Everything everyone else is saying is true! Liz was an amazing hostess with a wealth of information. We (my mom and I) came to stay on the Big Island for just a few days after being in a resort on Waikiki Beach for a week, and I think we enjoyed the Jungle Hangout much more!
One thing I would note is that I almost felt bad that there were only two of us. There was plenty of space for more people, with a whole downstairs room/lounge with a tiki bar that we didn't do much more than peek in to. The kitchen/dining room/living room were lovely, and my mom enjoyed the one morning she got to relax in the hammock swings and drink coffee... she lamented on the last morning as we were driving away that she never even had the chance to walk around the grounds of the house because we were so busy!
As always, the only regret is that we did not have more time to explore the island and relax in the Jungle Hideout. Mahalo to Liz!
My friend and her family and I stayed in the Hawaiian Jungle Hangout during Feb 6-9th. The experience here was amazing and I would definitely recommend this place to my friends. Liz's instruction was very detailed and she even planed out the trip for us, since we had a conversation in the phone about the stay before we arrived. I basically follow her itinerary and explore the big island as much as we can. We only plan two full days in the big island, but it was great and her help was substantial!
My family and I stayed at the Jungle Hangout for 3 days and it was such a relaxing place, and Liz was an amazing host. She provided us lots of tourist tips and recommended restaurants and events during our stay. The house itself is also very cozy. I would highly recommend it to friends..
Tropical heaven! Secluded, out of the hustle and bustle. There were 2 couples in our stay, so the first thing we noticed was there was plenty of room for all 4 of us. Open floor plan and large kitchen. Even though the location was out of town, it was still close enough to be convenient to town. But Liz had thought of everything so we didn't need to go in town except for an unplanned prescription.. Loved all the night sounds and windows. I would definitely recommend this place unless you have problems with stairs; everything is upstairs except one bedroom. Liz was very communicative at all times. Easy check in and check out.
Liz - thanks for making our stay fantastic!
I would definitely recommend staying at the Hawaiian jungle hangout. Such a great house, and Liz was so amazing. She had so many great recommendations for things to do/places to go on the big island. Liz was also available to answer all our questions. Stay at this house. Do it!!!
We stayed at Liz's Hawaiian Jungle Hangout from 12/28/13 through 1/1/14. The house was beautiful and we instantly fell in love with it. The rain forest set up was beautiful and gave us the much needed retreat. The house is set up with a lot of utilities (pots/pans/toiletries/iron, etc), which was very helpful. Within 3-4 mi radius there are several shopping centers for grocery shopping/fuel etc. Liz also provided us with links to local events and adventures and all thanks to this information we were able to go see the lava flow with Ahui Hawaii !
Thanks for this wonderful experience and we will love to stay with you whenever we return to the island :)
We had a great time at the Jungle Hangout. Great location for exploring the east and south sides of the island, and the house itself is very comfortable (for a family of four) and surrounded by a beautiful lush rain forest. To top it off, Liz provided invaluable information that allowed us to better plan our trip to this side of the island. Highly recommended!
Very nice family house with secret in every little place you can imagine (garden, drawer, little coffer...). We spent 5 nights in this beautiful house lost in the jungle.
We would like to thank you for this amazing exeprience.
The house is wonderful. Perfect for a family. We were there just as a couple and we could enjoy the entire house so much. The house is clean. The coqui frogs are noisy when you are not used to but over the night you get used to it. Be sure to find read the direction given from Liz because GPS and even (website hidden) Maps weren't able to find the house.
Hopefully, we will come back. From Paris, France it is a bit far but we never know.
This place is absolutely awesome! We visited the islands for 4 weeks, and the last stop was the Big Island. Staying in the JungleHangout/JungleHut was the best conclusion of our vacation, we ever could dreamed of. This place is perfect! And Liz was so helpful and allways reachable via eMail. Thank you Liz for making our stay so pleasant!
- Many people stay on the more touristic westshore around Kona. The Hilo-Side may be more rainy, but much more adorable to my opinion. The people, the prices (of food or gas for example) and the most beautiful Farmes- and Night-Markets. Thumbs up for the Hilo-Side!
- Yes, nearly every evening you will hear the rain and the frogs and yes, both is surprisingly loud, but it was not disturbing at all. We loved it. And it was the best sleep we had since weeks. You're in the jungle there and it is beautiful!
- Liz is the most helpful person I allways talked to on AirBnB. It's a shame, that we couldn't meet in person, because she was out of the country at that time. Top1-Host!!!
So much more compliments to give, so less words left. JungleHangout and JungleHut are best of the best on the Hilo-Side of the Big Island!
