We had a very pleasant time at this house overlooking the Laupahoehoe Point. Everything about the place was ideal... location was great (far enough from Hilo, but close enough), views and weather were perfect, has a complete kitchen, wireless internet (that was a pleasant surprise), cable TV, comfortable bedrooms, a really sweet lanai overlooking the ocean. The little park down at the point has an interesting history and a dynamic relationship with the ocean.
We made day-trips to the volcano, to the numerous waterfalls nearby, and to several beaches and local parks.
We made dinner each night in the kitchen, and we felt right at home. I would highly recommend this place to families who are looking to avoid the expense and general hassle of hotel-living.
