Hale Alu-Lepe was a very nice, clean place. We had 8 people stay there for 5 days and we were really comfortable the whole time. The only thing we didn't realize is that the 8th person had to sleep on the couch. There is only one twin bed. The pictures on the sight can be a little deceiving. It wasn't a big deal. The upstairs kitchen/main kitchen has been recently remodeled and was very nice. One thing to note is that Pahoa where the rental is located is quite a ways from some of the main attractions of the island. You do have the tide pools close by which are way cool (excellent snorkeling). Everything else is a good 1-2 hour drive. It is Hawaii though, so for the most part the island is beautiful and makes driving enjoyable.
Great place overall!
