Ka Hale o Noelani is a sweet one bedroom unit located just 4 houses away from the Waipio Valley lookout. A spacious nicely decorated bedroom with comfortable queen size bed leads out onto the large lanai. A nice living and dining room has its own entrance and also had full access to the lanai with grill. A kitchenette with microwave, small fridge, toaster oven, and coffee maker is available to guests. A full bathroom completes the unit.
Not very many rentals are available right at the rim of this majestic valley, one of the most visited sites in Hawaii.
Free Wi-Fi and television can be enjoyed by guests.
Ka Hale o Noelani is located in the quaint village of Kukuihaele, once a thriving plantation town. It's a place at the end of the road where time has stood still. Kukuihaele is 9 miles from the historic town of Honokaa where there are restaurants and shops as well as churches and even a campus of the University of Hawaii at Hilo, home of the Heritage Center. Public transport runs from Kona and Hilo to Honokaa.
What makes Ka Hale o Noelani unique is that it is literally just 4 houses from the lookout of Waipio Valley, a perfect starting place for hiking into Waipio and Waimanu.

Great location if you're looking to explore the Wipio Valley! We ended up walking down into the valley on two of the three days we were there to check out the waterfalls and the black sand beach. As other posters have mentioned, please note that there is not a full kitchen available (we made it work with what was provided), and the clean up sink is outdoors.
We missed our flight and lost a day, but Jolene graciously allowed us extra time to explore the area.,the Wai'pio Valley is stunning from above and down within.
The apartment is similarly comfortable,with a somewhat limited kitchen but a superb Wolf grill on the lanai. We had a great stay and would come again assuming that we would not miss our flight a second time. to the Big Island. Steve, thanks for you help.
Really, on ecan't hope for a better location above the valley.
The location is great visiting the valley and the bedroom and living room were quite comfortable. We missed not having a kitchen more than we thought we would as the nearest restaurants are 20 mins or so away.
Lovely location, and the unit itself is very comfortable. Definitely recommend hiking down to the valley itself as it's quite lovely. Jolene and Earl were great hosts, though I didn't see much of them as our schedules didn't really overlap. I really enjoyed having breakfast on the lanai and having Waima (their dog) drop by every morning.
The kitchenette was a little awkward, as it is a walk-in closet/pantry with a variety of kitchen appliances. It met my needs, but may not work for you if you expect to do any significant meal preparation.
Had a great time at Ka Hale o Noelani. I am truely grateful for the chance experience East Hawaii. Waipio valley is for sure one of the most beautiful and impressive places I have ever seen. Steve and his family have been great hosts. Only wish I would have had more time! I will try to be at the conference next year, and then I will definitely add a long vacation.Highly recommend Steve, Ka Hale o Noelani and East Hawaii!
This is an absolutely fabulous place to stay. just steps away from the Waipio Valley, one of the most beautiful places in the world. If you visit the Waipio you will want to give yourself plenty of time to explore; visiting the black sand beach, exploring the Z Trail and hiking back to the twin water falls. Our two night stay allowed us to do all of that. Our hosts greeted us on arrival to answer questions and get us settled, and then left us to ourselves. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay.
Very Nice Stay.
Easy access to Y.P.O valley. Very Pleasant Host for the house. Many conveniences come with house. Perfect stay for the area
Unfortunately, we mixed up the date of our departure flight and had to leave one night early, but from our one night there, Jolene and Steve were very friendly and helpful. The location is extremely close to the Waipio Overlook and has great views.
The place is very nice and we felt comfortable as soon as we arrived.. It's 200m away from the Waipio Valley Lookout - so perfect if you want to go down there.
Nevertheless, the next shops/restaurants are in Honokaa - 9Miles away and actually there is one restaurant open for dinner only. So there is no choice, but at least this one has very good food on offer.
Steve responded quickly with the arrangements. It is a very nice space nicely decorated with a private entrance, large living room and large bedroom. It doesn't have a full kitchen, but there are many appliances and a microwave. The only clean up sink area is either in the bathroom or outside on the patio. Jolene and Earl were very nice and helpful, but we didn't spend any time with them as we were rarely there at the same time. Literally only steps away from Waipio Valley and a nice jumping off spot for the northern part of the Big Island.
