A short drive is Volcano Village and Volcano National Park with Kilauea, the world's most active volcano, located about 22 miles away. Kilauea is currently experiencing some of the most active lava flows in recent history. Tour the thousands-of-years-old lava tubes which stretch for miles and gaze in awe at active lava flows.
A very quiet area but accessible to many parts of East Hawaii and close to the Highway to go to many places
You need to rent a car, bus service is sporadic
Noel was wonderful to chat to and was helpful in figuring out what to do. He has an awesome property that feels like you are in the middle of the jungle! The sound of the frogs at night was really neat. We had a great stay, thanks Noel!
Lovely place, room had antique furniture and the mattress was amazingly comfortable. The dirt road out is a bit rough and the windows in room didn't have curtains. There's no one to see in and no way they could through the trees anyway, but my husband did find it disconcerting. Noel (email hidden) who made excellent suggestions for local sights and restaurants.
I and my cousin enjoyed his house.
He is helpful and very kind.
Right off the highway and easy to find (relatively: no obvious house #, maybe I missed it?) Road is rough, but hey--it's Hawai'i. Noel made it easy for us to get in, communicated with us well, and was super-nice. He was generous enough to give us free tickets to the Merrie Monarch Festival (thank you again).
Very nice stay. The house is in a green surrounding, realy nice. Noel is very helpful and had a lot of good and helpful advices.
My husband and I had the opportunity to stay with Noel for a week which was a very pleasant experience. We had our own bathroom with normal and beach towels: so relaxed and easy. Noel was a very nice and helpful host who offered a lot of useful tips for activities and shopping opportunities etc. All together: Thank you Noel for the great time and interesting conversations! :-)
Beautiful home, reasonable price. Coqui frogs at night, which we quickly got used to.
I had a most pleasant stay with Noel. He (email hidden), a nice guy and made my experience feel as though I was visiting a long-time friend. He has a lovely house, convenient and was first class in the handling of the transaction. He merits additional visits and referrals.
Noel has a really beautiful house, and the room was great. A perfect jumping off point to get to Volcano or Puna. Road to the house is unpaved, so go slow with the rental car.
The place is conveniently located close to most of east Big Island attractions. Noel is a very accommodating host and gave us some very helpful recommendations.
