I have a good friend that lives on the Big Island of Hawaii (Kona side). She runs a coffee plantation and a small Mac consultancy in her spare time. I’ve enjoyed her coffee for a long while (if only post was somewhat less expensive!).
She also rents out a room on the coffee estate for you to rent. The rate is US$50/night plus 12%tax). This is a real bargain near some great snorkelling and diving locations. The house is high enough up in the hills for good sleeping (and of course good coffee). And the place is pretty quiet which is good if you just want to get away from it all and chill.
Although the pictures are not the most artistic, Mahi House itself itself is fairly new – with parking!
The room is also nice:
So if you are heading over to Hawaii and looking for a bargain place to stay, please let her know (MahiHouse@Yahoo.com).
