We are on day 12 of our 17 day stay here at Dan's place and we (myself, husband and 16 year old son) are enjoying it very much. The cottage is small, but utilizes the space very well - kitchen, living room, dining room and home theater all in one room, which is also able to sleep two people on the futon.
The kitchen is adequately supplied with dishes, Teflon pots and pans and utensils.
The bedroom queen bed is very comfortable - firm but not too firm. We keep the windows open all the time and sleep without the luxury comforter.
The night sounds are of gentle rains, crickets and a large frog but no loud coqui frogs because the ducks and chickens eat them. The morning sounds are of roosters, ducks, chickens, and the neighbor's dogs, cow and goat. It took me two days to get used to the roosters, but now I actually sleep better once I start to hear them.
Speaking of chickens - right outside the entrance door a chicken lays two organic eggs for you every other day!
The bathroom is very nice with granite tile floor, full tub and shower with darkened glass enclosure, full wall mirrors, and funky ceiling and sink lighting. The sink is actually marble with a water fall faucet.
The property is on two beautiful, private acres with lots of tropical trees and plants. The palm tree lined driveway is an adventure (ungraded), but having to drive slow for the ducks to get out of the way tones it down.
The location is very convenient to Hilo, Kilauea, and lower Puna and is very easy to get to.
Dan is a very gracious host and is eager and willing to please in order to make our stay as pleasurable as possible - and it is.
