We are under 30 miles from the Hilo Airport.
Please no parties or special events at this house.
You may inquire: usually the main house can be booked (king bedroom, living room sleeping and two bathrooms, kitchen, etc.) for a reduction in price of $100 a night without the Forest Room but in this case the max occupancy is four - 2 adults sharing a room and 2 kids or teens in the living room. Ask for a "Special Offer". But please note that the laundry facilities are located in the Forest Room and if the house is booked at the special offer price there will be no laundry machines available.
Note that the map location may not be accurate - this rental is located above the Cooper Center on the Forest Reserve.
The entire five acres is your private domain.
Interaction with guests
I am available to the guests via phone, text or email. If all goes well the guests will have complete privacy for the duration of their stay - but I am available and usually have someone in the area if needed.
Other things to note
The home is located at close to 4000 feet of elevation and in the rain forest so it can be cool and rainy at any time of year. Please bring some warmer things for evenings and/or weather.
Treat the home with respect and have an amazing time.
We follow a common Hawaiian custom and ask that you remove your shoes in the house.
Please remember to turn off faucets when done with them as we are on catchment water.
