Unique place in a unique setting...all past reviews are just true...you don't want to leave this oasis with its fabulous exterior and interior. On top, Robert is a very caring host who is eager to guarantee you a perfect stay.
Excellent Airbnb accommodation. Robert made us feel very welcome even before we arrived. Upon arrival he was there and extended his hospitality further by giving us a tour of this beautiful property, as well as making us feel very welcome there. We loved the guest house, and it is much more roomy than the pictures may show. Tasteful decorations, and a mini library of great books. The pool was refreshing after a day of being out and about. The neighborhood is quiet, and the garden-like property is so relaxing and private. We found the place to be supplied with everything we could want! A salad spinner! Nice knives, and All-Clad cookware! We thoroughly enjoyed the location of this guest house, so near recent lava flows, and local people with stories. The warm ponds and tide ponds for snorkeling. Just watching the big blue waves at the shore. There is so much to do in the Puna area. Nearby farmer's markets afford easy access to fresh foods.
Staying at Robert's house was amazing. Robert not only offers you a fantastic home to stay, but some of the best hospitality Hawaii has to offer. Robert kept the line of communication available during our stay and offered useful information on things to do in the area. The home is definitely a must see in person and I would definitely recommend Robert's home to anyone. I will definitely be staying again and bringing more family with me as well because it is a pretty spacious property, private location, and a spectacular view. Robert really made our anniversary a special one.
We had a fantastic time staying in the guest house of Robert. It was so special to be in the middle of the lava... The view, the architecture of the guest and main house, the sounds of the nature outside, the water dripping, the sweet host, professional cookware in the kitchen, nice architecture books etc etc. We loved it! This was one of the most special AirBnb places where we have stayed. Thanks!
Great House. Robert made sure had everything we needed. Great for a family trip to see the lava and volcanoes.
Wonderful! Robert is a lovely host. Beautiful space, love the area, this is one of our favorite parts of the big island.
Our time at Roberts house was such a blast. The house is quite a lot bigger than it appears in his photos, which is wonderful but the layout is very communal and made for a really fun time with my family. We did lots of cooking, swimming and reading and enjoyed exploring the neighborhood. There is a beautiful local beach minutes from the house and farmers markets and fun activities close by for anyone who gets stir crazy. Robert is very available to help out with anything. We had an incredible stay and will definitely be back.
Wow, this spot was incredible. You're in the hippy part of Hawaii, incredibly remote and looking out across a lava rock field. The house is stunning with a comfortable pool to lounge by. The BBQ was great for cooking. Robert was very friendly and helpful. The main house shares the pool area, but we were lucky no one was staying there so it felt very private. Would stay again in a minute!
The gorgeous modern house is as described. A very stylish modern one big bedroom with sourounding windows based on an old lava flow from 1955. Very spectacluar. Robert welcomes you and is always reach- and approachable for anything you need.
A very quite and safe environment, with garden and a shared pool with the 2 bedroom house next. It takes about 1h drive from there to the Volcano National Park due to the fact that Hwy 130 is blocked by lava from one of the recent eruptions.
My family and I had the most wonderful (although way too brief) stay at Robert's guest house. The guest house and the main house as well (where we plan to stay the next time we visit Hawaii) are architectural gems. Every object and every design touch are incredible and the place is also just perfectly functional, comfortable and serene. We had been in Hawaii for two weeks already when we arrived and it was the best night's sleep and the most relaxing few days of our trip. Robert is the kindest and most respectful and responsive host we've ever had in our two years as regular airbnb users. Completely available but unobtrusive and I enjoyed all of our conversations. We started our trip on the Kona side of the island and a great beachy time, but I wish someone had clued me in (or I had paid better attention to the guide books) that the Pahoa area is incredibly beautiful, interesting and has a very sophisticated community of people. The coastline and the beaches are amazing. The lava heated hot pools right on the ocean were really nice too. We'll be back!
I enjoyed hosting Robert on his recent trip to The BIG ISLAND.
The booking went smooth & easy.
Hope you stay longer next time, Robert !!
Very sweet guests! We loved their Ukulele tunes :)
