I'm so glad I stayed at Hamakua Ranch House. The owners were perfect hosts. Terri made a wonderful breakfast everyday and helped us with any excursions for the day or allowed us to simply hang out on the large deck with cocktails and views of the ocean over the rolling hills. At night she would prepare a fire in the outdoor pit and have smores.
The location was fantastic. It is slightly secluded so the stars were amazing. I really feel like the location allowed me to see beyond the tourist side of Hawaii.
I also liked the set up of the beautiful house. There is a large dining area, living area and another seating area, but the bedrooms are down the hallway so it felt like there was some privacy. The bathrooms are attached to the rooms and have great showers! The bedrooms also have access to the deck.
There is a separate cabin type house. I don't remember how many it sleeps, but I walked through it. It was spacious and cute.
My entire experience was excellent. We used the free WiFi and even did one load of laundry. Terri asked for suggestions for improvement, but I had nothing to say. She really cares about the comfort of each guest and puts a lot of effort into your stay.
