A parte interna da casa atende bem as expectativas. Justo pelo preço que se paga. Mas a parte externa da casa poderia estar mais limpa e arrumada, o que não incentiva a utilização do espaço e também acaba atraindo muito insetos e bichos para o local.

Response from John:
Aloha Fliipe, we where there for you you to help you as best we could, thanks for the review , as with any international reservation and language barrier it can be difficult to meet expectations, Not everyone values ohana or the specail care we give and are used to being ignored and left on their own but that is not how it is here. In the spirit of aloha i hope we where able to make you feel at home.

Der Vermieter war bemüht, dennoch die Unterkunft war nicht so toll. Die Möbel waren alt und abgewohnt.

John User Profile

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, and a friendly host, 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!
