This home is off the beaten path from Hilo but we loved the area and all the surrounding vegetation for privacy around Zen Lite. My only two complaints was the hair dryer did not work and we were wishing the refrigerator was larger with some freeze space for ice. The bed was comfortable, plenty of towels, lots of hot water. Loved hearing the tree frogs every night! All in all a beautiful place!

Overall we loved the place-the location, price, landscaping, privacy, furnishings, cleanliness, the outdoor shower, the lanai, the buildings architecture, the washer and dryer (so important with so many trips to the beach!!) and the geckos. The minor problems did not detract much from our stay. They included that if you are 5'4" or shorter, getting in and out of the bed will be challenging as it was so high and the refrigerator definitely needs defrosting and/ or replacing-it didn't keep things cold so some food spoiled early and making ice cubes was impossible. Also the quality of the water was so bad, i.e. so salty, that we had to go out and buy bottled water just to be able to have potable drinking water and to make coffee. Also had to buy more toilet paper as not enough was supplied. But again, let me stress that these were minor inconveniences and we'd rebook in a flash if we could afford the airfare!!!!

I really love this cottage and all its detail with the Cedar and teak wood walls and ceilings in bamboo floors I would definitely stay here again. The only thing it needed was a CanOpener which just needed to be replaced

This is a very nice and well kept property. Sett in a nice well vegetated garden atmosphere. It has all the things you need for self catering. Does not have a TV but who needs it when on holidays anyway. The outdoor shower is very nice and novel. Other bathroom facilities are inside. Quiet location on the south east coast, only minutes walk to the black sands beach, best visited on weekdays as the weekends can be a bit crowded. We had 4 nights here and could have stayed another 4 easily. The little lizards are very cute, we had no trouble with any bugs the place is well equipped with insect screens on the windows and door.

This place was just as advertised. We loved it! Beautiful location, simple home. It was the perfect way to spend three nights on the Big Island. Priced right for what it provides. If you want unique, and you do not need all the frills of a condo, this is for you.

Spectacular.We had a wonderful time and enjoyed every moment we spent there.I have never before experienced the stars they way we did on a clear night, absolutely incredible.The black beach around the corner is also unbelievable and magnificent. Secluded and beautiful. Be careful of the surf, it's much stronger than it looks.I would definitely go back even to just have some more fresh orange juice and passion fruit each morning.Thank you.
