Great hosts and jungle like feel!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment above the owners who think of everything to make your stay enjoyable. They had fresh fruit for us and gave us lots of ideas of places to eat at and visit. The location is great for exploring the volcano np (20 min. Drive). Lots to do on this side of the island wish we had stayed longer.

Excellent stay and a good value

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The location was convenient to Volcano NP and Puna, and the space was lovely - very comfortable and well appointed. It really feels isolated (in a good way) and like staying in the jungle. Beautiful apartment and beautiful grounds! I appreciated too that the evenings were a tad cooler than elsewhere because of the elevation. Be aware that there are coqui frogs that sing very loudly all night long. It didn't bother us, but I might be a problem for someone with sleep difficulties.

Fantastic rural getaway

  • 5 of 5

Blown away by the accommodations. This is a very spacious 1 bedroom apt with a full kitchen, which already contains several basics (spices, different sauces, flour, rice, etc). The apt is beautifully decorated, and the owners are incredibly thoughtful in how they have stocked the rooms. The property itself is beautiful, and my husband really loved the background crickets/toad/bird noises at night, while we both loved the secluded feel. I would only say that you should not use a GPS device to get to this place, especially in the dark (this goes for most of the Big Island; GPS does not work well here, use google maps (if you can get reception in a rural setting like this) or bring a map printout). The road to this place is well paved, so if you find yourself driving onto some awful roads, GPS has led you astray. The owners were very kind about helping find the place when we got lost, and they even drove out to come get us.

Excellent home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed here for a weekend and we kept talking about how we’d love to come back and stay there again. It’s a spacious upstairs apartment with a full kitchen. Bonnie and David left fresh fruit for us from their yard, and we ate as much of it as we could. It saved us a meal or two. The bed was comfortable and we were grateful for the extra blanket they offered us. There were plenty of towels, a blow dryer, and lotion & soap for us. We also loved that they left us maps and visitor info on local restaurants, Volcano Nat’l Park, and popular things to do in Hilo. In one weekend, a friend and I were able to visit 2 of Bonnie’s fave restaurants, the Hawaiians Botanical Garden, Black Sand Beach, the Volcano Winery, and the Punalu’u Bakery. We would have made it to Volcano Nat’l Park if it wasn’t unexpectedly closed (due to govn’t shutdown). This place was central to our visiting all of these places. Definitely recommend for the comfort, space, and Big Island feel. Hope to be back again soon!

Nice stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful - spacious place to stay! The provided papayas, pineapple, tangerines, lemons, and apple bananas was an added enjoyment - more than we had time to eat. Very friendly hosts. Well worth the cost!

What a wonderful place to stay !! Great location near Volcano National Park..

Gracious hosts who put much thought into everything you might need to feel “at home”

I hope we’ll be able to return someday to the Big Island, if so we will look forward to staying here again.
