Volcano lovers' romantic getaway
We spent 9 nights at Lemoncello in May of 2015 and enjoyed our stay. We'd really rate this 3.5, but left a 4 here as we needed full star ratings. The pros: - It is very private, secluded, intimate, and cozy. You don’t see or hear the neighbors at all. We recommend Lemoncello for romantic getaways for nature lovers. - It comes with an equipped kitchen, so you can cook your own meals if you want. Great for people with food allergies or special diets. - It is much less expensive than a hotel, and you get more room, and more supplies than soap and shampoo. (There’s a good selection of DVDs available, but no wi-fi. We were able to get on Verizon and T-Mobile cellular no problem.) The cons: - It’s on a dirt road that’s half a mile from the paved road, which is 3.5 miles from the main highway. Once at the highway you’re not in a town; Hilo is about half an hour away from the house. Other items of note: - There is no actual bedroom door, only a curtain. If you’re a couple alone, this is fine. If you’re traveling with someone else who’s staying on the couch, be aware of privacy issues. - If you’re going to stay anywhere in this part of Hawaii, you need to like nature. We happened to like the koki frogs and bird calls, but others find it irritating. If your plane lands at night the frogs are the first thing you’ll hear loudly greeting you. - If you’re going to Hawaii for the beaches, you’re completely in the wrong place. - If you’re going to Hawaii for the active volcano, this is a good place, as it is sort of central to the volcano and to Hilo. - It rains a lot. Mostly at night, but sometimes in the morning. It can also be cool outside, especially up the volcano. We were glad we brought sweatshirts. Overall we were pleased with all the amenities and saved a lot - thank you!
