There is minimal reception for television, radio or cell phones in Wood Valley. There is a phone but a phone card is required for long distance calls. You can log on to the internet using a dial up service. Cell phone service is available 5 minutes away.

For those unfamiliar with Solar power usage everything is the same as being on the grid except for the limitations on how many electrical appliances you use at one time. We don't recommend blow drying your hair, ironing clothes and toasting bread all at the same time...otherwise it is just common sense. The generator turns on with a key and is very quiet. If there is not enough sun to charge the batteries you may need to run the generator in the evenings to recharge the batteries. Longer stays need to be more aware of this and there are complete instructions provided in the cottage. You will be amazed at the efficiency of solar power and you may even consider installing it yourself. This is a great way to experience living off the grid.

We have even installed a back up water system which leaves us completely self sufficient for at least three nights in case of an unexpected water line break which can occur with tropical storms in Hawaii. It is our mission to provide our guests with the up most assurance that your safety and enjoyment is our priority while staying at Hale Aloha Aina.

Best Place Ever

Does it get any better than this!! We don't think so. This place turned out to be the number one place we ever stayed at, five stars is still not enough. Finding this place was like winning the lottery for us.

When we arrived the cottage had been prepared as if they were expecting royalty. What a way to start a vacation. Getting there from the airport was easy and an adventure in itself. We loved the feeling of seclusion the very tropical area gave us and picking lemons from trees right outside the door for lemonade was an added bonus. This cottage had everything, there was no adjusting or going without here it was like your own home away from home. Don't worry about being too secluded though we found it to be an ideal location to see all the sights this island had to offer.

All our friends want to hear about the helicopter ride over Kilauea and the road trip to the top of Mauna Kea but we always start out by saying you should have seen the cottage we stayed at on the Big Island. It was my pleasure writing this review for the owners of this cottage they have given us such cherished memories and we will never forget our stay at the Hale Aloha Aina or Tom & Missy Powel.

It's not often when your expectations are exceeded, but this was one getaway that exceeded in every way. We've never been able to find a place that we thought, "wow, we would love to retire here in 15-20 years." Now we can no longer say that and unfortunately anywhere else we stay will have to measure up to Hale Aloha Aina and Wood Valley. Magical, inspiring, and oozing serenity. After putting miles on the car each day and spending time at all the amazing sights, we were extremely grateful to have this home away from home to come back to.

For those of you debating whether to book this oasis, don't hesitate. Our only regret is that we went somewhere else for our second week. There are so many things to do and see - we felt like we were exploring new worlds every day. 100 year old lava with barely any vegetation, and around the bend the lava was lush with vegetation. After two weeks of non-stop travel we realized we had only touched the spots we wanted to see and in our mind are planning how and when we can go back.

The erupting volcano was an added bonus - to experience the power and understand the impact was like nothing we had seen before. From an educational perspective it is simply amazing - and the concerns about vog seemed rather overblown. Once you live in a major metropolitan area and live with pollution every day, vog is relatively harmless.

The grocery store in Pahala doesn't look like much, but once inside you realize they have great variety and the prices are very reasonable. We only found this out at the end of our stay and wanted to pass on this tip.

If you are planning a trip to the Big Island, have a wonderful time and make sure to include a sojourn at Hale Aloha Aina. You won't regret it.
