  • It is really the host JOHN who made my first airbnb stay a remarkable experience. I and my friend had the two-bedroom suites on the 2nd floor and i love my room. Sheets are clean and bed is comfortable. My friend's room has some smell the first day, but John took care of it right after we complained about it the 2nd day.
    The outdoor hallway on the 2nd floor is amazing, with the stunning sunset ocean view and windbell singing. It felt amazing of sitting there preparing my scuba learning. :)
    Also, John was very considerate of preparing every guest fruit and drink, and even pulled out the ping pong table for us. :) Normally I stay in hotel most of my trip, but spending time in his house really added a lot of flavor and fun into my trip. Also, he is so helpful when it came to helping me plan the tour seeing etc. Thank you John. And I will definitely come back.

About
I am a bit of an eclectic person, I like to do cultural travel, grow tropical exotic fruit, definately into the whole health and wellness thing. I've found that I really enjoy the hosting aspect of having people come into my home and us get to know each other over the course of their stay. Maybe it's the massage therapist in me but I really enjoy the satisfaction that comes with providing a good experience for my guests, be it good advice on what to see and do, brewing fresh coffee in the morning, or having everything clean, ready, and in order when guests arrive. Having traveled a lot myself (staying in everything from hostels and guesthouses to five-star hotels), I know only too well what kinds of things are important to me in a homestay -- conveint location,clean linens, a comfy bed, helpful people that turn me onto the to do's of the place and a hot shower after a long day of traveling or sightseeing. Oh, (email hidden), of course.. I really, really enjoy living on the Big Island of Hawaii and know it pretty well. I'm amazed every day that a place as special as this exists and that I get to call it home and I'm thrilled when I get to share it with others. Hope to see you soon!
