This is a beautiful setting, a house thoughtfully and tastefully set up for a wonderful time in Paradise and Paradise Park.
Access to the beach, grounds replete with flowers and fruit, safe, secluded; yet with easy access to Hilo and its rich history, culture and indigenous flavors,
A visit here is not complete without paying respects to Pele at nearby Volcanoes National Park for breathtaking views of a live volcano, walks either easy or challenging through moonscape craters, lava flows, forests and sulfur steam vents (say hello to the wandering Nene).
The visitor center in he National Park has substance rather than kitsch and enjoy probably my favorite gallery in all of Hawaii -- the Volcano Art Center (VAC).
And, oh, the rainbows and turtles lollygagging about on the pehoehoe rocks!
Get a sense of Puna region before coming, so you know what to expect. Hale Ipo will then be a place with life-changing powers.
Ha -- breath
Wai -- life giving water
I -- is calling
Ke Aloha No Kakou
GREAT Love suffuses us here
