SERENE, RESTORED PLANTATION HOUSE WITH SWEEPING OCEAN VIEWS

Honokaa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

From the large, sweeping lanai (deck), Maui can be seen in the distance across the Pacific Ocean. The house is a lovingly renovated and updated sugar plantation house, retaining the feel of a bygone era. Superbly crafted and furnished with tropical bamboo and teak furniture, it offers an elegant and light filled space for renewal. All water running into the house is double filtered, and floors are wood and tile. Features a lovely bathroom with a soaking tub, a large kitchen with Mexican counter tops, a master bedroom with a queen bed, a small bedroom with twin beds, and a fold out queen bed in the living room.

Guests at the View House have exclusive use of our spa, as well. Our infrared sauna, hot tub and cold tub sit on totally private decks, surrounded by lime trees and moringa trees. Guests will find an additional shower room and water closet in the adjoining tiled breezeway.

My wife, Connie, and I are both Naturopathic Physicians and maintain a small, part-time office on the property. We see patients and tend the organic orchards and gardens. Our dear friends, Marcus and Shigeko Bachino, work with us in providing unobtrusive support, when needed. It is a blessing to live in this special place and be so closely in touch with the land. We welcome all visitors with warm aloha and invite them to partake in the healing, restorative energies that are so tangible everywhere on the property.

Marcel Hernandez purchased this house in 1999

We looked for land to purchase in Hawaii for more than 10 years before we found this little piece of paradise. When we bought it, it had two aging plantation houses in need of extreme TLC. Our close friends thought we were nuts. Many years later, even Hawaii-born visitors marvel at the beauty and magic that are so tangible everywhere on the property.

Special places with benches invite visitors to stop and breathe in the beauty. Fruit tree loaded with their bounty are perfect for grazing.

Imagine that you wake up in the morning to the songs of tropical birds. The sunrise is filtering through the palms, jacaranda and orchid trees, creating shadow patterns on the walls of your bedroom. The soft, gentle rain that fell through part of the night created a soothing cadence on the metal roof of your lovely quarters. You have slept well. Sliding open the large glass door, you step from your bedroom out onto the lanai, take a deep breath of pure ocean air, do a few stretches and gaze out over the deep blues of the Pacific Ocean. The trade winds are light. It is a sparkling clear day. Across the channel, Maui is shrouded in a slight mist. Donning a sarong, you walk down the lanai steps into the orchard to collect your fruit salad. A couple of ripe papayas, a passion fruit or two and a starfruit tumble into your harvest basket. A hand of tasty apple bananas awaits you on the kitchen counter. A huge, round butter avocado and a couple of Tahitian limes complete your breakfast. What to do after breakfast? Should you pack a picnic lunch and hike 40 minutes through the miles of preserve bordering the estate to the spectacular coastal views from the cliffs overlooking the ocean? Perhaps a beach trip to the legendary Waipio Valley, just four miles away? Or a 5-minute trip into town to browse the galleries and have a cup of tea? There are so many things to see and do on the island, like visiting the volcano, driving up to the Mauna Kea observatories, exploring the lush drive to Hilo. Maybe you'll just lie in the hammock for a while and think about it. Or lounge in the spa. After all, it is a gorgeous day, and you are here to relax and rejuvenate.

Amazing views, lovely house, perfect escape

  • 5 of 5
This was by far our favourite place on the island. We stayed in four places over two weeks. The views were amazing. The kitchen was fully stocked. The welcome fruit basket was very aloha. The bathroom had everything we needed. The hot tub didn't have strong jets but was great for a soak in between the infrared sauna and cold shower! This space is lovely.

We loved the walk down to Waipio beach (pack a lunch and stay the day) and the town of Honoka'a. The People's Theatre and all the local stores and cafes were awesome. There is no reason to head to the other side of the island! We stayed only 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer.

It only rained a bit a night and one afternoon. The rain seemed to stick to the higher elevations and not dump on us at the plantation house. I really recommend this place for everyone. Kids would love to run around in the orchard (oranges, lemons, limes, rabutans, bananas, papaya, mango and more!) and others would appreciate the peace and quiet. The road is directly outside the house and you can hear cars going to and fro outside the house probably to Waipio Valley outlook but this was faint and we really didn't care; the views were too captivating. The evenings and nights were so quiet and the night skies were stunning!! The house is on a naturopathic clinic and spa retreat but there was no one there while we stayed. Only two caretakers were there and we barely saw them. The hard wood floors were lovely. Everything was lovely and private. We hope to come back to visit again! The owner and his secretary at his naturopathic clinic in California were both delightful to deal with while booking! We recommend a stay at the plantation house!

Unique, Private Get Away

  • 4 of 5
We started our stay on the Big Island here and it was the perfect way to "get away". Remote, great view, and close to many activities on the north end of the island. While the owners also live on the property, they were very respectful of our privacy. The sauna and whirlpool were an extra bonus (although the whirlpool jets were broken). The road noise was a little more than we expected based on the location. Overall, a great place to stay.

Romantic get away

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for a quiet romantic get away. The area is so peaceful and beautiful, with just a short drive to sight seeing. See the true beauty of the Big Island with this as a tranquil home base. Very clean, safe and private. Enjoyed the non resort seen with the ability to drive to such places for the after noon when the mood struck. Was able to really unwind. When I return I hope to stay here again.

A great choice!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from two weeks at this great place on the Hamakua coast and loved every day of it. The house is very comfortable, very clean and well equipped. We enjoyed getting up in the morning and having breakfast on the deck overlooking the Pacific ocean. The garden complete with swing and bench on a very peaceful spot was teaming with flowers and fruits. We harvested a few lemons and avocados.
The night jasmin smelled wonderful and it was a pleasure to wander through the property and look at all the differen plants. Below the property were grazing cows which reminded us of our home in the Austrian alps. The sauna and hot tub were a welcome addition, we did a "wellness day" on one of the more blustery days. The care takers were nice and helpful and sent us back to the house with an armload of fresh basil, peppers and macademia nuts.
Honokaa is a laid back town and the movie theater was GREAT.
The house comes with the sounds of frogs at night, doves and other birds during the day and some of the sounds of a neighborhood.
We will definately choose to stay here again when we come back to the Big Island.
