The reason why you may not see too many reviews for this place is because it perhaps is not used as often as it should be due to it's very unique location and relatively new opportunity for stay. It was built just a few years ago and is very green, wind and solar energy only as it's supply of living.
THE BEST PART: SUCH A UNIQUE LOCATION - RIGHT ON THE LAVA BEDS AS THE NAME APPLIES!!!
Dave & Charlene are a great couple, very willing to help out with questions, flexibility in scheduling, arrival, departure, etc. etc.
Arriving to their location does take some more specific direction and one who has to be able to follow such direction. We are able to find it in the dark but would highly advise others to try to find it when light out (before 6:00 pm., etc.)
BEST part was watching the lava flow down the mountain at night on the back porch. You simply say that about any other place on the island! Additionally, Dave offers personal hikes up to the mountain and is willing/patient enough for all levels (or lack thereof) experienced hikers.
The room was comfortable and the hand-designed decor was very accomodating. We liked the trim design in particular.
We originally planned on only staying there one night but because we thought the landscape, location, and experience was so unique, we decided on staying a second night - we were that happy and/or impressed!
Note: Only a one room B&B but they have had more than one couple stay but used an air-mattress in an off-room to accommodate more than two people.
Laid back pre-Californians which makes any stay enjoyable, feeling welcomed and homey, etc.
p.s. - like the picture previously submitted, we TOO also saw a rainbow right in front of the house after a small misty rain with the end of the rainbow being only 10 yards or so away from the house. They say it happens very often so who can say they actually get to see the end of the rainbow?
