“The view, the location, the atmosphere... Hawaii at it's best!!!”

Pu'uhonua House - Place of Refuge has a special place in our hearts. You cannot spend a day here without being touched by the beauty surrounding this amazing place. The house literally springs up out of a lush green rain forest of flowers, coffee and many various fruit trees. At the top level of the house you are looking down on the forest and out on the ocean, or over to the mountains. The sunsets are breathtaking.
Close by, is town, beaches, snorkeling, hiking, restaurants, and shopping. No shortage of things to do.
The house is very well maintained and the owners are nearby and extremely helpful with any needs. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who does not mind climbing stairs and loves a great view!

“Adult family reunion”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 for a stay in July 2013

After announcing our return to the big island for the third time our extended families decided to join us and we decided to branch out from our normal and searched the web to find the Pu'uhonua House. It was a great find! We filled the house with laughter and stories as our family was together again for the first time in years. The views are amazing, the openness of the main level with the sliding glass panels, and the hospitality of Dan W are second to none. Dan is very helpful and knowledgable of the who, what, and where of the big island. We couldn't thank him enough.
Kitchen is very well equipped, bathrooms are nice and clean. The only downside is the steep driveway and lack of outdoor shower but that's just being way too picky. Those two cons are easily swept away when you stand on the roof (yes, roof) and watch the sunset.
