This place is fantastic! Amazing hosts, amazing location, friendly dogs, wonderful pool. Even some fresh fruit and a list of places to explore.
I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to the Big Island! Wonderful!
Dennis and Paul were extraordinary hosts. They had an uncanny way of making you feel like a friend as opposed to a guest. We felt incredibly welcome. My husband and I really enjoyed their company, wonderful stories and local knowledge.
The property is so stylish with amazing grounds that look like a movie set in some exotic Pacific style film. We loved walking around the grounds and playing with the gorgeous dogs. Felecia was a real hoot!
The accommodation was really tasteful, comfortable and very private. It was so peaceful, you are lulled to sleep at night by an orchestra of geckos and frogs, it's intoxicating. Come morning time a dip in the beautiful pool is just the ticket to refresh you for the day ahead.
Thank you Dennis and Paul for a truly wonderful and unique experience.
Dennis and Paul were excellent hosts who made our stay as comfortable as possible. They had many great tips for activities. The property is just beautiful, very well maintained and as described really a Garden of Eden.
The accommodation offers plenty of privacy and the chance to relax. The outdoor shower at night under the starry sky ... unbeatable!
We truly recommend to stay at Mongolay!
Dennis and Paul's hospitality was extraordinary. 10/10. Gorgeous property, great owners, cute/fun dogs, perfect experience. The room is off by itself so you feel like you have as much privacy as you need, incredibly clean and well updated inside. We really felt like we were in a tropical paradise and wish we had spent more than just a couple of nights there. It's just such a peaceful and serene get-away type place.
Dennis & Paul are wonderful hosts- lots of local knowledge. great conversation and aloha. We loved the guest house and gorgeous grounds. Especially loved the outside shower. Area is perfect for tide pools (excellent snorkeling), warm pool swimming and only 45 min drive to the Volcano National Park.
Thank you Dennis and Paul for your lovely and fun hospitality!

Die Gastgeber Dennis & Paul waren während unserem Aufenthalt in der "Mangolay" abwesend, somit hatten wir die Anlage für uns allein und wurden von den 3 Hunden bewacht.
Joes, der Nachbar, hat uns mit der Unterkunft bekannt gemacht, ist täglich vorbeigekommen und hat uns gute Tipps zur Erkundung der näheren Umgebung gegeben. Das Haus mit zusätzlicher Aussendusche, de Pool, das Aquarium und die vielen Kunstgegenstände - wirklich ein "Garten of Eden". Ein echter Naturliebhaber wird sich auch am Quaken der Coquis nicht aufregen. Die Mangolay liegt 17 km von Pahoa mit Restaurants und Supermarkt entfernt, doch in der Anlage steht ein Grill zur Verfügung. Wasser und Obst waren bei unserer Ankunft im Zimmer. Wer die Natur, die Ruhe und die Abgeschiedenheit liebt, wird sich hier sehr wohl fühlen.
