Amazing place and very helpful guide in Sukumar to get to the remote location!
One word, breathtaking, that's how I describe this place! It is absolute beautiful and serene. This is the Hawaii I love, away from the tourist traps, surrounded by nature and beauty! Looking for a beautiful getaway? This is the spot for you!!!
We enjoyed our stay at the beautiful botanical garden retreat. It was so fun picking fresh fruit right outside the door for breakfast and snacks.
It is remote and very quiet, which makes it one of our favorite get a ways.
Thank you for sharing this tropical paradise!!!
This was a once-in-a-lifetime vacation for me and my whole family, in this beautiful location. The two gorgeous houses easily accommodated eight adults and three small children. The botanical gardens are not only beautiful, but filled with delicious fruits to eat everyday. Our host, John, is an amazing person, who helped us in every way possible and showed sincere interest in us and our adventures. He brought us fruits, shared interesting historical and scientific facts with us, which made our stay so much more meaningful. I highly recommend this vacation accommodation to anyone wanting to explore the beauty of this paradise on Earth.
As we rode through Waipio Valley we felt that we were experiencing a very spiritual and ancient place, one that had kept its original beauty and peacefulness. The lush gardens of the property were beautiful, full of flowers and fruits. It's a magical place, where you can relax and commune with nature. The accommodations were excellent, meeting our every need and exceeding our expectations. The 5 of us, two couples and a girl friend walked along the marked trail to the water fall and swam in the pool one day and the next we walked through the Valley to the black sand beach. Our guide and property caretaker was very informative and shared many stories of the Hawaiian people and the history of the Valley. I have already recommended it to friends and would return to step back in time. People of all ages would enjoy a stay here.
What a pleasant experience. Celebrating engagements, birthdays, friendship, and love to oneness. This garden is a special place in each of our hearts. Give thanks, do good, practice yoga self love and compassion. Mahalo for the beautiful time & stories. Lots of tasty foods were made i that kitchen.
Waipio Valley is a sanctuary of Hawaii tradition with taro patches, indigenous fauna and flora, and an occasional greeting from one of the gentle wild horses that roam the valley. With a 20 minute walk to the black sand beach through lush rainforest, 5 minute walk to waterfall pools for swimming, or hiking the switchback trails up the majestic cliff side, there is adventure around every corner.
