The house is gorgeous. It's beautifully appointed and feels like home. The amenities are wonderful; pool, spa, full kitchen. Just right for lazy breakfasts or dinners on the screened porch with spectacular views overlooking the Pacific. A 5 minute walk takes you to the local town that's a real community with movie theater and lots of other things to do. It's the best location to see the whole Island - 40 minutes to either Hilo or Kona. Perfect for day trips to beaches, volcanos, tropical forests, lovely pasture lands. and more. The weather is perfect with lovely Trade Winds that softly blow through the house. When it rains, there's a waterfall right outside the bedroom. I couldn't have enjoyed my stay more. I can't wait to go back.
I was looking for a place on the Big Island that would feeling like visiting the real Hawaii away from the glitz of big resorts and swarms of tourists. Well, I found a fabulous place in the village of Honokaa.
The outside of the house understates the spacious, luxurious interior. When you enter the house, you encounter a roomy dinning area with a beautiful dining table set and a wall of windows that put you right in the trees. There is even a water fall right along side the house when it rains. There is a screened lanai on this level that looks right out to the ocean. The ocean breeze is heavenly. The kitchen on this level is fully equipped with all conveniences including a dishwasher which I don’t even have at home.
The second floor has the master bedroom as well as additional room for other guests. The lanai on this level is not screen so you can sit and star gaze to one’s content. A washer and dryer are located on this level. The main bathroom is completely tiled with an open, walk-in shower and a jacuzzi tub. A door on this level leads out to a deck and steps down to the wave pool.
The house is located off the main road so there is little to no traffic noise. Between the comfortable bed and the jungle serenade I had no trouble drifting off to sleep.
The hosts, Patricia and Mohamed are very friendly, responsive and a joy to meet. I can’t wait for my trip back to stay at this wonder place again.
We spent 4 nights at this beautiful home that offered absolutely everything we needed. Already planning a return to spend more time here. Great hosts!
