Interaction with Guests
I really enjoy interaction with my guests.....offering accompanied outings to the Warm Pond, local markets, special requests, loaning beach floaties, etc...providing seasonal fruits from the garden and fresh coconuts to drink!
I love that the properties are large and that the tall trees offer beautiful shade and cooling breezes from the ocean. I love that the road is infrequently traveled and it is quiet and the sounds of Nature are plentiful and beautiful.I love that there are Organic farms nearby and there are several fruit stands, and sometimes people can buy fresh coconuts on the main corner.I love that my home is situated within a grove of ancient tall Mango trees planted by decree from the Hawaiian king over 100 years ago, and these trees are protected from being cut down!
Most people visiting the Big Island rent a car for their stay. It is possible but distances are so big, the Public Bus System doesn't answer everyone's needs..there is a bus stop about 1 mile away to Pahoa and on to Hilo, there are 2 buses daily from Hilo to Kona
.We leave our outdoor shoes outside the front doorway on the stone pathway,..Vegetarian cooking preferred. This is a Non-smoking property There is a house manual in the kitchen for more specifics.. The house is solar-powered, so hairdryers and electric shavers and irons are not possible to use here.
