The Lai Nani is an oceanfront estate on the Hamakua coast of the Big Island of Hawai'i. We offer a quiet, remote, botanical setting 20 minutes from Hilo. This is a private residence which offers 3 separate bungalow style villas with stunning ocean views. We create an environment for the traveler who wishes to experience Aloha without the tourist resort hype. This is quintessential hawaiian living.

Had we known how good this place is, we would have planned to stay longer. The property only takes a few guests at a time, so the facilities (pool etc) are not going to be crowded, which was a nice change after having just stayed...More
