          Aloha, We are looking to vacation with our 11 year old daughter this summer to the Big Island but want more of a home feeling rather than a hotel. Do you have any rooms with a couch sleeper or roll away bed? Or can you recommend a place that would accommodate our little family to give us that wonderful Hawaiian vacation home away from home feeling? Mahalo The Follett family ❤
