“Life in the tropical forest of Hawaii”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2010

We stayed 4 days at this house located 11 miles away from Hilo, near the village of Honomu. The place is perfect if you're looking to be away from everything for a couple of days. It sits on 2 acres of land in the tropical forest, consisting of banana, mango and avocado trees, and it's recommended to have a 4x4 to drive on the last part of the road, since it's pretty bumpy, although a normal car can also make it without problem. The paved part of the road getting there is quite spectacular, passing through a small tropical valley with giant trees all around.

The house itself is spacious, with 3 large bedrooms, living room and kitchen/ dining area. There's a great view of the Pacific ocean with the sunrise every morning. The area is obviously very quiet. The eco-green aspect of the house was not a problem for us, we always had enough water (rain catching system) and electricity supply was fine (solar panels). The only problem we had, and we mentioned it to the caretakers of the place as well, was the fact that the kitchen was not equipped well enough (ie: no toaster or microwave, plastic glasses, no wine glasses, etc ...). Also, there's no cable or Wi-Fi and we could only find 1 TV station available. For the internet we were able to get a connection at the village, which is about a 5 minute drive away. As well, the place could have been a bit cleaner.

Overall, it was a good experience and was an interesting change from the dry and sunny resort areas on the other side of the island.
