Living in one of the most beautiful places on the Big Island, near the lava flow (20 mins), best snorkeling (3-4 min walk), and Hawaii Volcanoes National park (45 mins) is awesome. We basically hang out as we have pretty much tried to retire from stressful jobs. We have had budget travelers, couch surfers and workaway'ers here! Met some great people! Like people with a little luggage but not a lot of baggage.
