Dolphins are curious and friendly and they come to swim around you. This is an incredible experience of sharing the ocean with these creatures.

From December to May, you may catch a glimpse of majestic humpback whales. These gentle giants come to the warm Hawaiian waters every year to breed and give birth to new calves. Seeing these long giants breach the water is an unforgettable sight.
We can schedule for you a tour to spot these magnificent creatures. As guide take you to the best spots to observe whales playfully surfacing, tail slapping, or blowing spouts in the air. Regulations prohibit boats from approaching within 100 yards of a whale and you should never swim with or touch whales or any other marine mammals.

Great secluded spot. Peacocks, oranges, avocados, lemons. Couldn't have enjoyed our stay more!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Myriam and her husband are very nice people, who readily share their fruit, diving knowledge, and diving equipment. They quickly responded to specific requests for cooking equipment or other needs. On a clear night, the stars are beautiful, but being at a higher eleveation, there is more rain than at sea-level.
However, the lodging is at the end of a mile-long, one-lane road, unpaved in places. The apartment is not completely furnished (no real table to eat on), and is surrounded by construction debris. The neighborhood, as noted, has numerous "no trespassing" signs, making it impossible to even take a walk. We found the feral cats intrusive. If you are looking for an isolated, rural setting and do not mind the very rough road or partially furnished cottage, this might work for you. We would not consider it again, and would not recommend it to anyone who is expecting a complete vacation rental. The cottage, while spacious, would be better suited to a local resident, but not at the near-Honolulu rates we paid.
Quiet and lonely cottage on top of the hill, the road up the hill maybe difficult for a standard car, I will recommend at least a SUV to go up there, The location is great, close to Two Steps and Kona, We really enjoy our 3 nights there.
We were shocked at the road up the hill. Not only was it extremely rough but encountered numerous "private-Keep out" signs. Rustic, but enjoyable with the animals. Our fridge was unplugged and ran out of propane after under a minute, so didn't get off to a great start. House needed to have been cleaned before we arrived, not just after the last guest left. The offer of fresh fruit was nice but the oranges were all behind locked gates. Contacted Myriam about canceling our 2nd and 3rd nights. Never got an answer, just excuses.
Was looking for a place to end the trip. We only stayed one night here. Quaint and quiet, but it is a haul to drive up that high!
My parents and I stayed in the house of Myriam and Alain this past weekend. Their house are wonderful , they have beautiful garden with animals, it is really nice to wake up and make an orange juice with the fruit of the garden :-)
2 The bedroom and bathroom were clean, bed were comfortable, and they were very friendly to us.
Alain is professional diver , I will bring diving with manta ray by night or any other beautiful dive or snorkeling spot.
They both really know the island since he has been living there for many years , they will help you to plan your visit for sure.
Their home is located 5 minutes max from Captain. I would highly recommend their home to anyone interested in staying in Big Island.
