This was one of the most unusual stays we've had. We selected this after reading a review in The Big Island Revealed.
We arrived, my husband checked us in and we never saw anyone again! We knew breakfast was on our own and it is close to Waimea so this is not a problem. It was just a bit odd. Note: We did not go in search of anyone, but were in the main house a number of times and saw nobody.
The main house is really unique and has an amazing history. Originally owned by the manager at the Parker Ranch and then sold to one of the Rockefellers, it has such potential, but it is like stepping into a time warp. We did not stay in the mainhouse, but in rooms that were connected to the mainhouse by covered walkways.
The rooms were spacious and clean. There was room for the kids to run around and the gardens were pretty.
The furnishings are dated - some 70's, some Victorian, some in-between. And the place needs some tender loving care as many buildings as this age do. Wifi did not work in our rooms (not a problem for the adults, and it was nice to see my kids playing a board game!)
The hightlight of the night was eating at Merriman's which was a 3-5 minute drive away.More
