"My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It exceeded our expectations hugely. Only about 40 mins from Hilo and a short 5-10min drive to the volcano national park. Very easy to find with the directions given by the owner Dennis. This cottage had everything we needed plus more.
Dennis was great with communications prior to our stay and was happy to help with any questions.
I would recommend this to everyone!
Thank you so much Dennis!"

"Four of us (two couples)spent three lovely days at the Pond House as part of our week on the Big Island. The house is not fancy, but unique and charming. We loved the screened porch where the furniture was comfy and a cooling breeze relaxed us in the evenings. All the plants on the grounds are so lovely. The kitchen had everything we needed. We enjoyed the beautiful tide pools each morning where snorkeling was awesome. After our morning snorkel, we would go out exploring the area. One day we took the road to Kalapana. Enjoyed the beautiful scenery along the way and then was fascinated by the lava that buried the town. The pond house is about 45 minutes from Volcano National Park so we spent a day there. Enjoyed pizza and aloha at Boogie Woogie pizza in Pahoa. Also went to the Mauna Loa macadamia nut factory in Hilo- lots of free samples! All that said, if you want an impeccably clean place, go somewhere else. This is jungle living and there were some ants in the house and also geckos that left their poop here and there. It's not close to restaurants so you'll need to plan accordingly there. We loved our time at this home."

"This treehouse was Amazing. Skye has done wonderful workmanship in this treehouse. He has thought of everything to make this place exceptional. The trees growing with in the house are spectacular. You look outside the window and he has grafted beautiful anthuriums all around the house within the trees. The only thing I wish was to have spent more time there. Thank you Skye for sharing this amazing place."
