Private and quiet country setting in a 40 acre macadamia orchard. Lovely villa style home with beautifully furnished guest rooms, all with ensuite baths and ocean view. Immaculate housekeeping, friendly and helpful hostess. Two miles to the best snorkeling and kayaking on the island. Hour and a half to the volcano, and several good hikes closer by.

At this bed and breakfast, the owners really make all visitors feel welcome and at home! They go all out, from the huge(local) authentic Hawaiian breakfasts, to offering advice on places to see and visit while on the island. Thomas and Sharon truly enjoy sharing their knowledge

Aloha! Both responses are correct. All units are ground level, no AC and no TV. Birds are entertaining and the breezes keep it cool, especially in the evenings and mornings. September tends to be the hottest month of the year with December - April being the most mild. Mahalo!
