We loved staying at the apartment. We had our own parking place and separate entry. The apartment was just as described in the pictures and wrtten amenities. The place is well cared for and clean. Gary was an excellent host/owner. On our trip we stayed at 5 different rentals and Gary was most organized, thoughtful and provided the best value. The location is a little out of the way (maybe 5-10 miles) but it still made a great jumping off point for trips to Volcano, Tide pools, Hilo and Hamakua coast. Plus the drive from Pahoa to the beach is a wonderful drive. You drive through two small groves of tall canopy trees along the way and end up very close to the ocean. The layout is perfect for a couple and there is plenty of room. You will need to be able to climb a few stairs. You will love the birds in the dat and the symphony of frogs at night. I would love to stay there again.
