Overview

Honokaa House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, ocean view with soothing trade winds.

A custom-designed home nestled among flowers and fruit trees at the end of a country lane. Here, you'll find all the conveniences, but no sign of tourism to detract from the charm of 'Old Hawaii'. Open decks, rather than closed hallways, connect the 'Great Room' (spacious living/dining/kitchen) to the bedrooms. The chef(s) can easily see and converse with their friends and family in the dining and living room areas. On a cool or rainy evening, the fireplace can be enjoyed from most areas of the Great Room. Walls in all rooms are adorned with original paintings and limited edition prints by Hawaiian artists. You can enjoy beautiful views and soft breezes from inside the house - especially the Great Room with its large expanses of glass - and from the open decks outside each guest room. When guests first arrive, they often say, 'the pictures don't do it justice', and 'It feels like a botanical garden sanctuary!'

About Dave

Young seniors in love with each other and this heavenly piece of land. For 20 years we have worked with the land to bring forth verdant vistas, abundant fruit and nut trees, meditative nooks, honoring the spirits of the generations who loved this land before us.

Dave purchased this house in 1994

Why Dave chose Honokaa

This land called out to us the first time we saw it. For a year, we lived in a tent where we could feel every breeze and hear each birdsong, while we designed a home to reflect the relaxed Hawaiian lifestyle while taking fullest advantage of the tradewinds and the stunningly beautiful view of the blue Pacific - two miles away but seemingly close enough to touch from our vantage point at 1,000 feet elevation where ii's rarely very hot or cold, but almost always 'just right'.

What makes this house unique

Clean air. Peace. Quiet. Serenity. Wild turkeys. Fragrant flowers. Twenty-two varieties of fruits you can pick and enjoy in season. Swaying palms. Colors everywhere, including just about every shade of green imaginable. Relaxation. Outdoor hot tub. Hawaii the way the ancients enjoyed it, but with up-to-date conveniences for your comfort.

Great Stay on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in this beautiful home. The owners were welcoming and invited us to a house concert at their new home on top of the hill. We liked being on the quiet side of the island and enjoyed the small town atmosphere. Charlie the dog was a real joy and Hoka the horse got our carrots.

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5
We spent our Honeymoon at this beautiful, private home. If you read the other reviews its apparent what an amazing place this is.
THE GOOD: Very Private, fresh limes, oranges, avocados, mac nuts, hot tub, washer and dryer, Jazz collection, Charlie (He will play ball for hours and even brought us a big avocado when he couldn't find his ball) Lots of hot water, comfortable bed, coffee grinder, geckos, Honokaa, and so much more.
THE NOT SO GOOD: Your time here goes by too fast! There are a couple mosquitos

Amazing corner of paradise

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cottage for a week with our two adult daughters and six year old granddaughter. All of us just loved the house, the gardens and the peaceful setting. Our granddaughter especially loved the animals. The adults enjoyed walking around the property every morning and admiring the different fruit trees and flowers, relaxing in the evening in the hot tub. The cottage had everything you might ever need including boogie boards. The owners were so friendly and helpful. We would definitely rent again but for two weeks next time.

An absolute delight

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place this is, and what wonderful hosts too. Our original plans for staying down near Pahoa were washed away thanks to hurricane Iselle, but Dave and Sherry were more than willing to accommodate us at the last minute, and we are grateful for it. Of all the areas on Big Island, the Hamakua Coast turned out to be our favorite, and we really took to the tight-knit community feel of Honokaa, with its galleries and restaurants (although the local supermarket has everything you need for cooking in).

The house itself is great, the kitchen has everything you need and more, and the layout of the house is perfect with bedrooms on either side off the main living space. That allowed our daughters (9 and 12) their own feeling of freedom and gave us some space too.

Best of all, though, are the gardens and the views. I just enjoyed walking through them looking at the various tropical plants and fruit trees, and the girls enjoyed feeding the horse or throwing the ball for Charlie the super friendly dog. The night skies are terrific too, I saw the milky way clearly for the first time in years.

Waipio Valley is less than ten minutes up the road, Waimea less than half an hour, Hilo about an hour, and the beaches on the west side less than an hour (Hapuna being our favorite). All were easily reached with little fuss.

This review may sound over the top, but really, we had such a wonderfully relaxing time here that we're dreaming already of a return, this time for a longer stay. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
Everything was as described. Dave and Sherry were excellent hosts and quite helpful. I cannot say enough there. This is a great location that is away from the busy city. The location is quiet, peaceful and quite breathtaking. Easy driving between Kona and Hilo with plenty of activities and sightseeing in either direction. Overall, my wife and I had a wonderful time. We would highly recommend booking with Dave and Sherry.
