We enjoyed our stay at Seeker's Hive. The apartments are clean and the grounds well maintained - a relaxing oasis. They are kind hosts. Vijay is responsive and very informative on things to do on the Big Island.

Aloha Nhi and family, You kept communication from the start. We assured you that one of us will keep awake and check you guys in. So we do not understand what you would have done if you did not arrive by 10. You arrived before 10 and we checked you in. We are not a hotel though we strive and operate like one. We do not have paid employees to check people in and check out through out the day and night. We offer the best accommodation with affordable price and plenty of amenities for the price. We were happy to check you in; intact I kept in touch with you from the time you arrived at the airport until you were checked in. Thank you

I was delighted to find this place. The location was great for me because there is so much to see and do in the Puna region of the Big Island, and they have put together a booklet of all the activities and places to visit so you won't miss a thing. The place was clean and the hosts accommodating. The kitchen is shared and there is shared outdoor area which is very pleasant to be in and chat with other travelers. I highly recommend Vijay's place.

The accommodations have gone above and beyond expectations. We felt right at home from the very beginning. The owners were always available for anything we would need including information about the big island and some of the best spots to visit, ways to get to those spots, as well as restaurants and markets. Very private setting with a gate at the entrance, away from any neighbors or busy roads. Beautiful landscape with all varieties of flowers and trees. A kitchen with anything you would need to prepare a meal at home and a great covered lanai with ample seating and a grill. There is also a washer, dryer, and clothesline conveniently located next to the kitchen. The kitchen includes a full sized fridge, cook top, 2 microwaves, a blender, toaster, 2 coffee makers, and pots/pans/dish ware. The owner also provides coolers, beach umbrellas, boogie boards and other items for visits to the beach to borrow. A local convenience store less than a mile away with gas station and drive in food restaurant. Not only would we return to Seeker's Hive in the future, but we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay on the Big Island!

Vijay and Jay are great hosts. They make every encounter personal and their accommodation is located in the middle of a beautiful garden, one feels very secluded in a positive way. Relaxing atmosphere, very clean and friendly environment. We would come back again!

We stayed at Jay and Vijay’s place for 2 nights while visiting Kona. It was short but sweet stay. They have a really peaceful place with a beautiful garden and lots of interesting trees. Jay even took the time to show me around the garden, which they have maintained really well. We also liked the kitchen and the Pergola and found the amenities to be very convenient and sufficient. If you are staying at their place, and if you get a chance to taste their home-grown Papaya, do not miss it. These were the best papaya fruits I have ever had. SO GOOD!! The rooms are kept clean and we had the quietest sleep in years! I highly recommend this place. Our main interest in Kona was the volcano and it took only about 40 minutes one way to get to the park. We visited the park three times with no problem! Thanks Vijay and jay. We really wish we could have stayed longer!

Great hostesses. First time staying at a air bnb. They were friendly and nice people to chat with. They were kind enough to bring us some fresh fruit that they grew on the property. The bedrooms and bathroom were clean. Only draw back was sharing a kitchen with other guests on the property.

Response from Vijay:
Aloha Patricia, Thank you for the review. The description clearly gives information about shared kitchen, check in times, smoking designated areas and tax owed to the country, hence I am not describing again here. Kitchen is cleaned and mopped everyday; infact one of the days, you walked right into it while it was being cleaned. We take great pride in not only providing very affordable place for great amenities, also keeping the place spotlessly clean and neat. Guests also seem to enjoy the shared kitchen and the eating place Pergola as we observed with you and friend; it promotes friendship and contacts for people coming from all over the world as mentioned by you. Camera also provides the security and feedback. Thank you. Hope your friend was able to get good pictures with the long lense that Vijay lent.
