No better view, and great central location.

Guestbook comments from the manager

From the minute we drove up to the house we were in love. As you pull into the driveway you have a spectacular view of the waipio valley and it only gets better when you get into the house. The house is fantastic, nothing has been overlooked. The lanai is the place to relax, enjoy the view and listen to the surf, although you can do this from inside as well. The furnishings were first class. The master bedroom is huge, the bed was super comfortable, and the sliders to the lanai (with great outdoor shower) was perfect. The master also has a huge walk in closet and bath with jacuzzi tub. The main part of the house was very warm ,with dining, living and kitchen(fully stocked) all in one area - plenty of room. As there were only 2 of us we didn't even go into the other wing, but the rooms were all large and nicely appointed. Everything is new and I can't say enough about how nice this house is and how much we felt at home there. There is also a great in-law suite downstairs. Ron - the property manager, was available for our few questions. Thanks Ron! The town of honokaa has a nice grocery store,gas stations, restaurants, and shops to poke around in, about 10-15min. drive. Lastly, the biggest draw for this home is the valley itself. It is truly a sacred place. I never tired of looking at the view - you can see from all over the house. You can explore by walking down, or driving if you dare. If you have a chance, stay in this house, you'll be happy you did.

Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, adventure seekers.

Notes:
Located on the northern Hamakua Coast, the sacred Waipio Valley was the boyhood home of King Kamehameha I, and an important center for political and religious life in Hawaii. Not only is 'The Valley of the Kings' an important site for Hawaiian history and culture, it's also a place of dramatic tropical beauty. This fertile valley is about one mile across and over five-miles deep, and surrounded by cliffs up to 2000-feet high. Waipio Valley was once the home of thousands of Native Hawaiians. Today, there are less than 100 residents living amongst the waterfalls, taro fields and rivers permeating the valley. Hawaii Island's tallest waterfall, Hiilawe Falls cascades down 1,300 feet in the back of Waipio. You can view the valley from the coastal Waipio Valley Overlook at the end of the Hamakua Heritage Corridor drive, or you can take a guided van tour, hike, or horseback ride to explore the hidden wonders within.

What an amazing view. Stunning, just as it shows in the pictures along with the peace and tranquility found there. My wife and I just returned and found it was everything it was billed to be. Having seen the short you tube video link we were given we went right to the home. The home was very clean and had more kitchen utinsels/cookware than most other places we have stayed in. The BBQ grill was very clean and ready to use so we grilled steaks one evening and ate on the deck then and some mornings for breakfast as well. We saw whales and other marine life quite often from the deck. They had binoculars there to use. We hiked the steep paved road just below the home quite often for exercise and drove it in the jeep as well. We even hiked across the valley and on top of the other ridge opposite us. It was a great hike and did not see many people on the hike, (it was fairly steep) but safe. If you need beach the black sand beach is right below and accessible. The place is green and lush and very secluded which is what we were after. The location is up north but we did not feel that it was to long a drive to the Hilo or Kona side to see the volcano and other sites and at the end of the trip felt like we woke up and went to bed in one of the prettiest places on the island. Daniel promptly replied to all our inquiries and the home was great! I would recommend it, and particularly for families or larger groups.

Great house, gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

This house is clean, comfortable, well stocked (including beach umbrellas!), quiet, and has a view of one of the most beautiful spots on the big island.

Please know it is isolated and a 30 min drive to Waimea. We enjoyed the drive - it was beautiful paaaing the fields and farm animals.

It is also on the wet side. We had fantastic weather but it can rain every day. It is also in a jungle. There are frogs that sing every night which we loved but certainly made a background noise. There are also centipedes and mosquitos- both managed fairly easily.

I really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone. The owner was great to work with.

The outdoor shower is divine!

Unique Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

After I got married here a year and a half ago, I find myself searching for reasons to return. This time I shared the beauty of the home and spectacular view of Waipio with my associates for our Annual Christmas appreciation event, I hope to continue returning.

Mahalo!!!

All that

  • 5 of 5

What a great house. The first thing you see is a fabulous view. Then as you explore the house it is amazing. It has a lot of space. We had plenty of room for our group. I especially loved the outdoor shower. How cool - taking a shower enjoying the sound of the waves and the open air view of the ocean. The porch is perfect - lots of seating and a hammock. The plants around the house are very lush - we picked some avocados, limes and passion fruit. Highly recommend. I really enjoyed the bag of pancake mix and syrup. It was raining one day and we decided to stay in and the pancakes made it possible - nice touch.

1 Miles
Black Sand Beach, Waipio Valley < 1

You can find some additional info about the area at dannat.net/waipio. An intro video shows how easy it is to get to the house.

There are two different horseback groups in the valley and both go through streams and are more relaxed and free with your use of the horses. A favorite of my girls.

There are boggy boards and a surfboard if you want to try the waves, an intermediate wave beach but favorite of locals.

Local guided tours of the valley can be arranged. Multiple trails so be sure and bring your hiking shoes, water shoes.
