Need to know:

We are located in a rural, agricultural area, please be aware what that may offer. Adjoining properties host grazing cattle. Feral pigs are abundant and can be vocal. Chickens, roosters, ducks, geese, and others contribute to the polyphony.

Pets: Guests are requested to not bring pets with them, (we respectfully ask you coordinate PRIOR to booking if you desire to bring a pet/service animal) but we are owned by TWO

awesome boxers and a cat. While they have freedom to roam, we prefer they not be invited into guest quarters. Most likely, they’ll look for you in the morning. Because of them, we ask you to double check that the gates are closed when entering or exiting the property.

Smoking: We are serious about being a non smoking property. That starts at the county road as you turn onto our drive. Of course, most rental cars are also non smoking so that’s a help. We would sincerely ask that if this presents a problem that you find a place you can more fully enjoy. Violators will be asked to leave - immediately, and billed accordingly if room needs additional cleaning.

Weather: Big Island Hawaii boasts 11 of the 13 climate zones in the world, each with unique ecosystems and weather characteristics. Elevation, pressure variations, rainfall, wind and topography combine to create distinctive microclimates within those climate zones. Climates you may encounter include the humid tropical zones, from sea level to 450 feet, the arid and semi-arid zones, the temperate zones, and the Alpine zones, chilly areas above 10,500 feet.This is not the Hawaii of Waikiki postcards. Rain is what keeps us lush and green. Our normal year rainfall is 120-140 inches. While mostly at night, this changes during the year. Our local temps range from a low of 59 to a high of 80. We have our own Davis weather station on site and accessible via web or iphone app for current conditions. For anyone interested in historical data regarding temperature, rainfall etc, please visit Weather Underground Link station KHININOL2

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

David and Sophie made our 10 day stay super! What tremendous views of the ocean and hills of the wet side of the island. It was a quick drive into Hilo so it was easy to get places but still out in the country for quiet sleep and spectacular views of the stars.

Beautiful and peaceful

This is a wonderful place to stay. David and Sophie were so helpful and made us feel so welcome. The view is restorative, and so is the swimming pool - which we used a lot and loved.

Wunderschön. ..

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit. Alles war perfekt. David und seine Frau haben uns bei allemir geholfen (unsere Koffer gingen auf dem Flug verloren). Sie haben uns unterstützt, diese innerhalb kurzer Zeit wieder zu bekommen.

Der Pool, das ganze Anwesen, hilft nach den Wanderungen (Vulkane ) Erholung zu finden. Es war eine super schöne Zeit. ....Die Hunde sind einfach wahnsinnig lieb und freundlich. Alles war gut....

Wir können diesen Ort nur empfehlen. ..
