The name. Pele is the most well known god today. Although scholars consider her as a purely local development, the stories of Pele say that she came to these islands from somewhere else, sometimes as a human from Tahiti, and sometimes as a natural force that formed the Hawaiian chain of volcanic islands. In the most popular stories, however, she found the islands already here when she came, landing first at Ni'ihau, then Kauai, and moving onward until reaching her current home at Kilauea Crater on the Big Island. As a word in the Hawaiian language her name, pele, means molten lava. She is not, therefore, a spirit who lives in the molten lava, she is the spirit of molten lava itself. However, she is not the cooled-off lava rock, and the legend that she will curse anyone who takes rocks from her islands is a modern myth and not part of old Hawaiian tradition. Her various forms, expressed by herself or through aspects of her spirit "family," are those of an old, mature, or young woman; a white dog; fire; lava; wind; clouds; thunder; and lightning. She is also associated with the 'ohelo plant that grows on the slopes of the volcanoes

My wife and I spent a week here in late Feb and loved it. Nicolas was really easy to deal with and everything was as expected. We hired a car and the location made it really easy to get around - especially the road to Hana, also Makawao and Paia. Would happily recommend staying here..
Beautiful place in the semi - secluded Haiku. Definitely the place you want to be away from crowds, but make sure you rent a car, as you will need one! My stay was very relaxing and no issues. Great place I would go back again!
