One of the best things about this house is that it's located less than a minute from Highway 11 on a paved road. This 2 bedroom home is located in a quiet neighborhood halfway between the Volcano Nat'l Park and the bayside town of Hilo (a 20 min. drive both ways). There is a fully equipped kitchen with appliances and supplies (range + oven, refrigerator, microwave, rice cooker, coffee maker, and cookware). Clean and comfortable place to come back to after a day of exploring.
The back half of the property is fenced off and that is where our animals (horses, goat, cow, kittens, and chickens) reside. We ask that our guests be very careful when accessing that area, since open gates could mean that our animals may get loose and wander off.
The guest home is connected to our home by a spacious patio. Feel free to enjoy your morning coffee and/or evening glass of wine outside. You may see us going in and out of our home and around our property. Please free to ask us if you have any questions or need assistance. We are happy to have you as our guests. That being said, we will be sure to respect your privacy and hope that you will respect ours.
If you have children in your party, please let us know in advance what the dynamics are (ages, special needs, etc.). We will need to agree that it would be ok. We LOVE children, however, we want to make sure that everyone is safe when interacting with our animals. Children should only be in the back part of the property with the animals with adult supervision.
Although check-in time is 3pm., we are flexible. Just ask. We provide coffee and something to get you started in the morning.
Please treat our home with care and respect. Use of the house is reserved to registered guests...please, no parties/events without prior approval from the hosts. Please remove your shoes before entering the house. (Hawaiian Style) Smoking is not permitted in the house or patio area.
If you have children in your party, please let us know in advance what the dynamics are (ages, special needs, etc.). We LOVE children and want you to have a great time here, however, we also want everyone to be safe regarding interactions with our animals, mostly when not supervised. Although we love pets, we generally don't allow them to stay.
