Beautiful historic home on a quiet street in a small town. Not much around but a great retreat if you're prepared.

First night in one cottage - electricity went off for 2 hours. Owner showed up with a candle after 1 1/2 hours. Same night, roosters crowed the entire night. I was told that just how it is. No attempt at fixing problem. Moved me to another cottage some frog perched outside bedroom windows and "screamed" the entire night. Again told that was common in Hawaii, no attempt to remedy the situation. Had to sleep with earplugs in the living room. 3rd place, the fire alarm went off sporadically during the night. Not beeps, but alarm went OFF. Told to change the battery. I was to find a ladder and a battery at 1 in the morning. Listen, these people shouldn't be renting out rooms. Each place had simple problems like a toilet out of order, leaky faucet, no hot water. They had no clue and didn't care. To boot, I caught them feeding the chickens. No wonder they had rooster problems.

This was like a comfortable older home. We had a full size kitchen, nice dining and Livingroom area plus 2 bedrooms and a large bath. There were ceiling fans in all but the bathroom. The duplex unit had front and back porches with furniture. The only problem was the large collection of restrained roosters on neighbor properties. They would all start crowing very early every day.

This place might be good for a large family or group of friends who want to have a place to crash when diving or hiking in the vicinity of Black Sand Beach but should know in advance that it is in a remote part of the island and should stock up on groceries, toilet paper, shampoo, soap and kitchen needs before leaving the vicinity of Kona or Hilo. It's a long way to restaurants, stores, attractions. For those who only want a bed an a bath it's roomy and quaint, but is definitely not a motel or hotel. View of the junkyard next door is interesting.

Three stores, a Longs/CVS pharmacy, small store open at night and market are less than a block from the house. It is 25 minutes from the volcano with many restaurants, 15 minutes from a village with restaurants and a bar, 6 minutes to Black Sand Beach, 7 minutes to Ka`u Coffee Mill. Walk to parks, pool, gym, post office. Surrounded by macadamia orchards and coffee farms. House has ample cooking equipment, cable tv, wifi. The neighbor for this house has old cars in the yard, recently revealed when they cut down the tall hedge which we are replacing with a fence. Sorry about that view from one one side of the house. The back looks out into a big yard, local foliage and monkeypod trees. This is not a resort. It is a farm town surrounded by nature. Mahalo for staying with us.

Dirty, Smelly, torn sheets

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: New sheets, new pillows, new shower curtain, a regular cleaning after guests leave with a disinfectant.
Location: This location is roughly 15 miles south of the Volcano National Park. It is also close to a few really nice restaurants.
Pahala Plantation Cottages – March 5, 2017 to March 10, 2017 My wife and I had a 2pm and after check in window on the 5th, and were stunned when we were getting voice messages at 3pm, as to when we would be checking in. I never had a place do that before. Typically, if you get there between 2pm and 6pm, everything is good without a late arrival notice. Having gotten her worried voice mail, we cut short our vacation exploration and drove over to the office. As we got out of the car, a lady came down the sidewalk to meet us. She was complaining to me that she didn’t know if we were going to show up or not, and this was 3:15pm. She continued complaining to me that she had another guest and didn’t know where she was going to put us up. She turned around and went back to her office to work it out. I slowly followed her and when I got to the screen door to the office, I noticed a dog inside that was not friendly and the office was a disaster. I turned around and decided to wait for her to come out. About 30 minutes later, she came out and declared that she figured it out and that we should follow her over to the cottage we would be staying in. We got settled in the cottage, a duplex dwelling, and began to discover the horrific condition the cottage was actually in. The bathroom reeked of urine, the toilet had yellow stains around the bottom of the toilet where it meets the floor, and the shower was dirty and smelly. The pillows were extremely sweat stained, the bed sheet

Horrible conditions.

Cockroach and big infested. Very outdated and unclean. Felt like a haunted second hand store. Would never stay here again. Needed major renovations and updates. Area is a small non tourist town. Nothing open after 5

Quaint little cottage

Pros: 2 bedroom, 1 with single beds.
Cons: Nothing, but be aware that it is rustic. It's older.
Location: Near Black Sand beach, Volcanoes National Park, coffee plantation just outside of town.
Cute, furnished, rustic, 2 bedroom little cottage close to Black Sand Beach, Volcanoes, and coffee plantation. It's a quiet area in a small town about midway between Kona and Hilo along the southern part of the island. One of the bedrooms had 2 single beds in it, which was perfect for the kids. The owners were wonderful, nice people that gave us tips on places to go. We would definitely will stay there again.
