Ein außergewöhliches Erlebnis en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

4,8 Último comentario publicado el mayo 13, 2016

Wir waren zuerst ein bisschen skeptisch aber was wir dann vorfanden und erlebten war wirklich außergewöhnlich. Angefangen von der Zimmereinrichtung über die Lage und nicht zuletzt die herausragende Freundlichkeit und den Superservice von Raven. Nichts, aber auch gar nichts fehlte. Raven erfüllte jeden Wunsch. Selbst wenn wir zum Frühstück Thunfisch essen wollten, wir hätten es nur vorher sagen müssen und sie hätte ihn frisch besorgt und zubereitet. Tolle Tipps für die Erkundung der Umgebung. Tolle Atmosphäre, alles offen, natürlich Türen und Fenster mit Fliegengitter zu. Keine Klimaanlage, was auch wirklich nicht nötig ist. Schon spannend abends die Natur zu erleben, den Regen prasseln zu hören, das Rauschen der Brandung. Auch das quaken der Frösche, was keineswegs störend ist. Wir sind trotzdem immer schnell eingeschlafen. Einfach naturnah und klasse. Wir können Raven und das Ma'ukele Lodge jedem nur wärmstens empfehlen. Wir waren zuerst ein 4 Tage auf der Kona Seite dann drei Tage bei Raven. Heute würden wir es umgekehrt machen und länger bei Raven bleiben. Bei Raven selbst sieht und spürt man noch, dass sie "ein Kind" der Flower Power Zeit ist.

Magical beach house stay with great hostess en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

4,8 Último comentario publicado el marzo 02, 2016

My husband and I stayed at Raven's place last week. She and Mark were amazing, warm, friendly and welcoming people who made us feel at home from the moment we stepped into the door, and had some great tips for us to explore the area. The house is right on the beach (although the now hardened lava flow took over most of the beach, but there is still some left to enjoy), surrounded by a lush tropical garden. I really loved Raven's decorating skills. The house feels very creative and bohemian. Every part of the house is thoughtfully decorated with an eclectic mix of colors, fabrics, and accessories brought from her travels, but still feels very balanced and put together. Raven was a great hostess. She made us yummy breakfasts in the morning, served on the lanai (deck), overlooking the garden and the ocean. We stayed in the Lava room, which was in the main house, so we shared the living space and deck with Raven and Mark, but had our own bathroom. If you prefer more privacy, ask for one of the other rooms. There's no airco (there's fans) or TV, but who needs that if you can watch the ocean :). Mahalo Raven, for a great stay! We will hopefully be back soon.

Hippie Paradise en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

4,6 Último comentario publicado el febrero 26, 2016

Raven was a fantastic host, and the room, including the outside shower and tub, were spotless and charming. Perhaps most dramatic was how a flow of pahoehoe lava went right down the beach beyond the back yard. It is a dramatic location.

A fun place in a fun area of Hawaii en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

5 Último comentario publicado el febrero 14, 2016

We loved our stay at the Ma’ukele Lodge. We stayed in the suite with our private entry and bath. The outdoor private tub and shower made for a truly tropical setting. The relatively secluded location near the “end of the road” made this an adventure. The dark starry nights, lava covered beach, and sounds of crashing waves were great. Raven’s breakfasts were delicious. She and Mark were wonderful hosts. Their interesting conversation and stories made for a unique stay. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Mahalo.

It was hard to find the place at night. GPS does not show the place on the map. So we had a hard time finding the place on the first day. It was a bit far from everything else. The lady owner was warm and friendly and easy to talk to. The breakfast was delicious.

Heaven on Earth! New Life/ Land right on the Water! en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

4,6 Último comentario publicado el enero 12, 2016

This is the most special place we have ever stayed! Raven & Mark made us feel like family and went above & beyond to ensure our vacation was incredible. The grounds were spectacular, with the amazing waterfront a few steps away. The water is rough here, so not the place for swimming, but the PERFECT spot to take in incredible sunrises, and shooting stars at night! Mark gave us maps daily of insiders spots for snorkeling, swimming and sightseeing that was exactly what we were looking for. This place is a nature lovers dream! If you are looking for a resort type experience, this is not the place, its a regular house on incredible grounds-- the outside/nature is what makes place so special thhat we can't wait to go back!

Unique and Creative en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

5 Último comentario publicado el noviembre 19, 2015

This is a B&B with character--a lot of thought and imagination has gone into the rooms, especially the Hawaiian Suite, where you feel like you're living in your own private jungle. We never slept better and felt transported into some kind of dream. Raven and Mark are warm, "real" hosts who get to know their guests as individuals and help them discover the things that fit their interests. It's a perfect place to really experience the wild Puna coast.

Very Special Experience en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

4,8 Último comentario publicado el octubre 12, 2015

We stayed at Ma'ukele Lodge as part of our honeymoon. Raven and Mark did an amazing job to make us feel comfortable and welcome in their home. They were both so kind and caring. Raven's breakfasts were extremely delicious, and Mark made us a health-lovers smoothie. To truly experience this amazing lodge, you must stay at least 2 nights. This will give you time to truly take in everything- the outdoor shower/bath, black lava beach, Raven's book collection, the special treats and teas kept in your room, and so much more! Thank you so much for having us!

There were quite a few places to stay for this trip. I am absolutely glad I picked to stay with Raven and Mark. They were awesome hosts, and I don't think I would have found better on the island. If you get a chance to visit, you are winning if you stay here. For the first time in all the travels that I've been on, I definitly plan to remain friends with them. Great job guys.

A great experience...fantastic host en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

3,8 Último comentario publicado el septiembre 11, 2015

Although they had water leaking problems and it was one of the hottest summers ever due to the several storms that passed the island, the entire experience was so unique and interesting that the one night has become the highlight of our week on the big island. We can't stop talking about the comfortable, relaxing evening on the lanai where I was able to enjoy a cigar, a nice drink and the company of our hosts and other visitors to the lodge. That was only topped by the fantastic breakfast that Raven served along with the free entertainment from the geckos. We also got a great recommendation for dinner in downtown Pahoa at Kaleo's Restaurant. We highly recommend this restaurant. Just keep in mind that although Ma'ukele is very close to the Volcano National Park, it is still 40 miles from the entrance to the park.

This lodge was just beautiful and so peaceful. The views of the water while eating breakfast makes this lodge the perfect getaway from all the stressers of the real world! The outside bathroom was the perfect touch to make our stay that much more authentic to the Big Island. I would definitely stay here again when I return. Thank you Raven and Mark for being such amazing hosts!

Real Hawai'i en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

4,8 Último comentario publicado el junio 18, 2015

This place is exactly where you want to stay if you want real Hawaii far away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki beach. The suite offers indoor/outdoor Hawaian style living with large screened windows allowing the breeze to blow through all day and night. With an option of an outdoor shower amongst the thick rain forest and flowering trees. Raven was an excellent house, and paid great attention to pour needs and made us very comfortable. Her breakfast made of local fruits, most of which were grown on her property was exquisite. Mark's knowledge of Hawaiin culture, botany, and surfing are second to none. We got an education in local plants and invasive species, Hawaian culture and politics and of course surfing. Mark took us surfiing to a local spot (not ao much for beginners) and we had an awesome time in the large surf!!! Raven and Mark have everything you need for your vacation. They even lend you surf, and snorkle equipment...and anything else you may need to enjoy your stay.

A Wonderful Experience en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

4,6 Último comentario publicado el marzo 02, 2015

We had a wonderful stay here in Feb.2015. Raven and Mark are very welcoming and are extremely accommodating. I don't think you could find better hosts. Ravens breakfasts on the deck were always great. The tour Mark took us on to the small tide pools etc. was a highlight of our trip. His knowledge of the local area, plant and sea life is excellent. I would highly recommend Ma'ukele to anyone who wants to experience the real Hawaii.

One of a Kind BnB! en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

5 Último comentario publicado el enero 17, 2015

We stayed Dec 31 - Jan 3 and had a wonderful time during our stay. Raven and Mark were very accommodating and informative of the island and Hawaii. We stayed in the suite with the outdoor bathroom and it was absolutely beautiful! There is so much room and the garden is so serene! Raven sets up the room to make you feel as comfortable as possible with a welcome basket of fresh fruit and other snacks, a fridge with water and juice and other amenities that I never would have expected from a BnB. Mark is very passionate about Hawaii, he shared many stories with us and provided several hand drawn maps with locations to visit and things to do! It was so nice to have someone local provide us so much information about the area as we were only on that side of the island for 3 days where the rest of the stay was on the Kona side. My husband and I were so fortunate to have all of this information to fully explore that part of the island! I wished we would have spent more time on this side of the island as it was my favorite side of the island based on the different landscape! it is absolutely beautiful! I would recommend anyone to this BnB! If you are not so sure about the outdoor bathroom, there is also a bathroom in the main area that you can use. It is definitely worth the experience at least once to stay in this suite! I hope to visit again soon!

Kalapana Market en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

4,8 Último comentario publicado el marzo 30, 2014

We enjoyed our upper floor stay. The property is nicely landscaped and the blue ocean is only steps away. We selected this location as it is ocean front and about 1/2 mile from the Kalapana Wednesday night market (family friendly) that goes from 5pm to 9pm. If you haven't been to the Wednesday night market, this is a must do! Excellent Hawaiian music, hula, food vendors, jewelry / flower / souvenir / incense / and the vendor list goes on. The town of Pahoa (off the main road) is also special, especially the restaurants. We would definitely return and we enjoyed our hosts. The bed is very comfortable and the sheets are lovely. Our private bath was equally nice with hot water on demand. Our hosts provided snacks and water bottle in our room. In the morning we enjoyed coffee, papaya with berries, yoghurt and pancakes. Our hosts were relaxed, engaging and helpful. We look forward to returning.

A unique experience en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

5 Último comentario publicado el enero 15, 2014

We were so fortunate to find the Ma'ukele Lodge near Kalapana on the Big Island. We stayed there for two weeks and felt very much welcomed and at home thanks to our hosts Raven and Mark. The lodge is in a quiet and beautiful setting with beautiful views of the ocean and a newly formed lava/black sand beach. The region is lush with greenery and fresh fruit is abundant. Every morning we were treated to a fabulous, healthy breakfast (provided by Raven, our lovely host) on a beautiful deck with ocean views. Raven and Mark went above and beyond to make our stay memorable and special. Raven's attention to detail was appreciated. Additionally, she is a fascinating person with a unique background. You won't find this local knowledge and attention at resort hotels or big B&Bs. Mark took us a on a few tours of the area including a generous drive up Mauna Kea (where we took the little hike to the peak and to the permafrost lake). We feel like we have made new friends and will definitely go back. If you want to explore the active volcano, this is a great place to stay. At Ma'ukele Lodge you can hike over lava flows into old Kalapana, visit the interesting Painted Church (on foot), explore the many sights to be had along route 137 (also good for runners and cyclists) and you are very close to the spectacular Pahoa town. Some people want to be closer to the highway, but we liked being a bit more isolated. It was a true getaway.

Magnifique! en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

5 Último comentario publicado el diciembre 25, 2013

I would just have one word to say: "WOW"! This place is so amazing, my only dream is to go back there. Let's start by the place: Ma'ukele Lodge is a lovely wooden blue house in the middle of cocounut trees and all kinds of exotic plants. The house is right next to the ocean, you just have to cross the beautiful garden and you arrive on lava fields where waves are crushing (it's too rough for swimming). And the room: you must have the Hawaiian Suite with its confortable beds and with its outdoor bathroom and shower. Being able to shower in the middle of exotic plants, birds singing and coqui frogs at night (but still with privacy) is a wonderful experience! We felt sooo relaxed at this place and so close to the nature, it was just perfect! And finally, but not least, the hosts, Raven, and Mark were so nice, welcoming and helpful. We sat with them on the deck watching the ocean and chatting. Mark told us everything there is to do around the island and told us great stories on Hawaiian people. Raven is a perfect host, cooking delicious breakfasts (indeed the banana pancakes are delicious) and leaving sweets and flowers in our room so that we felt even more welcome at their place. Every other place we slept on this and other islands in Hawaii after staying here felt so neutral then... Thank you Raven & Mark for sharing thie piece of paradise with us and others.

Paradise and Renewal found at Maukele Lodge and the Volcano Kiluea en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

4,4 Último comentario publicado el septiembre 16, 2013

My husband and I began our 10 day sojourn in Paradise at the Maukele Lodge (InnKaimu). Near Kohala. Our Renewal and revival of souls began almost the minute our feet landed in this peaceful place. Raven is an artistic eclectic decorator, and a very good cook and thoughtful hostess. She makes the inn special; we stayed in her best room for 3 nights and the outdoor, secluded tropical bathroom took us a little getting used to--at least 5 minutes (we especially enjoyed it at night under a Milky Way of millions of stars and the chorus of Coqui frogs). Breakfast on the spacious deck with full ocean view and tiny gecko companions was delicious, peaceful, and memorable....the Lava hiking and black sand beach, the beautiful abundance of tropical fruit, flowers, birds, and the Trade Winds blowing in regularly made it a very memorable and pleasant stay. It is also very near the newest vent where Lava empties into the ocean (via the world-famous shield volcano, Kiluea) and many Lava Tours are available. Very Nearby are snorkel beaches and a thermal pool--we swam it every morning...we plan to return soon.

Wonderful Hawaiian Experience en Ma'ukele Lodge (Kaimu, Hawaii)

4,6 Último comentario publicado el julio 20, 2013

Stayed July 14-18, 2013..My family and I (2 kids and husband) stayed here for 4 nights. Raven was a wonderful hostess. She provided us a delicious breakfast on the Lanai every morning. We had little geckos visit us every morning. They were fun to watch and very entertaining. Our room was wonderful. The outdoor bathroom was different for us but we thoroughly enjoyed it. The frogs at night are loud but Raven provided earplugs if needed. The room was always cleaned daily with fresh linens and towels. Raven's decor is cool The location of this bed and breakfast is awesome. You can walk out to the ocean and sit on the sand/lava to watch waves crash (very quiet spot). The place is on a road that is loaded with sites to visit i.e. tide pools, light house, and snorkel tide pool. There is a great cafe down the street that has great food and a Farmer's Market on Wed. night (fun to do). This was a wonderful place to stay to truly get a tropical Hawaiian feel. If ever in Hawaii again, we will definitely go back to stay at this Bed & Breakfast. Thank you Raven, for a wonderful stay.
