Perfect place to stay, secluded location exactly what we wanted, and most important thing, a view of the ocean.

Joy's home was perfect for my family and I. The views from the lanai were amazing to wake up to every day. There was a ton of driving to get into Hilo and back on the sandy side of the island. All in all it was a great stay!

Response from Joy:
Yes, as I mention in my description, Hilo is a half hour south of here, and the sandy beaches are 1-1/4 hours away. But if you enjoy being on the cool side of the island, where the weather is almost always between 68-78 with refreshing trade winds where lush tropical plants abound and where there's not much vog (volcanic pollution), with incredible views of the ocean, then it's well worth the drive. We believe we have the best weather in the world here in Papaaloa.
