We stayed twice with Kurt and Kana. The location is somewhat tricky to get to the first time. If in doubt give Kurt a call and he will guide you in. This location is on a mountain side and secluded with fantastic views of the area and best of all Kealakekua bay. The first thing you will notice is the... More

“Crow's nest on the top floor was wonderful. The other two rooms were well regarded by other guests.”

“The Pacific room is the largest in the main floor, large walk in shower. The Crows Nest on the second floor gives you quite a view.”

“We stayed at the "nut room", which is quite small for four, but it was the only one available when we booked. The "crow`s nest" is certainly the nicest room.”

“The Nut Room has TWO beds, and is the most economical - great for not only a single parent and child (our situation), but also for two friends traveling together who are not a couple and don't care to share a bed.”
