Perfect Spot off the Beaten Path!!!
"We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the upstairs part of the house and had plenty of room. Nice big living room and kitchen area with a very modern feel. I thought it was decorated very well with plenty of taste and suited our needs perfectly. More than enough cooking utensils with pots and pans and appliances to make anything you want. The house was very clean and well kept along with the neighborhood and general area. Has a large wrap around porch to sit out and enjoy the beautiful weather. The ocean was just a short walk across the street and can be seen from the porch. There is a nice little pond literally on the side of the house that wraps through a few of the neighboring houses that we swam in (has concrete steps right next to the house to get in). We split our trip up into 3 nights at this place and 3 nights in a condo/resort on the Kona/Waikoloa side. At the end of the stay we all wished we had just stayed here the whole time. It was very convenient to see the all Volcanoes and the waterfalls, rain forests, warm springs down the road, and botanical gardens. I think the Kona side is more "trendy" right now for tourists, but this side of the island is the true Hawaii for me. Thanks Jeana."

"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."

"What a wonderful cottage. We enjoyed watching the spray of the waves from the lanai and the peaceful neighborhood. We were fortunate to have found such a great place to stay. Lava certainly is different than I imagined."
