The B&B is located in a quiet residential neighborhood in close proximity to Hilo and several spectacular waterfalls and botanical gardens. The beautifully landscaped property offers breathtaking views of the sea and surfers in action in the morning. The oceanfront property provides a relaxing setting and the sound of the water lulls you into sleep at night. Breakfast takes place on a very spacious lanai with coloful decorations, offering good nourishment and delightful fruits. We stayed with our friends for four nights. In the evening, we always concluded our action-packed days with a relaxing glass of wine on the patio in front of our rooms, listening to the ocean and the concert of the tiny coqui frogs. Our hosts Maria and Ric were extremely friendly and helpful. When we encountered a problem with a local lava tour provider, they pursued the matter on our behalf to make sure we received a refund. To our surprise, upon our return home we found a money order for the full amount expended.
