We had a great time at Tracey's home at Kalapana. We spent 11 days on the Big Island, and chose this location as it seemed close to the Volcano National Park, the coast, and easy access to Hilo. The house was beautifully maintained, very comfortable, clean and Tracey's directions were easy to follow.What we had not expected was what a wonderful village Kalapana is. We managed to travel 1800 miles round the Big Island during our stay there, but also spent a lot of time exploring the district around Kalapana. The coast drive from Pahoa via Kapoho and Kaima was very scenic, and the nearby "painted church" a surprise. We enjoyed our meals at restaurants at Pahoa, and loved our "local" - Uncle Robert's. We enjoyed the music, and food there, and the Wednesday markets were great fun. We were residents at Kalapana for only a short time, but were able to make friends with local residents, with whom we have established "(website hidden)" contact. We would certainly return there, and have no hesitation in recommending Tracey's Home.
Tracey's house was a wonderful and private rainforest oasis at the end of the world. We loved it! There was no lava flowing when we were there, but it was such an incredible area! Friendly people, a great Wednesday night market around the corner, and the lava fields and the red road are just incredible. The place was clean and comfortable, and it allowed for lots of space for the kids to have play space. The yoga room has a separate entrance, so a good third bedroom only for another adult, but it made a great play room for us. I would highly recommend this place for those who enjoy getting off the beaten track a bit, while still being accessible to amenities.
