Honokaa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Queen Bedrooms + 1 Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This private home on the lush Hamakua Coast is a beautiful blend of past and present. Located just a block from the overlook of the sacred Waipio Valley, the house allows visitors to commune with nature and history, while enjoying all the comforts of the 21st century.

We invite you to experience all the wonders of Pele’s home as you explore the Big Island, or simply relax on the lanai and enjoy the simple pleasure of quiet days in old Hawaii. Hiking, ATV tours, and horseback riding are within walking distance, and the historic town of Honoka’a is just a 10 minute drive away. A two minute walk will bring you to the overlook of the revered Waipio Valley, with its spectacular views, thundering waterfalls and black sand beach. Whales visit our islands each winter, and are visible from the deck.

This home is filled with glass art, blown by the owner. The open floor plan and cathedral ceilings invite interaction and community, while two bedrooms and two baths offer privacy for couples or families. Lots of windows and sliding doors allow you to enjoy the spectacular 180° ocean view, as well as the Waipio Valley and Maui in the distance. It is a serene place to relax, and a great base from which to explore the Big Island. Guidebooks are provided to speed you on your way.

Why Marcie Miller chose Hamakua Coast

We chose the Hamakua Coast because it gets just enough rain to be lush and green and enjoys lots of sun and amazing views. We chose to be near the Waipio Valley because we love the local people and their affinity for the 'aina, or land. For us, it is important to have our Hawaiian experience be one that honors both people and nature, and we fell in love with the true aloha spirit not always found in more populated areas.

What makes this house unique

Being on the northern tip of the Big Island, we enjoy the glorious colors at both sunrise and sunset. We love the spectacular views from nearly every room in our home, and learned to appreciate watching the changing colors of the ocean as the weather changes. The stars at night are spectacular!

Perfect Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Marcie has thought of everything! The house was so well stocked that there was nothing we could think of that was not supplied. From beach towels to bakeware and everything in between. Thank you so much for making our stay so comfortable and so easy. We hope to return some day.

Cozy home in Rural Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

I travelled to Hawaii alone with my two young boys (ages 7 and 9). It was a wonderful experience!!! This house became our home for a week as we took off each day exploring the Island. The view is amazing and we felt held in this cozy place! Very practical home; I was grateful for its cleanliness!!! I miss the sound of the frogs serenading us to sleep. Thank you so much for having this delightful place to offer. Mahalo!

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for peace and tranquility as well as a little adventure, this is the place to be. The view from the lanai is breathtaking. The home is very comfortable and it has absolutely everything you need. We were able to go the beach and have a great picnic with the cooler, beach chairs, and boogie boards provided by the homeowner. We went on several excursions and loved coming "home" and chillin. We loved hanging out with the locals in town too. The vibe in the nearby town was very laid back. Not many tourists. Don't miss visiting the Waipaio Valley nearby. It is within walking distance of the house. But get ready for the hike of your life. It is really intense! Your hike will be rewarded by the most beautiful area you've ever seen...waterfall, farms, and a black sand beach. You can also drive to it but you have to have 4 wheel drive. Best vacation ever!

Very nicely cared for home in a secluded location.

  • 5 of 5

This home is exceptionally well maintained. It is nicely stocked with with items to enhance your stay - maps, books, snorkeling equipment, buggy boards plus kitchen and bathroom supplies. Everything is in good working order and well thought out. The location is great if you want to be alway from the crowds. We had a great time and would highly recommend this home.

Splendid home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and found virtually everything we needed plus plenty of extras! This was a good home base for touring both sides of the island as well as Volcano and South Point. Waipi'o Valley was a little hard to access because of heavy rains - our trek on foot ended prematurely due to a crunched ankle - don't attempt that hill if it's wet! Luckily, I was blessed with walking stick someone left on the deck that helped me around for the rest week. We did make it down eventually by Jeep (4wd) and it was as beautiful as promised. We appreciated the excellently supplied kitchen and enjoyed fresh fruit smoothies every morning. Take advantage of the Farmers Markets in nearby Waimea! Nighttime can be a bit noisy with the frogs but no one had trouble sleeping. The trick is to wear yourself out during the day. This is a great place for anyone that wants to be away from the crowds and doesn't mind driving - I enjoy sightseeing so it was perfect for me. Our teens got a little bit of car fever, but those Kohala beaches are close enough to make up for it. It was a lovely vacation and I can honestly say the Hamakua Coast is my favorite part of the Big Island. We will be back!

Owner's Response: The Big Island is more than twice the size of all the other islands combined, and there's so much to see and do that no matter where you are on the island, you're gonna have to drive if you want to see everything! The good news is that it takes a really big storm to cover the whole island, so you can nearly always find sun somewhere! People who love a resort experience will love the views, but will miss the golf, tennis, pools and onsite restaurants of hotel properties, but those who value a taste of local life in a small town will find a home away from home!
