Wonderful experience! Jeannie was a great host. We loved chatting with her and getting recommendations from her on where to go on the island. The house was also great! She has a few simple rules about not eating in the rooms, etc. but we always ate on the lanai which was very relaxing. The room was very spacious and comfortable. We were so glad we chose to book this place. There is also tide pools that you could walk to where we seriously had one of the best snorkeling experiences ever. We were visiting from Oahu so that says a lot! The water was crystal clear and Jeannie mapped out the directions very easily. There is also Ahalanui Park in the area where my husband and I swam in the hot pond. It was like a giant hot tub sort of thing! It was AWESOME and very relaxing!
Great place within walking distance of the tide pools. House has amazing second floor wrap around deck with jungle all around. Jeannie's a great host with a lot of local knowledge. A great resource to have around.
The only con to this listing is it is pretty far too any amenties like stores, restruants, banks, ect. But if your on the Puna side that's probably what you want anyways.
Would definitely recommend this listing to anyone.
Jeannie- is truly a remarkable host. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and her suggestions are so well detailed you can easily navigate the island via Jeannie's description. Jeannie's establishment is paradise- if you don't mind a few bugs here and there, you will LOVE her wraparound porch surrounded by wildlife. You feel as if you are in the heart of a tropical jungle. Jeannie is next to amazing tide pools, perfect for snorkeling. She is in the center of Pahoa- a truly lovely town in between Hilo and the Volcano. Perfect for traveling on our favorite side of the island! Jeannie made Papaya boats for us every morning- you can tell she takes great pride in making you feel at home. She has snorkel gear ready if you need to borrow- and a full kitchen for you to cook in. Jeannie is eco-concious and composts on site. We would happily stay with Jeannie again!
Jeannie was great host.Her place is simply amazing!! Great snorkling!! I can only recommend.
Jeanie is very nice and friendly host. House is clean. Papaya+banana was tasty. She gave us a lot of useful tips for driving and good places to visit in big island like scenic drive, restaurant and activities. It was almost like a concierge. I will definitely recommend to my friends.
My boyfriend and I had such an amazing time at Jeannie's place! It was absolutely magical. The house is a jungle paradise and the place just calms and brings you back to equilibrium. Of course, the ambiance would not be complete without Jeanie herself. Jeanie is such a great person and a wonderful host. We hadn't gotten into the island spirit when we landed in the big island but all the stress and worries melted away the instant we got our first hug from Jeannie. She will do that to you. She is so chill and just so much fun to be around. She is filled with the aloha spirit through and through.
The main part of the house is on the second floor and the space has an amazing lanai that wraps around the house. Since you're on the second floor where you can see all the beautiful foliage that surrounds the property, it feels like you're in a tree house. I've fallen asleep outside on the lanai. It's just so comfortable and relaxing.
Jeannie gave us amazing recommendations on places to go and eat. She knows the good spots. I told her a couple of places that I wanted to see and she helped me plan out my days to make sure I was taking the best routes to hit all the sites.
It was an amazing experience and I can't wait to come back. Thank you thank you!
Notre séjour a été très agréable. La chambre et les parties communes étaient propres et soignées. La maison et sa terrasse sont très agréables pour les repas. Jeannie et sa cousine sont des hôtes charmantes. Nous recommandons cet endroit pour y séjourner.
From the outstanding directions to dancing to the Clash, we couldn't have asked for more from Jeannie! Leave your worries behind and experience the Aloha of a true islander. What a great experience!
Jeannie is the hostess with the mostest!! Everything from her candor, to her graciousness, to the papaya/banana boats she left us made our 3 day stay the best. The bedroom,bathroom,and kitchen were super clean and charming (cedar all through out). The area was super convenient from traveling around the island perspective especially if visiting the volcanoes or snorkeling in the tide pools. 10/10
The house is absolutely stunning (the pictures don't do it justice), the room was incredibly comfortable & the property is in an amazing location being only a few minutes walk from the most gorgeous tide pools- but above all, Jeannie is what made my stay so very special. She made my friend and me papaya boats for breakfast in the mornings and gifted me the most darling handmade anklet to keep her and the Big Island with me wherever I go. She is a magical, beautiful soul and I look forward to seeing her again during my next trip back. I highly recommend staying with Jeannie- just to meet her during my trip was a true blessing. She was also full of great suggestions on what to do and see on the island. Very grateful for my experience... many thanks for everything, Jeannie!!
