We live and work on O'ahu and love to visit Hawai'i Island!

Lore Aiwohi, Ashley McDonald purchased this house in 2012

We fell in love with the Hamakua Coast, and the small sub-division of Hakalau Plantation Village was a perfect spot for our home away from home. We love the view, the constant breeze, walk to the beach and even the coqui frogs!

Perfect house and size for us!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time here. After a long day at Volcano National Park, we were thrilled to come to this clean and beautiful house. Ashley was so nice to contact me when they were done cleaning to allow an earlier check-in. It was the perfect size for my parents, 3 kids (ages 3-8), husband, and myself. The parents took the 1 bedroom retreat upstairs, equipped with full bathroom, and we spread out in the 2 bedrooms downstairs. I was worried about the house not having AC because when we left Honolulu had the hottest day this summer, but we were comfortable with the ceiling fans in all the rooms. Everything in the home is brand new and very clean. The location was also ideal for us because we drove out to Kona twice during the trip. It was nice staying in this countryside retreat. Very cute neighborhood. Beautiful island, beautiful house!

Beautiful, clean, new, roomy. Close to many desired sight-seeing locations. Felt right-at-home. Only draw back was construction at lot directly next door.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
Our recent visit was wonderful. The house is incredibly clean and comfortable. The highway is close behind the house but it wasn't too disturbing. They are building two houses around this house but we didn't have any noise disruptions from that either. We never ran out of hot water, even when a few showered at the same time. Everything was above my expectations. The only slight complaint for some was there was NO cell service for AT&T which made it hard to handle business back home however, the wifi was fantastic so we were able to use Skype and FaceTime without any issues. Ashley is a wonderful manager for the property. She was always available for us whenever we had questions or concerns. For the cost of the rental this is absolutely a great place to stay.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely adored this house! It was so nice to be able to come "home" after a long day of sightseeing. The house was immaculately clean which was very important to us. There is no air conditioning but you honestly don't need it. Just open the windows and enjoy the fresh cool breeze from the ocean. I even got chilly during the night so the windows being open definitely cooled the house down. The location is great and the amenities are wonderful. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer!!!!

Couldn't have been better

Couldn't have been better

This will be so effusive that I must point out that I have never met the owners and only know them through VRBO.

My wife and I wanted to spend a month in Hawaii, part of that time with our two adult sons, daughter-in-law, and toddler granddaughter. This home accommodated all of us easily. The bedrooms are all a nice size and very comfortable. The front porch (should I say lanai?) has a magnificent view of the ocean and the sunrise came into our bedroom window each morning. What a wonderful way to wake up!

The living room and kitchen are the width of the house and it's all open and airy. Every room has a ceiling fan so even when it's hot outside, inside is always comfortable. Nights were delicious to go to sleep.

For those among you who might be neat freaks, this home is immaculate. It even passed inspection by my wife, no small task. There are plenty of dishes, silverware, utensils, a microwave and a really big refrigerator/freezer. When the times comes that we return, this is the place. It couldn't have been better.

You should know that there is not much night-life in the immediate area so if you're looking for that kind of excitement, you'd have to look pretty hard. But if you're looking for the beauty of the "real" Hawaii and a quiet rural area, this is the place.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
This house was a beautiful location and convenient to where we needed to be on the Hamakua Coast of the Big Island. There is some construction on a new home in front, which hopefully will not impede visibility to the ocean view down the road as well as the noisy traffic here and there behind. Overall the house was a wonderful experience for us! Private setting and quiet with beautiful sunsets from the front Lanai. We would definitely rent this home again should be return to the Big Island.

Come relax is this spacious 3 bedroom and 3 full bath home with complete kitchen, washer/dryer and dishwasher. This house was built in August 2012, and has porcelain tile and bamboo flooring the first floor and carpeting on the second floor.

Enjoy spectacular ocean views from the lanai with your family. Cool breezes and ceiling fans in every room will keep you comfortable all year round. This home comfortably sleeps 6, with a King size bed in the master bedroom, and a queen size bed in each of the other two bedrooms.

The house and your belongings are secured by Alert Alarm for 24 hour protection.

Five minutes south is the quaint town of Honomu with Akaka Falls and Mr. Ed's Bakery. Downtown Hilo is an additional 10 minute drive south, where you will find restaurants, museums and unique local stores (Sig Zane and Hawaiian Force are both found only in Hilo!). Continue on another 30 minutes south to visit the Volcano National Park.

To the North, beautiful Waipio Valley is a 30 minute drive. Tour the Hawaiian Vanilla Company in Paauilo and continue on to Waimea and paniolo (cowboy) country.

If you are splitting your Hawai'i Island stay between the East and West sides, this home is an easy and breathtaking two hour drive from Kailua-Kona.

**July 2014 update: there is construction of a new house next door and across the street. Both homes are almost complete. Any noise is minimal at this point, and limited to 8:30-4:30 M-F. I will update construction status as it progresses. July 29, 2014: construction continues, but noise is minimal. I do apologize for the inconvenience!
