This is a great place to stay. Its right next to the National Park, you get your own house, and the grounds are wonderfully jungly. The current owners are extremely helpful and friendly, and full of good advice. I believe that they are trying to sell, but don't let that stop you coming here. The house can get cold; there is a heater, but we were not really expecting this in Hawaii. Its more a statement about our expectations, be we were glad of jumpers and waterproof jackets. The fresh fruit, fruit bread and coffee at every breakfast was delicious; and the bed was comfortable. The house included a good collection of books and games. There are 4 or 5 guest houses on the hide-away site, and you feel like you are living in the jungle. We were very glad to have found this place, and hope that it does not change.
