This is in the Puna district of the Big Island. One can easily spend a week within a half-hour drive of the cottage. The Red Road (Highway 137) is an official Scenic Byway, and is the longest, least developed coastal road in all of Hawaii. This area is known for being very LGBT friendly.

Other Things to Note
