My first Airbnb experience, I really enjoy stay with them. Excellent house, nice people. I hope to stay with them again. Highly recommend.
Whole-heartedly recommend Dennis and Paul's paradise. It's off-the-beaten path, to the point that when we sat down for dinner our first night in Pahoa, my mind scrambled for the correct language to address the staff. The bungalow is perfect and the landscaped three acres surrounded us with tropical wonder.
They are fabulous--gave us great recs on activities and eats. Unparalleled selection of snorkel gear. Great with communication and directions too. It's about 15 minutes to town and probably best navigated by daylight the first time. We visited Volcano twice in our four day stay and thought the drive was very (website hidden): Outdoor shower! And great coffee! xox to Miss Felicia, the hostess with the mostest :)
Our stay was fantastic! Great place, great hosts, great location. Paul and Dennis were very accommodating by our late arrival. Such gracious hosts and provided a lot of helpful information about the area and we also spent an evening of interesting conversation over wine. The place rivals the world's best boutique hotels set amongst a tropical backdrop. We were sad to go and can't wait to return!
We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Mangolay as part of our honeymoon. We couldn't have been happier with the beautiful accommodations. The property is truly a work of art. Dennis and Paul were both incredibly kind and eager to offer advice on local attractions (the local market was a homerun) as well as share stories of their travels. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived. The fresh fruit upon arrival was also a very welcome and unexpected touch. One word of caution, the room is not air conditioned. If it is really humid on the island as it was during our stay it can be quite warm. That being said, the fan above the bed and breeze through the front door do make it quite livable. Overall, I wouldn't change a thing about our stay.
We can only more than endorse the many other positive reviews about the hosts and the property. Don't hesitate just go!
Garden of Eden passt ganz genau zu diesem sehr schönen, erholsamen Plätzchen auf dieser Erde. Wir haben 3 Nächte gebucht und wären gerne noch länger geblieben. Wir würden herzlich von Dennis und Paul empfangen, tauschten uns bei einem Getränk über unsere Reisen aus und wir würden über die Gegend aufgeklärt. Zudem fanden wir in unserem Häuschen eine Liste mit den Unternehmungen in der Nähe.
Das Zimmer war perfekt sauber und es waren Obst und Snacks bereit gelegt worden.
Wir hatten unseren totalen Frieden und empfehlen Dennis und Paul gerne weiter.
Dennis und Paul sind wirklich sehr gastfreundlich, man fühlt sich richtig wohl! Die Unterkunft und die Anlage sind sehr schön gemacht. Einiges zu unternehmen gibt es in der Gegend auch (Schnorcheln, Lavaströme, Straßenfeste, etc) - Dennis und Paul haben sogar einen kleinen "Tour Guide" mit Tipps für Ausflüge, Essen gehen, etc. erstellt! Es war ein toller Aufenthalt!
