Jeannie was INCREDIBLE! We drove in from Kona to her home and she had already stated in constant contact with us and gave us information as to where the good places to stop along the way! Once we arrived you'd think we were family showing up, we were created with arms open wide in an amazingly beautiful home! It's location was perfect, there were tide pools within walking distance from the house with the clearest water that's being heated by lava pools! She has a map inside her house that you can look at and find where to go! Unfortunately we cut our stay short due to friends unexpectedly flying I to Kona, however if and when we visit again we will most certainly be staying with Jeannie in her beautiful home!
Wonderful experience! Jeannie was a great host. We loved chatting with her and getting recommendations from her on where to go on the island. The house was also great! She has a few simple rules about not eating in the rooms, etc. but we always ate on the lanai which was very relaxing. The room was very spacious and comfortable. We were so glad we chose to book this place. There is also tide pools that you could walk to where we seriously had one of the best snorkeling experiences ever. We were visiting from Oahu so that says a lot! The water was crystal clear and Jeannie mapped out the directions very easily. There is also Ahalanui Park in the area where my husband and I swam in the hot pond. It was like a giant hot tub sort of thing! It was AWESOME and very relaxing!
Jeannie- is truly a remarkable host. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and her suggestions are so well detailed you can easily navigate the island via Jeannie's description. Jeannie's establishment is paradise- if you don't mind a few bugs here and there, you will LOVE her wraparound porch surrounded by wildlife. You feel as if you are in the heart of a tropical jungle. Jeannie is next to amazing tide pools, perfect for snorkeling. She is in the center of Pahoa- a truly lovely town in between Hilo and the Volcano. Perfect for traveling on our favorite side of the island! Jeannie made Papaya boats for us every morning- you can tell she takes great pride in making you feel at home. She has snorkel gear ready if you need to borrow- and a full kitchen for you to cook in. Jeannie is eco-concious and composts on site. We would happily stay with Jeannie again!
From the outstanding directions to dancing to the Clash, we couldn't have asked for more from Jeannie! Leave your worries behind and experience the Aloha of a true islander. What a great experience!
The house is absolutely stunning (the pictures don't do it justice), the room was incredibly comfortable & the property is in an amazing location being only a few minutes walk from the most gorgeous tide pools- but above all, Jeannie is what made my stay so very special. She made my friend and me papaya boats for breakfast in the mornings and gifted me the most darling handmade anklet to keep her and the Big Island with me wherever I go. She is a magical, beautiful soul and I look forward to seeing her again during my next trip back. I highly recommend staying with Jeannie- just to meet her during my trip was a true blessing. She was also full of great suggestions on what to do and see on the island. Very grateful for my experience... many thanks for everything, Jeannie!!
Jeannie is very kind person. Her house is great place to enjoy Big Island in real "Aloha style" ;)
Perfect time, wish we can come back some time again.
