Aloha and Mahalo Bobi..
My ohana and I would like to say that even though we spent a few hours there at your place, mostly sleeping, we all felt the warmth and Aloha that your wonderful piece of paradise had to offer. I slept so well upstairs in the king bed of the Sundeck room and everyone else felt the same way. We had a great reunion with Nick and Ipo and all the ohana. My uncle and aunt from Hilo stopped by Sunday right before we left and looked the place over and was overwhelmed by it�s beauty and charm. My brothers and I topped off our weekend stay with a small ping-pong tournament which we also enjoy dearly.
So on behalf of my ohana and I, would like to extend a great big Mahalo for the opportunity to share your little piece of paradise. We will definitely refer others and look forward to our next visit to beautiful Kohala.
