About Anthony Stampfer
I am from England and have lived in the USA since 1983. My wife is from China and we have been together since 2003. We both love all the Hawaiian Islands, but have our hearts truly set with The Big Island of Hawaii, where we have spent many happy times since 2003. We give back to the local community and encourage others to. I used to be a teacher, am a musician of sorts (hobby), and love to read real books.
Anthony Stampfer purchased this House in 2016
Why Anthony Stampfer chose Honomu
This property stood out to us as a place with enormous potential. Our agent initially discouraged us from buying such a big place,(3200 sq ft and an acre ), due to the running costs. We had our hearts set on Honomu Place from the first glimpse. We have worked hard, and it's been a true labor of love, to make a vision become real. We wanted to have a tropical resort feel to our home, with rich and comfortable furnishings, to give a feeling of luxury and an ambiance of serenity. We have achieved this and all our previous guests have given us five star reviews, ( sorry, on different website ) we are new to Homeaway. Our strength is in the quality of the home, with gorgeous pool, jacuzzi, slde etc, and in the warm special Aloha welcome each guest receives upon arriving. The surrounding area is one of the most classically beautiful in all the Hawaiian Islands. Close by are waterfalls, scenic drives, palm forests, Rain forest, Zip line, breath taking views, swimming parks, and all the shopping places you could want.
What makes this House unique
The home itself is comfortable and every area has a unique cared for ambiance that radiates welcome, relax, sit and be happy and calm here. Our pool has a water slide and adjoining sand paddle pool and hot tub ( jacuzzi ). Our garden has 8 kinds of edible tropical fruit and tropical flowers and trees. We have ocean views. We are world travelers and we know exactly how it feels to receive a kind, generous, thoughtful, embracing welcome. We go out of our way to ensure our guests have a unique and memorable vacation. We pretty well make CERTAIN it happens !!!

Fun for the Whole Family!
Large property with huge lawn, fantastic pool and slide, and lots of seating areas. The kids had a blast and we found lots of little road-side cafes with smoothies and local Hawaiian eats. A great way to spend our time in Hilo.
Thank you and you will always be welcome to return. Our greatest pleasure is in seeing our guests enjoy Honomu Place and the surrounding areas
Everything was comfortable and clean, the owner and everyone who checked up on us was incredibly helpful and kept in contact just to make sure my family and I had everything we needed. The entire trip was perfect thanks to our accommodations. I hope we can stay here once again, thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!
Quality experience, quality care, fabulous owners and communication, our group had a fantastic vacation. I highly recommend this property!
Fun for everyone
We had a large group with small kids, teens, parents, and grandparents. This house was supplied to accommodate us all! We loved the pool area and water slide! There were fruit trees in the yard and the house is only a short walk away from Mr. Ed’s bakery (amazing jams/jellies!).
This guest party stand out as one of the exceptional ones ! talk about clean and respectful ! My housekeeper was lost for words to describe how neat and clean they left every room. We certainly hope they return. We enjoyed every bit of our interaction with these lovely people
Nice perch down the road from Akaka Falls
We went to Hakalau for Akiko's annual mochi pounding to cheer in the new year, and were happy to find this spacious, well appointed house just two miles away. While we didn't use the water slide and other unexpected outdoor amusements, we really enjoyed the quality of light upstairs and the comfortable perch. Also well situated for a hop over to Akaka Falls, a drive north to see the enchanted Waipio Valley, or a short, pleasant drive to Hilo for a meal or a stroll.
Thank you Elena. We hope you return

Absolutely loved this house and grounds. Was met by Susan and she went over how to work the pool and other things. The main reason I rented this house was my 3 1/2 year old and 15 year old grand daughters picked out this house when I was looking to book and the pool was so worth it!! Tony even called to check on us the next morning. They really go beyond what most rentals do, bottle of wine waiting and the girls receive Hawaiian flower barrette. The only negative is it says the home has ac, it does not. Normally it would be a big issue with my health but the lower level with fan was ok. I would definitely book this house again. Thank you Tony and Susan!!
Sharon and her party were superb guests, and we would be delighted to host them again any time
Honomu is in the Hilo Hamakua Heritage Coast area and is very close to the best of the East ( wet and lush tropical ) side if Hawaii. A variety of restaurants, Thia, Local, Chinese, Mexican, Indian, Philipino, USA, steak and seafood etc are all to be found within a 30 minute drive ....we can make recommendations .....the best Zip line is a walk away...Akaka Falls a five minute drive.....The most astounding and extensive tropical gardens is a ten minute drive away along one of the world's most breath taking scenic routes.............Drive for just under an hour and you are in Volcano National Park...you can see rock formed billions of years ago AND weeks ago ! Travel a bit further West and ascend Mauna Kea ( almost 14,000 ft Mountain...snow, star gazing, hot chocolate...a unique experience
