I enjoyed my stay at Da Surf Shack. Unfortunately, Steven did not have the room ready for me and I had to wait close to 8 hours past check in time for the room to be ready. I would recommend Steven's place if you are looking for affordable accommodation without the bells and whistles. It is close to Pahoa and close to the ocean in a quiet neighborhood in a peaceful setting.
Staying in da surf shak is quite an experience. We definitely enjoyed it but it's not your average room. Steven provided us a very easy check-in and was very helpful. Da surf shak is a cosy place, right in the jungle with comfortable bedding. Keep in mind there is no electricity, it's not 100% closed (although completely covered) and the composting toilet is quite hard to reach.
It's definitely adventure, but we loved it.
Steven was incredibly kind and let us shower in his house.
Da Surf Shak has a very outdoorsy feel to it so I'm glad we're used to camping. Just remember that it has an outdoor compost toilet and no electricity. We definitely enjoyed the jungle atmosphere and privacy. Steven was a very cool, nice host to talk to.
The Surf Shack is great value for your money (you get two bunk beds and a bed "upstairs" where a couple can sleep).
The fresh fruit were delicious
The hosts were very friendly and helpful. When I stopped for a shower or to recharge an electronic device at the pineapple house I always enjoyed a chat with them and their fresh smoothies were delightful.
Just remember that the Surf Shack is a very nice cabin with great beds (no sleeping bags required) but with no electricity, water etc.and you will have a great time.
You will have jungle sounds all night which is in my opinion much better than the sound of traffic which is completely absent in this area.
