Reviews from the Guestbook (just a few of them): GREAT EXPERIENCE, GREAT PLACE TO STAY Just would like to thank Babette for her kind hospitality. We only stayed for 2 nights, but our experience was great and very accommodating. We arrived very late the 1st night, and even though she was asleep, we were able to get into the cottage and enjoy our first night. The location is great. Very clean, private and cozy. Everything you need for cooking is available. We would not hesitate to stay here again when we return to the Big Island. Thanks again! -- Dale, Toronto, July 2012 Date of Stay: February 2012 Thanks so much for sharing this space. Delightful! I wish we had more time to spend here, however we may return some day. Lovely and Comfy! -- L + A, Vancouver January 2012 We loved to be here at this lovely place almost at the end of the road. We would like to come here again to see you, and to rest in your pretty guesthouse. Thank you very very much for two beautiful days. January 2012 Brad and I couldn't have spent the new Year in a more lovely and peaceful setting. Many thanks for your kindness and creating this lovely ohana sanctuary. We look forward to our next visit on this side of the island. December 2011 Ines and Jens had a winderful time here, we found everything we needed, and loved the peaceful atmosphere of your fantastic cottage. Thank you Babette, for setting it up so nicely and also thanks for the good information about the area. We enjoyed a lovely guitar concert at Kalani on Christmas eve. We loved the snorkeling at the tidal pools, views of the lava flow, watching the huge surf along the coast, and walking along the amazing structures of the lavafields for hours. Review Submitted: December 20, 2011 Date of Stay: December 2011 Gracias and Mahalo for this time at your cozy cottage. We enjoyed the cogui (frogs) at night and waking up to sun light pouring in through the windows. We were relaxed by the rain falling outside- and we were absolutely awestruck by the stars here. This Oliana Guesthouse was the perfect location for our excursions to Volcanoes National Park, to Hilo (the botanical garden is gorgeous there), to visit Kalani down the road a for a relaxing cranio-sacral and lomi-lomi (massage) sessions, and more! We highly recommend Yara Nui as a delicious, fresh, local and organic restaurant at South Point. Also, we were stunned at the magnificence of Green Sands Beach. We did realize this was a Hawaiian Homelands, so like all visits to sacred sites on Hawai'i this one welcomes/calls for deep respect. From you Babette, and from locals, we have experienced a very warm welcome. Aloha and abundance to you, N + K (from Austin, Texas) P.S. The buddha presence made the abode all the more peaceful. Namaste! Review Submitted: December 11, 2011 Date of Stay: February 2011 Thank you for our stay. We enjoyed our volcano watching! -- S+J, Norway, February 2011 Date of Stay: April 2011 Thank you so much for renting out your awesome vacation cottage!! We had an amazing week here in this tiny piece of Heaven.... The sound of the ocean and frogs every night was peaceful, as well as the full moon and tradewinds.... The black beach across the road was our favorite place - end of the road, hiking on lava, Kona mudpie milkshakes, good Thai food in Pahoa, tide pool snorkeling, warm ponds, etc. We'll definitely be back. Thank you again, your friends, J + S More
