Royal gave us a warm welcome into his home which was beautiful, clean and tranquil. He suggested beautiful areas near by to visit, as well as markets with intriguing vendors and delicious treats from food trucks. We found so much common ground with Royal, and are so happy to have made a friend in him. We truly had a relaxing experience and we loved the east side of the island.
(and if you're visiting from Canada, eat as much fruit as possible on this trip. There isn't anything quite the same back home. Royal will be a great guide)
Caryl and my experience was much of what is listed below.....soul food....Beegan(Vegan) style :) What Id like to add is the knowledge that Royal has of nutrition and the human experience. I would highly recommend his home as well as, and more importantly, taking time to learn from his life......his home is a reflection of his life....and his home doesn't do it justice....
Royal's home in Puna is beautiful! We loved the space as it was clean, fresh, and full of sunshine! I woke up at 5 to take a look at the stars and wow is that a sight! His green smoothies and fruit salads were spectacular and his knowledge of the island is vast. Mahalo Royal. We will be back!
Royal is extremely friendly and welcoming and it was not an issue that we are not vegetarians (although we are definitely looking into eating more healthy after having paid him a visit! ☺). He had a lot of good input on what to see/visit and even took his time to guide us to some of it. We shared a delicious raw vegan gourmet dinner, which he prepared, and although our stay was short we had a great time. This is a great place if you need to time to relax!
Royal is a fantastic host whom I now consider a friend. What a beautiful place to land in Hawaii. Mahalo!
We enjoyed sharing space with Royal greatly! The house was incredibly clean and peaceful, situated in a lush neighborhood about 10 minutes from Pahoa. Very close to the beautiful "red road" which runs up the East coast of Puna and has many local attractions (thermal pools, short hikes) and to the lava fields, Royal's place was a great pace to experience Puna. We grabbed groceries at Island Naturals in Pahoa, and also ate at the Coco Island Cuisine (locally produced organic foods, no sugar used, gluten and dairy free options). We would recommend Royal's place to anyone looking for a serene base to explore Puna!
My wife and I stayed in the double room for 13 days.
We chose this venue due to the elegance and simplicity and it indeed delivered and more. Royal is a gracious and wise host with lots of information about the area and healthy living. His green smoothies changed out lives ! He personally showed us around the area with lots of insight and advise. We will come back again.
Thanks Royal !
