Mahalo (thank you) for your interest! If our calendar says we're booked, send us a message and we may be able to set you up in one of our other cottages for the same rate.
The house is nice, clean and quiet. Convenient location for visiting volcano, about 30-minute drive. but doesn't have any restaurant nearby, the closed one is located about 12 miles away. Julia is very nice to provide us info about visiting volcano and quick respond for any questions we have.
Julia is very nice and friendly. We arrived there very early in the morning, almost 9am, I sent message to her and asked her whether we could do early check in. Julia just came and open the door for us and told us everything about the house. I appreciated that!
The house is very beautiful ,and everything is clean. We spent wonderful time in this place. You do not need to take anything, just walk in and stay there!
We really enjoyed our weekend staying at Julia's delightful plantation-style home. We ended up upgrading to the larger house that was available. The kitchen was fully furnished with all the things we needed for cooking meals for our group. It was so comfortable just hanging out in the house and on the grounds that it was hard to leave for a hike to the green sand beach, to which the trail head was within a 30 min. drive.
The location of volcano park and a black sand beach were also conveniently located. This is the ideal place to have a family reunion and enjoy the nearby sites and local flavor of the upcoming Kau coffee region.
Everything was well prepared for our arrival and we found the house nice and clean. Julia was very friendly and responded quickly to all our emails.
One of the most special parts of our trip. Julia even invited us unexpected Christmas dinner with her friends which was fantastic. we are so grateful to have met her and her friends. We really enjoy our stay there and would definitely stay at her place again if I go back to Big Island!
We had a great time during our four day stay in the spacious Pahala Plantation Cottage. As described, it is conveniently located and is a short drive to the Volcano National Park and the black and green sand beaches. Julia and Rob were very responsive to our needs, and made our stay over Christmas a very pleasant one.
