4/10 Fair

Unique location; beware bathroom access
This was a unique experience and setting. The listing should make clear that not only is there a shared bathroom but access to it requires going down a stairwell For those of us who need that access at night, not easy.

8/10 Very good

Our stay at this Guesthouse was a wonderful highlight of our stay on the Big Island of Hawaii, and I am so glad we chose it. My husband and I found it to be an interesting place. The room, and the open areas of the guest house were nicely furnished and decorated, and provided a deep sense of peace and calm. There were little thoughtful offerings for each guest including ear plugs for the sounds of night frogs, and birds. However those sounds were very nice and relaxing, and I personally cannot imagine blocking out these sweet sounds. The manager was accommodating and friendly. I think Expedia should be more clear about what a Guest house means, so that travelers know what to expect in terms of shared space. There was no A/C and it was very damp. However in terms of temperature, A/C was not needed. The only real concern was the road leading to the Guesthouse. We came in after dark, and were very concerned with the narrow road which was over run by the thick forest and trees and vines on both sides. The road was not paved and there were holes our little rental car struggled to get through. There was also a lot of debris, perhaps from an earlier storm, and our car picked up some of this debris, causing some minor damage. This is probably out of the Guesthouse’s control, but until we pulled into the well appointed parking lot and were reassured of the Guesthouse’s good accommodations we were put off.

6/10 Good

The property is beautifully located. The amenities were exactly as described. I will return, for sure. What I do advise is that you immediately clarify with the property regarding your accommodations after booking through Expedia. When I booked Expedia booked me as a queen guest room at a higher price, when I received my email the property staff informed me that Expedia requested the hammocks, not the queen room I had booked on their website.

An Experience in Itself
So happy to have found this place. Quite an unique experience to sleep in hammocks and share communal bathrooms, kitchen, and living space. Beautiful view of the ocean and not far from Hilo if you want dinner in a restaurant. Love the commitment to the environment and a lower-cost alternative to an otherwise expensive island. It is very European concept though American-owned. Hammocks were fairly comfortable and despite a lot of rain we stayed dry in our cabana. We are 60-years old though former scout leaders. Get the deluxe cabana, which is closer to the bathrooms.
