Aloha Nature Lovers! Located between Waipio Valley and Volcano National Park. Great hiking! Convenient and very private swimming holes to enjoy at your door. One can spend days chasing the many private waterfalls and exploring our property. Swimming the pristine waters that fill natural pool below our many private waterfalls. Enjoy each breath of pure sweet air. The little cabin has a great ocean view to watch the ships go sailing by & clouds parade down the coast. Nights are wonderful just sitting around the campfire, star gazing and telling stories. Tent camping for the kids is safe and easy. Located 20 miles north of Hilo. Just 1 mile from the highway. Very serene with only the sounds of the flowing waterfall, breezes through the trees, and tropical birds. My three horses (Nohea , Mahina and Shy Girl) will be eagerly awaiting to greet you. Aloha and Happy Trails! ***** I highly recommend ***** TURO CAR ,SUV and 4x4 rentals NOTE : Flooding may and does occur in North Hilo and on the Big Island. Please use extreme caution when near, swimming in or crossing any waterway. 4x4 or jeep is recommended for exploring back road areas on the island and to get to my place. 4x4 is required to access Waipio Valley, Green Sands Beach, and Mauna Kea. Book a cheap car then ask for a jeep up-grade when you arrive for good deals on jeeps from Budget. Aloha and be Safe! **** I highly recommend **** TURO Car , SUV and 4x4 rentals
Awesome ocean views. Papaaloa Country Store , Bar and Restaurant is just down the road . Great pizza and local style fresh food. Nightly live music almost 6 nights a week .
  • Keith and Ashley were super friendly and helpful. Keith told of us of the various “hidden” beauties to be explored. Waking up with the sound of the waterfalls and surrounded by flora and fauna was awesome. Peacocks, chickens , horses, geckos, oh my

  • Ashley was an incredibly knowledgeable and welcoming host. The place is most well described as a “jungow bungalow” and is an incredible stay for true nature lovers, but it was immaculate when we got there. We cooked breakfast in the morning (groceries from the country store) and explored some of the most beautiful jungle among the fruit trees and private waterfalls on the property. Absolutely amazing. There’s feral chickens, peacocks, and three horses on the property, which we found fun but they definitely will invade your space if you let them. There are also tree frogs that sing at night and the most gorgeous stargazing you’ll ever see.

    Holly2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view and relaxing space. My son and I felt very welcome and loved our time here

    Jennifer2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • A peaceful, beautiful place! Amazing!

    M. J.2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful time here even though it was a short stay. Keith and his daughter Ashley we’re both great hosts nice to talk to and helpful with everything. The view is amazing, the sound of the waterfall was soothing and it just felt great to be surrounded by nature and the horses and peacocks. We also explored the river with all its waterfalls. It’s so beautiful and just a short walk from the tent. Everything is a bit rustic, so you need to be comfortable with the outdoors. The outdoor shower was our favorite of the 6 we experienced on this trip. Surrounded by tropical plants, hot water and a great view. We look forward to coming back and staying for longer next time.

  • This is a gorgeous location, the accommodations are simple & clean & we had everything we needed. It is the perfect place to enjoy fresh air and the countryside in HI. The horses, waterfalls, peacocks and chickens were beautiful. We loved it!

    Catherine2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Keith and his daughter, Ashley were very kind during our stay. The tour of their grounds/property was lovely. We really enjoyed our stay here amongst the jungle, horses and waterfalls + some chickens. You definately need 4x4 to get to the property. We had a Hyundai Elantra and there was no way we could have gotten in without causing damage to the car. Thankfully, Ashley picked us up at the local restaurant due to a flash flood at the streams surrounding their property. We truely appreciated the hospitality and kindness. Ashley was calm and relaxed which put us at ease when it came to the flash flood and getting into the property.

    Justyna2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Off-grid and off the beaten path. If these are things you like, you will love this place. Stars galore, frogs and the crash of a waterfall singing you to sleep every night, you really get to be a part of nature in Hawai'i . We had zero issues with bugs and the chickens were friendly neighbors!

    King Bed, & 'Bali Style' outdoor shower- Apartment at street level in downtown Hilo Free parking. NOTE 14.96% TAX PAYABLE UPON ARRIVAL . CLEANING FEE OF $50 APPLIED FOR STAYS OF 7 DAYS OR MORE.
    Enter from our garden courtyard, and hear the sound of running water from the stone pond beside the entryway. There is the feeling of 'sanctuary' here. This apartment is something a little exotic for your visit to Hilo. Charming architectural features include stone and teracotta tile floors, a timber wall and wooden beams. The Lo'i features King sized bed. Lo'i' is the Hawaiian name for the wetland taro that grows in clear running water. This apartment was formerly a 'Poi factory' where the staple taro vegetable was processed and was a much loved icon for Hilo locals for several generations and since the 1980's it was converted to a clothing store where two leading Hawaiian designers got their start. ..Fast forward to 'now' and you will find this is a self contained apartment with a bedroom, a sun room, private bathroom and outdoor shower area. A ceiling fan helps to cool the bedroom and due to the helpful suggestions of our guests we have added extra privacy by hanging a curtain on the rear door. There's no kitchen here but there is a mini fridge and a tea & coffee station. This may work for travelers who don't plan on spending vacation time cooking. Once you step out onto the street, there are plenty of great restaurant choices for breakfast, lunch or dinner within one or two blocks of The Lohi. This apartment is part of a complex of several old homes which have been refurbished and restored and is called 'The Lotus Garden.' On the property is a two bedroom guest cottage called 'The Sugar Shack' and a three bedroom vacation home called 'The Lotus.' Both of these homes are listed with airbnb.com. Our guests continue to let us know that our central location makes their stay with us easy and convenient. You can enjoy the convenience of being in the same block as some great budget cafes and restaurants as well as grocery stores and the Farmer's Market. Most visitors do hire a car to see the many remote spots on the island. If you are looking for an alternative to the major rental companies, just ask us for a recommendation for someone renting cars.
    Hilo is a great town to walk about in and explore because of its small size. The heart of Downtown Hilo is only 3 blocks. In this area you will find wonderful restaurants and several great venues for live music. Keawe street is home to sushi and other restaurants, plus an open air bistro & bar plus several cafes, plus a Kombucha bar, a Kava bar and two great sushi restaurants. There's also a farmer's market on Bayfront and plenty of little stores to browse in. We love the slower pace of life here and the many artists, musicians and eccentrics who call this home.
  • The place is nice and clean. The environment is great for people to stay and feel comfortable. Feel very worth to choose the place! Definitely will come back again:)

    Xueyun2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is both adorably cute and perfectly located. The outdoor shower is a tropical dream come true.

    Linda2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A great little spot in Hilo. A nice little enclave and walking distance to many of Hilo’s attractions.

    Niall2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This beautifully furnish space made our time spent in Hilo one to remember. The place is very easy to find and centrally located right in Hilo town. A short walk will get you to a variety of restaurants, shops, the beach and a lovely farmers market. The shower was a major highlight. Located outdoors next to a calming fountain, the sound of running water and coquí frogs made for a Spa-like experience. I would highly recommend this space to anyone looking to delight in the charming character of Big Island.

    Emily2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, super close to the heart of Hilo. Farmers market. Natural food store. Park. Yoga.

  • Great little spot in the heart of Hilo!

    Kelly2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here on our first night in Hilo and it was a perfect homebase. Just a couple blocks from the farmer's market, and walking distance to lots of great restaurants. We didn't have any issues with heat or noise. Really comfortable bed. Would definitely stay there again!

    Jessica2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying here for a quiet evening away. Great location - Lived in Hilo for three years and hadn't even realized this little gem was here.

    Hilo is 'retro town' with old weathered buildings and a slower pace of life. We enjoy that town is only 3 blocks long and 3 blocks wide with plenty of grocery shopping and a Farmer's Market close by. In recent years we have seen more small restaurants open up all over town plus a few massage businesses and yoga studios. If you come from a big city you may be delighted to find that prices are lower for a meal, yoga or massage and the island grown produce that is also fresh! You will love being one block from Hilo Bay, the Farmer's Market and close to parks, gardens, cafes, restaurants and galleries. There is a movie theaters in the town of Hilo called 'The Palace' that screens foreign and 'independent' movies or has live music. Hilo offers diverse cuisines. Japanese, Thai, Mexican, French Crepes and Indian are among some of the choices you will find and most restaurants are affordably priced... Hilo also has its' very own Kava bar which often features live music performances in the evenings as well as the chance to try locally grown organic Kava. Travelers on a budget could do without a car here if it's a slow paced vacation they are looking for.. You can enjoy the convenience of being in the same block as some great budget cafes and restaurants as well as grocery stores and the Farmer's Market. Some of our guests do choose not to rent a car for a variety of reasons. When making this choice they usually narrow down the sites they want to see to one or two things and arrange for private or small group tours and spend the majority of their time in Hilo, walking, browsing or just relaxing.
  • Really nice room!!! In the middle of Hilo! Very convenient location. Easy street parking. Great available host! The house was really nice!

    Mathilde2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome location in the heart of hilo, super clean and quaint. Sharing the bathroom and kitchen was not an issue whatsoever. Jasper was great and easy to work with! Would definitely recommend this stay for friends and family!

    Emily2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Hosts are super friendly, Loved the location right downtown Hilo. Shared house with one other room, one room upstairs and one downstairs. Perfect separation to not disturb other guest and have your own space. The attic room was just perfect and beautiful. Fresh coffee in the morning. Would recommend to anyone

    Daniel2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The attic room is a beautiful space that was so welcome after a long day spent visiting the island. It was very clean and had everything we needed. We slept so well! Will definitely remember this place for future visits.

    Alexandra2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a clean, open concept, centrally located spot with a great vibe. The hosts are helpful and professional!

    Ashley2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful attic room, with coffee delivered to our front door every morning - what else can you ask for? The location was perfect to explore Hilo but also for day trips. My friend and I stayed for three nights and can only recommend staying with Megan.

    Vanessa2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • So many restaurants near by

    Anna2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • A nice oasis from the sun (or rain) in Hilo! We loved Megan's recommendations, coffee in the morning, and a good night's rest in a comfy bed with a beautifully designed space.

    THE POOLHOUSE!! Have your very own private resort just 6 miles from the beautiful Kohala Coast -- where all the islands's best beaches can be found (all just a short drive away). The Poolhouse comes with your very own salt water pool with waterfall & outdoor BBQ & King bed. Guests have access to complimentary & guest-minded Big Island Vacation Services. Owners live onsite on one of the 3 lots that comprise the Poolhouse grounds & can be of help when needed. Beach items are complimentary.
    THE POOLHOUSE!!! Have your very own private resort. Just 6 miles from the beautiful beaches of the Kohala Coast. A-Bay, Waialea Bay, and Hapuna Beach are all just a short drive from your "resort." The Poolhouse comes with a salt water pool with waterfall. The house itself comes complete with everything you need for a private, romantic get away. A fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, frig, microwave and dishwasher. A commercial gas grill is right outside if you feel like cooking and dining next to the pool. Also the Poolhouse has a California king size bed (fold out sofa bed, too), a living area with 55" flat screen (with a "zillion" music choices via Spectrum cable), and high speed WiFi with new routers/WiFi enhancers installed in 2019. Start your day with a early swim in the refreshing salt water (better for your skin) followed by breakfast (provided by guest) next to the pool. Then when you return from a day of adventure or relaxing at the beach (or a round of golf at nearby Robert Trent Jones II designed Waikoloa golf course--just two miles away), have a rest in the outdoor hammock while grilling your dinner on the gas grill as the waterfall gently splashes nearby and completes your perfect day. The Poolhouse was completely renovated in 2013 with a brand new kitchen and bathroom. New flooring installed in June 2019. Our Poolhouse, pool area and grounds are completely smoke-free and drug free. Thank you in advance for your compliance! AIR CONDITIONING, starting May 2019, A/C is now available at an additional $25/day. Still, most folks who sightsee and head to the beach during daytime hours, feel the fans are adequate. But not all. So because we want to make the poolhouse affordable and comfortable, we now offer A/C ala carte. We understand that every guest travels differently, and many will not want or need A/C since, as forementioned, they plan to be out touring most of the day (why pay for something you're not using?!). The hottest time of day at the poolhouse is from 2-6pm. The mornings and evenings are usually quite pleasant, especially with our gentle trade winds. If your plan on using A/C or you think you'd lean that way, please reach out to Bob and Leesa prior to your arrival. However, if you decide during your stay, you would like the comfort of A/C, they will be happy to assist in making sure that happens. Please note that electricity is not cheap in Hawaii, and to keep Poolhouse costs affordable for future guests, we ask that when the A/C is being used, it is when guests are in the Poolhouse. Please don't run A/C while you are not there. GOLF: Nestled in the foothills of Mauna Kea overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Waikoloa Village Golf Course is truly one of Hawaii's most beautiful courses. It was designed by Robert Trent Jones and is only a five minute drive from the Poolhouse. Beach Equipment: At the Poolhouse we have a lot of beach equipment available to you at no additional cost. Beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, and boogie boards, etc.. Restaurants: Five minutes away you will find a few local restaurants. Pueo's Italian, Lava Java (a great coffee shop), Los Tres Mex takeout and a local Thai takeout. 15-25 minutes away is LAVA LAVA BEACH CLUB (our favorite), Sensei, Macaroni Grill, Under the Bodhi Tree, Blue Dragon, and Seafood Bar, Monstera, and Tommy Bahamas. About 30 minutes away is a local brewery BIG ISLAND BREWHAUS, PAU PIZZERIA, RED WATER CAFE. Beaches: Best and closest beaches to the POOLHOUSE (15-20 minute drive) Anaehoomalu Bay, Mauna Kea Beach, Hapuna Beach, Beach 69! Best beaches on the whole island! We have a fabulous book that we leave with suggestions on where to go, what to see, and where to eat and we are more than happy to give you more suggestions if you desire. Bob & Leesa (and Kelsey) live on the property, too, in a home on one of the three lots that make up the Poolhouse grounds and are available for emergencies or simply answering questions.
    The neighborhood is a residential area 15 minutes away from some of the most spectacular beaches on the Big Island. We are about a 30 minute drive from the Kona International Airport.
  • Wonderful stay! Feels like an oasis away from the world, yet highly convenient to anything you might need. I recommend without hesitation.

    Frankie2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • private, quiet and lovely to hear the birds in the morning and walk the neighborhood with the beautiful flowers abounding everywhere

    Wayne2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in the Poolhouse. This is the perfect location to be close to beaches, restaurants, and shopping, but at the same time have your own quiet and private oasis. We loved having coffee under the gazebo on the pool deck in the morning, watching the sunrise and listening to the birds, surrounded by flowers. The house had all the needed amenities, with a comfortable bed and a peaceful, clean and inviting environment. Bob and Leesa are wonderful hosts, very responsive. Thank you for a great stay!

    Victoria2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

  • This is really a nice place to stay when you are in Hilo. It’s in the centre near some restaurants and the supermarket. We like the vibe. Everybody was so friendly and relaxed. Our room and the bed were small, but we know that before. The shared living and kitchen are spacious and we love the balcony. A green place in the middle of Hilo.

    Jolanda2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for a good bargain! It’s really clean and Meg and Jasper were really friendly and gave great recommendations about things to see during our stay! Really great location in downtown Hilo too!

    Tiffany2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and clean place. Megan and her husband Jasper are very friendly and lovely. Very convenient location in Hilo. Great for early morning simple run down by the bay. Just beware, coqui frogs chime at night all over Hilo, but minimal of them sounded around the home.

    Rebecca2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Megan was very friendly and offered great recommendation for breakfast. The place was Immaculate and offered French press coffee on the lanai in the morning before we checked out. It was a great location with accessibility to the market and local restaurants. Would stay here again!! Thank you Megan and Jasper.

    Courtney2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning gardens tucked away in the heart of the city. Beautiful cloistered courtyard. Hosts fun to talk to and helpful with local tips. Easy place to stay for our first night in Hilo.

    Chris2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Megan was super accommodating. She gave us tips on where to go and provided us with some cooking oil and spices when we wanted to cook at home. It is a super tidy spot with a comfy kitchen and living room. It is very clean. The shared living space makes it a easy to connect with other travelers. I love the shower amenities!

    Tranquil, private, setting amid stately Ohia trees with partial ocean views. The custom studio is 500sf with a limited height loft and large gorgeous bathroom and deck. Off grid with installed hi speed WiFi & cell booster.
    The Studio is newly remodeled with a handsome central Ohia post and Silver Oak trim throughout. All the trim wood came from the property. The main sleeping space is a 10' X 10' loft space with sloping limited height ceiling. Downstair we have two couches, one opens into a comfortable queen size bed as need. There is a spacious, custom tiled bathroom and a covered deck to enjoy a sunny breakfast outdoors with views of the pasture, Ohia trees and the distant ocean. For entertainment we have a medium size TV and a good supply of DVD's. The sound system is bluetooth accessible for a wireless connection to the music on your phone, lap top or pad. A cell phone booster in the Studio allows connection to the outside world, as needed.
    As quoted from the recently published: "My Year in A Yurt: It was this studio we stayed in. We absolutely loved the place, the lush grass-coverd rolling hills, the stately Ohia trees dotting the land, the ocean in the distance. It was so peaceful, so quiet, so healing." Yes, you are far from the urban madding crowd in a peaceful, quiet and rural location. We are surrounded by green; green grass, green trees, and green plants everywhere with wild turkeys and the occasional wild pig running madly across the pasture. Nights are clear and stars are blinding. Rain is possible but more likely are 15 knot trade winds which keep the air clear and fresh at a cool 1800' elevation. Our place is an ideal location from which to explore all parts of the Big Island. However, it is a minimum 20 minute drive to the nearest town of any size, (Honokaa town) and 45 minutes to the best gold coast white sand beaches.
  • Super peaceful spot, excellent for a retreat away from the hubbub. Plan on reading, watching movies, and sleeping well.

    Holly2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Everything for a really impressive epxerience in the nature. The house is so nice and very well equiped. Totally modern furniture and appliances make the stay very pleasant. Baki is a very nice host and you won‘t miss anything.

    Björn2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Baki & Bailey's place is remote, well equipped, & absolutely peaceful. Stars at night through the window over the bed. Breakfast each morning with smoothies we made in the provided individual Ninja blender (Baki also provided us Gluten Free Bread since my boyfriend has Celiac's ❤️). BBQ at night using the BBQ on the deck. We also loved using the provided snorkeling gear. WiFi is on & off (it is switched back on without any trouble) but honestly if you're hooked on WiFi you're not getting the point. Book this place.

    M2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • What a great getaway. Highly recommended! Cozy bed, a full functional kitchen, and a thoughtful host. A wonderful visit to this side of the island. We hope to return.

    Bobbi Jo2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The moment you turn up the road to Baki's cottage you enter a magical forest. Two miles up the road and you are in heaven! Clean, comfortable, and cozy, with everything you need to make coffee and meals (including yummy items left by Baki!). The setting is peaceful and the night sky is gorgeous. Beach chairs, towels, snorkeling gear, and a cooler are all on hand should you need them for a day at a glorious nearby beach. Baki met us during check-in and she was warm, hospitable, and very easy to communicate with. Highly recommended!

    Paauilo, HI, United States

    Private Bedroom on the Main strip of Historic Honokaa town! Just 1 mins walk to town with shops & restaurants! 10 mins to Waipio Valley with black sand beaches & Waterfalls, the 2nd most visited spot on island! This 3 bedroom Hawaiian Style Plantation house is newly renovated. There's a historic koi pond in the courtyard and outside hallway that leads to 2 shared bathrooms & Full Kitchen! Free wifi and smart TV! We are north central so it's great for going either side to Hilo or Kona & Waipio!
    We are north so we do not get any VOG and is safe from the volcanic activity. We have many people evacuating to this area it has the best air quality all year round. The Volcano room is our smallest room and cheapest, what's nice is it has windows all around, it's good if you wanted to save money. I recommend this room is best for one person as it's the smallest room in my complex. For only $5 more you can get a bigger room for two. But some guest want to save money so they don't mind but I wanted you to know there's other rooms that are larger. This is the only room without a ceiling fan, however we have a portable small fan, depends when you stay if it's during the winter months you won't need a fan cause it's pretty cool at night. If you want bigger space the Master bedroom is large or Hamakua room is med size for just $5 more our Mauna Kea room has it's own entrance and Waipio Studio is largest with it's own kitchenette. We have had many guests stay in this room and didn't mind because they are out most of the day and would prefer to save the money.
    It's in the Historic town of Honokaa, you get to enjoy walking to town, to farmers markets, shops, restaurants, historic theatre for only $6, free public pools, skate park, libary next door. My Shave ice and boba tea shop in front!
  • It's a great, albeit sparsely populated location. However, more populated hubs like Waimea are 15 minutes away and it's a beautiful part of Hawaii. The value is great.

    Dean2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • You are centrally located in downtown Honokaa, right across from shops, restaurants, and the Hamakua Police Station. It is very safe. The beds, sheets, pillows, and towels are all first rate. It is very clean. There is a nice koi pond and a sleepy house cat. The owner Mai, her sister Mar, and Uncle Jimmy are all very helpful. Mai has several housing options here. Small room with one bed; larger room with two beds; large studio with kitchenette and frig; larger unit set apart from the others with its own private bath and kitchenette; etc. The private unit is truly beautiful, but it is more expensive than the other rooms. Most rooms share a couple of clean bathrooms and have their own showers. Mai's team does a great job keeping the place clean and bug free. It is less expensive here than many places on the Kona side. Honokaa, the Hamakua Coast, and Waipio Valley are all beautiful. You are 20 minutes from Waimea, and an hour or so from Kona and Hilo. I look forward to a return visit.

    Derek2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent value, right off the main strip of town. Very clean! We used Mai's place as a launching pad for visits to both Waipio Valley and Pololu Valley hikes. Uncle Jimmy was a great point-person for questions and so kind. The lanai is pretty tight on space (as advertised), but there are plenty of common areas for lounging. Kitchen is stocked with plenty of pots/pans/cutlery, and some cooking essentials (salt/oil/etc). Note that there are only 2 shared bathrooms for several rooms, so when it's a full house, there can be a fair wait time for the bathroom...reminiscent of college dorm days :P Would recommend!

    Patricia2019-12-30T00:00:00Z

    Ulrich2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Mai’s is a sweet place. It’s right in town and close to everything. The room and shared spaces were clean and cozy. Highlights were listening to the coquis at night and fresh orange juice in the morning.

    Meta2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Nice old and clean house with little garden, where you can look to the stars. The volcano room was -liked described- little, but cosy and with oceanview. Honokaa ist a little lively „westerntown“. We would come again.

    Andrea2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • We were really well settled in this accommodation. It was really very clean and comfortable. On top of that, Mai sent us lots of useful information about the neighborhood and the activities to do :)

    Fully furnished with Cal King bed. Attached private Ohana on the lush hamakua coast of the big island. Located in Pa’auhau “the land of sunshine” on the southern end of Honokaa. Please note My husband builds furniture out of the garage and there is potential for noise between the hours of 9-5 on some days.
    The Ohana is fully furnished. 1 California king size bed, desk with chair, and breakfast table with 2 chairs, dresser, night stand , T.V with Netflix/Hulu /Amazon Firestick capability. House is only 3 years old so space is nice and clean.
    Close to beautiful Waipio Valley. Kalopa Park with hiking trails within 10 min.
  • A little warm but peaceful even if the owners live upstairs. They allow you to have privacy which is a plus. Feels very homey and comfortable. I would def recommend

    Jolyn2020-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy little place to stay. I would recommend it if you are just interested in a bed. It’s on the first floor but there isn’t much ventilation to the room. The view is great from the front yard and the host was super nice and accommodating.

    Denys2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice room. The bed is super confortable!! Bridget and Billy are really helpful if you need tips to know what to do around the island! And the place is really clean and easy check-in! Would recommend.

    Julie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very comfortable and cozy. Chickens in the morning, great lighting and gentle morning breeze. Can’t beat it for the price. Also, the location is great as a jumping off point for visiting the rest of the big island along the hamakua coast. 15 min drive to Waipio, 3 min drive to honokaa, 25 min drive to Waimea and located near kapaloa park. Plus the Netflix was a nice touch when we were too tired to do anything and just wanted to lay in bed.

    Chris2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very cute place to stay - we found it to be clean, quiet, and comfortable with an ocean view out the front door. There is a nice kitchenette if you like to cook. Can definitely recommend this room!

    Zach2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Super close to Waipio Valley, super country in a good way. would stay there again if we are on that side of the island!

    Jordi2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place. Interaction with host was minimal, but always friendly.

    Nathan2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

    Here is a great opportunity to see, hike and enjoy the Waipio Valley. The rustic one bedroom one bath Ohana attached the the Wapio Valley Art Gallery gives you the opportunity to check out their wonderful souvenirs, book all the activities.
    This rental gives you the opportunity to save some money but be in a comfortable safe one bedroom one bath rental and spend some of your hard earned bucks on all the various tours at a discount for staying in this rental.
    The quaint Village was once a Sugar Care area where families lived, loved and harvested the cane. Some of those family still live there today.
  • Peace & tranquility

    Talmadge2020-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Rustic is accurate, but this place is super convenient, tidy, clean & even has WiFi & Roku. Which, you really should only need if it’s a deluge. I would recommend this place, especially if you are looking to hike the Waimanu trail and need a place to stay before and/or after 👌🏻.

    Mary2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This little bungalow had a 70s vintage vibe, we loved it! Nice to have a kitchen, bathroom and shower all in one! We went on the Waipio valley tour provided by the gallery, it far exceeded our expectations🙌👌👏. The tour takes you into this magical valley only 4wd vehicles can roam, the tour also takes you past where hikers are allowed to explore. Our guide kalenai was super phenomenal, highly recommend! We loved this little town and the farmers markets are near in town and also in Waimea. Comfy bed, hot water, much kindness from the locals 👏🙌🌈🏝

    Kari2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great value, cosy and sweet. Taking a quiet walk at sunrise to the Waipio Valley Lookout was lovely. We look forward to returning.

    Sequoia2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We were cycling the island and wanted a place to regroup. We didn’t need external amenities - just a quiet place to hang out. We also wanted to explore Waipio Valley without being rushed. Bill’s place more that met our requirements. The ladies at the art gallery were so sweet and the availability of a morning coffee was a welcome treat. Bill was always attentive and most welcoming. You can’t go wrong with this place!

    George2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gem of a place. Pictures don’t do it justice. It’s a good size private and comfortable...a stones throw from the beautiful waipio valley and just behind an art store that sells finely crafted local art and jewelry. The town of Honoka’a is close for night outings. Great place to stay!!!

    Dawn2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, clean, with everything we needed for our stay. Bill was an excellent host.

    Russell2019-12-31T00:00:00Z

  • The location of Cynthia's property is amazing. It's just a short walk to Waipio Valley Lookout and the road/trail to the bottom for those interested. The apartment is very nice. I especially enjoyed the sounds of nature outside at night. It is just a 15min drive from Honokaa, and it was well worth the stay. If you'd like a relaxing place to stay that is close to some great outdoor activities, this apartment is a great choice!

    Matthew2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful experience. It took me a while to write this review, and I still know I can’t do it justice. Cynthia’s place is the perfect balance of everything necessary to create value. Do not wait to book her place. We stayed at four different locations. This is the one that was better than expected. The view was great, as pictured. It’s the inside of the house and guesthouse, and Cynthia’s incredible hospitality that surprised me. The furniture and art pieces in the main house are unique- I enjoyed seeing them. The bed was the most comfortable one we stayed in. The guesthouse we stayed in was adequately private since it had a separate entrance. Everything was clean. Perhaps best of all, Cynthia herself. I am quite introverted, as is my partner, but we both absolutely loved our time with her. We didn’t plan to interact much, but interacting with her may have been one of the highlights of our trip.

    Kat2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at the Waipio Rim House! The host cooks breakfast in the morning, and it's delicious! 2 minute walk from Waipio Valley and the view is better than advertised.

    Seth2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Super room with a nice king size bed sooo confortable. The view of the back yard was amazing. We can see the Waipio valley!! We saw whales in the morning. It was our last night so we had to leave early but I bet the breakfast would've been great.

    Marie-Hélène2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

  • We enjoyed our stay! Complements to Sidra and Chris for the superb hospitality and great vibes. The location and atmosphere were perfect! It’s close to lots of attractions and centrally located for popping over to the west side of the island. Throughout the property, there are some nice chill out spots—like the blue yoga deck and the whale watching deck. Each day, we were overlooking the ocean and admiring the stars at night. The accommodations were comfortable and the design was well thought out. We would definitely recommend it to our friends so that they can experience it as well. We’ll be back!

    Rick And Raquel2020-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • A nice place for 1 night stay. You can see ocean from your bed. It's nice to walk around the farm.

    Jy2020-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing experience! Great communication with host, easy check-in, clean place, INCREDIBLE VIEWS! Make sure to get up early to walk the farm to see all the animals out and about, munchin on grass. :) They seemed to be more active in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Nice apartment with private entrance as part of a family home. Beautiful yard/orchard with amazing views of the ocean. Very convenient for someone exploring Waipio Valley. About 1 mile (maybe less) from the lookout. We saw an amazing sunset from the back patio while enjoying fresh picked tangerines from the trees in the yard. Highly recommend!

  • Excellent value for this location. You'll need to back out of the carport/driveway to leave, so maybe challenging if you have a large vehicle.

    Kimberly2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for relaxing and dining in Waimea.

    Jerome2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot express enough how much gratitude I have for these airbnb owners. I had the most relaxing and wonderful stay in there home. Highly recommend this spot for future guests. Waimea is such a beautiful area and this home is an ideal spot to get to know the area!

    Leeana2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable apartment, basic kitchenette, excellent bed, small but adequate bathroom, attentive and easy to communicate with host. The location Is close to shopping, restaurants, and outstanding Farmers’ Markets in town. Great value, highly recommend.

    Victor2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay, close to shops and food...a beach maybe 30 minutes away and a view of Mouna Kea observatory from the back yard and to get there is about an hour drive

    Nicholas2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great option for a lower-budget trip to Hawaii. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, with a basic but adequate kitchenette. Daniel was an attentive host. The location in a subdivision is not inspiring, and there's no outdoor space to eat or hang out -- but it's a short walk.into town, and Hapuna beach is an easy 20 minute drive away. Overall a great value and I would highly recommend.

    Julia2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nice space for a small number of people. The kitchen was well enough appointed for my needs. Convenient to the center of Waimea. And the bed was super comfortable! Thanks for having me!

    Chris2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Waimea is great town to "set up camp" in: it has some remarkable restaurants, two grocery stores, neat coffee shops, and a handful of antique shops & galleries to explore. Great beaches 20+ minutes away, and its central location lends itself to explore west (1 hour to Kona), north (½ hour to Hawi), and east (1½ hours to Hilo) parts of the island quite easily.

    Dave2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • She was such a nice lady. Breakfast was amazing! We definitely want to come back anytime!

    Fuko2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of calmest and relaxing B&B’s I’ve had the pleasure to visit. Well above general Airbnb’s. Jacqueline is wonderful hostess and cook. My only disappointment was we could not spend several more days.

    Beth2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying at Jacqueline’s B&B. A thoughtful host, she helped us immensely with her knowledge about beaches, restaurants, and beautiful places. We enjoyed her delicious homemade breakfast. Located in Honokaa, a historic town close to the spectacular Waipio Valley.

    Eric2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful historic house and garden- Amazing breakfast!

    Alex2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

This is an ideal place for warm hearted and friendly adventurous people with the will to explore who enjoy nature and animals. Location location location, we are between Hilo and Kona so no need to relocate. Hilo and Kona are a beautiful short drive away with much to see on the way.

There are no street lights in the area, so it is very dark at night. It may be a challenge to find us at night for the first time.
  • Bebo and Karen's place was amazing. The place is very cozy with beautiful surroundings. Everything was very clean and the bed was quite comfortable. Although you have to exit the room to use the bathroom and shower, they are very secure and private and it was a very unique experience. Bebo and Karen are excellent hosts and were friendly with excellent tips for seeing local sites. Also loved their dogs Posse and Java. It is a little off of the beaten path, but that is what makes it so great!!

    Brenda2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Place was fantastic! Very relaxing, great place to just chill and do whatever. Location was awesome, close to the main strip of Honokaa and a good base for Waipio. The hosts were friendly and responsive and helped make our time there amazing.

    Marcella2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is our second stay at Bebos Basecamp and will be back again. Highlights include the most genuinely kind hosts, clean home, comfy bed, shower under the stars, fresh avocados, lemons, mandirns and oranges. They have the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. Bebo has lots of wonderful tips for traveling the area. An absolute wonder and joy we most definitely will return.

    Lyndze2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Bebo and Karen are very welcoming, as are their 2 dogs. The place is really nice and very well equipped. We are calm ... everything is really great! We had a great time there.

    Virginie2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • If you book Bebo and Karen’s place be sure you book enough time to REALLY enjoy it. Our two nights were not enough. I could have spent an entire day lounging in the swings. We had a campfire and marveled at the stars. And do not underestimate how delightful it is to have a steaming hot shower under the stars. This place is so cozy and quiet. I loved the sounds of the forest and the beautiful surroundings. Bring a few extra layers as it’s cool in the evening (we were never cold in the cabin thanks to the cozy blankets!) and enjoy some time outside. There’s a lot more to Hawaii than the beaches and this is the perfect place to explore from.

    Dave & Carleen2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible sweet spot. Easily worth double the price. I wanted to stay for a month!

    Karen2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The property is very well located to explore a large radius of the beautiful island. For this reason and since it rained and stormed several times during our stay, we rarely used the inviting garden with the hammocks and the fireplace. The little house is very pretty and cozy. The toilet thought out and who doesn't dream of an outdoor shower? We can highly recommend the accommodation, especially if you like to be in the middle of nature! Thanks for the warm welcome. Roswitha & Manuel

    Roswi2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great hosts! Nice dogs. Shower is hot. Bed is comfy. Had a couple of issues with the toilet, but Bebo fixed it right away. Nice to star gaze beside the fire pit. Delicious avocados grow on their property. We didnt use the outdoor kitchen. Thanks!

  • Great location for starting a hike to Waipio. Alley and on over to Waimanu Valley. I stayed here so that I could get an early morning jump start on the hike the next day. The art gallery in front offers overnight parking if you do backpack to Waimanu Valley. Parking was included for free on my night of the Airbnb and then $20 per night while I was camping.

    This lovely guesthouse is in a serene neighborhood, 7 minutes from the center of town with easy access to shopping and groceries (including a Saturday farmer's market). Our self-contained retreat offers secure parking, new furnishings, laundry, full kitchen with utensils, cooking accessories, WiFi, Roku TV, and its own private lanai (porch). The house has an open floorplan for kitchen/living room, while the bedroom is it’s own secluded room. Melaleuca and ginger hedges make it very private.
    We have two small dogs who like to roam the property and keep it safe. They bark, but they are not aggressive.
    Clouds and mist move over and through our neighborhood, and the weather tends to alternate between periods of mist and drizzle to gentle sunshine. Our cooler mountain climate will give you the perfect respite from a day spent in the ever-sunny heat of the Kohala Coast. The center of Waimea has stunning views in all directions, being nestled among some of the most ancient mountains on Big Island, including Mauna Kea. With a mixture of Old Hawaii and Paniolo culture, our community is truly a special little corner of the world. As an important ranch town and center for astronomical research, Waimea has excellent services, facilities and conveniences for a town of its size. Stay with us, and you’ll find out why our town is Big Island’s “best-kept secret”! Waimea is uniquely and conveniently located less than an hour away from some of the most picturesque and historic sites the Island has to offer. Below is a list of nearby attractions and their travel times, according to Google Maps: Waipio Valley - 27m Spencer Beach - 29m Hapuna Beach - 32m Waialea (69) - 33m Lapakahi State Historical Park - 40m Akaka Falls - 57m Pololu Valley - 58m Kailua-Kona - 1hr3m King Kamehameha's Birthplace - 1h36m
  • This place was nice, clean, and very big. The full kitchen was great to have after camping in Volcanoes and the outdoor porch and table were a nice place to relax. Just outside of town so we loved the location.

    Daniel2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place. Nice surroundings, Quiet, comfortable with all equipments needed. We were extremely pleased. We highly recommend it. Warm welcome. RoxAnne and Robert have done everything to make our stay happy. And they have been extremely reactive and professional.

    René2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • I've traveled all over the world and this is one of the best AirBnb locations that I've ever been to. Wonderfully clean with fantastic amenities including washer and dryer (!) The caretaker Robert was extremely helpful and responsive. Including going into town to refill the propane tank for the indoor gas fireplace which was awesome for taking the evening mountain chill out of the air. Was so good that we extended our stay and a friend joined us on the futon. There is an extra charge for that but it's still an outstanding deal. Would definitely stay here again.

    Arnold2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Extremely satisfied with everything, would stay again.

    James2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Douglas2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The guest house is located on a quiet street just outside of town in a beautiful and peaceful location. The pictures made the guest house seem like a nice choice, but it’s even better in person. Communication was quick and easy, and the guest house has everything you need for a relaxing stay. A great find!

    Jennifer2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed our stay Very quiet and private. Clean,fresh...skylights in living room brighten up the place and your mood. We got a chance to watch the Milky Way from the lawn,just outside the kitchen window....MIND BLOWING experience. Thank you!

    Convenient parking on street.
  • Jocelyns place was in walking distance to down town. Easy to find with simple self check in! The space was very neat with an awesome kitchen set up, mini fridge, hot plate, microwave, hot pot, and large sink. I will definitely be back next time I am on that side of the big island !

    Mesa2020-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful spot. It has everything you will need; a little kitchen, a comfortable bed, beach necessities like a beach chair and towels, a simple setup with a mini fridge and a hot plate and a microwave as well as a good bathroom with all of those necessities. And close to some cute simple shops and King Kamehameha statue and a little over and hour drive to Kailua-Kona. It was a wonderful place to stay. I would definitely stay here again if I had the opportunity.

    Kirsten2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

    Gill2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Jocelyn's place was clean, cute, and a fantastic deal for the price. It's a garage that has been converted into a studio, with a separate bath/shower combo located right outside the unit. The place is thoughtfully decorated with a cute kitchenette and comfortable furnishings, and located within walking distance of shops and restaurants. One thing to note: there's no A/C in the unit, so it can get stuffy. However, there is a ceiling and standing fan, which helped a lot. The host was also very responsive, and check in was simple and easy with a lockbox.

    Alicia2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • very good. The night was quiet and I could sleep well. I like sunny side up, fried eggs. If there was a fry pan, it's perfect. Jocelyn is very kind and friendly. She brought oil and boiled egg cases. Thank you.

    A "tiny house" experience Big Island style. An authentic Hawaii country experience with two futons (main floor and in loft). Plenty seasonal fruit:oranges, tangerines, bananas, papayas. Large lanai overlooking the gulch, inside coffee maker, cooler, and a cozy space for being "unplugged" (no TV, internet). Access to fridge. Outdoor sink and hot shower, new outhouse. Constructed primarily of recycled and repurposed materials, in the spirit of sustainability cherished by our island.
    We'd love to welcome you with aloha and can provide additional input and guidance if you desire: make your own dehydrated bananas or fruits, help weed the pineapples, pick fruit, learn how and make your own kombucha. Of course, ideas for hikes, shopping, restaurants, and waterfalls/events are also provided upon request.
    Only four houses on my road-----this is pure country, but only 45 minutes from great beaches and most activities.
  • Loved it! We stayed here our last night on island before going back to Oahu and it was so nice 😊 If you are an anti-nature person then this might not be the best place for you because it’s a bit open to the outdoors with the screen door and outdoor shower (and a cute little gecko inside!) but if you love listening to the rain as you go to sleep and being gently woken to the sounds of birds and the like then you will love it! I thought of it a bit like “glamping” in a way

    Marissa2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Carol’s place was one of the best place we stayed at on the island! It’s very private and cozy. It is very accessible test it feels remote! Everything we need is there! I only wish we had taken some chicken to cook on the bbq :-) Carol is very nice and made us feel very welcomed! Perfect!

    Patrick2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Carol's place was a perfect quick one night stop for us.

    Jamaica2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

    Sarah2019-09-11T00:00:00Z

    Marc-André2019-08-31T00:00:00Z

    Christine2019-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Carol’s place is a delight. We just needed a place to rest up between a couple of long days driving and hiking about. Perfectly sized for the three of us with lots of lovely touches. We were able to shelter from a storm and make some grilled cheese sandwiches and then watch a movie before bed. Whilst the storm (a huge one by Hawaii standards) meant it was a little tricky to sleep soundly, this is no reflection on the loveliness of the place. Note that there is no WiFi or cell service (network dependent) so just be sure you’ve done all your onward admin prior to arrival. It’s nice to switch off. The stars outside were incredible.

  • Cynthia's place was the highlight of our trip. It is very spacious, clean and decorated exquisitely. The view is breathtaking, and beckons a fantastic hike below her home in stunning Waipi'o valley. Cynthia greeted us with a fresh breakfast and offered helpful tips for exploring the region. All of our needs were met and more. I would definitely recommend this incredibly comfortable and well loved home accompanied by this stunning view.

    Danielle2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Really comfortable space - Cynthia was really great and welcoming. View from the honeymoon suite is just like the photos. Bed was amazing too. Highly recommend.

    Daniel2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The view here is SO worth it. We almost booked another room because we thought it would be fine to just enjoy the view during time around the property, but waking up here was poetic. This room also comes with a private balcony which is the best place to enjoy the sunset, so bring a bottle of wine and picnic dinner because you won’t want to leave once you get in. Such an incredible once in a lifetime experience. The room itself is exactly as pictured and the bed is super comfy.

    Stephanie2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • WOW!. I think the pictures speak for themselves, imagine flying all the way from Texas and then waking up to that view. Incredibly clean, beautiful house and incredible location. I will definitely be coming back here! Thanks so much Cynthia!

  • Great location to stay in while you're on the Hilo side of the big island. If you're lucky, you'll be treated to some lychee... But it's truly dependent on the season (I was treated to longan!). Small little issue with ants in the bathroom but it's a farm with sheep roaming around...Can't expect it to be the cleanest place on earth. I hope to stay here on future visits.

  • Great space and host was very nice. Would stay again.

    Tony2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Clean accommodation, very friendly host. Loved the hospitality. Highly recommended.

    Rohit2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house is in a beautiful farm overlooking the ocean. Oksana was friendly and accommodating.

    Shruti2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful hobby farm overlooking the ocean. The room is so clean and comfortable. The bed and pillows feel like a cloud! The room is separated from the rest of the house via a hallway and another door but if someone is home/the door is unlocked, it's easy to get filtered water from the outside of the refrigerator, use the microwave, or chat with Oksana. We loved eating our breakfast out on the patio overlooking the ocean. There are a lot of sheep grazing- even right outside our window! We were lucky enough to see 2 newborn baby sheep too. :) Overall this was the perfect place to rest our heads for a few nights between day trips on the east side of the island.

    Kate2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

  • Oksana’s place is beautiful and very well taken care of. The bed we had was so comfortable and she offered us a great cup of coffee in the morning. The bathroom was super clean and there was laundry. Thank you for a great stay and lovely chat!

  • This space was really cute and clean! Right in the town of Honokaa, we were able to walk to restaurant and stores, and we loved how close it was to Waipio Valley!!

    Marc2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

    Emillie2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as described. Super cute place.

    Silvia2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • A quiet and safe stay in Honokaa, right across from the police station and fire station as well. The entire town is in walking distance. There were many other visitors in the area at the time but not crowded. So many wonderful places to visit. The cottage was very roomy and clean. Fresh fruit trees right outside the door. My wife really enjoyed the neighbors cat. She looked forward to seeing her every morning. Weather was great, sunny and cool. We are looking forward to returning to Honokaa in the near future and staying in this cozy cottage. Great job Mai!

    Michael2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was such a treat. The small downtown is great for a stroll and quick bite in the morning before setting off to enjoy other parts of the big island. The space itself was so relaxing, very nice decorative touches. Highly recommend for anyone looking to stay a little off the beaten tourist path. If we're on big island again we will certainly be checking this rental first :)

    Drew2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very cool space right in town. Really liked the guesthouse setup. Very conveniently located. Excellent communication with host, particularly when we thought we left an iPad behind. Mar even asked the next guest if it was there and everyone communicated immediately to help us when we were a bit frantic. I would definitely stay there again.

    Very secluded beautiful home with ocean views along the Hamakua Coast! Enter with your own hidden driveway to a completely private piece of paradise! Sweeping lawns and spectacular views of the beauty of the islands. Only 15 minutes from Laupahoehoe beach park and 25 minutes from Hilo.
    Home has a beautiful covered lanai with spectacular views! Patio table and 8 chairs along with two hanging hammocks allow you to truly enjoy those views!!! Huge yard including a fire pit for your private use. ***In accordance with local laws, Please contact the Hawaii Fire Department (808-961-8336) and give them the address if you plan to build a fire. Mahalo!
    Only 15 minutes from Laupāhoehoe point beach park. Less than 10 minutes from Papaaloa Country Store. 25 minutes from Hilo. Our favorite things to see, things to do, and places to eat: Going north (turning left out of our driveway) there is Papa’aloa country store less than 10 minutes away that is really worth going to. You can buy most necessities there and some nostalgic fun stuff, but they also prepare fantastic food in the back and have a little restaurant as well. They have live entertainment sometimes on weekends. Turn left out of our driveway, go around the first big gulch and then watch for the sign. there is a road angling off to the right that takes you straight to it. Laupahoehoe Beach Park is only a little further past Papaaloa. Go around the second big gulch and turn right, follow the windy road all the way down to the point. You can picnic there, play ball and swim. Fantastic views as well and learn about the devastation of the tsunami that wiped out the little school that used to be there. About a half hour north of us just before you get to Honokaa is Tex’s Drive-In. Fantastic food and the best malasadas (Portuguese donut common to Hawaii) served hot!!! South of us (turn right out of our driveway) watch for the signs to take the Scenic Route. It is the old road that heads to Hilo with spectacular views and things to see. Truly the beauty of the islands. In Honomu, about 10 miles from us is Akaka Falls. There is a short hike to see all the falls but so worth it!!! Breathtaking views and you get to experience the gardens of Hawaii!!! In Hilo, Rainbow Falls is right downtown!! Easy to access and breathtaking!! Coconut Island is fantastic with picnic areas, surrounded by little beaches and towers to jump off if you have the nerve! The farmers market is fantastic!! The best two days are Saturday and Wednesday. If you are in the area, that is a real highlight!! You’ll love it! It is located right next to the storefronts at Hilo Bay. The first storefront next to the farmers market has a little entrance to several places to eat. The Thai food there is wonderful and the shave ice is fantastic!!! Get the works!! Several beaches in Hilo that are great are in the Keaukaha area. Onekahakaha is a great little kids beach, then there is Richardson’s beach, For Miles Beach. Several along there. For choices of real traditional food, try Hawaiian Style Cafe. Quite a long wait but very good. Vernas Drive-In or Ken’s House of Pancakes are great too. Try the coconut syrup at Ken’s!!! You’ll get hooked! Big Island Candies right in Hilo town is a great place to visit as well. They let you sample a few things and watch them make the candies. Try the chocolate dipped shortbread cookies!! Super yummy!! Check out what’s happening with the lava flow. This is always changing and devastating, but beautiful!
  • Relaxing place. French doors that opened to the lani and the upstairs loft mad the place feel bigger. Enjoyed having stainless steel pans to use, beach stuff, and food containers to pack food!

    Jason2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • As they said it is a real paradise..great house with all that you need! Thank you for having us.

    Omar2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Situated in a little slice of heaven. Feels really secluded even though it is near the highway.

    Ian2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely loved staying at this home. Spacious, clean and very well equipped - like a home away from home. Located in a beautiful setting and not too far from local attractions. Highly recommend this home

    Leigh2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • This property is great if you want privacy and a natural surrounding. The place was inmmaculate and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The property is surrounded by trees and actually has a view of the ocean(got a nice sunrise timelapse). Great location, great home at a great value.

    Noe2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Clean place with nice outdoor eating area. Great stargazing! Quiet place to relax.

    Anne2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place to stay with a great view from the balcony.

    Osamah2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • This was one of the best Airbnb stays we’ve had in a while. It’s a very unique property - it’s super secluded and has views from the wraparound deck of the ocean. Things like a surfboard and boogie boards and beach toys, hammock on the deck and well kitted our kitchen were nice touches. The loft with its hatch access was fun - as was the huge bathtub. We felt like we were in good hands, and would absolutely stay here again!

    This magnificent 4.5 acre permaculture organic orchard retreat sits back on 750' cliff above Waipio Valley and looks to the open ocean and rugged coastline. Epic views of1000' cliffs. 3 cottages to choose from. The 2 bedroom and studio cottages are a connected building,like a side by side duplex. No children under 6.
    **Click on the small picture to the right to see more photos!! Between 2012 and 2013 Hale Kukui has received lots of positive recognition. The Lonely Planet travel guide said, 'These three tranquil and secluded cottage/units all have wonderful views and pleasing decor, but the perspective of Waipi'o from the detached cottage may make you forget your name.' Southeby's international real estate magazine cover photo features the view from the property. HGTV and Aloha Magazine did features on this unique property as well in 2013. See recommendations on Trip Adviser as well. Organic permaculture orchard, 3 cottages and caretaker's house sits back on 750' cliff above Waipio Valley, and looks to the ocean Southeast, North and Northwest up the undeveloped rugged coastline. Sometimes there are a multitude of waterfalls seen cascading down 1000' cliffs into the sea. Gaze at lush greenery, frequent rainbows, especially during the wet season (Winter/Spring). Epic views face 23 miles of these 1000' cliffs, backed up by undeveloped jungle. Whales jumping and breaching can be seen from the property during the winter/spring. Maui is visible on clear days. The area boasts a perfect climate of just enough rain to keep the streams going and the flowers blooming, cool trades off the ocean, and a daytime year-round temperature of between 70 and 85 degrees, with cooler nights. The property is landscaped with a vast variety of exotic trees, ferns, orchids, palms, flowering shrubs and exotic fruits to pick. We are in the early stages of growing Vanilla, Cocoa, black sapote (Chocolate pudding tree), Macadamia nut trees. Try our fully mature (when in season) mangoes, avocados, pomelo, Jackfruit, papaya, passion fruit, soursop, breadfruit, rambutan, lychee nuts, starfruit, Brazilian cherries, jaboticaba, cherymoya, mountain apples, true cinnamon, cloves, Miracle berries, a variety of citrus, bananas and much more grown on the property. Walk out to the point for one of the best views on the island. Walk along the cliff's edge/ocean path or explore the path through bamboo. Both short easy walks take you to an opening on the picturesque lawn going down to the cliff's edge. Take another short steep path (for sturdy feet only) past the Banyan tree and passion fruit vines into the gulch on our property. Listen to the peaceful sounds of the Waiulili Stream and our waterfall running through the property and then over a 650' cliff. Waipio Lookout is 1/2 mile away. Ocean and waterfall views abound. Enjoy the peace and privacy of your own suite complete with private outdoor soak tubs. Explore the quaint town of Honoka'a 10 minutes away with theater, restaurants,several quaint shops featuring locally made goods, outdoor farmers market, gas, groceries and a hospital/clinic.
    Staying at Hale Kukui is an ecoadventure and an end destination in itself! It is also a great jump off point for other destinations! This epic property is unique for its historically important location, for its short paths, private nooks, exotic organic orchard, unmatched views and size/character of property. Overview of the neighborhood: Old Hawaii meets modern conveniences, safe, private, lush natural beauty and most of the comforts of home. If you are able to pull yourself away to see other parts of the island, Hale Kukui is a great stepping stone to the whole island. Walk or drive 1.5 miles to the black sand beach down a 25% grade road or 1/2 mile to Waipio lookout. Walk 1/4 mile to get island made ice cream at the Art Store. Its an easy 10 minute drive to the farmer's market in Honoka'a where there are restaurants, several quaint shops featuring locally made goods and Malama Market for groceries. Try local ride the rim, surfing, biking,helicopter tours of Waipio Valley, horseback, hiking, camping and enjoy the longest black sand beach in Hawaii below the property. Drive to Hawaiian cowboy country in Waimea and you may smell eucalyptus on your way to the cooler climate in Waimea (Kamuela). Here there is more shopping,fast food chains, a bigger hospital and some of the best food in the islands is here (only 30 minutes away).Several restaurants to choose from Go to Merriman's for the best seafood and Kailua pork quesadillas. Drive over to the white sand beaches about 35minutes from Waimea, the 5 star hotels and high end shopping of the west coast. Otherwise drive east along the lush Hamakua coast, see Akaka falls, the world famous botanical gardens, Hilo, Volcanoes National park, Natural hot springs in Pahoa. Take the saddle road between Hilo and Waimea and drive to the 14,000 top of Mauna Kea along the way (many countries have their space observatories there). Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain in the world from the sea floor. Visit Kona and see if you think the preferred coffee of the white house is really as good as the lesser locally known rich tasting Hamakua coast coffee. Hale Kukui grows small amounts of its own and while we don't dry and roast it, you are welcome to try. Hilo has a great outdoor market, shopping, surfing, etc. and it is a beautiful 1 hour drive along the Hamakua coast. Another hour or so beyond is the must see Volcanoes National Park and swim in the hot springs in Pahoa.. Kona is about 1.5 hours away along very nice highways as are most places. The whole island has so much to offer but you will definitely want to relax at Hale Kukui for its incredible views and natural private surroundings. Each cottage has its own kitchen/kitchenette, internet and full bathroom.
  • It is a wonderful home base for exploring the north end of the island. A beautiful cottage, comfortable, with an amazing view. So much fun walking the property and picking fresh fruit every day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Weston2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The house is private. The frogs at night delightful. The view breathtaking. The inside and out immaculate, host very responsive, and fruit bowl exotic and delicious. It’s not a 5-star hotel (beds squeak a bit and mattresses aren’t the newest). But we knew that. The location is idyllic. We would love to go again and will if we get the chance!

    Christine2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Breathtaking views!

    Shannon2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Paula and Dan's place. The place is incredible, very roomy, and you can't beat the view of Waipio Valley from the lanai. The outdoor soaking tub was wonderful to stargaze from, and the sounds of the tropical birds at night was fantastic. Paula provided us with lots of fruit (avocado, oranges, lemons) from the orchard which was really a wonderful touch. I recommend this place highly! But to any light sleepers, I recommend bringing earplugs as the tin roof and evening rains can be pretty loud and might make falling asleep very difficult.

    Breanna2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property and the view of the waterfalls right from the garden was amazing. The fruits from the trees are all delicious and we enjoyed all the citrus fruits. Kitchen is basic and had everything we needed for 2 days of cooking. What we didn’t find in the kitchen (oil) was supplied by Paula. Thanks for everything Paula

    Radhika2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect spot for nature lovers. The views out the cabins are breathtaking. And you can’t beat the fresh fruit from the orchard. I would highly recommend for a relaxing getaway.

    Kathleen2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The view is just out of this world! Comfortable and lovely. Coffee and fruit supplied which is a lovely touch!

    Emma2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing location. Most of the resorts on the big island spend a lot of money to create a very artificial environment. The Waipio Valley is the real deal.

  • The place is perfect who know how value the simple things in life and find your happiness inside you.Amazing people and really good vibe!!

    Ronan2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great little spot - waterfall, the sound of croakie frogs, a wonderful stay.

    Steve2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Best place!

    Ida2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We really had a great time at the cabanas! The hammocks were super comfortable, and just what we needed after spending a few days tent camping. The premises were lovely, and the facilities were clean and readily accessible. Lots of wildlife were around, including a few wild pigs. Overall it was a great experience.

    Jourdan2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beautiful! If you want an authentic jungle experience with the comfort of a cabana this place is a great choice. Everyone in Hamakua House is really nice and helpful. Super recommend this place to people who want an adventure in a beautiful location.

    Neggin2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

    Jai2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice stay that had more amenities than expected. There were more sites than I had thought, and so we encountered more people than expected. That being said, you'll only encounter them if you go to the main building, as each cabana is fairly isolated. For us, it was great to meet other travelers without having to constantly interact with them. The tent like walls shielded bugs well, and provided good privacy. Very lush area!

    This is a great space for budget minded travelers and who are looking for a safe, comfy and affordable accommodation. The room is in a very humble finished basement suite that my husband and I call home when we are in Hilo. The upstairs and downstairs units have separate entrances. If you appreciate the simple things in life, this space is the place for you. It has privacy, queen bed, wifi, Roku TV, a desk, eating space, kitchenette and a full bath. For $30-45 a night who could ask for more.
    It's a large room with separate areas for entertaining and sleeping. It accommodates 2 people very comfortably on a queen bed and futon sofa. The upstairs is a 3 bedroom home unit that we also Airbnb so it can get a bit noisy when guest have kids or heavy feet. There are a pair of bluetooth noise canceling earphones that connect to the TV which has Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Pandora and more so you can zone out to your show of choice.
    The house is in an old plantation village toward the end of a cul de sac. There is a big park steps from the house that is perfect for a stroll or stargazing. It's very quiet at night except for a few coqui frogs. However the roosters sound off in the neighborhood at dawn and feeding time.
  • Great experience! 12/10

    Avery2020-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Val’s Airbnb is a secret gem and def will be staying there again.

  • A great budget friendly private room. Would recommend. Everything a private room needs; Clean, Hot water, wifi, parking, and basic cookware. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

    Michael2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place surrounded by nature. Kind host, very helpful - just ask.

    Veit2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Most likely the best value for money you can get in Hilo. Amazing place to discover the east side of the island from!

    Ricardo2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! If you’re a light sleeper, definitely bring earplugs, as there can be rooster and baby sounds. It had everything we needed, I’d stay again.

    Sean2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We can spend relaxedly in large room. The kitchen and shower room are almost reserved, The host, Val, is very friendly but gives me a reasonable sense of distance so I can relax. I can lend a washing machine and a dryer for free, so I think that long trips will be saved. I couldn't hear any chickens except in the kitchen, and I didn't mind the frog chorus personally. I was happy to see Amazon Prime!

    Welcome to our new home in beautiful Ahualoa! We live on a very quiet, one lane country road, 10 minutes above historic Honoka'a town. We are a family of 4 and we have 3 friendly dogs. You will be staying in our detached guest house which has a queen bed, a full bathroom and a kitchenette. We are on 5.5 acres with cows and chickens. There is a beautiful view of Mauna Kea and a lot of hiking and exploring do right from the house.
    The 400sf detached guest house has convenient parking and is completely private. We are in a remote location which only has satellite internet service, so streaming TV and movies is not always possible, but our connection will allow for checking email and other basic online activities. Cell service may also be spotty here. The kitchenette is equipped with basic dishes, a toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker (and coffee grinder), and a small refrigerator.
    Ahualoa is a very quiet area with beautiful country roads. There are farms everywhere and some forest areas to be explored. Nearby Honoka'a town is one of the last plantation towns in Hawaii and there are lots of shops and restaurants, all located along the picturesque main street. Just a few miles from Honoka'a town is Waipio Valley, where you can find a beautiful black sand beach, waterfalls and wild horses.
  • If you are looking for a peaceful getaway, look no further. Staying at Matt & Krista's little cottage was a delightful experience filled with Aloha. If you are interested in getting away from the swarm of tourists, from the cookie cutter resort type experience, this is the place for you. Nestled at the top of a windy road up from the quaint little town of Honoka'a, this place is a perfect getaway for a couple (and children if you are willing to share space - which we did with our 1 year old). Clean, simple and lovely decoration and equipped with just what you need. The kitchenette has a full fridge, microwave, coffee maker and toaster oven and we easily made meals every morning and night. But most importantly, the warmth and kindness of Matt & Krista were the highlight of our stay. With their 2 wonderful children and 3 loving dogs, we felt right at home, cared for and like old friends. I highly recommend this place! Mahalo to Matt, Krista and the family.

    Lauren2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Matt and Krista, we loved staying at your place! It was very clean and had great amenities. The views of the stars at night was spectacular as well as the view the next morning of Mauna Lau. Krista was so warm, friendly and helpful. She suggested where we should go back into town and eat. We met Matt the morning after our stay. He is a very kind and warm man. We lived talking to him about him beautiful architectural designs including our accommodations and their home. You will not be disappointed by the A plus accommodations but mostly by the warmth and kindness and genuineness of this family! Mahalo!

    This lovely hale li'i (tiny house in Hawaiian) is a perfect private little get away place! The place is fully furnished and has a kitchenette complete with a single burner induction cooktop, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, blender and toaster. There is no oven but the large lanai (veranda) is fully equipped for barbecueing and lounging around! The coup de grâce is the bathroom shower which is very spacious with a skylight and features a custom tile mosaic mural created by the host!
    Hale e Komo Mai is located in a residential neighborhood yet visitors find that once at the housie it feels like a private secret little gem way off away and secluded. Please be aware that the location is not far as the crow flies from the main road and road noise can be heard while outside. Visitors can leave phones and devices in the car or bring them in to access the world as the housie has it’s own WIFI and multiple USB outlets throughout! Hale e Komo Mai is well situated 2 miles from the center of historic Kamuela which is nestled in Parker Ranch yet boasts several of the world’s premier telescopes. Waimea (Kamuela) is also located about midway between Kona and Hilo. We are central to both and Hawi which is an artsy and cute little town at the north end of the island. Kamuela airport (MUE) is our airport and can be flown into from Honolulu, Kahului, and Moloka’i on Mokulele Airlines. It’s a very small airport that accommodates the small 9 passenger inter island planes! It’s a great way to get a first look at the island! Guests will need a rental car to get the most out of their stay. Check online at Turo for rental cars if you plan to arrive at MUE! You can find a lot of options through that site and it’s like Airbnb for car rentals! Hale e Komo Mai is about 2 miles from the center of town and about 14 miles from the nearest coastline/beach. Other airport options are the two international airports; KOA (Kona) and ITO (Hilo) and the big car companies are available at both.
    Our place is in an old settled local quiet neighborhood that is 2 miles from the center of Waimea on the Big Island of Hawaii. Waimea (also known as Kamuela) is a historic town of about 10,000 people and was established amidst the famous Parker Ranch.

  • This is an absolutely over the top experience. Loki and Frank have literally built this tiny house and the equally large lanai by themselves for their family, and the quality of materials and aesthetics and furnishings totally reflects that. You will never step into a more beautiful shower! Everything is beautifully and carefully chosen, from the Italian hand soap to the exquisite quilt over the bed to the wicker furniture on the deck. No effort or expense has been spared. Moreover, the hosts are present and available if you wish, but respect your space if that is your preference. Loki even brought us chicken soup when one of us had a cold -- not to mention the banana bread and fresh laid eggs and chocolates that started our stay. You will leave here completely spoiled.

  • Loki and Frank are the most caring hosts you’ll ever meet. They make sure your every wish is looked after and provide you with so many thoughtful touches. They are very friendly and oh so generous. Housie was the perfect home base for our long stay on the Big Island. The location is great and we especially loved sitting on the large deck. A home away from home!

  • This is a wonderful place to stay. Everything is beautiful and comfortable and clean and Loki is a super-helpful and kind host.

  • Loki's tiny house is a tiny house, but very well appointed, clean and comfortable. The large lanai is really the living area of this accommodation, having very comfortable chairs and a bbq. The house is a few miles out of town, so if you want to walk to town, it is a little far. Loki truly is a superhost and really cares about her guests (restaurant advice, travel advice, home made banana bread, fresh fruit from her yard, etc). The personal touches are really appreciated.

    Anita2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Loki's Housie is truly a home away from home, perfect for a couple wanting a quiet retreat far from the busyness and frivolity of town and resorts. It is perfect for those who wish to cook for themselves, with a complete kitchen and BBQ. The bed was absolutely luxurious, we slept like babies (note that it has a soft pillowtop). Everything from the large, private lanai to the huge custom shower was clearly designed and built with love by Loki and Frank. You may also meet their two beautiful pooches, friendly cat, and neighbor goats. All in all, we cannot recommend it enough.

  • Loki and Frank are wonderful hosts. They made us feel comfortable from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Their place is so charming. We loved watching the neighbor's goats while we ate meals on the Lanai, and Loki has adorable animals, too! Go give the kitty lots of pets while you're there! We highly recommend the Saturday farmers market for breakfast or lunch, the tree Sanctuary for a quick hike, and Waipi'o valley for a more strenuous hike! The robe and slippers, as well as the gorgeous bathroom, really helped us feel we were on vacation. We highly recommend staying at this adorable housie!

    Chloe2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • The house is an excellent place to stay and explore the big island from. Ideally located equidistant from a lot of hiking and attractions in a fun and friendly town. Loki truly hasn’t missed a touch to make a wary traveler comfortable.

    This large beautiful single family home is just a 10 minute walk to Kalopa State Park, 10 minute drive to Honoka'a town, and 20 minutes to Waimea. The house is up in the mountain on one acre of land. Experience the beauty of the Hamakua Coast as this location is perfect for any adventure. Honokaa is a quiet town and situated between Hilo and Kona. If you are looking for serenity this is the one for you. If you want night life and busy action might want to keep looking.
    Your private bedroom is on the opposite side of the house. On your side you have 1.5 bathrooms and a second bedroom with a full size futon. You also have private access to the lanai where you can enjoy your morning coffee or tea. My internet can be slow at times. Should be okay for basic emailing and social media but you may experience problems if you want to video chat or watch a movie on your own device.
    I am about 1/2 mile from Kalopa State park and a 12 minute drive to Honokaa town. My home is for travelers who want to get away from the city and enjoy some peace and quiet.
  • Tammie has a lovely home in a nice, quiet part of the island, close to a great park. And she has a really sweet old cat!

    John2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here! Tammie was so helpful. We loved eating out on the porch while eating our meals and seeing the ocean.

    Ashlee2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Tammie's place was a very good choice for us. The view from the front porch is absolutely beautiful!! The bedroom was roomy, big screen TV. The house was very clean. Tammie has a very friendly little dog and cat. There are fresh fruit trees in the front yard and Tammie lets you pick the fruit. I can't say enough good things about the accommodations and the host.

    Sparky2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Tammie's beautiful Honokaa home. Tammie is an amazing and understanding host! We had fresh fruit for breakfast from her yard nearly every morning and fell in love with the Honokaa area. It was the perfect place to wake up to every morning before our travels and the best place to return to at night after our many adventures.

    Belle2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely host and home.

    Susan2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Tammie was really nice. The house has a great location and is very spacious. We felt so well and the farewell was difficult. Thanks Tammie

    Renate2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful, peaceful escape. We were very comfortable and Tammie was a great hostess. Will be back.

    Terri2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Tammy is welcoming and such a gracious host. I would recommend this experience to anybody.
