Weeks before we were to arrive, we received several helpful e-mails from the owner welcoming us and giving us various bits of useful information. The rental was small, but extremely well arranged and the decor was perfect for a tropical house. We stayed here for 2 full weeks and enjoyed every minute. If we should ever return to Hawaii, we definitely want to stay here again! Pahoa is the closest village but Hilo a little further away has everything you would want in a city.
