After staying in a hotel in Hilo on our last trip to the Big Island, I wasn't really looking forward to going. Staying at this wonderful B & B made all the difference! We were able to truly experience the Island more fully and enjoyed it so much more. Irene is a wonderful hostess and has the attitude my home is your home or as we say at home, mi casa es su casa. The house is a spacious, comfortable eclectic with a little Hawaii flair and a little old country flair as well. The breakfast on the veranda was great with fresh pineapple, mango, papaya, avocados, and orange juice fresh from her garden along with other delightful treats. I hung out at the house while hubby was working and enjoyed the peace and quiet and beauty of the tropical rainforest. Neighbors dropped by and everyone was extra friendly. Got up one morning to go to the geothermal pool *(The Hot Pond) on the beach just minutes a way and next time I go, I will swim everyday, it was wonderful. Uncle Robert's Nighttime Farmer's Market was a short drive, a great party and great food, also on the beach. Mostly locals go to these places but they make you feel so welcome! I would recommend this location and experience to anyone wanting to feel like the Island is their home! Lots of places to eat nearby. The restaurant voted best of that side of the island is minutes away too and it was fantastic. Kaleo I believe it was called. Like someone says, the road is rugged to get there but that part of the road is not long. If you want to feel like an insider instead of a tourist, do this. You'll love it.
