I was amazed at how well I slept there, it was so peaceful and is located close to so many parts of the island, whether you're going to the beaches, the volcano or Waipio Valley - its all within a short drive. This is definately the place to stay on the Big Island and we will go back and stay here on our next vacation for sure. What a great time, the caretakers were very helpful and pleasant. It made all for the best vacation we have ever had. Thank you!”

  • “We’re now back a few days, but I already looked over our photos from the Pu’uhonua House many times, as well as gone back to this website to remain in the house a little longer. If I say that we loved staying there, the words simply do not capture our pleasure. I can’t remember when I slept so well as in the Pu’uhonua House – for one solid week. Everything about it, the setting, the lush and beautiful vegetation, the architecture and the wood frame, the attractive furnishings, the light, constant fresh air, the birds, lizards, pheasants and so much more created a sense of paradise. Indeed, I’d love nothing more than to make this experience into an annual trip, except I would change the name to House of Paradise.”
