This is an amazing place, and I can't recommend it enough. The owners are attentive, and fun! Everyone I met there was helpful and pleasant, and the place itself is gorgeous. Easy trip to downtown Hilo, and yet you feel a million miles away

The Jade Cottage is ? When we were there the TV did not work. The shower had a ball of hair in it. The table on the lani was falling apart. I am sure these have been taken care of, but were disappointing for us.

We stayed one night in a ground floor room. No stairs and a walk in (if fairly narrow) shower. Gentle slope (asphalt) down to the breakfast area from where you can view the waterfall.
