My Time in Paradise
My time at Oliana Guest Cottage was serveral years ago (maybe 2007) spent in the vacation cottage behind the Main House. A great deal for a budget traveler. The location very near Kehena was peaceful and uneventful. Lots of little extras included like beach matts, phone, internet, laundry. A short walk to Kehena Beach allowed me to leave most of my stuff locked up at the cottage and just grab a towel and head out to the beach in the morning. Bed linens and towels were top notch and the place was spot less. Babette the Owner was a dream to deal w/ over the internet. Depending on if she is at the main house or not you'll will be taken care of by her or one of her gracious host/managers. This was a great place to explore lower Puna w/ Pahoa 15 mins. away for groceries. Some minor downsides the guest parking was hard to get in and out (watch the rocks backing up) and the local ants will come into the cottage the minute you turned on the micro wave (guess that's unavoidable in lower Puna). I did have a chance to look in the main house and it was even nicer so consider that option if available for an even nicer
