"My family and I stayed here for 3 weeks. It is a lovely place about 30 mins from Hilo and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We really enjoyed the lush green landscape, sound of the coqui frogs at night and the proximity to a lot of great places. The inside was spacious and clean with comfortable beds. There are lots of farmers markets to shop and eat at all over the island as well as some good little restaurants in Pahoa (a couple favorites were Kaleo's for dinner and Pele's kitchen for breakfast). We had a wonderful stay here and would definitely recommend."

"We enjoyed our time here. Quiet, great star gazing, snorkelling in the pools, bike riding... this house is really nicely built and appointed. There's lots to explore nearby and volcano park is not far away nor the beautiful waterfalls and such north of hilo. It's a perfect spot for two."

"We chanced upon this Hale very last minute in our trip-planning and lucked out completely.
Only several blocks away from the ocean and amazing scenic drives at every turn. The Hale itself is spacious and offers cottage comfort. We slept a family of four, including our two small children, very comfortably with plenty of amenities (full kitchen, two full baths, washer/dryer, screened-in patio) to make us feel at home. Details such as a nightlight in the bathroom, weren't overlooked!
Short drives every day gave us plenty of local adventure. We never went further than an hour by car and filled our two week stay with new things to see every day. Locally, the small village of Pahoa has some fantastic, casual restaurants and we loved shopping at their Natural Foods Store for health food items we never expected to buy on an island! The Maku-U Market (held on Sunday's,despite old signage!) was one of our favourite local hang-outs with great prepared food, fresh local produce and misc vendors selling everything from home-made lai's to vintage clothing to tropical plants.
A bit tricky to find comfortable beaches with small children, but eventually we found many shallow tide pool parks before reaching Richardson Beach Park in Hilo. Along the strip to Richardson Beach Park, you have your choice of several ocean-side places to swim safely with children and enjoy colourful fish. Waterfalls are also easy trips for young and old; Akaka Falls being one of the most scenic with a well laid out path through the rainforest.
The best bonus of the trip is an accommodating, welcoming host who is most helpful and quick to respond to questions.
Absolutely, highly recommended for a fresh take on a Hawaiian vacation."
