This is a great studio room for a single or couple. I had a very enjoyable stay and Christine was very sweet and made me feel very welcome. The dogs and cat were also very friendly! You also get a nice ocean overview from the generous number of windows.
You are only a few minutes from downtown Hilo and the Botanical gardens are pretty much right on the other side of the highway. Akaka falls is not far away either.
This room is in a portion of the main house, and it was nice and quiet, 3 miles off the highway up at the end of a drive. I got the impression that the room is a labor of love in progress...there are some incomplete portions (like the concrete floor, which I assume will get finished soon), but most of the work is finished nicely. You can currently do a little cooking in the room if you want, however the planned outdoor kitchen should be very nice when it is finished. (I felt right at home anyway--I've got projects going on at home too!) I hope to visit again once the work is complete!
