Great location just next to the lava coast. The access is slightly challenging but with Rachel’s instructions we were able to make it in the middle of the night. The cottage is very nice and as shown in the pictures

First, the positives… Location A+, coolness of being able to walk right out on the lava field A+, furnishings A+, cleanliness A. I’d recommend it highly if it weren’t for… Communications got a D. I am very happy that the previous guests experienced good communications from the host. We did not. The host never contacted me with information on how to enter the premises. We had no instructions on how to enter the home. Upon arrival, my sister telephoned, I texted the host multiple times at the number listed. She never responded, ever. (We had to enlist the help of the other lodgers at the property.) Directions contained factually incorrect items: the actual numerical address sign outside of the property did not exactly match the house sign numbers in the written directions. The listing promised washer and dryer. There was a washer and dryer in an outbuilding laundry room, but the door was locked. The house manual stated our key would open the locked door. It didn't. Because the host did not answer our telephone calls nor our texts, we finally resorted to e-mailing about the laundry room. She finally responded to e-mail, but after we had already checked out. In summary, you may enjoy this property if you have a high tolerance for flaky communication, complete lack of response from the host and factually incorrect information in the house manual. The property and the location are pretty cool. You may enjoy yourself. I am aware that I sound like a crank, but this arrival was my worst arrival experience on airbnb, ever. One other hint …. Improvement in directions: We had no GPS because neither our Verizon phone nor our ATT phone got any reception. So we had to rely on the written instructions provided by the host. We followed the instructions headed south on 130, but at one point, we faced an unexpected traffic circle. The host’s directions were completely silent on what to do when arriving at the traffic circle in the middle of 130. Using the only information on an address I had (Pahoa), I took the 1st exit, following the sign to Pahoa. Wrong. The correct instructions are: at the traffic circle, take the 2nd exit to Kalapana.

We loved staying at Rachaelle's place. The best part by far was its proximity to the lava field and the ocean. Despite all of the photographs I had seen of it, walking out there was one of the highlights of our trip.

The cottage is really beautifully set up and backs onto a gorgeous beach. You're in a great location for accessing the volcano and Pahoa is only a short drive away. We found Rachel to be very helpful, and was easy to communicate with. Overall, we had a great experience here.

Amazing place. Just like the pictures and description. Lava backyard!! Great hike to the lava flow (10-12 miles roundtrip). Fantastic place if what you are looking for is R&R.

Rachael is very nice, patient and very responsive. The cottage is very clean and stylish. You will get everything you needed in the kitchen. Also, the bed is very comfortable.

Amazing location right on the lava flow and the coast. Great to walk out for a hike from the cottage and to go out at night to see the stars. Quiet and secluded location but not far from beaches etc by car. The cottage was clean and very comfortable. The host has a great binder with local map and information on the area.

Rachel "Rachaelle" User ProfileRachel "Rachaelle" is a superhost.

I believe I live in one of the most magnificent places on earth, and I love to share the magic of Bali Temple and the surrounding area with my guests.

I have lived here for 7 years now, and I enjoy seeing Bali Temple guests having epic and transformative eco-adventure vacations while using Bali Temple as their springboard.

I love to travel, and understand how having the right accommodations is essential to your travel experience.

I live on the property, and am present if you wish to interact or I am disappeared if you prefer your utmost privacy.
