Enjoyed staying here very much, got loads of inside information about the island. The house is located in a quite neighbourhood with a few turkeys as well :-)

Good place to explore the west coast of Big Island.

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

Definitely not your average tourist hotel, which is a good thing in my book. Cozy rooms, a nice deck and good quiet location in a residential area. The owner was very helpful as well.

Stay here if you enjoy being away from more touristy places and a little closer to Hawaii.
