  • A Week in Dreamland....

    "I shared the House of the White Owl with my 17 year old daughter, my husband and our best friend for a week and we all agreed there was no place we would rather have been. The house is cozy and comfy and has everything you need. The fresh fruit (papaya, mangoes, bananas) that awaited our arrival was fantastic! The mangoes were the best any of us had ever had. AND we learned that there are like 60 kinds of mangoes.... who knew?? The energy of the house and land is something special- at the House of the White Owl I felt both closer to the Earth, and closer to the sky..... The clicking geckos amused us all and we encountered no biting creatures of any type ;-) The closest town, Hawi, is great for its little coffee shop and Sushi Rock is top notch. The house is surrounded by rolling green hills, a 30 min drive from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and less than 2 hours drive from a rocky hike up the lunar landscape of Mauna Kea for those souls who prefer to toil on their vacations ;-) I am basically counting the days til I can return ;-)"

  • A Memorable North Island experience

    "Coming north to Hawi, staying in the bamboo cottage was a relaxing break after jetting around the Kona area and an experience we will not soon forget. I happily give the property 5 stars because we enjoyed our 3 nights at there in the cottage so much. We especially liked the serene rural location. It was a great home base for daily trips to the North Kohala bays and beaches. Jennifer was a wonderful host and very helpful with all of our needs. We loved the design of the cottage and the furnishings especially the super comfortable bed and the outdoor shower. Her stained glasswork is extraordinary and the artful decorations and great homegrown tropical fruit really enhanced the experience. Basically everything in the cottage seems designed for comfort and relaxation even the eclectic selection of books to read. We used the kitchen for breakfasts each day and the barbeque for cooking two fish dinners. We enjoyed walking around the picturesque gardens and strolling the Hawi main street. Our stay in the Bamboo cottage was a great part of this Big Island vacation and we very much hope to return again."

  • Wonderful time!

    "My family and I had a wonderful time at Jim and Leah's place. Hawi itself is a really interesting place and close by some amazing beaches, with sand dunes, great views, the whole 9 yards. The guest house is a great home base for all your adventures, and because of the way I had set up my vacation, I had to do some work for a few days which wasn't an issue at all (good internet access). We all absolutely loved the outdoor shower. Bottom line, we really had a great time there with Jim and Leah and their family (their children are roughly the same age as ours) and would recommend it to anyone. Side note: they run a booth down at the Farmer's market that serves excellent food."

    "Do not look any further, I have stayed in many short term rentals and this is by far the best place to stay on the Big Island. The Kohala Lodge is so charming. A big bonus is viewing the animals at the Lodge and meeting Chris himself. If you want to get a sense of The Big Island, look no further. This place is SO SPECIAL, you will not want to leave. Book Now, before your dates are gone! Hopefully you can stay at this amazing place. There is nothing else like it on the Big Island!"
