  • This place was pretty much as advertised. Elwood and Momi were nice hosts, though I wasn't there much to interact with them. The roosters did start early, so ear plugs are recommended. The walls had no insulation and as a result, you could hear everyone else in the house whenever a door was opened. But overall, I felt I got what I paid for - budget accommodations on an expensive island. You did feel like you were out in the country - which may be exactly what some people are looking for.

  • We had no contact with the hosts except for a rushed 5mins when we first arrived. Accommodation nice and comfortable. Neighbours were a bit noisy though. Is misleading selling themselves as a bnb considering they don't provide breakfast. Otherwise sufficient and conveniently close to waimea canyon

  • The Menehune B&B is not as nice as it may seem on the Air B&B description. Yes, there are fruit trees on the property, and yes it is in beautiful Waimea. However, there are many, many roosters that crow throughout the night (and thus the sleep is definitely not uninterrupted) and the home is not an "architectural beauty" as described. The bathroom is shared.

    However, if you are a college student or looking for a very rustic place to stay, these accommodations are just fine.

    Response from Elwood & Momi:

    We are sorry that the accommodations were not to your liking. If there was anything we could have done to make your stay better we would gladly accommodate you and your husband. Our family home is very special to us and was sent from New Zealand and built by native Maori brothers of our father, a substantial Kapuna in our community. It is a very unique and beautiful place to spend time with loved ones. Yes, it is a country home we have chickens, horses, and surfers alike.6 hours spent in our home is not sufficient time to appreciate what we have to offer which down home, pure Aloha. Sorry you had a bad time.
