We loved the Steam Vent Inn! We regretfully only stayed two nights. Would have loved to spend another day lounging in their peaceful garden and their naturally heated pool.

(The Oceanside Ohana is a seperate house across the street from the ocean in a completely different towncalled Kapoho than was the Steamvent inn.) I paid in full which was big mistake. When I got there the cleanliness... More
