Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Jean is really friendly, fun and down to earth. Her space is beautiful and has a great view of Mauna Kea on a clear day! Convenient location, only 15 minutes to the North Kohala beaches and about 25 minutes to Hawi, depending on how much you want to stop and take in the views. We slept 3 in the space which works if you're all comfortable with each other. Would definitely go back again!

  • The Green Flash Ohana was a delightful place to land for a few days while we explored Waimea, the north Kona beaches, and the Kohala peninsula. Location is perfect for access to these areas. Weather in Waimea is very pleasant, with evening temps cooler than Kona, and clear fresh mountain air. Accommodations were cute, comfortable and clean with a well stocked kitchenette that you could actually cook in, fresh Kona coffee beans in the fridge, and a selection of tea! The Ohana is very nicely decorated, plenty spacious for two, and feels very private. Garden and grounds are beautiful and rustic. Hunt around and you might find a Chameleon or two in the bushes! Jean is a wonderful host, and made us feel like family. Stay here!

  • We fully enjoyed our stay with Jean. She is a great host with many good ideas and guidelines about some of the attractions on the big Island. It is a nice home style stay with a great country feel. Centrally located on the north of the island, You can go from sea to sky within a short drive. We would recommend it to others.

  • Jeanie's place was our favorite of all the places we stayed during our 18 day visit so we ended up going back staying there the last few nights after traveling the whole island. Super comfy bed and very cute Ohana that's equipped and furnished with everything you'd need. Absolutely recommend- Jeanie is a great host!
