The hospitality provided was only matched by the beauty of the property (we even grew accustomed to the soothing sounds of the frogs at night). We stayed in the Garden Suite, which was spacious, very clean, and had everything we could need. It was very convenient to be able to use the washing machine and dryer, as it was halfway through our trip when we were there. The breakfasts prepared each morning were some of the best meals we had on the island- the tropical fruit platter was particularly notable. Petra provided us with some excellent restaurant recommendations in town for dinners. She makes sure to greet each guest at breakfast, to offer suggestions and just check in. She gave us some great ideas for stops on our drive to Kona after we left Pahoa.
We particularly enjoyed the avocados from the tree in the backyard that Petra left for us!
We used Hale Moana as a base to explore Volcanoes National Park, and the lava flows/lava tree park in Pahoa and nearby. Even though the Volcanoes park was about an hour away, it was nicer staying in such a beautiful, secluded home than in the city of Hilo, and it felt like a refuge we came back to each night.
