David (Aden) was a fantastic host during our stay near Pahoa. He proactively checked in on us for several days prior to our arrival and provided wonderful insider guidance during our stay. He joined us on our first night for fantastic dinner and conversation and is a really gracious host.
The Pool House was just as advertised with an excellent outdoor shower that we enjoyed several times. We stayed for three days which was the perfect length to visit all the local sights and stops. Downtown Pahoa is a block away, so you can walk into town each evening for dinner or drinks.
We recommend Aden and the Pool House wholeheartedly!
I was felt welcome and enjoyed my two night stay at David's place
The location is right in the middle of making it easy to walk for food or anything you might need
I highly recommend staying at this listing. David is an amazing host. Throughout our 8 day stay he was constantly available to help us with any questions about the house and Big Island. Everyday he would send us text messages on events/opportunities occurring on the island. David is extremely interested in making sure you have the perfect experience in connection to both his home and the island, and our group of 5 really appreciated it.
The house is sick. When staying here and talking to David you become aware that David isn't simply trying to create a great AirBnb listing, he is trying to create the AirBnb listing that he would find to be the perfect place. As such, he has put a lot of time and thought into the little details that make this place great: mini fridges in all the bedrooms, a sound system that can be directed specifically to any of the rooms/pool area, fantastic lighting, tons of lounging areas, a mini bar, etc.
The location of the house is ideal; all the stores/restaurants of Pahoa are within walking distance.
The reservation was canceled 18 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The Annex is a simple but nice accommodation for those who love a cheap but simple one.
I stayed for more than month and had a stunning time there. It was clean and cozy with a great and well furnished kitchen. Because of my long stay it was as clean as I kept it.
David was a very accommodating host. Don't be anxious by his strictly announcement about the rules, they are as simple as useful. He's very nice and at least to me, he was more than only a host. I had so many opportunities to get to know how to live here and David showed me a lot of Hawaii and island lifestyle. Mahalo nui loa for all of that.
Unfortunately a lava flow threatened this small paradise. But if it's further exists I'll come again.
Thanks to all my friends there for this stay in paradise. God bless you!
David was an absolutely wonderful host - gracious, thoughtful, and full of great recommendations for making the most of our time in Pahoa and on east side of the island in general. The accommodations are as clean and uplifted as they look in the profile - everything is accurately represented. A great place to unwind, and it's in walking distance to restaurants, shops, and a natural foods store. We loved our time here and look forward to a another restorative visit. Beautiful, tranquil, truly chill.
I had a lovely time on the eastern side of the Big Island thanks to the cool boys currently in residence at the house: Chris, Rob, and Alex.
You get your own room - big, airy, and simply furnished - and share the kitchen and a couple of bathrooms. The place is clean if a little run down but David has 'posher' rooms next door for those that want to spend more.
Located within easy walking distance of the centre of Pahoa, this is the definite wild side to the island and has a very chilled vibe. Don't underestimate how much there is to do over here - I wished I could have stayed longer!
This is a well stocked camp base for your scouting expeditions through Puna District. I recommend it because of it's unbeatable price in relation to the central location in the district, it's well stocked kitchen you can use, it's garden you can use as well and the historical expierence you get be using in the original Japanese style outdoor shower and toilet. There is a bathroom in the house as well - also Japanese style. And surprisingly for the German guests this shower is similar to the ones back home, which I liked a lot. David and his long-stay guest Kurt are very helpfull, I enjoyed the kitchen talks and the dance party in Pahoa a lot. However I don't know if the latter is a regular thing ;D
Oh, end keep in mind that there are little chores to do for each night you spend there. Look Out for the little cucumbers I planted in the garden.
House is great, pool, hot tub & outdoor shower! David, thank you for being such a great host! You were so friendly and helpful. We would have missed some things without you. I felt very at home with you.
My stay at the Annex was great. The work trade took a little bit of a burden off my wallet and the location was great for exploring Pahoa. The place is simple and between the four of us living and working there we managed to keep it clean and cozy.
Great guy , very professional and very aware of my space ..it was a pleasure meeting him and letting him stayed at my house ..
