                                What a great escape! If you love to be near the water and love to snorkel and explore, come on and stay at this wonderful house. The best snorkeling on the Big Island is here with the Champagne Pond two blocks away and a view from the deck like nothing other in the early morning and at night. Stars for days and days to be a star in this great retreat. If you like remote, this is for you. Pahoa, which is about 20 mins away has some great restaurants and a cash only market and a great natural foods store. This place is changing like crazy, so get there before the natural life is all lost. Last 'real' Hawaii is here. The conservation area, which is a short walk or drive, is spectacular with snorkeling pools of splendor. Coral and sealife everywhere. Watch the tides so you know when to see the sea turtles in the Champagne Pond. They come and go with the high tide. You'll sleep like a baby here, with the winds and rain that happen to pass in the evening and early morning. Too splendid for your get away. Enjoy.

                                Clean, comfortable house. Nice water feature in yard--a warm secluded pond to sit in and watch the stars. Near to a lot of great activities by car or even walking distance for some. Nice wrap around deck with some ocean view & shade options. Friendly, helpful owners.

                                What a lovely home and location! We came to The Cedar House not knowing exactly what to expect and we fell in love with the place. The house is situated with a wonderful breeze and beautiful views! We loved sitting on the lanai, watching the birds by day and stars by night. We found the house to be very clean and well-maintained, which made for a great stay. The famous Champagne pond is just a short, easy walk down the road and is always just the right temperature with clear water to enjoy. Also, the snorkeling at the neighboring Wai'opae Ponds is some of the best snorkeling on the island, with easy enjoyment for any levels of expereince (beginner to advanced). During our stay, we went on an exciting guided hike to see active lava flow - it was awesome! We've never seen anything else like it! Also, Pahoa is a small town about 20 min. away with some great Thai food and other restaurants. We would absolutely recommend this place to anyone that is considering a visit -- and we have every intention of returning!!!

                                The house is in the perfect spot to enjoy the wonderful Champaign Pond, located a short 5 minute walk away. This location allows you to easily enjoy all that the Kapoho area has to offer, geothermal heated ponds, tidepools for snorkeling and the ocean right down the street. The house has beautiful grounds, lushly landscaped and has an incredible view from the deck. It even has its own natural hot pond to splash around in. Paula, the owner is one of the most accommodating people I've ever met. She tries to make sure that everything goes smoothly. We really enjoyed our stay.

                                My husband and I stayed at the Cedar home in May 2012. We had a very good time in Kapoho! I have visited to Honolulu many times, but it is my first time to stay in Big Island. This area is very different from Oahu. The natural scenery is unique and wonderful!! The champagne pond is nearby. It is very unique spot!(^^) You can hear sound of champagne bubble. All Tide pool is warm and very clear, so we enjoyed snorkel and swim. We are from Japan, and I can’t speak English well. But Paula is very kind and provide intelligible informations for me. I appreciate her support. Unfortunately, I missed the turtles. We will be back to Kapoho in the future!! A and T

                                Three generations of my family just returned from a stay in Hawaii. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house was comfortable and its location in walking distance to the warm pond was great. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant, a great place for a walk. The kids enjoyed chasing the geckos, toads and anoles, and we all enjoyed the chorus of frogs and toads to sing us to sleep. The occasional rain squall passing through was just right, long enough to provide a change of mood and cool things down but not so long as to ruin any plans. We all hope to return.

                                We stayed at the Cedar home in March 2009 during my kids spring break and enjoy the lush, not crowd side of Kapoho-Hilo area. Definitely need a car to get around because of the remoteness, but very near the ocean. Cooked meals mostly at the house. Champagne pond is a great place for 1st time snorkelers and kids. Not a sandy pond area, but walking distance from the house. Even got to see a turtle there. The conservation marine area a short 10 minutes drive was magnificent and going there during low tide is much different than going during high tide. Within ~40 minutes from the volcano and not too far to watch the volcano erupt in the evening into the ocean. Explored the Hilo area waterfalls, town and restaurants. Great place to relax and enjoy the lush tropical area. Paula was very helpful too & very responsive.

                                Our stay at the Cedar House for the windward portion of our visit to the Big Island exceeded our expectations. A very nice house, uniquely located, we were able to experience much of the windward side with ease, including Wiapi'o Valley and Volcanoes Ntl Park. The Champagne Pond was so unique, and made for great swimming a short walk from the house. We did swim with turtles there. It's close proximity to the lava flows allowed us to hike to them outside of the official viewing times, which provided for an up-close and memorable experience. The Kopoho tidal pools nearby are great for any age. If a unique Hawaiian experience is one's desire I would highly recommend a stay here.

                                A wonderful, quiet location - waking up and going to sleep to the sound of the birds, the wind rustling the palm leaves and the waves lapping on the nearby beach was just what we needed to fully relax us. The scenery in the local area is like nothing we have ever seen before. The children enjoyed snorkelling in the local ponds, especially as they saw a good variety of marine life including turtles. Our three children did not miss their play station, computer games or TV, and we liked the fact that our cell phones rarely got a signal. The property is as described and is well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped and there is a good variety of books in the 'library'. A car is essential as the nearest town is about a 20 minute drive away, and Hilo is about a 40 minute drive. We made two trips to the Volcano National Park and the drive across Saddle Road between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa is well worth doing if only to experience the different climates between the East and West coasts. We also drove around the entire island, stopping off at various beaches along the way. Paula is a very friendly, caring person. She made us feel very welcome when we met her. All in all, if you are looking for a holiday where relaxation and a slow pace of life is the order of the day, then you can't go wrong with this place. We would wholeheartedly recommed this property. Our only regrets are that we were only here for 5 days, and that it is too far away from us when we return to England. Having said that, this Island is only holiday destination that we have been to that we were truly sorry to leave. We will be back at some point in the future.
