I enjoy having coffee in the morning with my guests. It's a good way to get to know them, and share with them interesting facts about the island, and the wonderful sights to see in the area.
No smoking or pets
We had a great time as David was very welcoming and the dogs made our vacation homely since our furry friends were not with us. David had a good feel of the area and recommended some good options for exploring the area. The house was magnificent with a great view of the ocean, the bedroom was very spacious with a huge closet, and the bathroom is something you see in magazines.
My boyfriend and I stayed with David for a week. He was a great host. Very friendly, funny, and welcoming. He made us breakfast of fresh island fruit every day, and helped us find the best local places to visit. The Kapoho Tide Pools (Waiopae) was an amazing snorkeling experience that David took us to. David's house is beautiful. You can watch the sun come up over the ocean in the morning right from bed. David's dogs are also very friendly and nice to have around. Altogether a fantastic and highly recommended place to stay.
My daughter and I just completed a five night stay at David's magnificent house. First about David....he is a terrific host who is warm, interesting and accommodating. From the minute I booked my trip, David was responsive to every question and request that I had. He had great suggestions on places to go and restaurants to visit. I hesitated about booking a room at someone's house, but I could not have felt more comfortable! The house is beautiful, in an incredibly serene setting. I generally judge accommodations by the bathroom, and this one did not disappoint! The rain shower was magnificent with a gorgeous view! The room was very large and comfortable enough to share with my 21 year old daughter! We would start every day with freshly picked papaya that was amazingly delicious, and great conversations with David. I would DEFINATELY recommend staying at David's!
We had a very pleasent stay at Davids place. The house including the room an own bathroom is absolutly wonderful. It is very clean and modern. We loved the view. It is a 10 minute drive to the next town. David served us fresh fruit every morning and helped us planning our daily tours.
We loved the dogs!
The place is gorgeous - indeed peaceful and tranquil. I really enjoyed it. Thanks a lot.
Enjoy the lava : )
David was so welcoming and kind. He was willing to arrange massages for us and told us all the best spots to go see. Fresh papaya, bananas and coffee with local cream every morning was divine! We loved our room, the spectacular view from bed especially at sunrise, and the shower is amazing! Peace and tranquility is right, we felt so relaxed there under the stars. And his dogs are the sweetest! Plus it's close to everything you need but feels like a private retreat. We will be back. Highly highly recommend!
I don't even know where to start. This was one of the nicest Airbnb's I've stayed in. Regardless of cost. The property was absolutely beautiful. The photos don't do it justice! David was welcoming, and an awesome host. And had great tips for where to go and what to see. Breakfast and coffee in the morning was great. The three dogs were incredibly friendly, too. Honestly? Nothing negative to say about it. Six stars.
As for the neighborhood, the one neighbor I could see was quiet. If you've looked at the map, you can tell it's remote. The nearby town of Pahoa had everything I needed, and it was within striking distance everything I wanted to see.
