My girlfriend and I had a great time at Amanda's place. It was a nice and quiet neighbourhood, very close to the sea, where you can see whales, if you are lucky (we weren't, ohhhhhhh).
The place was very clean and the outside shower was amazing. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking!
Amanda was very kind and funny, on the first day she showed us a secret little beach, which was amazing, so everybody who reads this, don't be afraid, let her kidnap you, it's going to be awesome.
Also it was very nice sitting outside at the backyard with her and having a little chat! All in all a very nice place.
The house was very cute and comfy, in a quiet neighborhood. Pictures are accurate. We never met Amanda---she was away that weekend, but she left us a key & instructions. We were hardly there, it was really a place to crash. Which is good because the internet information she provided when the reservation was confirmed didn't work---network name wasn't showing up and password didn't work with any of the networks listed. Sent her several messages about it and never got a response. So checking in for the flight was a bit problematic
We had a really good time.
A good place to stay.
We stayed two nights with Amanda, regretfully we were so busy we didn't get to see her except when we arrived for a few minutes, but her room and house....beautiful! The room is gorgeous, gigantic, and has a great island feel. The surrounding foliage, the location, and the sounds of the indigenous wildlife were an extra bonus! All in all, it was a perfect stay for our first trip to the big island. We appreciate your hospitality and would recommend Amanda's place to anyone that wanted to explore the east side of the island, or both sides as we did!
Amanda was a great host. She is very welcoming, helpful and friendly. She also has a good knowledge of the Big Island. Good place to stay for seeing the island, especially the East side.
I found Amanda to be helpful and knowledgable and went out of her way to make me feel at home. If you're looking for a place in the puna area, you might chose this bnb as its close to all the beaches snorkelling and hikes. Has a cute puppy too.
We staid at Amanda's house for 4 nights and both the room and Amanda were great. She took the time to hang out with us in the evening and told us a lot about the island. Most days we ended up doing things she recommended to us. The house itself is really nice and Amanda share avocado, passion fruit and lemons that grew in her garden with us which was delicious.
The room is way bigger than the picture says and was clean. She has one super cute dog and dogsitted two others while we were there but she made sure they were outside until we confirmed that we didn't mind them in the house. Amanda made sure they would not go in our room, though.
The house is in the middle of nowhere but that certainly has its charm and there are things to do close by - e.g amazing snorkeling in the tide pools.
Over all it was a really nice stay.
It was an unforgettable and pleasant time stay at Amanda's home. The room is very decently decorated, also very big, even twice as the picture described(I guess). I like the bed most, not only how comfortable it is, but it's natural style. The most wonderful thing was that in the morning I waked up surrounded by plants and all kinds of birds' voice, it made me feel like a paradise to live here. Most of all, Amanda is a very nice, friendly and warm hearted host, we had great talk at night, her suggestions for my travel schedule were very useful and made my trip more fun. I will definitely recommend Amanda's place to everyone who want to travel to Hawaii Island. Thanks everything for what Amanda did. Mahalo!
Amanda's place was very clean and cute. Cleanliness is extremely important to me and I felt very comfortable in her home. The room was big, the bed was comfortable, and the area that the house resided in was peaceful and friendly. Amanda was really nice and accommodating; my boyfriend and I really enjoyed talking with her during our stay. We would definitely recommend staying with her if you're in the area!
Amanda made me feel welcome from the moment I entered the door. The place was very clean and presented just as it is in the pictures. The location is located about a 25 minute drive from downtown Hilo and it's close to a lot of unique parks and beaches. It's also good proximity for hiking at volcano. Water pressure in the bathroom was good and kitchen was made available. Amanda is full of knowledge about Hawaii and happy to share.
Amanda stayed in our guest cottage for almost a week. Super self sufficient guests. Quiet. Didn't hear a peep out of her. Very friendly when we chat over the airbnb thread. She extended her original booking and left money "stashed" on the back deck for us exactly where she said she would and where it would be.
She was cool about our annoying dogs barking on the Full Moon night.
Would be happy to have her again.
Amanda and Sid were a pleasure to have stay with us! Amanda is very sweet and we definitely enjoyed their stay.
Amanda and Sid was the absolute greatest guess. Although Amanda was very shy, she opened up after getting to know her. We were up till almost midnight eating chocolate covered strawberries and talking story. They were very clean, courteous, respectful and they love Grizzly. I would be happy to host them in the future and they are more than welcome to stay here, anytime.
