We could spend nice time in nice place. Maria always keeps house so clean so that we slept very well every night. Thank you Maria and Daniel for your support for our vacation.
The reservation was canceled 12 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
sadly nice place but my host where not as relax and easy going as hooped for .
We lent you our bike and asked you kindly not to take it to the beach because we didn't have a lock. You agreed and then took it to the beach anyways. We kindly reminded you of our agreement but you had no apology. Walking into our private bedroom, opening our private cabinets, using our toiletries, leaving sand and food all over the carpet is not cool. We are very easy going and have been hosting for some time with ease and harmony. Our reviews here say it all. We understand that this is the first time you stay on an AIRBNB and that you are not used to it.. like you expressed... We think you might do better in a hotel rather than a family home. Blessings.
Nous avons bien aimé l'expérience de vivre chez Maria pendant une semaine. Ils ont été très gentils et se préoccupaient de nous. Ils nous guidées dans nos visites. La propreté est irréprochable, la chambre est très spacieuse. Comme nous y avons passés Noël, nous avons même eu droit à un cadeau. Ce sont des gens bien sympathique. Merci Maria et Daniel.
Maria and Daniel are extremely friendly and welcoming. Their house is amazing! It was very quiet and peaceful at night time that I felt I was sleeping in the jungle- only the sound of nature surrounding me. It's about an hour drive from hilo, walking distance to the black sand beach, and 15 mins drive to the warm volcano poor. Very nice area!
Our time at Maria & Daniel's place was fantastic. Everything was exactly as expected and it was a clean and pleasant environment. We got a lot of tips about what to do on the island and where the best markets etc were. We will definitely stay here next time! and would recommend this to everyone who wishes a clean and pleasurable stay.
It was a welcoming stay at a beautiful hous with friendly, interested hosts. We felt at home and also our littel son does.
The room is clean and big with a separate entance by the yard.
The area in Puna and Hilo is marvelous and the best place on the island in our opinion.
Maria and Daniel gave us a lot of suggestions and tips for the area.
We will definitively stay again at Maria and Daniel's hous if we are in Puna againe.
Aloha there! Thanks for checking us out!
