                        My wife and I spent a month at the Green Flash Ohana and just now returned home. The listing is accurate regarding the location and amenities. The room was as described, clean and well maintained. The owner was always available for questions and/or concerns. Weather was cool and right in the hub of where we needed to be. 15 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes to town for shopping and restaurants. Hilo is 55 minutes and Kona is 45 minutes, Hawi is 20 minutes. Roads are in good shape and people are very friendly over the whole of the island. We flew into Hilo and rented a car for our stay. The driving directions were very good. This is a clean, neat and nice place to stay in, and we can recommend this property for your stay. We were not disappointed and you should have a great time here. We shopped online, and this was the best place we found for the money and the amenities. It has the Aloha spirit. Diane and Fred
