The Mahalo Hawaiian Retreat is a very nice setting, a bit remote, and very quiet. On the bad side, the bathroom was not clean, full of black sand from earlier guests. The water kettle in the kitchen was so rusty, we decided not to use it. The worst was that they promised breakfast, so we did not bring any from one of the big towns. However, the caretaker insisted that it was not included, even though we had a print-out of the email that promised the breakfast. Finally, he brought us breakfast for one morning (as a courtesy, he told us). As we stayed for four nights and as in Volcano there are only two rather small supermarkets, overpriced and not with a really good selection, basically, we ran out of food.
