Thank you Victoria and Nicolas, we loved having you here with us, and wished you could stay longer! You jam packed a lot in, in just a few days and we both enjoyed having your good energy around the land. We look forward to seeing you again one day in the near future! Mahalo. Marc & Ishika

We loved the Steam Vent Inn! We regretfully only stayed two nights. Would have loved to spend another day lounging in their peaceful garden and their naturally heated pool. The steam vents were amazing too. I loved the care the owners have put into the grounds, creating a real oasis. Make sure to try a smoothie at breakfast.

I don't understand the bad reviews, you can always go see the steam vent...

(The Oceanside Ohana is a seperate house across the street from the ocean in a completely different towncalled Kapoho than was the Steamvent inn.) I paid in full which was big mistake. When I got there the cleanliness...
