The promotion on this one did not exaggerate. The view looking over the ocean was spectacular. I'm a big fan of relaxing, watching the ocean, and listening to nature. When I wasn't seeking shopping, waterfalls, and snorkeling opportunities, I was sitting on the deck enjoying the view and sounds.

This was the last part of our two island trip and we were in need of this break from the grueling hikes and long drives. Waipio Glass House offered the perfect end to our trip.

This house has a wonderful lanai where you can sit and watch the ocean while you eat your meals. You are a short drive into a historic village and a longer drive into Waimeao and Hilo for dinners out.

Fantastic place with homely feel and very comfortable. Spectacular views from the balcony, very clean and well equipped.

This guest house offers a beautiful view, complete with ocean background, some forest and field, horses and geckos! We really enjoyed being able to relax and unwind on the deck after a day of activities!

The views from this house and the proximity to Waipio Valley (and Holoka'a) are exceptional. The beds are comfortable, kitchen functional and tidy, everything was clean and well appointed. Internet worked great, we did yoga and ate breakfast on the contactless check in and check out worked flawlessly and when I needed the support of the management company they were quick to respond, friendly and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the nearby fruitstands between the house and Holoka'a. One note to other visitors, though it looks like there is expansive yard space from the pictures, that is an illusion, the space behind the house belongs to a neighboring property and is fenced off. The tiny yard space that belongs to Glass House is the territory of some intense spiders and webs and mosquitos that make it pretty uninviting. The geckos and clean upkeep seem to have kept them out of the house, thank fully. With Waipio Valley closed to visitors, we were really at a loss to find a hike or a walk nearby, it seemed like we were surrounded by private property. This is also a long way from beaches, I would not consider this a great launch point for a beach vacation. It was, however, a good spot to see a different side of Hawaii than what is offered at the resorts. From here we went to Waimea several times (Merriman's Restaurant is worth more than one visit if you have time and $ and you are a foodie!), to the gorgeous botanical gardens, to Akaka Falls. All in all we had a lovely stay and this served as a spotless, comfortable home base for the non-beach focused portion of our trip.
