Recent Hawi reviews

  • Fabulous house and location... our girls loved it!

    "The location of this house - in laid back Puako - is perfect. Right next to a marine preserve, we spent many hours looking through the tide pools for turtles, fish, sea urchins, hermit crabs, and watching whales go by in the distance. And the feel of the house - an old style Hawaiian house - is a nice change from the typical island condo. The house had everything you could need, including beach towels, chairs, sand toys, masks, snorkels, etc. It is also conveniently close to lots of places to eat if you don't feel like cooking in the well stocked kitchen. The staff at 2Papayas were wonderful and left lots of information on the local area - the farmer's market in Waimea was one of our favorites. And if you couldn't find something in the general store down the road, you probably don't need it. We would love to come back!"

  • True paradise...

    "Of all the rentals we have visited over the years this was our absolute favorite. Every detail of this hand crafted home is artful and cozy-we especially loved sipping tea in front of the fire and the view of Kohala coast. Had a lovely talk with Chris and Carol, the most charming couple who built the lodge. Locally we enjoyed Sushi Rock in Hawi, the hike through Pololu Valley and getting massages in Kawaihae....Hope to be back soon!"

  • awsom experience

    "Our stay at a whale crossing was an incredible experience. From your lanai you can see plenty of whales spouting and a few jumping even without binocs. In the morrning we were treated to an array of song birds. The dogs are very loving and fun to play with. Linda and Marty are wonderful host. If we ever we are fortunate to visit the big island again we will definitely stay here. Suzy and Trampus Travis. 01/20/2017"

  • 4th Visit

    "As this was our 4th visit, no point rehashing previous reviews under "Tom" from Santa Fe. Judy and I spent 2 weeks at Mel's place again this year and have nothing but 10+ to give it (and Mel). The only "drawback" is that if you are coming to the Big Island to "see the sites," driving times are long. Otherwise, the suite is very nice, the host is great, the setting is very tranquil, Hawi Town is very pleasant, and we are already planning to return in 2018. As far as ancillary things go, Pesto, the restaurant in the port down the coast road 15 - 20 minutes, was disappointing this year. Bamboo, in Hawi Town, was again very satisfactory to excellent. Ultimate Burger, a long way away to go for a burger, admittedly (in Kona), was excellent. The beach at Mauna Kea Resort (25 minutes down the coast road) is the best there is but imposes parking space limitations on public "riff-raff". We got in 3 days out of 5 attempts. However, the beach at Waikoloa (35 minutes) is very good and has unlimited parking. Too, Spencer Park, about 20 minutes down the coast road, is protected from a surf POV, quiet and pleasant."
