The location is perfect (so long as you have a car) to be able to get to all the Southern and Eastern locations like the Volcano and lava flows, Hilo, and Mauna Kea. There is a full kitchen with everything you could need, and the rooms all come with great little extras like coolers and snorkel equipment and even a flask (they think of everything). Deborah lives onsite and manages the property and was extremely helpful with great suggestions of markets etc. There isn't any air con in the rooms, which isn't too bad if you're out and about all day, but can get a little warm in summer at night. Just remember that you're basically in a jungle (the property borders a wild expanse of rainforest jungle which is lovely) so there will be some frogs singing (and jumping around the property) and a few bugs but they are pretty well kept under control. Cannot recommend this place enough and if I ever make it back to the big island, I would definitely come back to stay at Gail's. Thanks so much for a wonderfully relaxing visit.

Spent a sleepless night due to heat, humidity, and noise from the indigenous species. Home is not air conditioned -- I should have researched the climate during August for SE coastal Hawaii and searched for air conditioned accommodations.

Gail's place was definitely a great deal for the price. The house was super relaxing and the room was beautifully presented and very comfortable. I would definitely stay again. I really appreciate the hospitality and overall stay. Many mahalos!

We really enjoyed stay at Gail's and Deborah's. Our room was clean, comfy and nice. Besides the towels we were also provided some other traveling equipment like snorkel and cooler, which was very nice! We didn't get to meet Gail in person, but it was nice to meet Deborah. They have fresh home grown fruit for guests, which is a nice bonus ;) if you are looking for comfy stay with private bathroom and privacy overall you have to consider this place. Oh it also looks even better in person than on pictures!

I loved staying at Gail's place. She and her co-host Deborah were warm and helpful. Gail not only provided a comfortable and clean room but I was able to enjoy avocado and passion fruit straight off of their tree. When an airline issue changed my timing at the last minute Gail kept in touch and was incredibly flexible. I'd stay with Deborah and Gail again in a heartbeat
