“Awesome hosts, great place to stay”
Reviewed November 13, 2015 for a stay in December 2014
person found this review helpful

We arrived in the Hilo area and with no reservations. Our previous plans had fallen through. We lucked out and found this place and it truly was a gem. We stayed in their Lava Apartment. It was a perfect setting, easy to drive to any shopping, beaches, etc. Jim and Kepi are the best, very, gracious, friendly, and accommodating hosts, who we now call friends. We will be back and can't say enough positive things about their place.
