REVIEWS FROM HAPPY GUESTS

Madeleine B. said...This place is truly a sanctuary. It is gorgeous, with windows across the entire wall overlooking the gardens and ocean. Beautiful accommodations for our family reunion. We enjoyed the large, nicely furnished great room, kitchen/dining room and the wonderful lanai for enjoying the outdoor living space. with table and outdoor furniture for eating and relaxing. We actually spent one day being at the house as it was a vacation all in itself! We were taken care of very well with fresh eggs and vegetables right from their organic gardens. Will be back to this garden sanctuary!!

Pat S. said...This beautiful, peaceful property was the perfect place for my family of four over the New Year's holiday. We rented the entire home for 4 days and found it to be even better than the listing description. Immaculate and lovingly cared for, this is indeed a sanctuary. The reservation process was straightforward and Dr. Liebmann and his wife Natalie made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We especially enjoyed touring their 10 acre organic farm with him and learning about the healing plants they grew and their delicious organic produce. The bedrooms and living area were spacious and the kitchen was exceptionally well-equipped. Perched on the tip of the north Kohala coast, this property had spectacular views of Maui's Haleakala volcano wreathed in clouds rising out of the ocean. Since this was the first visit to North Kohala for 3 of us, we drove to beaches and resorts along the Kawaihae coast all the way to Kona one day, visited Waimea another day and explored charming Hawi on the third day. We planned an evening departure on our last day and drove south of Hilo to visit Madame Pele in her home at Halemaumau Crater before flying back to Honolulu. The Jagger Museum is a must-see for anyone interested in volcanoes. We arrived and departed from Hilo rather than Kona. Hawi is almost equidistant from the two airports and I found rental cars to be much less expensive in Hilo. The driving distances can be long because of the massive size of Hawaii Island but the scenery that unfolds is unlike anywhere in Hawaii, especially on the drive from Waimea to Hawi. The lush green rolling pastures of the Parker Ranch and the peaks of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa were mesmerizing. No photograph could capture the vastness of the beauty, but we tried! Our family looks forward to our next visit to Lokahi Garden Sanctuary and we all recommend it highly.

Jennifer P said: My two adult children, their spouses, and our 2 and 1/2 year old just spent a week at Richard and Natalie's lovely serene home. It was perfect for us. The master bedroom is at one end of the house so we put the family with the baby there. They had their own bathroom and privacy. The house itself was way beyond my expectations. It was also well equipped for what we wanted to do which was relax, cook, explore, surf and beach. The hammock stretched between two lanai poles overlooking the organic farm and beautiful Pacific became the focal point for afternoon story time and early sunset watching. The house has no TV which suited us just fine, but excellent internet for those who needed to retreat for a bit of work or who may have wanted to watch late night movies in their rooms.We thoroughly enjoyed talking to Richard and Co. You will need a car to surf or beach, but there are endless lovely spots to be discovered. As mentioned by others, Hawi is a darling town with several really good places to eat and friendly folks. But is not like many "touristy" towns on other islands, at least it was not in early November. The short 20+ minute drive to Waimea, is breathtaking as was almost every place we visited. There's a great kid park there for little kids, and Merrimans is a great place for farm/table food. If you get tired of the country (which we didn't) there are lovely resort hotels just a short drive away. We found fresh fish markets, vegetable and fruit stands, and the kona airport is a dream compared to LAX. Also many local beaches in coves for little kids with small waves and surf beaches for big kids with big waves. In short I can't say enough. Mahalo Richard and Natalie. We would definitely return.
