Dannan was very kind and welcoming even when we arrived 30 minutes past the designated check in time. He was extremely hospitable and enjoyed sending us to catch the best areas in Puna. Very cool guy

My husband and I are vacationing for two weeks at a resort on the Kona side of the Big Island. There were several things we wanted to do on the Hilo side, so we wanted a reasonably priced place to stay near Hilo for a couple days. Dannan's place seemed like a good fit for us. This was our first time booking through AirBNB. I was at first because we typically stay in hotels when we travel, but Dannan's place has so many glowing reviews from past guests, that we decided to give it a try. Good decision, because our experience was nothing short of positive in every way. Dannan was a wonderful host and it was obvious that he takes great pride in making sure his guests are comfortable and have everything they need. I was concerned about the fact that the property didn't have AC, but we were absolutely comfortable even though Pahoa was experiencing unusually warm weather. The kitchen is available for use by guests, which we appreciated. There is a well maintained pool, as well as a huge patio out back. The property is in a residential area with easy access to beaches, Volcano National Park, Hilo, and the charming town of Pahoa. And I loved falling asleep each night to the sounds of the jungle. So very tropical. As a host, I would give Dannan an A+. Staying in his home was like visiting with an old friend for a few days. Communication was excellent even before we arrived. Dannan had recommendations for area restaurants, short cuts to beaches, and even a masseuse. If you have any questions before booking, Dannan responds very quickly and is most helpful. Added plus: the sweetest big dog Kona lives here and I fell in love with. I can unequivocally recommend this property and host. Thank you, Dannan, we very much enjoyed the two days we spent at your place.

Dannan has a great place and he is the perfect host! He's very knowledgeable on the local sights. I wish we had booked more time with him instead of bouncing around the island as much as we did. Thanks so much! Jessie and I had a great time staying with you!

Staying with Dannan is like staying with a good friend. He's friendly and made you feel at home. We planned to just sleep there for a night on our way for island loop but found out all the hidden gems of Pahoa from Dannan and decided to stay longer. It was worth it. Amazing time in hot steam ponds, tidepool snorkeling, and hiking to swim with giant turtles.

Dannan's place was the perfect spot for my adventure on this side of the island both in terms of location and in atmosphere. Dannan is a sweet interactive host and offered lots of suggestions for things to do in the area. He made me espresso in the mornings and I enjoyed our conversations over coffee while listening to some music from a band I didn't know about. His great dane, Kona, is a giant, gentle, sweetheart. I did one of Dannan's tours on my last day which was a highlight of my trip. Dannan is an excellent guide and adjusted the tour to suit my preferences. I felt comfortable and welcomed and had a great time. Thanks, Dannan!

We found Dannan's place to be the perfect launching pad for our adventures on the Puna district of the big island. It is close to fantastic snorkeling (Kapoho tide pools, Champagne Ponds), and near the peaceful little town of Pahoa (good breakfast and coffee at the Tin Shack), as well as the end of the road at Uncle Roberts (more stars out there than anywhere on Earth I think). He was able to offer snorkeling equipment as well as paddle board tours and other fun adventures. Dannan was welcoming and helpful with suggestions for food and fun, has great taste in music, and Kona the giant sweet dog was a welcome bonus. The accommodations are not fancy but the bed is super comfortable. Ask Dannan if he has any ripe white pineapples in the yard- so delicious!
