The Puna region is well worth exploring, and this B&B an awesome place to come "home" to. Yes, it rains a lot, but mainly at night. Yes, the frogs are noisy, but we missed them when we left. We preferred this side of the island to Kona. It's lush, green and less touristy.
Highlights: clean suite, good size, useful books, TV. Picking avocados and passion fruit fresh from the garden, drinking coffee outside the suite, listening to the birds, waiting for that delicious breakfast to be served. A very useful detailed map and great recommendations for things to explore. Unbelievable variety of vegetation. Fresh air. Slow pace. The absolutely best snorkeling nearby, safe and colorful. Delicious food in cozy restaurants. Interesting people. Normal folks. Beautiful scenic "Mango Drive". Hilo attractions, local farmer's market, zip line, etc. Lots to choose from.
Not to forget Petra's lovely children who accepted our son as a friend and made his one week stay at the B&B that much more enjoyable. All three of them were willing to share a bit about their lives in Hawaii with us. Vielen Dank!
