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.

The space

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.

Noelani of Waipiʻo is a special place, perfect for the adventurous family! We were comfortable, enjoyed being off the grid, and loved 4WDing down into the valley for some seclusion and relaxation. We walked all around the area, spent a day at the beach with wild horses, laid in the yard and looked at the stars, and just enjoyed the feeling of this well-loved family home. Our hosts were warm and welcoming, and we loved every moment of the experience. Thank you!

This place was amazing and the hosts were friendly. The sounds in the valley at night are just incredible. If you stay here consider spending time hiking on the Muliwai trail.

A great off grid place! About a 5 minute jeep ride to the beach, which may be one of my favorite beaches ever. Make sure you have a 4x4 to get there. The view from the place is amazing. The wild horses in the valley love to be fed fruit, which was a very cool experience. The house is in more of a neighborhood than we expected. Jolene, the property owner was super friendly and helpful when we picked up the key. The locals in the valley aren't very friendly which is such a shame. The hike to the waterfall says closed / private property so we were disappointed in not getting to hike it. We would recommend Micah's place, especially because we love off grid, just make sure you're into it. We used the generator maybe twice real quick. And enjoyed the outdoor shower as well! Thanks again Micah and Jolene! Thumbs up!!
