  • Tropical Paradise

    "The View House was everything I dreamed of for our Hawaiian vacation. It's a beautiful house with big rooms - pretty and comfortable, with plenty of space for storage. We were a group of four - two couples - and we especially liked having access to a second shower downstairs next to the spa area. It was lovely to shower and see the ocean! The laundry facilities on site were another practical plus. But the best feature is the stunning location and view. The view of the ocean from the master bedroom and house, including lanei, is amazing. The location also suited us, being close enough to access the North Kohala beaches and the bigger town of Waimea, without all the people at the Kona resorts. It was very convenient for the Waipio Valley Lookout and Honoka'a, but about an hour from either Kona or Hilo. We loved the quiet setting with access to the orchard: we picked some fruit and also heard and saw a fair amount of animals: cattles on a nearby property, feral pigs and the ubiquitous coqui frogs each night (which are all over the island - we didn't mind the noise and found it rather soothing). It rained most nights and often during the day - usually only briefly. I guess that must be why this part of the Island is so lush. We quickly learned that the West side usually remained sunny, so this is no problem, just something to be aware of. The owners, Marcel and Connie, were away during our stay but communicated well with us throughout our stay, even warning of an upcoming tropical storm. We were made to feel very welcome by them and by the caretakers, Marcus and Shigeko (speaking to them about said storm was very reassuring - in the end the storm weakened over the Island and mostly missed us). The linen closet was well stocked with soft clean towels, including beach towels, and previous guests have left lots of useful beach gear: boogie boards, umbrella, etc. Our only frustration - and this is a very picky point - was that the drawers in both bedrooms tended to stick in the humidity. We had ants in the kitchen but that was not helped by our reluctance to do the dishes quickly. When we arrived the place was spotless and we felt instantly at home. I already miss seeing the orchard, palm trees and deep blue of the Pacific every morning. Cannot recommend the property highly enough."

  • Best VRBO on the Island!

    "This was an amazing place to stay! Yes, it is a type of Ohana but the way it is situated it is very private from the owners house. Very clean, comfortable bed and everything you would need for a vacation. The view is drop dead gorgeous and the town of Honokaa is very charming. One of Rachel (the owner) sons Daniel took us on a hike to the sea cliffs, it was an unbelievable view. If we return to the Big Island we would definitely stay there again, it was a highligt of the trip. Also reasonable priced."

  • Rainforest Gulch

    "Halawa House was a wonderful place to stay! Very comfortable, great screened in porch, sounds of running stream...even evening pig crossing sounds(wish we had seen them!). We hiked down to the black beach at end of road (also great place for sunrise!), took a afternoon trip to Mauna Kea, went to the farmers market, had a tasty dinner at Bamboo, but also just relaxed! Would recommend highly! Thanks David & Susan!"
