Quiet, Beautiful location away from it all
We arrived at the house after midnight after a flight delay and Bob was kind enough to stay awake and make sure that we got into the property before he went to sleep. The property itself is great and sits on an old lava flow, which makes it look like you've landed on Mars, it is really something to see. The location is great for checking out the south and east sides of the island, and we took advantage by going into Volcano Park twice and exploring the Hilo area on another day. There is a semi-private beach at Pohue Bay which you can hike to from the house on a rough trail. It is beautiful, but be aware that the hike back to the house is about 3 miles at an uphill grade and can get very warm in the afternoon, so take water and sturdy shoes if you attempt that hike (it is well worth the effort). People should be aware that if you are looking for resort type amenities and restaurants, you will not find that here, but if you are looking for a place that is quiet, remote and has good access to the south shore, then this is the place to be. We didn't have a chance to use the pool or hot tub during our visit since we were constantly out exploring the Island, but both looked very nice. Thanks again for everything, and we can't wait to return to the Big Island.
