Kaye's farm is a real find. The location is perfect for exploring the Hamakua coast and beyond North Kohala to the West and Hilo to the south are easy to get to); the beds are comfortable; Bichi the pig and the other farm animals were charming; the weather (everything from sun to rain, never too hot) was great; and Kaye and Sally are wonderful people and perfect hosts. Our family (my spouse and I and our two six-year-old boys) had a great time and at the end of each day my littlest said "Mommy, I want to go home," meaning Keolamaula."

  • 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."

  • 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!!"

  • A little bit of paradise

    "We spent four days at the cottage and never stopped marveling at the jaw-dropping view. Tucked away at the end of a long driveway, privacy was complete. The cottage, as others have noted, is old (70's I would guess?) with furnishings of the era, but we wouldn't have it any other way! The effect was comfortable and sweetly nostalgic, with an overlay of Hawaiiana that is perfect for the place. The bed was comfortable and the cottage was very clean. We love to cook and were pleased to find that the kitchen was well-equipped with the basics. The only thing we would recommend adding is a charcoal grill. Since we cooked in most nights, we did not explore the limited dining offerings of the immediate area, but found the market in Honoka'a completely adequate for our needs. The little craft shop and Waipi'o van station on the road just before you arrive at the cottage carries the wonderful local Tropical Dreams Ice Cream-- a must eat! We drove to Waimea (not close, but not far either) for Sunday brunch at Merriman's, which we highly recommend. The Hamakua Coast is gorgeous, but not filled with "attractions". For the most part, we were content to explore the small towns and coastal access points. The Waipi'o Valley, the Pepe'ekeo Scenic Drive (along with the Onomea Bay Hike), and the Hawaii Tropical Botanic Garden were places we especially enjoyed. We also took the Hawaiian Vanilla Company tour, which was low-key and nicely done. (We would recommend touring in the spring when the vanilla plants bloom.) The lunch items, all made with vanilla, were delicious."
