  • Lovely Hawi

    "My husband and I along with our 2 kids (ages 11 & 12) had a wonderful stay at Jim and Leah's place. They are great hosts and give you recommendations on where to go, beaches, etc... (just ask). Their ohana is all that you need. It comfortable, neat, clean and has WiFi. The outdoor shower is a bonus!!! Love this feature so much. The space was perfect for our family of four and had a great kitchen for cooking meals in. Hawi has some of the best sushi I have had at Sushi Rock and you must, must, must check out the food at Sol Kitchen at the Hawi Farmer's Market, so ono!!! This a good home base and is but is easily accessible to other areas such as Waimea and Kona. We cannot wait to return."

  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • 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!"
