About our host we can not say much. We only met her at our last evening when we arrived at the house.
The appartement was spacious with an outside lanai from the bedroom, however for the paid cleaning fee we expected it a lot cleaner. The pots and pans for cooking were not so inviting, since they are stored in the outside kitchen, so wehad to preclean everything first.
As it's very close to the hilly highway 19 we heard the roaring cars and thundering trucks all night long very close. That took a little away from the relaxing vacation experience. Otherwise the house is only a few miles south of town and conveniently located to either visit beaches, snorkelling spots or some other attractions like the bay where the mantaray-night-snorkel starts.
We wouldn't have liked to stay longer though than the booked four nights and hence didn't hang out at the house during daytime at all.
This place was a great value -- a comfortable and private place to stay in a central location for exploring the eastern side of the Big Island. We appreciated having the outdoor living room in addition to the bedroom, especially during the warmer evenings. There is some traffic noise from the nearby highway, but it's an otherwise very calm neighborhood. We had a wonderful trip!
