Aloha and welcome to Honomū Haven! Our two story home is located in the quaint town of Honomū, just 13 miles north of Hilo, on the Big Island of Hawaii. This 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1.5 kitchen home was recently meticulously restored and renovated by the owner, a builder trained in Historic Preservation. Special care was taken to maintain the comfort and craftsmanship synonymous with a sugar plantation era home, while upgrading the conveniences expected in today's dwellings. Regular trade-winds blow clean air through the home, allowing guests to relax and enjoy the perfect temperatures that travelers seek on a trip to Hawaii. Honomū town is a classic streetscape with cute shops of all kinds within a one minute walk of Honomū Haven. Local shops include Mr. Ed's Bakery, Shark's Coffee & Cafe, Glass from the Past Antiques, Woodshop Art Gallery & Cafe, Purple Eye Boutique, Jan's Grocery Store, and Skyline Adventure Zipline. Honomū is also the gateway to Akaka Falls State Park where you can take a short walk through the tropical rainforest and view the cascading Akaka & Kahuna Waterfalls. Come and enjoy the lush, clean, safe, and laid back Hāmākua Coast.
Honomū Haven is nestled quietly at the end of town (no through traffic) surrounded by beautiful churches of all denominations and a few houses with nice neighbors. This home is across the street from Honomū Park which has a gym, open to the public, containing a basketball court, ping pong table, billiards and a weight room. Honomū park also has expansive fields and a playground. The sleepy "city" of Hilo is conveniently just 15 minutes away, where all shopping, medical, banking, gas, dining, etc. needs may be met. The Hilo airport is an easy 25 minute drive away.
You will find upon visiting that the house is clean, spacious and comfortable, perched on a manicured yard populated with delicious fruit trees, herbs and ornamentals including roses and orchids, plus many other tropical plants. The smells and sounds of Hawaii's flora and fauna will surround you at all times. Inside the home there are 5 bedrooms. Four of which have comfortable queen beds while one bedroom has two twins, allowing for a total of ten guests. Honomū Haven is conveniently equipped to handle two families, as the quarters are basically equal on both floors. There are two bedrooms on the first floor, a full kitchen, a brand new beautifully tiled full bathroom, and living room. Head upstairs to the second floor and you will find three bedrooms (one with twins), a kitchenette, full bathroom with a bathtub and two sinks, living room, a balcony overlooking the front yard, and a screened in patio in the back with a view of the backyard and the ocean in the distance. In the front of the house there is a carport and driveway with space for two cars. Other amenities include: washer and dryer, cable and WiFi, charcoal grill, sporting equipment and a piano, for the musically inclined.
*Please note: this is an older home and the water pressure may not be what is expected in more modern dwellings. We have worked very hard over the past two years to remodel and update every part of this house that we can to make it comfortable for our guests, however there is a limit as to what we can do to increase the water pressure. Please be advised that the water pressure may not be as strong if you use both showers at the same time.*
Honomū Haven is locally owned and managed, so additional items of interest and recommendations of activities are available upon request.
We hope you will choose Honomū Haven for your next stay on the magnificent Big Island. Aloha!
