The house and property is lovely, as advertised. The screened in porch was a great place to snooze while the sun came up. It is high and offers an expansive view to the East. Everything worked well. It is a long way from Hilo, 25 miles or so from stores. We enjoyed the isolation but probably not for everyone. The neighborhood is rough, typical low Hawaiian, but for the most part quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and did a lot of exploring around the Hilo area. We would certainly stay here again.
Our stay was great! The house was very cute, and comfortable to stay. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the utensils you need to cook your own meals. The house was a bit out of town so make sure to get all your groceries before heading in. There are chickens all over the island, so travel with earplugs as the roosters can start pretty early. Great interaction thank you
My mom, sister and I stayed last weekend for parties we attended from friday thru sunday evening while visiting ohana and friends. We loved it! Very u'i, quiet, relaxing just awesome. Didn't find the TV remote until Monday morning when we were leaving. WE will diffinately be back. The Fire place was a life saver, lol. Better directions are turn right on N Kulani, left on Ihope, left on Livingston and 1st right is Maui. Go up the little bumpy road and the cute little cottage is about the 4th house on the left. Please go during daylight to find it 1st. But with all that WE LOVED IT. Mahalo again
My friends and I had a wonderful stay here. It was far enough away to be peaceful yet still close enough for us to easily go out and do things. The dirt road kind of threw us off at first, but when we got to the place we were happy we arrived. The place is small and cozy and is equipped with all the kitchen and toiletries you'll need. I was weary about the beds outside, but when I arrived I was excited to sleep outside and it turned out to be an amazing experience. The tarp shields you from the wind and the mesh along the entire lanai shields you from the bugs. The garden in the backyard is beautiful as well. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.
Awesome place in beautiful mountain country, 20 minutes to Hilo 20 minutes to Volcano, close enough to everything but far enough away enough that it is a very peaceful place to stay away from all the hustle and bustle. It is in a rural community with pretty rough gravel roads but besides that we highly enjoyed our stay. Owner and Host are very welcoming and helpful.
Jakapan is wonderful guest. Friendly polite and respectful for our eco lodge and appreciate all our bio natural biodiversity. A great company . Happy to recommend him and hope to host him again one day.
It was great hosting Jakapan and Laura who were perfect guests, very pleasant and not at all demanding. They were good company and left the place tidy and clean. They have their own Airbnb so know what it is like to run a place.
Great guest, very friendly. Thank you
A very wonderful guest welcome back any time.
