We chose this house in Pahoa for the location and price. Although there were just two of us, the 3-bdrm/2 bath house would be comfortable for 6. The great room(living room, dining area, seating at kitchen island/kitchen is large and there is a washer/dryer on the carport. The kitchen is well appointed for cooking, WIFI works well, good breeze with open windows and floor/tabletop fans for each bedroom. Unfortunately, we experienced a power outage(due to high winds/downed trees) two of our three days there so we didn't get to take full advantage of anything electrical. We were thrifty with the hot water and still had warm showers and recharged phones/kindle/camera in car. The next door neighbor was kind to offer to charge electronics(he had a generator) and use of his outdoor grill. Since we were out most of each day, the power outage was a minimal impact. Contacted the owner just so he was aware for next renters as the outage was predicted to be days(maybe a week) and I know he was working to find alternate arrangements for them. We visited the Tropical Gardens, Lyman Museum, Hilo Farmer's Market, Volcanoes National Park. Since the power was out in Pahoa, some restaurants were closed but we ordered take-out pizza from The Black Rock Cafe which was good, ate great burgers and local beer at the Burger Joint in Hilo, also had a good meal at Pesto Cafe in Hilo. I would recommend this to others for a clean, roomy and affordable base to explore this region of the Big Island.
