Serenity and Privacy
We loved our stay here. Besides the birds, frogs, the distant surf, and the wind rustling the palm fronds, you rarely hear anything else. We were out a lot but had morning coffee on the huge lanai overlooking the garden & ocean and sat out there at night later than we should with a glass of wine, star-gazing and having long talks. It was awesome that no one could hear us so we didn't have to worry about disturbing others with our conversations. The peace and quiet was just what we needed. Mat the caretaker was friendly and easily available by text or phone. Our provider is ATT so we had service. There is also wifi. Being off the grid was fine with minor inconveniences. Our phones & cameras took a long time to charge and we usually had to finish the phones in the car. And no laundry. There's no air conditioning and for us personally, that would be an issue during the hotter parts of the year. In January we had perfect temperatures of 65-75. Kitchen adequately supplied. No coffee maker so I brought mine. There's a BBQ grill that we didn't use. Bathroom is heavenly - spacious, good shower, hot water quickly. Bed very comfortable. Close to Pahoa town with several restaurants. We chose the location to be close to the boat ramp for our early morning lava viewing boat. Other places of interest nearby are Lava Tree state park and the hot pond. We went to Uncle Robert's Wednesday night market event. Absolutely packed, if you go go early, cars were parked in all directions at least 1/2 mile out. We ate then left as we didn't come to Puna for a crowd scene. We felt welcome and slept like babies with all the fresh air! Come & enjoy.
