Good rest stop
Very quiet, close to the ocean location, except for the roar of the waves just across a country lane. Very friendly people walk by, owner very friendly and quiet and there is a small outdoor lanai with a table and chairs just outside the entrance, with a lava barbeque that needs a little updating. A few geckos greeted us in the tidy and clean basement suite as we entered and the air inside was very stuffy and needed airing out. A bowl of fruit was on the table and the full kitchen was well stocked with slightly older, but very sufficient appliances and was the only room with a ceiling fan. It also doubled as the laundry area. Bathroom is very tiny with a small shower and the bedroom was large with a great view of the ocean through an open lot across the road. It had a double bed and a moveable, pedestal fan for ventilation. The living area was stocked with two couches that were not really suited for sleeping on and a very small older television with cable reception and a DVD player. No WiFi inside the suite and we couldn't get internet either. There was not much air flow in the house even with the windows open. The oceanside location was suitable for us as we used it mostly for sleeping and during the day we ventured out to the many scenic vistas and adventures that were nearby...warm pools, tide pools, volcano, botanical gardens, Hilo area, nature walks, parks, wave watching and many more. It is also suitable for anyone who just wants a place to chill out and enjoy a nice quiet neighborhood with no real frills...no swimming pool or resort amenities, no large screen TV to watch and no WiFi. This is a chance to be part of the community with no time share hustlers and about a half hour drive to town facilities. It is quiet and relaxing but may not be for everyone.
