I stayed here with my son and daughter in law The lay out of the house provided for privacy but also allowed together time. The grounds are beautiful we only stayed a week I wish I had longer. The house is nicely located close to hot springs and black sand beach we were there to attend my other sons wedding This was the perfect spot"

  • We'll be Back!

    "Ok, if you're in a soulful place and have $155 per night to spend, look no further. The accommodations and the location are an unstoppable pairing on the "Hilo" side of the Big Island. The house (you get the entire second floor) nestles up to the lava field that borders a spectacular ocean front. To walk the lava field and spend time at the water's edge is some of the most profound meditative time one can spend in nature. It's simply spectacular. The duplex is luxurious, private and offers an inviting lap for personal growth ... from the deep and wide library of teachers to the awesome art and talisman objects. As others have stated, it is conveniently close to many sites, restaurants and activities. The only caution I would offer is to those who have difficulty walking stairs as there are 15 steps leading to the apartment. Also, the king size bed stands about 4 feet off the floor and commands a kind of climbing, jumping or shimmying up onto it. No kidding. Once you're in it, it's very comfortable but it takes a certain kind of "spry-ness" to negotiate. For our tastes we found Bali Temple an ideal fit."

  • Second Stay as Great as the First

    "If you've never been to an Hawaiian island before, know that this one, particularly this east side of the Big Island is about witnessing earth's dynamic of new land forming and finding fantastic enclaves, not only of tropical vegetation, but settlements on a frontier of sorts, like the very cool and modern architecture of Robert Trickey's house amidst a 1955 lava flow. This was our second visit to Robert's house and a stay in his guest house proved, once again, to be really wonderful. It was pleasant to see that not much has changed since our prior visit in 2005(?). That trip of two weeks gave us ample time to really explore and understand much about the Big Island. As a result, this trip returning to a familiar spot had its advantages - less time running about, more time to simply relax and do nothing. We did of course enjoy catching some morning rays and brave the waves on good swim days at nearby Kehena beach. It's a 15 min walk from the house. Swimming there is a challenge as the bold surf makes getting in and out of the water difficult, but once beyond the wave-breaks and having learned that timing is everything, the depth and clarity of the water is astonishing. If you time it right you might swim with dolphins, though for us they proved elusive on both our trips. Almost everyday we walked the neighborhood for exercise, mornings and evenings. If you loop back and forth covering every road in the development it's about a mile-and-a-half. Often we'd extend the routine with a trek across the main road and through some wooded land to watch the sea while doing some body stretching on the bluff under the Ironwoods . Returning back to the guesthouse a cool plunge in the pool was always welcome. Robert's sweet dogs, Epoe and Aka, were always happy to see us. We read books, reclined on the couch with lanai sliders wide open, stared out at the lunar-like landscape of the lava from the main lanai, and enjoyed everything about Hawaii's fantastic climate, no matter what was going on with the weather. We missed Robert this trip as he was on the mainland, but all the special arrangements he made for us were handled graciously by Jim, a super-nice guy and friend in charge. Mahalo, Jim, ...Mahalo, Robert! We cherish our wonderful memories of times spent with you and your place in Puna Palisades."
