On my next trip to Hawaii, I will definitely look forward to spending more time at this collection of rustic cabins right in the middle of the Hawaiian mountain rain forest. My wife and I stayed in the commodious and homey Twin 1 for two nights and had an enjoyable stay.
The nights were cool and damp (remember that this is the mountain rain forest) but the beds were cozy with electric mattress pads. It is so close to the national park that we were able to stay late at the park for the night viewing of glowing lava at night Halema`uma`u crater & still be back at our cabin in minutes.
The breakfasts are self-serve, low-key, and tasty and include local tropical fruit, hard-boiled eggs, bagels, cereal, etc.
Alan was friendly, helpful, and hospitable, and so was his dog, Hina. We also enjoyed seeing the cows & ducks!
