  • Magnificent Property, Amenities, & Service! Part 3

    "Part 3 of Review: Because we loved this home, the amenities, and the tranquil location so much, we only took a few trips "off-site". We visited Hawi and returned to our favorite sushi restaurant, Sushi Rock--definitely worth the drive. We also took a snorkeling/whale watching trip, spent an afternoon at Mauna Kea Beach, walked the ocean trail to the Fairmont, shopped at Mauna Lani, took in the luau at Maua Kea Resort, and had dinner at The Blue Dragon. But we spent the majority of our time simply relaxing and reconnecting at Hale Nana Kohola. I loved sitting up in the 3rd story "Whale Watch" with it's 360 degree view, or on the lanai simply taking in the stunning and peaceful view! On our final day we saw tremendous whale action just off-shore. A group of whales hung around for quite a while, breaching, slapping, and tail-flapping! It was breath-taking! In summary, this home is amazing, exquisite, and was such a treat for our whole family--kids, parents, and grandparents included. The setting is idyllic and tranquil and offers so much to do, whether relaxing on the lanai, by the pool, swimming in the pool or bay, snorkeling, kayaking, or paddle boarding, exploring the tide pools, or walking the quaint community of Puako. It is the perfect layout for a large family or several couples. It is luxuriously appointed and beautifully decorated, and is perfectly situated and designed to take advantage of the tranquil Hawaiian breezes, and stunning ocean view! Ron and Jane, your home was the perfect spot for our multi-generational group! You have a gorgeous house, property, and setting, with wonderful spaces for being together or having privacy. It was hard to pry ourselves away. Everyone (kids, parents, grandparents) agreed it was a special place and the best vacation ever! We feel truly blessed that we were able to experience its beauty and wonder for even a short bit of time. Thank you so much for making that possible! I was so sad to leave, and actually cried the last morning, knowing it was the last day I would wake up to that incredible view. The week flew by much too quickly. I do hope we can manage to make a return visit some day! I am already trying to think of an excuse to come back!! (Maybe in a few years when my friends and I all turn 50?) Many Mahalos to you and your team! Sarah"

  • Excellent location. Great Value.

    "This house was great, large enough for all of us to have our own room and we did not feel like we were on top of each other. It was nicely furnished with newer appliances. The kids really like the outdoor shower and we enjoyed relaxing in the evening on the lanai. The beach was right across the street and had the perfect location to watch sunset. Additionally, down the road is an amazing place to go snorkeling, a large variety of fish, turtles and we were lucky enough to see a Mana Ray feeding. For those who like boogie boarding, there is a great beach less than a mile away."

  • Absolutely Perfect!

    "This place was absolutely perfect. Puako Beach Dr. is off the beaten path but still within walking distance to a little general store and right across from the beach. Hapuna Beach Park is only 3 miles away. Debbie and her staff were super responsive and a joy to work with. Highly recommend this property for families wanting to get away from it all and enjoy a quite relaxing stay on the Big Island."

  • Wonderful beach house!

    "We spent two weeks at the Honu House, celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The home was very clean, functional and fully stocked with all essentials! The path to the secluded beach was very short, and the beach itself was perfect - just what the doctor ordered! We would definately stay here again should we return to the Big Island! 2Papayas, the property management company, was wonderful and always responsive to questions - including those related to places to go and where to find the best local food, etc."
