About this listing
Extremely peaceful and serene, this listing will have you catching your breath every minute of your stay. Sitting at the heels of the world renowned Hiʻilawe Falls, Noelani of Waipiʻo offers memorable views and experiences.
Experience the stay of a lifetime at Noelani of Waipi'o. Very few people get to stay in the majestic Waipiʻo Valley (in such comfort) and experience its magic, it's stunning beauty, and it's warm embrace. Long time Waipi'o residents have opened their home to travelers wanting to experience the land of their forefathers.
Located on the beautiful grounds of this family property directly in front of the breathtaking Hiʻilawe Falls, Noelani of Waipiʻo is simple Hawaiian living at it's finest. This home offers two bedrooms - one with a queen bed and the other with a full size bed, a living room with a view of Hiʻilawe Falls equipped with 2 comfortable couches, a twin bed, phone and generator power - something not to be taken for granted in the middle of the valley. Water supply can sometimes be challenging in the valley but not to worry there is water on the premises and your comfort and enjoyable stay is our concern. There are board games, puzzles, cards and books for hours of old time entertainment.
A fully equipped kitchenette and bathroom complete the upstairs rental. The old concrete stairs from the old family dwelling lead up to the new structure. This place is soaked in history and beauty.
The house is surrounded by an amazing garden complete with taro,
watercress and warabi/pako (fern) patches, a large manicured yard, a koi pond, bananas and other fruit trees. There is an outdoor shower and bathroom, and a wood burning grill in the back yard (wood is available on site). There is also a gas grill and 2 butane stoves.
There is no refrigerator but a large cooler is provided. Remember to pick up ice and food at Malama Market or one of the other stores in Honokaa before heading into the Valley. FYI, Noelani of Waipiʻo and the Valley in general, is completely off the grid. Do not expect modern development or infrastructure.
Just a few steps up the road is the river flowing down from Hiʻilawe Falls with its cold, clear water. It's a refreshing spot to take a dip and cool off after a hike through the valley.
