Hale Pikake was an older home but it seemed to be fairly well maintained. It was well equipped with blankets and pillows and the beds were comfortable. It was quiet and yet really close to the Volcano National Park entrance and the village. We stayed for just one night.
The two things that we noticed that weren't optimal were that the filter under the house (my father in law checks *everything* out) seemed a bit small and looked pretty ready for a change. That said, we drank the water (before he'd told us) and it was fine. It seemed to come from a rain cistern. The second thing was the request to not leave the heat on when away and not to let it run overnight. We stayed at the Park watching the crater spew lava into the wee hours so when we arrived back at the house to go to bed, it was FREEZING. Even worse? Getting showered in the morning in the super cold bathroom with super cold tile floor.
I'm glad we only stayed the one night as I don't think I could have handled showering in that bathroom more than one morning, lol!
All that said, if you aren't a super picky traveler, this was a fine place to stay, especially for the price and the proximity to the park.
