Beautiful, spacious, comfortable accomodations
My stay at Eliot’s guest home was wonderful. The space was just as advertised, even better! From the moment I arrived I was struck by the beauty and serenity of the environment, both inside and out, with every detail pleasing, from the sculptures and intricate designs, to the rich color schemes, and solid, comfortable furniture. The guest house is its own separate dwelling---private, spacious and clean. It was beautifully decorated and furnished and convenient to many activities like the lava flow, natural coastlines, volcanically heated thermal pools, and the local town of Pahoa. I stayed there after taking a lava boat tour, and it provided the perfect ending to a perfect day. The living space was warm and inviting, and I immediately felt at home. I had traveled to Hawaii alone and felt completely safe there. Eliot greeted me when I arrived and provided a quick introduction to the features of the home, gave great suggestions for activities and places to eat, and then graciously retired to his own home on the property. He was helpful but unobtrusive. I loved the sense of solitude and proximity to the natural environment provided by the design of this guest house. The screen windows allowed natural sounds to permeate the air. It was wonderful to hear the rain and breeze rustling through the trees as I fell asleep. The bed was large and comfortable and I got a great night's sleep. In the morning I sat on the patio sipping my coffee and enjoying the lush plants and vibrant sunlight streaming through the trees--- so relaxing. The bathroom, while attached to the house, is accessed from the outside. It is an interesting design feature, and the roof overhang protects you from any rain. The bath house is its own separate cozy little structure a few paces away from the house, set amidst lush foliage and a small water garden. I really enjoyed this feature. You have the option of keeping the blinds closed for added privacy; however, I opened them up to allow natural light and greenery to surround me as I showered, and the cool breeze floating through the screened windows caressed my skin while I dried off. It was delightful! Definitely a good experience of local Hawaii. I wish I had booked more nights at this place as it was by far the best accommodation I had on this side of the island. Thanks, Eliot, for creating such a nurturing and comforting environment for your guests!
