Holly greeted us when we arrived and showed us our lodging and her homestead. We were also introduced to Aila and they explained how they ran a self-sustaining homestead.
Wow! Wow! And wow! I want to be them! Absolutely stunningly beautiful place! Incredible! The view from the main building is phenomenal! Whales, whales and many more whales! Saw rainbows, saw seabirds, huge ships as I sipped my coffee. The breakfast was five stars! Eggs were yummy, fruit was succulent, coffee was delicious. I LOVED the toast! Our room was amazing. Skylight, TV, bathrobes, great furniture. The bed sheets were among the most comfortable I have ever slept on! The door to the room is a piece of art. Actually, the entire place is a functional art space. Holly and Eila have created living and working art as a home. Everything has thought behind it. Plants, trees, chickens, fish; everything has many purposes. Wonderful and inspiring hosts who truly love their spot in the universe. Their dogs and cats are great hosts, too! The dogs will make you smile with their antics! One evening I was stargazing and I heard both a whale spouting and a cow mooing within seconds of each other! That was cool! I also saw 6 feral piglets one morning, they ran away from me! Eila and the piglets are at odds with each other. If you stay here, ask her about the piglets!
The listing description is accurate. There is no "neighborhood" because this property is rural and a couple of miles from downtown Hawi. I felt very welcome because I was invited to use the main building and lanais in addition to the guest house accommodations.
We had a great experience at Holly and Eila's guesthouse. This really is an "eco-luxury" treat. It was really nice to meet Holly and Eila and their friendly dogs, cats, and chickens.
Even though this property is outside of town, is off-the-grid, and has beautiful ocean views, it's only a few minute drive from the town of Hawi. The town is surprisingly quaint, with some excellent cafes, restaurants, and galleries. We did the spectacular hike down to Pololu Valley - don't miss that! The more nothern Kohala beaches are also very accessible from here - just a 30 minute drive to Hapuna, Mona Kea, and Spencer Park beaches (same as from Kona). I definitely recommend a stay here.
Serene setting with expansive ocean view. Gracious, hospitable hosts who were eager to share ideas of things to see and do in exploring the area. Hosts share in a delicious breakfast.
We really enjoyed our stay with Holly and Eila. It is so interesting and inspiring to see how they are working to reclaim the land in this beautiful spot. They are generous and accomodating hosts, breakfast is delicious, and the room has one of the most comfortable beds I've experienced.
Our weeklong stay was lovely;
with gracious hospitality, Holly and Eila were wonderful hosts.
Conversations over an elegantly prepared breakfast were much
about the Big Island's history and charm. After breakfast one or
two little animals would accompany us as we whale watched from
the beautiful lanai; starting off a great day for another island
A perfect location in a beautiful setting; we hope to return again
next year. Highly recommended.
