We stayed at the cabin last year and were very impressed. At that time, we wished we had even more time to stay and enjoy the area, so when we came back to the Big Island, this was on our list for a place to stay again. Jeffrey & Heide are wonderful hosts and the cabin is equipped with everything you need, including the softest towels in the world! We greatly appreciate the beach chairs, brand new, July 2014, took the plastic off them myself, the snorkel gear, new Aug 2013, again, first to use! Boogie boards, noodles & multiple beach towels. We would enjoy breakfast every morning looking out at the birds and animals, fresh eggs, fruit, bread and jams courtesy of the hosts, before heading out for the new day's adventure. The weather at the cabin is cooler at night (but not cold) having just a bit of altitude and you get some rain. To us, we like that because it's perfect weather for sleeping and keeping everything lush. We split our stay on each side of the island to cut down our travel, and hope Jeffrey & Heide let us keep coming back each year for our visits on the west side until we move! We really could write more! We've stayed in many rental cottages, especially in Hawaii, and this is a wonderful place to stay.
