  • Idillic setting and wonderful owners

    "We stayed 3 nights at this fantastic property. When we drove up, we all had our jaws drop. It is even lovelier than the pictures. The house sits high up the hill from the little town of Hawi and overlooks the ocean. When the clouds move out of the way, you can see Maui across the channel. The house is a beautiful lodge home that really fits the character of the area (the Parker Ranch/Waimea area horse properties). The owners live in a house screened by trees down the hill. You'd never know they were there unless you had a question or needed something, and then they were right there to ask. They have horses and sheep in the pasture just below the house and treats to feed them. My kids were in heaven waking up every day to an awesome tree swing, hammock in the trees, huge lawn, and animals to interact with. We loved sitting out on the huge front porch and watching the sunsets and stars. The house was well appointed and beds were comfortable. The town of Hawi has several really good restaurants and some of the best ice cream on the Island. There's a farmer's market and good grocery store, and fun artisan shops to browse through. Great beaches are a short drive away and they have boogie boards, towels, chairs and umbrella ready for you. If you are looking for a great place to get away from it all, this is it. We all wanted to move in and were really sad to leave. Thanks for an amazing stay!"

  • Very Comfy

    "We were very happy with our stay at Linda & Marty's vacation rental. The rental tiki-hut was very cozy, with a comfortable king bed and a full kitchen. It was close to town, yet far enough away that gives one a private, secluded feel. Gorgeous views of the ocean and Maui. Nicely landscaped. Close to a great hiking trail that takes you to a sacred ceremonial sacrificial site and King Kamehameha's birthplace. We will definately stay again when spending time in north Hawaii."

  • Beautiful vacation rental and area!

    "My husband and I had a wonderful vacation while staying in this vacation rental! The unit was beautifully decorated and newly remodeled. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to call home for the 7 days we were able to stay there. John and Deborah were the perfect hosts. Always available if we needed anything or had any questions of where to go and what to see. We enjoyed the dogs in the front yard. They were very friendly and loving. It was like being at home. The unit had all the necessities we needed to prepare our meals. John and Deborah had thought of everything. The bed was so very comfortable. It made sleeping very relaxing. They even had a well written binder for us to read of all their suggestions on how to see the most beautiful beaches and best places while we were there on the northern part of the island. I enjoyed the privacy of the Kohala Ranch area. It is a beautiful and peaceful place to vacation at. The only thing I might suggest to John and Deborah, for people that want to visit this amazing area and never have been here before, is give some good directions of how to find the Kohala Ranch and how to get into the Ranch. When we arrived it was a bit confusing because we had no idea that there were two entrances to get into the ranch. But after we finally figured it out the rest of the time was the most relaxing and amazing time. Thank you for sharing your home and the time you spent sharing with us, John and Deborah! We would love to come back if we ever get back to the big island!"

  • 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 ;-)"
