We have traveled in several countries and I believe this is one of the nicest B&Bs we have had. I agree with previous reviews that the home and the hospitality of Jane & Linus Chao are exceptional. It is a quiet setting with very attractive grounds, yet convenient to Hilo, the Volcano and Puna area. We had warm, generally sunny days in late January. We had all the privacy we wanted and still the opportunity to meet and have interesting conversations with the Chaos. Fortunately we were able to extend our stay an additional day here and explored the Puna coastline; not to be missed.
