WE LOVED IT.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week in this wonderful, lovely, and quiet private home. The house is very spacious yet cozy. The fireplace is a great plus. We used it as a base to explore the Volcano National Park, Puna, and Hilo. The owner, Vicki, was very helpful and warm. She also gave us a tour to the Volcano Observation Laboratory which was extremely interesting. We enjoyed our stay very much and highly recommend this place as a home away from home on the Big Island.

HEALING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
My 20-year-old son and I stayed at Ho’omaika’i and it truly was a blessing. Serrendipity brought us to Ho’omaika’i. The house was appointed with cut flowers and greenery in the hostess' beautifully handcrafted ceramic vases, and each room had a different arrangement. Our hostess welcomed us into her home and spent precious time to share with us about the volcano area, her love and knowledge of volcanos, and also life in the islands. She gave us plenty of privacy and was always available if we needed her attention. There are a number of rooms in the house and the yard is private and landscaped with rainforest species. The house is clean and well stocked. The kitchen had all the appliances, dishware, cookware, and condiments needed to cook at home. A visit to the grocery store before arrival is smart as supplies are limited in Volcano. The house is located very close to the National park and to town. The volcano area is definitely a magical place. Our hostess and her lovely home made our healing and memorable vacation. I couldn't imagine doing it any other way. Thank you!

HAPPY HA'OLE

Happy Ha'ole
  • 5 of 5
Driving up the mountain toward the volcano was an adventure, but as I neared the rain forest the soothing climate unraveled a mystery that was totally unexpected. The house is lovely, cozy, private, comfortable and really beautiful, with gardens to match. The beauty of the surrounding hapu ferns, the orchids, the flowers and the song of the birds made me realize that I had maybe entered into the holiday of a lifetime....It was everything I hoped it for more More! The owner was friendly, quiet, and so accommodating, and as she is of Hawaiian decent she knows the islands as only a local can. She was able to suggest day trips that opened my eyes to the islands. Besides the breathtaking ocean jaunts, greensand beaches, the trips to beautiful Hilo, the Volcano open market on Sunday, one of the most stunning journeys of my life was a night trip to witness the glow of Halemaumau. The volcano changed me, as I am sure it can change your life! If you want a real Hawaiian experience, stay in this lovely eco-hideaway. I'm still so pleased I did.

CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, QUIET AND A GOOD LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I really enjoyed our time we spent here. The owner is very nice and accomodating. We were given good advice on where to go and what to see. Unfortunately we did not get to visit enough. The apartment is quite nice and cozy. Well kept and clean. This is a wonderful place to relax and take day trips from. I am very glad we were able to make this location part of our Haiwii trip. I highly recommend staying here and avoid some of the resorts or hotels.

The hostess is very welcoming and helpful, and her house is perfectly situated close to the Volcanoes National Park, surrounded by a beautiful rain forest garden. Her rental is very spacious and clean and has a great window seat looking out to the garden.

AMAZING PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful experience! The apartment is in the middle of the rain forest, even though it takes only 2 minutes to get there from the highway. The location is beautiful, you can see all different kinds of trees and flowers from the windows, and you wake up with the birds singing. The apartment is clean, spacious, and well equipped. We stayed there 3 days and we used the kitchen a lot. Wifi works perfectly, and the connection is fast enough to make phone calls. The owner is great. She is always ready to help and she recommended us some nice places to visit in the area. This is totally worth the price.
