Unique "old Hawaiian"style hideaway



Bobi, Kohala Country Haven
For 40 years I've loved living in awesome North Kohala, fell in love with my special property when I first saw it in 1974, raised 3 children "roughing it" but loving adventures in a rural community, adopted 6 and fostered 7, taught school as a sub, K-12 ,painted landscapes in oil around the island before the family expanded to 9+ diverse kids, now want to resume my passion for creativity, hosted many musicians and folks interested in sustainable living, healthy choices,loving each other, God and country, and appreciation for our uniquely wonderful treasures here at the end of the rainbow.

  • "Bobi is the most welcoming and helpful host. She bent over backward to provide anything we needed to make our 1-month stay more comfortable and enjoyable"

    Jon, New York

  • " Bobi was a very welcoming and accommodating host. The room was very clean and bright."

    Sam, Hawaii

  • "Bobi's Cozy Bedroom was just what I needed. If you're going to be out and about all day and just need a place to sleep, give it a try. If you're the laid-back type and just want to soak up Hawaiian sun, she has two other lovely spaces."


  • "Bobi's place is easy to get to and very convenient. The rooms are well decorated and very clean. Bobi was there to welcomed us. She booked a dinner for us at the local restaurant. Love her dogs and the horses."


  • We were lucky to get the 'honeymoon suite' at Bobis house, a very nice studio, where we spend one night. Her garden is also very impressive. Bobi was very helpful and nice and gave us many new informations for our further tour. We hope we may come back again one day.

  • My stay on the Big Island was an amazing adventure capped off the hospitality Bobi provided to me. I stayed in the "honeymoon suite." It was very clean and private. Next time I'll stay longer!!


  • Bobi's place is really gorgeous. North Kohala is a beautiful slice of the Earth, and her property has lovely views all around (I'd actually say the current photos don't do the place justice). Bobi herself was very sweet and accommodating.


  • Bobi made us feel welcome long before we arrived, even offering to provide a sunset forecast (the views from her deck are spectacular) if desired. This space had so much personality and charm I wanted to stay much much longer. You'll have no regrets spending a little bit of time with Bobi at Kapaau.


  • Bobi was a very welcoming and helpful host. It was easy to communicate with her before and during the visit and her suggestions for restaurants were outstanding. The place is very comfortable and there are gorgeous views from the bedroom and patio. We had a great visit in a wonderful place at a great location.


  • Bobi's place is an authentic piece of paradise in the coolest part of the island of Hawai'i. I'm a repeat guest, and I will make it a point to stay here whenever I am on the island. There are several lodgings on the property, they're all clean, cozy (in some cases luxurious,) and decorated with original art (Bobi is a talented painter and a gracious host.) Highly recommended!


  • The fact that we returned to Bobi's place kind of speaks for itself, right? Panoramic views offers more than we needed, but the real treat is Bobi! She's more than a host, she's your friend, not only offering all sorts of local information on restaurants and beaches, simply being kind and generous with her time. Loved it (again)!


  • We had a wonderful experience at Bobi's. The first night the room didn't end up being available but Bobi took us into her own house and treated us like family! The next night she upgraded us to a better room. Everything was spotless and the grounds were beautiful. Overall this was a fantastic place!


  • We enjoyed the quiet setting and beautiful deck for stargazing and relaxing. Bobi was available and helpful with suggestions for activities both local and other areas on the island.


  • Very nice accommodation for a family in a relaxing environment. Perfect location to enjoy the amazing Pololu Valley (close enough to wake up early and watch the sun rise).


  • Bobi's cozy bedroom adventures' is a wonderful place to stay for those on the go in the Big Island. My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay in Kapaau. We seen so many amazing scenic views just driving around. Bobi is an exceptional host with a wealth of knowlege of the Island.


  • I absolutely adore Bobbi and her beautiful property and home. I originally only planned on staying a couple days, but I loved it so much that I returned the following week with my family and we stayed another week. The town of Kapaau is so charming and friendly, close to some of the best beaches and offers plenty of other close by outdoor activities. I'd highly recommend staying here. In fact, if your staying on the Big Island, it's a must!
