Recent Hawi reviews

  • Charming, well-appointed, great views

    "We stayed four nights at the Lokahi Garden Sanctuary. A beautiful location on a working farm, this was a great launching off point to explore Hawi and the north side of the Big Island. While not walkable to the ocean, the views of the Pacific are fantastic, and you can see across to Maui on a clear day. The house is clean and well-appointed, with everything we could have needed. Our hosts were the right amount of welcoming (bringing us fruit from the farm) but otherwise hands off. Note that as a working farm, there a number of farmhands and others around during the day, but we found them unobtrusive and didn't even notice after a day or two. Highly recommend this spot to others, and would stay here again should we return to the Big Island."

  • Great Place, Great Price

    "We spent 5 days here and it worked perfectly for our family of five. The kitchen had great amenities and the bedrooms and living areas were very nice. We were always on the go so didn't spent much time there during the daytime and we didn't use the pool area, but it was nice to come "home" in the evenings to a nice comfortable condo instead of a small hotel room. There were beach towels for us to use and beach toys for the kids to use. My daughters used the boogie boards which worked well for them. They also used the buckets and other sand toys at the beach. It was also great to have a washer and dryer in the condo. We would definitely stay here again if we ever get back to the Big Island. Also, I can't say enough good things about the team at the management company. We got in late and had to check out a little late as well and they were very accommodating. Overall, a great experience from the condo itself to the customer service. Would recommend for a family of 5 or 6 or would also work well for 2 couples."

  • Plenty of space, great location

    "The home is clean, well situated and has plenty of space. We enjoyed walking to the nearby town and farmers market. Also, the instructions and recommendations were very helpful. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!"

  • 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."
