This may be a little distance from the airport, however considering that you will need a car to make the most of the island anyway, it's definitely worth the drive. Fantastic location, with a great view down to the sea, shops and restaurants nearby whilst feeling incredibly private once back at the house. The feeling of immersion in the rainforest here is fantastic and the soundtrack that you get to fall asleep to and wake up to are unlike anything I've ever experienced, it's incredible! Really great value for money, fantastic location, super easy check in/out - stop looking, you've found the right place to stay!

This lovely home is ideally located: a 5 minute walk to delicious locally sourced meals at a variety of restaurants; centrally located for drives to amazing views and beautiful beaches. The house is on a quiet residential street. It was was such a blessing to be able to visit the local farmers' market on Sunday, buy local beef in Honoka'a, cook it up on the grill Patricia provides, and enjoy it all in the backyard of this sweet home away from home. We hope to return soon and enjoy it all again!

Patricia's place was everything we could have hoped for. Charming and well appointed. Close to Honoka'a town and just perfect for my daughter and my's stay during a friend's wedding in the Waipio Valley. What a beautiful part of the Big Island and so grateful that she could share it with us.
