Per Dave Ewing, owner...he is shutting down the B and B to focus on his Pahoa coffee shop and to do lava tours from his Kalapana location. I highly recommend his tours - we went last night to the ocean entry and oozing lava above that we could go "poke a stick" into...outstanding! He runs small tours at a fair... More

We stayed with David and Charlene for an unforgettable trip to see the lava flowing into the ocean. Our hosts quickly became out favorite people as they shared themselves graciously with kindness and caring attention. Their place, an artistically delightful mix of zen simplicity and natural elements is open, spacious and immaculate. Even though it is right on the lava... More

Our family (two adults and boys, 17 and 13) had a great time being guided to lava flows by by David. We felt safe on the whole trip. We loved the hike out, enjoying all of the textures and unusual formations of the lava beds. We got a lot of information about what it's like living out there on the... More

We did the Lava Hike a few days ago. What an experience! There were a couple of nice flows, directly into the ocean. Very impressive and the pictures we took were amazing! For us, the hike was about 2.5 miles to the lava. We started at 4pm. David will provide sticks for you to play in the lava with. We... More

My wife and I were fortunate to go on a lava tour with David last night. As other reviewers on Hawaii may note, there numerous tour guides to pick from...we thought David was an excellent guide, knowledgeable, chatty, friendly and safety conscious. The trail out to the lava flow is a 2 hour hike at the moment, but can vary... More

I originally chose the location due to it being "a bit different" and close to Volcano National Park. The house is a beautiful wooden structure built right on top of the 1990 lava flow and looks like nothing I have ever seen before. I arrived late evening after dark and Charlene was busy flicking the lights on and off to... More

The reason why you may not see too many reviews for this place is because it perhaps is not used as often as it should be due to it's very unique location and relatively new opportunity for stay. It was built just a few years ago and is very green, wind and solar energy only as it's supply of living.... More
