Immaculate and spacious room with a luxurious ensuite. Tasteful decor and great attention to detail. This place is definitely worth staying in.
Fall asleep to tree frogs and wake up to birds. It's about a 50 minute drive to volcano national park. There's also eateries in Pahao (10 minute drive).
David was a friendly host, the coffee and fruit in the morning was a bonus. He has three well behaved dogs that are super cute.
Lovely location. Lovely home. Lovely host. Dave was very accommodating, and informed us of the best sights and restaurants in the area. Recommended.
What a gorgeous place! The views from this spacious bedroom are what you expect from a vacation in paradise: the Pacific Ocean in the background and the grassy yard will make you love your decision to stay here. The master bathroom is also a show stopper with its green granite and waterfall shower... Showering there is the best way to start your day while seeing the sun rise over the ocean. David is a great host, who provided great advice on what to do while in the big island. The doggies are adorable and friendly. Great base to explore the volcano, lava fields and snorkeling at Wai 'Opae tide pools. Awesome fruit breakfast too!
We had a great time as David was very welcoming and the dogs made our vacation homely since our furry friends were not with us. David had a good feel of the area and recommended some good options for exploring the area. The house was magnificent with a great view of the ocean, the bedroom was very spacious with a huge closet, and the bathroom is something you see in magazines.
My boyfriend and I stayed with David for a week. He was a great host. Very friendly, funny, and welcoming. He made us breakfast of fresh island fruit every day, and helped us find the best local places to visit. The Kapoho Tide Pools (Waiopae) was an amazing snorkeling experience that David took us to. David's house is beautiful. You can watch the sun come up over the ocean in the morning right from bed. David's dogs are also very friendly and nice to have around. Altogether a fantastic and highly recommended place to stay.
My daughter and I just completed a five night stay at David's magnificent house. First about David....he is a terrific host who is warm, interesting and accommodating. From the minute I booked my trip, David was responsive to every question and request that I had. He had great suggestions on places to go and restaurants to visit. I hesitated about booking a room at someone's house, but I could not have felt more comfortable! The house is beautiful, in an incredibly serene setting. I generally judge accommodations by the bathroom, and this one did not disappoint! The rain shower was magnificent with a gorgeous view! The room was very large and comfortable enough to share with my 21 year old daughter! We would start every day with freshly picked papaya that was amazingly delicious, and great conversations with David. I would DEFINATELY recommend staying at David's!
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.
We had a very pleasent stay at Davids place. The house including the room an own bathroom is absolutly wonderful. It is very clean and modern. We loved the view. It is a 10 minute drive to the next town. David served us fresh fruit every morning and helped us planning our daily tours.
We loved the dogs!
The place is gorgeous - indeed peaceful and tranquil. I really enjoyed it. Thanks a lot.
Enjoy the lava : )
David was so welcoming and kind. He was willing to arrange massages for us and told us all the best spots to go see. Fresh papaya, bananas and coffee with local cream every morning was divine! We loved our room, the spectacular view from bed especially at sunrise, and the shower is amazing! Peace and tranquility is right, we felt so relaxed there under the stars. And his dogs are the sweetest! Plus it's close to everything you need but feels like a private retreat. We will be back. Highly highly recommend!
