Comfortable and We would Return
It was a great size for 2 people. We had a small ocean view that was beautiful. The bed was king size and very comfortable. Elfie the host and owner was very accommodating and friendly. We went during a hot time and trade winds were low, but we used fans to stay as cool as possible. She had fresh cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit, and Maui Chips placed in the unit upon our arrival and a couple cold drinks in the refrigerator. It was a very nice touch. The unit itself and the grounds were very clean and inviting. There was a BBQ outdoors which we used. I like to cook when on vacation. The kitchen was small but had everything I needed. The Geckos were friendly and cute that came inside the unit for their visits. They are harmless and beautiful, a part of the island. So expected:). The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet. The Wi-fi was spotty, but she let my husband hook up his router, so all was good. I would recommend this property for no more than 2 people. The unit is a short walk to a park at the cliffs where you can see and hear the ocean. Its about a 30 minute drive to Hilo and 15 to 20 minute drive to Pahoa depending on where you go in Pahoa. Pahoa has a great place called Ahalanui Park aka Pu’ala’a County Park. It's a luke warm giant hot tub with clear beautiful water and the park has places to picnic. Its a part of the ocean there and is heated by underground volcanic heat. We didn't eat out much, but The New York Pizza restuarant was delicious and Luquins Mexican restaurant was pretty good too, both in Pahoa. Hilo Bay has nice small beaches around it that you can swim in and relax as well as areas to picnic and pitch your small shade tent. We ate at Ponds in Hilo near Carl's Smith Beach. The food is a little high priced but was YOM!
