Excellent experience...highly recommend
Just great and absolutely wonderful!
Everything was perfect. Very warm and friendly welcome. Wonderful environment. Harmonious furnishing. There is everything you need to feel extremely good. Thanks a lot!
What a fantastic place! Yes, you can say it's remote but that's its allure. We loved its location to Volcano National Park and didn't mind the drive to/from Hilo. The place was spotless with plenty of room in the open living room, dining area and kitchen. We took advantage of the tower to check out the stars at night and the view during the day. The house manager, Shelby, gave us plenty of information for the area including a secluded lava tube (enter at your own risk) that we really enjoyed. Thanks to Steve for owning such a wonderful place and if/when we return to the east side of the Big Island we will want to stay here. Also appreciated the great communication. Only nitpick we had would be that we would prefer more lighting (lumens) in the living room area.
Darrin was a great guest and is welcome back anytime. The light bulbs have been changed and living room is brighter now.
It was smooth from start to finish!
Above & beyond!
Steve, (the owner) called from Italy, to ensure we had everything we needed, if he could be of help in anyway!!
I HIGHLY recommend staying in this home away from home!!
My husband and I stayed here 7 nights. Nice, very clean, spacious, modern and sustainable. Great location, close to Volcano National Park and very privet. Combination of brand new house and beautiful tropical nature. We recommend this property for relaxing, nice vacation.
Amazing, wonderful, outstanding....I could go on and on about how fantastic this property and it's owner Steve is. The house is beautiful, very clean and well set-up. We didn't need for anything. The property is gorgeous! We sat on the porch for hours just talking and enjoying the beauty. We did not want to leave! We island hopped and stayed at 4 different properties while we were in Hawaii and Steve's house was by far our favorite. Steve is a wonderful host. He was there to greet us when we arrived and when we asked for suggestions on where to go and what to do he gave us great information. He's very pleasant to talk to and enjoyable to be around! If you are going to Volcanoes National Park and need a place to stay Steve's house is a must do. You will not be dissappointed!
Teresa and her beautiful family were a joy to host. I like to be invisible to guests unless they need something or have any questions on hikes or drives in the area. They seemed to have a wonderful time and are always welcome.
GPS seems to be putting visitors at the property next to mine or even on the wrong street. To avoid getting lost with possibly no phone reception please read: The google map on this site IS NOT CORRECT. Please use the following instructions: Coming from either north (Hilo) or south (Kona) direction you will be on the Volcano Highway 11. Turn at the 24 mile marker on Alii Anella st. (only one way to turn). Take Alii Anella to end. Turn right on Alaula st. Go to end of street. Turn left at end (Puolani st). Go slow here, people have driven past my driveway and gotten lost. Driveways are rustic, more like jeep trails. My driveway is the fourth on right, green gate will be opened or closed. You will see the white address sign 11 2993. If the gate looks locked you will need to stop and pull chain over the post. Push gate in towards the home until it touches the tree. After pulling in please then close gate behind you. Drive in and park in the carport. There is a red sign that says dog into the driveway but there is no dog. The house keeper will meet you at the door or I will come out and let you in and tell you about the home, give you the key and answer any questions or concerns.
