Pure Gold Class
Do yourself a favour if you are heading to Pahoa. Karen & Kerry run an exceptional B & B second to none. Gold Class facilities, delicious breakfast to die for plus fascinating hosts who go out of their way to make your stay memorable. A bit of paradise!

Great host and relaxing night.
A brief one night stay in this high quality purpose built B&B. We enjoyed the cooked breakfast, friendly service and the walk around the gardens. The bed was comfortable for a restful night.
