Interaction with guests
I am here to assist, in any way, if YOU want. I am quite familiar with the Puna District, & Hilo areas. If you have any questions, PLEASE ask! I recommend 'Hawaii, The Big Island Revealed' aka the 'Blue Book'. I also learned there is an 'app' 'Gypsy Guide', however, i have NOT used it, yet..

About the neighbourhood
this is a residential neighborhood, so yes, there are school buses, dogs, & chickens around, it's all part of the Puna ambiance! Feel free to take a stroll around the neighborhood, see how the rain forest grows! Vacant lots of jungle/rain forest are on each side of the property.
Some fun facts:
Oh, yea, we have COQUI Frogs! A tiny guy, with a big voice. At night, mostly, the males 'chirp', looking for love... Their song is similar to crickets, & often mistaken for birds!
There are no snakes in Hawai'i, however, there are some unwelcome guests, it's part of living in the rain forest. We do our best to keep them at a distance, & they were here first, for the most part!
Instructions for garbage/recycling are available at check-in,
Car recommended
How to get there
Google Maps is actually quite accurate, altho the pronunciation of some the Hawaiian words needs a little work, very understandable, it's not an easy language!!
When your reservation is paid in full, email addresses & phone numbers can be exchanged, & directions, & check-in info will be sent, in plenty of time...
