Hmmm, how to describe our stay at Babettes.......Perfect! A lovely, bright, clean studio room with everything we needed for our 3 night stay. Babette is a great hostess, shares her knowledge freely, respects her guests privacy. We've never stayed in Puna before. Will be changing that in the future. The Puna area has many great places to discover, away from the hectic Kona crowds. Nothing beats the easy, laid back pace of this region. Happy we were able to base ourselves out of a very peaceful Oliana Cottage. Mahalo Babette! Julie and Peter.
Oliana Cottage is a cozy retreat in paradise! Great place to stay and explore the parks and beaches of Puna. The cottage is secluded, quite and just a minute or two walk to Kehena Black Sands Beach.
Babette has a lovely little cottage in a beautiful setting in a fantastic part of the Island. It is walking distance to Kehena Beach, which is a gloriously crazy little beach.
The space is small, but it has everything you need: a modest but functional kitchen, indoor and outdoor shower, comfortable bed.
Lie back and let the frogs sing you to sleep!
Babette's place was a perfect get away location. Remote enough to feel like you were on a true holiday but close enough by car to any amenities you would need. I definitely recommend a trip to the tidal pools and a walk along the coast.
The cottage was very clean and well kept, it has a small kitchenette enough to make a quick meal and we found the bed really comfortable, just like home.
We would definitely stay again next time we head to the Big Island!
Oh, I've been putting off writing a review ... because I want to get it absolutely perfect -- just like Babette's Oliana Guest Cottage. It was so perfect for us. Squeaky clean. Completely comfortable. And situated in just the right place for us to get the groovy Puna experience. We walked to the breathtaking, clothing-optional beach and were greeted by the sight of spinner dolphins jumping for joy! We meditated in the grassy park and opened our eyes to a full moon rising over the ocean. We drove to Pahoa for delightful dinners. I ran through the neighborhood's gentle hills, inspired by ocean views and orchids blooming amongst the lava flows. AND we felt right at home at SPACE -- the farmer's market recommended by Babette -- where beet kvass, silver jewelry, tibetan prayer flags, and raw chocolates co-mingled to make an indelible stamp on our cherished memories of a most amazing honeymoon. Babette and her guest cottage are treasures and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her sweet space to anyone. Perfect for couples!!!
The cottage is amazing and clean and Babette is a really nice lady. You have everything what you need there, kitchen, bathroom and toilet and it's really spacious. We enjoyed staying there for two nights!
We booked this cottage to be close to the Kalapana Cultural Tours for a night hike, but sadly there was no lava flow when we arrived. However, this is a nice and secluded part of the Island with a stunning coastline. Babette greeted us when we arrived and ran through the house rules. She offered some good suggestions on places to visit and local eateries. The accommodation was spotless and tastefully decorated. We loved hearing the sound of the frogs at night (loud but wonderfully charming and tropical). Nice, clean place to relax and get away from it all.
