Belin was a fantastic host! She was incredibly hospitable and was great with our infant daughter whom we were traveling with. She was easy to talk to and very helpful. We really enjoyed her company. The space was very comfortable and we felt at home there. We especially loved the open air feel- very relaxing. We would highly recommend this listing to anyone traveling to this area.
Great place to stay! Clean and comfy. Hostess was amazing. Caring and helpful. We loved staying here and hope that we can come back for another visit. P.S. Thanks for actually offering the 'breakfast' in bed and breakfast.
Thanks so much for your warm hospitality&cosy place.The restaurant you recommend is good.Mahalo!!
Berlin is so nice and helpful and really considerate. I love the sweet house and the tasty banana planted in their backyard. The only pity is that its location is a little far away from the Volcano National Park. But it's not a problem if you rent a car and drive by yourself.
The Place is very clean and a nice Spot. The host was very caring about us. Also the Garden with fresh fruit and veggies was very nice. I would totally recoment our room.
The place was amazing; we were in a bind looking for accommodations in Hilo and the host responded very quickly to our request. The place was a bit difficult to find but that's because we didn't read the posted detailed directions (totally our fault). When we got there we were greeted by Emma and Balin (daughter and host, respectively). They were super friendly and very welcoming. The room was also great, and we had sunrise in our window every morning. The room caught the cool island breeze so it was probably the best sleep we had during the hot nights (by then we were used to the sound of the island frogs). The common area was well equipped and was great for chilling in the reading nook. We wish we stayed a few night more but on the last night was had drinks with Balin and her husband and chatted about travelling and adventures. They had great stories and great advice for out next trip to the Big Island. When one of us lost our prescription eyeglasses in the madness of packing up and leaving, the hosts again responded very quickly to our emails asking about them.
The host was not present and was not very receptive in helping us to find the house . It was pitch dark and rainy and its hard to find a house in narrow roads in these conditions for a tourist.
The house description was accurate, but the fan was not working, it was making a lot of noise .. On top of this, there were frogs in the whole area which made it impossible for us to sleep.
When we reached, we met Marco and he was very helpful with everything and he was the only "good" part of the house.
I did not feel comfortable in the house and would not recommend this place.
Don't understand this , directions are on site, and easy to follow, I also texted directions to house and said don't hesitate to call if any problems. Do have coqui frogs all over island I provide ear plugs in every room, fan made noise, if they said something , would have provided replacement, did all we could for them, just no way to satisfy them, complainers
