Lodge we have taken the best ideas we have seen in our travels and put them here for you......
Over time we have evolved
the Lodge into a facility that offers almost everything the Budget traveler could desire. You
can bring your own tent and pitch it in our beautiful camping lawn area or you can luxuriate
in our new Deluxe rooms with private ceramic tile bathrooms. Between these extremes are bunks
in our dormitories or our private bedrooms with shared bathroom and kitchen for the more economy minded.
We have Free 24 hour in-room Wifi and one free fixed iPad during office hours, you can visit the town, supermarkets, or the mall by taking the $1 county bus, or using our inexpensive bicycles or you can walk to our nearby coastline with daily Turtle watching and Whales in season. We are 300 yards from the only white sand beach on this side of the Island.
Our expeditions are world famous and provide everything from the heat of close up Lava viewing to the chill and rarified air of 14,000ft (4200m) Mauna Kea Volcano for Sunrise or Stargazing expeditions. We show you waterfalls and valleys of tropical splendor and we can arrange anything from flights over the Volcano to scuba diving to a great healing massage. Backpackers, hikers , bikers, astronomers, climbers and travelers of every age group and nationality visit us and take advantage of our friendly service, our great tours and our convivial atmosphere of shared adventure.....
