Baan Sabai Dee
Reviewed 7 August 2008

We reserved our vacation prior to seeing the bad review and were really worried. We even tried to find alternate accommodations but couldn't find anything available. Imagine our surprise when we got to the house and found a wonderful rainforest paradise! We found the house clean, pleasant smelling and in the best location! The hot tub was our favorite! I couldn't get me wife out of it! We followed the managers suggestions... grilled up dinner in their gas grill, soaked in the hot tub and then enjoyed a great bottle of wine in front of the wood burning fire place. It was such an enjoyable time. We can't thank the owners and manager enough!

This is one place we will visit again and again!

We were very unsatisfied with this place the minute we walked in. Our 2 year old daughter immediately said "This house smells bad," and still refers to it as stinky house when she sees it in pictures. The house was extraordinarily mildewy, and the owners knew it. They had charcoal and expended mildew absorbent materials all over the house. Although the house is in a rain forest, but we've stayed in dozens of Hawaii places and the mildew in the air at this house was the worst. Two of the bedrooms were unusable. Even the matresses were moldy underneath the sheets. Too bad the owners didn't care enough to read the remarks past guests left in their guest book.

To make matters worse, the power went out during our second day and never came back on. The owners/managers were not reachable until two days later. Considering the house's neglect, we suspect the hosts forgot to pay their utility bill.

We'd never stay here or with these owners-- ever!

We decided to stay two nights near the volcano, to get the most of our volcano experience. What a great decision! Through an Internet search, we found "Hawaii Volcano Vacations". They manage several cottage rentals, one of which is Baan Sabai Dee. It is a 3-bedroom cottage, in the middle of the rain forest, only a couple of minutes (drive) from the entrance to Volcanoes National Park. After spending a good part of the day exploring the volcano, you can go back to a quiet, relaxed setting... rest up in your own private hot tub... then go back to the volcano and watch the flowing lava light up the night sky as it meets the ocean. We used this destination as a little break from the sand and ocean. After visiting Maui for a few days, we flew to the Big Island, drove right to our volcano vacation rental, then drove to the Kohala coast via Hilo for a few more days of sand and sun. This also allowed us to experience the entire Big Island. It is definitely worth it to stay (at least) a couple of nights near the Volcano! Baan Sabai Dee was an excellent choice!
