Do as you please, but be respectful, that's all we ask.
We had a magical three days in the Big Island and the Lava Rock Hale was perfect for our island adventuring. The photos don't do it justice as to how cute it is and the night sky was something else. Eric and Diane are lovely people, Diane is the sweetest person you could ever hope to meet and was always there to give recommendations and directions to various activities on the island. She even gave us good tips for our next leg. Mahalo for the hospitality Eric and Diane!
Definitely one of the highlights of our trip. The place is so romantic ! We felt like in the middle of the jungle and that was a good way to cut from work for good. The place is clean, and Eric was extremely sweet. We absolutely loved it ! Thank you Eric !
Hi Eric and Dianne,
I totally enjoyed my stay in your Lava Rock Hale.Too bad my partner could not be along. Surrounded by nothing but nature, it truly is paradise. If only there was not the small matter of the lava flow. I have to keep thinking of you and hope that Pele has mercy with you. I much enjoyed my conversations with Dianne.
All the best, Bernie
What an incredible place to stay! You could tell that our hosts put tons of love and care into making this house feel like a home. Every detail was thought out. The house was comfortable and so was the bed. Diane was warm and welcoming without being invasive. The dogs and horses were a welcome addition. We really felt like we were staying at a friends house instead of a hotel. Mahalo!!!
Lava Rock Hale was a wonderful stay that started with welcoming hugs from Diane. The accommodations are vey unique in all the right ways. Beautiful both inside and out, the design and craftsmanship of the Lava Rock Hale met all our needs. The bed is very comfortable with a small TV and DVDs to relax to in the evening. Details of the tile work and kitchen table add a sense of class not found in a typical rustic accommodations. There is an outdoor shower with plenty of hot water and a small walk to a lovely outdoor bathroom. Two horses and two dogs live on the property as well as the owners. Eric was attentive to all our needs making sure we had what we needed.
The area is fun to explore, my favorite being snorkeling in the tide pools.
Lava Rock Hale is a very special place. We really loved it and hope to return.
We absolutely love this place. If we are ever back on the big island, this is where we are staying, no matter what side we need to be on. Its worth the drive. A few things to keep in mind, you will need a car to get around. It's a cozy, beautiful place, but you need to love nature to stay here. If you stay here, please take care of it well. Eric and Diane, thank you so much for opening up your doors to us.
