  • 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"

  • Awesome..

    "Lovely place to stay, the view was amazing. Waking up to the valley every morning was the best part of my day.. I had fun picking fruit after Long day out.. The bed was very comfortable. I usually have trouble sleeping on beds other than my own, but one night I managed to sleep 12 hours.. Great place to relax. The only comment I have that is not great was that the knifes were not the best for chopping.. As someone who loves to cook and appreciate having a kitchen when away from home, having a good knife makes all the difference. The kitchen was well stocked, and that was nice. I had an amazing time. I plan on staying there again."

  • Splendid home away from home!

    "We loved our stay and found virtually everything we needed plus plenty of extras! This was a good home base for touring both sides of the island as well as Volcano and South Point. Waipi'o Valley was a little hard to access because of heavy rains - our trek on foot ended prematurely due to a crunched ankle - don't attempt that hill if it's wet! Luckily, I was blessed with walking stick someone left on the deck that helped me around for the rest week. We did make it down eventually by Jeep (4wd) and it was as beautiful as promised. We appreciated the excellently supplied kitchen and enjoyed fresh fruit smoothies every morning. Take advantage of the Farmers Markets in nearby Waimea! Nighttime can be a bit noisy with the frogs but no one had trouble sleeping. The trick is to wear yourself out during the day. This is a great place for anyone that wants to be away from the crowds and doesn't mind driving - I enjoy sightseeing so it was perfect for me. Our teens got a little bit of car fever, but those Kohala beaches are close enough to make up for it. It was a lovely vacation and I can honestly say the Hamakua Coast is my favorite part of the Big Island. We will be back!"
