Beautiful cottage in the forest. Quiet and peaceful. Had everything you need. Very close to Volcano National Park. Recommended!

Recommended for calm location surrounded by tropical forest and birds, and easy access to Volcanoes National Park. The porch is a great place to listen to the birds. The decor was fairly basic and utilitarian. The lighting is a bit harsh with bright CFL bulbs. I think the host is…

Easy to communicate with and perfect location near the Volcano National Park. Very clean and well laid out space for 4 people in a very private area. We enjoyed our stay very very much!

Leslie's apt was not fitting for four people including kids. The guest sofa was just too uncomfortable to sleep in and we couldn't wash our clothes - which with kids is a bummer when it rains. Also, the internet did not work - unfortunately. This of course can happen but it added…

Response from Leslie:
Thank you for a true accounting of your feelings. Surprisingly enough, the majority of our bookings are for four guests.. and to date, we have had very happy guests, partly BECAUSE they knew ahead what they had booked. I received a call upon this guests arrival that THEY THOUGHT THEY BOOKED A TWO BEDROOM. They did not book appropriately for their desires. To hold our place as inadequate does not feel like a fair representation. There was no attention to our listing or the house rules which should be read before completing a reservation. (or material after the reservation) I did credit for the internet which is unfortunate. (TO CLARIFY- we are switching providers as the repair to outside lines by our current provider is too slow. Will be done Feb 24, meanwhile it is intermitten. Our w/d is available for stays of 4nts or longer-we have some limitations as short stays create our own laundry impact for our catchment and septic system- we keep it accessible as its a great luggage rack! This is also my first sofabed complaint, though I understand its not a favorite for most.. we do have sofa bed topper on it) We try to have a fantastic value and create an 'experience' for you... but a good one! I'm sorry this was not a happy one, its hard to have it happen.

My father was in the military so growing up I moved often, having gone to six different schools. After I graduated high school I myself moved to Hawaii, and have lived here 35yrs, so this is home. I worked mostly in the 5star resorts in either the tennis or boating industries, …
