Fodor's Review

A comfortable home with two detached guest suites, this 3-acre property in the Kohala Estates, above Kawaihae Harbor, lives up to the English translation of its name, "House of Relaxation." From its bluff above the ocean you can watch the sun rise over Mauna Kea and set over the Pacific, and view the sparkling beauty of Hawaii's night sky. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and the price is a steal at less than half the nightly rate of the Kohala resorts. Continental

breakfast is included. There's a two-night minimum; a $25 fee applies to single-night bookings made within seven days of arrival.
