It was a good house with location. Everything was as good as advertised. Mahalo

Everything about this place was as described and perfect for two of us! It is only a few miles from everything you could want when visiting this area - black sand beach (beware that clothing is optional) to lava viewing, Wednesday night and Uncle Robert's Bar Awa Bar and the market, to four-wheeling on the lava rock beside the ocean. It was very convenient for day trips to Volcanoes National Park and up the coast to Hilo and beyond. The house was clean and comfortable with an amazing deck to sit on and relax, even if the weather wasn't cooperating. I was a little worried about the set-up with the king-size bed connected to the living area, but it turned out to be a perfect set-up! I highly recommend Escape2Puna for a fun, relaxing, get-away-from-it-all vacation!

"All Shabby No Chic" Gorgeous property and location ( this is what you pay for). Unit was shabby, cheap, and dingy.

Beautiful treehouse style apartment - the place is exactly as described, clean, and very beautifully decorated. Bathroom is clean and there's a fun outdoor shower. Bed is super comfortable and overall the accommodations in the main apartment were great. We never made it out to the side house as there were only 2 of us so can't comment there. The only downside was the apartment is a bit out of the way if you intend to do a lot of exploring around Big Island. We were only there for a few days and ended up doing a lot of driving to get around and then it was always a long trip back at night (it's about an hour south of Hilo). If you're looking to stay close to the house and have a relaxed vacation this is your place, if you're looking to travel around the island I'd suggest staying somewhere more central.

Wonderful stay, very comfortable and a nice residential neighborhood. Driving at night is challenging, definitely plan to arrive during daylight. Also get food before getting down to the coast as there are no stores. They have a very well put together book in the house with most everything you need to know. Beautiful grounds with lots of cool plants (papaya, pineapple, lilikoi, banana, fire ginger, and more). Ohana is a bit rustic but also very cool. Water catchment system was sound (very important). Would stay again when in Kalapana. Only thing that would have brought us to 5 stars was a working refidgerator. We ate breakfast at "home" every morning, but our food spoiled. I'm sure they'll fix it, recommended they just buy a new one as the existing looks old and tired.

Mahalo for your review, Craig! We are glad to hear you had a nice stay. We have alerted the owners to the fridge issue so they can get a new one in there ASAP :-)

The home's location is great. It is in a safe, quiet neighborhood. The property lovely and private, a small paradise in itself. Loved the little ohana! It is right off the 'red road', a short distance from Uncle's Wednesday night market, black sand beach, Kapaho Tide Pools and the 'end of the road' that leads to the current lava flow. The home was very comfortable with a great deck and a peak of the ocean.
