I loved everything about this place.

  • 4 of 5
It was my husband and my first time in Hawaii. Iki Hono was the perfect experience for our first trip together. We loved the jacuzzi and the lovely ocean view from the bed. This was a lovely place to stay. We will def come back.

Not as advertised

  • 3 of 5
This is a lovely area with snorkeling galore. The problem I experienced during my stay was one of timing and communication. A hurricane hit in August, directly impacting this property and the surrounding neighborhood. We were not advised of this until weeks later when we were already on our way to Hawaii. The photos that still accompany this posting (as of the date of this review) are pre-hurricane. Travelers should be aware that as of last week there is little foliage, incomplete fencing, and complete exposure to the street.

I had booked this home as a quiet, romantic retreat for the second half of my honeymoon and was looking forward to the experience based upon the many wonderful reviews of the property. The owner first contacted us about the situation a few days before our arrival, and we were told the fencing, jacuzzi, and washer/dryer had been swept away but that it was being addressed and new fencing had been erected for our privacy. At my request, I was offered a discount to compensate for the lack of jacuzzi. Upon arrival, I was deeply surprised by what we found. The neighborhood was under guard, with streets closed to all but local residents. The landscaping on this property was totally destroyed, and privacy fencing had NOT been fully erected. While we were there, construction on damaged properties in the neighborhood started at 7:30 am, including the weekend. Between the noise and lack of privacy, we felt completely exposed and had no desire to spend any time at the house. Just one block away, many homes survived the storm with landscaping intact and the neighborhoods quiet and serene. At $130/night, this listing is terribly overpriced given the current situation. When I advised the owner of my surprise and concerns upon arrival, I was told it used to look a lot worse and they had done their best. I was offered a discount on my NEXT stay, but this offer felt like an empty gesture. The owner was aware this was our honeymoon. Like many couples on a budget, we are unlikely to take another trip like this for many years to come. I feel for this community, and we would most likely still have come if the full scope of the situation had been disclosed from the outset. However, not knowing the full reality set us up for nothing but disappointment and frustration. To be fair, once fencing and foliage returns I believe this will be a nice place to stay once again - a cheerful modern home with nice amenities located very close to the tidal pools.

Owner's Response: This is the owner response. Hurricane Iselle hit Vacationland on August 7th. The power was not restored until August 20th. The whole neighborhood was in the stage of cleaning up. No outsiders were allowed to the tide-pool. I told my guests about the situation of my house. The living area up high was not damaged. I told them about the Jacuzzi and laundry room were washed away by the strong wave. I restored the front gate before this guest arrived. The fences around the property were temporary fixed. Washer & dryer were installed. New Jacuzzi
arrived on 9/30/14. I will put in more plants and my house should look the same as before or better.

Excellent Snorkeling Place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 4 days and fell in love with the place. Location is great, just across the street from the tidepools. The cottage is very clean,kitchen is well stocked with cooking gear and condiments, the gas grill was a plus. Greatly appreciated the snorkel gear,mats and coolers,beach towels that were available for use. The bed was very comfortable. The nights were serenaded by birds,frogs etc.Just loved it. Snorkeling here was SOOOOOOO much better than the Na Pali Coast in Kauai . Highly recommend IKI HONU.

A Gem in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Iki Honu for 4 days while on our honeymoon this past May. It was absolutely delightful! The cottage was extremely clean, well cared for, stocked with every possible necessity, and a great location! It was right across the street from the beautiful tidepools, which were a blast to snorkel at! We LOVED Iki Honu, and would definitely return to visit again! We definitely recommend it as a wonderful place to vacation at! :)

Iki Kono

Our first time to the Hilo side. It was great for snorkeling and relaxing. We are an older couple and did not take advantage of all the house had to offer, but we found everything and more for a relaxing and peaceful time.

We loved the snorkeling, the lovely setting, and the birds and frogs. It is a very relaxing location and close to the tide pools. We hope to return soon.
