It was such a lovely lodging experience at David's cottage. Pitty I could stay there only for 1 night. David was very kind and let me use his washing machine and dryer (or he did it for me!!!) and also his snorkeling gear. The tropical climate in Puna and the beautiful ocean and lava beaches are magical. One thing you should be aware of the entire area, not only his cottage is they usually only have screens on windows and it can get cold at night. But he heated up the hot water for me which was very kind. Thank you, David!!!
日本では経験できないような自然に抱かれたエコロジカルなコテージです。近くには裸族が泳ぐKehena beachもあり、プナの東端には素晴らしいスノーケリングスポットもあります。周りにお店はないので、食材を買い込んで滞在するのがオススメ。基本裸族がたくさん住むエリアなのでカーテンはありません^_^; あと昼は暑いんですが、夜は湿気が入って冬は寒いかもしれません。でも割り切って楽しめばこんなに非日常な空間はないですよー。
We absolutely loved our stay at Dave's studio. It was a perfect little getaway. Dave was very flexible and accommodating allowing us to check in early. Upon arrival we were given a basket of amazing fruits from his garden. The tangelos were the best we've ever had! The studio itself was perfect for our stay. We enjoyed he new bathtub and it was great to have a full kitchen to use. Dave was very respectful of our privacy but also very warm and welcoming. The studio is super close to Kehena beach and a short drive to Kalapana. We will definitely be back!
David was there and available at check in.
Place was nicer than pics.
Comfortable bed and all we needed for our stay right there.
Place is walking distance to the beach.
Very satisfied. Would recommend and return!
The cottage is beautiful & private. Just what we expected!! Wilderness and peace. Simple and rustic. Recommend highly.
If you stay here, check out the "Tin Shack" coffee shop in Pahoa -- nearest amazing place for great coffee & snacks!
Val received us very warmly and showed us directly the way to the beach. We too a swim together and she gave us some nice tips about the island. It was like arriving in paradise! The garden was wonderful, with wonderful fruits and some very friendly ducks! We enjoyed our stay so much, were so impressed by the colors and the wonderful sweet smells around us. The honey house is probably the best stay we could have chosen on the island. Falling asleep (in very confortable beds!) and being surrounded by the birds singing and the very impressive sound of the rain. The area is perfect to reach interesting destinations on the island, and the beach is simply wonderful. We were so happy to stay there for some nights and will defenetly come back for a longer period of time! Thanks to Val, Dave (who we haven't met but we're sure he is as nice as Val is) and the nice neighbours we were surrounded by!
Beautiful grounds! Quite rustic. Quick walk to the beach and quiet and peaceful at night. Try the outdoor shower! Overall, a great experience. The large studio was quite cozy. Great space!
David was an excellent host. His guest cabin was absolutely charming. The whole atmosphere was magical, fresh fruit growing in the yard, curious tame ducks and the cutest cat in the world. Mahalo, David
We had such a wonderful time at the Honey House. The place was quiet, clean and airy, and the open-air shower looking out on an orange tree was lovely. David and Val were great hosts - very friendly and available, and they even brought us treats from their garden - coconuts, papayas, and the best avocados we've ever eaten! :)
If you want a feel for the real Hawaii, not the packaged, filtered glimpse you get from a resort hotel, then stay at the Kehena Honey House. This spacious studio/one bedroom detached apartment is in a beautiful, lush yard in the wonderful Hawaiian neighborhood of Kehena. Expect your stay to be more like staying with a friend than a B&B. You get fresh linens when you ask for them and an equipped kitchen, but it's up to you to clean up after yourself. It's comfortable, plenty of hot water and wifi. The yard features fresh fruit and tame, curious ducks wandering around. The host is usually available and very hospitable, providing whatever we asked for. There's no air conditioning, but that's typical for Hawaii -- you really won't need it. You will have to get used to geckos climbing around on the walls and ceilings, but they aren't a nuisance at all. Once the sun goes down all manner of critters start making noise, which is constant until the sun comes up. But this night music is quite soothing and part of the Hawaii experience you don't want to miss. The only reason we gave the Honey House four stars instead of five is there was insufficient privacy. Not all windows had curtains and the curtains we did have were quite sheer. Occasionally our host or his guests would wander past, sometimes making us uncomfortable. But other than that we had a wonderful stay and would recommend it to anyone who can tolerate the geckos and the night music.
