“So peaceful”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Out of all the places we booked through FlipKey, this place was the most welcoming. The owner made sure to know what times we arrived and left to make sure she can give us a hug goodbye. She was very helpful and suggesting things to do on the Hilo side of the island. As for the place, it was so beautiful staying there. It was our first place with a shared kitchen and dining area and it turned out to be wonderful since we met a Sweden couple staying there also. The place is a little bit out of the way from things but very worth it since the area is so beautiful and peaceful.

Liked best: Definitely the people we met there. Even though we were at the rental for short periods of time, it nice to meet other people from around the world to talk about memorable events.
Liked least: The locations is 20 minutes from the nearest popular stores but very worth it.

Thank you for your kind review. There are restaurants in the quaint Pahoa village only 10 minutes away from our place; also about a mile is the True Value stores that sells almost everything under the sun. I wish I had known what you wanted; I could have recommended other nearby places also. Keaau is only 15 minutes with all the charm of what a city can provide. Regards. Jay

“Beautiful, quiet space”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We chose to stay on the Hilo side of the island and found this gem--totally off the beaten path in a quiet, spacious neighborhood. Very lush and beautiful! Jay was SO friendly and gave us suggestions of things we should see, which turned out to be some of our favorite spots. The room was super clean and fresh, everything seemed new. The kitchen and eating areas were very convenient. I would absolutely recommend this to a friend or someone hoping to stay away from the touristy areas!

“Most beautiful stay during our entire vacation!”
Reviewed 25 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This place has just been wonderful. The hosts (Jay, Vijay and their son Sangeeth) are very nice people, have always been helpful and we got some pretty good recommendations on sightseeing. Each day we got pampered with fresh fruit from their very own garden - delicious...! We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet and beautiful stay in a paradise-like location (only the frogs get a little loud at night). :-) The house is brand new, the rooms and the kitchen are remarkably clean. Don't get confused when driving through nowhere land and struggling with bumpy roads on your way to the house. We also needed a few tries before we finally arrived. It was lovely, thank you very much!

The bumpy roads have now being repaired by the association and the volunteers. The address and the directions are straight forward. It is very easy to find with GPS. For anyone from big city, Orchid land or big island for most part will seem like nowhere land: in fact that is the charm of coming to the big island. Thank you for your kind words that our place was your best stay! We appreciate that. Ours is new business with high quality accommodations and comfort for a very affordable price. Thanks.
