Private bedroom with your own separate entry & mini refrigerator is partitioned from the rest of the house. 2 guest rooms share one cute bathroom, located between the 2 rooms. The separate screened-in kitchen gazebo is the eating area, with 2-burner propane stove, sink, cooking supplies. The filtered water is safe to drink. Walk 3 short blocks to the ocean cliffs. We provide a guide of what to do in the area after you check in and are here to answer any questions you may have about what to see.

The space

Our house has two guest rooms (the other guest room is "Ocean Breeze") with one shared bathroom which is separate from where the Hosts live. Your room has a separate entry. The room is for one or two people, no additional guests allowed. Everything is clean! Linens are cotten. Parking is close to your door. You will share the cute and clean bathroom with the guests in the other rented room. Both rooms share the screened-in kitchen gazebo in the private back yard, which includes a glass top table for two, two burner propane cook stove, coffee maker with paper filters, sink, dishes, cookware, and a glass top table for two. You have a clean mini refrigerator in your room. The close by covered BBQ area also includes a propane cook stove top and seperate eating/relaxing area. All of our water is filtered, sanitized and safe for drinking. The bed is a high-end, great 9-inch memory foam mattress! The room includes cable flat screen HDTV, wireless high speed internet, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, ceiling fan, floor fan, fire extinguisher, flashlights, beach towels, bath towels, drinking glasses, bottle/opener, umbrella and a mini refrigerator. No smoking and no pets on any part of the property.

If you need more room, the other guest room available in this house is Ocean Breeze.

Guest access

Your private room has a separate entry door only you will use. Included with your room and the bathroom you share with the people in the other guest room, you have access to a large open area in the backyard, which includes the screened-in gazebo kitchen, a lounging area under a tarp-gazebo with barbecue, and access to our beautiful & relaxing landscaped lava garden with a variety of palms, fruits, flowers and ferns. Walk three short blocks, and you will be at the ocean cliffs! Walk along the cliffs and sea arches, look for dolphins, turtles along with whales (when they are in season), and walk either direction as far as you like and enjoy the crashing waves! Snorkel gear is available for your use.

Interaction with guests

The portion of the house we live in is at the other end of the house. Don't worry about coming in to your private area through your private door late at night; we won't hear you. You will have complete privacy, please respect our privacy. If there is a problem, we will be there to help you in anyway we can.

Other things to note

The sounds of the night will include the waves breaking at the ocean edge, the loud coqui frogs serenading you, and the pouring rain. They all sound wonderful! You can sleep with the door and the window open, screen door closed, and really feel like you are part of the Hawaiian jungle. If you close it all up, it does quiet everything down quite a bit! You will awaken to trade winds blowing, singing birds and sometimes a couple of roosters.

Jim and Carol were extremely accommodating, their place was amazing and the stay overall was fabulous! The room was lovely, the outdoor kitchen and barbecue were great and everything was clean and comfortable. Jim and Carol were exceptional hosts. They gave advice on how to find lava, which was our highlight of our trip, advice on driving routes to take and were generally very helpful (including when our car broke down!) Would happily stay again and highly recommend. (P.s. advice would be to take bug spray if you sit outside!)

Highly recommend staying here. The room is clean and has all the facilities you will need in a great setting and close to all the best attractions Jim and Carol are very knowledge about the local area and have great tips for seeing the best of the big island, they were also very obliging and helpful when our luggage got lost on the trip over, arranging for the airline to drop our bags off.

An absolute perfect base for your island exploring trips. Jim and Carol will have all the answers for you regarding hiking, lava viewing, shopping, eating out and all you can think of. Perfect stay in a spotless family home, room with a private entry and bathroom shared between 2 rooms. Don't worry about the shared bathroom, I've never met anyone and it was fully booked out. Garden kitchen has all you might need for quick breakfast/dinner. All is spotless! Wifi works really good and the front lava flow garden is absolutely amazing. You can't go wrong here!

I had a really nice and comfortable stay at Carol's place in Keaau. The room was a lovely modern guest room with private entrance and shared bathroom with the one other room. The outdoor kitchen area was also well equipped and you have access to everything you might need. The area is residential but easy reach to the main road and from there to shops, restaurants and all the sights near Hilo and Volcano. Perfect base for exploring the Big Island, but maybe not the place if you are looking for more privacy or a holiday retreat.

We had a fantastic stay at Carol's house. The room and the bathroom are super clean and absolutely gorgeous. The kitchen in the garden is fully equipped and works very well. Totally recommend it if you need a place around Hilo.

We are a fun couple, enjoy nature, both of us work as tour directors. We are happy to laugh with you and share any knowledge we have that can help your adventure in Hawaii. Your area is separate from ours, so you can be as private as you like. We love the sun, gardening, walking and hiking, music and wine, and relaxing in the ocean water!
