The best part of our trip
We loved our stay in this place. It was really cozy and very clean. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, pots and pans, wine glasses, etc. When we first entered, we were greeted with numerous bouquets of fresh flowers all over the home. These types of little touches were everywhere. Tons of luxurious towels, a great master bathroom and walk in shower, soft bedding, and incredibly comfortable beds and pillows, which can be lacking in many vacations homes. And it was so nice to return home on a chilly evening to a warm fireplace powered with a simple push of a button.
The neighborhood was lovely, the neighbors incredibly friendly, and the house is less than a ten minute walk from the Volcano Winery. Our original plan was to stay only a few days in the house, and then head back to our usual vacation spot at the Mauna Kea Resort. But we enjoyed the house so much, we decided to cancel our Mauna Kea reservations and spend a week in the volcano place. It turned out to be our best Big Island vacation to date. The area offers so many amazing hiking and exploring opportunities. And we were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the nearby restaurants. The Kilauea Lodge is great for breakfast and lunch, and the newly renovated Volcano House Restaurant is a not-to-be-missed experience. Where else on earth can one dine on the top of an active Volcano, watching the glow and billowing smoke from the pool of lava below? It's incredible, and the food was perfection. Tip: make reservations and ask for a table by the window.
There is a fantastic farmers market on Sunday morning, only a five minute drive away. You can pick up tons of fresh produce, jams, cheeses, local organic meats and chicken, etc. Between that and the amazing restaurants, we really didn't need to do much grocery shopping.
We will never again visit the Big Island without a volcano stay. And Linda, the owner, was so kind and accommodating. Stay here. You will not be disappointed.
