Exceptional 10.0
Quality accommodation in beautiful setting. Breakfasts were excellent and everything brought together by the hosts Kerry and Karen for whom nothing seemed too much trouble. New Zealand hospitality at its best. Thank you once again Kerry and Karen for a delightful stay.

Do yourself a favour if you are heading to Pahoa. Karen & Kerry run an exceptional B & B second to none. Gold Class facilities, delicious breakfast to die for plus fascinating hosts who go out of their way to make your stay memorable. A bit of paradise!
