Beautifully located and easy to find. Lovely views...we enjoyed our stay very much.

Lovely place to stay on the Big Island of Hawaii

4.2 on June 08, 2014

Our week-long stay here was lovely. It was a great location to anchor our trip. We enjoyed multiple excursions to local beaches for snorkeling, and also spent several days hiking the rugged north shore terrain. It was great to come back to our "base camp" after our excursions, to enjoy a warm shower and sipping tea in the pretty living room.

A very nice place

Hidden gem on Big Island

4.6 on March 14, 2014

We arrived at our room to be met with a fresh loaf of bread, fruit, yogurt and milk. The view of the ocean was fabulous. We barbequed on our lanaii. This is bed and breakfast with separated living areas. We wil definitely stay here again. Also, very reasonably priced.
