Interaction with Guests
I enjoy having coffee in the morning with my guests. It's a good way to get to know them, and share with them interesting facts about the island, and the wonderful sights to see in the area.
No smoking inside.
Had a very good time staying at Dave's. The place is a hidden gem, though a little bit hard to find. In the middle of rain forest, it gives u peace and tranquility as described. You will have a stunning view throughout the glass window, starry sky, forest and ocean view. Wish I could stay longer. Dogs are also very cute. Would def recommend this place. But don't recommend driving there at night.

This place was incredible! It was quiet, beautiful & exactly as pictured! Everything was so clean & ready for us when we got in. David was incredibly kind. It was my husband's birthday the day we arrived & he was kind enough to pick up a cake for me & it was ready & waiting for my husband when we got there. We had everything we needed, even a french press for some coffee! He even left us some delicious fresh papaya & bananas in the morning. It really was excellent! The view was amazing & the sound of the frogs as night was so cool. We loved how lush the area was. His dogs were beautiful & friendly & loved to greet us every morning. :) Only thing that could be considered a negative is the WiFi & TV were down/broken (was going to be fixed the day after we checked out), but we didn't care because we were out and about exploring Volcano! Otherwise everything was great! Thanks so much David!!! We will definitely recommend your place to anyone we know who is going out to the big island!
We pretty much enjoyed staying at his place, wonderful view from the bedroom over the whole estate. David was very helpful and served a nice breakfast on the lanai with fruits, fresh juice and coffee.
Please note that the GPS will most likely guide you to the wrong place, so follow David's directions
I loved Peace & Tranquility at David's b n b ! It was everything I expected and lots more. Beautiful views, David is an awesome host! The room was large and very private. Loved no tv and no phone reception. Was heavenly!
I would go back and stay anytime. It truly is a Hawaiian experience!!
Mahalo David we enjoyd very much your beautifull house and the incredible surrounding. Everything is very clean and you are a really good host. Your breakfast is so lovely prepaired and the view can not be more beautifull. Highly recomended
We could not recommend this place more highly. Beautifully situated in rural Puna, it's close to great snorkeling and the volcano-heated ocean pools. David knows the area really well and is great with recommendations. The home itself is beautiful and we had a very clean and private room with bathroom all to ourselves. You can enjoy a nice breakfast of fresh fruit on the covered porch, chat with David, and play with his 3 extremely friendly dogs before heading out to enjoy Puna. Though we only stayed one night here, it was among our favorite places to stay in our 2 week trip. Wonderful host, wonderful place, and wonderful location.
