Recent Hawi reviews

  • Great secluded cabin

    "Had a great, relaxing time in this cabin in the woods. Was on the Big Island for a wedding in Hawi and this cabin was just perfect. Owners are super nice and understanding. I would definitely stay here again."

  • 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 ;-)"

  • Cozy Cottage right on the Kohala Coast Line!!

    "This property is unique in that it is nestled in a very quiet and upscale neighborhood and affords complete privacy for those seeking to disconnect and unwind. With panoramic views and the ocean just steps from cottage, we couldn't have been more pleased! With beautiful well kept grounds, fruit and citrus trees, a private pool and a tennis court, this property was better than a resort for having it all to yourself. The cottage takes you back in time and the vibe is definitely Old Hawaiian which we loved. Nothing fancy, but we liked that it was authentic. There is wi-fi and cable TV if you must. The cottage is well stocked with everything you need to prepare your own dinners and believe me, you will want to have your meals here! If you do venture out, there are two restaurants worthy of mention. Both in Waimea, the "Red Water Cafe" is casual and has an excellent lunch and dinner menu. I recommend the Fresh sushi rolls their home made cheese burgers. "Merrimans" is more upscale and pricy, but the food, ambience and service there is good. Get your fresh fish at Hale L'a Da Fish House. Bring a cooler, they will provide ice. If you dive or snorkel, you can walk out your door and enjoy the reef with beautiful fish and coral. Careful for the rocks and entry, early morning is best for right in front of the house. There is another entry point a short walk to the left of property at the public access called the "keyhole" that provides a little easier entry. There, you will see more people as it is popular with locals and tourists. I do not recommend swimming out front unless you are strong and experienced. The currents can be strong and change often. There is great walk up sandy beach at Mauna Kea which is a short drive away. Perfect for kids and adults, you can spend the day. If you like cats, and want to take a walk, there is a feral cat colony at the end of the road, but you must take the beach trail to the left of property, then go to end and turn into the parking lot at the public park to get to it. The cat colony will be on your left . If you take food, they all will come out which is pretty amazing! There are food and water bowls as they are fed by locals and a few even will let you pet them. Overall, our stay at the cottage was a perfect fit for us. I would recommend it for those who enjoy Old Hawaiian style, privacy, tranquility and being on the ocean. This was our second visit to Puako and we will be back again in the near future."

  • Tranquil, peaceful, invigorating and renewing

    "The heavy sigh you exhale as you arrive at this lush, verdant property is only the first of many you will experience while staying at Bamboo Cottage. "Can this really be our home for our stay?", you will ask, after another relaxing sigh. Yes! This wonderfully appointed and beautifully situated cottage will become your home, and the charming village of Hawi will become your hometown. Jennifer and Jeff are the most welcoming and accommodating of hosts. Fruit from their trees - lemon, orange, grapefruit, avocado - graced our the kitchen counter when we arrived. Jennifer showed me where to pluck some ginger root, which I used in a vinaigrette on island greens one evening when we chose to dine-in. The kitchen is small but incredibly efficient (I am a culinary professional and this was, by far, one of the best kitchens I've ever cooked in. And the view does not hurt, either!). Shop at the Hawi farmer's market on Saturday for island produce, fruit and other goodies and enjoy a night or two on the lanai after preparing your own dinner! The town of Hawi is funky, fun and friendly with an island vibe you are not likely to find anywhere else. Bamboo is a favorite restaurant of ours and if you are lucky, local son and slack key guitar virtuoso John Keawe will be playing there. Sushi Rock rocks, too! It does rain frequently in North Kohala, and the wind can be blustery at times, but just sit on the lanai, read a good book, listen to birdsong, watch the clouds, and catch a glimpse of Maui across the channel. This will make for a special time on a special island, in a very special place, the Bamboo Cottage. We look forward to our next stay at our home away from home! Aloha!"
