  • AWESOME | IDEAL | PERFECT

    "The property exceeded our expectation. It was ideal central location for our family of four for hiking for waterfalls and visiting Volcano National Park. The house was surrounded by tropical foliage which made you feel you were on the island by your self. The view from the back porch was breath taking. My husband and I enjoyed eating our breakfast on the back porch every morning listening to the birds, frogs, cows and watching the rain. Lyndy was great. She let us check in early and checked in on us to make sure everything was going great. Having the smoothie stand across the street was the icing on the cake. We enjoyed Cafe 100 for dinner. They are known for their Moco Locos and are very reasonably priced. Big Island pizza was also very tasty. For snorkeling we recommend SeaQuest in Kona. You definitely need to visit Volcano National Park and see the flowing lava at night. As for hiking, there are plenty of places to go (easy-strenuous) that you won't be disappointed. Mahalo!"

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Being in the rainforest made it lush and green.

    "The house was supplied with everything we needed. It was so nice to come home to every night and sit on the lanai and watch the stars. Located 3 miles up the hill from the highway it was so peaceful and serene. We were able to visit nearby waterfalls and zip line just miles away. I highly recommend this home"
