... br> Because we were flying on to New Zealand a day early, Heather, Dave and Zach took us out to the airport for our 7 pm flight to Honolulu, none of us realizing that the flight time had been changed to 8:35 pm; D & I were anxious, knowing that Air New Zealand only flies a couple of times a week out of Honolulu and we had to make our 10:30 pm flight...well, long story short, the plane out of ...
... eastern side of the island. it is an island of many contrasts - one minute in tropical jungle and the next on barren lava fields. We really like it much more than maui - it seems much more hawaiin and less American.

This trip today took us about an hour drive from our hotel. The first stop was to stop by Kona Boys to rent snorkeling equipment. The next stop was at Pu'uhonua o Honaunau. (Place of refuge) this is where natives who broke laws could redeem themselves. Nothing could hurt them here. After visiting this National ...

Further up, we passed a gentlemen hunched over and pushing himself up the hill. It was the first person we saw ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Aaah the Views Bed and Breakfast Kamuela
When we first arrived in the Stream Room, my four-year-old daughter climbed into the loft with its own windows and declared with a big smile, "I'll sleep up here." We stayed two days, and all loved it.
The Views has a great location in Waimea (aka Kamuela), which is about equidistant from both Kona and Hilo. Perfect spot for exploring the island. We stayed here 2 years ago in 2003 and came back because we liked the place so much last time. Derek and Erica run an excellent B&B, with clean, bright rooms, beautiful views, and as an added bonus, a delicious, fresh breakfast every morning.
Highly Recommend the Dream Room
We enjoyed our stay at the Dream Room, which boasts excellent views of the stream behind the house as well as Mauna Kea volcano off in the distance. Erica and Derek were superb hosts, as were little Joshua and Cameron -- we were glad to have them mingle with us and the other guests at breakfast each morning. The weather in Waimea/Kamuela can be erratic -- i.e., interesting -- given the B&B's location at the crossroad between the windward and leeward sides of the Big Island.
Wonderful place to stay
Aaaa The Views is a delightful bed and breakfast in Waimea, The Big Island, Hawaii. The views of Mauna Kea are excellent. The Dream Room, where we stayed, has a small, well-stocked kitchen, a jacuzzi, a small deck, and an outdoor 2-headed shower. The hosts are welcoming and unobtrusive. We wanted to just stay in our room and not explore--that's how nice it was. For a laid back, private, relaxed place from which to explore the northern shore of Hawaii, we thought Aaaah the Views was perfect.
We stayed at Aaah The Views for 4 nights towards the end of our honeymoon. We weren't quite sure what to expect, but were astonished by the quality of the Dream Room (or actually Dream Rooms - there's a bedroom, a kitchen and a HUGE bathroom). The pictures on the website really don't do it justice - the place is fabulous. The views are great, and the whole environment is so peaceful and relaxed - we wished we had booked for longer.
Our stay with Erika and Stuart and their family was great - we stayed in the Stream Room and were very comfortable and made to feel really at home. Breakfasts were delicious - papaya, pineapple, yogurt, bagels, great coffee, cookies, great conversations. We would stay with them again. Excellent location - 15 minutes from the best beach on the island.
A true Aloha experience
We stayed at the Stuart's Aaah the Views for 3 nights and we loved it. Not only is the breakfast great but the owners and their twins were wonderful. Even the guests who were there at the same time were very friendly and we learned so much about the Big Island before we set off on our own. Great views, wonderful owners and scrumptious breakfast made our stay there memorable and special. Thanks Stuart Family!!
Many thanks to Derek and Erica, our hosts at "Ahh The Views B&B", who have done a wonderful job re-doing this B&B. They were outstanding hosts, taking time to get to know each guest and offering excellent trip advice. The setting of the B&B was superb, as our room and breakfast areas both overlooked a mountain stream with views of the volcanoes in the background. The "Dream Suite" was lovely and spacious, with a large window seat which afforded gorgeous views. Thoughtful touches included a reading selection, stereo with cd's, and a natural wood trimmed bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and walk-out balcony. The gourmet continental breakfast was great. In summary, a super place with quality people resulting in an excellent experience. We wish we could have stayed another night.
My wife and I stayed in the "Stream Room" for two nights (November 4, 5, 2004) and we were very satisfied. The room was very clean and was just right - very warm and cozy. Breakfasts were great - although we couldn't begin to eat all the food that Derek prepared! Conversation was great - and we enjoyed every aspect of "Aaah the Views." It was quiet and peaceful and the new owners take great pride in both their hospitality and in their property. We hope to return! Alan & Jan Pfeuffer
What A Great Stay!
The new owners, Erica & Derek, are terrific! We were treated royally and stayed in the nicely appointed Dream Room. The room has a beautiful view of Mauna Kea and the stars (at night), a kitchen, huge & wonderful bath, and patio. Breakfasts consisted of wonderful local fare. The location of the this B&B was wonderful for us -- easy access to great beaches, hikes, historic sights, and out of the way of the tourist masses in Hilo and Kona.
