The accommodation is open to the elements with beautiful views but is screened in to keep mosquitoes and bugs out. The screens do not keep geckos out, but they are harmless. To avoid gecko droppings, the host puts a painting drop cloth over all beds to maintain cleanliness of bedding and towels until the guest's arrival. This is typically placed under the bed while guests are staying, allowing guests to cover the bed while they are out during the day.
Be kind to the environment and take care of the surroundings.
It is at the discretion of each individual host as to whether the booking can be rescheduled to another available date. If you cancel at any time, you will not receive any refund.

Glampers can enjoy spectacular views from the top of Mauna Kea Volcano, the tallest mountain in the world from sea level. There are amazing beaches too, like Punalu’u Beach (Turtle Beach) and Papakolea (Green Sand Beach).
