This spot is not for everyone, but if you just want a spot to sent up tent or you're traveling alone and want a single bed for the night it's not bad! It is a nice location near Hilo and while I was here I explored Rainbow Falls and hiked to the lava! Theo is a wonderful host and will tell you all you want to know about the island so be sure to ask her questions!
