My husband and I recently celebrated our 25th anniversary in Hawaii. Staying 2+ weeks at Zen Lite. We have traveled to Hawaii many times. For the last 5 years, we have rented privately owned properties. Zen Lite is not the average. The owners truely understand the concept of Aloha, and share it freely. Zen is clean, comfortable, quiet and very peaceful. The owners have created a magical garden. Flowers surround you and fill the air with spicy sweetness The location is perfect. We found the dining in Pahoa to be excellent. (Try Ning's Thai). As of September 07, the Volcano view after dark at Kalapana is the best we've ever seen in over 20 years of Puna vacations. Kalapana Cafe (formerly Verna's) at the end of the road has good Ono burgers and the short hike to see the new beach is well worth it. If Old Hawaii and Aloha are what you seek, you've found it at Zen Lite.
