Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

On the Big Island of Hawai'i. Centrally located amid tropical rain forest and green hills. A perfect place to explore Kohala, Pololu Valley as well as Waipio Valley and Hamakua. Views of Mauna Kea and Loa. Just 20 minutes to world-class beaches for snorkeling, swimming, shoreline hikes, etc. I'm an avid hiker and love ocean sports. Several restaurants located a couple of miles from my home. Favorites are the Brew Hause - local brewery with great Mexican food and entertainment.

Barbara was welcoming and communicative! She gave tips on places to eat. Her house has a great view and a great feeling of home with the rain around Waimea.

Barbara's place was clean, comfy, and we felt right at home for our night's stay. Barbara was welcoming even though we missed seeing her, giving us recommendations and tips, as well as some goodies for breakfast. I recommend staying at her place!

Hawai'i born and raised. Island life style is my culture - environment and ocean in concert for serenity. I am often "on-the-go" but welcome any guests to join my activities. Follow my (Hidden by Airbnb) ! - barbarahaight.
Interaction with guests
I am at work teaching most days and workout -paddling, hula, etc. afterward each day. I'm happy to share my knowledge of trails and ideas on what to do. I want to offer and share the serenity that my place gives to me as well as share our island life culture. You're welcomed…
