At the End of the Road Bed and Breakfast

While we were visiting the Volcanoes National Park, we stayed at "At the End of the Road Bed and Breakfast." I decided to write about this place because we had a beautiful time there. Even though our visit was short, the place and the hosts are definitely worth writing about. Their hospitality and kindness were unmatched and if we ever go back to the Big Island, we would definitely stay here again.

Ray and Lani - The Hosts

It is the home of Ray and Lani and they are both super sweet. There are just two rooms with private bath, which I thought was great because it didn't feel crowded or loud. The rooms have large, glass windows which overlook a beautiful, green garden. It's the perfect place for some peace and tranquility. 

We woke up in the morning to the sounds of birds and the sun shining on the green all around us. They had everything we could possibly need in the room. The bathroom was fully equipped with all the toiletries, towels and hot water. The room that we stayed in was for two people and the room next door could sleep three people.

The Living Room
Ray and Lani were both very welcoming and did everything to make us feel at home. They gave us a nice variety of options to choose from for breakfast. I loved the fresh papaya. I'm not big on fruits but I just loved the papaya.

My breakfast plates
So you can see, I had bagel, croissant, banana bread and papaya. There was butter, jam and toast as well with a glass of juice and a cup of coffee. During breakfast, we were also joined by the family next door which was wonderful because it's always great to make new friends. What more could you want in the morning? Great breakfast and great company. 

The Dining Room
We were talking about how we didn't get a chance to see lava and Ray, so kindly, hooked us up with this lava viewing tour. I'm so grateful to him for doing this for us because if he hadn't, we would've never seen the most spectacular thing we had ever seen, yet. He even printed out a map for us so we could find the place. How many people bother to go so far to help strangers so they can have a good trip? We were so pleased at the couple's gestures. We walked in smiling, we walked out happier.

The Entrance
If we were staying at some hotel, there was no way we could have known so much about the place and the tours. At the same time we got to meet some wonderful people. This is the first bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at and we were a little skeptical about it. But I'm so glad we came here.

If you ever plan on visiting Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, this is the best place to stay. It is located at the end of Haunani Road (hence the name) and the house is built on 6.5 acres of rain forest land. It is a mere five minutes drive away from the park and a variety of restaurants. You definitely won't regret booking this place.

In the end, we'd like to thank Ray and Lani again for making our trip so memorable. If we ever come back to the Big Island, we'll plan a longer stay at this wonderful bed and breakfast. 

Loads of love!
