"What a wonderful spot to begin a 3 week vacation. We stayed here for one week; the view of the tide pools was forever changing depending on the tide. Snorkeling during high tide was fantastic, all kinds of fish. At low tide the inner pool was great for an afternoon float or walking all around the pools. Much time was spent reading outside on the patio or inside all with fantastic views when you looked up from your book. The downstairs covered grill area was great; the grill was in great shape. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!"

"We had the pleasure of staying at Michel and Duane's house for a little over two months. This house is wonderfully laid out that makes everything convenient. The kitchen is large and there is everything you would need. Everything worked well. The lanai gets a wonderful breeze and we enjoyed sitting out there in the evenings. There is a variety of fruits that grow in the yard that are for the picking! Plenty of water storage; there was a long period without rain and the storage at the house never went below 12 inches from the top.
The yard was immaculate. The entire property is fenced with a gate and a concrete driveway. I think this is a very understated rental. It is much nicer than the pictures reflect. I recommend staying there.
Thanks Michele and Duane for your hospitality and for sharing your home."

"Boy made us very welcome, which is always appreciated. The little cottage was so cute and cosy with its own little lanai in the rainforest with wonderful birdlife to watch over a coffee. Unfortunately we never had time to make use of the hot tub but it was nice that robes were provided for our use. The location to the National Park was excellent and the caldera is definitely worth a night visit, especially as it is only a short distance away. The drive to the tidepools and thermal pool on the far side of Pahoa for snorkelling is well worth it. The local village store was amazingly well stocked and well worth a visit. We like to support the surrounding businesses if we can. We had a great stay and it remained sunny the whole time. We would thoroughly recommend Boy & Debra's Place and should we ever be lucky enough to come to Hawaii again visiting our son we will definitely chose to stay in this rainforest hideaway again. Lovely!"

"My wife and I had the opportunity to stay at Shangrila for four nights in May. Everything about the experience was fantastic! Upon arrival Brady gave us a tour of all the features on the property and gave us some suggestions for local events that were taking place. The outdoor bedroom in the middle of the lagoon was fabulous and great sleeping outdoors and waking up to the beautiful outdoors. Snorkeling was great in the warm waters of the lagoon and the variety of fish was great to see. My wife fell in love with Charlie, one of the resident koi fish, along with the puffer fish. There were even four Humuhumunukunukuapua'a to find in the waters. There were bicycles for us to use and we went riding over to the Waipio Tide Pools just so we wouldn't feel so lazy lounging around Shangrila all day! The outdoor bathroom was a great feature and makes you want to build one in your own home one day. All in all a great stay in Kapoho! We hope to be back one day to enjoy again! Mahalo!"
